Years after reading this book, I experienced some of the things Monroe wrote about were true to my own life. Not until a first-person experience did I understand what Monroe meant by "vibrations" (the first step toward an out of body experience). Monroe is classic reading on this topic, and I recommend "Journeys Out of the Body" to anyone interested in such things.
Suddenly there was a very loud whistling and crackling sound in my ears and a rush of consciousness and I stood up in my dream more awake than I had ever felt before, everything that had been present in my dream was still there, buildings, streets and gardens, none of which I recognised. What the hell was going on? I remember the shire disbelief and shock that this was actually happening to me, I was wide awake in a dream, conscious of all my faculties and able to make conscious decisions about where I would go and what I would do, although something attached to me from behind was definitely pulling me back as if I was wading through Ink. I clearly remember looking down at the clothes I was wearing and then at my hands, I got really scared at that point because I thought I had died in my sleep.Read more ›
After he developed the skill to the point where he could do it at will, he eventually met Dr Charles Tart, in the early 1960's, then at the University of Virginia, Parapsychology Dept. Tart would have a computer generate a random 6 digit number, display it on a display ten feet up in the air (that no one could see). Monroe would leave his body, go up read the number, come back and tell Charlie Tart what the number was!
A real controlled experiment. Over and over.
This is documented in Tart's groundbreaking 1960's classic book on parapsychology, "Altered States of Consciousness", the first scientific book to discuss these possibilities and how to run experiments with them.
Later, Bob, with various guidance from those he encountered and a lot of experimentation on himself and various gifted others, discovered a technology, Hemisync, to allow people to experience this themselves. Even scoffers and skeptics.
Yes, there is the The Monroe Institute hidden in the hills of Virginia. Yes, the best way to learn this stuff is to ante up and go there. Beyond that, buying each of the Gateway series, starting with "Discovery", from TMI and a great deal of practice is the best way to learn. You get out of it what you put in. Frankly, most people are idly curious but also too fearful, superstitious or lazy to get anywhere. But for those few who persevere, it is life-altering. Practice, practice, practice.
I don't think this is his best book, he changed his mind as he went along, but you need to read this to have a clue about the later ones. I would also recommend Far Journeys and Ultimate Journey.
My friend Bob... died in 1995, in a world of phonies, he remains an OOBE authentic, a friend and a pathfinder.
