A description of the experience

I came here to figure out why me and a friend had hallucinated the same thing at the same time once. We had a bout of taking too many benadryl to get high every now and then. We had a really awe-inspiring hallucination together. He had told me that when he did benadryl alone once he saw these worms crawling out of the ground. So this time it's both of us, and he says, “Hey look! There they are! and I look at the ground and I see all these little maggots crawling up like a waterspout out of his floor. He goes to point directly where I'm looking, then they sort of crawl away and dissipate, and he says, “Hey there they are again!” and I look in the next room and I see him pointing at another one of these spouts of worms. It's certain that we were seeing the same exact hallucination and I've always wondered about the magic of the brain on how this is happening. Is it just imagination or is something more going on?

I've always been the type of person who wants to believe something more is going on. But otherwise, I do have these hallucinations every now and then, I've only ever had the 'false awakening' thing a couple times, and I'm glad because its really frustrating experience. Once I had a 'monster chasing you' dream and I woke myself up, looked around the room, and then the monster sort of popped up in the corner of my vision asking me to come back to the dream so he could keep chasing me.

Lately I’ve had very strange dreams, I’ve been able to go back to a dream I had that same night to finish it. Or I’ve had a series of four or five dreams with the same continuing storyline. Even stranger is lately I'll go to sleep in my dreams, and wake up in reality! Its a very weird feeling, its like I lay down in the dream and I 'roll out' and find myself laying in the same position awake. Its very interesting, but unnerving at times, you have to be careful to not lose your sense of reality.

I think it a lot of it has to do with stress, things in your lives bothering you and trying to get you to solve them. But in many cases, there could also be something more going on. maybe your opening yourself up to dark things. The reassurance in this is that I've always believed that if you don’t want something to bother you, you must strongly tell it to leave, and its always worked for me in my own dreams.
