But as he taught and wrote about the phenomenon of out-of-body experiences, or OBEs, he met with resistance. People are too entrenched in their beliefs. So you do what you can do. Get the information out and try to make it understandable, because some of this information is so beyond people that you have to spoon-feed it.
When William Buhlman was a sophomore at the University of Maryland, a childhood buddy told him about having a spontaneous out-of-body experience, during which he woke from sleep and suddenly found himself floating above his bed, looking down at his dormant body below. It was the early s and there were few books on the subject. The book also suggested that you had to try this for at least 30 days to have any chance of actually separating your consciousness — what some might call the mind, but as distinct from the brain — from the physical body.
In retrospect, this is important because you end up focusing your consciousness away from your body just as your body is drifting into the altered state we call sleep. Nothing dramatic happened for the first three weeks and he was about to give up, but on the twenty-fifth day he had a strange dream that he was sitting at a round table with several people.
At that moment in the dream I began to feel extremely dizzy, and a strange numbness, like from Novocain, began to spread throughout my body. Unable to keep my head up in the dream, I passed out, hitting my head on the table. Instantly I was awake, fully conscious, lying on my side in a small single bed facing the wall. I thought, Oh my God, I did it! I started looking around and I was aware that I could see beyond the walls of the room.
What Buhlman saw next was even more astonishing than the sight of his own slumbering body: the figure of a man with dark hair and a beard in a purple robe who seemed to be observing him.
That strange feeling of numbness and tingling faded as I opened my eyes. It was brief but life-changing because it changed my entire outlook on reality. In the forty-five or so years since that first experience, Buhlman developed what some might view as an anomaly into a highly nuanced skill. Coming home from classes around midday, he would lie down, start his target techniques and get results.
And they were just mind-blowing. I was walking through walls. Searching for more advanced books on the subject, Buhlman came across the work of Paul Twitchell, a freelance journalist and seeker from Kentucky who in had founded an anomalous American spiritual sect he called Eckankar. Beyond that, things got a bit hazy. Eckankar was the very definition of a syncretic religion, combining aspects of Sufi and Christian love teachings with beliefs and terminology based on a Sikh tradition known as Sant Mat and its practice of Surat Shabda Yoga.
I never achieved the highest goal of Eckankar, to be instructed while in the dream state by the Living Eck Master — originally Twitchell himself and by my time an unassuming gent named Harold Klemp. Buhlman became involved in Eckankar earlier than I did and even led his own Satang, or spiritual group, enjoying the camaraderie because they were the only people he knew with whom he could talk about out-of-body experiences or astral projection without being thought of as a freak. I confessed to Buhlman that not only had I never succeeded in meeting the Living Eck Master in my dreams neither did he , but also that the first time I had an out-of-body experience was when I smoked DMT Dimethayltryptamine at the age of One minute I was sitting in my car with my friend Randy, puffing on a cheap corn-cob pipe stuffed with parsley, and in the next instant I was outside the car looking in through the windshield at Randy and me.
Some 25 years later, while researching a book on spiritual experience, I had several more brief OBEs when I shared ayahuasca with a Brazilian sect called Santo Daime. Curiously, DMT is believed to be an active ingredient in ayahuasca. It took me two years at least before I started to break out of our mold. After a time, I would be out of body for half an hour. How long you meditate means nothing. Then you start to internally change your self-concept.
Suddenly you know things. You feel you are exteriorizing. In , Buhlman was diagnosed with inoperable stage 4 cancer of the tonsil that spread to his lymph nodes. My lucid dreams and out-of-body experiences provided mind-bending visions that stunned me to the core.
She led him through a vision of the afterlife that he wrote about in that book in fictionalized form. Density and vibration go hand-in-hand and allow us to move inward so that we can begin to experience these other dimensional realities. Heaven is here. Everything is here now. That was the beauty of the ancient yogis; they began to teach people how to go inward.
But people feel the need to attach themselves to an established philosophy, and we forget that consciousness pre-existed all the religions on this planet. Religions come and go. The worship of Athena was a huge religion for a thousand years.
