Many ancient cultures, such the Greeks, Romans, Persians and Celts have had cults dedicated to alcohol, citing it as a mystic connection to the
netherworld. The Greeks and Romans make references of nymphs and satyrs, woodland creatures that become known during drunken orgies. Celts claimed
that fairies becoming visible.
From my experience I’ve found that it is the recovery that I’ve noticed things. Something I’d like to point out is when being ‘hung over’
hypersensitivity is a common symptom. Sensitivity to light, sound and touch, so why not spiritual sensitivity?
On with my account:
I was at my in-laws celebrating a birthday party and had a bit of fun. I made the foolish error of mixing drinks and became pretty ‘smashed.’ My
in-laws directed me to the couch in their lounge room and I went into a drunken slumber.
I awoke at around 4:00 AM with a sudden fearful chill, I felt compelled to keep my eyes closed, but I had dream-like visions of a woman. She was
middle aged, dressed in a loose blue-green night dress, with neck length, light nineteen-nineties permed hair. I knew she was angry at me, I could
feel a cold breath on my face and heard soft foot steps on the ground around me. Suddenly I opened my eyes, heart pounding, and saw nothing. I
immediately left my makeshift bed and went to another room to continue sleeping.
The next morning I told my father in-law of the experience. Rather unsurprised he said, ‘that was the previous owner. Was she dressed in a blue
nightgown?’ Of course I said yes. He explained to me that she hung herself in her bedroom, which before renovating was where the lounge room is. I
was pretty shocked, as before this event I had not given ghosts much consideration. It certainly was not a pleasant experience.
Since my first experience I feel that I’ve noticed things after recovering from intoxication, such as shadow people, outlines of people and flashing
faces in windows etc. I’ve usually put this down to a type of Pareidolia, especially when reading on Wikipedia that the some symptoms of drunkenness
can induce hallucinations.
But maybe these ‘hallucinations’ are actually spiritual sensitivity? What are your thoughts?
