PSYCHIC VISIONS – PROJECTED OR REAL?
During a Shambala Meditation Class in 2011, I had an interesting vision. I saw a red light, not a field of red light but something like a lit torch aimed at the viewer. Shortly, there was a similar blue light as well. And then I saw a group of ladies. All of these were in the same field of vision simultaneously.
Later I requested Guruji Krishnananda to help me understand the vision. He said that not just the lights but even the group of ladies was energies. It is strange how our mind sees certain energies to make them comprehensible. And at times, the energies take on form to help us see them!
While helping us understand the nature of our Mind / Mental Body or our Manomaya Kosha, Guruji had explained that the Mind can project visions, coloured lights and even messages from higher beings. The Mind does so because deep within, our Soul wants to have such experiences. The Mind is very powerful and can satisfy the Soul’s unstated wishes. Only a sharp Intuition can identify the difference between a genuine psychic/Astral experience from a projected one.
My personal experience has been that a state of surrender and desirelessness with “having experiences” makes a huge difference. An honest understanding that psychic or #Astral visions/messages do not indicate our “greatness” or Spiritual growth restrains our Mind from keeping us happy by giving us false visions.
Further, I usually talk to my Mental Body and request it to not project visions/messages. This has most certainly helped.
The unseen world has enormously much more than the visible, tangible one we are used to. Guruji Krishnananda once said that our Mind can even project 3D physical visions! Yes, he mentioned this when someone reported having seen some white Light orbs.
So there you have it. A developed intuition, surrender to the Divine in full faith, mature patience and #Vairagya (Sanskrit for non-attachment) can make sure that our Mind, a beautiful gift from God, does not project visions.
