Strange vision changes

2 posts in this topic

Hello, 

So… this is a real question…. 
Lately, I seemed to have this strange thing happening, I feel weird even bringing this up.   Like this can’t be a fucking real thing…  and maybe I just need to check myself into a mental hospital.  
 

So… at certain times, or I should say certain states of consciousness… I can change my visual field.  I can increase the intensity of light, change the color of things, etc…  my guess is that I’m the only one seeing this (which I know it’s all really just me anyway).  I’m to afraid to ask anyone else If they see it, assuming they would tell me if they are.  
 

I can look outside and increase the intensity, brightness, and even alter the color of everything in my visual field.  I cross a large bridge over the Ohio river every morning on my way to my office at exactly sunrise time.  This is when it’s the best, as I can increase the intensity of the color and light at will.  It’s truly breathtaking what I can see… like nothing I’ve ever seen before.  I don’t know, am I the only one seeing this?? 

I haven’t taken any psychedelics in a while, like 5-6 weeks, I’m intentionally trying to integrate a long period of lots of trips, and lots of micro-dosing. I’m doing this right now, in my office at work. I am changing the intensity of the light and colors just by doing it. The trees outside my office window are like nothing I could have imagined… like magic.  
 

  Is this possibly still a afterglow thing?  Or psychosis maybe?? 
 

Is this just me just fucking unraveling?  Or is this a cool little skill that can make my world more enjoyable and pleasurable, visually at least.  (The changes are always to the good (brightness, color  and intensity).  
 

Anyone have anything on this???

Consciousness work can certainly change vision as well as plenty of other things. I’ve not been able to do the things you describe at will like you, but I’ve certainly had some strange visual changes at times. 
 

Nothing about this sounds like psychosis. Explore it and see if you can improve the ability. In time, this ability will likely become less important to you even if it is fantastic now. You will get used to it. Unless it destabilizes your life in some way, there’s nothing to worry about. 


“Any kind of consciousness whatever, whether past, future, or present, internal or external, gross or subtle, inferior or superior, far or near — a disciple of mine sees all consciousness as it actually is with proper wisdom thus: ‘This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self.’” - the Tathāgata
