Deepening. Do it everytime in the Phase (LD/OBE)

Deepening refers to techniques that induce realistic perception and awareness in the phase state(obe, lucid).

PRIMARY DEEPENING TECHNIQUES

The goal of primary deepening is to achieve complete separation from the body, allowing further actions within the phase. Primary deepening entails achieving two principal objectives: complete separation from the physical body and anchoring the perceived body within the phase space.

When separation from the body occurs through the use of a separation technique, a posture must be assumed that completely different from the posture of the real, physical body. The greater the degree of postural similarity between the physical and perceived bodies, the more shallow and brief the phase will be. For example, in the case of horizontal levitation, a 180′ turn must immediately performed, arms and legs spread, adopting a vertical posture. Under no circumstances should a practitioner in the phase remain in a posture identical to that of the physical body.

If a practitioner is pulled back toward the body after separation, anchoring should be initiated that facilitates standing or sitting in the phase. Resisting the gravity of the physical body is paramount to remaining in the phase. The result of willful resistance is directly proportional to the degree of applied effort. It will help to grab hold of surrounding objects and hold on to them; any means of anchoring the perceived body within the phase are appropriate. It is possible to start rotating around an axis; not simply imagining the rotation, but performing it with the perceived body as well.



DEEPENING THROUGH SENSORY AMPLIFICATION

The more a phase is experienced by the sensory faculties, the deeper and longer the phase will be. Sensory amplification in the phase is the most effective deepening technique precisely because it allows the activation of primary internal sensations during the transition from reality to the phase. There are several ways to perform sensory amplification.

Palpation is the first deepening technique that should be recalled when entering the phase.

Vision may be absent at the beginning of a phase experience, but the sensation of occupying a defined space is almost always present. In the case of a completely absent sense of sight, only tactile-kinesthetic perception is possible. That is, movement throughout a space and the touching objects there is the only option when vision is absent. The sense of touch plays a key role in the perception of everyday reality. Accordingly, if the sense of touch is actively used in the phase space, it is only natural that the phase will deepen and reach its maximum potential.

Palpation is performed by fleetingly touching anything that may be found in the immediate surroundings. This should be done by quickly but carefully perceiving the feel of surfaces and shapes. Hands should not remain on a particular place for more than one second, remaining constantly in motion to locate new objects. The goal of palpation is to touch and also to learn something about encountered objects or shapes. For example, if one feels a mug, one may touch it not only from the outside, but also from the inside. Once a practitioner has rolled out of the body, the bed may be touched; the physical body lying in bed may be touched, as well as the floor, the carpet, nearby walls, or a bedside table.

Another palpation technique is performed by rubbing the palms against each other as if trying to warm them on a cold day. Blowing on the palms also produces sensations that will help deepen the phase. Since tactile perception of the world is not limited to the palms, the hands should be moved over the entire body while in the phase to excite and fully activate the sense of touch.

As soon as palpation begins, the feeling that the phase is deepening and becoming fixed soon follows. Usually, it takes five to 10 seconds of palpation exercises to reach the maximum level of deepening. After performing this technique, the pseudo-physical sensations will be indistinguishable from those of everyday reality. If vision is absent on phase entry, it quickly emerges during palpation.

Peering is the primary technical variation of sensory amplification. However, it is not always initially accessible since it requires vision, which may begin as absent in the phase. Once vision appears or has been created using special techniques (see Chapter 8), peering may begin. The effectiveness of this technique originates in the fact that vision is the human’s primary instrument of perception. Therefore, by exciting vision to its maximum potential within the phase, it is possible to attain a fully immersive phase state that is completely apart from normal reality.

Peering should be done at a distance of four to six inches from objects within the phase. A practitioner should glance over the minute details of objects and surfaces to bring definition to the phase space while increasing the quality of vision. When looking at hands, the lines of the palm or the fingernail and cuticles should be examined. If observing a wall, study the texture of its wallpaper. When looking at a mug, one should look carefully at its handle, the curve of its rim, or any inscriptions. Attention should not remain on one area of an object for more than half a second. Active observation should constantly move to new objects and their minute details, approaching objects or picking them up to draw them nearer. It’s best when objects near one another; otherwise, too much time is spent moving around.

