Mystical Experiencer: Male in early sixties
Current location: U.S.A.
Age at time of experience: 63
It was for me, mind-blowing as they say. My view of reality expanded to a whole new reality. I came to some conclusions that I could not argue with: 1: What I was experiencing could NOT have been just coming out of my own brain. It could NOT have *just* been neurons firing because of the plant medicine I consumed. 2: This alternate reality exists all the time everywhere. It's tuned out when I'm in a "normal" waking state. 3: There are non-physical beings in that space. 4: My own consciousness experiences "normal" reality through my senses and brain, but it doesn't exist there.
In another experience, at a different time, I felt, through my whole being, love and compassion from and within the people in the room. I also felt darkness, sorrow, pain from them at times. What was really significant was that my recollection of being in that space did not just fade away like a dream when the medicine softened. I came away with a clear, positive recollection of the experience. It has changed my view of just about everything. The day-to-day world is much the same, but my understanding of what it means, and what it’s about has changed. Now I have to integrate my awakening into my daily life.
