I’ve been playing with increasing my senses. I started with listening to music and hearing melodies in the song that I didn’t hear before. I worked with hearing for a couple of days. I was able to hear the church bells chiming the hour just before meditation Saturday night. The church is about a mile up the street and I have never heard the bells before while inside my house.
Today at work, I saw a tiny bug on my desk. It was probably a little bigger than then ball of a pen. So I let it climb on my finger and at first I couldn’t feel it moving around because it was so tiny. As I focused on the feeling of it walking on me, I started to feel the subtle movement of its legs and it just go stronger and stronger until it felt like it was 3-4 times the size it actually was. When I got a call, I moved it over from my right hand to my left and noticed that I could barely feel it again because my attention was on the call and not the bug. It was very odd to feel a tiny bug so strongly crawling across my hand.
Then, when I got home, I pointed at my cat and then motioned for him to go to the left. Of course he didn’t listen, but as I moved my hand to the left, I was able to see a time lapse of my hand movement where there was a trail of my hand where it was moving up to my finger. The point farthest away from my hand was very faint and it became more pronounced as it moved closer to my hand. I tried to find a picture and this is the closest I was able to come to. I wasn’t in a shifted state at the time, or at least I didn’t feel like I was in a shifted state. The effect could be due to eye drops I use to restrict my pupils so that I don’t see halos when driving at night, but I’ve been using them for a couple months now and have never seen this effect before.
