I have always believed that there was some sort of connection between OBEs and  electromagnetic energy.  This is due to several reasons.  The static-like rushing sounds that occur at separation seem to sound exactly like electricity, and electromagnetic energy has been pr oven to interact with the universe at an intrinsic level.  Also, the pulling feeling at separation and upon returning (the snap back effect) all feel like magnetic forces at play.

I have actually had the chance to test my theory! I have to tell you a little bit about my career in order to explain how.

I am in the Navy, and serve on board a ship.  Ship's have a metal hull which over time accumulates a magnetic signature from all the stored up energy that the metal picks up.  If left as is, this electromagnetic signature would allow enemy nations to easily detect and classify a warship. And even worse, the signature could set off a magnetic mine if the ship sailed over one.

In order to rectify this problem we need to periodically erase the magnetic traces in the hull.  It's a long drawn out process where the ship is wrapped in large electric cables fore to aft, and then electricity is passed through the cables in timed bursts.  At first the bursts are stronger and last longer, and at the end the bursts are weaker and shorter in duration. Essentially this turns the entire ship into a large electromagnet. (They even tell us to not have credit cards etc within a few feet of the outside of the hull or they will be erased!) We stay inside all the time this happens, over a period of a few days.

While off watch the first night, I decided to try an experiment.  I tried to have an OBE.  Specifically I tried to Astrally Project.  I was not only successful with minimal effort on my part, but it was also the most vivid OBE I have had to this day!

Astral Projection can sometimes be confused with a dream, because of dreamlike qualities, but this time it was vivid. Try imagining that you can see sound and hear color.  That's really the only way I can describe it.  Everything emanated with a colorful glow.  Inanimate objects had bright auras.  The colors affected you inside, and you could see vibrations all around,  like music was all around and and even in the 'sky'.

I also was able to contact my Father who passed away.  I still remember vividly how he looked.  He took on the appearance of a much younger man, about 30 years old (He was 53 when he passed away), and in his eyes could see energy sparkling about.  I was able to get out one sentence before I realized that I was really there and pulled back.  I remember yelling "No! I don't want to go back yet!" and then I awoke in my bunk on the ship.

That experience has led me to conclude that electromagnetic energy acts as a catalyst for inducing Astral Projection, and help to maintain conscious clarity during the experience.   Even though I have projected many times since then and had some experiences which lasted longer, I have not been able to have as vivid an experience as that one.

this sounds logical since i heard that scientists were able to induce OBEs by using electromagnetic fields on a specific part of the brain. this needs definately more research. you say that this procedure is done regularly. could you try it again and tell if this happens again?

Hahaha Bermuda 58? (Wasn't even born then!) I'm only 30 yrs old.  I'm female... and Canadian  tongue

Funny you should mention Bermuda though - We have sailed through there many times (Eastern Seaboard NATO tours) and I have tried the same sorts of things when I was in my bunk while in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle.

Turns out the Bermuda Triangle ISN'T helpful.... in fact, absolutely nothing happened, no effects on my hand held compass and obviously GPS was not affected. Bummer... I was actually hoping for something mysterious.

Don't worry, deperming ships is common knowledge.

Very interesting!

I would be very interested to know the frequency and duty cycle of the pulses during the degaussing procedure, if it's not classified.

I have often thought about building a large coil that I could lie inside of and induce a strong magnetic field at the Delta frequencies of 2-3 cycles per second, which is the frequency of our brain waves while we sleep. Perhaps an OBE such as yours could be reproduced.

Like jalef requested, if you could reproduce the experience again, please keep us informed!

I wonder how this could be safely done ... I mean an at-home experiment. I imagine a cot or pad and a length of insulated cable coiled around it (coiled high enough to lay in the center of), but how would you induce the right magnetic field? What would you need to safely power it and send pulses?

A suitable coil form could be made from several sources. Probably the simplest would be a piece of plastic sewer pipe 3' in diameter. Or for those people that are claustrophobic, a frame made out of wood could work, and actually would make a better form than plastic sewer pipe.

The coil could be wound with any suitable conductor so long as the gage could handle the current. I would probably use 3/8" copper tubing. An arbitrary function generator or pulse generator could be purchased off of ebay fairly reasonable and would provide the clock source for the device. Some circuitry would be needed to amplify the signal. I would think a power source limited to about 1000 watts would be a good place to start. Since I'm an electrical engineer I would make my own power amplifier but an old stereo amplifier could be used as well, with a little work.

There you go, a homemade Delta wave generator!  cheesy

BTW, at this low of a frequency, the device would be so inefficient that there would be no real concern of an EMR hazard, but I would still measure the radiation to make sure it fell within reasonable guidelines.

I'm a little wary of 1000 watts ... how would this thing affect stuff around it, such as computers, electronics, credit cards, etc.? You'd probably have to have someplace to put it where it won't ruin everybody's TV reception ...

If we lived in the 50s, somebody would already be in their backyard putting stuff together (making sure to implement some shiny aluminum somewhere) ... it seems like the 50s were big on engineering. I wish I understood what you said, jub jub ... then I could start tinkering with an old stereo amp ... Wink

At the low delta frequencies, a coil would have to be huge in terms of inductance in order to radiate energy at those low frequencies. A coil that size would be impractical to build. So, with a small coil like I described, most of the energy would be wasted as heat and not radiated.

