There is a very interesting experience I had today and I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen? I evoked a spirit that had such powerful energy that it literally induced the rapture state in me. When I began the evocation I was in a light, bordering on medium, TGS trance. The emotions that were raised during the working were very strong anyway but as the spirit was nearing my working space I felt myself slipping into an even deeper trance with no physical or mental effort on my part.
At one point, I had to ask the spirit to enter my body temporarily which was part of the ritual itself, at which point I fell immediately into full blown rapture state. Everything in the room suddenly grew a blue and white swirled aura around it and I was part of my surroundings, no longer just “in” them. I had hyper senses, every power indicator light on my electronics doubled over and started swirling about and moving. I literally felt myself falling through the bed, dropping endlessly, even though I was still in the same place.
Then I slipped into soul travel and my tv turned into a golden floral mirror that I was sucked through, into another world where I met 5 demons who were friendly but not very talkative. When I said hello to them they just nodded their head in agreement. Then I approached a mausoleum (spell check?) a crypt that I entered and was getting ready to open a coffin that was inside but a dragon appeared and instructed me not to do that. He said I wouldn’t like what I find. I had a feeling that my own body was in there but not like a physical death, a spiritual death and rebirth kind of thing, finding a newer version of myself.
I felt as if opening the coffin would bring back a part of me that was now dead and buried, a part of me which I did not want to bring back and the dragon basically confirmed that. He said yes, if you open the coffin your current self will die and the old self will be reborn. At which point I saw a bunch of number 3’s all over the place which in numerology represents what comes after the new beginnings stage of the number 2, it represents moving forward with the new changes. So I immediately understood that opening that coffin would bring forth old parts of myself that I purposefully buried through previous magick ritual. So I turned around, thanked the dragon for his advice and made my way back home, then I snapped out of the trance.
Has anyone here ever encountered a spirit or a force of energy that was so strong it induced rapture or astral travel?
