Transformation Through Shakti


Recently, Dr. Olaf Blanke, a Scandinavian neurologist, elicited an Out-Of-Body experience (OBE) for an epileptic woman when he stimulated the surface of her brain, in an area called the angular gyrus.

One explanation for OBEs includes the idea that they represent a very unusual activation of our spatial perception. In this explanation, a person who's having an OBE perceives themselves as having a different location in space than their body. If this model is valid, then a disturbance in any one of the brain areas responsible for spatial perception may also be implicated in out of body experiences. The angular gyrus is small area in the temporal-parietal-occipital region of brain's surface. One possibility is that the epileptic who was having an out of body experience in this study was one whose seizural activity included the angular gyrus. That particular area of their brain may have been more sensitive than other areas ( that might also contribute to the experience).

There are other areas that contribute to OBEs. One of them is the hippocampus, and the other is an area of the brain's cortex which is directly connected to the hippocampus called the parahippocampal region.

The Angular Gyrus is located on the surface of the brain close to the temporal lobes.

Blanke's observation points to only one area on the surface of the brain - the angular gyrus. The angular gyrus is thought to participate in the brain's analysis of sensory information that allows us to perceive our own bodies. When it misfires, Blanke suggested, the effects can include a sense of floating, and/or seeing the world from a perspective outside of the body. While the angular gyrus is involved in our perception of our own bodies, its function in this regard does not exclude other brain structures from also being involved.

Although the mechanisms behind body experiences are not fully understood, Blanke's seems to imply that there is less known than is the case. Some participants in the Shakti project, as well as many research subjects at Laurentian University's Behavioral Neurosciences program have had out of body experiences following low intensity magnetic brain stimulation. While the evidence does not yet allow a complete picture of the mechanisms of the out of body experience to be formulated, it does remove it from the realm of total mystery.

One psychologist with the Skeptic Society, Dr. Michael Sherner, commented: "Since all of our brains are wired in a similar manner, there is no reason to think that stimulation of this brain region in other patients will not corroborate the finding."

This suggests that stimulating this brain region of in other people may not reproduce Blanke's results. If stimulation of the angular gyrus did not produce out of body experiences, there would still be other areas of the brain that might. If and when Blanke's results experiment are replicated, the final result may be that there are several areas of the brain which can produce out of body experiences on stimulation. A negative result from the Angular Gyrus would not be conclusive.

In the 1950's, the Canadian neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield also succeeded in eliciting an out of body experience using electrical stimulation, but he was stimulating a very different area of the brain, the sylvian fissure. The sylvian fissure divides the temporal lobes from the rest of the brain along its length.. Dr. Michael Persinger has elicited out of body experiences through stimulation of the temporal lobes using magnetic signals derived from the EEG signature of one of the structures deep in the temporal lobes. Clearly, there is not a single "brain center" that supports out of body experiences but rather a widely-distributed set of pathways. An individual's unique neural history leave any one of these most likely to produce the experience for that individual.

A person, stimulating their Angular Gyrus without effect may find that another area can facilitate out-of-body experiences for them because it will fire more easily. If there are several areas that contribute to OBEs, then the one with the lowest thresholds will be the one most likely to trigger one when that area is stimulated.

Blanke also reported that during the same session, the patient screamed, because she "saw" her legs shortening, and "saw" her knees about to hit her face.

This experience is very similar to an experience called "micropsia", in which a person may experience things as being closer than they really are. The opposite experience, called 'macropsia' is the name for the perception that things are larger and farther away than they actually are. The same areas of the brain we are discussing here are also involved in this experience. This writer has personally experienced macropsia as preceding OBEs.

These pictures show where to put the coils to recruit all the areas implicated in OBEs by the work of several researchers.

Magnetic Brain Stimulation, directed towards the angular gyrus, the temporal lobes, the hippocampus, or the parahippocampal regions of the brain may have a chance of making this experience available to all. Not all people would be equally prone to the experience, even with correctly targeted stimulation.

These illustrations show the arrangement of the coils for learning to have OBEs (much more likely after a session, while in twilight sleep) using four coils only from the 8-Coil Shakti.

Even though we are interpreting Dr. Blanke's work on OBEs differently here, it nevertheless constitutes a substantial step forward in our ability to understand out-of- body experiences and to induce them.

And now to the heart of the matter. How to use Shakti to increase your chances for having an OBE.



There are several areas of the brain (and several signals) that may increase your chances for having an OBE. One of them is the
Angular Gyrus on the right side, another is the temporal lobes on the right side, and another is the area where the occipital lobe, temporal lobe and parietal lobe meet on the right side. In spite of the attention given to the angular gyrus on the right side following Dr. Olaf Blanke's accidental elicitation of an OBE,

The most likely signal is the modulated 40hz signal. The second most likely is the Event-related potential signal, especially over the angular gyrus, and the third most likely is the hippocampal signal.

Modulated 40hz signal


Tested by one experienced out-of-body practitioner who reported that it elicited one of the sensations that precede OBEs during a short preliminary session.




Event-Related Potential Signal


Although it has NOT been tested yet, in principle the Event-Related Potential signal may be able to initiate an event at the cortex (brain's surface). If this signal is applied over the angular gyrus, that event could be an OBE, or another experience that may increase your chances for an OBE. They often begin with a 'floating' sensation, or even a visual phenomena (macropsia) in which things seem farther away, or (micropsia) closer than they actually are.




Hippocampal signal


The right hippocampus, with it's contributions to spatial perception may contribute to OBEs, which involve a change in one's perceptions of one's location in space. The Hippocampal signal is implicated in a small number of OBEs reported by participants in the Shakti Project, where only it and the amygdaloid signal were used.


This approach to having OBEs will involve stimulating only the right side of the brain, and stimulating the temporal lobes more then the frontal lobes.

A good balance between the frontal lobes and the temporal lobes is important in maintaining a healthy inner state. Do not do more than two series of sessions over the sides of your head in a row. Alternate with series of sessions over the front of your head.

The first signs that you have stimulated your right hemisphere too much are feeling low energy, sadness without cause, and/or periods of anxiety. Another sign that may occur is finding yourself having trouble recalling words - the "word on the tip of your tongue that you just can't get out"

If you experience these things, you can apply the same signal to the same place on the opposite side of your head. If these follow sessions with the hippocampal signal on the right side, you may also correct them with the amygdaloid signal over the left side.
