Merry meet my friends. I had an odd experience while meditating yesterday that I was hoping somebody had some insight on.
I had the urge to meditate with a bandana covering my eyes because I had a cup of coffee and didn't want to be distracted by my fluttering eyes.
Almost instantly I had an experience where I was out of my body and spinning in a counter clockwise direction, fast enough that my body felt like it was also curving. It wasn't uncomfortable or scary, so I rode it out for a while until I needed to stretch.
I thought to myself that it was odd, and then had a distinct childhood memory of being able to do that as well, except as a child I didn't spin in the same direction, i spinned like a compass that couldn't find north.
