Vast numbers of individuals and clustering groups of people are seeking ways to experience out of body (OBE), never mind that several of these people seeking to be out of their bodies are actually seldom in their bodies in the first place - more than 50 percent of their energetic fields are hanging out in the ethers...

My personal experience is that for a major part of my life I had been out-of-my-body more than in it. And even now making conscious efforts to become more aware of my body and to actually be IN MY BODY continually I struggle with yanking myself back in. My spiritual nature is floaty. Grounding exercises help tremendously with maintaining a balance of our physical and spiritual bodies.

For years I thought that being out-of-body equated with being an enlightened or more spiritual being. I have since learned (urr...remembered) that I AM already a spiritual being. Being here on the planet means that I have this unique opportunity to be housed within a physical shell. Why discard or disdain the physical house? Without our bodies we wouldn't be able to enjoy the physical pleasures such as eating or sexual intimacy among many other physical sensations. After all, how could the spiritual body devour chocolate?

Out of body experiences done in a controlled fashion are safer and more fulfilling. Cherish your physical body as a place to return safely home to after the spiritual journey, not as a place to run away from.

I recall a couple of years ago sitting in the grasses among another 20-25 individuals to listen to a spiritual oriented man share his astral projection journeys. During the Q&A period, the conversation drifted into tips and how-to's for performing astral sex with another person. If you have astral sex with someone outside of your marriage would it be considered infidelity?

Grounding exercises can help us floating spiritual beings become more connected to our physical bodies. Balance is good!
