Author and speaker William Buhlman returned to share the latest observations and developments in out-of-body experience (OBE) research. During these experiences a person moves into an astral body realm which is actually another dimension of existence, he explained. This type of 'travel' can have a number of benefits. For Buhlman, it gave him verification that consciousness survives outside of the body, and during such states a person can receive healing energies.
Many alien abduction reports may actually be misperceived OBEs, he said, noting that when a person leaves their body, they attract attention from a variety of beings that wish to communicate. The notion of form is quite fluid in this realm-- Buhlman said he often perceives of himself as a ball or teardrop of energy.
The key to achieving an OBE is persevering with a selected technique for a period of at least 30 days and to practice it on a couch rather than a bed, he noted. Incan shamansmay have had to prove their OBE skills by identifying the Nazca Lines animals (which can only be seen from an aerial perspective), he added.
UK's Use of Psychics
