I seem to be on an 'OBE roll' this week. I suspect it has something to do with being relaxed and not having to get up early. We still have another week and a half left of the summer hols. Once the schools start and my rhythm has to change so may the OBE frequency.
For me, the best time to leave my body is early morning, as my body wants more sleep but my mind is ready for some action. This morning I automatically woke up in the mind awake/body asleep state. I got out of my body and remembered the experience of the day before where I was flying around in a kind of loop not being able to get out of the room.
At first the window was black, the blinds were down and it was dark. Then as I made the intention to go outside, the window and the wall became transparent and I could see outside. So I knew where I was going before I set off.
I got outside there were a few extra houses where normally there aren't and a few differences to how my area usually is. I wanted to go somewhere natural, like the mountains or the sea to just chill out and relax. I closed my astral eyes and thought about mountains, expecting that when I opened them I would find myself somewhere else.
When I did open my astral eyes I was in the same place nothing had changed. After this my memory fails me and I don't remember anymore.
It is being shown to me time and time again that in order to use thought to travel somewhere in the astral, it has to be concentrated thought. My thought of wanting to go the the mountains wasn't strong enough to have an effect.
Focused, concentrated thought, definitely something to work on.
