I attempted having an OBE last night using the method of knightlight's writing a "C" on your right index finger. And then you check on the C every time you wake up. Unfortunately i was awake most of the time. I had problems sleeping, was quite restless. I did keep looking at the C though. But eventually i fell asleep, and dreamt an OBE Smiley Well at that time to me i thought it was real. Here's a short paragraph on what happened.
I woke up, looked at my index finger, and the "C" wasn't there. Then i felt abit strange and my body slided down towards the floor. To validate to myself that i am having an OBE, i thought to myself, I must look at my physical body and see if its there!... I looked, and it was there! it was quite scary. Specially when i tell you this. When i went close to it, my left hand was moving in a slapping motion and head was shaking abit too. I moved back, and there was no movement at all. So i said to hell with it, i am not going to waste this moment, i shall go and explore. And at this time i thought to myself too, I am having an OBE, i will have something to talk about on the astral pulse forums Smiley I floated to my living room... I don't remember exactly what happened here. I tried to fly or so to say float up (i don't know what was going on!). So i tried to do it normally just by thought, nothing! So then i put my hands down to my sides, and then lifted it up slowly right towards the top of my head, and i floated a bit. And did the reverse to come back down. Then i came to a point where i was in front of my mum. And she was able to see my astral self in front of her and my physical body lying down. At this point i thought to myself, this cant be right! She cannot see me astrally! She cannot see two me's! And then i think someone else of my family too saw me. My dad, and i don't recall who else. And then i woke up, in bed, with the C on the finger Smiley It was quite disappointing yet quite a remarkable experience. Makes you wonder how cunning ones mind can be.

Anyone had the same experience? Might want to share? Or any comments at all.

Regards,
projektr

It sounds more like you had an OBE, and then slipped into a dream to me. Sounds like it was a cool experience.

Yeah theres really no such thing as "dreaming" an OBE. You are either out of your body and aware of it or you arent aware at all.

The reason for this is dreaming and astral projection takes place in the basically the same area, PF2. Some people project to PF3, but for most people its their own private area of consciousness, PF2.

Read this topic - http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17413

The problem you had, which is common for us beginners, is losing awareness. This can lead to slipping into dreams, like mactombs said. The only way to improve this is with practice and the use of a dream journal can help as well. Just write down your dreams on a pad of paper every morning directly after you wake up. This leads to much greater memory and awareness when your in the obe "state".

GL!

Actualy that is totally possible.  I had such experience of dreaming about OBE's many many times.  I just think I obe but end up waking up in my dream.  The dreamnt OBE doesn't feel like an OBE, but when you're dreaming you do think it's a real OBE (hard to explain).  To sum it up, it's just a dream in a dream thing, but you think you OBE, even though you have no control at all.

Anyways, your experience sounds like a real obe slipped into a drea as said above.
