Need Some Assistance with Translating an Image's Message…

So, to begin, meditation is a regular habit for me. I usually browse the internet for accompanying music, as I have a difficult time meditating without the music. In a busy dorm, it helps shut everything out and really put me in the mood to concentrate on my breathing. Because I know someone will ask, yes, the lights were all off, I was alone without distraction, and my headphones alone blocked out any and all noise being made outside my room, pre-music. Today’s meditation was a shamanistic drumming beat (accompanied with a rattle) that is meant to help with the start of shamanistic journeying. I, per suggestion, was laying down on my bed, with a bandanna over my eyes.

Well, it’s not uncommon for me to experience some unusual occurances or images/visions during meditation, and tonight highlighted that. I found myself atop a crimson dragon in flight, walking down it’s back to an ancient, shoddy wooden door atop where the dragon’s neck met it’s back. That part made sense to me, as I attribute dragons with travel, flight and the unknown, and I was trying to journey into unknown territory. The door’s symbolism is obvious, that I’m leaving our “realm” to cross into another. What happened beyond this door, however, is what I need help with. It felt as if I was falling, lost in some sort of void, and gradually an incredibly vivid image of half a human skull appeared in front of me. The skull looked cartoon-y, like many stereotypical Dia de los Muerto’s skull, except without the decoration. Anyways, it was the left side of the skull (skull’s left side, so on my right), with a question mark starting at where the eyebrow would be, tracing around the eye socket, the curve stopping at the center of where the nose would have been, with the bottom of the question mark ending at the bottom of the lips, without the dot at the very bottom.

Well, my fellow HEthens, I have absolutely *no* idea what that’s supposed to mean. Is there anyone out there that has any clues? I understand interpretations are different for everyone, and mean different things depending on the person, I am just lost in even beginning making my own interpretation of what I just experienced.

@djmc1400, Well here goes nothing, it seems that the half human skull is speaking to an unknown origin perhaps or thoughts about who you really are? I’ve had similar experiences and i’ve usually taken it as my ancient ancestors. . . The left side of the brain, as i’m taking it at what it was getting at, controls things such as logical thinking and induce desires for math, science, reading etc. It seems to me there is a question to be answered, or an answer you possess yet don’t know the question yet, or some confusion you’re experiencing?

@djmc1400, Yeah I agree with @connerj93, Would you say you use one side of your brain a lot more? or maybe while you are questioning the logic of the experience with your right side and thats why you were falling? I have no idea..
