Here’s an experience I had with a spontaneous visualization technique that had taken place shortly after I had started Belsebuub’s course on Astral Travel & Dreams.
A Revealing Visualization
It happened during a camping trip with friends to Lake Sonoma. We had to kayak to get to our camping spot, and it was on steep a hill with some flat areas where you could pitch a tent.
We had spent the morning swimming in the lake, and so that afternoon, feeling sleepy, I decided to rest and found a nice spot not far off from camp.
I lied down and closed my eyes. I knew the nature around me, having camped here quite often in the past. I could hear the wind in the trees, feel some of the sun rays on my face, and listened to the other sounds of camp.
Using what I learned about visualization, I started to imagine all this in my mind – visualizing what I looked like from above, incorporating the sounds of nature around me, then slowly I expanded my sight to imagining the sun’s light reflecting and glistening on the leaves of the tree, seeing the camp as if from above, the tents and my dog playing down in the water below with others.
As I did this, the scenes in my mind became more vivid, and the tree next to where I was resting, was becoming more beckoning. I focused my attention onto it – as I did that, it felt like I was now very close to the tree.
I could see the trunk, the branches and I kept going up to it – up to its last branch, when I was looking there, I thought to myself, I wonder what the tree can see from this height, and I naturally started to scan the sights around me. It all felt so real.
I was now able to look at all the forest right across from our camp, I could see the rolling hills, the lake continuing behind which I could not see beforehand, and I then turned my attention to the back of our camp site, it was just the continuation of a steep hill.
I looked further, and saw that there was a field, with a fence – that the forest was not continuing as far as I thought it would. I was surprised.
As I came to this observation, someone in the camp called out my name and the scenery stopped as I opened my eyes and I woke up.
It had been such an amazing and pleasant experience though – it also had been very quick – maybe only a few minutes at the most since I had closed my eyes, yet I had been able to see and feel so much. But was it real? Did I just imagined it all?
The next day, my partner decided to go for a long hike – he walked toward the back of the camp, but came back not so long thereafter. When I inquired about it, he mentioned that while it seems the hill went up a lot more, it did not, and that he had stumbled upon a fence, and there was a large open area like a field behind it. But he also had found that there were trails which seemed to lead to other areas.
I was quite stunned – his descriptions matched most of what I had seen in my short visualization, except for the trails. Had it been by chance? Had it been astral projection? I did not think so, I was pretty certain that I had not fallen asleep – I felt I was on the verge of sleep, I had been very relaxed and comfortable, and when I had heard my name being called, it felt a bit like a jarring sensation, almost like a jolt to the system, but not like as if I had been woken up. So was it remote viewing? That’s the best explanation I found for what I experienced that day.
