Not clearly of course, but everything was still visible.

Earlier today, I yawned, and in the process, closed my eyes. Everything was bright. Not sun gleaming off the hood of a waxed car bright, but bright none the less. Not only was it bright, but I could see. I could make out distinct shapes, I could pour myself a glass of water, I could walk down stairs. I couldn't distinguish colors though. Everything was a tint of yellow, more or less. Liquids were brighter, and television shows, or the computer monitor were so bright, I couldn't even look at them.

I know what your thinking, "He must have been looking at something bright, then the images stuck on his retina". That is not the case. The "Insight" lasted for roughly 20 minutes, until it just faded out.

It's not a medical condition, or something wrong with my eyelids, because I could put a blindfold on, and still do all the aforementioned tasks.

Thoughts?

Wow thats pretty awesome.

Personally, i would venture to say that your consciousness that you usually have throughout the day wasnt awoken yet, as you said you barely woke up. So it leads me to guess that your all-knowing sub-consciousness was probably in full swing.

Thats my opinion though. I cant really help, thats an odd case i've never read about.....

It was about noon, so I was wide awake. It was odd indeed. I looked on the net, to see if I could find anything like this, and I couldn't. It's interesting though, that it was completely spontaneous.

I've had similar experiences. I simply tend to think of it as seeing with my third eye.

Oh ok then , lol i kinda sped-read that.

Thats even weirder......if i were you, i would count myself lucky to of experianced that. IDK what else to say, it's weird that it happened spontaneously; you dont remember anything like that happening before? Do you have an unusually higher sixth sense of sorts than others? Only thing i can say, is that its pretty cool. Or you have psychic powers; one of the two.

I can't think of anything like this that's happened before. I used to practice PK and meditation, but I stopped as of a month or two ago. The meditation could've increased my awareness, but since It was awhile ago, I have my doubts about that.

Next time, have a friend put a blindfold on you and ride a bicycle up and down the street, weaving between parked cars.

Have him video you riding with (presumably) no eyes.

Might get you on a TV magic show with Criss Angel, you never know.

If it happens again, I wouldn't do something so stupid. I don't fully understand what happened, so I won't do anything like that until I look into it. Even then, I was able to concentrate it, I wouldn't associate a genuine gift with a magician. Everyone would shrug me off as a fake.

I agree with you. I have done this many times in a pitch black room. I could see my dresser and everything else around me. It sounds like you may have astral projected too since it lasted so long. I have also done that and things weren't really clear.

You were seeing out of your third eye. Everyone has a spiritual eye that is called the third eye. Sometimes by certain events cause the eye to open. It can be very weird or scary at first. With training you can learn to control it. The yellow you were seeing is what your spirit was experiencing at the time. Yellow means Optimism, cheerfulness, success, generosity, satisfaction. The color yellow also does this; Stimulates all organs, increases energy levels, strengthens the immune system; removes inhibitions and fear of relationships.

When people yawn they release bad energy and also can sometimes lose control both spiritually and physically. My guess is when you yawn something was triggered and your third eye was opened.

Congrats. This is a good thing. Now you will be able to experience more intense spiritual things.

Actually it is your picture memory kicking in. It will usually happen in a familiar atmosphere the greatest. If you have a great picture memory or even an okay one, then when you close your eyes you will recognize the same atmosphere you were in last. If you happen to visit a new atmosphere, try it and I will guarantee you will see the same thing when you close your eyes but you will miss out on a few details.

Im not so sure you know, as it has happened to me in unfamiliar places.

I have done this many times.Look around the room in an unfamiliar place and I am sure you will miss a few objects. It is your memory that draws the pictures in your brain. I tried this exercise in my communications class:
Take about 2-3 minutes to look around the room and then close your eyes and start naming everything in the room in front of a friend. You will name what you remember and what your brain draws in your head.

If you were to walk into a room with your eyes closed and you see everything then that means you are using a third eye.

you were sleepwalking. this happened to me as well when I was about 18 years old at disneyland.

I feel asleep at the bus stop and was dreaming of walking on the street at 5am and crossing the street. turns out I was not dreaming at all, but sleepwalking. everything looked blurry and I could see everything. it was the only other time I did that and I never want to do it again, because I was crossing the streets of LA sleepwalking at 5am and I could have been killed.

Of course you wouldn't do anything like that, because this was not a real event, and it would be foolish to do something specifically concrete and expect that it would work.

I agree with Jedi - a sleepwalking event or an illusion that was not based in reality.

Still a pretty cool experience. Thanks for reporting it.

I am very short-sighted (have been since childhood) - plus I have severe astigmatism.

A few years ago, I had a 3 gram capsule of melatonin before I went to bed.
As I switched off the light and closed my eyes, I immediately realised that I was able to see the phone on the gueridon - which was in the corner opposite to my bed, some 5 or 6 metres from my bed - with extreme clarity. It was dark, of course, but the outlines of the table and the phone, and every single detail, were sharply visible.

"Wow! Did I forget to remove my lenses?!" I thought - or rather, I would have thought, but the thought was too fleeting to even formulate it in my mind. Because then, after a few milliseconds, I realised that not even with my lenses I would've been able to see as sharply as that - and another millisecond later it hit me that my eyes were CLOSED...

I opened my eyes, almost sure that it was a strange prelude to a dream or something (that's the eternal skeptic on the lookout in me : )) - but my head was turned exactly in the right direction. And if my eyes were as sharp as a lynx's - instead of being short-sighted and astigmatic - I would have been able to see exactly what I saw with my eyes closed. Even the "light" - or rather, the quality of darkness - was the same.

That was no "prelude to a dream".
And it didn't really surprise me. I knew all along that such things were possible.

I don't know whether the melatonin had anything to do with it.
Possibly - because it was the first time in my life that I had taken it.
But - so far - it never happened again, melatonin or no melatonin.

Yes I agree, I believe the OP's third eye was busy. Mine is going all the time. Like a video, so I can see two things, if that makes sense? One through my eyes and the other through my third eye. Either way, it happens once and then you will want it to happen again.


I believe the third eye is supposed to be active all the time.

Well, I hadnt heard of this. Yawning helps to stimulate the brain, gives a boost of O2 to the brain.

The only thing I have heard re yawning is if you are drinking alcohol. If you are drunk and yawn, you have to be careful as some energies can move on in to take over the party.


This is a good thing.


Yes it is a good thing. All the best with it!

Well I have two different thought types.#1 is eyeless sight Russian girl sees with fingers, with subtype of close to home light/slight OOBE...#2 is that brain injury software-type function they call confabulation, where the patient through some lesion is technically unable to perceive (say, things on their right) but the internal narrator doesn't notice consciously that deficit and instead makes up what would be there usually and somehow quickly glosses over contradictions with a clear conscience ( this is not to imply that you are delusional or defective, it's a recognized brain function and could no doubt occur for unknown transient reasons). I myself had a transient ability improvement once, so I believe you easily.

It's actually pretty simple guys. when you sleepwalk, you have your eyes closed but you can still see. using your mind. I did it and I was scared as heck doing it and when I woke up I couldn't believe I had actually been doing that.
