Marge Experience

Experience description:   

Was a time when I was getting into walking around alone and meditating daily. I caught the first bus home one day, and after a bit of sitting, I was seeing from the top of the bus down at all the passengers, including myself. It felt like being a part of the air everyone shares. I have always randomly had lucid dreams, and astral projections, it was that same sort of light feeling. But I had never had this while being conscious, with my eyes open. I then thought about how I wasn't in my physical self and stared wondering about my breathing, if I stopped would I pass out and be stuck out here? before I freaked out too fast, I remembered that feeling that everything is going to be okay and saw I was still functioning, I reminded myself to enjoy it. I can't remember at what point I came back in. It was probably not very long at all. I've always been curious about the senses, so it's an experience I'm grateful for. When depression starts to sink in again, I go back to that feeling of being air, take a deep breath.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? Yes smoked one marijuana's, but I smoke daily and never had this experience

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain the mixture of void and fullness at the same time. all explanations seem to have the same description, but the feeling is more than words. maybe that no one can really answer it.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? No

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? awake, sitting on the bus, headphones on. then, I was above that.

Was the experience dream like in any way? feels like astral projection, when you start "flying" around

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes my body was sitting, while the sensation I had was of air, "spirit". when I remembered my physical body needs to breathe and was wondering how do I control both things, the light feeling reminded me, we breathe without thinking.

What emotions did you feel during the experience? confused, to euphoric to confused again, then just enjoying being a part of it.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? I don't remember if it was silent and I couldn't hear anything or I could hear everything so it all sounded like one. I was more focused on how I got up there.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices? since then, with a bit other changes, have settled down more than had before.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? Uncertain I have always been curious about a lot of unexplainable, this just made my goals more open towards that area. and as I accepted setting goals, I have slowly accumulated bit by bit to help work towards it, even if its just a personal goal so far.

Have you shared this experience with others? Yes a roommate who told me she had felt this also once before. it was her house I was leaving that day it happened to me.

What was the best and worst part of your experience? best part is the light feeling, worst is if the depression hits too hard and I remember it in a different perspective, I see the simplicity of going back to that light. at its best the memory feels like a hug reminding you it will be okay. at worst, its a big safety blanket I want to cover myself in again and never leave. the thin line reminder.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience? No

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes took a short nap during this questionnaire and had a lucid dream. thank you (:
