I haven't initiated an OBE in over a year, and recently have been having a lot of difficulty and no success. I think perhaps it was my major vibrational change. When I was depressed, it was easier to blank all thought out and just surrender to the vibrations. Not that I want
to go back to that state, but I figured I need to find a new way to drive in this new gear. Personally, I just haven't explored the astral to my satisfaction yet.
So, thank you for this entry! It really helped clear up what I've been wondering lately, if this is like riding a bike (you never forget) playing the guitar (you just get rusty) or balletic grace (use it or lose it.)
