I became familiar with Monroe through his books and later the CD's. They worked fine up untill the time I lost the hearing in my right ear. I am still waiting for someone with information about the audio technology to contact me? Anyone home? I would LIKE to enroll for a program but am skeptical that it will be useful as I am deaf in my right ear. It is my understanding that for the brain to be fooled into thinking it is perceiving a binaural beat, This is done by feeding something like 100hrz in one ear and 90hrz in the other giving a binaural of 5. Since my right is almost completely dead this isn't going to happen as far as I can tell. Before I lost my right hearing I used the Monroe CD's successfully. After the deficit they have been useless. That's not to say I have not had some interesting visuals happen as a result of just ordinary meditation, BUT THAT IS NOT the same. Before the deafness, the audio technology actually enhanced the experiences. Not anymore. HERE IS MY QUESTION: Since I have about 10 to 15 % hearing in my right ear, up in the very very high range (I cannot hear any normal lower range), can the audio technician, assuming there is one, tailor the sound for my individual Chec Unit or do you just feed the same AUDIO CD's to everyone...one shoe fits all? Obviously one shoe does NOT fit all. Is each chec unit tailored for the individual in them? So far no one at Monroe has had the courtesy to get back to me.

I have been wanting to go to TMI as well but am considered profoundly deaf having, aided 45-50% hearing in left ear and 10% in right. I was wondering if it would do anything for me. I have had passive hearing evaluations in the past and they say there is no electric activity on that side of my scalp. I am going to try Amish Healing to see if I can regain it. I would love to get some answers to some of the things that have happened to me and I think OBEs are what I need

I couldn''t figure out how to start a new topic thread. So will just post this here for now. I found out about the Monroe institute by reading Robert Monroes books. I can't wait to visit for the gateway program. Now that the general introduction is over. I have been useing the gateway C.D.s for five months now. Spending roughly a month on each wave. At first I would just fall asleep or it wouldn't seem like much was happen. Now after many months of useing them three to five times a week. I have noticed some profound changes. For one I can now recall one or two dreams in detail a night. I also have stopped fallen asleep when listen to the C.D.s. I also seem to get into a very deep meditative state now while listen in much less time. The most interesting changed I have noticed though is seeing "energy blobs" for lack of a better term. I was wondering if any of you have seen them or have an insights into what they are. To clearlify as best I can "energy blobs" are these intensely colored bright shapes that stick out against the background of the blackness. They have a couple diff shades of Color to them and are for sure not the normal black and white specks you see when you close your eyes. They sometimes hover very close to my vision in a blob. At other times they seem to be circles or almost turn into a tunnel that flys over me. Sometimes it seems like there is two or three of them each distantly doing independent movements, at other times they just seem to hover in front of me. I have tried asking them questions, asking them to take me places, ect. I was just wondering if anyone else have experienced these energy blobs? They didn't seem to show up till a month or so of practicing. Again I would have started a new thread for this but couldn't figure out how too. Seeing as this is a little off topic. Glad to see people posting on here now though. Always amazes me to see how many people from all over find there way to the Monroe Institute.

My own personal experiences having OOBEs lead me to Dr. Monroe's books and eventually here. :)

hi im having just a relative simple question about brainwave activity. from what i know is that being in a OOB state your brainwave is in about 4-hz right? now bob monroe found out that beeing in this state, your brain wave activity also goes to the gamma length? so you are in a 4 hz (theta) brainwave state and in a (over) 35 hz gamma state? can some one help me out with this, im writing for a german OOB website Thx love, Priogeth.

Hello, I am from Greece and my name is Thanos. I post on this thread because i cannot create a new one.. So here it comes.. I suppose that the consciousness (souls) while being not on the physical dimension knows the theory of material life and wants to gain first hand experience on that theory (reason of incarnation to the physical life.) And so the questions are.. 1) When having an OBE isn’t it like looking at the answers of a test? - We seek guidance for the material life and thus we are not letting life’s path unfold so as to gain experience. - We seek guidance and a glimpse on the non-material dimensions but life is here on the physical.. - Why aren’t we satisfied with the fact that we live in the physical and take the “test” to increase our experience as a fact of life and so we are looking to have OBE’s so as to see the rest of the universe? - While having OBE’s we usually start from a low level on the non-physical… Does this mean that our soul is in reality untrained at this point to go straight into the higher self? If indeed the soul was experienced i suppose it would show right away.. So are we talking about "new souls" at the timeline of them all? 2) It is said that billions of souls are placed on the consensus realities (heavens) just a level up from the physical dimension. - Are these souls reincarnate to the physical? - If yes, this is strange, because as i can understand, this function is supposed to be for an upgraded soul, and thus they are not as ignorant as we think they are for the further existence of dimensions and available functions. If no, what can be of a help so as they will be able to move further on? (would it be something like an event of knowledge (from luck) that they get i.e OBE's for the humans but in some nonphysical form? I hope i make sense..

Hello, all my questions were answered through the explorer series. Thank you for your understanding.. It seem that i discovered the explorer series "out of the blow" just right after i placed my questions.. One last question that is bothering most of us. - Was the creator created..? This one might not have an easy answer.. At least not on this current plane.. With regards, Thanos

I'd heard of Bob Monroe a number of years ago, and had read the book Soul Journeys some years ago. It was only recently that I'd also read the book Cosmic Journeys. I decided to read Journeys out of the Body, which I'm still making my way through (very interesting, BTW). I bought a copy of Far Journeys a few days ago, which I'll tackle next. I read the book Ultimate Journey a number of years ago as well, but I'll read it again in the proper sequence. I must say they're some of the most interesting books I've ever read.

Thanks for the Welcoming. Goal is to reach the MC2 Program and eventually Focus 49. Looking forward to communicating with like minded folks. I am a total newbie with a vision. Completed through Advanced Focus 10 with the Gateway Series. I am really looking forward to attending the 5 day programs. Feel free to reply for any reason. -Nick

I had a spontaneous OOBE in 1974 which scared the heck out of me. Ran across Far Journeys in a book store a few years later. It was 1997 when I finally had the time, money, and nerve to attend the Gateway program. I had such a tremendously positive experience that I have attended 8more programs. TMI is my spiritual home. Wish I could do another program designed by Karen Malik. Exploration Essence and Graduate Exploration Essence were really entrance into the Field of Pure Unconditional Love. The Void is Formless but not Emptiness. All my love to Bob Monroe for making this possible.