What stirred my interest though is how the Navy degausses ships. I'm sure there is a fair amount of electromagnetic radiation being produced. I was curious as to what frequencies and or pulse widths they use and if there could be any correlation with the brain waves. Perhaps some sub-harmonic which falls in the same frequency range as the delta wave!

I decided to google the subject and found this. Sorry it's off topic but interesting nonetheless!

Interesting article, jub jub.

This also made me think about the earth's magnetic field and the polar shift. Here's an article I wrote a while ago about it:

Quote
The pole was located for the first time in 1831 by James Ross in the arctic (during which his ship was stuck in the ice for four years). No one returned until 1904 when Roald Amundsen found the pole again and also that it had moved at least 50 km since Ross's time. The pole kept moving throughout the 20th century, going north at an average speed of 10 km per year, but accelerating to 40 km per year. So far during the last century it has moved 1100 km. At this rate, it will reach Siberia in about 50 years. Compass needles in Africa are drifting about 1 degree per decade. Globally, the magnetic field has weakened 10 percent since the 19th century.

This leads to the issue of complete pole reversals.

According to the magnetism of ancient rocks, pole reversals are unpredictable. Their intervals of occurrence average about 700,000 years between them. The last reversal happened 780,000 years ago. There have been over 400 reversals in the last 300 million years. When the poles reverse, however, the magnetic field does not vanish. The magnetic lines of force will become more twisted and tangled, and magnetic poles might pop up in unusual places, but the field will still protect the earth from solar radiation.

Is the current activity unusual? No. The magnetic field is increasing or decreasing all the time. Even if the present trend continues, the poles will not be mid-way through a complete reversal (during which time the magnetic field will be reduced 10% - 25%) for about 1,500 years (with a possibility ranging between 8,000 and 1,000 years). Many researchers believe that the poles will not reverse at all, but re-stabilize (as it has many times in the past).

What about the strength of the magnetic field? Is it growing weaker? Yes. But also consider this: the present-day magnetic field is much stronger than normal (8 × 1022 amps × m2), which is twice the million-year average.


I wonder if the earth's field does a degaussing ... I remember when I was researching for this article a diagram showing how the magnetic field could theoretically go chaotic for a short period of time - it reminded me of degaussing when I saw it.

I don't know about degaussing...perhaps a good delousing is in order! :mrgreen:

Synergy, sorry to derail your post.

I really would like to know more about the degaussing procedure though if and when you get a chance. Not so much for the technical aspect of it, but how it might influence astral projection.

I see from your e-book that you've been at this for quite some time!

I will check into what power they using the cables but if memory serves, 440V 60Hz 3 Ph rings a bell..... not sure if they use an SFC to change the frequency or not.  

The pulses start out at their longest periods... maybe 4 mins or so for a burst and then the same period at rest.  Over the few days, the pulses get shorter and shorter until they are only 15 seconds or so long each.

I'll try to find out the numbers for sure though...

I've should have figured that. The power required to degauss a ship would have to be tremendous and would require either commercial power or on ship generators with a healthy output to do the job.

Thanks for checking.

Hallo Synergy
 cool
I remember you from Astral Society. Good to see you posting again on a website.
EM energy must certainly affect OBEs. Robert Monroe and other researchers mentioned that they have been trapped inside electrically charged Faraday cages. I personally have gotten 'hung up' on telephone lines on at least one or two occasions.
Of the four known scientific forces- EM, gravity, strong nuclear force and weak nuclear force, probably only gravity has no strong affect on the OOB state. Also of note is both EVP and ITC (instrumental transcommunication) relie on EM waves to detect and record discarnate 'voices'.

I have done extensive research on the effect of high tension power lines on my energy body in successive OBEs from 1998 to 2001. Isolated the key laws and explained my experiences with the help of a neglected theory of electrodynamics. It's a very interesting topic that had actually drawn me into OBE.

I use to get sleep paralysis lying on deck of a Navy tugboat at Long Beach Naval shipyard in California during lunch periods.  This is before I knew anything about OBE. In the two years I was aboard we never underwent a degaussing so we could have had a high degree of magnetism over the hull.  Sleep paralysis is not the type thing people talk about in general social setting so perhaps more sailors do experience it.  I never gave too much thought to it as I discovered that by closing my eyes (if in fact the eyes are really open during Paralysis) it would cease and I would wake normally right away.  I have never had an OBE or Astral Projection until I moved into my current home in Florida.  I have had several paranormal researchers at my home and there Tri Field EMF meters are all Very High in reading.  The people that came to my home seem to believe EM causes sleep paralysis and OBE due to the large amount of investigations they do where clients report sleep paralysis and the EM field reading are extriemely high.  My personal belief is that spirits can manipulate the EM fields in an attempt to communicate.  I know a lot of people believe the so called ORBS are just dust but I have video where one actually interacts with me for 45 seconds in my back yard as I view it in infrared.  I think I read somewhere in a post recently that there are actually area of the brain that contain a type crystalline substance that EM can effect.  There is probably someone here who knows more on this area and can shed more insight.

I would love to post it but it is on Sony Camcorder magnetic tape.  I guess I will have to take it to have it copied to disk and formatted to a mode that can be downloaded to a hosting site.  I have been searching over the internet for a couple years of ORB video and have never seen anything like it.  The ORB I have is shaped like a soda can, bright on each end and transparent in the middle and actually changes form and reacts to my dog coming near it.  It is also accompanied with EVP.  If anyone knows how I can download this please E-Mail me.  The video have just been collecting dust since 2004.  After capturing this video I have not tried since as I really began to believe I was making contact with something I did not understand.
