Title: Xanth's Free 60 Page Book, “My Astral Projection Truth”
Post by: Xanth on January 25, 2011, 15:37:20
I took the liberty of compiling the posts I've written on my website into a sort of Primer on Phasing.
Basically, it's a page of ten articles I've written/posted on my website, which, when read in order should provide most of the base material you require to understand what Phasing is and how it's done.

You can download my E-Book from the below link.
http://unlimitedboundaries.ca/xanths-phasing-primer/

I'll most likely add to it as time goes on... so I can keep most of my "basic" information in a single place, easily accessible and ordered in a manner which makes knowing what to read first easier.  :)

I've further edited my eBook AND re-titled it.
In honor of Frank... and to honor the fact that I wouldn't have made the progress I have in the last 2 - 3 years if it wasn't for him, "My Astral Projection Truth" version 3 is now available for download.  :)

I'm about half way through the first document and I must say that I'm blown away! I'll be reading the rest now, and I'll definitely be trying the phasing technique now that I understand the concept. Thanks Xanth.  :-)

Well, the first document I list there is the Frank Kepple Phasing Resource, which is a compilation of Frank's work compiled by Gandalf... so I can't take much credit for that one.
It *IS* a solid piece of work though, no doubt.  :)

Hey, I had a thought yesterday thanks to Pauli...

I'd only do this if everyone thought it'd be helpful, but, would putting this in some form of e-book/pdf format make it easier to read?
While at it, I could also try expanding a bit on some of the topics?

Hey Xanth as I was trying the phasing method last night i saw a really complex figure moving behind my eyelids(in front of my eyes)!It was something like an ancient rune or something and it was glowing orange.after few seconds it drifted away from my field of vision.So what do you think it is  :?

Sounds like a Focus 12 visual of some kind.  My visuals tend to be random, colourless and shapeless forms randomly moving around.  I don't have too much experience with it being anything other than that.  I've had some flashes... but I hear that seeing objects, random or otherwise, is still a good step.

The "rune" (as you put it) could have a meaning to you... it could be just a random image.
It could have been a non-physical environment forming before your eyes.  :)

Whatever it was, I'd take it as a positive thing and keep pressing forward doing whatever it was you were doing.

I tried it lately quite a few times (Mental Rundown - a thing I had done before anyway, but only during the onset of vibes in hypnopomp state) and still keep trying.

Question: When deeper in trance but still "in the dark" I get a sudden strong falling sensation which then 'startles' me and makes me snap back into C1, more or less.

I guess this is not what the smooth transition is expected to be when doing Phasing? Is it just a 'switch' over to the chosen place / reality in Phasing? Or what does the 'transition' point 'feel' like? Can there be any energetic - or especially 'falling' sensations - involved?

That sounds like it could be the way you perceive the shift, definitely.
The more you experience it, the less "startled" you'll be by it.  Just allow it to happen.  :)

FYI, when I decide to just let a wake induced lucid dream happen without going to the trouble of lifting out for an OOBE, I get the falling sensation every time so I consider it the same thing (up, down, doesn't matter).  This morning I had one where I felt I was falling for a very long time which was new for me, but I ended up in a great place so will try this again since it removes a step and sometimes I'm lazy.

Problem is, that this 'perception' startles me in such a way that it is almost a reflex to 'snap back'. I cannot help it as much as I want to 'shift. It is a bit like the typical 'hypnic jerk' we talked about lately, only a bit longer. Yesterday, I remember, it felt rather like rising than falling. I hope I can overcome the snap-back-reflex, but it almost seems to be a mission-impossible-undertaking.

I'd like to expand upon it a bit.

If anyone can let me know if any part of it was unclear or muddled to them?
If anything in it was confusing and needs a bit more clarification?

WOW.... honestly read nearly 15 books on this art of phasing, gaining a little knowledge out of all of them to get something compact in my brain and heart about the process. Downloaded your PDF book and read it last night. BEST LAYMAN termed book yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It should be called PHASING for dummies!
Its well put together! really! wish i would have read this one first! two thumbs up!

