Strange Occurence Last Night [Nov. 4th, 2008|11:03 am]

Last night I went to sleep with my headphones in, and soon after I was asleep a short pig-headed being wearing a long white cloak-jacket decorated with rainbow design accents came strolling purposefully into the room towards me, never breaking stride as he jumped onto the foot of the bed and continued to where I lay in the middle. He was wearing headphones himself, and immediately grabbed my MP3 player, demanding that he “share” (take) some of my MP3s. “Free MP3s..I want to share what you have”.

As I started to struggle against his forcefulness, I began to awake. However as I started to come to I was acutely aware of a whirlpool sensation in the center of my body, as if a great rainbow-coloured energy was swirling very strongly from within my stomach, and I could also feel my axis of orientation changing, so that as it felt I had been lying at a 45 degree angle with my feet running through the bed, I now started to be pulled back to a horizontal position matching my body, and I sensed the pig being was caught up in the whirlpool, being sucked inside my center.

After taking a variety of vitamins and drinking plenty of water I’d gone to bed extra early, with a vaporizer running nearby, as I felt very weak and knew I needed more rest than usual. I haven’t been sick in at least six years, but after first waking up this morning feeling great, I now have a throbbing and stinging sensation in my left ear that lets me know I have an earache and need to go to the doctor within the hour. I don’t know if the sickness is related to this astral incident or not, but found the entire thing very mystifying. Has anyone else had a similar experience, or know what the meaning of any of this is? Thanks in advance!

That's weird that you've had a ringing in your ears after astral travel. It makes me question even more if this ear infection is related. Thanks for your input!

Not all "non-ordinary" beings have our best interest at heart. If he returns, tel him that you are not interested in sharing anything with him and that he is not allowed access to any of your chakras or energy field. It sounds like you had your solar plexus chakra disrupted a bit. You can "reset" the chakra pretty easily. With your right hand, do a spiraling motion over your solar plexus and as you do that move your and out further away from your chakra. See if that helps.

Wow! I feel as if everything you've said is completely accurate. I could recognize a few elements at play, but some things such as the energy whirlpool didn't connect with me; what you say about it being a chakra point seems dead on. Thank you for your insight and help!

Yeah, I was in a lot of pain just as I started writing that post, but within a few hours I'd seen a doctor and gotten medication and all was well again!

I've never paid much attention to chakras until now. I've certainly believed in them, but I suppose I felt like they were such a small part of the overall astral realm that it was better to focus on the big things only. That said I'll be checking out a book on them soon; can you recommend any?

Thanks!

pig headed creature

I know this dream may have already faded too much for my comment to matter. But i thought it was interesting to note a connection to your pig headed dream creature with an especially vivid dream i had years ago. In sum, I had dreamed of a nested structure in which my dreamscape existed in layers descended from a harmonious normal environment and interpersonal interaction to increasingly unpleasant and hellish variations of it. At the most hellish level a small little pig headed creature flew up in my face explaining he was my sleep demon. Making the dream overall a lot less frightening.

Re: pig headed creature

Wow, that's a pretty interesting dream!

I still remember mine vividly, and find the description of your "sleep demon" very intriguing. Given that I often feel something roughly his size on me at night, I wonder if that's him, and if everyone's "sleep demon" as your dream indicated is of the pig-headed variety! I agree it would make your dream a lot less frightening coming from something that looked a bit cartoonish.
