Altered states of consciousness

Greetings people

Recalling experiences that I have had during extreme altered state of consciousness (not drug induced) I was aware of the intensity of colors, that blazed in living harmonious vibrations. Everything sang and I could hear and fell the caress of the sound of smell the taste of music and colors beyond present perception.

I knew then that I had never come remotely close to knowing what an almost infinite precise instrument my whole body really was. It is not only the brain that perceives reality; each cell is individual aware parts of my body. It was possible to switch to seeing with my ears, tasting with my eyes, listening with my sense of taste, smell and feel. Every atom of you physical body harmonizes together, as an intelligent member of your composite living being.

We have never learned how to utilize the amazing sensory organ that is our entire body. In this state of awareness I could stand still and hear the chirp of a billion birds which I knew was quantum particle flashing in the mind of God. They sing the song of existence and creation and we are deaf to their beautiful song and its real meaning. I became both the creator and the creation

People became open books to me and I had to close my mind against the cacophony of meaningless babble, until I could filter it out and hear the beauty of glorious minds all around me, both human and animal. I had to retreat in shock and horror from the dark bleakness that sometimes entered my mind. And learn to accept and embrace all that is beautiful and loving about our beautiful blue water planet and the unimaginable wonder of the universe and the super universe from out of which it was born.

My body, mind, soul and spirit as stilled my inner being to really hear, feel, see taste smell and merge with the Super consciousness, began to expand in such unimaginable exhilaration that my finite mind and self embraced all of existence and I saw and understood everything just like god did. My ego was gone and I could no longer separate my awareness and personality than from god himself. Indeed I had for all purposes amalgamated with and become god.

In what we call our normal waking state we are really sleeping in a dormant hibernating like way. But with practice one can awaken to a much greater degree of sensitivity than is the norm for many of us. I have always been extremely psychic all my life and nothing like the money grabbing frauds one finds now giving false reading all over the internet. What I perceive is true and I can prove it if you like, Remote viewing, telepathy, and observing future and past events. Profound Near death events and out of body phenomenon

I have also plunged the depths of darkness', despair desolation and for anyone to tell me there is a hell worse than this in a great offence to me. I saw hell and heaven.

But maybe we must travel through the dark valleys of utter hopeless like I did; to really relish and savor the unbelievable glory that awaits us. Before we exit this life we should have reached a place of contentment, peace and love.

Once perfected the transition into other dimensions, parallel universes becomes easy and smooth exciting a wonder beyond word

Like a great ceaseless holiday that embraces so much beautiful unknowns that the mind is filled with the essences and fragrances of new lands, planets and universes, both physical and spiritual way out beyond any wildest speculations of our usual mundane earthly life

I hope this little essay is of interest. This in based on actual events and experiences that are as real as your own body and mind

Alan

@Alan McDougall,
^^^ What's the difference whether your 'altered state' was drug induced or not?
Sounds like an exciting trip.
Peace

@Alan McDougall,
The altered state I mentioned were the results of years of practice They were subjectively true and not drug induced.

I did not really put this up as a topic of discussion ,but just for those interested in this type of phenomenon

@Alan McDougall,
Food and/or sleep deprivation, meditation techniques are a couple of ways to accomplish this without drugs. Alan, I think I have been some of the places you have been; it can be beautiful, or it can be agony...I have also written about a few of my own out-of-body experiences on this forum.

Are you a synesthete?

@Aedes,
Neurological synesthesia is involuntary and automatic, not to mention that such perceptions are consistent.

Alan, do you perceive things as you describe above regularly, or does this sort of perception only hit at certain times, perhaps while you practice?

I wonder if he is rationally appropriating things that are at base involuntary -- a locus of control issue.

Sounds like the only difference is egoic; "Look what I earned with hard work!" If I can get to the 'same place' after 10 minutes from popping a pill, ego tells you that either you have done something 'wrong' or 'the hard way', or that the experience of others must be a lie. Most if not all of the traditional mystical techniques are designed to alter the chemical environment in the brain. They manifest an abundance of CO2 and a depletion of O2; incessant chanting or prayer, ecstatic dancing, fasting, pain, standing on one foot, whatever... all bring CO2 (chemical) rich brain environment. (See; Huxley, A., 'Doors of Perception') This environment inhibits our inhibitors of what we perceive and what gets filtered out (by the brain). A little cognitive 'reducing valve'. Your 'years of practice' or someone else's 'entheogen' both allow that 'reducing valve' to open and allow 'more' into consciousness.

This sentence makes no sense. But it does cry of egoic content...

Quote:

Another nonsensical sentence.
Everything posted here is a topic of critical thoughtful examination and conversation. Need I remind you of where you are?
And "this type of phenomenon" is common amongst entheogenic practitioners who would readily recognize your; "of the intensity of colors, that blazed in living harmonious vibrations. Everything sang and I could hear and fell the caress of the sound of smell the taste of music and colors beyond present perception."
As a reminder, though, you actually did offer it for discussion by mentioning it here;

Anyone like me who has been on army maneuvers and have been deprived of sleep will tell you that hallucinations are quit common.I have had to go up to them and wave my arms through these apparitions to disprove them.On the other hand i have had experiences that for me defy explanations..

Nameless - are you really suggesting that meditative practice is relatively more egocentric than drug use? Sheesh! Have you ever used psychedelics (rhetorical, of course)?

No, I'm saying that someone who has only 'experienced' meditative practice, and discounts the entheogenic 'experience' of others, is egotistical; "what is 'right' for me is the only 'right'" type of thing. That is what I'm saying.
Me 'right', you 'wrong' (if different than me) = ego.
Capisce'?

@Alan McDougall,
Sleep deprivation is a very good way to go, as well as not eating for a while.

The tasting music, or tasting colors etc are scientific facts and not just my own experience. many people have this sort of altered senses all the time. But to some of them it is a burden.

Our whole body is aware even down to the cellular level, People who have received organ transplants often feel the memories of the donors. As if their DNA has memory at the cellular level and this somehow leaks into the receiptiant

You have found the doors to other perceptions, Any thing else is in your head as an individual. Cool stuff.

@Alan McDougall,
Joe,

David makes some interesting points. But I differ on some. God is God and we are his creations.

Not all people are able to melt into higher states of consciousness, some of us are just more highly sensitive.

Take the recent Olympic games. Usain Bolt a sprinter of phenomenon outerworldly ability. One could train for a thousand years and never come even remotely close. He was born with this huge ability you cant manufacture it.

But everyone can run , some better and some worse, and if we train we will all go faster and further.

I was born with an abnormal brain, and I learned to control it after years. I was psychic from the time I was a small boy and could always see other dimension invisible to most people around me.

I used to frighten and perplex my parents, relatives , school friends and later my work colleagues with knowledge about them that only they knew about.

Like David, I have had numerous Out Of Body experiences and in addition a profound near death experience.

David sets himself up as an authority on these unusual abilities , but he is not and is speaking subjectively like we all do.

He is but one facet of the great diamond of truth

Take Care

Alan