IMHO... the problem i was having is overloading! one book was 300 pages, I speed read... so I get the info faster than most but I have to get thru the GARBAGE to find the nuggets! Yours is straight forward... NUGGET AFTER NUGGET! You know I was still trying to fill in the gaps and was checking out CHakras... BLA BLA BLA! really for the newcomer in phasing... ITS PERFECT AND GREAT STUFF!
Just write an Advanced phasing next... or intermediate phasing... dont add to this! There is enough information here to get newbies OFF THE GROUND! (wink wink!)
just one readers opinion! but read a lot of DAMN books! and still didnt have the simplicity and straight forwardness I needed! Humans complicate things! Dont over think a perfect work.

I agree completely. I'd try not to overwhelm newcomers with information or overcomplicate it like most people do. Like TravellingBull said, you could maybe add an 'advanced' section or something like that.

Here is what I read in this book (pdf) Phase made easy... Let go and focus!  U WILL PHASE SOON! I know this for fact!!!! Best Pdf for those who never have. I was a blind squirrel that found a nut! Found this book too late or would have phased earlier!


 Phase made hard!... (not in Book and should not be!!!!!!!!!!! but needed info) Staying there! HOW TO TRAIN YOUR MIND to stay in phase before slipping back to body or LD! trust me it will happen faster than anyone likes at first! There is many factors as Ryan has stated in numerous posts... FEAR is a killer! Over excitement is a killer! Lack of sleep could cause an in and out phase results multiple times a night driving you crazy (dont know why for sure! I THINK OF IT AS A BATTERY THAT'S NOT FULLY CHARGED still looking into this but over sleep seems best!)!  Info in one nice package and straight forward like the primer PDF for those who have had an exit and want to get better results and more consistency on entering the Phase. I am rolling thru books finding the common factors to produce consistency in phasing, I have another 30 books too zoom thru... I will share my results!!!!!!! but a simplistic approach as Ryan has done with the Primer Stage WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! does anyone else need info on this? or just me?  


I had to modify this thought and reiterate... a Primer is just that!!!!!! it primes you to start your phase engine per se' !!!!!!!!!!!! for lift out! ITS PERFECT Ryan! It will do just that! You will phase with practice on what is written. Staying out.... GOOD LUCK!

Amazing Xanth (just looked through your website also)!

I always had a hard time with conscious projection, only managed it once.

This sounds a lot more like me. Being an avid daydreamer it should suit me a lot more!

Xanth, thank you very much for you effort explaining to us with a lot of details the Phasing method. Your reflexions are very valuable and I really liked very much your map of consciousness. I always thought that somehow what we call imagination IS the same as the "Astral Plane" and so, to use our imagination is the same as to open a "portal" to this other focus of experience. It was very nice to read your findings about this subject.

I would like to ask you something about the "to do" of the method: I understand and also saw in your book that the art to maintain focus on the practise of notice and/or the rundown is of the ultimate importance to this practise, since our mind cannot wander at will, or we risk ourselves to lose the entire practise. So, what is your opinion about the development of the skill "concentration" as a prime skill to facilitate and improve the Phasing as a whole?

I´m back with my practises of the noticing and the rundown exercises but at some point of the experience, I think when I´m transitioning from Focus 10 to Focus 12, I just fall asleep, no matter how hard I try to maintain my focus. This happens even when I sleep for some cycles than wake up (with or without an alarm) to Phase. Sometimes I think that if I concentrate more this could be bypassed, but in the other hand I fear that using a LOT of focus will make me stare to the blackness for hours without things happening, as we know this sometimes happens with some people. I think I just have to find the middle point... but this is my current conclusion. I would appreciate very much if you can give me some advice/hint about this subject.

Thanks!

Oh it's not "my" map of consciousness.  I actually believe that you can't map consciousness... what the focus models are relevant towards is giving you a starting place to begin your own explorations.

Well, "concentration" is what you're trying to build here.  These exercises *ARE* meditations.  So you're really to treat them as such... the goal of them is to focus your attention away from the physical and your physical body, and then hold that focus.  The "holding" part is concentration/focus/whatever.

Simply put, if you find you're getting interruptions in that holding process... then you need to keep plugging away at it until you can hold that focus for extended periods of time without slipping.  This, unfortunately, takes lots of practice.

