A month or so ago I was house-sitting for someone. I was feeling quite stressed one evening, so I put on a motivation CD (Deepak Chopra's "Seven Spiritual Laws") and lay down on the couch to listen to it. I lay there for a long time even after the CD had finished playing, just relaxing and unwinding. I then began to hear singing.
The singing was angelic and choir-like. It just seemed to creep up on me; I wasn't aware of when it began, nor when it ended. No one other than the dog was at home. I listened to the strange, heavenly singing for hours until I'd realized the singing had stopped.
This happened again last week: I was having difficulty with an assignment, so I put the computer away and tried calming my over-stimulated mind. While I meditated, I decided to get in contact with my Guides to ask them for help.*
For a long time while I was meditating, I heard static, and a ringing in my ears that sounded sometimes like a bell, and sometimes like that irritating noise you used to get at the very end of a video tape (you know, those things we all used to watch before we had DVDs?) when it showed you all those coloured bars and demanded to be rewound. But then, maybe an hour into the meditation, the ringing stopped and I began to hear singing.
I was shocked and my eyes flew open. The singing then quietened, but I forced myself to calm down and tried simply listening to it.
The singing was calm, peaceful, and melodious. Sometimes it sounded as though there could be words, though at other times, it was more like voices humming. I tried using my mind to speak to the voices. At times the volume or tempo of the singing seemed to increase or decrease--but I did not catch any of the words. It was very strange, because I could hear someone watching a talk show on TV in the lounge room, and then here I was, in my bedroom, listening to this beautiful, other-worldly singing.
When I was next aware of things around me, almost 2 hours had passed, and the singing had stopped. I hadn't slept, but I had not been aware of the passage of time, either. It was a calm, yet uplifting experience.
I would be interested to know if others have heard this sort of thing before. Anyone have any ideas on what it is I have experienced?
*A psychic advised me to do this, and I recommend it! I later wondered why I hadn't asked for help sooner, as not long after asking again the next morning, I somehow managed to write the essay in about three hours, which is extremely quick for me. I'd spent five days wondering how to start prior to then.
