So I’m working through the Mastering Divination course and I’m on the part where I’m supposed to get into the Theta Gamma sync before doing automatic writing. The way Koetting describes it, you’re supposed to look at the line where the wall meets the ceiling and then focus your eyes on a point in midair between the line and your head, which will develop into a trance state. Now, I can do this, but my eyes start crossing pretty easily and it just doesn’t feel that comfortable (and isn’t relaxation supposed to be key?)
I was looking through some threads on here about it and I found one poster giving the advice to instead of looking at a point closer to you, to imagine that you’re trying to look through the wall by focusing on a more distant point. I found that I can do this pretty naturally and start trancing out, so I was wondering if it makes any difference whether I’m focusing on a nearer point or farther point when performing this exercise?
