Okay not an actual coma. Let me start at the beginning.
I have recently undergone what some would call a spiritual awakening, or finding "god" or "oneness/the one". I have a different name for this
entity but that is for another thread.
I have always considered myself a spiritual agnostic. I wanted to think there was something more to this universe than what we could see and measure,
but being a scientist at heart I always needed "proof". However I have always been very analytic and would spend much time in deep consideration of
who things around me worked and effected each other. It may some counter intuitive but I have found that this ability to completely lose my self in
thought has helped me to achieve deeper levels of meditation. There have been many informative threads here on ATS on how to heighten your experience
when meditating, so to those authors and participants thank you.
I have found that I meditate best in the shower. It is the only place in my house I can be assured I wont be disturbed, and the rhythmic falling of
the water is very soothing. Now recently I was attempting to meditate but had pulled a muscle earlier in the day and couldn't get my mind past the
discomfort. I adjusted the way i was sitting to alleviate the pain. (I think this was the key). I closed my eyes and resumed my meditation. I clear my
mind by focusing on a point of light i conjure in my minds eye. As I called the light into existence I immediately noticed a difference in how my mind
responded to it. The light seemed to move of its own accord. No matter how much I attempted to focus, the light did not move in the way I was
attempting to move it. I began to feel like I was falling, falling into an endless abyss. And the light seemed to be guiding me. I sat up strait and
snapped open my eyes. My heart was racing. I was both exhilarated and terrified at the same time. I calmed my racing heart and made sure I wasn't
just having a stroke. No numbness, no tingling. No blurred vision or shortness of breath. I seemed to be fine. I decided to try again. I resumed
sitting in the new position. Closed my eyes and conjured the point of light. For the first moment it seemed to be the normal experience, as if I was
in control. Then the point of light began to pulsate, emitting a range of different colors and hues I cant accurately describe. I felt myself begin to
fall. Immediately I wanted to open my eyes and regain control. I focused on controlling my heart beat and breathing. I fought with myself, part of me
wanting to let the light go to wake, the other wanting to remain. Then I found the right string in my mind and just stopped struggling, just let go of
the fear. The last thing I remember was thinking how easy it was to give up all control.
The next thing I know my wife was shaking me pleading for me to wake up. She had come in and found me unconscious, it took five minutes to wake me she
said. I had been in the shower for two and a half hours. The water was ice cold but oddly it felt as if the cold had not begun to effect me until I
woke up. I have no memory of anything after falling and before waking up. I know the concept of lost time in alien abduction cases, maybe this is
something similar however, I in no way think I was abducted. I have done some meditating (not in the shower) on this but remain puzzled. I haven't
attempted to recreate the depth of my experience again but I think I will. I just hope if I take it slow and focus perhaps I can control it.
