Hi Everyone!

Okay, so it's been a bit of a dry spell for me.  Optimally, I'd like to AP/OBE at will, during active periods it's effortless but for the past while, it's been difficult to even reach that point, and then when I do manage, it's brief, and I get pulled back as if I hit an undertow or undercurrent in an ocean. 

When I get pulled back into my body, it's for no discernible physical cause, I may wake up or fall into a black-abyss like slumber.  And it's different feeling from falling back, which is more of a rush, rollercoaster feeling, with intensity causing a distinct slam(or subtle slip in/out, or click). 


Anyone tips, suggestions, etc?

I'm tired of this hostile environment, and aggressive, dogmatic moderation.  I'm taking my 40+years of OBE experience to a forum, where those who can and do project at will can further explore without the imposed limitations spurred from ignorance. Peace.

I've been pulled back too.  A few times, very mysteriously.  I'm on my way somewhere and then suddenly an unseen force will tow me backwards until I pop back into the physical.  I can't say I've completely figured it out, but I have noticed some patterns.

Do you have a slight (maybe subconscious) doubt or fear that your intention is too 'big'  or unattainable for you?  If so, do some inner work on that before you project in order to gain confidence.  The slightest doubt that I can achieve something will kill my experience every time.

Also, my projections sometimes end quickly if I rush off too quickly or excitedly (which causes me to be a little unfocused) so I need to proceed calmly and methodically with focus for about 20 seconds to really ground myself in the scene.  After that I can be a little more emotional and 'quick' about things if I want, without negative effects.

As for not being able to 'get out' - several failures in a row can cause a viscous 'doubt' cycle.  The more you fail the more you doubt yourself, and the more you doubt yourself the more you fail. If that's the problem, just recognizing it is enough to break it's hold over you.

It could be that your mind is getting bored with your exit routine (or your guides want your knowledge to evolve.)  Be very intuitive and let your inner self guide you to new creative visuals and sensations.  I've experienced dry spells before where this was the problem. 

Underlying fears can keep you from exiting too.  Our subconscious is very creative at blocking our efforts to project.  Especially when we've had one negative experience - our subconscious does not want a repeat performance.

These are all the things I can think of that have affected me at one point or another.  Hopefully something is helpful.   smiley

Great suggestions.  I can really relate to what you are saying, and very clear.  If I may, how do you do inner work to gain confidence?
Thanks Soarin12!

For me, inner work means connecting in my spirit to God which is perfect love.  All fears and doubts fall away when I do this and I am left experiencing my true self which is peace, love and joyful confidence.

I also affirm to myself beliefs I hold, such as - All good things (things that help us to grow) are meant to be experienced and our only limits are the ones we put on ourselves.

Any affirmations or truths you hold that help bring you to that unshakable place of inner peace should be repeated.  I use bible scriptures such as - "All things are possible for those who believe."  and "Perfect love casts out all fear."  The important thing is that they should be very meaningful to you personally - impact you at that your deepest level - the level where you know that this is your truth and no one can take it away from you.

Little doubts and fears try to chip away at our 'truth' every day but a little daily inner work will bring us back to that place of confidence.

Oh, okay, never thought walking that route to do inner work.  I can see how it would be effective though.  Especially with what you say in regards to love.

Very good advice.  I'm going to have to contemplate on what you said for a bit.  Thank you!

I am impressed, soarin12 said it well.    I think we can all learn from that.
