I have been using Dr Lefebure’s method professionally for years now. My clients are always satisfied: dyslexic children, persons with problems of stuttering, high school children with learning difficulties… Dr Lefebure’s guidelines are an inexhaustible source of fabulously positive results. Thank you very much for this method of personal development.
I have started to express interest in the method to help my 8-year old nephew who suffers from “spelling problems” and who has been treated by a speech therapist for a year and a half. After just five sessions with phosphenes, my nephew’s reading has improved a lot. He has progressed a lot and enjoys practising with phosphenes.
I have since been practising Phosphenic Mixing by myself and with the son of a friend who is a juvenile delinquent. I get good results.
I also help two adults learning foreign languages with the method.
I am a beginner in Phosphenism. I practise Phosphenic Mixing to study as a university student. I remember my lessons very well! I am entirely satisfied!
I have just passed the exam of administrative assistant for the conservation of the National Heritage. There were only thirty posts available and, thanks to Phosphenism, I am now part of that administration!
I am convinced that using the phosphenes has helped me learning and remembering perfectly much knowledge, acquiring a strong morale and much enthusiasm, as well as developing my intuition (I spontaneously reviewed the subjects that came up for the exam and, the night before the test, I dreamt of the precise subject that I had to deal with the next day)… Thanks very much for distributing the discoveries of Dr Lefebure which I, too, endeavor to spread around me!
With gratitude for all the help that the lamp and the Alternophone have brought me this year, for the preparation of a difficult examination that I passed.

Results obtained by my son using Phosphenic Mixing Applied to Education.
My son is in his 2nd year of primary school and he is 8 years old. During the month of February, he was doing very badly at school. Up until then his grades were good even though he had a tendency to daydream in class, and he was not always very happy about going to school. He is a hypersensitive child, rather shy at times. He has a strong character and is interested in many things; he can spend hours studying something that interests him. He began to daydream more and more in class, saying that he felt very tired, and his attention span declined. He even asked if he could rest in class. There was a big clash with his teacher just before the holidays in March. I was then called to a meeting by the school principal. I already met regularly with my son’s teacher in order to follow his work at school. His father and I had even considered taking him out of school. It was decided that our son would see the educational psychologist for testing his intellectual capacities. I therefore decided to find a method that would improve his capacities of attention and concentration. And that is how I found Phosphenism on the internet. For about ten days during the school holidays, I practiced phosphenism with my son. He practiced approximately 15 minutes, 3 times a day. The first results that were noticed concerned his ability to listen, whether it was at school or in everyday life; the activities of everyday life meaning that he was much more receptive when I would ask him to come to the table for a meal, clear the table or put away his belongings, etc. This was done with calmness and peace; there were many fewer objections on his part. As for his shyness, there was also a definite improvement and I sensed that he had more self-confidence.
For dictation, which he had a great deal of difficulty with, I use the technique of visualizing one or two words: he makes a phosphene and I have him think of what he has just read, spelling the word with his eyes closed. We have obtained good results; he no longer has any apprehension and his last two marks were 8/10.
For math, he reads the exercise, makes a phosphene while thinking of the exercise and then he does the exercise. When it is for solving a math problem, I see that ideas come to him quickly. And recently for doing subtractions, whereas before he would tend to count on his fingers, the answers now come to him naturally. Just for the anecdote, he said to me, ‟Too easy, Mom”.
For reading, he makes a phosphene, then waits a little bit or sits under a light for having a stronger light on the text so that he is not disturbed by the phosphene. He reads much faster, this is undeniable, and his elocution is very good, having rhythm and good intonation. He lives the text.
As for school, he no longer says that he doesn’t want to go. He even said to me that he was quite happy to go to school and that things were going well with his teacher. What a relief!! He is still a little bit dreamy, but much less, and according to his schoolteacher there are no more behavior problems. He no longer complains about being tired.
Thank you for this method.

I went back to revising lessons for an upcoming examination. Naturally, I revise using phosphenes, and it is undeniable that I am able to memorize more easily. I am looking forward to the start of the school year and to seeing my children so that I can pass the Phosphenic educational skills on to them. It is a formidable tool!
