For those of you who have had little or no experience with this activity, it is important to note what kind of experience we are really talking about. We are not talking about some vague hallucination. We are talking about achieving a state of total clarity and aliveness while out of your body. When you find yourself fully conscious outside of your body and it feels as real as your normal physical experience, you begin to stop and wonder. When you have had this experience several times, it becomes difficult to dismiss it as a fluke or figment of your imagination, and it might well begin to alter the way you look at your universe.
Working with your dreams on a regular basis can be tremendously valuable for examining as well as altering belief systems. We will discuss this further in Chapter 8. If you are so inclined, you may want to use your emotions to discover beliefs. Often our limited concepts of how we “should” behave and what we “should” feel result in a selective repression of certain emotions. Some emotions we think are inappropriate, some we disapprove of, and some we simply fear. To say that the repression of emotion has caused humankind considerable difficulty is an understatement.
Different types of thoughts and emotions will move and change as long as you do not block them. It’s only when you focus on “negative” thoughts and beliefs that you create difficulties. Second, it’s far more of a burden to be powerless over the events in your life than to be responsible for them. Creating your own experience doesn’t mean you should examine your failures or weaknesses and then feel guilty. It means that you have power—power to create changes and make things more to your liking. This is hardly a burden.
