Outer body experiance

So, i was wondering am i the only one to have an outer body experience? I was asking my friends and they didn't seem to know what would be classed as an outer body experience. Which came as a great shock to me, as they knew the word,then surely they'd know the definition;apparently not.
SO to clean up any miss understanding, a outer body experience is "a vivid feeling of being detached from one's body,usually involving observing it and its environment from nearby." This definition comes from the Collins English dictionary.   It is also known as OBE or OOBE. some people have a near death experience which can cause an OBE. However, not everyone dies to experience an outer body experience. This link shows how some people have a voluntary outer body experience  

Here is a story i found on the internet:

  • My Son's OBEs
About a year and a half ago, my son Jay, nine years old, started having what I think are spontaneous out-of-body experiences. The first one happened when he was camping with his father and his father's girlfriend (we have been separated since Jay was one year old). Jay told me later that he was drifting off to sleep in the tent about twenty metres from where his father was sitting at the campfire. All of a sudden, he had a burst of energy and thought he had woken up as he was now sitting right in front of the campfire listening to his father talk to his girlfriend. After some time he turned around to head back to the tent, which is when he saw his body still lying in the tent, apparently asleep. When he told his father what had happened, he was scolded and told that it wasn't true, and that if it was true it was the devil trying to enter his body, so he had better stop it.
I assumed this was a dream until a few months later when he came to me one morning and asked, "Why do you take your socks off to go to sleep, Mum?" I asked him how he knew this as he is always asleep before I go to bed. He replied, "Because I was standing in front of your bed watching you take off your socks and glasses, have a drink of water and turn the light off before you went to sleep. "But I had the door shut and I don't remember seeing you," I told him. He explained that he had come into my room while his body was still in his bed asleep.
I was in hospital when he had his next OBE. He said it was late at night and he saw a nurse with black hair and a gold broach in the form of a cat on her uniform above her nametag. She was talking to me and I was crying. All of this was true: I was crying because I felt bad at not being able to be home with him on the school holidays.
Two weeks later he came to me again - he told me about things I was talking about on the phone when I was at home in bed, about what book I was reading and how I had changed my winter pajamas for summer ones before I went to sleep. Again I asked him how he knew all this and he replied in a matter-of-fact tone, "Because I was in your room again last night while my body was sleeping."

On another occasion, we were driving to see my sister's new house in western Australia for the first time. Half way there Jay said, "I can see a huge room with a piece of wood about a foot from the ceiling going all the way around the wall in this room, and the ceilings are twice as high as normal -- but I don't know where I have seen the room before." After we arrived, we had a tour of the house. When we got to my sister's room, Jay said, "Mum, this is the room I saw when we were driving to Aunty Leah's house."

Hey everyone, it's been ages since my last post but i was searching for inspiration and I've been busy with my exams. 
So today's post is about superstitions. When typed into Google to get a definition, i got: "A widely held but unjustified belief in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event, or a practice based on such a belief". In my own words, i'd describe superstition as believing something bad or good will happen after doing something -Cause and effect. For example, my friend Sarah when ever she sees three drains she avoids stepping over them and then spits on them. When i asked what she was doing, she explained it was "bad luck" to step on/over a series of three drains. 
Every place has it's own different superstitions. Some areas are more superstitious then others, but the point of superstitious beliefs are to help or protect you,(depending on the particular belief). Usually, it is a culturally belief or a belief formed from an experience. 

Here are some examples of common superstitions:

  •  Breaking a mirror results in seven years of bad luck! :O
  • Walking under a ladder is bad luck, well it is if it falls on you. Logical thinking i'd say. 
  • If you spill salt, it is bad luck so to undo this you take a pinch and throw it over your left shoulder.
  • A U-shaped horseshoe on the front of your house it to good for protection. 
  • If you drop a table knife expect a male visitor, however drop a fork expect a female visitor,.
  • The bride and groom must not see each other on the day of the wedding, until they are getting married, otherwise it's bad luck. 
  • You may remember this one from when you were little - stepping on cracking in the pavement is thought to be bad luck.
  • Opening an umbrella indoors- bad luck.
  • Carrying a rabbits foot is meant to be good luck... well not for the rabbit anyway. 
  • Finding a four leaf clover is meant to be really lucky, however it's rare to find them.
  • Actors and actresses don't say Macbeth on stage as it's bad luck, so refer to it as the Scottish play.
  • If you make a wish and then throw a penny into a wish well, it is thought your wish will come true.
  • Putting a hat on a bed is bad luck.
  • Knocking on wood to make something come true. Ever noticed when your parents say something negative such as we've had such good weather, now i've said that it'll change. Hopeful not through. *knocks on wood*
  • When you sneeze someone says "bless you" and your told not to say thank you as it kills the fairies. I remember this one from brownies. :')