Passive observation.
This goes back to your concentration question above... what's probably happening is that you're losing focus/concentration for a split second, or maybe longer before you notice that you're not "noticing" anymore.  In that time, you fall asleep.  As I said, it just takes time and practice to hold that focus for extended periods of time.  :)

You sound like you're learning fine though.  Keep it up!  :)

Xanth, do you think any person capable of AP's would be able to successfully learn how to phase?

For many years I've only been able to AP while napping(my mind wakes up half way in the nap), but I've never been able to phase while fully conscious.  I am trying, but get as far as seeing flashes of lights,swirls and mist and that's it.  Recently when trying to phase, I actually saw an eye looking back at me.  Is this being on the right track?


Title: Re: Xanth's Phasing Primer
Post by: dreamingod on January 27, 2012, 12:42:58

Following Frank Kepple's instructions I learnt how to phase.
Initially I could only phase for short moments ~5minutes,
but after some practise my phasing experiences lasts longer and I can change scenes 3-4 times.
Two nights ago I phased for about 40 minutes before I lost awareness/recall.

Before I pursued phasing, I practised regular meditation, intended OOBEs at least twice per month (lack of opportunity due to having little ones)
and had almost nightly lucid dreaming with good recall.

From personal experiences, successful phasing occurs if you are sufficiently rested/ had enough sleep,
or else you may have short phasing experiences before losing awareness/recall.

I'm not Xanth, but I'm going to post my thoughts anyway.

Xanth, do you think any person capable of AP's would be able to successfully learn how to phase?

First, I believe that phasing is a method of astral projection, so if one is capable of phasing, one is capable of astral projecting. Second, I think any person determined enough will be able to learn how to phase if they are willing to put in the time and effort necessary to learn the skill and to practice it.

I can't say for sure about the lights/swirls/mist without knowing more details about your experience, but the eye sounds like hypnagogia/Focus 12. If so, you are definitely on the right track and should continue doing what you are doing. Just remember to be passively aware and to not react to the images and/or sounds.

Understand though, that all those ancient monks who spent a good portion of their time sitting around in basically seclusion and attempting to phase. We are talking about something that has be cut out for only masters for quite some time in human history. It is very possible to do on your lovely couch but it is far from easy.

There are a great deal more milestones that you hit with wake induced attempts. A more mature and deep F10 and F12 are musts. Much more control is needed to keep calm and continually disconnect yourself as you sink through F15. You can absolutely not think of anything relating to the physical at this point. This is so difficult. From my experience the Phase* specifically denotes the event that occurs around F21 bridge which involves you feeling like you are getting dragged upward, through your "Crown Chakra", accompanied by a "Whoooosh" sensation with very intense vibrations encompassing everything. Maintaining composure though events like this takes a boatload of practice. Nothing good comes easy.

Best of luck, I have faith in ya.


Cheers,
Contenteo

*Everything that occurs up to the "phase" in a conscious attempt is clustered into the term "Phasing". I like how Frank put it, something along the lines of "maintaining the sense of self through a conscious exit."

Post by: Shivers on February 02, 2012, 07:40:51
Ahhh I must have been confused-misread what phasing involves somewhere down the line.
I actually thought phasing was a conscious attempt (with exercises to do) rather than waking from a sleep and being thrown into an Obe. 
So phasing is whatever is done/the lead up to an Obe.

Chris- I've been laying down, getting into a deep relaxation and just noticing.  The sights/objects start appearing once I've been noticing for a little while.


Title: Re: Xanth's Phasing Primer
Post by: Xanth on February 02, 2012, 16:30:29
You can "phase" in two ways... and ironically, these are really the only two "ways" to experience the non-physical...

1.  As you put it a "conscious attempt".  Meaning you go from a completely waking state and smoothly enter the non-physical without any break in your awareness.
2.  We'll call it a "non-conscious attempt".  This means you don't go into the non-physical smoothly, there's a break in your awareness.  You become aware WHILE in the non-physical.

#1 is the holy grail type experience that most people aim for... especially new people.  It's also the hardest.
#2 are the experiences that most people "shrug off" calling them "just a dream"... which to me is a HUGE mistake.

