This isn't directly related to breatharianism, but a while back I posted about the dark room experience. I finally did it for a week, but I'm not sure it had an effect on my pineal gland or "heightened my consciousness." If it did have any effect, maybe it's not something so subtle, but maybe more intuitive.
I have been picking up on patterns lately, but I'm not sure if its so significant. For example, I thought of Edward Scissorhands, and then people at work start talking about it, or I think of the Matrix, and my boyfriend mentions it.
The one thing that never happened to me before was while in the darkroom, the first night I had a dream of my aunt. Each night after that, I told myself who I was going to dream about next and it happened. I had a dream of everyone in my immediate family. Also, the 3rd or 4th night, I had a dream of eating some strange shellfish (I'm vegan) and in my dream someone said it was escargot. I found out a week later, my younger sister was in Paris that night and had tried escargot for the first time.
Oh, and to make my dark room experience even more symbolic, the night before I came out of the darkness, I was talking to my boyfriend in the other room (he wasn't in the dark room with me) and he was trying to get rid of a bat that had flown in through the roof for about an hour. He had been making jokes about me being in my cave all week so it served him right. :P
Anyways, I just felt like sharing. If you have any thoughts on the pineal gland, I'd like to hear...
