You hit it right on the head!
Accidental validations vs. forced verification's. It is nice to have a controlled validation and I have had them, but
not like the accidentals.
I would strongly suggest that you put together when you project, document the date, time, experience, and break it down to controlled, accidental, precognitive obe, etc.. This data once collected over a period of time will give you the *proof* you need. Plus, it is documented by you and be honest when you are going about this.
The very first thing you will want to do is grab the notepad, audio recorder and dictate the date,time, nature of the OBE. Once that is completed, save it, archive it for later reference if needed. You don't want to contaminate the validation with altering the experience or twisting it to validate physical to astral to match.
I give you an example:
In one OBE, it was a false awakening. My wife came into the room, looked down at me, got into bed and we held each other. Minutes later as I broke out of the false awakening, the same event occurred note for note. I didn't say anything - it all happened just as it did in the false awakening. This was just not one time, we are talking multiple times with different variations.
I immediately documented everything so later I could review this data and not edit, enhance, or add to it later.
Another example: I was in OBE, saw a playing card and returned back to the body. Immediately, documented the whole experience. A day later I was jogging, I came up to a playing card at my place of work in this neighborhood on the sidewalk face down. Of all places yah know and WHY? So take a guess what the card face up was?..

This was the first time that I had setup the experiment with the cards. My wife placed one card on the bedroom door and another card on the door that leads to the mudroom and to the outside the house. Both cards were faced down taped at the top. I figured this would be a great experiment and not to hard to miss since I would be projecting into that path.
The cards were placed on the door about 3-4 weeks ago and it took me that long to finally wield the results.
Anyways, roughly around 3:30AM 7/14/2005 I awakened into the trance state after have gone to bed about a 1/2hr prior. I did feel the vibrations and realize that I was rather in a good stance to project. As always, I just rolled out off the bed and onto the floor. I knew exactly what I wanted to accomplish and that was to view the card on the door. I floated around the bed frame and pushed my way towards the door. I was able to pull the card off the door and view the number and suit. The card that I read was the King of Diamonds. After that, I lost control and was pulled back the way I traveled around the bed-frame.
The weird thing is that when I was on the bed, my astral body was upright and my legs were on the bed. Basically, sitting upright on the bed and during that time I was spinning around in circles. I felt the physical body trying to re-align my astral inside of my physical but just couldn't. I had to actually had to lay down and focus and could feel the alignment kick in.
I kinda of wonder if this would be a good technique to prevent from coming back into the physical if you want to stay out longer?
Now, the next part is interesting because I thought I had awakened in the physical. I could see my wife Katie and she said to me "Wow, that was fast for you to verify the card". So we both went over to the door, pulled the card off and this time it was 8 of hearts.
Finally, I physically awakened and realized what had just occurred. So I grabbed my notepad, and removed the physical card off the door and went into the kitchen were there was light. I would be able to write the notes and see the actual card. To my surprise the physical card in the bedroom was 2 of hearts. Even though it wasn't the 8 at least I got the suit correct.
I decided not to remove the card on the front door leading to the mud room because I would again try to project later. Date: 7/14/2005

Subject: Card Verification Experiment #2 God is the Famous One
Well, at 10:46AM I was able to project and this time no vibes were present. I did hear music from this astral projection subliminal tape I listen to physically and imagined myself rolling inside my physical like a log quickly turning.
Getting out of the body was a breeze and I moved quickly to the front door with the objective of reveling the second card. At the time, I was able to see the card and make out the number, contents BUT the problem that occurred which wasn't really a problem. I was able to stay out of body for 10-15mins exploring everything around me. I knew at the time if I was to abort the projection and come back that the experience would be cut short. So I decided to put the card in my pocket for when I would lose consciousness I could quickly look at the card upon returning and have a better memory.
Well, never a less I didn't realize this experience would be very beautiful, moving, and so inspirational that I forgot about the card details. During the experience I ran into two teenagers that I had asked if there were deceased and they both laughed at me. After that, I saw 3 black people, 2 men and 1 woman. I had asked them specifically if they were deceased and the black woman said "yes and that God is her savior and glory to be" I told her that I was sorry to hear that and agreed with her about her statement.
The other elements of the projection is that I was in a backyard which to be believed by me I was located at my mom and dads in the astral. When I was on the back deck, there were many flowers growing. Red, Pink and White in one flower petal. so I decided to pull the flower off and smell it. I could sense the texture, winkle touch and smell the scent of the flower. After that I turned to the sky and said "God, I love you and Thank You for this gift". Also, I asked help from a higher source like a angel or something from God. When I looked at the sky I could see a shimmer of a ray of light beam thru this pine tree and out from no where was this bird. The bird was a size of a watermelon, almost like a blown up puffer fish. I asked this bird at the time if you/it/he/her was my helper and it nodded back to me gracefully shaking his head up and down.
There's more to this experience and probably would take another 2-3 pages to detail, but I picked out the beautiful highlights of the experience. Imagine if I had aborted the projection upon verifying the card what I would have lost...!
When I finally returned back to my physical body, I went to the kitchen room and removed the card off of the mud room door. The physical playing card was the Jack of Diamonds.
What is truly interesting about this experiment is that the first projection and the false awakening the both times that cards matched the suit.
Astral Bedroom - card I read was King of Diamonds
Physical Front Room Door - card is Jack of Diamonds
Physical Bedroom - card was 2 of hearts
False Awaking Astral Bedroom - card I read with my wife was 8 of Hearts
What I think happened is that in the first projection and false awakening I had already read both cards. So if I was reading the card in the bedroom, I would have been actually reading it in the front room kitchen door and vice verse. I know that the card in the astral that I tried reading on the second attempt was not suit or the number on the physical cards. I am going by gut instinct and vague memory.
The odds of having the same suit in one astral projection and false awakening attempt is 416 to 1. I still have more experiments with the cards but for a first time shot - pretty dam good!!!Date: 7/14/2005
Later that day I was on my break jogging. I've been jogging at work for 15Min's a day for the last couple of months. Along my travels there was a playing card face down on the cement. I did not pick the card up because I wanted to finish my jog. Date: 7/15/2005
Anyways, I came up to the card again on my daily jog this evening and still faced down.
Out of curiosity I picked the card up.. To my surprise it was the Jack of Diamonds.
So what I am trying to say is that these experiences do offer proof. Maybe not right away in this case, but it happens. So be diligent and active in documenting.. The more data you can obtain - the picture will paint itself to knowing it is real!
All the best,