Sonia – FRANCE
My friend had her son, Hugo, practice. He is 10. This brought about many results. It is impressive. At the beginning of the year, his handwriting was poor (shaky, sideways, etc.) During the year, his handwriting transformed completely. He now has beautiful writing (regular, straight, the letters are correctly linked together, etc.) And above all, he has become the best pupil in his class. Children are very receptive to Phosphenism.
Franck. – FRANCE
My brother, who is a police officer, decided to follow a training course in order to be promoted in his work. As he had stopped studying a long time ago, he was worried about starting to study again and to not have the required level to succeed in his exams. I jumped on the occasion to present Phosphenism to him, as he did not know anything about it. A year and a half ago, I had offered him a Phosphenism box set, for working with Phosphenic Mixing. A short while ago, I had the very pleasant surprise of hearing from him. He called to thank me for introducing him to Phosphenism. He believes that thanks to this method he obtained good results on his exam. He feels that Phosphenism greatly helped him in memorization and that it also gave him more self-confidence. Using phosphenes, he visualized succeeding in his examinations and remaining calm and confident during the exam. This functioned very well, and he indeed passed the exam with confidence and calmness, and obtained good results.
Franck. – FRANCE
Phosphenism is truly fabulous for studies. I have used it with great success. It is a little bit as if one were cheating, except here one has the right to do so. The lessons really appear in my mind’s eye during exams. Learning with phosphenes is a real treat. Personally, I project the phosphene on my lessons, as explained in Phosphenic Mixing Applied to Education

PHOSPHENES AND ACADEMIC STUDIES.
I am in my last year of study as a computer engineer. During the end of term exams, I had one last subject to pass which was very difficult for me. It required a lot of reflection, and there was also a lot of information to be learned by heart. I had very little time left… so why not use Phosphenism?
I used the following methodology, with the Pocket Lamp:
– I focused on the lamp to produce a phosphene.
– I attentively read the lesson through the phosphene.
– Once the phosphene was finished, I focused on the lamp once again, thinking about what I had just read (as best I could…)
– I resumed reading through the phosphene…
– Once I had read everything, I started over again: whether reading the whole thing or the most important parts of the lesson.
I obtained the best mark in the class. And in the end, I really hadn’t worked all that much…
Phosphenism saves a lot of time, and it has a positive action on intellectual capacities and attention span. I believe that using it for studying is completely beneficial, as long as it is used properly. I am sure that a lot of ‟bad” or ‟mediocre” students could surprise everyone if they were given the right tool…!
Quentin D. – FRANCE
Here are the effects that I have been able to notice on myself, my children and several people around me after more than two years of practicing the method.
– For learning at school (primary and high school or secondary school):
It allows a better concentration and helps memorization.
In channeling energy, it reduces the natural tendencies to distraction and helps acquire the concentration necessary for studying and understanding. It facilitates the fixation of what needs to be memorized through the mental projection in the phosphene of what needs to be retained.
It helps reduce failure at school and gives disturbed or stressed children the same chances as the other pupils.
The simultaneous use of the phosphene and reading/reciting aloud associated to writing definitively solves spelling problems.
– For University studies and higher exams:
It facilitates the memorization of large quantities of information, mainly through the use of visual memory.
The use of phosphenes is very appropriate for memorizing the great amount of knowledge required in University studies (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Biology and Natural Sciences).
– For learning complex movements in gymnastics, dance and acrobatics and solving coordination problems of the body, as well as dyslexia:
Associating a movement with the phosphene (cenesthesic memorization) allows one to carry out what is desired without being blocked and be able to memorize it.
– For professions in the areas of creation and invention:
Projecting problems or ideas into the phosphene enables one to quickly obtain a swarm of ideas that are favorable to creation and invention.
These functions are useful not only to artists, creators and inventors, but also for anyone who needs to find new ideas (jobseekers, managers, engineers, etc. for solving problems). A secondary effect of phosphenes is a harmonization of the personality and seeing things in a very positive way. Aggressive persons who practice regularly with phosphenes develop in a very positive manner and the best of their personality comes out.