Peering brings quick and clear results. Usually, if vision is blurry and there is a yearning to return into the physical body, with just 3-10 seconds of peering all of this will be gone without a trace. After peering, vision adjusts as quickly and clearly as if a camera lens was correctly installed in front of the eyes, capturing the image in the sharpest of focus.

Simultaneous peering and palpation provide the maximum possible deepening effect in the phase. This method of sensory amplification engages the two most important perceptive, thus the effect is twice greater than when the two actions are separately performed. If vision is present in the phase, simultaneous peering and palpation is an absolute necessity because it facilitates good phase depth in the quickest and simplest manner.

The combination of palpation and peering must not only be performed simultaneously, but also upon the same objects. For example, while a practitioner may look at the hands and simultaneously rub them against each other; or while looking at a coffee mug, all of its parts may be observed and touched at the same. It is necessary to maintain dynamism of action, remembering that feelings should be experienced not half-heartedly, remembering that full concentration on sensory amplification is an excellent means to a deep, quality phase.



SECONDARY DEEPENING TECHNIQUES

Diving Headfirst

Diving headfirst is used if sensory amplification techniques do not work, or when the practitioner in the phase is located in an undefined space where there is nothing to touch or look at. This technique works thanks to the unusual vestibular sensations that it causes, which help to enhance perception. This technique is performed with the eyes shut if vision is available and the practitioner literally dives headfirst into the floor or space at the feet. A feeling of movement away from the physical body will immediately arise during the flight down, and the dive itself will be experienced as if it is really happening. Simultaneously, the surrounding space may darken and become colder. Agitation or fear may also appear. After five to 15 seconds of flight, the practitioner is either arrives in an undetermined place in the phase or hits a dead end, like a wall. In the case of a dead end, a translocation technique should be used. Translocation may also be attempted if deepening does not occur during the flight, if sense perception stops improving, or if a good degree of realism has already been achieved. An alternative to the translocation technique: hold the hands about four to six inches in front of the face and try to observe them without opening the eyes; this will move the practitioner to another random location.

When falling headfirst, do not think about the floor; assume that it will be penetrated. This very effective if the phase has not reached a fullness of depth.

A desire to not simply fall down observing one’s perceptions, but instead race swiftly downward while trying to move away from the body is extremely important. In case of failure to do so, instead of deepening, such a fall may lead to a return to the state of being awake, i.e. to a foul.

Vibration

Like falling headfirst, the vibration technique should be used if sensory amplification techniques do not work, or when the practitioner in the phase is located in an undefined space where there is nothing to touch or look at. This technique works thanks to the unusual vestibular sensations that it causes, which help to enhance perception.

After separating from the body, it is normally quite easy to create vibrations by thinking about them, by straining the brain, or by straining the body without using muscles. The occurrence of vibrations provides a significant opportunity to deepen the phase. An advantage of this technique is that it does not require any preliminary actions and thus may be practiced at any moment.

The brain is strained to the maximum extent possible, which cause vibrations that may be intensified and managed through spasmodic or prolonged straining.

If this technique does not produce deepening after five to 10 seconds, the technique has to be changed or action should be taken at the practitioner’s current depth in the phase.

Aggressive Action

This technique may be used as an alternative to any other deepening technique since it can be used at any moment. Practicing this technique only requires aggressive action of the perceived body. A practitioner may run, roll on the floor, perform gymnastics, or move the arms and legs. Maximum activity and aggression are paramount to the successful use of this technique.

If the practitioner is stuck in a dark space, waving the arms and legs from side to side is appropriate. If the practitioner is in water, swimming with determined, powerful strokes would be suitable recourse. The type of action very much depends on the specific situation along with an aggressive desire on the part of the practitioner.

As a rule, the effect of such movements and relocations comes quite quickly, especially if attention is focused on all the accompanying sensations.

Imagining reality

This interesting technique should be used by experienced practitioners, or if all other deepening techniques fail.

