Have You Experienced This During An MRI?

Recently,  I went in for a repeat brain MRI from 2010 as a result of a previous brain bleed I’ve had.

I am a survivor of abuse with a history of PTSD and anxiety and of course they asked if I was claustrophobic and I said no.

Surprisingly, I was kind of surprised that as I entered into the MRI room I was experiencing anxiety. Once I laid down on the table and enter the machine, I began reciting the gokai, which are the 5 Japanese reiki principles to live by.

By the end of the third time reciting the gokai, my anxiety was completely calm. I was in a calm complete state a presence with a notable reduction in respiration.

In the beginning of the scans, I began to see flashes of a pinhole white light in my third eye which Drew my attention to actually pay attention to what I am witnessing. It was like a flash going off on a camera but in a pinhole size.

This followed with  a black spot  notable on the upper  right side  in my third I’d vision .

Following this I began seeing nebula type formations in waves. The colors were of a translucent mustard seed yellow and an oblong shape moving from my left to my upper right with purple formations in the middle.

Right after the text said to the next scan will take 5 minutes, the next set of visualizations I saw started more on the upper right side of flashes of an oblong shape that was of a darker yellow and color. This later began to continue to flash in the more it flashed the clear the images got of my entire brain

The next set of images she said was going to take 2 minutes. With that followed images showing various vascular sections in my brain and I even began feeling tingling in my right foot which dissipated right after this portion of the scan completed.

The final scan was very similar to the beginning with a general nebula of colors flashing in waves mostly in the yellows, Blues and purple hues.

I asked the tech if there were different images being done on my brain as I had visualizations while in the scanner. I think she was a little confused by my question because it’s not a typical question people would ask. So I went on to tell her that depending on which scan she did I saw images of my brain as well as images of the vascular portions of my brain. She did verify that there were vascular portions done on my brain.

Now whether or not this is a verifiable experience doesn’t matter. However, since I am a very deeply spiritual person and love it when science backs up a spiritual experience, I’m putting this out there because maybe some scientists would love to use this to create a study on the brains of those who are intuitive or empathic.

That would be quite interesting though wouldn’t it for the scientific community?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Please share in the comments.

With love and appreciation,

I had an MRI on my TMD joint recently and saw pulsing beams of light of all kinds of colours. A little like a laser light show but much more beautiful and with way more lights. I saw colours that I can’t explain and don’t think I’ve seen before. I don’t know how that would work. I too had an overwhelming sense of calm in the machine, so much so I fell asleep and the administrator had to wake me up! They kept telling me I was perfectly still but it felt like my brain was doing more moving than… Read more »

I just had a neck mri today and I saw Blue light that turned into a darker yellow and back and fourth. A flower like pattern in middle. I wonder if it’s because I was looking at the dark grey stripe inside of the mri machine or maybe the magnetic pulse? I’m a sensitive person with radio waves so maybe same thing? It was new as I’ve had a head mri within a month and this didnt happen.
What is your opinion as this was quite odd but no information online about this.

Yes! This just happened to me. It’s pretty much identical. Down to the patterns, positions, and color, even the ptsd and abuse. The only difference is that I saw a red pattern after the white spot and dark spot. It went from red, rotating. It looked almost like a spiderweb. Then it was yellow, starting orangish and fading to green. That one was almost like a barcode scanner. The MRI tech looked at me like I was insane. I have had many MRIs due to problems with my neck and spine. But today was the first this happened. I was… Read more »

I also experienced unusual swirling colors during MRI. The pattern changed when the machine changed. I could also tell which direction the machine was moving….i asked the tech afterwards, and she almost freaked out. Lol! But I have always “seen” things others don’t, and I am a deeply spiritual person also. Empathic abilities? Maybe…


Hello, I recently had an MRI. I am very claustrophobic. I panicked a bit when they told me they didn’t have order to sedate me from my doctor. I didn’t want to reschedule I just wanted to get it over with so I did it. I was given blindfold and ear plugs. I closed my eyes and started to mentally talk to myself painting a picture of my happiest place. Out by the water fishing and standing in the water with my deceased dad. I suddenly felt a warmth take over my entire body. I could feel the warmth of… Read more »


Hi Laura

Out of curiosity we’re on ever diagnosed with a cyst on your brain? I know you had a bleed but were there any mention of a cyst anywhere in your brain?
