Hi, I'm new to this forum and have a question about the initialization of an oobe. Well, it's more of a problem, because it's cutting them short and preventing me from exploring.. What happens is that I'll be laying down and passing through the sleep transition, my hands and feet begin to feel a diffused tingling sensation (like holding a balloon that had been rubbed vigorously to produce a strong static field near my extremities,) and I'll feel/hear a clicking sound in the back of my head (top of the spine, in the neck area,) which increases in frequency (sometimes it's fast enough to sound like buzzing,) and then when it reaches its peak I am launched out of my body at I would estimate to be a dozen feet per second. I hear a rushing sound like wind blowing past my "ears", and I'll be sailing in a ballistic trajectory toward a wall in whatever environment I emerged to, and when I hit the wall my perception of the environment disintegrates and for a brief moment a wave of disorientation overcomes me as my senses re-integrate with my body, and then I'm fully awake. There have been a few times where the "escape velocity" was not so high so I was able to gain some navigation control and explore the environment, in those cases it was like being pulled out by a wave returning to the sea. Has anyone had problems like this initiating an oobe, or have any advice for someone with an issue like this? Thanks!