One could imagine using Phosphenism in jails, with drug addicts or persons who have depressive behavior.

PHOSPHENES AND REFLEXES.
I noticed that when I practiced as session of phosphenes a few minutes before playing a video game, it was much easier for me to carry off impressive victories over my virtual enemies. I noticed these results with two super-fast combat games. In both cases, my reflexes are much sharper and I am ten times more audacious (I try tactics that I would have never dared before), my speed is greater and it is easier to improvise in action. I keep my adrenalin under control and I am surprised at being able to handle long rounds of intense battle without flinching. In addition, my comprehension of the game is improved: on levels that I thought I had completely explored, I have found new spots, new strategies, and new ways of manipulating this or that weapon…
I do not imagine that this testimony will contribute to the evolution of humanity, but this is just to point out that concerning rapidity and precision, phosphenic energy has once again accomplished its mission. However, there is a fly in the ointment: these games have become almost too easy and they bore me now. I am going to have to buy new ones!
Stéphane S. – FRANCE
I would like to let you know about the effects I have noticed after the practice of Phosphenic Mixing and the use of the Alternophone. My son is fourteen years old (in the 9th grade and he has always been among the 4 best pupils in his class, first this semester). He is very happy and motivated by Phosphenic Mixing and uses it for studying his lessons.
He recently made a comment: ‟Since I have been studying with phosphenes I no longer forget what I am learning, and I’m afraid of remembering so many things that I won’t have enough space in my head for everything that I’ll have to study in the future.‟
Of course I put his mind at ease about the vast potential of the human brain and told him he could memorize everything he wanted without any fear.

CHRISTOPHE’S PROGRESS (age 15) AFTER THREE MONTHS OF USING PHOSPHENIC MIXING.
My son Christophe is a 15 year old teenager who has always had serious spelling problems. He has a good memory. He knows the rules of grammar well enough, but when he is sitting in front of a blank sheet of paper, he forgets everything!
For 2 months, we worked regularly using phosphenes.
The effects after 2 months of practice:
Improved memorization of the words studied with phosphenes. As Christophe said: ‟I can see the words written in my head”. In a text where he usually made fifty mistakes, he made only twenty or so.
Intellectual acuteness: a greater quickness of thought. His elocution tended to be broken up, and it now has become much more fluid. His personality became more self-assertive.
His mathematics teacher told him that he had completely changed: much better participation in class, more alert and clearer thinking.
The technique used for a dictation:
– He does a phosphene.
– He then thinks about the word to memorize, closes his eyes and pictures the word in his imagination.
– He then does another phosphene, puts on the eye band and writes the word (in the dark) without looking at the sheet of paper.
As you can see, I try to follow the precious instructions contained in your book ‟The ABC of Phosphenic Mixing”.
Thanks ever so much for him.
Christophe – FRANCE
I have noticed that this simple method has brought me a very satisfying balance, has increased my capacities, mental and physical alike, has activated my curiosity, has made studying easier for me, increasing both my capacity for effort and my comprehension. (…) After 2 to 3 weeks, I have started to experience the first effects on the quality of sleep: no more restless nights, refreshing sleep, easiness to wake up, etc.
Everyday, I realize more and more that Phosphenism is necessary, if not essential to my career as a Math teacher. I think that I am on the right tracks.
Mr Jean N. KW. Teacher of Mathematics.
The effects of Phosphenic Mixing on education are wonderful. I have developed my memory greatly. I remember a lesson that I have learnt a month ago as if I had learnt it only 5 minutes ago.
As you have instructed, I have used the game of Chess as a theme for Phosphenic Mixing. I have noticed that everything does become clearer. The effect of mixing a theme with the phosphenes is quite obvious: a greater clarity of mind is developed…
M Louis M.
I am a 17 years old boy and I contacted you last fall. Meanwhile, I have practiced Phosphenic Mixing and noticed that many aspects of my life were improved, my studying in particular.
