A person by the name of Pellian made a startling disclosure on the above top secret website. Pellian claimed that after observing a technique for several days, his spiritual perception increased to the point of having visions and dreams. He was able to perceive different colors and shapes even after closing his eyes. His continued practice even gained him the ability to see woven patterns and attract astral forms and entities.
It shocked him to experience several unexplained sensations as well as perceive entities who tried to use his own heightened consciousness as a portal to the real world. Refusing to attribute such experiences to hallucinations as he definitely wasn’t on drugs, Pellian warns not to trifle with such practices and one should not even pay attention to such entities trying to materialize during the process. The meditation should only concentrate on one’s own consciousness and sense of being.
