There has to be some symbolic message in that coin for you. Images on money represent a government or people. The coin was the base on which you were standing. Since you were floating a base was not necessary unless it had a meaning. Since these beings could communicate telepathically they could have just given u a message so the image of the coin must represent something of great meaning. Perhaps a talisman that connects you to these beings? They may be your people and the divine government from which you get your psysic ability. The coin may be your answer to where your abilities come from. Just a thought.
DOH! Lynne I wrote a three paragraph response but lost it when my login timed out. So I’ll share my sincere thanks for your inputs first. Then share that you’ve offered some insightful ideas and questions for me to ponder.

I love your idea of (essentially) “Why the need for a platform when you were capable of floating...”. That’s a great one. For 15 years I’ve interpreted the platform as a gathering place but don’t know really who, what, or why there is a place to gather! Maybe it’s my subconscious’ version of a Man Cave.

My favorite idea of yours is that the imagery on the platform/coin might help lead me to the source of my psi activities. For two years I interpreted the pentacle on the platform/coin as an indication that my psi comes from witchcraft but 18 witches told me differently. So you may have sparked a resurgence in the idea that the imagery of the coin might still lead me to the real and yet unrevealed source.

I’ll ponder your questions further. Thank you again for sharing with me Lynne.

Thank you for reading and commenting on my post Lynne. I appreciate your important reminder to look inside for insight and answers.

Certainly I was on a trip down a spiritual path as I attended the Wicca classes to learn more about ‘the craft.’ I’d been hopeful that Wiccan might teach me some control over my other psychic senses.

Considering the possibility this might have been only an internal experience, it most certainly could have been. This experience felt different from my typical dreams/sleep in three ways. First, when I sleep on my back, I always snore - my girlfriend and my massage therapist remind me of that all the time. When I came back to consciousness after this event, I did not have any telltale signs of snoring. Also all of my dreams - except lucid ones - that I can recall after waking all have one sensation in common - the only thing I ever feel during my dreams is a sensation of my body weighing me down. In this experience I was totally unencumbered. Lastly, even in my lucid dreams (I have these about twice a year), a substantial part of my dream is ‘dreamy’ or incomplete. Kinda of like looking through a pair of dirty glasses where the edges of my vision are smeared even though the focus of my attention is pretty clear. In this experience, every image and every surface was just so very sharp.

I was left believing that this was happening outside of myself. At the very minimum, this was a totally new and different experience. I don’t think I have experience anything like it in the past 15 years since. Of course, it’s true too that I’ve not been in a similar situation - an instructor-led meditation - since then either.

I don’t think Ive been able to subscribe any other meaning to the occurrence. I am reminded though to keep aware of even little details about altered states - without doing so I doubt I would have taken so much noticed of the design of the five franc coin I found just three months later.
What a great experience

sounds like astral travel to me!

Have you tried connecting/projecting to those energies since?

Jadamz, I’m not certain how to contact them.

That instance occurred during a classroom guided mediation during which I believe I “wondered away” from the teacher’s directions. I’d had two occurrences of changing focus during the meditations in the two prior class sessions but nothing like this. So I’m uncertain but suspect it might have been some key words in the teacher’s verbal guidance that actually allowed me to release my consciousness to astral projected.

The more difficult part is that I was reading the teacher’s mind accidentally in every class session. So it might not have even been something she said aloud but something she thought which triggered the projection. Or, it could have just been me. The number of variables has prohibited me from doing it again. And, that teacher refused to return my calls after class because she discovered I was reading her thoughts (unknowingly even to me) without her permission.

Lynne, it was six weeks of freakin’ freakiness. I’ll try to find the time to summarize the six classes’ key events in a new thread. But it was the third or four session where that whole astral projection to the platform in the dark with glowing nubby entities occurred. At that point, I was in fact only half way through the class!

It was nuts.

Yeh. Jadamz, the imagery on the platform exactly matched the Morrocan coin I wear. I don’t have a clue where that platform iconography came from since it was not until three months later I ran across the painted coin. I just think it represented some meeting place. But I don’t know why anyone would meet there nor who it was that was meeting there.

Thank you Lynne. I’ve been living with these specific occurrences inside of me for more than 13 years and have had only my girlfriend to talk with. I’m anxious to share them with a wider accepting crowd who might be able to support and challenge my beliefs about same.
