This veteran writer has been on HubPages for a decade and has created over 100 original pieces.
Creating the right environment to explore your previous existence is hard, in this modern world with distractions aplenty. There is often little time or peace, to find the right state of mind to explore things not governed by conventional thinking. The Christos Technique helps to give us the chance to experience and explore places long hidden and often thought to be impossible.This hub explores a different way of accessing the world within and it is worth the effort as the experience was for me, was both enjoyable and enlightening.
The method below is slightly different than the other technique I had previously shared. This version may help those who struggled with the other method that I published some time ago.
The Original Technique
The First Stage.
The person who will be the subject of the experiment will have to lay flat on their back, upon a level floor. They may have a cushion under their feet, head and lower back to maintain their comfort, as comfort will aid their attempts at entering an altered state of consciousness. The subject must also have their shoes and or socks removed, as this is a key to relaxation.
The subject is then instructed to close their eyes, then their ankles are
massaged gently for 2-3 minutes, this helps to increase calm in the participant.Then the person who is to run the procedure should massage the subject around their 'third eye' position on the head. The area should be not be roughly rubbed, gentle and peaceful movements are key. If done properly, the subject will soon sedate. If the subject is not fully relaxed they should take deep breaths and let themselves embrace the calm of the environment.
* The environment can be set up however you wish, incense and candles can be great aids when it comes to relaxation.
The Second Stage.
The second stage is designed to get the subject to expand their mind beyond their physical surroundings. This technique will still work on people who are not spiritually inclined, the technique will also work on subjects who are mildly sceptic. That said, if someone is more receptive the idea or has a deep need to uncover hidden knowledge, they will get a lot more from the experience.
While the subject is laying on their back the Interviewer( This will be the same person who massaged the third eye in Stage One) will ask the subject to keep their eyes closed and visualize their own feet. The subject is then asked to visualize his feet growing two inches longer, they only have to feel themselves growing the two inches. The Interviewer will then ask the subject to say when they feel like they have grown two inches longer.
The Interviewer will then ask the subject to return their feet to their normal length, when that is done the Interviewer will get the subject to repeat this procedure a few more times. Now the Interviewer must ask the subject to do the same but through their head. The subject should do this about half a dozen times, just to stretch their perception of the human body.
Then the interviewer must get the subject to stretch all their limbs six inches in length. They must repeat this about half a dozen times and then copy the procedure on the head. The Interviewer then asks the subject to stretch out from his limbs to twelve inches and leave it there, and then asks the subject to stretch their head the same distance and leave it.
* You can see why we changed to our version of the procedure, as there is a lot of repetition.
Then ask you ask the subject to expand out of their regular shape and inflate like a balloon. This process is to expand themselves out of their normal shell. This leads to the next step, which is designed to get the subject to see things outside of the ordinary.
The Third Stage,
Here we need to get the subject to experience expanded consciousness, to do this, the subject is asked to visualize their own front door. They are then asked to describe it in detail whilst their eyes remain closed. The interviewer is to fire as many questions as possible to determine the facts of the subjects visualization and to make sure that the subject concentrates on what they see. To increase the subjects level of visualization, they are asked to visualize standing on their roof and the Interviewer will continue to ask them to describe what they see.
When they and you are happy with the responses, the Interviewer should ask them to raise their view an extra 50 metres upward and describe what they see now. The Interviewer can then ask them to slowly turn around 360° and describe what they see in as much detail as possible.
Next, the subject is asked what time of day is it? (Day or night- usually the subject sees this world in daylight.) Then ask them to take in their surroundings in the opposite time of day. Then they should be asked to switch back, this is to get them to change back to the original time frame.
At this point the Interviewer is encouraged to positively assure and enforce that they control the settings. Try asking them "Who can change the scene from night to day or day to night?
The desired response from the subject is "I can". It is important they realize they are in control of what they see.
The Fourth Stage.
This is the key stage of the experiment, at this point we are guiding the subject to an experience and making it possible to trigger a past life regression.
If you believe the subject is happy in their expanded state of mind, now is the time for the Interviewer to ask them to raise up into the clouds and then slowly descend to the ground. When they reach the ground ask them to describe their surroundings. If they are back in their own home ask them to rise again into the clouds and to have freedom of movement, ask them to fly fast and travel freely in the open sky.
Then ask them to descend to the ground and ask them where they are. It is best to use good open questions to gain information on their experience.
* I have included some good open questions that the Interviewer should be asking.
From this point on it is good to have a record of what is said and done. The other person who massaged the feet can make records of the results or a simple recording would work just as well. The subject can spend any length of time they want in the altered state but 20-40 minutes is usually good enough to gather any information of relevance. The original book says the subject can leave the altered state anytime they want with no ill effects. That said, we have all been woken from a dream before and we all feel a bit groggy for some time afterwards. If they say they want to leave you can get them to go to the clouds, and float down to their home. Once at the house, guide them back to the room and get them to open their eyes when they feel happy to exit the dream state.
Suggested Open Questions
- What do you see?
- Where do you live?
- Where do you work?
- What colour is your skin?
- How old are you?
- Are there people around?
- Do they understand you?
- Where are you?
- Do people speak to you?
- What are you wearing?
- Can you describe that?
- Where do you want to go?
If anyone requires further guidance on this just message me or comment and I will try to help as best I can. It is similar to our version, but as I stated in The Christos Experiment technique we altered it a bit. Some peoples personality type will have an impact on their experiences. If someone is artistically talented their mind will flow better, they may give a lot more detail and their findings will be different when compared to a person who has a more scientific style of thinking.
I hope you enjoy the experience and find it interesting.

There is a group on facebook on the christos technique.
It would be great to have you there sharing your experience with it.
