Floating away

Discussion in 'Mental Health' started by verseau_miracle, Apr 24, 2007.

  1. Sometimes...about once every few months or so...ill drift away. I feel COMPLETELY different, my senses are different, the way the world looks and scents smell and allsorts of things. I cant partake in meaningful conversations. Sometimes i even forget my own name

    It feels like im above myself...well above everything really, just floating and living somewhere else for a while. It usually lasts a few days

    Does anyone know what this is? Does everyone get it?

    I dont do drugs of any kind, dont drink or smoke, i eat well

    I always "come back"...but its annoying at the time, disrupts my life like i cant even talk with people because im not fully on the Earth

    Hmm, odd

    420fuchs speaks the truth.

    Dissociative Identity Disorder possibly? See a therapist, it can't hurt!

    It sounds really poetic...
    Are you sure it's wrong?

    It doesn't sound like anything's wrong at all, just that you are "zoning out."

    Peace and love

    Sounds almost like depression.

    I think many if not all people have similar experiences now and again. I don't know why it happens, but it's kind of like when you are listening to the radio and you can't quite get it to come in, it's slightly out of tune and there really isn't anything you can do about it-the more you try to tune it in the worse it seems to get. It just needs to run it's course it seems.

    That's my take on it anyway.

    Something beyond our understanding perhaps?

    It sounds like this is a horomone issue. You said it happens for a few days every month, correct? You may want to explore how these "floating" experiences fit into your cycle.

    Good Luck!

    Nothing mysterious really, more than likely...you are just drifting into a theta brainwave state. You are fortunate, as many people only achieve such a state just before falling asleep or while doing drugs. It can seem quite mystical at times, like having an out-of-body experience. Nothing to concern yourself about...enjoy the ride while it lasts. ;)

    BTW, sniff some peppermint oil to get yourself out of this state, should you desire to do so. This will raise your brain frequencies to an alert beta state.
