We luuurve to have moments when the veils of perception drop, even for just a second and the bright light of who we are bursts through to knock our socks off. Wham!
Following on from last weeks blog on addictions, I must confess I was a 'spiritual experience addict' in the past.
I travelled all over the world, sat at the feet of many masters and meditated for days on end because I was addicted to altered states of consciousness and extra-ordinary experiences that defied logic.
I loved science, logic and reasoning at school and university, but I was drawn to explore the unseen and mysterious realms of spirituality. I learned to astral travel, I developed my psychic awareness, learned to read energy and to see past lives. Yep pretty woowoo!
I watched shamans turn into jaguars before my very eyes, I saw healers remove blobs of darkness from their patients bodies, I saw cancers dissolve in a day, I watched people throw away their glasses after a healer waved his hand over their eyes and I saw many souls (bright lights) leave their bodies when working with the dying. The more weird, crazy, 'out there' or supernatural... the more I wanted to explore it.
I have story after story of people and experiences that completely blew my mind away and both challenged and changed the way I perceive reality.
BUT there is one experience that blows all the others away.
There was one moment that completely dissolved my obsession with spiritual experiences and put an end to the obsessive search.
The experience is probably not what you expect!
