Masters and Houston - The citadel
Type of Spiritual Experience
Symbolically speaking this vision ties in with the idea of the Christmas tree or the mayan pyramids. The Citadel is the Higher spirit and the hill equivalent to a cone or tree or pyramid symbolically. Thus this person is on the spiritual path.
Think of the citadel as a crown
A description of the experience
The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience – Dr Robert Masters and Dr Jean Houston
…......I began to come out of the mist and then I saw the Citadel, the impregnable place of real security, the home of Love and Purity and Awakening, high on a rocky peak, brilliant and glowing with jewel deep colours in the unbelievably brilliant clarity of the air. I moved towards it, up the steep hill, until my body was in the clarity from the knees up. I couldn't see me below the knees; I was still enveloped by the white enshrouding mist.
And that's as far as I got!
In my LSD sessions to date I have gone from being surrounded by a constricting black girdle to a grey barrel and now to a white fluid mist. Next time total clarity maybe?