Chris- I've been laying down, getting into a deep relaxation and just noticing.  The sights/objects start appearing once I've been noticing for a little while.

It does sound like you are shifting into Focus 12 when this happens.

I still can't say for sure, though. The reason is that the muscles around your eyes might be tensing up and putting pressure on your eyes, causing you to see phosphenes. This can look similar to what you'll see when you begin shifting into Focus 12. Again, though, I will say that this does sound like you've shifted into Focus 12.


Title: Re: Xanth's Phasing Primer
Post by: Shivers on February 03, 2012, 00:00:36
Hi Chris,  no there's no pressure with my eyes/focusing too much, if I try to focus the images disappear.  For a few years(due to stress, depression and insomnia) I somehow trained myself to just allow my mind to go completely blank for extended periods of time(even good to do at work when you're having an awful day), so it was easy as well to completely relax my eyes and view whatever popped up.

Whatever the means of achieving an AP, Maybe in the end it doesn't really matter as long as people get there in the end :)

Xanth, just read the entire thing without stoping.

I'm impressed, impressed and glad!
I've been using the noticing technique without reading about it and I always end up thinking "it feels good but whats the point? I need to climb a rope to phase!"

You destroyed some of my road bumps, that inner voice telling me I'm doing it wrong. That nagging analytical nerd inside my head. Next time I'll let go and just run with it.

Thank you for your work. I'll keep a look out on your homepage and I've followed you on fb.

All the best!

Hello Xanth,

Thank for your free ebook . It was a lot of valuable information to me , especially you described exactly the "method" I had done over the past 1.5 years ; but I didn't putting much effort into understand the "science" behind it . For example , I used the "noticing" method to transit into non-physical awareness but with slightly different ways ... Sometimes I observe the image , sometimes I just simply lie there and observe ... me / or my body "falling" asleep ... I am just passively observing my body and there boom .... I notice I am not able to move and I can induce a Sleep Paralysis right away .. This happened all naturally to me (the Sleep Paralysis) ... the thing I really struggle is the "Separation Process" ... Before that , my mind treating the concept of "Separation Process" very strictly . I thought that in order to be able to really separated , once you got out of your body , you supposed to see YOUR REAL BEDROOM ... But whenever I opened my "non-physical eyes" , the bedroom I saw never was exactly my bedroom ... For example , different ceiling , different objects at different place in the scene I had ... Back then , whenever I saw something like that , I was completely discouraged to continue and just shut my eyes off , meant that I totally shut the whole experience ! What a waste ... But then my mind had opened a bit by reading posts on Dreamviews and chatting with a Psychic Friend who helped me realizing something alot ... But when I read your book , I immediately know what I am missing now .. Because in most of my Lucid Dream , I am sure that it wasn't a "astral projection experience" yet because my Lucidity just stopped at "morning coffee awareness!" .. I just know I am dreaming , I am able to create something out of the fly , but something felt missing .... Thank you for your tips and exercises , I will practice more and improve my awareness ! :)

But something I always struggle to ask is regarding the "Dream plane" and the "Astral Plane" .... To me the Dream Plane is not just "in your head" (people can access your Dream Plane too) , but it is a "lower plane" to the Astral Plane based on the level of Awareness ? Is this true ? :D

Thank you for your book ! Hope I could learn more in this wonderful website ! :D

To me there is only consciousness... no higher or lower.  No "plane" this or "plane" that.
I don't recognize a "separate" dream plane from astral plane or whatever other planes people want to come up with.

I recognize that you're either "here" or "there".  Physical and non-physical are a matter of perspective only.
People have come up with too many rules or guidelines to explain their experiences that they've made a complete mess for themselves and have, in turn, made it really hard for beginners to learn to project.  It's a lot simpler than most people even realize... or even can allow themselves to admit.

None of these experiences we have is "in your head".  It's all experienced in consciousness...

I try to ask people to widen their grasp of what a "dream" is.  Most people hold a very narrow view of what a dream is... and if they were to really question their belief of what a dream is, they would find, a I did, that it's really based upon nothing at all.

