The Life Changing Benefits Reported from Out of Body Experiences
Based on my ten-year survey of over sixteen thousand people the reported benefits of out-of-body experiences extend far beyond the limits of our physical senses and our intellect. After an out-of-body experience many people report an inner awakening of their spiritual identity, a transformation of their self-concept and a dramatic elimination of their fear of death. They see themselves as more than matter – more aware and alive.
Large numbers of people report a dramatic expansion of inner wisdom based on personal spiritual experience. Many express a feeling of being connected to something greater than them selves, connected to the very source of life itself. Overwhelmingly they describe an increase in personal knowledge and a deep inner connection to spirit while others detail a powerful feeling of breaking through mental barrier of ignorance, fear, and limitation. A significant number report an expansion of their perception capabilities extending far beyond their physical limits – an overwhelming sense of knowing based on direct personal experience.
Many today remain unaware that out-of-body experiences are an essential element of every religion. When you strip away the countless man made beliefs and traditions that dominate the world you find that most modern religions are the direct result of inspired individuals that journeyed beyond the body and experienced a profound spiritual awakening. Religious texts from every culture are filled with bold out-of-body adventures within the realms of spirit. The Bible, the Koran and other religious texts are overflowing with statements such as, “I was in the spirit,” and “The spirit moved me”. For example, a corner stone experience within the Koran is Muhammad’s life changing, night journey. During this out-of-body adventure he reports vivid encounters with nonphysical beings and inspirational travels through what he called the seven heavens. When you explore this topic you recognize that the benefits of out-of-body experiences are rooted in every religion. For instance, many people today strongly feel that the entire book of Revelations is actually the vivid personal account of the writer’s profound out-of-body experiences. Read the first few lines of Revelations and you discover the intriguing statement, “I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day”. Examine this for yourself and you will see why so many believe that this intensely personal manuscript is a nonphysical experience beyond the body.
When I am asked, “Why out-of-body exploration?” my response is simple. I need to experience and discover the answers for myself. I find little comfort in beliefs, especially since they are the most abundant commodities available today. Every society and culture is overflowing with their manmade collection of beliefs and convictions. These beliefs change with time, evolving and decaying, while the truth of our spiritual existence remains the same, hidden under the ever-growing mountain of doctrines, dogmas, and assumptions. Perhaps the most important benefit received from out-of-body experiences is the recognition of our personal ability to discover the answers for ourselves.
I believe that the purpose of life is to explore and discover the truth of our existence or risk being a mental slave to unconfirmed ideas and falsehoods. For many the time has come to recognize our true potential and to explore beyond the physical façade and the prevailing beliefs of our culture. The time has come for us to experience the truth for ourselves.
We have this opportunity today, self initiated out-of-body experiences opens the door to an incredible new frontier of human potential and discovery. It allows us to explore beyond the narrow limits of our physical senses and discover firsthand the answers to the oldest mysteries of our existence.
According to research and studies conducted by many highly respected physicians; Dr. Raymond Moody, Dr. Melvin Morse, Dr. Ken Ring, Dr. Bruce Greyson and Dr. Stewart Twemlow, the transformative qualities of out-of-body experiences are limitless. Each year new studies point to additional psychological and physical benefits derived from out-of-body experiences. As I research this topic, I realized that the reported benefits are absolutely staggering.
As the number of reported out-of-body experiences continues to increase, the evidence is overwhelming that life-changing benefits are regularly obtained during out-of-body adventures.
Part two presents as an overview of the many benefits reported worldwide in the last three decades.
