What is phasing?

Have heard a lot about this method. I am puzzled somewhat at the basics of it as some say you visualize something then phase into it then others say you just look into darkness of closed eyes and think of nothing then random stuff will pop up which if you try hard enough you can phase into.

What's the correct way? what's the most effective method of this pls. Try and answer only if your experienced with this technique and try give a brief lowdown of your phasing technique ty.

Hmm, I have always used the word 'phasing' in two different ways. Everybody I know uses different names for it, though, and some even rely quite heavily on descriptions from popular culture that encompass what they have experienced. You probably won't get two answers that are exactly the same when you pose this question, because the terminology is still pretty undecided. Let me tell you what I think and then you can decide if it fits what you have described to us, okay?

One of the meanings of the word phasing relates to shapeshifting and is mostly used to describe the process your astral form undergoes when it changes its shape. The process of this shift from one form into the other is called 'phasing' by some. The most common shifts are human to animal and human to human, which might best be described as altering your appearance so that you appear as somebody/something else in certain situations on the astral. Some of us retain certain characteristics and mannerisms of the beings we frequently 'phase' into even when we are not travelling astrally.

The other, more known way to describe phasing when it comes to astral travel is a bit more complicated. I have always said that one of the phasing-things (the most famous of the lot!) is like you're building a gate between your current location and the place you want to be in. This works much like visualisation does, but with the difference that you can actually get a pretty quick result this way. What happens is the following.. you are in one place on the astral, but want to travel to another place.. instead of walking/cycling/driving/whatever, all you have to do is think of the place you want to go to.. what does it smell like, feel like, what can you feel beneath your feet, what does the place look like, what buildings are there, are there other people?.. and you're guaranteed to end up in that exact location when all your senses know what the place is like. Takes a lot of practice, though, but it's guaranteed fun.

Another form of phasing in terms of astral travel is the involuntary phasing. That happens when you get a bit overexcited, or maybe angry, or insecure. Overexcitement can, literally, make you fly so high up that you can't see anything but clear sky.. anger can make you wear an armour, or wield a sword or whatever strikes your fancy.. insecure can mean that the world around you continually shifts very rapidly in form and texture and whatever until you've decided upon where you'd like to be. These are just a few examples of involuntary phasing, which are all illustrated by a significant lack of control over yourself. Not to say that you should discard your emotions entirely during such a journey, but keeping a leash on them so that they remain in check would be much better.

I hope I didn't puzzle you further with this post, though!

Hi Karnov and all

As I believe, it was Robert Monroe who first used the term 'phasing'.

Of course, over the years it has been misinterpreted, butchered and used to suit everyone's experiences/beliefs.

However, here is a nice discipline about it...

A lot of people I know use the term "Phase" or "Phasing" as the act of manipulating your own, and the energy around you to physically become, or pass through, a solid object.

I've yet to see a proper Phasing.

Apparently it's a dangerous thing to learn or even attempt.

I suppose Phasing could include an object that isn't solid either. Like a thought or an emotion.

Thx for your replies but I was thinking more of phasing as a technique to actually exit your physical body. Anyone know about this kind in particular?

Give my posts here a read: http://unlimitedboundaries.ca/tag/phasing/

I'm a big fan of Robert Monroe (who coined the term and method for Phasing) and Frank Kepple (listed above, from the astral pulse) who made the method more widely available to people.

There's nothing dangerous about Phasing. It's just another way to project... you end up in the SAME PLACE as classic OBEs and other forms that end in astral projection. It's just that Monroe and Kepple labeled these areas more precisely than most "old world mystics" did. And they did so being more modern and slightly more scientifically.

If you have any direct questions about Phasing, let me know... I'll do my best to answer them for you.

This has answered a question about a dream I had recently - that I think was part lucid as I was aware that I was dreaming and it wasn't real. Thanks for sharing!

Briefly, "phasing" is a view of projection that doesn't think of traveling to a different 'place' but shifting one's awareness to a different vibrational frequency.

This shifting is not dangerous. In fact we do it all the time unconsciously, even in going to sleep.

The opportunity is there to develop our awareness and the ability to shift our attention and energy at will... which is quite masterful.

Very well put Xan. :)

You're right, it's the same process we go through each and every night that we fall asleep and have normal dreams... except the "fall asleep" part is done consciously.

Actually, people also refer to it as a "WILD". But it's very much Phasing.
Robert Monroe coined the term. It's the act of turning your "focus of awareness" away from this physical reality and turning it towards the non-physical realities.

I think it's good to have a firm understanding of Robert Monroe's Focus Levels too.
I'll share with you guys the method I've been using lately to do it.

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.
