If you fell down a flight of stairs and really got hurt, physically, something else (non-physical) might also happen. You might see a great White Light. You might hear what they call a “hypnagogic” sound. Imagine the rumbling of an earthquake.  Imagine the cacophony of a symphony tuning up. Imagine a million different voices speaking at once. Now combine those sounds. Okay, you’re close. Weave them all together by increasing the sound of your own internal frequency, your tinnitus, that high-pitched ringing that’s always there and you never noticed it before, but now the volume is really turned up. All together, now, that’s it.

Physically, you’d be different too, truth be told. You might even feel the kind of white hot pain that really cracks you open. You might find yourself feeling lighter but also extra sensitive to electricity, Wifi, even other people. Mentally, you might even dislodge from the body, disassociate from your “normal” state of mind. Something strange might happen to you, even if you’d never believed in this kind of stuff before, and suddenly you OPEN yourself to another aspect of consciousness. Yes, that might happen too.

You might find yourself waking the next morning (and the morning after that, and the morning after that…) with “downloads” of strange and fantastical information: concepts about different levels of consciousness, the meaning of existence, quantum physics and harmonics, geometric patterns, the natural world, the words of mystics you’d never read before, immaterial phenomena, death, and the cosmos. You might find yourself suddenly endlessly curious, if you weren’t already so. Here’s the weird part: people might start looking at you differently in the grocery store. Like they really need to tell you something about their mother, or something they’ve really got to get this off their chest.  They might feel better just by sitting near you. I know it sounds weird but believe me, it could happen...It could happen to you.

I know this, because it happened to me.
