Tonight's guest Albert Taylor is no stranger to the world of out-of-body experiences (OBE). To the average person though, this kind of travel seems out of reach. But according to the slender tome, Have an Out-Of-Body Experience in 30 Days(1), the belief that only mystical and spiritually advanced people can have OBE's, is not accurate. In fact, writes authors Harary and Weintraub, "nothing could be further from the truth. Virtually anyone can have an OBE."
Accordingly, they have a designed a four week "free flight program," that first tunes you into your five senses and the ability to achieve "alert relaxation." Jumping ahead to Day 8's exercise "Rising Above It," one begins to learn how to imagine the mind and body in two separate places. The use of imagination and visualization is key to their training: "Imagine floating above yourself for several minutes without straining...imagine your disembodied face looking back at your physical face."
The next day's exercise suggests focusing your attention on a specific location in the room: "Now imagine that you're a point of consciousness...and you're looking back at your body from this new and more remote perspective." All of this hard work has paid off by Day 24, when you receive instruction for "Orgasmic Flights," which can be done with a partner or alone.
