Sixteen Ways to Leave Your Body
Just slip out the back, Jack. But really, I was cleaning out old junk
and throwing away a ton of stuff when I found this handwritten list from
about 10 years ago. I must have copied it from somewhere, but
unfortunately am unable to credit the source. I hope you find it useful
in conjunction with the other techniques people are discussing.
- Imagine a mirror image of yourself twenty feet behind you. Imagine
yourself moving backwards towards it.
- Imagine a mirror image of yourself six feet in front of you. "Urge"
yourself towards it.
- Try to urge yourself eighteen inches above your physical head.
- Imagine your astral power steaming out of the pores of your body and
condensing into a double above you.
- Imagine yourself climbing a rope or ladder.
- Imagine yourself as a point of light floating on top of water in a
rapidly filling tank. Your task is to exit through a tiny hole in the
roof of the tank.
- Imagine what it feels like to breathe through your ears.
- Sit erect, with closed eyes, and imagine a horizontal bar above your
line of sight. Urge yourself up to see over it. Hold your breath in when
you get a sensation of rising.
- Tighten the muscles in your hands and feet and contract your stomach
muscles and imagine yourself falling.
- Imagine yourself revolving around on tiptoe and then springing off at
- Imagine a whirlpool. Feel yourself being sucked down through the
vortex. Try for a sensation of contraction, then expansion.
- Imagine a twirling star hanging in space.
- Visualize a spinning disk, and then distend its center so that it
grows into a three-dimensional rotating cone or vortex, like a
waterspout. Now resolve it back into a disk again. Feel yourself entering
- Imagine yourself carried along on the crest of a wave.
- Imagine a point of light two feet in front of your throat. Feel it
slowly approach. When it reaches you, imagine yourself blending with it
and becoming that point of light.
- Seat yourself in a comfortable chair four feet away from a mirror.
Staring at your mirror image, repeat your name over and over until it
becomes a series of meaningless sounds. Now pretend the person in the
mirror is the "real" you.
