Out-of-body experience
Artist's depiction of the separation stage of an out-of-body experience, which often precedes free movement An out-of-body experience (OBE or sometimes OOBE) is an experience that typically involves a sensation of floating outside one's body and, in some cases, perceiving one's physical body from a place outside one's body (autoscopy). The term out-of-body experience was introduced in 1943 by George N. M. Tyrrell in his book Apparitions,[1] and was adopted by researchers such as Celia Green[2] and Robert Monroe[3] as an alternative to belief-centric labels such as "astral projection", "soul travel", or "spirit walking". OBEs can be induced by brain traumas, sensory deprivation, near-death experiences, dissociative and psychedelic drugs, dehydration, sleep, and electrical stimulation of the brain,[4] among others. Spontaneous[edit] During/near sleep[edit] Near-death experiences[edit] Another form of spontaneous OBE is the near-death experience (NDE). Induced[edit] Mental induction[edit]

Understanding the Merkabah and Inter-Dimensional Travel June 24, 2014 Free Spirit, Guest Waking Times The Merkabah Vehicle is the means for travelling to higher dimensional planes and for ascending the physical body out of the 3rd dimension. Our Merkabah Vehicle is in essence our own inter-dimensional star-craft – similar to the structure in the Contact movie, albeit far more complex. The degree to which we have assembled our Merkabah Vehicle, will determine how far we can progress through the Astral Planes and whether we are able to use the interstellar and intergalactic wormholes. As we awaken to our higher dimensional selves and engage in conscious astral travel, we begin to ‘build’ our Merkabah.

The Human Body in Symbolism - The Secret Teachings of All Ages Index Previous Next p. 73 THE oldest, the most profound, the most universal of all symbols is the human body. The Greeks, Persians, Egyptians, and Hindus considered a philosophical analysis of man's triune nature to be an indispensable part of ethical and religious training.
