I might of learnt another lesson with this one.
As always a bit of background information because I believe it’s important, so bear with me.
I find my job very stressful at times and I often look for ways to cope with it better. I found a quote by Dr Wayne Dyer which I found very useful a couple of weeks ago. It was his “I am” quote.
On Friday morning just gone, I was doing my morning meditation. His quote popped into my head and I stayed with that thought for a while. I let the thought develop in my mind and realised that I had been using the “I am” in my OOBE affirmations a couple of weeks ago that correlated with the actual out of body experiences I had had back then.
It made me wondered, if I was to sit down and say the affirmation “I am an out of body explorer” over and over ten, twenty or a hundred times what would happen.
I soon realised you must not force the affirmation. I found that if I tried to hard to believe it or to focus to heavily on it, I could feel myself resisting it.
Having trained as a hypnotherapist 17 years ago I knew I had to try and bypass my analytical and critical mind to plant the thought in my subconscious mind. By keeping my focus light I think I achieved this. I think the easiest way to plant a thought in your subconscious mind is to daydream a bit.
Just think of the affirmation and say it a few times and then forget about it and think of something else. When you think about the affirmation again do the same as before. I believe it’s this internal dialogue that has a strong influence in shaping our lives. Every now and again I remember to repeat the affirmation and that seems enough.
I put this theory to the test on Saturday. Through out the day I would say to myself “I am an out of body explorer” over and over again until my mind wandered. If I found I was getting fed up repeating the affirmation I would stop because the effectiveness of this method would diminish.
That night I went to bed just after midnight so it was technically Sunday morning. Anyway I lay in bed with my wife’s Fitbit on to see if it noted anything interesting. As I drifted off I had a dream that I was wearing some kind of mechanical kangaroo legs. I have no idea where that came from but just remember thinking that the further forward I leant the faster I would go.
I half woke up and realised I was at the point where I knew I could induce the vibrations. I kind of slumped or slid internally and I was hit by a wave of vibrations. I tried to separate but just found that I was flailing around, however I almost rolled out. I need to somehow get through the vibrations and separate more easily.
Unfortunately the vibrations subsided and I opened my eyes. I could just about make out that there were object floating in the room. I was not scared but wary and remembered that this has happened before.
What I learnt from this is to use “I am” little and often for the best results.
Unfortunately the Fitbit did not notice any changes in my heart rate or movements. I may invest in one of these new head bands that track your brainwaves. It would be interesting to see if it notices changes in brainwaves when the vibration occur.
Let me know what you think.