I have noticed that this process has allowed me to progress, as much in my studies (I am a high school student) as in my everyday life.
A while ago, I have taken an oral exam in French that I had prepared with the phosphenes: the result was beyond my expectations. Indeed, I only had to read the text of the exam once and my thinking process started: the commentary of the text I had to draft came by itself. I have also observed the effects on sleep: for a few years, I have been suffering from insomnia; I would wake up during the night and only could go back to sleep a couple hours later. Since I have started to practice Phosphenism, I can sleep the entire night without interruption!
I can also say that the method has improved my eyesight: I have worn glasses since the age of 12 and I have noticed a sharp improvement.
Phosphenism corresponds completely to what I expected. Indeed, this method of development of mental capacities does not make the individual dependent. On the contrary, it allows one to awaken their possibilities, while leaving them free to choose which exercise is best suited.
Phosphenism has truly made me see life under a different light and has allowed me to abandon the insignificant things that were clogging my life. It has opened my eyes to the true questions that all young people should ponder.
In the domain of education, it has brought me a greater concentration, improved my memory, increased my ideas and my capacity for assimilation. Moreover, it has clarified my mind by driving away the preconceived notions and irrelevances that had started to crowd it because of reading books and magazines that only exploit people’s naivety and credulity.
Isabelle R. Student.
From the first session, I noticed a considerable change in all the children and teenagers I worked with. In very simple terms, I explain to them what source they will tap into in order to get out of their difficulties at school. Then, I ask them to practice Mixing for three quarters of an hour. Their facial expressions change, from grumpy or timid, they become alive. Their verbal expression flows, with a spark of interest in their eyes. Some would say ‟this is great!”, others ‟this is fun!”, but all want to practice again.
For some of them, the results are dazzling. After a single session, Aurelien memorized three months worth of geography lessons that he had left aside, as he could not and did not want to learn them. He had come to me as a last resort: he had a test the next day. I did something with him that can be considered absurd: doing so much work with a kid that was completely unfamiliar with Mixing. A few days later, his dumbfounded teacher gave him the highest mark! A couple days later, I explained to him the arithmetical principle of division with the help of the phosphenes and, the next day, he obtained an A, something that had never happened to him!
Elise, who had been treated for two and a half years for a speech disorder, has progressed tremendously after 6 sessions: for the seventh session, she was radiant with joy, she arrived brandishing her exercise book, on which was written her teacher’s evaluation: ‟Spectacular progress in spelling and writing. With my encouragement”.
With smaller children, the results are even quicker, if one judges by their drawings. They are immediately larger, more detailed, and contain a lot more color.
With teenagers, the results are more progressive. Nevertheless, the three children I worked with that experienced difficulties, did in the end pass on to the next class. Such hope! The most important fact being that drive that the children suddenly develop, a drive to struggle with their problems, to accept them without panic, discouragement or revolt and to move forwards with patience and tenacity.
Mrs Evelyne D. French teacher.
After practicing Phosphenism every day, I have noted that my sleep patterns are now more regular (I do not suffer from insomnia any more) and that I also enjoy more physical and mental vitality in the morning.
My dreams have become full of color, with sharper images and relate situations that provide me with a better understanding of the situations themselves or of the behavior of the persons that are present in the dream.
I have also obtained an improvement in memorization, both visual and auditory, in the artistic domain, a fact that has helped me in my profession and has allowed me to approach various roles with a larger artistic and creative ability.
Enjoying a greater nervous resistance, makes one feel above the others or, more precisely, protected from certain psychological attacks, and allows one to be more sociable with their workmates. Finally, I have noticed that people are more keen to work with me.
Mrs Françoise B.
I have noticed that my capacity for work at school has improved and that I appreciate more certain activities that used to put me off. At the same time, my capacity for organization, memorization and creativity has developed, allowing me to increase considerably my level.
I am attending the first year of university (having taken a three-year break off studies), the beginning has been difficult. During the first semester, I barely got average grades. That period coincided with my discovery of Phosphenism. It was such a joy, during the second semester, to see my grades improving considerably, allowing me to access directly the second year of studies.
