This happened to me a few days ago, and I still don't know what to make of it.
Every morning, I take the bus for a one hour ride to my job. Usually, I spend this time listening to music and zoning out. I close my eyes and enjoy
the moment. However, this week, something unusual took place.
I had my eyes closed and was relaxing, when I started feeling a pressure on my head. At first I thought it was a headache, but the pain quickly
subsided and became a background sensation. Then my body began to get numb, with a tingling effect, like a limb with poor circulation, if you get the
picture. This feeling kept getting deeper, but strangely it wasn't unpleasant. I felt really, really good. Then I realised that my senses were
distorted. I was breathing heavy, and my hearing seemed heightened, I could hear all the surrounding noises over the music, distinguish them clearly
and tell where they came from.
And then, I started to feel a pressure on the left side of my body, some sort of light push. I started to turn slowly to the right, rotating my head.
All this time, I didn't open my eyes or try to stop the movement, because I wanted to know where it would lead. I just went with the flow. So I kept
turning until I felt like I was facing the passenger in the opposite row. I realised how stupid I must be looking while doing that, so I opened my
What a shock! I was still facing straight ahead. I hadn't moved an inch! The sensation of turning around, the stretching of my neck, it was all in my
head! But it had felt so real, a physical sensation, I had felt my nerves and muscles moving. There was a dissociation between my self-perception and
my actual position.
I can't put a word on what I experienced. Was it some form of meditation? I've never achieved meditation, so I can't say. Or maybe a trance state?
Did I accidentaly stumble upon something? Or was it all just daydreaming?
