Xanth’s Phasing Method

I posted this in my last article I wrote where I focused on a couple posts from the Astral Pulse, but I thought that it’d be nice to get it down separately and with a bit more detail.  So, what follows is my current Phasing method which has been giving me a lot of success as of late.

What I’ve been doing lately has been a slight combination of a few methods, rolled up into something that has been really easy for me to do.  Doing this takes me, pretty quickly, through Focus 10 into Focus 12… my sticking point right now is the transition from Focus 12 to Focus 21.

Anyway, let’s get into what I do!
I’ll type up a quick overview, then go through each step in more detail.:

  1. Stretch your eyes out… close them really tightly for a few seconds.  Do this a few times.  Then rotate them around several times, making sure they’re completely stretched out… I’ll give them a good rub too.
  2. Close eyes, fixate upon a spot in the blackness directly in front of you and visualize something at the spot to help hold your focus there, I use a spinning vortex.
  3. Start your relaxation process.
  4. As you’re relaxing, move that spot you’re fixating on slowly upwards as high as you can comfortably go without straining your eyes.
  5. When your eyes have gone as upwards as they’ll go, you’ll hopefully also be fully relaxed at this point, you should be in Focus 10 at this point… to shift to Focus 12, begin the “Noticing” exercise.
  6. Should you begin to see floating, formless shapeless blobs in front where you’re fixated, this signifies you’re now in Focus 12.
  7. Keep “Noticing” the formless shapes floating around and eventually, without trying (just allow this next part to happen), you should find yourself engulfed within the 3D Blackness of Focus 21.

Ok, so let’s drop into more detail!
Lately, I’ve been listening to some hemi-sync MP3’s that I bought off the TMI webstore.  Stuff like “Dreamseed”, “Touching Grace” and “Voyage to the Other Side”.  Actually those are the only three I have, I cycle through them quite often.

The first thing I do is stretch out my eyes… this helps to relax them and allows them to stay closed easier.  I’ll do this by closing them tight for a few seconds, then release.  Do that a few times.  Then rotate your eyes around in whatever direction you wish.  But try to stretch them as far out in each direction as you can.

Now after my eyes are stretched out nicely (they should feel a lot more relaxed at this point), I close my eyes and fixate on a single point directly in front of me.  I visualize a small spinning vortex at that point to draw my gaze into it.  You can use whatever you want.  I use this time to begin to relax my body… I used to have to use a progressive relaxation technique, but lately I’ve been able to bypass that and start moving directly into a fully relaxed state.  So, if you can’t do this, feel free to use whatever method you want to achieve your relaxed state.

Now, throughout this relaxation phase, I’ll really slowly shift that point I’m fixated on upwards in small increments.  This has two effects… first it locks the eyelids shut and secondly, for some reason it assists the action of phasing (perhaps it’s just me, but try it anyway).  I find I have to find a new point to fixate upon which is slightly higher than the last one each time.  Just remember to continue your fixation visualization each time (in my case, the spinning vortex).

Try to coincide your finished relaxed state with your eyes reaching as comfortably high as they’ll go.  At this point, hopefully, you should be in Focus 10.  You’ll know by the greatly reduced bodily sensations and a general sense of relax and calmness about you.  I want to point out here that your body WILL NOT be asleep at this point… and really, it never will.  You’ll simply be disassociating your focus from everything physical.  I can put it this way… at this point, your focus will be roughly only 20% in the physical and 80% within the non-physical at this time.

From here, we’ll start Franks “Noticing” exercise.  You’re going to continue fixating on the point that you’ve been using… and you’re going to just “notice” and passively observe what’s going on in your field of view.  It’ll start with blackness, or you might, right away, start to see abstract shadows and areas within your field of view that will begin to shift and move around… keep “noticing” these things.  The more you “notice” this stuff occurring in front of you, the deeper you’ll shift your focus into it and the more you’ll remove your focus from the physical.  When this happens, you’ll roughly be 10% in the physical and 90% in the non-physical.

