I’ve just had a metaphysical experience that I want to share with my readers with some caution. I was induced into a trance on Sunday night, and it came with the first opportunity to get a good look at my own astral projection. I had the opportunity to see the energies that are surrounding me as well as the influences from other people made concrete and almost palpable. It helped me gain a better understanding of myself and my purpose in the world that I am currently living in.

It started out as a circle of four women burning two wands of holy stick, reciting prayers and anointing themselves with florid water. There were candles amongst the core of the group, and behind each person was a burning wand of holy stick. We were under the first quarter of the moon. At first we laughed to ease the tension, then collectively grew more serious as the ritual progressed. As the trance started, I felt the strange compression twisting and pulling simultaneously, and I laid down to experience it.

During the trance, I felt grounded and connected to all of my surroundings. My senses were exalted and I had a clear look at the emotions and the ‘composure’ of my ‘higher self’, for lack of a better word. I got to see the energy as it flowed within my soul. I was presented with mundane situations and with hopes as well as problems. I saw my romantic partner as well a person I have recently lost touch with. It was impressive to me knowing that I have built up my own obstacles and the concerns that I am dealing with at present time.

After the experience, I was regaining consciousness bit by bit. I felt calm and level-headed, and all the rage that I had been harboring prior to that night had dissolved. The feeling of being connected to the now and of understanding the reason for the circumstances surrounding me was both reassuring and second nature at that point. On the drive home, I felt creative and free-spirited. I was even in a good mood, when earlier during that day I was lugging around drama and rage as if I was actually feeding off it. My mind was clearer, and I found myself weighing thoughts of solutions to my ‘problems’. In current reality, those ‘problems’ seem silly to me now, and I have a brighter perspective on the situations that I had felt I was stuck in.

What I deduce from this whole deal is that it is important to stay connected with one’s ‘higher self’ in order to stay grounded. Experiences like these help to understand why the present situations are as they are, and they also help us no to blow those situations out of proportion. A really nice benefit from the trance is the realization that whatever is tormenting one person at current time will come to pass. It really is true, that they say… Everything transforms, nothing stays the same. This too shall pass kind of deal! It gave me the assurance to deal with my matters with an optimistic point of view, rather than just floating through the situations, and through my own life by extension. I have encountered people who don’t really seem to be there at all, just because they’re not quite living within themselves. For example, people with addictions or with very little presence are said to be living outside of their bodies, with the possibility that their aura is also not surrounding them and protecting them. They are unprotected.

As I experience these things, I become less and less of a skeptic. If any of my readers has had a similar experience, I’d like to know! Artwork is © Luke Brown from Spectral Eyes. Go check him out!
