I guess there isn’t too much to post about lately, so I’ll just write about my two previous phasing practice sessions.
The recent one was last night an hour before I went to my Yoshinkan Aikido class. I sat down on my recliner couch, put my iPod earbuds in and started listening to one of my hemi-sync songs. I think I was listening to “Touching Grace”. Anyway, I started to relax… I generally work on my face first, I find that I hold a lot of muscle tension around my ears and cheekbones. My body tends to relax very quickly now-a-days, so I don’t usually do a progressive relaxation method on that part of me. It’s just my face I find most difficult.
When my face was relaxed, this includes my eyes now (which is a change I started just recently as I never did the eye relaxation thing before), which I’m finding to be a great thing to do in order to “passively observe”. I started my “Fixated Staring” routine as noted in my previous post (Xanth’s Phasing Method) and began slipping very quickly into Focus 3 (Monroe model)… and within 8 – 10 minutes Focus 10 followed. When I felt the Focus 10 state sink in, I started my Noticing exercise. So I was staring at the blackness behind my closed eyes, noticing what’s going on… and then I feel what can really best be described as an “expanded awareness/consciousness”. I really do feel EXPANDED… then the visuals kick on and I’m now staring at floating formless colour clouds in front of me. I never made it to Focus 21 this time, but I did come to the conclusion that Focus 12 is now always within my reach and truly is easy to get to once you’ve done it once and realize it.
The practice session before that one also went just like that… except I think I was in my bedroom at the time sitting on my bed. It took slightly longer to hit Focus 12, but I did get there. It’s really something you need to stumble into once, then it should be easy to get to from then on out… with just a bit less effort each time.
So that’s really all I have to say right now… I just wanted to relay those experiences out there. Hopefully reading it might give you some glimpse into a point you’re at where you’re stuck.
