These instructions were created so that the phenomenon of out-of-body experiences and lucid dreaming (out-of-body experience) could even be successfully explained in practical terms by a person who, for one reason or another, has no experience at all. That is to say, if a person with no experience gets a group of students together and works with them in strict adherence to these instructions, then they will not only succeed at entering out-of-body experience state, but will do so on a regular basis. These instructions were written with inexperienced instructors in mind for the simple reason that the aforementioned scenario is quite common.
In pursuit of their desire to make money or earn some authority, many adhere to the principle that a swimming instructor doesn’t necessarily have to know how to swim. In the past, such opportunists would have simply discredited the phenomenon itself or disappointed society’s hopes in it. Until this book came out, they simply had nowhere to find a real methodology for teaching phase states – there were no books, there was no such profession, and there weren’t even any abridged instructions. As a result, the role of instructional material was filled by run-of-the-mill books on the topic written by people who weren’t specialists in the field, nor even practitioners themselves 90% of the time.
However, the more real practical experience the instructor has, the better. To obtain such experience, one should follow the OOBE Research Center instructions for individual practice that are described in detail in the book out-of-body experience, which is available as a free download in every major world language.
Any kind of primitive or even spontaneous experience will lend authority and add credence to an instructor’s words. On the other hand, if an instructor is an average practitioner able to enter out-of-body experience in at least one of ten indirect attempts, this will allow him to field many unique and specific student questions, as well as explain the methods more clearly by referring more to his own experience than these instructions.
An instructor should ideally be an advanced practitioner, i.e. someone who is successful at using the indirect method at least one third of the time (not counting spontaneous experiences). Considering that it’s completely realistic to achieve a success rate of 90% and above using the indirect method, this is not an overly difficult requirement. It’s just the opposite. This level of personal experience will allow the instructor to thoroughly explain methods and techniques, give more examples from his personal practice, find answers to the most unique and specific questions that students ask, and make fewer mistakes when explaining finer points regarding techniques. If this is the case, it will allow for instruction of the highest quality and level of effectiveness.
If the instructor wants to be included on the official list of School of Out-of-Body Travel instructors, he will have to comply with strict requirements regarding having a steady and regular practice, which is to be described and substantiated in his application. On the other hand, if someone’s aim is to be become an independent instructor or use these instructions for some personal goal or another, then he might be at any level in his practice. The most important thing is to follow the instructions.
Nonetheless, any self-respecting person should at least strive to master what he teaches others. It’s not possible to be a true professional in this field without doing so, and the instructor’s actual level of practical knowledge will sooner or later be brought to light by the large number of real practitioners who will often be among his students. You can’t achieve great heights in this field without a real personal practice of your own.
