A Spiritual Experience on HBW
    #1552977 - 05/16/03 01:54 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I gaze into the bathroom mirror and immediately become enraptured at the sight of my eyes.  My pupils are huge, gaping holes of blackness with a reflection of  my own face in their centers.

I lean closer and closer towards the mirror, trying to see deeper into my pupils--trying to see through them.  My body, which I am barely aware of anymore, is stiff and rigid.  I am mesmerized.

Still completely focused on the image in the mirror, I make myself see double.  There are now four eyes staring back at me, two of which I converge in the center of my forehead, creating an almost 3D third eye that I stare into with all my concentration. 

All the while, I am leaning closer and closer towards the mirror, until, without even realizing it, my forehead is pressed firmly against its cool surface.  The image of my third eye becomes blurred, but still discernable.

I begin to see things within the black depths of its pupil.  A swirling vortex of colorful fractals.  A three-dimensional tunnel through which I move with startling speed.  The Universe!

My forehead--and nose, too--are now smashed against the surface of the mirror.  A small part of my consciousness worries that my nose might break, but most of me is not even aware of my nose, or the mirror, or anything for that matter.

I am flying. 

I no longer reside in my body.

I am no longer me.

I am flying through The Infinite Vastness of The Universe that lies within the pupil of my three-dimensional third eye.

I am aware from the Supreme Consciousness.

Suddenly, I realize that I have not taken a breath for a very long time.  I gasp for air and come back to me.  I step back from the mirror and gaze now at my whole body, as if seeing it for the first time.  My chest is heaving.  My eyes are wide.

Feeling an intense need to be naked at this moment, I take off my clothes.

Looking at my skin, it begins to change different shades of red and orange.  The colors ebb and flow like some strange, liquid energy.  It looks like my whole body is alive; like it has a life of its own.

I stare into the mirror, perplexed by what is going on. 

I stare, and stare, and stare. . .

Until somehow I become lost.  I am no longer there or aware of anything.  I have disappeared and am not even aware of the fact that this has happened.

Then suddenly I am falling to the floor in a haze of colors!

I catch myself just in time, and suddenly realize what just happened.  I have no clue how long I was gone, or what happened.  I just know that I was gone, and that somehow, I am back.

And for some reason, I feel like I know my Self better than I ever have before. 

I feel like crying.  I feel like passing out from exhaustion. 

I feel like doing something!

And so I stand up and leave the bathroom.  I leave the crazy Universe within the pupil of my three-dimensional third eye.  And I leave the mirror, not even daring to glance into its depths before my departure.

WHAT. . .

AN. . .

EXPERIENCE!

:ooo:

-RebelSteve

P.S.  I owe a profound THANK YOU to matts for making this profound experience possible.  He is one of the kindest people I've met here at the Shroomery, and he should keep an eye on his mailbox in the near future! :wink:

I did that on my very first shroom trip. I saw God in my eyes.

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

Way off topic but we really missed it.  I went out this week with a friend and picked 120 morels in 90 minutes, a morel every 45 seconds for an hour and a half!

The hills where you live would be filled with them.  :frown:  We need to foray sometime. :wink:

Nice write-up on the experience.  You should contribute that on Erowid.

Cheers,

Yeah, I saw that post in the Hunting forum!  You're one lucky son-of-a-gun! :smile:

I'm home from school now, so I'm able to foray whenever you have the time.  Send me a PM and let me know!

Thanks for the comment on my write-up... Perhaps I will submit it to erowid.

Peace,

RebelSteve

That is an excellent trip report. Reminds me of catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror when I was tripping my socks off. I got lost in my bathroom..wheres the door?

Do you ever get that demonic smile when tripping?

I always do.

I know what you're talking about... I bet your pupils get just as big as mine do under the influence of HBWR.  It's awesome to look at.  :smile:
