My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
There is a type of meditation where you sit in a pitch black, dark room, and during the meditation, you suddenly see brightness, as if the whole room lights up.
This technique of being immersed in total darkness and then having the experience as if a light switch has been flipped was a method used in some ancient cultures for spiritual awareness and communication with those on the astral plane (or heavens). Cultures, such as the ancient Native Americans who would journey to Chaco Canyon for spiritual celebrations would engage in these types of spiritual meditations and activities. They would go into the pitch-black dark windowless chambers and in those rooms, would experience moments of radiant light filling their soul, and the room as they connected with the astral plane.
I expectantly experienced this when I was in a dark room with my eyes shut and thought I was just imagining this brightness in the room, so I opened my eyes and the white light and brightness was still there. It didn’t matter if my eyes were shut or open; i was seeing the same thing and the room was filled with light. I was aware I was not “seeing” with my eyes, but was experiencing light within my whole Being.
I had another similar experience when I was pulled in a meditation to meet Gaia. I was amazed of the brightness and the light in what should have darkness, and yet, there I was surrounded by bright light. The experience of being in extreme darkness and then suddenly being immersed in extreme white light can be a profound and memorable experience.
