So i came across an article on X (twitter) relating to a CIA document that was titled "Analysis and Assessment of Gateway Process" - It caught my interest so i read a couple pages and came across the word "Kundalini" - It referenced a book and i googled this, which led me to a woman that described meditation, breathing techniques and consciousness in fairly simple terms. So.....
Laying on the couch in the lounge, the family is in bed, t.v. is going in the background, i just decided to give it a go and i just stared at my feet whilst laying back, large slow breathes in through my nose and out theough my mouth.
What was interesting was how the woman described certain 'steps' of the process - and how i felt these steps occuring as i was having this experience. I focused immensely on my feet for some reason 🤣 when i closed my eyes i was far too focused on sound, when they were open i drowned the sound out with concentration on one point. I felt my feet tingle, almost goosebumps but almost pins and needles, this felt to build up and slowly come down my shins, i was trying to just allow this to happen but as soon as i thought about it - it was like it would begin to go away, or instead of coming towards me, go away. I didn't feel like my eyes were closing but i could feel the room getting darker or just more contrasted. But something was certainly happening, at one stage after that i felt the sensation right up to my knees and was thinking that this was the 'energy' the woman had referred to. I started to feel very hmmm away? Or certainly not where i was 20 minutes ago....
Then the weirdest bit, my body temperature must have been rising because i was sweating but not aggressively, just really warm, comftorable, still breathing long slow breathes back to back. Then my outwards breathes started to hum quite noticeably, a comftorable and naturally occuring low tone on exhale. It felt good, the room got pretty dark and i just went with it....Then as im still staring at my feet i notice in my peripheral my cat come from around the hallway and sit at the door way, he looked black completely. I never even made eye contact with him, my eyes were just gone - focused but far from trying to focus.
The feeling i got when movement was introduced into my field view was that of ecstasy, that build up i felt sitting below my knees just blasted like electric goosebumps right up body but also right throughout my head, spine and down wards. And oh my god was that "a moment" that sensation lasted less than ten seconds but it was amazing, almost scary, i had tears in my eyes but extremely euphoric at the same time.
Still just stearing at my feet 😆 The contrast of black goes see through and engulfs my entire field of view, im seeing blobs (also see through), shapes and moving objects - all transparent and they are moving and floating and changing shape and size, i felt like i could almost play with them or move them but without knowing how, i seen a larger goldish see through glowing shape like a funny shaped egg with bumps around its sides and then it all just seemed to slowly fade from there, gradually, but i think it was down to my shear amazement that i had just had some pretty far fetched experience by looking at my toes whilst lying on my couch at an Air bNb 🤣 I was starting to really wow about the whole thing.
I didnt know this was actually a thing, never thought anything of meditation - thought it was for vegans, hippies and yoga instructors. I'm a bloke, a proper, kiwi bloke that almost goes against the grain to even do something like this let alone join a forum on the spot so i can quickly share my experience. I thought of waking my wife to tell her "Love, love, wake up - I just went somewhere else by breathing funny and focusing on nothing" but that would probably end in pointing me of the direction of the couch 🤣🤣🤣
Anyways, ill read some your stories now. Hope ya found mine interesting, the cat coming into the room and what felt like "unlocking" something was by far the most amazing experience i have had in a long long time - which is really weird right.
