For many people, an intense session of meditation includes the feeling that they have expanded out of their normal head and left their normal thought patterns far behind. A couple of days ago, I had a reverse effect. I was sitting in a group of people after doing some channelling, and I found that my body was still occupied with a presence while my head returned to its normal capacity to think and talk. This is the first time I have been able to carry on a normal conversation (as me) while having my arms waving around deeply under the influence of something else. This is another breakthrough in my experiments of breaking down the barriers between my trance states and normal activities.
