If is from direct experience now that I gain understanding. Perhaps there is some faith initially if someone has no experience at all but the proof is in the results.
My Sifu has many times old me that I should document my experiences and training. This one I decided to post so that others may relate or simply enjoy the read.
I had been meditating all day, each of my levels and by evening I was buzzing with energy all over. This is normal and something I enjoy. I lay on my couch and started to watch documentations on YouTube and the buzzing got stronger and I began to hear sounds in my head. I can't describe the sound, something like whirring, This also is something I have experienced before and my reaction is to surrender and allow the energy to do what it does.
I decided to turn the TV off and I lay back in a more comfortable position and watched as images passed in my minds eye. After some time I felt like it was difficult to move. I reached for my phone and held it in front of me to look at the time and my arm appeared to be stretched and the phone so far away I could not see it properly. My depth perception had changed.
I did this a couple of times and then out the phone down and started to wonder what was happening. I was not alarmed as I have had experiences before so I lay still just listening to the sound and feeling the energy surging through me. I wondered if I was going to leave my body but I didn't.
My arms felt heavy so I lifted my right arm up in front of my face and could not believe that my arm was completely invisible. I knew I was holding my arm up but there was nothing there. I lowered and raised my arm a few times and I could feel myself moving but could see nothing but the room around me. I thought about my kids upstairs asleep and started to think about if this was going to be permanent. I reminded myself to relax and allow whatever is happening to happen.
I raised my arm again and there was nothing there so I touched my face. I could feel my hand but saw nothing but the room around me. I put my arm down and just lay there. After about another 5 or 10 minutes the buzzing abruptly stopped and I was back again. I could see myself once more and rather than relief I felt excitement.
For me these types of experiences seem to happen outside of meditation and unexpectedly. I myself am not sure what the meaning of it is but it serves as a motivation and confirmation that there is much I do not know and have to discover about my true self and the nature of reality. We can either choose to blindly believe what a religious person tells us to or experience for ourselves.
