Mystical Experiencer: Female in late thirties
Current location: U.S.A
Age at time of experience: 34
I was at the end of a five mile run, when I looked up at the trees. The wind started to blow the leaves. I thought they were fascinating, the way they blew in unison. I started to feel myself move with the trees. It felt as though I was becoming the leaves. I then started to feel as though I was becoming a part of everything. This feeling was very overwhelming and I had to stop running.
I walked towards my driveway slowly in amazement. I felt as though I was as large as the Universe yet I could still feel myself contained in my body. I could feel myself as a molecule. As bizarre as it was it also was strangely normal. I wasn't frightened at all. I remember tears streaming down my face as I looked around me. The colors were more vivid. Everything seemed brighter.
This whole experience didn't last longer than a minute but it felt much longer. It stopped suddenly, and everything dimmed a little. The colors became much duller. I walked into my home and made dinner like nothing happened. I had no idea what had happened or that this was considered a mystical experience. I had no prior research on the subject and knew no-one that had experienced anything similar.
