Possible Trance?


The earliest experience that I can remember was when I was about 5/6 years old.

I had, as a child, an uncanny ability to look at an item or fixed point on the wall/floor and concentrate/focus, I even remember my vision getting darker and darker around the edges until it reached a small point probably like tunnel vision. I would do this completely voluntary and to the point where my mother would literally shake me to bring me round, I knew what she was doing but it felt like I was somewhere else. I suppose it was some sort of trance like state I was in. Now, I was completely aware of what was happening but while it was, the sounds around me would get faster and faster and faster until it was one continuous noise, all this probably only took a few minutes but felt a lot longer. It happened a few more times as I grew older but the last time I can remember I was about 10 or 11. As it started I realized what was happening and decided to let it continue but when the sound got to the point of almost one continuous noise I got scared and broke the concentration - It never happened again. I have since tried on numerous occasions but without great success, I can start out the same as before but seem to lose it after about a minute, maybe its blocked or my subconscious is blocking it.

Were these trances or was I projecting? I have often wondered what was actually going on. Has anybody else experienced this sort of thing?

Thank you ITB, I really struggle with meditation I just can't seem to 'let go' probably because of some fear that I have created in my imagination over the years but I'm getting better at it and I hope I can put it to good use - just don't know how yet! But I suppose it will become clear at some point in my life! ❤

Sounds like you were about to project but never quite broke the magnetic hold of your body. It's like you were half here half there. Hence the sounds.

To help you get back to being able to concentrate, try to relax or even meditate beforehand. I can relate to this. For years I've had sleep paralysis and have learned quite well how to snap out of it quickly, but knew nothing of it besides that.

When I learned that it's a good tool for achieving astral projection and tried to use it as such, my "reflex" of snapping out of it became a nuisance instead, getting in the way until I was able to consciously relax myself.

So good luck. You have a natural ability there and I hope you can put it to good use 😉
