You have two bodies. An earthbound body and an astral body. These two normally stay together but it is possible to consciously separate your astral body from your earthbound body. This is called an out of body experience
. Abbreviated as OBE
You can use lucid dreaming as a stepping stone to an out of body experience.
When you try to leave your body there are several signs that you are succeeding.
- you hear a humming or a high-pitched noice
- you feel you are being pulled
- you feel yourself twirl around
- you feel yourself travelling with a very high speed (even feeling the wind in your hair)
Sometimes it is quite scary and you don't succeed because you are too frightened. But sometimes you really end up in the most amazing worlds.
The moment I leave my body I hear a noise that is best described as "snok". I then have the feeling I'm suddenly cut loose of something.
I used to practice lucid dreaming quite intensely and in that time I often found myself half awake with the feeling of spinning around my axis really fast. Or sometimes I felt myself speeding through a tunnel.
I have several astral projection methods in a dream. (It sounds like I do this daily but in fact I rarely have an OOBE consciously.)
One is the fly-as-high-as-you-can-method. You try to fly really high and in the meantime say to yourself: "higher, up, out of my body".
Sometimes you really feel yourself being pulled out of your body.
Another method is to imagine that you are under water and feel yourself floating to the surface.
This makes it easier to feel yourself being pulled upwards.
