About this deal

I bought the book because it sounded mega interesting and I read it captivated with my face locked into an open-mouthed emoji for the duration. For the curious, this is the book to get the best description of what people are talking about when they talk about OBE (Out of Body) or NDE (Near Death Experiences. It would be of great advantage in studying OOBEs to have trained “travelers” available who could produce the experience at will and who generally had the characteristics of a good reporter.

First, OOBEs are a universal human experience, not in the sense that they happen to large numbers of people, but in that they have happened all through recorded history, and there are marked similarities in the experience among people who are otherwise extremely different in terms of cultural background. Claro que esta es una suposición propia, ya que el autor solo se limita a contar su experiencia a través de notas.I would make a rough estimate that between 90 and 95 per cent of the people who have this experience are very glad it occurred and find it joyful, while 5 per cent are very frightened by it, for the only way they can interpret it, while it is happening, is that they are dying. I have told this story too many people over many years, and the response has always been a mild quizzical interest. I could go into the circumstances of the crime, but suffice it to say that it was little more then a few dumb teenagers doing dumb teenager stuff and getting in serious trouble for it. A young woman who was the friend of a neighbor did psychic readings and talked about "astral travel"--the term current up to then for OOBEs. Just a solid citizen who's been 'out' a thousand times now and wants to pass his experiences to others.

No digo que solamente los que han pasado por una situación similar tengan que leer ese libro, sino que en sí encierra a un público general y que es capaz de romper barreras de pensamiento si uno mismo lo permite.This is an excellent book to introduce the reader to Astral travel and the realities that exists just beyond the veil of perception. Monroe for me was one of the best, easy to relate to as he constantly reassures the reader that it took him years to manifest all the results. An event where the experiencer 1) seems to perceive some portion of some environment which could not possibly be perceived from where his physical body is known to be at the time and 2) knows at the time that he is not dreaming or fantasizing. After several physical examinations and in view that everything was fine, he asked a psychiatrist friend to honestly give him an opinion, luckily for Monroe, his friend encouraged him to 'explore' more. One aspect was that while he was in his "Second Body," in the disembodied state, his emotions were especially powerful and hard to control, and his conscious mind was relatively weak and ineffective.

Occasionally He will select someone from this living bridge, and this person is never seen or heard from again.As he gets into some theories later in the book, stating that it’s a very loose idea that is for consideration, I felt an eery correlation with a few other unrelated bodies of work. Por ejemplo, los seres ánimos, los supuestos ángeles, lo que aparentemente sucede después de la muerte. The only thing else I will say is that I know that at the time that this happened I believed that in fact it really happened - that I left my body and went into the lock of my cell door, and unlocked it. OBE's are something that I've instinctively been interested in since a young age as I used to think about think about them a lot and I also used to get myself into 'tingly' states as a child. But it's odd enough that I've always felt it deserved a retelling, and what better place for it to be retold then here.

I have had an interest in this genre for a number of years, and tried to focus on authors who are knowledgable in the area. Robert Allan Monroe has had wide career experience in communications, having written for newspapers and magazines, and worked in television and electronics. As science conquers the physical world there leaves only the quantum, or 'spiritual' realms left to explore, and until we advance in sufficiently our 'tangible technologies' it may only be studied by the 'psychonauts' brave enough to go there.

It is worth bearing this in mind because the book deals to some extent with how Monroe strove to reconcile his strange experiences with the prevailing ignorance of the materialist culture in which he was living. Whether this is merely a highly powerful form of the state we all know as 'dreaming', a life after death, or some uncanny, of yet under-explored ability to consciously induce a state wherein we explore a non-physical world using our purported non-physical bodies, is up to the reader to discover. The journeys were filled with unimportant details, and pretty much as interesting as someone describing his dreams in great details. El Escenario II que es el lugar común del alma (si se podría llamar así) donde aparecen otros seres y donde todo se basa en la relación existente entre el pensamiento – acción. In many cases, it simply happens during sleep without our having any idea of what might have caused it.
