The Silver Cord

Excerpt from Love Promised, Chapter One –

Not long after these experiences in the early ‘90s, I began browsing the New Age section of the bookstores.  My silent search to learn about OBEs led me down only a few avenues, as there were not many books written on the topic 40 years ago.  During a trip to visit my brother and his family in Virginia, when I was in my teens, Dad took me to a bookstore at the Edgar Cayce Institute to help me find something that might provide insight into my experiences.  But it wasn’t until later that I purchased an amazing book that brought tears to my eyes: The Silver Cord-Lifeline to the Unobstructed, by Martha Barham, and James Greene.  My quest for answers to some long-held questions had finally been satisfied.  Unlike inspirational books, which were no doubt extraordinary, this one provided knowledge that rang true to my heart and helped me to understand that my experiences were, in fact, normal.

 “Even though our body and soul are tightly intertwined and the curtain is drawn during our incarnation, the entity within us has out-of-body experiences (OBEs) all through our physical life….We are not usually aware of leaving our body, as this occurs most naturally in sleep, when the physical body is at rest and safe.”  (Silver Cord—Lifeline to the Unobstructed)

I immediately honed in on the words “not usually,” and feeling relieved while wiping my tears, I was so eager to read more that I didn’t put the book down until finishing it that same weekend.  The authors go on to say that the OBE is very nurturing for us, as we actually go “home” into an unobstructed universe, and we usually don’t have a clear memory since the experience is screened from our conscious mind upon returning.  Furthermore, they say, “this is so designed in order to maximize the challenges during our search for individual destiny.”
