One afternoon I laid down in meditation.
When I did, I went to a place that looked
just like the forest near where I live.
Only it was more beautiful, if such a thing could be imagined.
I knew I was not awake and figured it must be a dream or something.
It was sunny but it was becoming darker.
There were other people and they were humming this sound,
like they were vibrating the air around all of us.
I could feel it in the air and it gave me a shiver.
I felt like joining in on making this sound for some reason.
When I did, it felt so natural to make this sound, and then moments later,
without me even doing anything, I rose off my feet into the air.
I remember I crossed my legs to get my balance.
As I was sitting in the air I was sinking slowly, a little bit.
I felt to place my hands with the palms facing down and just imagine
that I was repelling myself away from the ground. This worked!
Next thing I know we are all floating and
getting higher and higher in the air.
Maybe ten of us.
Everybody starts flying off into the
mountain tops nearby, in the same direction,
way up into the sky, and it was like I just wanted to go with them.
It felt like we were going somewhere important.
I remember flying around the tops of mountains and
seeing the sun just as it was setting in the distance.
I was so happy at this point that I shouted out in joy and
I had the biggest smile. I was so happy that for these moments,
I had forgotten completely
about being alive or even having my waking body.
This body where I was flying, felt to be the real one when
all of a sudden it came back to me, that I do have a physical body. This woke me up, because
I was so surprised at the feeling that I am not the body.
I was determined to go back there. Somehow I managed to go back,
after quieting my mind again.
Only this time, I was in some sort of bunker and there was no ladder
to climb out, just a hole at the top maybe 20 feet above me.
It was sheer walls and I couldn’t climb.
I remembered How I was levitating before.
This time, I didn’t hum or anything because for some reason I had forgotten all about that.
Instead, I just imagined myself sitting on the air and that my hands
facing palm down could push me upward away from the ground.
This was difficult but I slowly, inch by inch rose out of the hole
and I saw the exact same forest I had seen before.
When I made it out of the hole,
the sun was almost completely set and it was getting dark.
I remember I had some trouble levitating,
it was like I was bouncing in the air cause
I was having trouble keeping myself afloat.
I noticed it was a matter of concentration.
The more I payed attention to levitation,
the better I could stay in the air.
The whole time I was levitating, I had my feet
together and I was in a sitting position.
The soles of my feet were
touching like in a butterfly position.
It just felt natural to do it this way.
I managed to get up into the air
and fly like this by leaning in a direction.
I was going through the forest, but this time instead of ascending
to the lofty heights and mountaintops as I did before,
I was descending and I couldn’t do anything about it.
I saw wrecked ships that looked really old.
They were all worn, faded, and
overgrown with plants.
Then as I got lower,
there was a sign that I couldn’t read out in some water.
I went down to the water, still levitating.
As I approached it, I saw dolphins in the water!
They were amazing and they were swimming up to me,
as if to check me out. They were swimming fast and I realized
I was moving quite quickly too at this point.
I couldn’t stop from descending either.
Just about an inch above the water I reached in to it and touched a dolphin.
I felt the smoothness of its skin, the water pulling against my hand
as I broke the surface, and I saw the dolphin up close as it swam past me in the opposite direction I was flying.
It was all so breathtaking, that I forgot I was still descending.
I crashed into the water, moving at a high speed.
When I was in the water,
I noticed that it had a very strong current to it.
I could not fight it or even swim.
It was moving opposite of the direction I had been flying.
I was moving in the same direction that the dolphins were swimming.
The thought occurred to me to try and levitate out,
but I felt like I could not do this when I tried.
It took all my strength to stay above the surface.
I was being pulled into a narrow water way that looked very much like a
river or something. I managed to stick my leg out
and grab a hold of the ground on one side just before it narrowed.
I saw white coral and plants growing at the bank,
in the water, and up to the bank.
As I climbed onto the ground,
I was thinking about everything that was happening,
and how this was so real.
I forgot completely again, how I was not awake for a moment.
I thought that I should get my camera and record some things.
Next thing I know, I am in my room and I get my camera,
having forgot that I was not awake. My dog has a pillow
that he sleeps on, right next to my bed.
When I got my camera from my room,
I saw my dog running around and he was sort of getting in the way.
He was making it hard for me to walk around. He was super excited.
Then, I saw another of him that looked perfectly identical,
but laying on his pillow and fast asleep.
I looked at both of them a few times to be sure
there were two. I saw an exact copy of my dog. One sleeping on his pillow, and one running around trying to get my attention and excited.
I looked over to my left as if in an impulse and I saw myself laying
in meditation on my bed. I somehow put it together before I even consciously thought it through.
I looked close and I saw my self breathing.
I saw my body rise up and down as I breathed, lying on the bed.
I leaned in close and could hear myself breathing even.
I Knew right then, that it would be no use trying to record anything
with the camera.
The sight of my self, shocked me so much that I woke up right then.
When I woke up this time, a second later I heard my dog wake up next to me, and sneeze.
I was undecided on whether or not to try and go back again.
I decided to try one more time.
I made it back after some time,
to the same forest.
But this time, I was outside again like the fist time,
and not in that bunker.
I managed to get up in the air once again, in the same sitting position.
This time however, after I made it a certain distance
into the forest, it was like I was not able to focus my eyes anymore.
I woke up right when I lost the ability to focus and everything became blurry.
I woke up against my own will and I knew I had to write this down.