Now, there will come a point when you’ll feel a shift… and you might find yourself within a scene or some kind, or floating in what’s best described as a 3D Blackness.  When this happens, try to remain passively observing… you’re now in Focus 21.  Congrats, you’ve now phased your consciousness as close to 100% as you can go.  You still might retain some sensations of the physical, but that’s normal.  🙂

    Hi,
    You remind me of myself, with the Phasing. For years I called it Meditation, actualy still do. I do the same process and also listen to the Hemi-sync metamusic cds. I beleive this is the most simplest and best way to exsplore non-physical realty. Also, Love your web site! keep it up!

    Hi,
    I was just wondering how quickly you can reach the floating blobs part? I can usually reach it quickly, sometimes without even being relaxed…

      Hi Daniel,

      Focus 12? Generally, 10 – 15 minutes… sometimes a bit less, sometimes a bit more, but on average, 10 – 15 minutes.
      If for some reason I haven’t hit Focus 12 within 20 – 30 minutes, I generally won’t, and then I just go and do something else.

      And yeah… I’ve noticed that actual relaxation seems to be a secondary to actually just “letting go” and “allowing” it to happen.

    Hej, I’m ever so pleased to have come across your site. You are the first person I meet (virtually in this case) who calls what I do “phasing” and explains it very similarly. I’ve been doing this since I was a small child, since it is, of course, a natural installation within the human soul.
    I’ve early this year pinned it down on my “private” dream blog, if you fancy a read: http://avalondove.blogspot.com/p/dark-hall-of-voices.html

    I added you to my linklist on both my blogs.

    All the best and happy journeying,
    Defer

    Phasing=involution=meditation. The active noticing is what takes you deeper inside. Stillness and connection experiences land in the same way as crossing into the focus levels.

    Thanks for the website!

    This is amazing – I found when i was younger (14-15y/o) that the best way for me to meditate was to close my eyes and look up into my third eye – this has confirmed for me that this is a thing! Looking forward to reading more about these techniques.

      Hi Sharni!

      I know I haven’t posted much over the last few years, but I’m still here if you (or anyone else) has any questions. 🙂

        i could use some help with this phasing i have never been in the 3D darkness but instead i just start seeing myself doing things like even just looking on my phone and scrolling through it I haven’t ever seen what’s on my screen it’s almost like my eyes are out of focus unless i kinda focus but just let go at the same time but i just end up getting lost and either fall asleep or wake myself up i have tried astral projecting for months i tried the rope technique but i could never have any luck when it comes to having to visualize stuff like that or the technique where you imagine yourself moving your arms and slowly start to move other parts of your body until you can just exit your body i have troubles being able to just lay there in bed when nothing is happening because the longer nothing happens the less motivated i get and now with all these months and no successful projection its so hard to stay motivated to do it so i could use as much help as possible to do this its important that i learn to AP
        sorry if this is confusing i just haven’t had anyone reply to me on reddit with helpful info and its all the same thing one says not to move and stay still the other says its ok to move and i also get muscle twitches that get in the way of me being able to relax because i can always feel them i could probably ignore it if its the itches people say happen but i dont get those so i dont know if the twitches are my version of having itches but its getting really frustrating not knowing what to do or how to do this.

          Hey Angelo!

          Well, you’re definitely on the right track. Those points where you find yourself “looking on my phone”, realize that you HAVE phased.
          You’re just not consciously aware of it at the time and when you do realize it, that realization bounces you back to your physical perspective.

          It’s frustrating to say the least. What I feel you should work on is meditate. Just meditate for a bit. What you want to become comfortable with is the intense joy found in being quiet.
          That way, even if you don’t phase, you still have had an extremely relaxing experience. That also takes the “stress” out of the equation.

          After that, I’d suggest the noticing exercise first. You can find that on the same page as my phasing method. 🙂

          Let me know if you have anymore questions!
