The experience felt like being between different dimensions at the same time, I witnessed life and death in front of me together, it is paralyzing to the mind and you just don't know which of the two dimensions is home, you can’t know what is real and what is not for a moment, and then everything seems so new to you as if you see it for the first time ever.
You desperately start to look for a reference from your old life, something to bring solid ground beneath of you as you see new things in people, things you've never seen before! You see their age, you see their stories, and you see more than just their names.
A person really starts to see other people at a different level, and you slow down a little and start considering those new discoveries in your life.
Despite how frightening it is to suddenly wake up in a different place from where you slept, the experience reveals discoveries so valuable they change our perspective and bring a fine balance in a complex way to our lives as we start appreciating different areas in our lives in an appropriate and new way.
Transformation is very powerful we and I believe in it as a natural process too but we need to realize the necessity to consciously recognize the change process in ourselves and keep an eye on what we are transforming into. This is the function of the 30 minutes Magic pill I promised.
After going through the experience, I was truly scared of jugging forward through life without a clear vision and understanding of where I am and where I want to go and what I want to be. I needed a reality check to tell me the truth about everything and I couldn't take chances that I wake up one morning and not recognize myself in the mirror.
Months afterward, I noticed a change in my approach towards a particular type of emotions. The type of emotions that stayed active and persistent after a certain encounter. My new approach made me more receiving to those emotions with curiosity and openness to understand.
In simple words, if I felt an emotion of unease hanging within for a longer period than It supposed to then I realized it is a signal from my unconscious alerting me to information related to this emotion that I need to acknowledge, process and maybe take action.
Every human being has a set of values and beliefs within him and navigates in life according to those values. Therefore, for an emotion to prolong for more than its natural course then one or more of the values or beliefs within us has been either violated or met dramatically!
For example, if I am not settled on a conversation with a friend with a feeling of unease continue to swim in my space for a longer than it is usually then this is an emotion I need to attend to. Similarly, If a feeling of joy persisted for a couple of days after a dinner with someone then this is another emotion I have to attend to. So what is attending to an emotion mean?
Attending an emotion is a process through which I examine the emotion to identify its nature and then identify the root cause and identify why it needs my acknowledgment and what it has to say to me!
