When Im deep in meditation.
I find that my head starts to turn by itself to the left..
But it FEELS, like I am looking FORWARD.
Its a most peculiar sensation.

And I dont understand why my head turns/tilts to the left....

Anyone else have sensations like that?

amazing aint it, on my early atempts, as i was in the paralysed part, i managed to use my astral arm and reach for my face to touch it, only to find that my hand when right through my face! so i tryed to get out of my body as one would try and get out of bed, but i managed to get halfway, at that point i said it was pointless to get out, since i did not have much obe experience than, i than forced my self to wake up, instead of being half way out, i was lying there in my original position.

i found it fairly easy to induce vibration state by visualising 'phantom limbs' until they felt real.  i used to lie in bed and relax like usual and swing my feet (not my physical feet).  It starts to feel real and after a while you have to actually stop and think whether you are actually moving them or not.  keep going and then... bzzzzzzzzzz
peace

One category of experiences that I have tends to happen in the mornings, when I am sleeping in. Usually I doze fitfully on those mornings.

I will be attempting trance, and certain that I am not asleep. I will not have vibrations (I rarely do anyway) or even feel like I could pull away. My sense is that I'm just lying there waiting for trance or something to happen.

So I am still very aware of where I am, my body, etc. It seems clear to me that I am awake.

I'll then decide to pull out one arm or both arms. it will feel like I am moving my physical arms, and it takes real restraint to not just grunt in disgust that this is stupid because I am just moving my physical arms.

After I try some maneuver (usually grabbing my astral hands together to see how real they feel, or perhaps some sort of bending exercise to see how flexible etheric/astral matter is) I'll finally let myself open my eyes and I am certain by this point that I will see my physical arms doing all those things. To my relief, my physical arms, every time, have been lying on the bed - I haven't felt them, used them, moved them. It always blows me away a little. There is no discernible break in consciousness at any point.

This morning I had one of these experiences. It was unique because as I was experimenting with my right arm (and certain again that it was my physical arm) I decided to snap my fingers together. I placed my arm in front of my head (my physical arm was behind my head) and easily snapped my fingers together - felt them, heard the snap clearly and as real as anything, I have a complete memory of the sensation and it was real.

I had two new thoughts during this time - one was very exciting, it was that I was really and truly succeeding in training myself to be able to separate limbs more or less on demand (under conducive circumstances, of course). I had made a decision to try this and just went and did it. That was really new, and I don't know that  I'll be able to do it tomorrow or the next day, but the sense of "Wow, I am learning this" was very palpably there.

The second thought was less exciting - simply the realization that I can indeed hear as well as I do when physical. I often don't have a sense of hearing, so this was neat.

Oh - there was a third thing. After snapping my fingers, I knew that nonphysical existence was real. I had the distinct experience of being in a place where I knew I was indeed nonphysical (in part.) I asked my self, "Do I really truly know this?" and answered myself with a resounding YES.

Now, sitting here at the computer I don't have that knowledge - but I do have the memory of being in a place where I had the knowledge. Sort of like the knowledge was available to me there but not here.

(Oh one more thing  - When I opened my eyes and was blown away again that my right arm was lying behind my head - I tried to snap my physical fingers. They were too dry, I had to try a few times before I could get it. I wanted to compare the physical snap with the etheric snap. Sure enough, once I got my physical fingers to snap, the feeling was the same - but the sound was behind my head where it should be. Not in front of my head where my etheric arm had been.)

Very neat, memorable experience. Reassuring, and holding promise.
