For those of you that want to access some of Frank's excellent practical phasing advice, I can do no better than guide you towards his classic 'Gateway Wave1 Pointers' thread.

It doesnt matter if you have never used The Monroe Institute's Gateway Series CDs, because the practical phasing advice that Frank provides here is really useful whether or not you use the CDs.
Here is the link(s) to the thread:

This is the original starter post by Frank:

His user name is 'Frank'.

The book is not forthcoming anytime in the near future as he was very ill. I don't know any more, Im sorry. This may be the best we'll get, and all his posts on the forums over the years which you can look up.

Yes, about 90% of the info is from his posts, with the additional 10% from his 2 newsletters that went out.

Believe me, there is MORE on the forums than what i have delivered so far... a lot more. Over 3000 posts as Selski has said. I concentrated mostly on the phasing model side of things, which is what he was most concerned about before he became ill.

It took me a good couple of months searching and then editing to bring this lot together.

As i said, I have had to paraphrase in some bits and restructure some sections in order to present it in the logical format that you see but the info is all his, in his own words as far as possible.

Search for the 'wave1 pointers thread'. Thatis a real classic and will help you lots with the practicals, it doesnt matter if you never use the wave 1 disks.

For those unfamiliar with his work, Frank is probably the top 'phasing' expert today. He has been a regular contributer to the Astral Pulse forums over the years and has provided invaluable advice to many. Frank's research has built upon the pioneering work of author Robert A Monroe (who coined the term 'phasing') and provides an update to it.

Frank's latest project has been to formulate a revised structural model to explain our astral reality and our place within it. Although Frank has since retired from on-line participation due to ill-health, I have provided a one-stop web resource which details his new model of astral reality as well as a host of related material. The information presented has been culled from his many posts on the forums over the years, and I would encourage those who are interested in his research to seek out his many contributions, where all this information and more, can be found.

Enjoy!

86  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Projection Experiences! / Latest experience on: February 12, 2007, 22:52:59
I had an interesting trip last night, at least in terms of stunning visual scenery.

I became lucid at some point during the night. I immediately focused and willed myself to expand my  focus of awareness into F3/the astral.

I found myself on a high sea-cliff setting overlooking a wide bay. It seemed very Mediterranean or Caribbean and the sun was just settling down low in the horizon bathing everything in a wonderful golden light.

I was walking along the top of the craggy cliff into which was built/carved balconies and pillars, Greek style. The stone of the pillars and indeed the cliff itself was very light/sandy colour.

Anyway, I was walking along this veranda-like setting on the cliff, just observing this wonderful sunset effect and the golden light just bathing the cliffs and the pillars in this beautiful light. It was absolutely stunning. I don't think I've seen anything like it.

The golden sunset effect seems to be a recurring thing with me as anyone will know who has read my posts in the past, and I keep getting drawn to it for some reason.

Anyway, after a bit, I decided to experiment with looking for a guide/helper, as this issue has been in my mind recently, especially after editing Frank's postings on the subject.
My attempts in the past have not been overly successful but apparently the thing is to be more specific: Just shouting out for help generally is not much good. However, if you express a desire to meet a guide/helper then this can do the trick. Apparently the trick is to think this desire, rather than saying it. It seems to be a more direct means of communication.

As soon as I started expressing this desire mentally, I felt a movement begin. Before I knew it I was flying along above the cliff veranda setting to an area further along. I could feel a definite pull which seemed to be guiding me so I didn't resist but just let it take me where it wanted me to go.

After a few moments I zeroed in on a small group of maybe 3 or 4 people below me. I swooped down slowly until they were in front of me. As I touched down, to my suprise they appeared to be children. Maybe 12 years old or thereabouts? or at least, that is how they appeared.

They seemed friendly enough and one of them greeted me by saying 'hello there Bob', which I found a bit strange to say the least, especially seeing how I'm called Doug, but never mind! I then explained how I was looking to be introduced to my guide, at which point they said that they couldn't really help me with that.
At this point I came round to waking physical consciousness.

All in all a very enjoyable experience: the setting was really the main treat. I wonder if anyone else has ever come across anything like this?

Also, that feeling of a pull as you are guided toward a particular location of person was very interesting too and I am not sure what is controlling that. I did express a desire to meet a guide but after that I just went with the pull. The people I met, while friendly enough, didn't seem to fit the bill, so I'm still unsure as to what was going on.

All in all, an interesting experience.

Mustardseed,

You know, such is the domination of political correctness in Britain today that you would probably not be allowed to say what you just did there.

