The past couple of months I’ve been experiencing a somewhat disconcerting phenomenon. I have found myself slipping in and out of states of consciousness. Without trying to.
For example I’ll be wide awake in ordinary consciousness and suddenly I will start reliving a dream I’ve had. Not like remembering. Reliving. I will be in the dream. A part of me remains in ordinary consciousness when this occurs. But my primary focus will be on the dream. It happens at all times of the day so it’s not that I am tired and drifting. No I’ll be wide awake and just suddenly slip.
Or sometimes I’ll be doing something totally ordinary like the dishes and I will feel the slip and suddenly everything is runes. The water is laguz, the mugs are perthro, the light will be dagaz and so on.
These events last anywhere from just a second to several minutes. And I always feel energized after an experience. But I confess it’s a bit disorienting.
I admit it’s been easier to go into trance voluntarily. And my trance work has been deeper and lasts longer.
I asked my spiritual teacher about this. He said it’s nothing to be worried about. It proves my progress. So I guess something good is happening. But it still kinda freaks me out! I guess I’ll just have to get used to it. It’s part of the new norm in my progress as a vitki.
