I'm out of body a lot now. I've been doing that since I was a teen, but now the two main differences now compared to then are:
1. Back in the day, I projected straigtht out of relaxed awake body, just whoosh and I'm up on the ceiling. Now it's almost 100% projecting from Lucid Dreaming aka "waking inside the dream". Comes to the same thing as far as mental clarity of the experience and it is the same state of consciousness, but the dream world has more variety and weirdness happening than just projecting to your own bedroom ceiling.
2. I used to get kind of scared when it happened. Maybe even at that tender age I'd read too much about Bardo demons and such. Now being out never scares me in the least. I just fly around, see what's going down.
