Basically for those that don't know:
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. To the common person, that can sound like a mouthful of unhelpful gibberish. ASMR sometimes
goes by the loose nickname of "brain orgasms". Very simply put, these names describe a tingly sensation around the head and scalp, caused by various
triggers. Many people are unaware that such a phenomenon exists. Others experience the sensation regularly, but have no idea it possesses a defined
title. Not much is known about this occurrence, but research is ongoing and ever-growing.
Basically it's like a tingling sensation which is genuinely one of the most amazing feelings you can ever experience. Apparently it doesn't happen
to everyone but I'd like to raise a particular question.
Could ASMR be a spiritual experience?
One thing I've noticed is that I'm the only one out of all my friends who experiences ASMR, and also the only one who's interested in Lucid
Dreaming, Astral Projection, etc. Is there a link? I think so!
If you take a look at the community which is currently growing rapidly of people viewing ASMR videos on YouTube ( I'll post some below ) , you'll
notice these same people are interested in meditation, lucid dreams, astral projection etc. I can't see how this can be coincidence
Now some of you may experience ASMR, some of you may not. But below are some trigger videos, everyone has their own triggers. Personally some of mine
are: watching people type on the computer, watching people do something they are not good at (strange I know), scratching surfaces (common one) and
many others. I figure out more as time goes on really.
Some videos: (don't know how to embed sorry)
Basically just search for asmr on YouTube, the resources available are endless one good channel is TheWaterWhispers.
Once you've checked them out tell me if you feel anything and if you think it is some sort of spiritual experience, because that is what it feels
like to me and I haven't seen this theory before so I decided to start my own discussion.
