if you’ve ever heard of dr.paul scheele’s course photoreading whole mind system, he has what he calls photofocus state. basically, photofocus state is where you change the point of your vision to focus or defocus your eyes either in front of an object, or behind it. it takes a little bit of lateral thinking to understand the idea but when you get the idea you’ll realize that all you are doing is putting your vision on ONE point in 3D space and holding it there instead of looking directly at an object.
here are some of the exercises that are used to get photofocus:
i. holding your hands up in front of your eyes, you point your two index fingers at each other. push your fingers slowly toward each other while looking BETWEEN your two fingers at the far wall or off into the distance. if you do this properly, as you push your fingers together you will begin to see a circle in between them. if you keep pushing your fingers together the ball will elongate and look like a cocktail wiener. then breathe deeply for 10 to 20 minutes while holding that vision in front of you.
ii. window eleven: put a piece of black tape vertically on one of your windows. then look THROUGH the tape out the window at an object in the distance off on the horizon. the tape will diverge and it will look like an 11. the further you look the further apart the lines will be. then breathe deeply for 10 to 20 minutes while holding that 11 in front of you.
the trick for doing those two exercises is not to stare DIRECTLY at the closer object, but look at the FAR object and just kind of NOTICE the diverging closer object.
when you get that down you’ll be ready to flip it around. erik’s eye exercise is the opposite of the photofocus technique. instead of looking at the FURTHER object, you look at a CLOSER object. when you do photofocus, you see two of the object in front and the object behind is going to be clear. when you do theta-gamma sync you look at the object in front of you clearly. then you breathe carefully while NOTICING but NOT LOOKING DIRECTLY AT the two blurry objects in back of the point in midair you are looking at. as you breathe and relax into that vision, you go into theta-gamma sync.
here are a couple of t-g sync exercises that are kind of like the ones i gave above but for t-g:
iii. hold one of your thumbs out at arm’s length and the other one about 4 or 5 inches away from your face. when you look at the further one the closer one will be double vision. then switch your vision to the one in front of you and the further one will be blurry and double vision. hold your focus on your closer thumb for about 10 minutes while you breathe. then take away your closer thumb and continue to stare in midair where it was. the further thumb will appear double and blurry if you don’t look directly at it but notice it peripherally. hold that vision and breathe for 20 minutes. you’ll go into t-g sync from there.
iv. for the exercise where you look at the corner of a wall, to train to do it properly, take a pencil or pen and hold it out at arm’s length. then look through the pencil or pen at the wall. you’ll see the pen(cil) diverge into two. now focus BACK on the pen(cil) and notice how the pencil is sharp and the wall is blurry? THAT is the t-g sync you want. hold that vision for 10 to 15 minutes and breathe. when you’re ready, take the pen(cil) away and look at the point in midair where the pen(cil) was. the wall should be blurry and double vision. hold your vision on the point in midair and breathe deeply for 20 minutes and you’ll go into t-g sync.
v. if you are having trouble with the exercise above, it might be because you have bad eyesight. there is an exercise in lisette scholl’s book visionetics called eye fusion that can give you t-g sync while strengthening your eyes. to do it, take a string and tie it to something near or on the wall or in the corner. then pull the string across the room and hold it on the bridge of your nose. look down the length of the string from your nose to the wall or corner. as you look up and down the length of the string it will form a V when you look at your nose, an X as you look along the length of the string, and a Λ as you look at the end that is on the wall. look at the point on the string where you see the X, it’ll be in midair between objects. that is the area you want to look. hold that area and breathe deeply for 20 minutes and you will get your t-g sync. later on you can take away the string and practice looking there without the string like in exercise iv. above and you’ll get it without the string using a pen(cil), then with nothing at all.
hopefully that explains t-g sync in a way that lets you get the idea. it’s kind of complicated to talk about but when you get it you’ll be able to do it pretty quickly.
if you STILL have problems getting the t-g sync, you might want to do work to develop magical trance which is different from hypnotic trance, it’s deeper and of a different quality. the nazi psychiatrist johannes schultz developed autogenic training as a modern yoga for the goering institute in the 1930s and 40s. autogenic training is perfect for developing magical states and lends itself very well to doing evocation work like the kind in the omnipotence course. you may want to read this thread on the board (http://becomealivinggod.com/forum/new-magician-help/still-strugging-with-theta-gamma-sync/). i have given two autogenic training exercises (scanning and phrases) there that will get you into t-g sync in about 4 to 7 weeks if you do it daily.
