Please excuse the grandiose title of the thread but thought it might go someway to explaining the general idea of what I am trying to describe with
this post. I am wondering if any other ATS members has ever experienced a similar 'feeling'. Every now and again, and seemingly at random times in
my life, when I am looking into a mirror I suddenly become very aware of my self and start to feel like I am not real or almost like I am outside
myself. This is often accompanied by a strange sensation that everything i.e. myself and reality is an illusion and almost like my consciousness has
leapt from me and is staring back. I sometimes don't recognise my reflection when this is happening... It's quite unnerving when it happens and
always requires me to shake myself out of it and leaves me feeling very strange for some time afterwards.
Anybody have any experience with this and/or an explanation as to what might be happening?
Thank for the link, which is interesting as the only other times I have felt similar feelings is when practising exclusive concentration meditation,
and sometimes when having a Sleep Paralysis episode.
And it's nice to know I'm not alone in having this experience (not that I thought I would be.) Have asked friends on some occasions but none
understand what I am describing.
Do you realize now how magnificent you are as you observe your self from the form of your SELF that your self is observing?
It's our holographic universe giving you little hints and peeks.
We've created our selves to observe our selves as we maneuver this 3D realm. So you seeing a new landscape as you look in the mirror, is just you
beginning to wake up to the fact that you are multi dimensional ... and this human portion is just one aspect of that.
I have often experienced this exact phenomenon. Actually, about 50% of the time I look in a mirror this happens. I've always tried to "follow" the
sensation to see what would happen, but I always "snap" back into the present moment.
It is like you are looking at some machine that you are operating and it is not really you, kinda like your brain, soul or what ever it is, is taking
a look at the real world and it knows that your body is not the real you.
I just look away and keep on doing regular things and it goes away, I will check that link for further exploration on this.
