      Hi - Have you checked out messages #60 and 62?
      They deal with OOB methodology. But please let me add
      that with OOB, and virtually everything else that
      deals with meditation, intention is very important. If
      our intention is to evolve and become purer vehicles
      of Truth, whatever we do will be beneficial for
      ourselves and everyone else. If what we do is for selfish
      reasons, we will ultimately suffer. For instance, if we
      just want to have OOB experiences simply to have
      another thrilling experience in our life, we will not
      gain as much as we would if our purpose was to really
      know that we are not just our physical body, and thus
      gain a degree of liberation. I don't want to
      discourage you from experimenting with OOB, because we do
      this every night during sleep. I feel that we should
      be aware at all times and that includes during
      sleep. This is called Lucid dreaming. But, as is true
      with many meditation techniques, it is beneficial to
      have good guidance at the start. Please use this
      message board for questions that may arise or if you just
      want to share. We will always try to help. I also feel
      that if the universe wants that guidance to be through
      a physical teacher, you will end up sitting in one
      of our classes, or in some other similar situation.
      If not, what you need will come to you when you need
      it. But, as I said before, a simple rule of thumb is
      to be very sure your intention is righteous and not
      just materialistic or egoistic, and you will not go
      wrong. I hope you enjoy you experiences, whether OOB or
      in the physical, and wish you peace and blessings.

        Hi Lora,
        I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
        http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
        listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
        easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
        quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
        breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
        onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.

        I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
        starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
        matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
        the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
        and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.

        Eve
