Fairy lights patterns and circles
Type of Spiritual Experience
CBT = Cognitive behavioral therapy = a psychotherapeutic approach
A description of the experience
I started to experience hypnopompic hallucinations at the time of my first pregnancy, seeing fairy lights, see-through hexagon patterns akin to honeycomb, brick patterns, circles etc, on waking. It was also at a time when my migraines turned to visual migraines.
There was hardly anything about it on the net at the time and a neurologist I saw in Spain had never heard of them. Sadly, I got somewhat phobic about it, thinking I must be going mad, and if I saw that repeat pattern later in the day it would really scare me.
But I have been told since that these hallucinations are not to do with mental instability, which has helped somewhat to diffuse the situation.
Interestingly, I get them more when I appear to be low on blood iron. I don't know if that is anyone else's experience. What I will say to anyone reading this is don't be scared, but if you are, do get help. I left it a bit too long and have found that CBT has been very beneficial
