Introduction

Introduction:

About Author:
I am currently a 17 year old male living near
Sydney Australia. After just completing year 11, I
plan to make my way to Tafe and study childcare
services certificate 3 followed by a diploma.
Before attending Tafe however I have a decent 4
month period with nothing to do other than care
for my 2 year old sister, correct my posture and
recover from RSI I developed as a consequence
of computer overuse. As a result of my RSI I am using speech recognition software called
"Dragon Naturally Speaking 11" to assist me in the creation of this book.
The Challenge:
I have decided to take on the chal enge of entering the phase to verify its existence. My past
two and a half years are filled with failed attempts at phase entrance due to poor
techniques, guidance from bad sources and working through high school. Now I finally have
"The Practical Guidebook" written in 2009 by Michael Raduga from the school of out of body
travel. With the book's guidance I am going to proceed with entering the phase successful y
and fully document all failures and achievements I encounter throughout my journey.
My Goals:
- To enter the phase and explore the environment in and around my recently
renovated apartment.
- To make contact with the physical world and attempt to alter it by performing
actions within the phase.
- Explore a place in the phase corresponding to a place in the physical world that I
have never been before. After leaving the phase go to that place in the physical
world and see if during my phase experience I saw what was really there physically.
- Explore the world of the Phase looking for possible life or intelligence and
communicate with others while in the phase.
- Experiment with time travel. Can I alter the past or experience events yet to occur?
Only time will tell.

Introduction

What Is the Phase?
If we knew exactly what the phase was then I probably wouldn't be writing this book. The
phase is a scientific term commonly referred to as a state between wakefulness and sleep.
When someone "enters the phase" they become immersed in a world as realistic as our own.
The world experienced in the phase state can be smelt, tasted, touched, heard and seen just
like planet earth.
What is the world experienced within the Phase state?
Exactly what or where this world is cannot currently be determined. Michael Raduga from
the school of out of body travel forums states that the world of the phase is purely created
by your mind. Within this mind created world you can do anything you want just by thinking
about it. You are even able to influence changes in your physical body by taking fake pills
within the phase world. There are other views however which state that the phase is not a
mind creation but another dimension.
Could the Phase really be another Dimension?
The belief that the Phase is another dimension has been circulating for 100's of years. Out of
Body Experience is a term used to describe the separation of a person's non-physical astral
body from their physical body. A person's consciousness then controls the astral body which
allows them to explore the astral dimension. The term "Astral Projection" is used once a
person leaves their physical body and journeys into the further reaches of the astral
dimension. The astral dimension is commonly called the "Spirit World" as many believe it is
the place people arrive at once they die. Whether this "astral dimension" is a spirit world or
not, it definitely exists and is accessible for all humans who have enough patience to enter it.
What are al these other terms?
Different terms such as "Lucid Dreaming" (being conscious in a dream), "Astral Projection"
(using your astral body to explore another dimension) and "Out Of Body Experience"
(separating from your physical body) are used to explain what a person experiences between
waking awareness and sleep. The term "Phase" combines all these terms into one to avoid
confusion and point out that they are al seemingly experienced in the same state.
How should I use this book?
Only read the entire book from start to finish if you wish to experience the complete day by
day journey I took into the phase. This book is jam-packed with failed attempts yet some
very interesting experiences can be found hidden in-between the failures, analysis and
personal phase concepts I gradual y construct throughout my journey. I highly recommend
reading the reference section in the back of this book before you read any further.

Where can I find your other books or ask you questions?
Al of my books and comments from others about my journey can be found on my blog. I
regularly update it to include the latest information regarding my journey. Feel free to leave
a comment either relating to my experiences or any questions you may have about my
beliefs. Remember to look out for new books and updates to my current books. My blog can
be found at the fol owing link: http://forum.obe4u.com/index.php?topic=842.0
What would you see if you entered the phase?
The phase is a very diverse and unlimited place where practical y anything can happen. The
environment is not fully controlled by the practitioner's conscious mind which is why there is
always an element of surprise in each experience. Before I started writing this book I had a
very strict idea on how a phase experience would play out. No matter what you think you
may experience you actual y could experience something total y unexpected.
What did I think my first phase experience would be like?
I had wanted to "Astral Project" (a spiritual term for entering the phase) for 2 and half years.
In a year 11 English class we had 40 minutes to write a story about a Journey. That gave me
an idea to write about what I thought it would be like if I astral projected for the first time.
My original story (very similar in format to my logged phase experiences) has been inserted
below:

Out - By Phillip Adams

I dragged myself stumbling into my bedroom with the weight of the world on my
shoulders. "There is no God" I told myself. "If there was he would help me through my tough
situations." I felt angry and depressed as I felt my life falling apart.

