Something strange happening
« on: September 12, 2016, 03:01:50 PM »
Hey guys!
I practice mindfulness for about 5 months now, to cope with my generalized anxiety disorder and my depression.
But something new happened.
I felt it, from a defined moment (and this sensation is here with me until now), that the reality sunddely changed.

Everything is more real than the reality I've experienced so far in my life.
Everything is 'brighter'/'sharper', the sensations changed, my vision of the world changed, I'm feeling a little bit anxious about that because this is too new for me! Its like I'm in a different reality.
+ I`m having LOTS of dejavu. What is this? Someone had an increase in this feeling too?

I know this sounds crazy, but im wondering what just happened to me.
This happened to someone else?

Any insights?

Edit 1: I'm experiencing an enormous energy, creativity and a will to produce something new in my life!

Hello Gabriel,

"More real than the reality i've experienced in my life, brighter, sharper..." is familiar to me. It is one of the effect i noticed from meditation.
The dejavu seems less familiar to me. It is probably more personal to you and i guess you can regard it as a mental impurity, not giving it much importance but noticing it when it happens.
Energy and creativity also seem familiar to me. Personaly, i regard it as a trap, but it is obviously pleasant!
But whatever you experience, it is impermanent and will change  ;)

I had this gabriel: it's not unusual so don't stress about it :) ... you are starting to wake up to the present moment. It will change, as Laurent says, .. everything changes in truth.

I can't really speak for the dejavu, but I've certainly felt the increased sharpness and brightness, and increased creativity. I'd like to think of it as a signpost towards awakening. With time this should develop deeper and deeper levels, but don't worry if the feeling is also absent for periods
