Everything came alive.

3 years, 7 months ago

Last night, I had an experience that I may have had before and I am curious if anyone else has felt the same thing.

____________________

Keep in mind that I was sober at the time. I think I was watching one of Mooji’s videos, because I enjoy watching them.

Anyways, I live alone, I don’t have a problem with it, but then suddenly I felt as though everything in my apartment were my friends. Everything came alive!

I wanted to give everything a big hug. Books, desks, doors, the carpet, chairs, ceiling fans, the whole everything around me.

I live alone (with out anyone else) but I am not lonely. I feel that it is impossible to be "alone" because I am constantly surrounded by and a part of everything.

What is more a part of me? My hand, which if cut off I can go on living, or everything else, the environment, without which I could not even exist?

Like I said, I think I have I felt this before: I was laying in bed one night, alone of course, I think I may have been feeling "lonely" and then suddenly I realized that I could never be alone and I felt an immense presence or absorption around me.

I’ve also felt this while on drugs. I was in my body but I was not my body and I was not my mind. I was pure consciousness and I felt as though I were among the stars, drifting endlessly.

However, the previous times I experienced it, it left me shortly thereafter.

But now, it seems as though it has stayed.

What say you, if anything? I am still very curious about this experience.

I have felt something like this out in nature but feeling it indoors takes it a step further. It is the same idea though, I think. Everything around you comes from the same stuff so maybe you were basking in that realization? I have definitely also felt the “pure consciousness” feeling (this past weekend and psychedelics were involved). I felt like I had literally infinite universes inside my head, but also uncontained. Really hard to explain but similar to what you just said.

Something clicked, some kind of realization that happened in your subconcious that changed your perception (or rather unblocked it.) I’ve had this happen too, I’m still living in that state of oneness.

It’s kind of like when you’re recovering from the flu. When your sinuses clear up, or when your ears open up again, that’s a similar thing as this awakening to oneness. Something clicked, the flow got unblocked and you changed. It’s an awakening, don’t let it go away.

I understand exactly what you are talking about. The first time I ever experienced that inter-connectedness was on mushrooms. I couldn’t describe what, but I knew I understood something.. something form of wisdom that brought euphoric feelings to my very core. Not synthetic mind you, but of the mind. Recently, I contemplated that understanding more and more and realized that it is the understanding of unity & connection. My friends and I always relate on how we can ‘feel’ other people’s ‘aura’s’, so to speak, on mushrooms. That is a reflection on the interconnectedness that we experience (100%, but not aware of it until our eyes are opened).

I had the same experience as you were it just suddenly creeped in one day when I was sober and you realize that everything is you & you are everything, all moving & brought into existence with 1 rythm.
Glad you’ve discovered this. It is a highly wise & euphoric sensation.
Kinda makes me wanna dance :)

I do this thing where I play with energy. It’s a bit weird but I draw energy out of myself then compress it back into myself. This form of meditation, is the best way to describe it, causes me to be able to sense everything. I can walk around in pitch dark without tripping on stuff others have left laying, even though I shouldn’t know it is there.
I can sense things like spiders and other bugs but especially moths. Has anyone felt the electric buzz of a moth? At times I even feel that this perception reaches far into the galaxy and beyond.

I have experienced this as well with people and inanimate objects. When I am consciously in that realm it can be difficult to differentiate where I end and the object or person my focus is upon ends – its as if my essence ebbs and flows into other people/things and they flow back into me. Its most noticeable or me when I am alone, but focusing on this feeling and keeping it in me allows me to pull from it throughout the day.

I am also an empath, sometimes other people feelings and/or emotions drain me because I feel their aura and presence so much. I easily pick up on emotions and it can become difficult for me some days to maintain an even keel when my spirit soaks up so much of everyone elses.

I dont think there is something that is more a part of you – than WE. We are all one and I think those of us who are in tune with that part of our own essences feel a very strong bond and responsibility for things and people around us.

Thanks for sharing your experience

Peace

Thanks for the interesting responses everyone!

@ellie, I think it is hard to explain because words cannot do it justice. The word ‘tree’ is not a tree. If you see what I say.

@manimal, I enjoyed that analogy very much.

@sin, it makes me want to dance as well, or maybe go up to people on the street and shake them into realizing (well maybe not that one…)

@ray, that is very intriguing what you say. Sometimes I feel almost (but not quite) overwhelmed by the vast amounts of experience-information that my mind and body attempt to take in. Has anyone else felt like this? Try to notice the infinite explosion of colors that enter your brain just from looking out a window and you may see what I mean.

@yvonne, did you know, atoms are nearly 90% empty space or something ridiculous like that. So if everything is mostly space, perhaps then it is the forces that exist between things, and not the things in themselves.

There’s this example of a ‘crazy’ guy that lives in a mental hospital in zurich, switzerland. Everyday he stands before the window from sunrise to sunset. When asked what he is doing he says he’s making the sun come up and down. Philosopher of mind Thomas Metzinger believes he truly experiences it like that and that his phenomenal-self-model is extended.

You also have the robot syndrome where people believe it’s not their body anymore, and the inverse, where people think they are doing everything and everything is their body. Also look up: Alien hand syndrome.

In a sense, if you stop clinging to your self model it can extent. Awesome stuff.
