With my twice daily motivation to practice getting into trance states and deep meditation, preparing for Soul Travel, I sort of stumbled upon a combo of two techniques which within a minute or two put me into a pretty strong open-eyed trance.
Last night I began my meditation sitting upright on a pillow and started scrying into a black leather rectangular board I had made that was situated directly across the room around 6 feet in front of me. After relaxing and letting my eyes rest on the board I began to experience back pain(which is common). I decided to not only stare through the board but divide my attention with the ‘bodily sensations’ meditation. As I put my awareness to where the pain was it lulled me into a deeper trance and my visual field began to fill with cloud-like impressions, my eyes at this point squinting with intense focus.
In a rapid manner, the crescendo was a total ‘non-thought/body numbing’ trance of power which came on very quickly, once I placed my attention to be on body sensations while simultaneously gazing into the board. At one point I remember with half-closed eyes seeing a kind of grid like or cube like interaction with the astral and physical aspects of the room. These are the only words I have that describe the visual. I was also very aware at the point of the non thought/eyes open/visual trance and was wondering if this may indicate a specific brainwave state, possibly the theta/gamma sync?
I don’t know if it was this brainwave state for sure but it was a new, strong experience for me with my meditation practice and I felt it was a success of some kind. Just thought I’d share this with the fine folks on this forum and welcome any comments or feedback.
P.S. As I placed my attention on my back pain origin( the pain being such that it was ultimately distracting me from scrying), my body took over and aligned itself into a correct posture as I drifted into alpha? and the pain dissipated leading very quickly to no pain and total numbing of my body and non-thought. This is pretty huge for me as the pain was very noticeable. I hope this describes the process better. Thanks for reading.
