So I heard and interesting phrase: trans-location of consciousness. Anyone have interesting ideas as to what it is or how its achieved.

All “translocation” means is “change of location,” so a translocation of conciousness is simply moving it from one place to another. For most people, the consciousness is confined to the head so when you move into any of your energy bodies, or if you sink your awareness into a specific part of your body, you are practicing translocation.

The word is taken from genetics and botany.

That’s it exactly. Just to keep from being limited in our possibilities, I’ll add that intense meditation (or drugs) can translocate your consciousness into all kinds of things, and it’s quite the extraordinary experience! Getting used to putting yourself into such wildly different shoes might be a very important step in the path of shapeshifting, who knows?
