You need to actually do something for this to work! My goal is to notice any changes that happen within the blackness that is in my field of view. It can be literally anything, as Frank put it, it could be a flash of something, or perceiving some kind of movement in the blackness… when you begin to see ANYTHING again, do not outright dismiss anything you see consciously zero in on it. As I see this stuff, I kind of talk to myself while observing it, but I do so without actually talking verbally or thinking it.

This web page is dedicated to Frank Kepple, projection expert and astral explorer. What you will read is Frank in his own words, as far as possible; I have had to paraphrase here and there and restructure some paragraphs in order to present the information in its current format. I have created this resource as a tribute to Frank and to promote his own findings in the field of afterlife studies.
I hope you will find his contribution to the exploration and understanding of the astral world as rewarding and stimulating as it has been for me. He graduated in Electronics and worked as a Science Consultant in industry for many years before taking early retirement in the South of France so as to more fully concentrate on his research.
Frank first became interested in afterlife studies and the work of pioneering astral researcher and author Robert A Monroe when he came across one of his books in a second hand book shop over 20 years ago. On a whim, Frank decided to read it as he thought that the author was either completely mad or onto something.
Only then would he be satisfied that Monroe was indeed onto something. He never looked back! In recent years, Frank has spent a lot of time contributing to the Astral Pulse discussion forums where he has provided a wealth of information and invaluable advice to many.
Frank has since retired from on-line participation due to ill-health, but it is hoped that this resource will provide a detailed overview of his research to date, so that people will continue to build upon his work in the future, just as he built upon the work of Monroe.
Modern research into the Wider Reality is only just beginning His early work, detailed in his first book Journeys Out Of The Body, followed very traditional lines of study. Such that strong parallels can be drawn between his experiences detailed in that book, and the work of the traditional mystics.
However, his later books Far Journeys and Ultimate Journey, published many years later, reveal how his work had progressed to the development and formation of a completely different model of consciousness. These levels were labelled by using an escalating series of arbitrary numbers. Each level was identified from the mental impressions presented that Monroe categorised and labelled, so that others could follow in his work and duplicate his experiences.
At some point in his experience, Monroe was able to determine the profound truth, that there is no separation within consciousness. But what he was doing, in his words, was changing the phase relationship between himself and his surroundings. Monroe was an electronics engineer by profession, and it so happens that I too graduated in electronics, so I understand where he was coming from when he talks about phase relationships.
To all intents and purposes, those two voltages are mixed, but at the same time they are separated. What separates these two voltages is the phase-angle relationship between them. Monroe used this phase-angle relationship idea as an analogy to describe the relationship between the physical or objective layer of consciousness, and the non-physical or subjective layer of consciousness.
So Monroe figured there was a degree Phase Relationship between the two areas of reality. To him, projection became a case of "switching phase" between the physical and the non-physical. Phasing, therefore, entails initiating a degree phase shift between the physical and the non-physical realms of reality. In fact, Phasing does not incorporate any kind of out of body feelings at all. The key to Phasing is to just let the experience flow.
Just lay back and simply become it. When I close my eyes all I see is blackness. But I think the essential difference between me and many beginners is when they close their eyes they are not really noticing. I think people become too wrapped up in methods and techniques, and it prevents them from really noticing themselves. Okay, so as I say, when I close my eyes all I see is blackness, which is normal.
Now, because I am noticing as opposed to avidly trying to perfect and follow some technique or method, in the traditional sense, my full attention is taken by the simple act of noticing. Noticing what? But then, after a short while, I may see that perhaps one part of the blackness is not quite so black. Perhaps there was just a brief flash of something, then maybe a sensation of a movement somewhere else.
Maybe I just heard someone call my name. I might see swirling areas of not quite so black as the rest. I might see flashes of this and that.
As I am offering myself these images, my attention is steadily becoming more fixated within. As my attention becomes fixated within, from the act of noticing, at this stage I am not aware of my physical body. Part of my awareness realises that somewhere in the background is a physical body, in bed, etc.