A practitioner aggressively imagines being located in the physical world, experiencing its intrinsic reality of perception, and not in the phase. This should be done while in a state of separation from the body with a sense of vision present. If successful, the surrounding phase space will immediately brighten and sensory perception of the phase will exceed the normal experience of reality.

If this technique produces no clear results after a few seconds, another technique should be used.

Re: Deepening. Do it everytime in the Phase(lucid + obe)

As a person who practices OBEs I’d like to share with you my opinion concerning deepening.
    If you have some experience in OBEs you may enlarge the list of your deepening techniques. From my personal experience I found for myself that standing in the centre of the snowfall (or rain) deepens me. You should not just stand and watch, you should involve  each part  of your body into the process and make it feel cold and fluffy snowflakes (or drops of rain) tickling your skin. The strong wind also makes my OBEs not only deep, but  realistic to such extent  that I’m ready to squeal from delight. The deepest feeling of reality was achieved when my hair  fluttered on the wind. Another way of deepening is to make the top of your head stick to the ceiling like a magnet. Concentrating for some seconds on the top of your head in such position can make your further experience deep as I noticed. But the most important thing that I extracted from my OBEs  is the fact that I constantly need a change of techniques. When someone uses a technique for a long period of time there can be adaptation and the technique can be applied automatically without clear and bright perception.  One shouldn’t be afraid to use some new techniques or adapt the old ones for himself according to his preferences.

Yes, the primary thing in deepening is your perceptions. As I see it now there are three basic deepening principles: based on perception, based on intention and based on emotions. 

How long you can be in the phase state usually? Did you try to count seconds?

Perfectly right Michael except you forgot one major subject; Perception is how we understand/sense the reality. Intention is how we travel through the reality or manipulate it. Emotion is experiencing the reality and making it a part of us. What was forgotten? MEMORY. Without memory of what we experience inside the reality, there is no proof of it ever happening, or anything at all happening for that matter, as it is based on personal experience.

Therefore in my experience, developing an individuals memory, and dream-recall skills will enhance the amount of projections, the intensity, vividness, etc.

This is a HUGE part I feel you missed out on, and I believe that it is something we should talk about if you have not already written a section about this subject.

Always remember this fact; 'You' are the sum of your experience, but you have never experienced something if you can not remember EXACTLY what it is you experienced.

I totally didn't get that.

You' are the sum of your experience, but you have never experienced something if you can not remember EXACTLY what it is you experienced.


Well, I was drunk another day and I can't remember how i got home. So, I didn't get home?

Phasing101, if you mean intention to be deep in the phase and recalling the state to get it, you're right. But this advice isn't for novices

I meant the way that it works; Intention - is the act of choosing to do something, weighing the options and then using your willpower or will of intent, to then exact what you have chosen to do.

Emotion - is the act of your mind processing what it perceives. This has been a topic of Philosophy for centuries. Hence it is the basis of memory. Which is why an emotional or life-changing event stays with your memory better after you finish projecting.

Memory - when a novice is concerned, memory is one of their biggest tools, being able to project is fine enough, everyone does it every night without KNOWING IT! The fact is, they do not REMEMBER IT! Some people fade from a dream to the phase without knowing it all the time... A major mistake... For example... Why do people have dream journals? Because they can remember every single part of their experience every time they wake up, then carry that memory of experiences for the rest of their life? Of every single night they have ever slept?

You' are the sum of your experience, but you have never experienced something if you can not remember EXACTLY what it is you experienced.

Are you here to argue semantics?

I won't bother responding to you unless you have a point...

Here are the facts; read closely my friend, don't miss anything otherwise you might not learn anything, I don't want to see you saying something like that again.

Your dream, is relative to yourself... I can't look at you while you sleep and see what you are dreaming. When you tell me what your dream was, it is only that, what you tell me it was. It is a personal experience that only you have experienced.

When you go out with your friends and get black-out drunk, everything you did when you were blacked out could be told to you. Because everyone else has experienced it. You don't know the experience, so if you experienced something new and you were blacked out you would then not remember right... People telling you what you did makes you feel like they are talking about someone else, because you don't remember having experienced it.


