Getting into the habit of writing down anything that comes to you as soon as you wake up in the morning is an essential part of the OBE process, it is not all about trying to bring on the vibrations and getting ‘out there’, writing down what you experience as soon as possible will increase the possibility of remembering exactly what happened, what you saw, how you felt etc. It can also increase the occurence of OBEs as writing them down means you are focusing more on them.
It’s not always easy to get into the habit of writing as soon as you wake, personally I like reading as it gives me time to get my head into gear but it’s not the best thing to do first if I want to remember as musch as possible from my dreams and OBEs. I have to admit sometimes I say to myself ‘oh I’ll write it down later’ but when I get round to it the major part of the experience has disappeared from my immediate memory, ‘if only I had written down a few key words’ I say to myself.
The reason for writing all dreams and OBEs is that there may be a connection between them, this has been true for me many times and the only way I have been able to make that connection is because I had recorded the dreams and OBEs on paper and as I reread could see a pattern emerging.
Of course using a computer or tablet is even more useful as you can do word searches to find any common denominators. I talk about a particular appication called ‘Journey’ in one of my videos, it truly is an excellent tool.
It’s the habit thing which is important and will lead to consistancy, we are so good at acquiring bad habits sometimes good habits can take a little longer to acquire, I wonder why? I have the habit of going for a cappuccino every morning it was an easy habit to get into, waking up and writing down dreams and OBEs proved a little more difficult, often I just write keywords and write it all down over my coffee when I am more awake. It’s not ideal but depending on the length os experiences I sometimes need to dedicate more time than I have.
Waking up ten or fifteen minutes earlier is a solution, but whatever method you use, recording in some way our experiences is essential to understanding fully our OBEs, if you don’t remember a dream or OBE you can’t reflect on its content, discover meanings etc.
In conclusion my advice is to really make an effort to make writing your experiences a habit, if you do it for long enough it will naturally become a part of your morning routine.
