Channeling and Phosphenism


Channeling is usually understood as the communication of information by a spirit or some other supernatural entity through the means of a person (medium or channel).

Channeling is part of the rituals of many religions such as shamanism, voodoo, candomble, etc. Channeling is now part of the New Age culture and there are many books on the subject. The psychologist C.G Jung wrote theories on channeling. These theories focus on the concept of collective unconscious, an ancient memory preserved for the whole history of humankind in the form of symbols that can appear in dreams, out of body experiences, channeling experiences, etc. The interpretation of these symbols depends on the culture and the person.

The personal aspect of channeling is of interest to us. We will study it in the light of the discoveries in cerebral physiology by Doctor Francis Lefebure, a French physician and researcher.

The works of Doctor Lefebure are based on the systematic use of the phosphenes which are all the subjective sensations of light, i.e. those which are not directly provoked by light stimulating the retina. The phosphenes can be produced by focusing shortly on sources of light.

The systematic study of the phosphenes and their rhythms has allowed Dr Lefebure to design a scientifically improved yoga: Phosphenism. Among the techniques and the exercises he proposes, the “horseshoe” head sway is the most appropriate for producing experiences of channeling or encounters with “spiritual guides”.

The equipment necessary to practice this technique is:


The “horseshoe” head sway, the most efficient technique to establish communications, should be practiced the following manner:

Practice this exercise once a day during 15 to 45 minutes.
After a certain time of practice, from one week to a month, you will most probably have convincing results in the domain of channeling or contacting spiritual guides.

We will define channeling as the interpretation of profound energies by the brain. It is a way to contact the deepest layers of consciousness, called collective unconscious by Jung or akachic records by the New Age culture. The interpretation of these phenomena remains purely personal and it is important to understand them as an amplification of the thoughts of the individual. In channeling experiences, one finds what one has brought with them.
