    OBE Survey

    Greetings all.
    I am pleased to announce that the Informal OBE Survey has been completely updates. Thanx in part to those of you who have responded to the 4 OBE Exit polls and those people who have shared their OBE stories on this (and other) websites I can now present the final survey here.

    This report is a summary of 50,347 Out of Body Experiences. Most of these accounts were posted on various websites on the internet. The information from these accounts are organized in four sections.
    The first section (Part 2) is location. These are the superphysical places that were reported or described during the out of body experience (OBE).
    The second section (Part 3) is familiar physical or discarnate person(s) who were encountered or seen during the OBE.
    The third section (Part 4) is any unfamiliar persons or beings that were encountered or seen during an OBE.
    The fourth section (Part 5 through Part 7 and Miscellaneous Notes are the notes describing both the frequency and the type of various phenomena reported by people while they were out of body (OOB).
    This is an appropriate point to comment on the veracity of these OBE accounts. Certainly not all of the OBE (or NDE) reports are accurate. Some accounts of OBEs are undoubtedly faulty, a result of misperceptions or confusion or distorted senses. A few other reports are frauds and hoaxes (usually adolescents posting false reports on the internet to impress other adolescents). This caveat being noted I strongly believe that the vast majority of these OBE accounts are true and valid.

    Re: OBE Survey

    The headings under which those terms will probably help explain a couple of these-
    -a light being is a being that appears to be made of light. I have seen some of those.
    -an elemental is a term that is in the AD Pedia in alphabetical order, and other subthemes (like the mystical or energy section.)

    Re: OBE Survey

    Hi darron

    The crystal man was (according to the description given in the OBE account) a discarnate man entirely made of crystal.
    Old souls are beings who have existed for a very, very long time. I know that many people say that all souls are immortal so therefore (perhaps) All souls are Old Souls. Yet some people tend to make (an arbitrary??) distinction between some souls as Old Souls.
    Elementals (to my knowledge) are subdivided into either
    A) earth (gnomes), fire (salamanders), air (sylphs) and water elementals (undines) or
    B) thought elementals.
    Type A elementals are considered to be permanent entities. Thought elementals can be either permanent or temporary beings.
    Regards
    Grey

    Re: OBE Survey

    Hallo sleepingbeauty

    Astral alcohol is any type of alcoholic drink (beer, wine, vodka, etc..) that was reported to be consumed (or seen) by a person while out of body. Many people report visiting bars, restaurants and nightclubs during their OBEs. These places are apparently most common in belief system territories. At these places (astral) patrons consume alcohol.
    btw there have also been reports of astral drugs (but these reports are much less common.)

    Regards
    Grey

  9. Re: OBE Survey

    What intersts me is how many astral experiences where one was able to retrieve objective information about the real world during an astral projection, that proved to be correct after physically checking.

    I.e. your buddy in his appartment writes or draws something on a piece of paper and leaves it on the table.
    You fly there overnight and read it/see it, then you return to your body and write what you saw on a piece of paper.

    The next day you check the correspondence.

    Or two people astral project at the same time, meet in the astral, exchange some information, return to their bodies and write it down, then check physically the info the next day.

    This is the kind of statistics that I would like to see - the one proving that astral projection is not just a fantasy inside the brain.

    Re: OBE Survey

    It is impossible (or at least daunting) to try to weed out validations in the OBE accounts that are journalled here. In my personal case, I've had three validations that are not in my journal (which I started circa 2005)- and can think of maybe two or three ever since.
    If you want to read about validations in the forum, use the search tool on the right side upper hand corner and put in the word 'validation'. This will bring up some of the posts, at least.
    If you read around and learn to project yourself, you will find that most of the astral projections are to subjective environments, even if collective. So, even though some people are involved in real-time projections and more experimental pursuits (like the remote viewers do), astral projection as a discipline is a mixed bag of experiences, and frankly, I don't care if they are categorized as subjective.
