Namaste, fellow consciousness explorers!
Those of you familiar with Tom Campbell’s book & lectures on his “My Big TOE” theory will understand what I was trying to accomplish in perceiving a “larger reality”. Here’s a meaningful experience that I had mid-October 2014. As a preface, I will try to abbreviate all phenomena of astral projection, lucid dreaming, etc. as Non Physical Reality (NPR).
It’s common for me to have active energy systems while in the NPR body. The best way I can explain this is that I do a lot of chakra energy meditations & visualizations. In NPR, I can see my own as well as other entities’ chakra system and the general health of that system by exclaiming “Chi” and focusing. In fact, in one experience of NPR, I was able to discern a succubus with this method who was trying to siphon energy into her own system which was missing a few chakra. Unique to my own practice, I fly by energizing the Manipura (solar plexus chakra of willpower). It’s similar to inhaling and focusing on the area, which allows me to lift like a balloon (though infinitely more agile) and then maneuver how I wish.
So, on to the experience. Please excuse my rambling personal insights mixed into the story.
I awoke to vibrations and tried to separate, but was stuck in my physical body, so I relaxed more and made a concentrated mental effort. I projected into a different home/apartment building than my own and using William Buhlman’s coined phrase, I exclaimed “Higher self now!” to ground the experience and open to my true self. This was something I’ve never done before, but I am proficient enough to regularly exclaim “clarity/vividity now” and several other commonly used NPR terms, but had decided that it was worth a try after listening to some of Campbell’s TOE lectures online. As an aside, I believe the throat chakra to be extremely powerful in NPR. It’s rare that speaking my will out loud has not produced my immediate intent or failed to produce any result of some kind.
Reaching out with my mind, I wanted to experience the larger reality and I ended up in a mall-like building made up of several smaller spaces or “shops”. Each with different contents and separate purposes all housed inside a larger building.
This experience lasted for a very long time. It felt even longer than the longest lucid dream I’ve had, which has been significantly long. I’m mid-thirties now, and I’ve been lucid dreaming since childhood, so I can comfortably say that I’ve done this kind of thing for over 25 years. This experience felt like hours, though. It was so long that I became aware of the fact that I might not remember everything, but I just couldn’t end the experience. I wanted to explore.
I’ve never had much trouble getting around in NPR, but in this new, “larger reality” my first attempt was awkward and it took a few tries to figure out how to get around. Basically, the realization of “Oh yeah, I’m still not physical” while in the NPR state was all I needed to ground the situation. I see that awkwardness or obstacle as an adjustment to a deeper, inner level of awareness. I don’t anticipate needing the same adjustment next time, but it was surprising in hind-sight since I don’t recall ever having trouble getting around NOR.
I began to walk around this “mall” and explored for awhile. Basically, I was walking around trying to figure out what the place really was and what all the local “shops” were for. I met lots of entities and my internal perception was seeing all different kinds of alien races much like a stereotypical Sci-Fi “universal mall” would appear on film with lots of colorful characters.
One particular entity was awesome to talk to. Surprisingly, he was in the role of a bartender and as I approached I said “Namaste.” to him and bowed slightly. This was also something I’ve never done in NPR, but for some reason I felt compelled to show him respect. He smiled at this and said something to the effect of “I see you are open.” and was excited to talk, like it doesn’t happen often that he gets to converse with people here. I found that odd, because despite being a bartender in a crowded room, he didn’t have any customers seated on the bar stools.
I introduced myself and that I was from Earth. He talked about the “mall” and how its visual appearance was the way I was able to perceive or process the larger reality right now at this moment. The “bartender” was full of wisdom and told me about the other inhabitants, kind of like a tour guide. Talking with him was the largest part of my experience and unfortunately, I don’t remember all that he said because of the length of the experience, but the psychic and empathic tones of his message are still bright in my mind today.
There were two particularly loathsome looking entities near an area where people were playing a game (some version of pool/billiards) that reminded me of a fat, bloated, blob-ish version of Gollum from “The Lord of The Rings”. The bartender told me about them and that they were repugnant. I went to watch the game being played, and as I was observing the game, the blob-ish creatures came near and were trying to draw energy from me. I wasn’t afraid, and didn’t even feel a basic pity for them. However, I was now aware of their repugnance first-hand and that it was their way of being – nothing more, nothing less. Like an animal eating another animal, that was their food, the energy of others. However, it felt that they weren’t technically supposed to be doing that here, hence the bartender’s aversion to them.
I held out my right hand as if to tell them to approach no further, when I noticed there was white light coming from my palm and shining on the creatures. I am, of course, aware of hand chakra energy, but this experience was unique because I had never perceived their energy in this manner before. I turned my hand over and saw an exquisite circular seal with designs and runes inscribed all around it in light, slowly rotating around my palm. Perhaps it was Hebrew or Sanskrit. Definitely something similar to it, though I don’t read those languages. Putting my palm back out to them, white hand chakra energy came from it and repelled them. It was at this moment that I was awakened to my inner energies and was able to remember how to will myself to fly and go places in the “mall” with the speed of my intention.
I began popping in and out of different places in the mall, enjoying the rediscovered inner power, but time was drawing to a close and I could feel it. Somehow, I just knew it was time for me to leave and as I began to, I approached an exit corridor. A “T” junction on its side, having 4 doors. One door that I just stepped through to get here, on my right was a double door exit, and ahead was another path and door. I left through the double doors but was immediately drawn to come back inside. I turned and frantically opened one of the double doors, afraid that I was missing something and at that very moment of opening the door, I was met by an old “usher”. She had a warm smile and short grey hair and welcomed me back, saying that someone was waiting for me. She pointed in the direction of the path and door in the “T” junction which I hadn’t gone through before I left.
When I looked in that direction, I saw another entity that I immediately knew somehow and was filled with a glorious, warm, all consuming light and love. I couldn’t make out her form, only this loving energy. This somehow familiar, but definitely female entity asked me if this was my true form. Filling myself with as much joy and energy as I could, I floated and glowed brightly saying “yes” and showing her my higher self. She showed me her form was a small white ape-like creature with blue eyes. I picked her up, began petting and hugging her tightly. There was so much joy and happiness!
Then it was time for me to leave and the experience ended, fading from that bright, glorious, loving presence.