I couldn't take it any more so I got into bed using it as my escape to the world. I lay there in
silence with memories of the day swooping in and out of my mind. I visualised my thoughts
as bal oons and one by one let them go flying into the sun and popping out of existence.

As the storm in my mind grew weaker and the ocean calmed I felt myself getting deeply
relaxed. My mind became as blank as a white canvas while a blanket of relaxation
encapsulated me even deeper. All feelings of my body drifted away and I no longer felt the
need to move any part of my body and general reflexes such as swallowing were pulled away
from me into the darkness.

Introduction


Suddenly I felt a sinking feeling almost like my bed had become quicksand but I remained
calm and moved with the flow of my thoughts. As the sinking feeling past a new feeling of
extreme heaviness came over me. It felt like I was underwater in a diving suit which had run
out of air and I needed to escape it. I heard a buzzing noise blast into my ears as vibrations
started moving through my body. I tried moving my arms and realised that I was able to
break free of this weird force that was encapsulating me.

As I broke free I felt myself slowly floating upwards. Suddenly I could see again yet my vision
was different. I was in my bedroom yet I could see behind me, in front of me, up and down
and both sides of me without moving my head. I had spherical 360 vision. I slowly drifted
away from my bed almost like a cloud drifting in the air. My mind flipped upside down once I
discovered that my body was still lying in bed yet looked asleep.

My mind raced to reach the truth of where I really was. I started to direct my thoughts away
from the body that was lying on my bed and on me seemingly out of my body. I pul ed my
hands out in front of me and saw blue flowing transparent energy. My mind could not make
sense of what I was seeing, where I was or what was happening. Was I in another dimension,
another realm or another plane of existence? In my altered state of consciousness I felt more
conscious than I ever felt before, almost like my whole life I had been sleeping and I finally
had woken up in the real world.

I decided to explore however my movement seemed jumbled. I didn't appear to have the
legs that properly moved me through this place. I then concentrated on the door of my
bedroom and found myself pulled to it like a magnet. I felt myself move through the door as
if it were made of water. The discovery of my thought being used to navigate the world
worried me as I slowly felt myself moving to familiar yet unfamiliar territory at the same
time.

I wondered whether I should return to my body that was lying on the bed or if I should
continue my journey. I didn't want to walk out into the unknown yet at the same time my
mind was racing with excitement to explore this new world.

I slowly floated from room to room around my house yet discovered it wasn't exactly the
same as I thought it was. Furniture that seemed like it was hundreds of years old seemed to
exist side-by-side with my modern and known house. Textures and patterns of the wal s and
carpet seemed to greatly differ to how I remember and know them. It was like the room I

was in had been entangled in the strings of time forming a knot combining elements from
different time periods together.

I slowly drifted up out of my house into a further mutated reality. Buildings and structures I'd
never seen before seemed to surround my house. They looked yellow, paper like and had
weird inscriptions on them. Some of them seemed to replace houses I knew and others
seemed to be merged and intertwined inside them.

I saw movement on the streets and the instant focusing on the movement sent me to it. The
closer I came the more I realised what I was seeing. The street was filled with small creatures
yet none that I ever seen before. There were dog-like and cat-like creatures that barked at
me almost telepathical y. Some looked hungry, others lonely and some violent and vicious.
One of them started to cling on to me like a lost child finding it's parents.

Waves of fear swept over me as my new surroundings frightened me. I slowly felt myself
being forced back to my house as if a rope was pulling me back to my body. Looking down I
saw a silver faint line connecting me to my house directly to where my room was.

As I got pulled through the wall back into my bedroom I saw a dark ghostly figure hovering
over my body. Upon seeing this I felt myself jolt back into my body as I quickly sat up in my
bed back into the normal world again.

My new experience opened my eyes to the world as I felt a great sense of accomplishment.
My journey into the unknown dimension sparked a new hope in my life that there real y is a
God and there's more than just the materialistic world we live in.
Comparison To My First Experience:
My first phase most similar to this one occurred on Day 35. I performed a reality check
during a false awakening and tried flying to the moon yet instead I found it miniaturized on
my bedside table. I used my mind to move the sun, partly went through the ceiling of my
bedroom and put my hand through my bedroom door.
It's very interesting to see how the phase experience itself as well as the method of entry
was total y different to how I expected. Overal this proves that the phase will not instantly
mould into the shape of your expectations and that there does seem to be some form of
non-conscious control of the phase environment.

Chapter 1: Discovery of the 2009 (Version 1.0)
Practical Guidebook

This chapter fol ows the events immediately occurring after finding the 2009 version of "The
Practical Guidebook" available on the internet as a free eBook.
With high expectations I begin my first phase attempts. With some early near phase results
my excitement level escalations however soon drops with lack of success.
In my early stages of practice many mistakes are made mostly due to my inability to read
everything before attempting techniques.
I learn to analysis my mistakes and make plans of actions to prepare myself for phase
entrance.

Chapter 1: Discovery of the 2009 (Version 1.0) Practical Guidebook

Day 1 (12th October 2011):
Preparation: Just before settling into bed I read approximately the first 25 pages of the
practical guidebook. I learnt that indirect techniques are used when you first awaken from
sleep. I also read about successful phase entrance occurring in as little as two days. Since I
only found the book as a free download before going to bed I was unable to practice any of
the indirect techniques. At about 11:30pm I stopped reading and went to sleep with the sole
intention of setting myself up with a good head start the next morning. This would be
achieved by waking up in the morning without moving a muscle just like the book describes
followed by attempting an indirect technique.
I chose the "Observing Images" technique since it was the first indirect technique described
in the book and it sounded pretty easy. It is performed by simply watching the images and
shapes in your mind with your eyes closed. With the intention of performing the technique
upon awakening I drifted off into sleep and hoped for the best.
Experience: I woke up in the morning with a blank mind and started to aimlessly move
around. After about a minute I remembered my goal I'd set myself the previous night. Sadly I
had failed to catch myself waking however the success of remembering the phase was
enough of an achievement for me. I've set myself the goal to remember to remain
motionless more quickly after waking tomorrow.
Day 2 (13th October 2011):
Preparation: Before night fil ed the sky I wanted to make sure that I was better prepared. I
spent the day reading all the indirect techniques mentioned in chapter two of the book.
Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to practice any techniques for more than a few minutes
due to a shortage of free time. I found observing images to work very wel however the
images never got very in-depth. By the end of the day I'd finished reading the first two
chapters of the book. I decided not to read on as chapter 3 introduced direct techniques
which I didn't feel I was ready for.
On page 45 I found a fantastic graph which I have inserted on the next page. It visually
demonstrates the algorithm of action you should take upon waking. It illustrations that
during the first five seconds you should use a separation technique fol owed by four cycles of
three indirect techniques for about 3-5 seconds each until one works. If nothing happens
after 4-5 cycles you should either go to sleep again or get up for the day.

I also read in the book that the science of sleep has shown that a person wakes up in the
morning remembering what he or she was thinking about the previous night. That theory
was definitely proven as I remembered the phase a minute after waking. With that in mind I
decided to choose my three indirect techniques that I would cycle. The book states that the
three most successful techniques are:

Observing Images - Passively watch the images in your head until they envelope you or
become ultra-realistic.
Phantom Wiggling - Attempt moving a phantom limb to and from the physical body until
movement exceeds four inches.
Listening in - Listen to the high-pitched noise in your head and attempt to increase its
volume.
I decided these would be my three indirect techniques. I like them because I find observing
images easy as I often see images dancing around my head even when fully awake. Listening
in is effortless as I am able to hear the high-pitched sound in my ears with ease. The only one
of these I dislike is phantom wiggling which during practice I kept on accidentally moving a
real muscle. I may decide to drop Phantom Wriggling at a later stage.
I went to bed yet again with the intention of waking up in the morning without moving
instantly followed by cycling my three indirect techniques. I decided not to choose a