You might even be accusesed of being a racist or at least 'islama-phobic'!

The doctrine of political correctness is destroying free speech in Britain. I'm sure there is a similar problem in the US, but believe me, its far worse here!
88  World Cultures, Traditions and Religions / Welcome to World Cultures, Traditions and Religions! / Re: JESUS AND CHRISTIANITY REVEALED AS MYTH on: February 12, 2007, 11:45:59
The Hebrew stories which form the core of the OT are themselves derived from even earlier Sumerian legends. The myths of the great flood etc were common mesopotamian myths.

The Jews, being brought up in this cultural environment were no different but they adapted the mythology and interpreted it in their own way, as did everyone else.

For the ealiest stories of the Flood, read the Epic of Gilgamesh.
In the original Sumerian mytholology, it was the Gods who were peeved off with humanity and so decided to wipe the slate clean and start again. The version in the OT replaces 'the Gods' with 'God' but the basic story is the same.

The Jews did us a service as the OT is actually a great compendium of ancient mesopotamian mythology, much of which would have been lost if it had not been recorded. Although interpreted according to their own world view, it is not hard to strip this veneer away and see the ancient stories in their original Sumerian form.

I would definately recommend the Epic of Gilgamesh for those who havent read it. This never got directly included in the OT although the flood element did, but it is even more amazing as it is a direct piece of literature straight from ancient Sumer.

Jeehad:

Nothing develops in isolation or springs up fully formed at once:
Jewish religion and world view was influenced and continued on from ancient mesopotamian religion and mythology, Chirstianity was then influenced through Jewish and pagan neo-platonist thought, and then Islam was a continuation again from Christian thought. That is the way of things.

Right on, both of you!

Ultimately the crucial factor is how you react to the world around you, not the state of the world itself.

90  Healing / Welcome to Healing discussions! / Re: heal my depression on: February 05, 2007, 22:41:40
Lily:

Yes, but don't think by 'ending' it you will solve your problems, because you won't. You will still have to work out your emotional problems there. Nothing is solved.

The whole concept of 'suicide' in the physical world ultimately revolves around the idea that A) things will be somehow better over there, or B) everything ends.

The truth is, B: it doesnt 'end', you will still be you with all the same emotional problems you have now

and A: its true that there are 'better' places but you won't find them as your emotional state will be too mixed up. Your energies will not be compatible with the 'better places' you seek. *Like attracts like* in the astral, so what will happen is that you will transition and end up in some dismal suroundings fueled by your own depressive emotional state and find it populated by lots of other dismally depressed individuals. Hardly sounds like the ideal place for emotional stimulation to me.

Yes, people WILL be on hand to help you, that's the good news. So at some point you will either help yourself or someone else will help you to get out of it, but there is no telling how long this will take.
You see, it is not always so easy for other people to get through to you when you are so wrapped up in your emotional mess.

In the physical, it is easier as your suroundings stay constant. In the astral, thought = action and you will be wrapped up in suroundings fuelled by your own emotional energy

Feel free to ignore me but I guarantee you will regret taking your own physical life.

91  Healing / Welcome to Healing discussions! / Re: heal my depression on: February 04, 2007, 21:40:50
For those who think that by killing themselves they will end their problems: I'm afraid you are in for a big shock.

Whatever issues you have here, you will still have them over there when you transition, and you will still have to deal with them. That is the reality. You may wish just to 'end it all', but the concept of  'ending it all' is just a fallacy of our materialist society. You won't 'end it all'. *You will still be you* and you will still have to work through your emotional problems. There is no escape I am afraid. The astral is full of people who thought they had escaped their emotional problems by ending their physical lives. In the end they still have to deal with their problems, and help, while available, is by no means easier to come by as people can get so wrapped up in their own emotional mess that those from the outside find it very difficult to get through to them.

Your best chance of help is actually here and now. I'm sorry if this is not what you wanted to hear, but take it from me, that's the reality.

A detailed rundown of Frank's Model for the Wider Reality will be posted on a new section of this site shortly.

I have been working on this for some time. It should hopefully give you a detailed overview of the main facts you need to know about our Wider Reality or the astral world.

For practical phasing advice, all you need to look at is the all time classic 'Gateway Wave 1 Pointers' thread.

Even if you do not use the Gateway CDs, there is enough info there to get your phasing adventure off to a great start.