Thank you for this ebook! It has cleared up so much misinformation. I read Monroe's books when I was like 16. My dad was into them and I would sneak them. Naturally I was confused and have had little success because I didn't really know what it was all about. Now I'm 22 and since trolling this site for a month I've had 2 waking conscious experiences and have a whole new outlook. Thank you Xanth!

Thanks for the book!

The distinction between dream, lucid and astral awareness is helpful. I've moved briefly between them and during those times I wondered if that proved it was "just a dream", so the assurance that we do move between them in any moment helps. That's pretty much what I was starting to understand anyway, that it's all about my awareness. It's always been funny to me that I usually lose some physical memories when dreaming. It kind of sounds like it's a matter of pulling the rest of myself into NP awareness, or being more fully there so I'm not all broken up with my memories left back in the physical?

What seems to help me is to listen to some soothing sound, like the ocean, and I kind of let that sound create a visual scene, and my NP eyes pop open and see something in stark detail. Sometimes I can get it to last a bit longer, such as walking out a door into a corridor, but I feel fear and snap back. I was doing this the other day briefly sitting in my car at the beach, and finally I had to roll up my windows, lock the doors, and open the sunroof so I could hear the ocean and still feel safe and protected. Still I felt vulnerable every time I heard a person or got startled by the intensity of the NP scene and snapped back.

I also get that thing where my physical eyes try to see it ant snap me back, but I'm starting to avoid that.

You mentioned there not being any such fundamental experience as a dream. I don't know exactly what you meant, but it got me thinking that our society dismisses things as "Just" a dream, when it's so strange that there would be any such lucid experiences where the mind isn't just thinking but actually fashions a whole fantasy reality to walk around in that seems real, for no purpose at all. It would make more sense that there actually is something there that it's touching on and having some kind of awareness of, or creating.

I'm checking out some of Frank Kepple's stuff.

I share with you the quote to two posts on a topic on The Astral Pulse where I've shared some ideas that might provide additional help to those who read Mr. Ryan Tasker's Great Book "My Astral Projection Truth - What Is Astral Projection And How To Do It!".

...

As I mentioned to Mr. Ryan Tasker, what's contained in his Great Book "My Astral Projection Truth - What Is Astral Projection And How To Do It!", listed as number 5 in the List, which he so Generously shared for FREE, the methods that he mentions in his book need to be combined (in my opinion and according to my experience) with the WBTB (Wake Back To Bed) methodology in order for them to work (at least for not so natural/easy Astral Projectors /Lucid Dreamers), as for what you'll read in Dr Rory Mac Sweeney's book the WBTB process produces/activates in a natural way in the Brain the chemical processes that are required for acquiring/triggering Lucidity during a normal Dream, which triggers the start of a Lucid Dream (/Astral Projection). This also applies to the instructions contained in the Topic "The Astral Blueprint (http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness/the_astral_blueprint-t38729.0.html)" of The Astral Pulse forums.

...

...

When performing the WBTB (Wake Back To Bed) method, is NOT necessary to stay awake for a long time (generally will take around 30 minutes or even less, depending if wanting to achieve a DILD Dream Initiated Lucid Dream or a WILD Wake Initiated Lucid Dream, and in some cases a little more as everybody is different, but it should be less than 1 hour as the body is supposedly tired as it's at the early morning and 2 or 3 more sleep cycles should be sleep), as the body and brain will fall asleep (in all cases even if a thread of consciousness/awareness seems to be present, but is not like that as the brain falls asleep as well as the body and only if it falls asleep after the body is that you hear your body snore but eventually the brain and mind gets asleep), and then, the Brain chemistry that has been activated by trying to keep slightly awake (during the return to sleep when you make an effort and try to keep a thread of consciousness that WILL eventually fall ASLEEP) and also for the time awaken during the WBTB (going to the bathroom, drinking a little of water, and reading a book with light low or in an electronic tablet with low light in the screen, but NEVER eating food and NEVER seeing Television and NEVER turning lights on as that affects the process) causes the sudden trigger/activation of awareness/lucidity/consciousness as a result of that brain chemistry being activated (but is important not activate it much Not to cause insomnia), as somehow the activation of the lucidity/awareness has been BY DESIGN tied to the brain chemistry functions that normally DRUG and turn off the Memory Functions when the body and brain are sleeping (and activate them when the body and brain are awake during waking activities) and that as a result of the WBTB method is "forced" into working in a different way by helping with the proper brain chemistry resultant of the WBTB to induce the trigger/activation of the Critical and Memory Functions of the brain causing/helping/assisting consciousness into acquiring/regaining Lucidity/Awareness. READ THE BOOKS as many of this it's explained in Detail in some of them. Below there is a link to some additional information and analysis regarding the WBTB method/process, as IT IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS TO ACHIEVE LUCID DREAMING (ASTRAL PROJECTION) at night, and it's same logic applies to those who practice naps (at 2 or 3 PM when some REM cycles occur in the brain) with a certain amount of tiredness with the difference that there is not need to previous sleep as the REM cycles happening at that hour and the necessary tiredness help in the process (those who practice it that way are the ones who know it, I mostly know about the process at night with the WBTB and can confirm that IS EFFECTIVE/EFFICACIOUS, but must me mentioned that naps affect the WBTB when practiced in the same day/night as they alter the sleep cycles of that same night, but everyone should experience with that and find what works for each one).

