The next day (after smoking marijuana), I asked Sandra why she left so abruptly. She said she could feel the energy I was directing at her and it scared her. A few nights later I smoked the last of the three joints. For some reason I decided to move my chair into the middle of the living room, at the entrance to the hallway. The walls in our townhouse were white and I had installed a red light bulb in the hallway for effect. After smoking my joint I closed my eyes and started to meditate. The right side of my face was exposed to the light in the hallway. Seeing the red glow of the hallway light, I shut my eyelids even tighter. Surprised that I could still see the red glow of the hallway light with the same level of intensity, I tried to close my eyelids even more. Finally, I was forced to conclude that I was seeing the light through my skin!
Many years later, I read a magazine article about an elementary school teacher in South America who conducted experiments with his students. Blindfolded, they would run their hands over images of colorful ads in magazines selected by the teacher and then draw pictures of what they had seen with their hands. According to the article, test results were amazingly accurate. It was evident to the teacher that the students could see objects through the skin on their hands. A quick Google search turned up a website article entitled: Seeing Through the Skin, which describes a study of skin viewing being conducted by Prof. Leonid Yaroslavsky at Tel Aviv University, in Israel.

Disclaimer: Even though I’m sharing my drug-related experiences with you, I don’t advocate drug use. In many cases they’re considered illegal. Personally, I prefer a clear mind when I explore the nature of my own consciousness. I’m a better observer. In fact, my most profound experiences in altered states happened when my mind was at its clearest. Openness, fearlessness and curiosity also play vital roles in entering altered states of consciousness.
Many of us have been convinced that looking inward is dangerous. It’s not if we decide not to be frightened by it. However, like anything new, it’s best to start by taking baby steps. When we really want to know something it’s as if the entire universe conspires to make it happen. In other words, we get what we concentrate on whether it’s by design or default. There are no accidents so it’s up to us to be clear on what we want. Reading the Seth books served as a powerful trigger for me because he’s supposedly talking to us from the great beyond and much of what he describes is subjective, at the thought and feeling of actualization.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
“How you define yourself and the world around you, forms your intent, which, in turn, forms your reality.” – Seth
In other words, we create our reality from what we believe about ourselves, and the world around us.
If we do not consciously choose our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If our beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations create our reality, can we afford not to question them?
The more we love, understand and appreciate ourselves, the better we treat ourselves, and the world.
Blessings of love and understanding be to us all!
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of your experience. Look for them!