93  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Astral Consciousness! / Re: How do you know? on: February 02, 2007, 13:39:25
Yes. All dreams, lucid dreams, astral projections and out of body experiences are all facets of the same thing. The only thing that differs is your level of conscious awareness.

As for being 'all in the mind'. I would agree completely. It's just that you need to understand that there is a LOT MORE to 'the mind' than a lot of people realise... a lot more.

Frank's model for the Wider Reality will be posted on this forum shortly. I have been working on this for some time and will hopefully provide you with a detailed picture of where 'the mind' fits in with the bigger picture, that is - The Wider Reality.

In my experience of anesthetics, the drug puts you so far under that there is no conscious awareness.

There is no sense of time so basically you get the injection and next moment you're waking up again (groggily in my experience!). So , I don't really see that you will have much chance to do anything.

I'm interested by MisterJingo's account as he appears to have had some level of awareness while under. I think this is pretty unusual. Perhaps the drug level was lower.

95  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: For those in UK: any one see Castenada doc last night? on: February 01, 2007, 23:30:36
Well, because he was such a good writer, it is hard to know what he made up himself and what he got from elsewhere so there will always be a question mark over exactly what was what, I think.

Doug
96  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: For those in UK: any one see Castenada doc last night? on: February 01, 2007, 15:42:24
There is no doubt he was an amazing writer, added to that he had a genuine knowledge of Mexican culture and shamanic practice. So all he had to do was graft in some esoteric concepts and practices from a variety of other sources and walaah! 'The art of dreaming' etc

I guess his work still has genuine value because many of the concepts are from other works and still have spiritual value. Its just that he has given then a Mexican 'flavour' as it were... hmm feeling hungry now.

Still feel a bit conned though!

Doug

97  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / Re: For those in UK: any one see Castenada doc last night? on: January 30, 2007, 17:11:53
It was on BBC 4.

Pretty tragic story really. In the end, the Yaqui tribe have ended up being screwed over by countless hippies over the years who have misinterpreted their culture, and 5 of Castenada's closest followers, 'the witches' are believed to have killed themselves.

The body of one of them has since been found in the desert.

Doug
98  Astral Chat / Welcome to News and Media! / For those in UK: any one see Castenada doc last night? on: January 30, 2007, 16:58:39
I watched it and it was pretty interesting. I know a little of the man and have skimmed his books but this documentary was pretty damning. There is no real doubt that he had turned into your typical cult leader/guru by the end, complete with sex slaves etc.

There was also not a shred of evidence for any Yaqui shamans being remotely involved in the kind of things Castaneda was talking about (i.e. conquering death and turning into pure energy etc). He appears to have culled most of his teachings from other sources and then rearranged them in a Mexican shaman style 'flavour'. Researchers did manage to track down the widow of the man who was probably the name behind 'don Juan' but she said that although Castaneda and her husband (who was a shaman) did indeed talk a lot, nothing concerning the kind of things in his books were talked about and also Castaneda would be pretty unlikely to be a shaman himself (as he later claimed) since shamans have to engage in long periods of fasting and abstinence from sex which she says Castaneda was unwilling to do as he liked his women!

Also his work is not representative of Yaqui or indeed any other Mexican shamanic practice.
Real shamanic practice is actually more concerned with more practical matters, like changing the weather for better harvests, and so on.

I suppose his hardened believers will always counter with the claim that his enemies have conspired against him to fabricate all the negative evidence, but even if you do accept this, the evidence is pretty solid that there was something fishy going on.

The wierd thing is, even if it is all made up, it is still amazing writing and many people have found genuine spiritual value in it. Mind you, if he has culled his work from countless esoteric works then maybe it is not suprising that there are some genuine spiritual truths in there.

I would recommend any of Frank's posts. In particular, the classic 'Gateway wave 1 pointers' thread. You don't need to have a copy of the  Wave 1 cd as the info in the thread is so informative anyway.

100  Astral Projection & Out of Body Experiences / Welcome to Out of Body Experiences! / Re: Etheric travelling on: November 19, 2006, 16:09:15
Etheric travel is when you create a second body to project to the real time zone (physical).

You do not actually need to create a second body but most people do automatically as it is more comfortable to have the sensation of a body around you as you travel. The form this body takes various on the individual's expectations. It may resemble a ball of energy or it may be a duplicate of your physical form.

Etheric bodies are created from etheric energy which is created by the physical body's energy centres. The body only exists for the duration of your experience and then dissolves once your focus re-centres on your physical body again.

However once you get to understand the mechanism you can also dispence with the etheric completely and project as a point of consciousness alone.
