Out of body experiences (OBEs or OOBEs) involve the vivid sensation of moving outside your physical body and sometimes traveling far beyond it. OBEs are most likely to occur when you are asleep, meditating or practicing wake-induced lucid dream exercises. Indeed, many dream explorers agree that out-of-body phenomena are extensions of the lucid dream experience. Around 1 in 10 people have experienced an OBE at some time in their lives - and some people have them frequently. There are many ways to induce an OBE and we'll look at a practical technique for doing so at the end of this article. The Link Between OBEs and Lucid Dreams Our scientific understanding of the OBE strongly suggests that it is a type of lucid dream. An OBE/WILD begins when you're lying down, ideally having recently woken from a sleep. This can give you the unusual sensation of being "stuck" in your physical body in bed, with the need to free yourself. For step-by-step instructions, see my WILD tutorial. Astral Projection

According to Jeremy Naydler, author of Temple of the Cosmos: The Ancient Egyptian Experience of the Sacred, they believed in three bodies: Shat (the corpse body), Ka (the living physical body) and Ba (the soul). Ba was often represented in hieroglyphics as a human-headed bird floating above the sleeping body or corpse. Naydler notes that “…the Ba is the person but in another form. The Ba could be defined as an individual in an out-of-body state.” Was the Ba actually the lucid dreaming consciousness?
