The significance of a blindfold

Hello all

Iím rather new to much of this, but I am trying intensely hard to have successful vision journeys... trances... whatever you personally wish to call them and am having some very intense visions.

But one question is on my mind, after much searching on the internet and reading through a large amount of literature, I often find the recommendations of using a blindfold instead of simply closing your eyes ?

Is there a reason for this ? I donít know why, but I feel oddly awkward sitting alone in a blindfold but would be very willing to use it if there was a reason or perhaps idea behind it ?

Iíd be very grateful if anyone had any insights

Thank you

Hi AaronOswaldEdwards,

“Blindfolds” use from a shamanic trance point of view – to give you an idea:

You might also find better, more in-depth info on the web if you search.

I am sure it is just because it is easier right? And it filters the light out which you wouldn't get just from closing your eyes. The sensory deprivation is more complete and facilitates better travel.

I roll up a thin bamboo throw blanket and lay that on my eyes - I don't tie it back. Makes it easier to focus on seeing without light coming in and therefore helps deepen your state and become more immersed in your journey.

Heal yourself and you heal the world
