After lurking here in ATS for some moths, i decided to bring out my strange meditation experience to see what you people think it was.
It happened to me 1994 as i was 25yo. A year before i have had my first and so far only brief OOBE and i began to be interested in all kind of
paranormal and related stuff, like a new world had open to me. There was a ad in paper about TM (Transscendic meditation) course and i decided to go
to see what it has to offer.
What they teach is a certain mantra meditation and all went normal for me, until we had our first group meditation. At that day i had just recovered
from flu and wasn't in best physical,mental condition. So when we began meditation, all was normal, i kept repeating my mantra in my thoughts and was
going deeper in that tranquil state, and suddenly i felt pressure in my forehead and a sensation like curtains were drawn apart and i could "see" a
growing buzzing light that was quickly filling my head. I got scared and came awake and my heart was poundindg like crazy.
After a session i went to a teacher in panic for explanation and maybe he thought i was crazy or something, but he never gave me any decent
explanation. After that day i noticed i had a tinnitus (constant ringing in ears), and i have it to day and also i became much more sensitive in many
ways (to sounds for example). I also lost much of my ability to concentrate and i feel like i'm not "all here", like i'm not completely connected
I think i was somehow physically damaged by that phenomena and i quess i will never return "normal", but i can live with it. Anyway, i just like to
hear if anyone else have had similar experience or have some idea what happened.
And as a side note, i think meditation is good thing and don't want to bring fear to it. For me it just didn't suit
And to moderator, i'm not sure if this post belongs to some other forum, sorry.
