I'm not even sure where a thread like this belongs, so I will simply put it here and hopefully get my question answered.
So let me lay out the scenario..
I am laying down in bed and staring at a light fixture in my room that is not turned on. I am just kind of thinking about my daily goings on and not
really expecting anything unusual to happen. Very suddenly I am aware that nothing else in the room is visible EXCEPT the light fixture. It is as if
everything else in the room has been blocked out and it is simply me and this one object.
After this first experience, I have done it mutliple times and can now enter this 'state' in a matter of 30 seconds or so. I have never attempted to
'project' or give myself any kind of suggestion while concentrating on the 'focus' (As I have come to call the object I am focusing on, clever I
Now I guess my question is...
What in the world is going on?
Am I actually doing something I should continue to be interested in, or is there a more mundane answer?
(For those that would like to attempt to duplicate my experience, here are some general practices I go through before trying it.)
1. Cut out a black circle of cloth or paper and tape it to a spot on your wall that is comfortably seen from a laying/sitting down position.
2. Concentrate your eyes on this one spot and do not allow them to waiver.
3. Avoid blinking, but do NOT STOP blinking. If you blink it is very important to continue to concentrate on the image.
If anyone else tries this, please post your results, I am interested in seeing if I am alone in this phenominon.
