One issue that has been giving me trouble with all of this is a herniated disc in my L5-S1 vertebrae. It makes it difficult to relax. I rarely sleep/make OBE attempts on my back because of it. Laying on my side is much more comfortable.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you and working together to have more easily-accessible, and more vivid OBEs.
Hello and welcome to the Astral Pulse!  smiley

 I am a "side sleeper" as well. That doesn't interrupt my practice at all. It is important to find a comfortable position. Otherwise, you won't be able to lose your focus on your physical body.
 This technique here is very easy and can be done as you are falling asleep. You can also precede it with a "mental affirmation", somewhere along the lines of "I am LUCID in my Dreams, KNOWING I AM Dreaming". I find affirmations a great way of "allowing" yourself to have a non physical experience and Lucid Dreams are part of that package.

 You can find many other techniques in this Sub-Forum. They are "stickied" there, thus making them easy to find!

Hi,

I'm a 26 year old male from the Eastern United States. I've always had an interest in OBE's ever since I was about 15 years old. As of now, I have never had a consciously induced OBE. I did have a semi-conscious OBE that manifested from a lucid dream once, but it only lasted for a few seconds and my excitement woke me up.

However, I let the distractions of life get the best of me. School, getting high with my friends, video games, excessive sleeping, etc etc.

Well, now, I graduated school, I have a law degree, and now I'm back at it. I wouldn't consider myself a total noob but I am definitely a noob at this.

One issue that has been giving me trouble with all of this is a herniated disc in my L5-S1 vertebrae. It makes it difficult to relax. I rarely sleep/make OBE attempts on my back because of it. Laying on my side is much more comfortable.

I also used to be a daily cannabis smoker but recently I stopped smoking because I am getting drug tested for a job. I'm going to see how it affects my ability to have an OBE, and if its positive, then I'll probably stop smoking almost altogether.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you and working together to have more easily-accessible, and more vivid OBEs.

Thanks for reminding us of this very simple yet effective technique. It comes down to holding our focus away from the body while falling asleep. I will switch from my own technique to this one for a while and report if it works for me.
A good practice is getting used to these "directional points" during the day as well. Just close your eyes for a few minutes and lock into a direction. Become aware of it. Feel it or feel the "pull" from it When I do that, mental associations almost immediately follow the thought of said direction. Many times that will lead to a experience/adventure and now you have successfully Phased. It can be that easy once you learn to "allow" it to!

 I personally like the option to pinpoint 6 directions, as I have said many times throughout this thread. That gives me 5 other choices, if the first one doesn't "feel" right!  smiley

I'm glad you liked it, Lu! I love quantum physics, especially the string theory. They have an episode about it as well. It really portrays the behavior of the smallest elements just like the non-physical energy behaves (we've seen it) and they are boggled by this fact. Well, if any of them can learn to AP, they will have a field day in the non-physical LOL and have many revelations.
That's why I like Dr. Michio Kaku so much! He is a great mind, great speaker and he shows passion in his chosen field to boot!  cool

 There is a great Documentary on Netflix. I forget the name of it. But the show is about 9 different Scientists from all genres, talking about their own fields of study. Once a person is interviewed, they themselves become the interviewer for the next person and so on to the end. One of the Scientists in the show talks about "Time" being his field of study. They are using machines/technology to pinpoint the "exact time" according to Quantum Physics. The show was really good. But I love watching the Science Channel and other Science related Documentaries, so I am used to talks of that nature. Very intriguing!  Like with all Science today though, it is "subject to change".

 Edit: The Documentary was called "The Most Unknown". I had to flip through at least 100 Documentaries to find it again. I never realized there were so many Documentaries on Netflix!  shocked

 I am waiting for the day when they link Consciousness with Quantum Physics as a professional field of study. Forums like the Astral Pulse will be overrun then!  smiley

That was a great Documentary Lightbeam!  cool

 I have watched other videos in the past from the "Fabric of Cosmos" lineup and their presentation is exceptional!

 ...and any video with Aliens riding bicycles is a must see in my opinion, lol!  grin

Grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change,
the courage to change the things we can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

That's basically what we must do in this crisis. Just repeat this in your mind whenever you are stressed.
