Rogo, D Scott - Leaving the Body – Sinking, floating and humming or buzzing from OBEs



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

David Scott Rogo - Leaving the Body: A Complete Guide to Astral Projection

Your first clue will be when you experience odd sinking and/or floating sensations as you remain relaxed. A few people suddenly find themselves just spontaneously out-of-body, but most go through a stage where they actually feel the release of consciousness.

 Ln my own case, for instance, I always feel as though I am sinking right through my bed or couch when I begin to have un OBE. At the same time my head begins buzzing wildly - almost as though I were standing in the middle of a busy pinball arcade.

Many people who have had spontaneous OBEs while simply resting have remarked on these same symptoms. When you begin to feel these sensations - and they can be dramatic - try to intensify them. Do not move under any condition. This will disrupt the OBE, and by this time you will probably be cataleptic anyway.

Will yourself to leave the body. You might get a fright at first when these symptoms manifest, especially if you find yourself unable to move. This type of pre-OBE catalepsy is actually a good sign. Don't fight against it. lf it seems that you just can’t get out of body but find yourself still paralyzed, don't be too concerned. To break the catalepsy, merely focus all your attention on one of your fingers and then try to move it. The finger will invariably move, and this minor breach will overcome the catalepsy.
