The first time I had a vision or "hyper-cognition" was while petting a cat. I looked into its eyes and I saw the deserts of egypt, where sorcerers were fire dancing and singing. There display attracted these cat essences. They danced among the sorcerers and mixed their energy with them, forming relationships and teaching them. It was a beautiful vision and it happened within a few seconds of time, completely flooring me. Thinking back I think that the cat was a familiar of the family who's house i was in. I was a traveling at the time, and they professed to us to be "house hippies" so they must have been spiritual themselves. Which possibly encouraged the cats spirit sharing behavior. :D yay feline energy.
