Most people when trancing, or medetating, or even projecting, come across this at one point or another. Their extremities become numb, ticklish, and
feel as if they`ve become detatched from them.
With practice, you can re-induce this feeling, anywhere, at any time, within a fraction of a second. I`ll attempt to teach you how. It`s a slow
process at first, so don`t expect immediate results.
1. Place your arm (the one you write with) flat on a surface. Make sure its positioned in a way that no matter how relaxed it becomes it cannot move.
(Later you wont need to secure it like this, but if it moves, rolls, slides or anything, you will lose your concentration.)
2. It shouldnt matter if youre looking at it or not. Just relax it.
Allow EVERY muscle in your arm to relax. Completley. Dont even allow yourself to stabalise your arm.
Get to understand exactly what COMPLETE relaxation is. Completeley turn off your arm. I cannot stress enough... NO MUSCLE MUST BE ACTIVE.
Once youve completley relaxed your arm. And you understand how to quickly turn off your arm... go further.
I know it sounds retarted... but relax your arm, beyond complete relaxation.
No... keep trying.
No. I mean, REALLY go beyond a complete relaxed state.
When you get there it will feel VERY strange.
Youre first response will be to clench your muscles again. It's ok, you're allowed to do so... the first few times. The first time, will be
involuntary... its your minds way of saying... "Whoah wait, we just lost contact with the arm... send a signal and check if its still there."
When I hear descriptions of "Ghost pain" from missing limbs... the descriptions are very much the same as this feeling.
3. Do it a few more times. Every time you feel that strange feeling. Try to ignore it for longer than the last time.
4. If you feel you have mastered holding that feeling in your arm. Try the other one.
5. Once you have mastered the arms... the legs should be VERY easy to do... almost automatic.
6. BEFORE YOU TRY THIS WITH YOUR LOWER TORSO... MAKE SURE YOU HAVE USED THE WASHROOM.
7. Try it with your lower torso. If you have anything in your bladder, it will come out... remember, you are shutting down every muscle in those
8. Once you've gotten the lower torso to shut down (dont worry if it takes a while...the body is the hardest part), try the upper torso.
Now youre probably asking... "WHAT?! But my heart is in my upper torso... wont that turn off too?!"
No... it wont. You cannot voluntarily shut down your heart. Some have managed to change its rate... but you cannot turn it off... its an automatic
9. Have you managed to turn off your upper torso?
I bet you couldnt for more than a couple of seconds. You felt like you were falling didnt you?
Thats expected. For some reason, you get the same feeling here, as you do when youre free falling. Its a VERY hard feeling to ignore... but you must
ignore it... with practice.
10. The head... you should now be ready to try it with your head.
When shutting down your head, remember, you wont feel the feeling in your brain. Your brain cannot feel. However, your sinuses, ears, and jaw will
feel it. Your brain... well, the only thing you'll notice is any headache you have at the time will dissapear immediately.
(Its a great way to eliminate a headache... I dont have headaches anymore.)
Once you've managed to try each part of the body. See if you can shut down EVERYTHING at the same time. You enter an almost immediate trance. Why?
Because you have severed all contact between nerves, muscles and the brain, leaving the brain capable of focusing on any senses its not used to
recieving... possibly senses you never knew you had.
Like pressure for instance. Through this, I learned to home in on pressure. I can now predict rain, long before it comes down, and quite precisely
Remember... you have to learn to ignore the "Ghost pain" you feel. Its hard, but you HAVE to get used to it... just remember that there is NOTHING
WRONG... its a sensory input that tells you nothing... its not worth paying attention to other than the fact that it feels kinda cool.
