Title: defining Bruce's technique
Post by floriferous on Feb 3rd, 2010 at 5:10am
I'm just curious to know whether Bruce's technique is a form of phasing. correct me if i'm wrong but is his approach a case of getting to a focus 10 level of relaxation before priming the pump in order to get visuals? There is no apparent classic separation is there?

Hi Flor: On page 154 of AKG is a schematic of the continuum from 0 to infinity so to speak... consciousness is a continuum and phasing is moving from one end of the spectrum to the other... the classic o.b.e. is a phenomena on the continuum, like a pronounced bump... but, when you read Monroe you will note he eventually eliminated the o.b.e... event and simple clicked to whereever he needed or wanted to go... phasing is another method of moving your consciousness from one place to another... I still practice doing a classic o.b.e... I would like to have it as a skill... but, I have done a retrieval which phased me to focus 27 (to my surprise)... and I did not seem to have any of the classic o.b.e. event phenomena...

So I would say yes BM's method is phasing.

I'm not sure what you mean by visuals... are you a natural seer?... like me ( I have visuals which are full color)... on p. 160 BM discusses the difference between physical sight and non-physical images... they are not the same... the non-physical has a distinct feeling of impression which translates an image... if you get what I mean...

Hi Floriferous,

Hereís a link to the description of phasing as given by Bruce.

I wouldnít say that Bruce intended for us to reach focus 10, or any other particular focus level, as a goal.  It is not necessary, but it's probably an easy starting point when you're learning.  I myself tend to have better success when I am mind awake/body asleep.  I think itís probably a byproduct of doing any type of focused relaxation technique, but itís not a requirement.  And no, itís not necessary to be in focus 10 before using the priming the pump method.  Priming the pump of imagination is an example of what I mean by a type of focused relaxation which could easily result in reaching Focus 10. 

Even getting visuals isnít necessarily the target goal either.  I used to think it was, and I still fall into the habit of thinking that.  But I remind myself that the visuals come laterÖanother byproduct of the process.  As you move through the process of Bruceís techniques and reaching some level of relaxation (which is nothing more than being able to focus your awareness on what your intention is) your mind will give you whatever visuals your Interpreter comes up with.  And sometimes we don't even get visuals at all.  I've had contact experiences with no visuals, only a sense of hearing.

If by classic separation you mean the same as what is meant by out-of-body, then no.  That is not the intended goal in Bruceís techniques, although I know from my own experience that classic separation is yet another possible byproduct. 

The purpose of Bruceís techniques is simply to give you a way to learn how easy it is to perceive using the nonphysical senses we all have.  We just donít easily realize we have them or how to access them.
