Trance

Post by Master roshi » April 26th, 2016, 1:23 am

During my attempts at deep meditation or when im laying down and attempting to clear my mind, i find it do-able to rid my mind of passing thoughts, but after I do so, it's like i just lie very still, very aware of only my PHYSICAL surriundings even tho my eyes are shut. I find it extremely difficult to shift my awareness to the NONPHYSICAL or enter any sort of trance that takes me deeper in to my meditation. Very hard to visualize anything. It just gets very quiet and im too aware of the physical so i get restless and feel the need to get up after about two minutes of a cleared mind. Any advice??

trance state technique and explanation

A deep trance makes it possible to access the subconscious mind and to program it as we see fit. The active left side of the brain blocks out any attempts to access the passive right side where the seat of the unconscious is. This is analogous to turning off the electricity to a room or a building in order to fix the wiring. The right side of the brain is where we can program our minds to manifest what we want in reality.




To get into a trance state takes practice. Remember, each of us is individual and some may find this easier than others. The important thing is to be persistent and patient with yourself. Persistence and consistency are everything here.

Performing breathing exercises before trance is highly recommended, as this will naturally calm the nervous system.




1. Sit comfortably. Do not lie down because you might fall asleep.

2. Breathe in for a count of six, hold for a count of six and then exhale for a count of six. Do this breathing until you are completely relaxed. Ideally, you should no longer be able to feel your body.

3. Imagine you are climbing down a ladder in the dark. Don’t visualize a ladder; just imagine you can feel yourself doing it. On the exhale, feel yourself climbing a step or two down the ladder. On the inhale, feel yourself holding still on the ladder.

4. Now, let go of the ladder and free fall backwards. If you get dizzy or disoriented, just bring your attention to the front of your body and this will stop. This mental falling effect, when combined with deep relaxation and mental calmness, will cause you to enter the trance state.



What is needed is a mental falling effect inside your mind. This changes the level of brain wave activity from the awake level (Beta) to the asleep level (Alpha) or the deep sleep level (Theta). Once your level of brain wave activity reaches Alpha you will enter a trance. Once you get the heavy feeling, stop the mental falling exercise. If you don’t like the ladder, imagine you are in a lift [elevator], feel yourself falling on the exhale and holding on the inhale. Or, imagine you are a feather, feel yourself floating down on the exhale and holding still on the inhale. You need a mental falling effect to lower your level of brain wave activity.

5. Keep doing this for as long as it takes. The time it takes to enter trance will vary, depending on your experience with deep relaxation and mental calmness.



A trance feels like: Everything gets quieter and you feel like you are in a much bigger place. There is a very slight humming feeling in your body. Everything feels different. It feels a bit like putting a cardboard box over your head in the dark, you can feel the atmosphere change. It’s like everything goes fuzzy or slightly blurred. Any sharp noises, while in trance are painful.

6. To bring yourself out of the trance:
Concentrate on moving your fingers or toes. Once you can move a finger or toe, flex your hands, move your arms, shake your head, i.e., reanimate your body; and get up and walk around for a few minutes.




What this exercise does:
In order to advance in psychic power, we must train our minds. When we are in a trance state, our brain waves slow down considerably. There are two sides to the brain- the left logical/intellectual masculine side and the right creative/intuitive feminine side. The right side is the seat of the subconscious. This is the area of the mind that is open to suggestion and programming and the seat of our astral power. When the left side of our brain is active in thinking, the right side cannot be accessed. Trance states shut off the left side so we can access and program the right side (subconscious).

It takes training to be able to induce a deep trance state. Deep trance states are not always necessary, but for specific workings, they are very important. Once we train our minds to go deeper and deeper into a trance, this becomes easier and easier and takes less and less time as we become adept. The mind is like a muscle and for most people, this exercise will be an introduction to a part of the mind that has never even been accessed before.

It is *very* important to never be startled out of a trance state, especially a deep one, so make sure you are in a room or area where you are left alone and the phone is turned off. Being startled and pulled out of a trance the wrong way can be extremely painful and the pain can last for days, especially if you are doing energy work in this state.

It is normal when in a trance state for any sounds to be very painful. This is because in this state, our senses are extremely heightened.

An adept can place themselves in a deep trance within seconds at will. In closing, it is not necessary to always go into a deep trance to work with your mind. The trance state is used to train your mind. With very important or difficult workings, a deep trance is often necessary.

Thanks a lot for your reply hydro it was very insightful but I have a couple questions. Should I be going in to the trance state with a specific intention? If so, what kind of intention? Would you mind explaining or referring me to a good source for what energy work is exactly and how to do it? I also find it incredibly difficult and distracting to try and count my breathing pattern during meditation. I used to try 4-7-8 cause i had read about it but it was far too distracting and used up all my focus. Will this be a problem? I usually find im much too connected to the left side even when meditating its like i m trying to put all my focus in to one spot but i cant seem to find a spot that uses the right brain! Ill practice this with consistency tho, stay healthy bro

yea you should have some type of intention, the intention can be anything, like programing you brain/mind to do certain things, that's basically what trances is for is to program you brain, to do things you want it to act upon during waking hours or Projection even, as for the energy work its mainly chakra and energy balls, healing the body things like that, (the link I posted isn't my source for the post above, you really don't wanna know where I got that), as for the breathing and counting, do what's comfortable to you, everything don't have to be taken literal. getting in a trance can help with the quieting of the mind as well, that's where programing can also come in. you know how you stare at something and just be zoned out and lose track of time even, well that is basically a trance if you can do that getting in a trance should be easy, they both one and the same except with this you have your eyes closed.

I gave the falling sensation a quick try last night and within a minute or two i felt able to go in a trance. It worked but i didnt use it. Ill give the falling trick a try with a wbtb and see how that goes.. i think itll be much more effective for a lucid d or projection