My apprehension of exams has disappeared, I am not stressed any more, I am confident in my capacities. I do not lose courage when facing difficult subjects. On the contrary, I enjoy more associations of ideas, I remember the lessons much better, to the point that it seems that I have them under my eyes. I have become much more driven, more ‟positive”, as I know that I will always find a way to solve the difficulties I am facing. I used to find it difficult to concentrate on matters that do not appeal to me. Now, on the contrary, I am eager to discover new things.
Phosphenism has allowed me to solve many problems at school. Consequently, it is very useful for a student.
P. B. Student.
For more than 15 years, I have used Phosphenic Mixing. I am been convinced by the results to such an extend that I have taught it very early to my daughter…
Mrs Colette G.
I am satisfied by Dr Lefebure’s method and I would like to thank Mrs Colette G. who taught Phosphenism to my daughter, in primary school. I have mainly observed an improved capacity for memorization. She is also less unstable and her results at school are better.
Mrs Solange G. Primary school teacher.
Let me give you news of Sebastien (…) He has progressed a lot at school, he is more mature and also more self-confident. He now considers finishing high school. That is quite a new development for him and that can be explained by the fact that it has become easier for him to memorize, and that studying and doing his homework take a lot less time.
I have witnessed the benefits brought by the method in different domains: in the evening, before going to sleep, a session of Mixing helps falling asleep quicker and also helps relaxing. Sleep is more refreshing, dreams are more frequent.
During the day, a session helps unwinding after an effort but also after a vexation. There is, without a doubt, a regularization, an harmonization of energies.
Mrs Chantal N.
Having applied the method during remedial classes and having noted a distinct improvement in marks, I have introduced it in my class. Despite a bit of reluctance at the start, the pupils quickly became eager to practice with the method. Introducing Phosphenism to them is the best thing I have done for them.
Miss Isabelle R. Teacher
I have three children who practice the exercises with me, Thomas, 3, Sandrine, 6 and Anais, 8. The oldest has got good results at school and expresses interest in various subjects, even some that put me off, like grammar. She benefits from much intuition and precision in her work. Her handwriting has also evolved, becoming prettier and easier to read. She understands the work she does with the phosphenes and enjoys it. I am very pleased to have opened the door to the inner world for my children and that they are developing the intelligence that I sadly lacked at their age.
For a week, I had been working on a computer software under ACCESS2 and I was trying to find an error that eluded me. Instead of taking a break, I decided to practice Phosphenism for 10 minutes, without any particular goal. I went back to my PC and something extraordinary took place: I found the error in three minutes, thanks to the phosphenes!!!
I have noticed that, since I have started practicing Phosphenism, every time my pupils are agitated, I simply need to visualize them in a bubble and practice lateral sways mentally for a few moments and they tend to calm down and be more concentrated.
I have also noticed that, for the past year, my pupils come to confide in me more often. It is as if a kind of complicity has developed between them and me. It is the same with my colleagues. I have the feeling that we relate more.
When I use the phosphenes during my lessons, the pupils show more interest and are always surprised when the bell rings.
Here are several changes that have taken place in my life since I have started practicing Phosphenism.
I have had antagonistic relations with my 11-year-old son. I have been visualizing him in the phosphene for the past month. The improvement of our relationship was sudden and spectacular. On the first day, he came and cuddled without any apparent reason, something he very rarely did.
I still practice that exercise of visualization and we get along perfectly.
A little bit afterwards, I decided to practice the same exercise with my husband and his attitude towards my preoccupations changed… Another consequence of the practice of Phosphenism is a change of attitude in my life.
I feel disengaged from materialistic things like money, clothes, holidays. And, finally, I feel less angry and I am more patient with my child.
Phosphenism is truly great for studying. I have used it successfully in that domain. It is a little bit like cheating, but it is allowed! The lessons that I have studied with the phosphenes really appear as mental images during the exams.
Learning with the phosphenes is real pleasure. Personally, I project the phosphene on the lesson as it is explained in the book: ‟Phosphenic Mixing Applied to Education”.