Before, the forefront of my awareness was my physical and degrees turned around from that, in the background of my awareness, was the non-physical. Now, my previous foreground physical is my background, and my previous background non-physical is my foreground. As I say, Monroe first coined the term as he was an electronics engineer and he was picturing it like it were two voltages, degrees out of phase with each other.
Hence he coined the term Phasing. But I guess people generally have difficulties picturing two voltages degrees out of phase with each other. So, instead, imagine a revolving door that is the entrance to a building. You are standing outside the building. You are aware of a reality that exists inside the building, but is closed to you by the door. Now, you are inside the building. You are aware of a reality that exists outside the building, but it is closed to you by the door.
Now again go through and turn the door by degrees, and stop. Okay, so as my attention becomes fixated within, from the act of noticing, this causes a degree phase shift between my awareness of the physical outer and my awareness of the non-physical inner sense of reality.
So from then on, I continue to notice anything that may come about. This action is translated objectively as the perception of flashes of all manner of this and that, random images that come and go, all kinds of spurious sounds, and so forth.
What is happening is that you are objectively offering yourself snippets of other dimensions of reality. I think, ultimately, what people who follow the Phasing approach need to be realising is: the other dimensions of reality only seem to be objectively separated.
But in reality, there is no separation in consciousness. However, all these dimensions of reality are all affecting, entwined, and exchanging energy with us within every moment of our existence!
What I feel is more important is to try to explain exactly what it is that we are phasing to What exactly IS the Wider Reality? That is what I will attempt to explain here.
I call the totality of our consciousness, when everything is included together, as the Wider Reality. As we are primarily focused on the physical world, we only really perceive the physical.
This leads us to think that the rest of the Wider Reality is somewhere else. This is incorrect. The Wider Reality is in fact ALL here, the crucial factor is that we have chosen to focus our awareness into a specific area of that entire spectrum of consciousness for the purpose of gathering experience.
You can call them what you like. The actual label you place is irrelevant. For ease of understanding, however, we need to call them something simple and logical. Right, so consciousness is apportioned into 4 areas. Someone asked me recently if there was anything beyond Focus 4, i. The answer is, to my knowledge, within our particular system there are just 4 Primary areas. Consciousness is infinite. There may well be an infinite number of other systems either like ours or perhaps wildly different.
Our system can be divided into Focus 1, Focus 2, Focus 3, and Focus 4. Together they form the totality of our Consciousness Continuum, or all that is at least in our system. Each of us has our very own Consciousness Continuum that exists across these four areas. Monroe was a pioneer in this and he was the very first person, to my knowledge, who realised that these areas were actually focuses of attention and not places.
Hence the term "focus" in the focus numbers that Monroe talks about such as Focus 10, Focus 21, etc. Why "focus"? You might ask. Well, that is the reason. Anyone reading this within the physical Focus 1 has their Primary Focus set to the physical.
When we project, our Primary Focus does not change. We may shift our focus of attention, but our Primary Focus remains Focus 1. Think of your Primary Focus as your "home focus" if you like.
Say you visit a friend at another address. Your home address remains the same. Our Primary Focus remains the same, but we temporarily shift our focus of attention to another area of our consciousness continuum.
Throughout the time we are alive and kicking within the physical, our Primary Focus is Focus 1. Now, when a person dies, what we objectively view as "death" is an objective representation or translation of the person switching their Primary Focus from Focus 1 to Focus 3 of consciousness.
You see, when you switch your Primary Focus, all subjective interaction with your physical body is stopped. In other words, the physical shell stops functioning as you shed it and go to live within Focus 3. This area is known as the Transition Area for various reasons. Now, I just want to say again, that all this is not some weird and whacky theory I happened to dream up one day.
What I am saying to you is how it is, as far as I can tell.

What a shame for someone so integral to disappear so suddenly and oddly. Its funny, 3 weeks ago, I was as skeptical as they come when discussing about other dimensions that whatnot. I mean he was leading achieving his purpose in life. Only in his last days to come back at act so From that my deduction is one of two things: 1. Some sort of value proposition a logical offer came about or 2.
