Otherwise known as astral projection, but not to be mistaken with lucid dreaming. Here's a book on it in pdf format in case anyone's interested.

I just read the first half and am going to give it a go this minute. Seems like as good a way as any of wasting my time. Plus it involves lying very still and drifting in and out of consciousness. Bonus! i'll let you whores know if anything of note happens...

anyone had any interesting experiences with this?

I once had a bout of hypnotherapy to make me work harder. It's a very strange and enjoyable experience, but was so relaxing, it only encouraged further laziness.

I wouldn't go doing that while your driving, useless you want to hover out of your car and miss the traffic jams and laughing at the poor saps below as you dirft above them.

Any result? Have you managed to get a peek inside the ladies changing rooms?

I've had a  few Out of body experiences or OBE's. Always these happen as a result of my sleep paralysis and I use it as a way of getting out of the parylitic state. Whilst parlysed (and I have to pretty calm to pull iit off) I just imagine myself twisting out of my body. It's a very interesting experience, but very hard to maintain for long before I either start lucid dreaming, waking up or ending up paralysed again.

The trouble is there is so much rubbish talked about astral nonsense and paranormal stuff I give up trying to research it. For every one sane scientific explanation on the net there are 100 crazy ones.

Don't doctors winch you up out of the bed to give the impression of floating?

Ha ha ha ha, you said "pull it off."

I had the kind of dreams last night that I would choose to have every night!

They were rude!

But all day I've been feeling really depressed, which really isn't me.

I guess it's hormones or something.

Anyway, this is almost entirely unrelated to this thread.

Would erotic dreams be a usual aim of this kind of venture?

But it made me giggle a bit.

No experience of OBE's but I've had the occaisonal occaison when I've jumped out of my skin (no pun intended) because for a split second I had thought I was falling.

Actually I have had an out of body experience. It wasn't very pleasant though.

During my first ever whitey (in the woods) I saw myself from above. I think it was god's way of telling me to be ashamed of myself.

mmm, my first experiment was very unsuccessful. I just fell asleep! But i think the 'mind loosening exercises' i did before i accidentaly nodded off really helped release tension because i had one of the best night's kip i've had in ages. I shall resume my experiment tonight though. wish me luck!

Is there anything we could set up to help you prove it?  A message on one of our walls for example?

What kind of message? "Get the fuck away from my walls you disembodied bastard?"

I think i'll need to get the basics down before i attempt a fancy stunt like that...

Well strangely enough, 9,  the chap living two doors down from me has your name engraved on his door. Will that be any use to your experiment?

I'll try tonight and have one intentionally. Never tried before, but recently I've found as I drift of too sleep that I'm able to almost see my bedroom even though my eyes are closed. I'll let you know well it failed to work.
