My third book, Shattered Boundaries, is a story about an incest survivor who falls in love with a homosexual who has AIDS and learns to journey out of her body. While on a journey, she runs into “trouble” and as a result stays away from her body too long. When she returns it is to her own funeral.  I have been surprised how few people have heard of OOBES, and was glad this week to read The ESP Enigma: The scientific case for psychic phenomenon,”  by Diane Hennacy Powell, M.D. Chapter 7 is titled “Was She Out of Her Mind, or Just Out of Her Body?”dreams test for google

I am toying with writing a sequence to my book, involving those characters in addition to a TULPA, but probably even fewer folks know what tulpas are. (Available on Amazon via Create Space}.

  • I had to look up TULPA. I think I’ve heard of it before but forgot: After reading the definition: ”… is a concept in mysticism of a being or object which is created through sheer spiritual or mental discipline alone” I had the strange thought that such an emanantion could happen spontaneously as well, not having known much or anything about it before.


  • I wonder if I had an OOBE before? I think so although I don’t remember the actual time it could’ve happened, but I had a dream about it. And had to look up TULPA: ” … is a concept in mysticism of a being or object which is created through sheer spiritual or mental discipline alone” and having read this I had the strange thought that it could happen spontaneously as well. Wouldn’t know where that came from. Presently reading a kind of biography of Carl Jung by Laurens van der Post if that’s any clue or consolation.


    • I must confess I’ve never had an OOBE tho I know some who have. At a conference on dreams in Charlottesville one year a professor speaking of them said he has them and chooses to meditate while having an OOBE and sees mandalas! They seem marginally connected with lucid dreams. As for Tulpas, I thought it might add something to a fantasy novel. I know there’s a big blog on them but I haven’t really read it.
