We are not our bodies or even our minds. We are pure consciousness. When you talked about “going outside your ego” you described being able to finally see your life clearly.
As humans we see only visible light. This represents 0.0027% of the light spectrum. We are blind. We can only really “see” when we get out of the way.
Anita Moorjani had a near death experience. She stepped out of her ego and when she returned, like you, she was cured. In her case of terminal cancer.
Plant medicine, fevers, meditation, LSD, deep prayer, near death experiences and my favorite — hypnosis — all forms of spirituality — can bring us to the place where you found yourself by losing your mind.
Thank you for sharing.