So, saying all that... do you finally get that everything anyone EVER experiences while DREAMING, LUCID DREAMING, OBE, ASTRAL PROJECTING, etc. is all BASED ON PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. If you do not remember the experience you had, it NEVER HAPPENED! Since it is ONLY A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
If everything we perceive is a reflection of the past and our actions dictate the future, what creates our reality? The choices we make, or the past that made us make the choice?

The article about deapenig is best i read on the net so far.No esoteric but hard science based ideas.Very good.

Here is some notes:
i write it during reading so some information may be furteher in the text , many of them was there .


Deepening should only be performed following complete separation from the body. If initiated before separation, the phase may end prematurely. If complete separation does not occur, primary deepening should be used. As regards the deepening techniques themselves, there is one main one and there are several subsidiary ones. The main technique, which does not present any difficulties, is sufficient for having a successful practice.
*actauly deapening is principe on what is separation based
*but before full sepration you must count with many factors of sensory integration

Separation is not best term it assube something leave the body but in fact image of body is changed or created new one in middle of phase state exist different combination of physical and nonphysical senses.
Also physical senses alone can manufacture very strange fealings due to the turning off (ralaxation of muscles,change of focus, sleeap spindles sleap ppotection mechanism)

Horisontal versus vertical
Its good point but have only low effect work only on sense of gravite whte is only low collision much more imporatant is position of limbs and its movement.

Pulling back is caused by mind triing integrate sensory data from two or more sources to one body image it hapens when have nonphysical sill not enought priority .Al the effects depend of priority of signals mind can glue diferent sousrces together,change them ,average them , erase one of them..

Rotation cause very strong fealing of angular accelaration but is good only when LD or AC ending because cause blured vision input witch can destabilize dream.
I use special kind of rotation to go from LD to OOBE. When LD start destabilizing and is little hope to stabilize it by other techniqes i use rotation aroud axis but legs not moving cause to body go to unnatural positions i also try change aperiance af body much as posisble like longer hands.This cause awter waking the nonphysical body is stil partialy present but is differen from physical one so integration is imosible and is eyasi to empody them and go to full phase.Only probelm in this techniqe is legs becouse i not rotate them and change them i few times stuck in legs area but it have simple solution by breathing to them or use other sepration.

The sense you describe is not palpation but proprioreception is different data stream but use it with tactile sense is recomanded for innegration (touch , temerature , vibration , pain and few others)
Very important is focus on hands and have them in visual field this is true also if you not have any vision proprioception itself can couse fisual like sensation like shadow/blask hand.

If you rubbing hands also move them up down and sideways is strengh the fealing even more

Proprioreception can start vision other senses also but if possible is easier use vision to change a position of body in space. Vision have higher priority for changing body position tahan proprireception.

Absent of vision in early phase state depends of with sense is used as primary for constructing new body moust common is vision for LD and proprioreception for OOBE in OOBE is also sometimes gravity or acceleration.

"The combination of palpation and peering must not only be performed simultaneously, but also upon the same objects."
Or cause collison and can create new body or bring attention to pyhsical one dou to lowering priority by collision.

Diving Headfirst
Also is good use with combination with vection blury moving surounding with oposite direction than movement it can stabilize vision with minimal effort.
During diving is alo good mantain acceleration if you get constant veliocity sense of acceleration disapers.Also is posible feal the wind or jump to water .

-----
Only personal experience and never happend
*Yes pahse state is higly subjective but we can prove it happend and dig out some info about it like movement of eyes with is possible use to comunicate from phase state (i try it with LD)
Also is possible find witch body prats is movnig in the dream if you singing or countig and theoreticly even reconstruct vision.So is there also some objectove part but very hard to get to it .

Memory is very important part and is good working on it by dream diary
the memory depend mainly on how much we awake and partialy on intention.

Very usefull tool in depening is use indirect visualision by asociation or use of causality.
Causality is evry useful in early pahse state where is a dficulty visualize direcly so thing about causality and if posible use some sense o create it.
(causality is based on menory and intention/sugescion)
