This man is an icon, I have written many times of all the “Roberts” in Astral projection, leading to the hero of Astral Projects being called Rob, this Robert is right up there with the best.
Although he was better known as Bob Monroe. And founded The Monroe Institute, still thriving today.
He developed Hemi-Sync, a way to use binaural beats to reach higher states of consciousness.
A binaural beat is an auditory illusion perceived when two different pure-tone sine waves, both with frequencies lower than 1500 Hz, with less than a 40 Hz difference between them, are presented to a listener dichotically (one through each ear).
For example, if a 530 Hz pure tone is presented to a subject’s right ear, while a 520 Hz pure tone is presented to the subject’s left ear, the listener will perceive the auditory illusion of a third tone, in addition to the two pure-tones presented to each ear.
The third sound is called a binaural beat, and in this example would have a perceived pitch correlating to a frequency of 10 Hz, that being the difference between the 530 Hz and 520 Hz pure tones presented to each ear.
There are many Apps and audio files out there claiming to entrain your brainwaves in this way, or by using isochronic tones, which do not have to be in stereo. This is something you will have to use your discretion to investigate, often with a hefty pinch of salt!
My mind machines, The Procyon and Kasina work in this way both using sound and light patterns through their goggles.
Bob wrote three fantastic books, Journeys Out of the Body, Far Journeys and Ultimate Journey, which I thoroughly recommend, about his experiences out of the body, aka astrally projecting.
His first experience with sleep paralysis and the vibrations came in the 1950s, when he was experimenting with sleep learning.
I tried putting my textbooks under my pillow at Medical School, who knows, maybe it worked, somehow they let me pass! But uncomfortable. In those days Scrumpy Jack at The Horseshoe was an invaluable sleep, if not study aid.
The Gateway Experience is perhaps the pinnacle of the technology produced as regards guided meditation to reach different levels of out of body experiences.
My Astral Projects blog has the url focus27.wordpress.com as the Focus 27 in Hemisync lore is The Library, a chilled out hub of knowledge.
Here are some of the Focus levels it is offered you may explore:-
Focus 1 – Normal, everyday waking consciousness. Completely in phase with physical matter reality. Also referred to as “C1 Consciousness”.
Focus 10 – The physical body is deeply relaxed while the mind remains conscious, awake and alert. “Mind awake, body asleep.”
Focus 11 – The Access Channel – the ultimate communication channel to all levels of awareness -mental, physical, and emotional.
Focus 12 – A state of expanded awareness while the body remains deeply relaxed and asleep.
Focus 15 – A state of No-Time. Consciousness is now far removed from physical body signals. Linear time is no longer relevant to experience.
Focus 21 – On the very edge of perception of the time/space continuum. Mind remains fully conscious and active.
Focus 22 – On the border between time/space and non-physical states of being. Comatose.
Focus 23 – The condition in which an individual may find him or herself immediately following physical death.
Focus 24 – The site of non-physical activity generated by simple or primitive religious or cultural beliefs.
Focus 25 – The expression of the major organized religious beliefs in recent human history.
Focus 26 – Here are identified certain areas, few in number, containing the structures and knowledge of various highly individual religious and other beliefs based on direct experience of self.
(Focus Levels 24 to 26 are referred to as the Belief System Territories, and are explored extensively during the Lifeline program)
Focus 27 – The edge of human thought capacity. The site of a way-station (not a terminus) for rest and recovery from the trauma of physical death.
Focus 34/35 – The area of the Gathering. Beings from many other locations within the physical universe are gathered here to witness the upcoming Earth Changes. First mentioned in Bob Monroe’s second book, Far Journeys
Focus 42 – I-There cluster consciousness.
Focus 49 – Sea of I-There clusters.
Hemisync is short for hemispheric synchronisation. If you can get your right brain and left brain optimally connected and synchronised, some amazing things can happen.