Hello All,

I have downloaded and read the book and it is really good. Although (maybe because of linguistic reasons, I am Hungarian) I find it quite difficult to get to Focus 12. I am sure something is not quite right wih the mental aspect of the process, with the recognition part, the mental deepening. Physically I think I can relax myself quite efficiently.  Are there any updates/breakouts since it was done regarding what I have written here. Thanks in advance :)

I have found two sure fire ways to get to what people call Focus 12 or the void rather quickly. One is too completely disassociate yourself from your physical body. The other is to learn how to see with your "Mind's eye" instead of your physical eyes.
 
 The first one "disassociation" can be done in a number visualize yourself "unzipping" your Human suit. You can use affirmations. Any kind of focus that shows that you are "leaving" your physical vessel will work. You can't look back though until you get better with this practice. That requires the ability to hold a "dual focus", which is quite challenging. In the beginning, you need to bite in like a Pitbull and don't let go until you are ready to return.

 The second one, seeing with the Mind's eye happens when You fight the urge to readjust your eyes while you are noticing. It's hard to explain, but during the "noticing" the darkness before your eyes, you will experience a impulse to readjust your vison. After you have fought that urge and stayed the course, of noticing in this case, you will find that the darkness you are seeing, has taken on a deeper level of depth. Hence the term associated with Focus 12, "3D darkness or the "void".

Thanks! I think the second one would be more appealing for me. So what you basically saying by fighting the urge to readjust our eyes equals with trying to keep our eyes completely still during the whole time?
Once when I practiced Zhan Zhuang (Tree stance in internal martial arts) - I tried to watch at one direction without even blinking for long minutes. The whole landscape started to be a mess after about 2-3 minutes, I wonder what would happen if we tried to phase out with open eyes?

It's a challenge to do, but like everything else in this practice, it gets easier with time. While Phasing when I fight the urge successfully, I immediately get the first real "pull" or should I say "evidence" of a shift occurring.

Phasing with open eyes is known as "Scrying". I was a practitioner of that years ago as well. That's what was likely that taught me the "discipline" to be able to do it still today.

 One very important thing that all forms of Martial Arts teach is "mental discipline". Being able to learn to control "yourself" in any situation is always beneficial to your well being!  :-)

wow and WOW! Scrying? Can you provide any material(s) about Scrying? It is the first time I even hear about this and tbh I a little bit regretted that I asked about it right after as I thought it might have been taken as a joke (though I was very serious.) So it exists! I'll search Scrying here too. What are your experiences with it? Is there a reason you only practiced it in the past? Of course only reply if it's not of a private matter.
Yes, Martial Arts teach mental discipline in a very unique way. Maybe I should just implement that kind of attention into phasing, thanks for the hint :)
Cheers

" From Wikipedia:
 Scrying, also known by various names such as "seeing" or "peeping", is the practice of looking into a suitable medium in the hope of detecting significant messages or visions. The objective might be personal guidance, prophecy, revelation, or inspiration, but down the ages, scrying in various forms also has been a prominent means of divination or fortune-telling.[1] It remains popular in occult circles, discussed in many media, both modern and centuries old."
 