That book is a must-have
I use Phosphenic Mixing applied to education and Synchrophony with my three daughters (16 – 14 and 9). The youngest has learnt a poem in 20 minutes and is able to recite it with the right intonation without having to read it again.
The oldest learns her lessons while blocking her ears (Acouphenic Mixing) and by reciting them aloud. She has realized that she can work faster than ever before.
The cadet who has had major health problems listens to the tracks of Synchrophony on her mp3 player. She seems to have more joie-de-vivre, a greater drive to communicate and is integrated better at school. All this seems so promising.
I am so pleased with the results. I am following evening classes to become an executive. I have obtained an A thanks to the phosphenes.
I am a foreign student following a course to become a tax inspector. In the beginning, my studies were going quite well but, after three months, the rhythm of the lessons intensified. I also experienced difficulties concentrating, as 60% of the content of the training would be useless once I would get back to my country, a fact that made me lose motivation. Nevertheless, I was expected to get at least average marks in order to validate the training course. It is then that I had the idea to try the method of alternating hearing. I purchased the Synchrophony box set and I applied it.
– After practicing for just three days, my concentration increased dramatically.
– After a week, I could remain attentive for longer periods and subjects that used to put me off became much more attractive. Consequently, it became much easier to memorize these lessons.
– I also noticed that I have developed a greater mental stamina and that I memorize much quicker when I study my lessons.
– On a personal level, I have become more calm and less sensitive and I have developed much more personal initiative.
I now continue the training course with joy and serenity.
Thanks to these results, I have launched into the other aspects of the practice of Phosphenism, as I find the spiritual aspect also very interesting and I am trying to access higher states of consciousness.
Thanks to Dr Lefebure and his spiritual heir for the diffusion of Phosphenism.
After reading Dr Lefebure’s book ‟Phosphenic Mixing Apllied to Education” with much interest, I have used the elements I found inside to initiate my children to the practice of ‟Phospshenic Mixing”. These exercises have achieved results that were unhoped for.
With a profound gratitude, I thank Dr Lefebure for the beneficial action of his techniques on my children. In the domain of mental retardation, I have noticed that the practice of Phosphenism increases sensitivity and produces a more sociable, open character. Aggressiveness and irritability diminish after practicing several sessions of Mixing and it is with much satisfaction that one notices the perseverance and the application with which the backward children practice the exercises.
The sways produce a cerebral rejuvenation on retarded persons. The energy produced by the brain increases. Consequently, thoughts have more rhythm, thus increasing cerebral activity.
Mrs Michele P. Former educator.
… After reading ‟Phosphenic Mixing Applied to Education”, I have started to practice Phosphenism and to introduce it to my clients. I shall tell you about a very positive result: it is an 8-months-old baby who was brought to me for reeducation and who could not yet hold his head. During the first session, I proceeded with a complete check-up and then advised his parents to make him do phosphenes with the pocket lamp. When they came back, 8 days later, for the next session, I was very surprised. Not only the child could hold his head, but he could also trigger reactions in his chest!
The parents then told me that their baby asked for the lamp as soon as he would wake up and went to sleep with it. I have been able to note a genuine development of his psycho-motivity, of such ease that one could say that it is a true metamorphosis!
Mrs Marc G. Physical therapist.
I must thank you for the exercises of Phosphenic Mixing, I get so much benefit from them: I enjoy peak physical and mental form, no fatigue and an unbelievable optimism.
Mr Edmond D.
By improving the perception of our own ‟self”, and trying to perceive the ‟self” of others, it is certain that communication improves. Little by little, one realizes that it becomes possible to ‟feel” the others and to ‟describe” them rapidly. That process could be called: improved intuition.
I enjoy an improvement in physical resistance: I already needed very little sleep (5 to 6 hours a night), now only 3 to 5 hour suffice for me to be fully refreshed. My nervous resistance having increased, it is possible for me to sustain stress for longer, even if it is mixed with intense physical efforts. My resistance to disease also seems to have increased.
