Kind of an awkward question but I think its something many likely have dealt with during their OBE attempts especially when waking up after a nights sleep and trying a method but if you wake up and could benefit from going to the bathroom but want to use the opportunity to try to attempt a technique to go into 'mind awake body asleep' to project from, could you still actually 'get out' of your physical body whilst still needing to go to the bathroom and find when 'out and about' you are still just as capable? I would assume whilst 'out' the feeling to go to the bathroom would not be a factor anymore and would appear once back in the body. I also should add that I do not mean when you are absolutley bursting to urinate, obviously the sensible thing would be a bathroom visit but I am referring to the point where you could indeed benefit from it but its not too much of a strain for the time being.

Excuse me if I am grossing anyone out talking about levels of refraining from calls of nature but I am trying to see if its distration and disruption can be overridden so to speak.

Physical distress will wake up the physical body, therefore not a good idea to hold it. After you use the bathroom, you attempt while falling asleep to do some visualization motion technique which will be a lot more effective if your physical body is at ease.

There is a "method" (and I use that term loosely lol) where you drink a really big glass of water right before bed so that in the middle of the night you get up to go to the bathroom.  That gives you time to do a technique while going back to bed.  Smiley

I have at times been able to keep my NP focus while also going to the bathroom. It's a matter of grounding your semi-wake self a bit more strongly and taking care of business without really paying attention to details. You've gone to the toilet a million times so you really don't need to fully wake for it.

Exactly!

*AND* you can use that as training for yourself while you're non-physical.
The act of STAYING within a non-physical experience isn't much different than what you're describing above.

I'm not sure I understand you guys. Are you saying you can be in OBE and your physical body can go to the bathroom on its own?

Yes. The NP experience does not and is not always an either/or thing. It is possible to maintain focus in both realities at once.
