Stepping forward, I feel the softness of the grass beneath my feet. The wetness trickles across my skin.
This ground has an aliveness that makes it seem like I’m swimming across it, and not just using it to support my footsteps.
In this case though, the grass literally IS alive, because I astral traveled to a higher dimension, and I found myself exploring yet another planet.
Even though I’m only sensing the environment with my light body, the information is instantly translated into something that my 3d mind can make sense of, so in this case it’s as if I’m watching a movie of myself (in my mind) where I’m actually experiencing what I’m seeing.
The thought gets translated into awareness so deeply, it’s as if I can physically feel what I’m “sensing”.
Following the lead of my Faerie guide, we make our way into the forest.
The trees are different here. At first it feels as though I’m not welcome, and there’s a pressure that seems to push me backward, away from where I’m going, but then I realize it’s just the heaviness of the trees presence. It’s a deep sense of groundedness that I’d never felt before. It feels like guidance, as if the trees are showing me where to go, but even when they push me, it isn’t done as an act of rejection.
It feels like they’re inviting me to come, by pushing me to go. They’re leading me “this way” by making me feel safe.
It’s a dance, and every step feels like a thousand years worth of conversation.
There is no need to speak. Every breath is understood more deeply than words can ever tell.
The silence and the softness are more beautiful than any sentence I can utter.
There is such mystery in the subtleties, being in a rush would cause me to miss its sacredness.
I usually find myself hurrying through each adventure, searching desperately for the next peace of information. Adding more upgrades to my spiritual journey.
Here though, I feel a sense to let go. Stop hurrying. Be here. Enjoy this place, and don’t take anything with you. Allow this experience itself to be the mystery you are searching for. Trying to bottle it up will do you no good, the magic is lost when you try to capture it. Just enjoy this moment. Be at rest in the sacred forest.
I watch the Faeries dance in a way that I cannot describe. It isn’t just a movement, but an entire way of living that flows like a symphony.
I feel it pulling on my mind. In a way, I begin to feel myself breathing from the center of my forehead.
All of a sudden there’s a really bright light, and directly in front of me is a portal and a staircase. It looks like the purest white light I’d ever seen.
Walking into it, I all of a sudden find myself swimming. I swam so effortlessly, it took no effort at all. It just happened automatically, like breathing or seeing. I had a sense that I couldn’t control it, but at the same time I was guiding myself on where to go.
The water flowed through me, all around and passing through my lungs.
There was a gathering of sorts, and I was swimming in the midst of them. The beings around me didn’t come fully into view, but I could feel a deep sense of intelligence, like transcendental wisdom that knows exactly what to do.
These beings seemed to be watching me, without looking directly at me. It was the weirdest sense ever because I knew they were “looking” precisely at me, but it was more so that their attention was on me, while externally they appeared to be focused on something completely different.
Their senses seemed more developed than mine, and I even felt like the way they perceive reality is seen as from a higher plane than the one I’m on.
Perhaps they’re seeing me from another dimension, while their bodies interact with me in this dimension.
I had a vague sense that cats do something similar to this, whenever they pretend to ignore you while at the same time scratching for attention. They seem to be “watching” you, even when they’re not.
I explored for a bit, but realized I was done when I saw how far I’d drifted.
Not only was I in another realm that I’m unfamiliar with, but I’d also gone through a portal into this realm, from a place that was already mysterious enough on its own.
It felt like drifting out to sea, so far that you start to lose sight of the boat you were just on.
Panic sets in! AHHH, what if I lose track of my physical body?!
I need to go back, NOW!
Even though I know I can never go “too far”, my rational mind has a hard time letting go, especially when it’s hard to “map” where I am.
I had a pretty good sense of my surroundings, but it’s the feeling of “drift” that makes me think I’m further than I want to be.
I decided it was time to go back, so I remembered my human self, and at the speed of thought, I was back in my physical body.
