Seeing Holograms

Category:  Ask Deepak

Question:

My question is when I go to sleep or when I meditate and close my eyes I see a lot holograms of people doing things and faces what does that mean... please explain?


Response:

If it is just a random display of unknown faces and actions, then it probably doesn’t mean anything of importance During sleep and meditation, you are allowing your mind and body to discharge accumulated tension and stress. And since you are likely a visually dominant person, you will be more aware of this release through the sense of sight.

Love,
Deepak

  • It can be a couple things. As Deepak said, it can be simply a dream that has no inherit meaning - just the ramblings of a tired mind and body. Or, it can be more. Some other possibilities are that entities(astral beings/angels/demons/gods/aliens/your Higher Self/bunch of other types of beings) can be trying to communicate with you. Entities can speak to you through language but a lot of the time they`ll communicate through symbols. What were the people in your dream saying? Doing? What was the surroundings like? How did the dream make you *feel*? What stood out to you? Of course there`s no one - me or Deepak or anyone else - can tell you what it meant; you`ll need to find that out for yourself. And how to do that? First, write dreams down as soon as you wake up with as much stand-out detail as possible. You think you can remember it well now but the memory fades quickly. Nothing in the dream may mean anything to you now but something might happen in your waking life soon that directly relates to the dream. And getting into the exercise of writing down and thinking about your dreams is also training you to have better control over your dreams - lucid dreaming like YourSoul said. And it`s also an important step if you want to start performing astral projection - where a part of you can travel out of your physical body and travel to the astral and other realms. But a big part of doing that is REMEMBERING your astral travels and writing them down is a big part of that. Outside of writing things down, you can start performing certain meditation/rituals that will help you open up to better communicate with any beings that are trying to communicate with you (and throw out any ideas you may have about scary things trying to get you like devils/demons - those are real but just a part of a grand spiritual landscape out there!) A lot of info; hopefully it helps. Jason jasonwhowe.com

  • I`m glad you posted this, since I`ve not met anyone who knows what I`m describing. During meditation, not sleep, I will often see faces and scenery that is as real as real life, as if a true face, form, or object has materialized beneath my eyelids. These pictures are not disturbing or negative, but usually beautiful. It`s startling, however, to suddenly see something as flesh and blood as a person standing there! Feedback welcome! Frances

  • Thank you all for the responses! I had forgotten I`d posed this question here! Getting older isn`t easy sometimes :-/ As to the images it`s difficult to explain to those who are not spiritually advanced. But those of us who are, understand perfectly. I learned to "pay attention" when I close my eyes..I open my minds eye pretty much and look at what is going on behind my closed eyelids. Deepaks response is interesting and thank you Jason as well. To me, it feels like I am looking at other peoples lives in bits, like mini movie clips. They last for just a few seconds and come at a rapid pace and are VERY clear. I have OBE`s quite often and can control (most of the time) where I go. Also at times when this is happening, I also hear what sounds exactly like morse code. Feel free to contact me @ joanz111@yahoo.com If you would like to discuss :-)

  • This has been happening to me for years. I have only recognized one entity, which was our pet dog shortly after she passed. Only once has the phenomenon been animated, like a movie. I saw a man walking his dog on a snow-covered lane lined with trees. Go figure.

  • You are so pretty.

    Dora Gauna // 2013-02-28 22:48:29 // //
  • But if a display stops to a certain sight and your mind wants you to remember it, there “is” a meaning behind, and of course, explanation for it.

  • Wow, I experience this often too. Sometimes it is significant, like your higher self showing one unfoldings. I often dream of things to come in my life during sleep. Then when these things do unfold, I realize it's deja vu, my soul has experienced it already before my body has.

  • When the third eye opens, one finds happiness is not dependent on anything. The thought of God is associated with human thought allows us to understand that behind every event, even if it hurts, there is greater reason .. . No random creation, everything that has the intention

    Omie Bergquist // 2013-02-24 04:28:57 // //
  • These are not random nor do they have no significance they would not show themselves if they had no purpose, ask for more information the universe what who and why they are and a story personal for you will unfold.

  • I do that too Tina Yuzilaitis in the state of just before sleep.... so much imagery and have trained myself to breathe only as often as needed and gently and be still and observe... sometimes its the repeat imagery that makes the impact and allows me a direction to pursue either for self or others <3

    Julie Engelberts // 2013-02-23 23:43:41 // //
  • I think it would be interesting and insightful to tune into the one who asked this question and receive more information to give a more specific answer instead of just this general one. Just my thought at least. Love you Mr Chopra.

  • In deep sleep or in meditation when one is in a timeless state, all these things won't appear. Yes in transient state they do ....and as Deepakji says it is a releasing process.

  • It happens frequently

    Sanjay Dubey // 2013-02-23 23:36:41 // //
  • sometimes as im falling asleep i will have flashes of vivid pictures and if i keep my mind still i can just view them going by or i will see vividly a trail or mountains and it feels like im traveling down the trail or traveling through the mountains (usually flying over) in either circumstance i am simply observing the imagery which seems very vivid and i can follow it along wherever it is taking me as long as i keep my mind still and just observe.
