This May, 2017, the International Academy of Consciousness (IAC) will be conducting eight experiments aimed at validating the Out-of-Body Experience as an objective phenomenon. The experiments, held in Miami, will be conducted in cooperation with an independent third-party scientific organization and will take place during IAC’s Projective Field Workshop. The IAC aims to increase public awareness of research on parapsychic phenomena and also to help people to develop their skills in this area.
Last year The London Express reported that a breakthrough study in Sweden had shown that out of body experiences are real. Many people have claimed to have experienced the phenomenon when they come close to death or when undergoing surgery, for example, claiming that they can see everything that is going on around them from a different perspective while unconscious. Medical experts have debated for some time whether it is real, but a breakthrough study has seemed to confirm the existence of the phenomenon.Neuroscientists from Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet created an out-of-body illusion when they placed study participants in a brain scanner, and used an illusion to ‘teleport’ the individuals to different locations in a room. Arvid Guterstam, lead author of the present study, said: “In a matter of seconds, the brain merges the sensation of touch and visual input from the new perspective, resulting in the illusion of owning the stranger’s body and being located in that body’s position in the room, outside the participant’s physical body.”Within the IAC framework, the Out-of-Body Experience can be used as an important tool to help individuals see for themselves that they are more than the physical body, to overcome their limitations, expand self-knowledge, and even overcome the fear of death.See also: Robert Monroe’s books, Journeys Out of the Body, Far Journeys, and Ultimate JourneySee also: William Buhlman’s video, The Out of Body Experience
