I had an experience today and was wanting to gather some of your thoughts regarding it. It feels strange to write this down but would be even stranger to say it out loud to a loved one. As a bit of background, I am beginning to awaken my spirituality again as I've been shut off for some years (not much background but a snippet).
Today I was in a large shopping centre and walking towards the food court I stated to feel uneasy. Getting into the food court I felt so unnerved and felt like something was going on, but not sure what. I kept walking to my destination, centred myself and looked at the seated areas, trying to see what I felt I was meant too. I looked at about 10 people at different tables all within about 20 metres distance from me as I walked along and every one of them looked up or away from where they were looking and made direct eye contact within a split second. The last person I glanced at was within a few metre, directly in front of me and when he made eye contact, it was creepy, so was his little bit of a smile. I felt completely rattled.
I went into the store I was heading too and tried to calm myself. In the store I just felt like I wanted to leave. My eyes were drawn to a guy in the store. I watched him for a moment, looking at his back, he whistled a little tune and walked down an aisle. I followed from the other end trying to see him again, and after passing 4 aisles I did see him but there was nothing to see. What was drawing me was gone.
Does that sounds crazy. It feels crazy to be asking. When I left the store later and was heading out of the centre, I passed one of the guys I made eye contact with and it was nothing like what I felt before.
So, what's your thoughts?
