I had a “bad trip” a few years back in which i encountered an entity that roughed me up pretty good. I always assumed it was my Jungian “shadow self” but it seems now that that doesnt quite fit. The best way i can describe it was as though a figure of dark smoke was before me and from the smoke came flashes of tooth and claw and a lot of visuals of red and black slash marks as if my soul was being shredded. During this time i also fought for many hours against the urge to castrate myself and murder my whole family
Any thoughts on who this might be? Was wanting to get more information
Might have been a real spirit, not a creation of your own mind.
It could have been trying to influence you, to feed off the blood and your despair afterwards.
I see, is there a possibly that it could have been something disguised as malevolent to test my resolve? I feel like that experience was like something unlocked in my head and was the beginning of my spiritual/magical journey. In other words my ego, persona, sexuality, everything was torn away and from there ive been more receptive and perceptive. After that i achieved a kundalini state during that trip and have only since been able to achieve them after intense panic attacks that trigger a ringing and trancelike state
It may have been, hard to be certain.
