Life in the Universe is boundless, although many on Earth have no concept of it. Even at your own level in what are called the lower dimensions, life can manifest in a number of different ways. Some of you see alternative life forms as something to be feared, but this arises from misunderstanding. Certainly there are situations which beg your careful approach, and you can be prone to interference by other entities if you are not cautious.
Many of you have had momentary out of the body experiences, but normally you cannot exercise control over what happens. There is a difference from experiencing an accidental release from your body, as against one that is intentional and controlled by you.
Try releasing yourself for a few moments from the traumas of Earth. Quieten yourself and use relaxation techniques that allow you to clear your mind of your earthly worries. Now, imagine projecting your mind out of your physical body to a location of your choosing. It could for example be with the intention of rising up into the higher dimensions.
