Recently I came back to Bruce Moen’s books in order to remind myself His experiences and insights on the OoBE matter. Here is some quote:

“From my friend Rebecca, I learned how to prepare for such emotionally charged encounters in the future. Her technique is taken from The Course In Miracles, which says that any defense serves only to invite attack. Pushing the door of my awareness closed against the pressure of those emotions had been a mistake. My preparation for trips to places like Oklahoma City now begins with her affirmation. ‘All my energy channels are clean, clear, open and functioning perfectly. Any energies I encounter pass through me easily with no effect.’ I try to remember to use this one all the time.”
(Voyages into the unknown, Bruce Moen)

When I read that (especially the bolded phrase in the affirmation) it reminded me of the Bene Gesserit “Litany against fear” - which goes as follows:

“I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”
(Dune, Frank Herbert)

In both cases what seems to be crucial is to let emotions pass through You - instead of block or deny them. For some people it may be a revolutionary approach - a kind of realization that You don’t need to block anything in order to experience only what You desire. Allowing all emotions pass through You, it is still possible to choose which one You acknowledge as useful and worth attention - and which one You just ignore. But what is important in that attitude is that there is no pressure created by resistance toward anything which You consider inappropriate for You. Like Bruce said: “any defense serves only to invite attack” - we can find similar message in The Secret (by Rhonda Byrne), for example that quote:

“The reason that what you resist persists is because if you're resisting something, you’re saying, ‘No, I don’t want this thing, because it makes me feel this way - the way I am feeling right now.’ So you’re putting out a really strong emotion of, ‘I really don't like this feeling,’ and then it comes racing toward you.”
