In one of Belsebuub’s books, I had learnt about several meditation techniques to silence the mind, and I decided to try out one of those meditations called a koan. I wanted to experience what it would be like to fall asleep with no thought in my mind, and have an out of body experience into the 6th dimension.
I practiced during a 2-week period trying to achieve this.
Setting up a Schedule
During this training period, in addition to the Koan meditations, I trained my mind to concentrate better using three concentration/visualisation practices per day, and try as much as I could to concentrate on what I was doing during the day.
I would meditate on the koan two to three times a day, with one time usually in the early evening, which seemed to be the best time for me to do it.
The 2 weeks were almost over with seemingly no progress in getting any closer to silencing the mind or falling asleep while meditating. I seemed to continually get taken away by other random thoughts and images in my mind and into a fantasy/daydream.
During a meditation session towards the end of the two-weeks I had set, I really tried to get beyond my mind, to not allow any thought apart from those related to the koan exercise come in, and really try and quieten my mind.
Towards the end of this particular meditation, some results started to show. I could feel everything that I thought I was start to drop away, while I simultaneously started to feel like I was “collapsing” into myself — which is just as Belsebuub described this type of experience happening.
Then all of a sudden, I could feel that I was a part of everything and that everything was a part of me. Yet I still had my sense of self.
This feeling only lasted for a moment before it was smothered by an overwhelming reaction to what was happening, which subsequently separated me from everything else and had me thinking about ‘me’ again.
While I didn’t have an Out-of-Body Experience into a higher dimension, this experience made me question if this oneness is something that could be felt all the time?
