Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience
by Graham Nicholls - April 2012

The writing of Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience has reconnected me with many of the people who were around me as a young teenager when I first started my journey with the out-of-body experience (OBE) and astral projection. Just a few weeks ago I was contacted by my old friend Kirsty, who, about eighteen years ago, was also one of first people with whom I had shared my ideas. She had found me again online and was very happy to see that I was now working with a wider public in much the same way I had worked with her. She could recall the times that we had talked about the book I was going to write and how I envisioned it stepping into new territory. When she saw that Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience would be published she knew I had achieved something I’d held in my heart for a long time.

After so many years it was interesting to hear how we had gone in different directions in our lives, yet we had arrived at similar understandings. I had explored my creativity through art and writing, and she had been drawn to science. Yet now she wanted to look back into the experiences she’d had all those years before. I, on the other hand, had become increasingly scientific in my journey to understand not just what an OBE is, but how I can most successfully teach others to have them. In the end we both view the world with scientific eyes, but can see that there are things that do not fit within the framework of the materialist ideologies that dominate the science establishment.

For many sceptics, out-of-body experiences have been explained away and can simply be ignored. Yet, does the evidence...

An Interview with Grahamn Nicholls, Author of Navigating the Out-of-Bod Experience
by Llewellyn

1. Your book is titled, Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience. What inspired you to write about the topic? Graham Nicholls

I have been having out-of-body experiences (OBEs) since the age of twelve; the first few lasted just a few seconds and were spontaneous, but inspired an interest in me to learn what this state of awareness was and whether it could be induced intentionally. This led me to begin reading on the subject, and at the age of fourteen I had my first self-initiated OBE after around sixth months of practice. From that point on I started to realise that certain things would signal the most conducive conditions for leaving the body. I made detailed notes in my diaries of what was happening to me, and even then could see I was charting territory that few others had. I knew I would one day write a practical guide on the subject—but one unlike any other. At the time I probably didn’t realise that my book would be probably the most scientific on the subject, or that it would use such a personalised approach and would move beyond the visualisation methods that dominate the genre, but I could already sense that I was walking a different path to the ones I’d read about. When I wrote my first book, Avenues of the Human Spirit, I wanted to share something of the journey I’d been on, and how it had transformed me on a personal and spiritual level. But I knew this was not enough; I wanted others to be able to explore those areas of human consciousness for themselves, and maybe avoid some of the common pitfalls. That is why I wrote Navigating the Out-of-Body Experience.

2. How exactly would you define an out-of-body experience, or OBE?

Revealing the Books of Secrets
by David Rankine

Over the last thousand years there have been several distinct streams of Western magical practice. Running parallel are the grimoires, which focus on preparation and complex procedures to produce effective communication and interaction with spiritual beings, and the Books of Secrets, full of simple techniques using easily available ingredients. Both of these traditions have influenced many of the more recent magical traditions and practices that have developed in recent centuries. However, until recently the importance of the early Book of Secrets tradition has been largely ignored. Here magician David Rankine explains the rich, magical history behind these books.

Table tipping is a type of physical mediumship that has been in use for many years, enjoying a tremendous popularity during the heyday of spiritualism in the mid to late 1800s, falling out of favor for a time, and once again experiencing a resurgence of interest. But it is merely a tool for spirit communication, or does table tipping offer much more? Teresa Lally, author of Table Tipping for Beginners: A Time-Honored Way to Talk to Spirits, explains a few of the uses of table tipping.
