QuoteHow do you shift the focus to the right side of the brain? You don't. It just comes to you in the waking state and a "translation" is often attempted in the left side. I think in dreams, however, is when you are mostly focused on the right side.I say just dreams and don't include lucid dreams/2nd phase because in the latter is when we start using our left side more as we try to make sense of the environments and they adopt forms more true to life. Here's something interesting about split-brain patients (corpus callosum is severed usually to treat epilepsy):"Split-brain patients have also taught us about dreaming. Scientists had hypothesized that dreaming is a right hemisphere activity, but they found that split brain patients do report dreaming. They found, therefore, that the left hemisphere must have some access to dream material. What was most interesting was the actual content of the dreams of the split-brain patients. Klaus Hoppe, a psychoanalyst, analyzed the dreams of twelve patients. He found that the dreams were not like the dreams of most normal people. " The content of the dreams reflected reality, affect, and drives. even in the more elaborate dream, there was a remarkable lack of distortion of latent dream thoughts. The findings show that the left hemisphere alone is able to produce dreams...Patients after commisurotomy reveal a paucity of dreams, fantasies, and symbols. Their dreams lack the characteristics of dream work; their fantasies are unimaginative, utilitarian, and tied to reality; their symbolization is concretistic, discursive, and rigid."

QuoteThe more I've learned, the less safe I feel this method is. Traditional OBE techniques throw you out of your body with no personal preparation which forces many people into hellish realms (manifestations of their own inner turmoil).
QuoteOne more thing, for those of you seeking a modern OBE interpretation and technique, this book is not for you. In this book you will find a very serious (but light-hearted) guide to the otherworlds and the people who walk between them. There are over 20 practical exercises and if you stick to it you will learn to AP by reading this book. But more than that, you will be reconnected with the old religion that first began journeys between worlds. You will be taken through a progressive journey that starts with visualization journeys and that eventually progress into full phasing experiences. More than that, following the practices in this book will provide what many of you seek, a spiritual experience in the otherworlds. There have always been posts on this forum to the effect of "how can i have more spiritual experiences OOB?", and this book provides you with that. You will learn what your personal myth is, your life's narrative and the themes of your life. You will meet guides, gather your seal/totem that will be your passport between worlds, meet ancestral energies, and whatever else you want to do. Bottom line, if you are really serious about AP being your chosen spiritual path, then this book is for you. If you can look past the Celtic/British Paganism, there are jewels here that are invaluable and in my opinion, this book should be required reading for any serious AP student.
