So I was in Joshua Tree CA for new years, sitting on boulders watching the sunset. I will try to explain best with words just what I saw and my interpretation:
a goat demigod figure, with an egyptian hieroglyphic cross (loops on the horizontal part of the cross) – reflecting in the sun flares (like a lens flare in photography). – no clue what it means although I looked up the cross symbol and it’s the symbol for “blessing or breath of life”
square patterns like those on mayan ruins – like an etch n’ sketch – no clue on meaning
archaic looking faces on stones/rocks (like easter island faces) – no clue on meaning
palms of my hands – life i’ve lived?
pyramids/mountain – thoughts about perspectives or maybe control?
a mushroom cloud – fuck, no clue
love to hear any similar visions or possible interpretations – thanks guys :)
You know the meanings. But stop thinking your way out of it.
Goat is the symbol for Aries – being ascribed to the sun I would say that was representing one aspect of the sun (or God) that is of great relevance to yourself – blood and expression. Create.
Square patterns not sure, when I’m tripping acid I project crazy ass geometrical patterns everywhere and they all collapse on me as if I were as a black hole – seems to me that I’m seeing the projected hologram of my pineal gland – the divinely geometrical cog of all cogs that makes perception possible.
The faces are just your creativity at work.
Palms of your hands – you’re spot on. The labor and the love.
The pyramids and mountains are reminding you of your masculinity. Control and perspective when married yield the will of God.
Get more control in your life.
Mushroom cloud. The head is the torus shape – harmony in its completion. Shape of the universe and shape of the energy coming from the core of your being
@bandito, There probably isn’t some hidden meaning, if it doesn’t come to you straight away. There probably isn’t much point in over analysing your trip. A lot of what visualises during your trip is just abstract madness from your subconscious. I assume the square patterns are kaleidoscope effect which is very common.
@danfontaine – thank you!! re the pyramids/control – my take away from the entire trip is this -i need to cut people out of my life, and focus on myself. i spend too much time/energy accommodating/helping others.
@chekovchameleon – i agree about not over analyzing, the square patterns look like this exactly (top row) http://www.destiner.com/images/am_architectural_elements_greek_mayan_patterns.gif
It all came from within. Only you can have proper insight. I don’t want to prejudice you. But It seems to me what you were experiencing was the concept of the cycles of life, and the future changing with every action. The mushroom cloud is inevitable doom, but the mushroom shape is knowledge. The geometry is the machine of creation, the pyramids are order. The palm could also be protection, the goat the way your mind rationalized a divine entity. These are all symbols you have absorbed. It’s only as real as you want it to be. Don’t get hung up on the specifics its the broader strokes that matter, the spiritual and emotional knowledge you took from the experience.
