My first altered state of concousness without drugs
    #963946 - 10/15/02 08:51 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I've been doing yoga and meditation almost every day for about a month now without any noticable results. Usually i do a bit of yoga and then about fifteen minutes of meditation with a guided tape created by my instructor.

Regularly I can only give about 5/8 minutes of concentrating on nothing and then my mind gives up and i have to open my eyes. However today was different. I followed the tape expecting to give up after about 5 minutes but i didn't. My body became more and more relaxed until finally i reached a state of conciousness which at first i thought was sleep but after, I came to the realisation that in fact it wasn't. It was a state that I remember that I didn't want to leave from. Unlike sleep I came out of it unbelievebly tranquil and peacefull.

Anyone have any similar expeirences?

Valium

EDIT: Sorry if I ruined your post...
There have been many times that I felt I have reached an altered states without the use of drugs...

The thing is, I don't even really try to reach an altered state (except for the time some people were doing the "pass out trick" on me) No, I reached altered states with (don't laugh) love... I swear to fuck, without it, food tastes not as good, and everything seems to lose it's color...
I don't think any drug could ever match the feelings I have had... we are each otheres perfect drug.

Love can definatly help you reach that altered conscience state... Its a wonderful feeling (if you are looking for it)

yeah i've had some experiences like you've described, learning to relax feels GOOD!!! all spiritual bullshit talk left aside, that's really the whole point as far as i'm concerned. don't be surprised or discouraged when you can't repeat the experience at will. there seem to be many different kinds of mental states that can sometimes come about through yoga and meditation, if you start trying to repeat one experience you actually interfere with the relaxation process, and can get frustrated because you don't seem to be getting anywhere. remember that results like this or any other are not the point of the practice, the daily practice is the whole point. different states of mind will come and go, enjoy them while they last but press on.

Your Wrong Wrong Wrong Wrong

During deep states of meditation you body will produce DMT (a natural body drug, and found in nature too), a natural drug it uses to open the 3rd eye! (thats what an altered state is the opening of the minds eye or 3rd eye)

So you didn't alter your consiceness without drugs, sorry dude, try agian.. oh wait you CAN'T WITHOUT DRUGS!

Have you taken DMT?
Have you meditated into an altered state of mind?

Do you know what you are talking about?

I've had 2 experiences while medatating in bed. Very strange, but interesting. It was like I was being bombarded with all these radio waves or something, I kept hearing people talking and stuff although I was completely contious at the time, just unable to move. I swear I was moving my arms, but at the same time I knew my body wasn't moving.

At first, while medatating, I had a sudden jolt of fear, but I decided to overcome it- then I heard a snap sound (?) and then it began.

When I was coming out of it, it felt like a million waves of soothing warm water rippling across my body. Very peaceful and wonderful.

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?
