Experiential after having some run-ins with a few people who weren't who they quite claimed to be.
In order to have a foot in this world and another in another -- you have to clear a second head space. Basically it's like having two operating
systems on the same computer, a dual-boot machine if you will (to use computer terminology).
You occupy one head space with the original dimensional reality. Once a blank head space has been moved aside by reformatting it through meditation (I
prefer this method and it worked for me) you have essentially divided your mental processes.
There are a variety of ways you can shift that newly carved out headspace into an alternate dimension. Generally, you want to put a dimension almost
identical to the one you currently inhabit into that headspace, as the two will be overlaid together most of the time unless you are focusing on one
or the other...which can't be done for very long at any given time. It's also dangerous as things can still happen to you in the other dimensional
reality if you aren't paying attention and your focus is shifted to the other.
So, if you pick a dimensional reality that is almost identical it won't cause headaches or double-vision. You will, however, notice an increase in
what some people call "coincidences" or "novelty" or synchronicity. This is because things can happen before/after in one dimensional reality and then
happen again in the other. Unless you are paying extra close attention to one and then the other and catch it -- it will seem like things happen, then
didn't happen. Or suddenly something you thought wasn't so now is so (a neighbors cat that just died isn't really dead).
The ways in which you find/get the alternate dimensional reality is by getting yourself and your brainwave near the border of the delta/theta state.
Normally you'd have an elder shaman or someone else nearby to guide you into an alternative dimensional reality, but you can prerecord yourself and
play it back once you've gotten down into an almost dream-like trance.
Once you have found and located a dimensional reality almost identical in your mind's eye to your own, you can "bind" it your new heads space by using
vivid imagery. You can sew around the edges of your vision, use mental glue or weld it. It's up to you. There are far to many dogmas and people
claiming "right" or "wrong" ways. Usually these people are just passing on what worked for them. If it doesn't work, try another variation. Not
everything will work for everyone.
I've found a person becomes "slippery" to any kind of transphasic/transdimensional or otherwise "non standard/uniform" entity. It's impossible to
grapple onto, latch to, connect with if you aren't fully in one singular dimensional reality.
The kicker -- most of us meander and wander through dimensions on a near-constant basis. The difference is that we're singular and not divided. We
move in/out and back and forth between neighboring dimensional realities that differ sometimes only on the quantum level. If you're lucky, you may
notice a weird coincidence or sense of deja vu here or there because of it!
