Larissa M's Experience

Experience description:   

I had been lying on the treatment table for some time.  The session began near my feet and worked up towards the head. No physical contact only hands moving in the aura.

The practitioner got to my head, and did some work there, then moved to the space approx. 30-40 cm above the vertex of my head (I can only guess as my eyes were still closed).

At that point I started to leave my body, and I wanted to tell her 'oh I'm leaving my body' but it happened so quickly. It felt like I was drawn up through a narrow aperture, and then 'pop' - my head / upper half sort of popped right through and up into this enormous vast dark space, a place of such magnitude I couldn't find words - but a tremendously peaceful place. It was directionless, encompassing, vast, and incredibly comforting all at the same time.

I don't recall how long I stayed there like that. No messages, no lights, no sounds, just feeling that I was part of this enormity. 

At the end of the session I relayed my experience which got a very delighted response from my practitioner.  I felt physically more present, and bigger, like my spirit had more room or at least was taking up more space in my person.

It was a wonderful feeling and experience that has not repeated itself, either spontaneously or during other healing sessions and I don't meditate.  I would very much like to experience it again though.