Realizing that his consciousness had separated from his physical body was, in itself, enormously exciting at first. But as time went on and he experimented further, Buhlman started to go deeper and deeper. I looked down and began to see that my arms and legs were dissolving. I started to question whether everything I learned from childhood is a lie. And then you have to integrate that, and learn how to fit in and play the game of being human.
But what do they mean by this? Startling but compelling evidence has been compiled over the past half-century, especially by Dr. According to most channeled accounts of the afterlife, spirit beings can take on any form they choose, and often appear as human to put the rest of us at ease.
He names St. They were trying to make sense of what the leader communicated, and then it ends up being distorted, generation after generation, until you end up with something like Catholicism, which is completely fear-based. Yet for all his distrust of institutional belief systems, Buhlman does find a lot to like about some of the practices of Tibetan Buddhism, particularly the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the extraordinary guide to making the transition from death to the afterlife and back through rebirth.
The text sounds somewhat obscure today, and although Buhlman finds its basic premise absolutely essential, he also thinks the tradition of chanting the lengthy text for 49 days after death is unrealistic. I appreciate some of the things in Buddhism in general. I love the Eightfold Path, but you have to be discerning. The eternally compelling question of what happens at — and after — death has become more important for Buhlman than simply the ability to explore other dimensions of consciousness.
He accepts the fact that consciousness can exist separately from the brain — still a point of argument for most materialist scientists and atheists like Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins.
Because our consciousness will continue after our body dies, we need to know how to navigate nonphysical consciousness without the equivalent of a GPS. Given the aging population of baby boomers, this would appear to be a valuable line of research. Indeed, at least two experienced lamas I spoke with agreed that the number was almost certainly a convention designed to limit the period of mourning. But Buhlman goes further, focusing on preparing for the transition to the nonphysical state that we will all have to make.
The pure spiritual essence of our consciousness appraises our development. Our every thought, word, and deed are known. Our life is an open book where every secret, every desire is clear and present. The art of forgiveness is often the practice of self-forgiveness. Monroe, who popularized the terms out-of-body experience and OBE.
Monroe was a psychospiritual explorer of the first rank who documented his own extraordinary experiences in three books written between and His accounts included prolonged communications in the astral plane with nonphysical beings who helped him overcome his initial fears and to develop his skills as a psychonaut. Having worked in the radio business, he developed high-tech gear that allowed students in separate units furnished with a bed, headphones, and speakers to listen to music combined with binaural beats.
By sending Hz in one ear and Hz in another, the mind perceives only the difference between the waves—4 Hz, the frequency at which the brain resonates during deep sleep, also known as the Delta state.
Entraining to this frequency tends to make the mind more receptive to states of deep concentration, and hopefully to precipitating an OBE.
As we move inward, nonphysical reality becomes increasingly more thought-responsive. To be a teacher you have to experience things yourself. People sometimes have scary experiences. That was his way of confronting his own fears. In history, the inner explorers of consciousness went through their own trials experiencing the manifestations of their own fears.
All my fear dissipates as I realize that this ugly creature is powerless to harm me. An intense feeling of empowerment and joy explodes through me; I feel completely free from my fear and limits. Become your own guinea pig. Find a method of inner exploration of consciousness that works for you, whether it be raja yoga or ritualized magic. It takes determination, work, focus, and a goal.

Below is the start of my chapter 9 , and the PDF links are at the end of this excerpt. I hover up, vibrating, and fly again. It strikes me that in experiences like this there can be no doubt that we are more than just a physical body. Imagine consciousness as a rainbow-coloured expanse of silk. Why take up scissors and slice the different colours into separate ribbons? Snip, snip. This orange is a waking vision.

An out-of-body experience OBE or sometimes OOBE is a phenomenon in which a person perceives the world from a location outside their physical body. The term out-of-body experience was introduced in by G. Tyrrell in his book Apparitions ,  and was adopted by researchers such as Celia Green ,  and Robert Monroe ,  as an alternative to belief-centric labels such as " astral projection " or "spirit walking". OBEs can be induced by traumatic brain injuries , sensory deprivation , near-death experiences , dissociative and psychedelic drugs , dehydration , sleep disorders , dreaming , and electrical stimulation of the brain,  among other causes. It can also be deliberately induced by some. Psychologists and neuroscientists regard OBEs as dissociative experiences arising from different psychological and neurological factors.