  Scrying can be done using a black mirror,  Crystal ball, even a bowl of water or oil. I used a black mirror. Nostradamus was known to use a bowl of clear water and what he called his "Magick Mirror".
 I guess it was one of the pieces of the puzzle/pathway that led me to my current practice here with Phasing. The only difference I see now is that with Phasing, my eyes are closed.

Thanks for that! MAybe with a black mirror, the technique could be a bit easier with open eyes, and then if success comes, that will improve phasing too. I'll def try this out

Actually, I found Scrying more difficult to do. Simply because you use a candle in the dark, so that you can kind of blank out any kind of distractions that were around you. It did teach me how to "hold" my focus on a singular target for a lengthy period of time. So, yes, it was beneficial.

For me, at the current period, phasing is really hard because I cannot really seem to know if I should "see" or imagine the actual images that would deepen my state of consciousness and I get confused during the process. I presume, scrying would be more evidential in a way of how the experience comes, I hope I am clear on this. Maybe I shouldn't try to distinguish this, just try to see further in the dark?

The thread has a link to a Hans Zimmer ost collection. There are various binaural beats/Blisscoded sounds/ etc to help/induce, but more "commercial" music could help in phasing too? Do you have any experience with this? As a musician and someone who really loves music, I might use it if it is recommended. Thanks :)

Again, replying for Lumaza because he is currently offline-

Depending on just where you are in your individual development, music may work to enhance your experience or it may not. The answer is to give it a try.

I was at The Monroe Institute early this year and the first couple days I was getting nowhere and becoming very frustrated. Then in one session, they had a background music track that just seemed to transport me into a new realm, I had a fantastic flight through surreal landscapes. I came away from that session thinking that music was the answer to my difficulty before. But the next session that we had music, I got nothing! Very disappointing!

So the lesson for me was that what works one moment may not necessarily work the next, for a variety of possible reasons, which I still have not fully come to understand. Lol. You keep trying different things.

I’m still trying to digest all this information as most things that I’ve researched on astral projection don’t even mention anything about the different types of awarenesses. I’m glad I came across your Ebook. I used to meditate and the longer I would spend meditating the more I would find myself being more drawn into the void, I would go deeper and deeper. By reading your book it sounds like I was sort of unintentionally trying to Phase.

They're not really surprising when you look at them from the perspective that most of what people THINK they know about projection started with Robert Monroe... and in the time between his first book to his third and final book, even his beliefs changed in huge ways.  I just took those beliefs and drew them out to their inevitable conclusion.  Robert Monroe was ALMOST there... I took it the rest of the way.  I have no doubt that he would have eventually came to the same conclusions as I.  Read his third book if you haven't already.

Quote
So are projections just dreams but with astral awareness?
Yes, however, I would flip that slightly.  Astral Awareness is a dream (non-physical experience) where you're as aware as you are right now while reading this.
I use the label "dream" there though, yet the understanding needs to be made that we humans have NO IDEA what a "dream" actually is.

Within the framework of my book and my experiences, I can tell you that what we call a "dream" simply doesn't exist.  A dream is no different than the physical reality experience you're having right this very second, you're just unaware of that fact while you're experiencing it.  So then, by extension, what people call an "Astral Projection" is also no different from this waking physical reality, you're fully aware.

That brings me to this physical reality experience... it's a projection as well, no different from any astral projection you have.  We experience it in a more stable way because there is more than just you experiencing this reality.  It's a conglomerate of the experiences of all the conscious entities (you, me and everyone/thing else) combined and stays existing simply because of the number of entities creating and sustaining it.
If all conscious entities were to leave this physical reality, this reality would cease to exist.  This reality is simply one in an infinite number of realities.  Some physical, some not physical, some incomprehensible while we're in this physical form, because you can only experience something from within the confines of your current understanding and experiences.  This is the subjective nature of our experiences.

Quote
I’m still trying to digest all this information as most things that I’ve researched on astral projection don’t even mention anything about the different types of awarenesses.
And they won't because most people learn what I would call the "Classical" view of projection and consciousness, which is seriously lacking.
