Braveheart - Eiderdown
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
I start from no particular place: I am cruising between two horizontal planes. These change from being clouds, seas, fields, star-firmaments, a metal grille, a huge flat ceiling and other images representing horizontal planes. I am annoyed that there is no steady representation of these planes. This creates bad vibes in me. The planes close in and it becomes darker. I want to go up or down to get out of this band. Looking around for a feature that may help me do this I see a large tree in a flat green landscape. I go down to this looking for a way out.
At the base of the tree is a large fabric quilt thick like an eiderdown or duvet. A woman stands on it legs apart. Some kind of being sits on each of her shoulders: fairly small beings quite different from each other. I move towards her. As I get near the woman leers rather than smiles and I see an accumulation of snake-like things on the ground between us. They are attached to nothing – just disembodied. The beings on her shoulders leer as well. I step back and the snake-images disappear. The leers cease. I step forward and the snake-images and leers appear again.
