First Trance Experience
Tonight I had my first trance experience as I was initiated into a school of Taoist Wicha. Previously when I did my Thai Sakyants I did not experience such things, but just now I could really feel the energy of certain present deities coursing through my whole body. My mind was conscious and I did not try to control it; everything just happened by itself. It was a fierce trance of animal deities, not unlike those you see during those Wat Bang Phra "Wai Kru" ceremonies. The other initiates had more gentle trances. I also somehow drew Taoist talismans to be consumed by myself, although I had no idea what Yants I was drawing at all. Very strange yet quite amazing. The path of Wicha begins right here. May the Ariya Sangha and Great Lersis guide me, sadhu.
