There are many effects that are likely to be very subtle and beyond conscious awareness. Keep going, and take time also to observe your inner experience, including through your imagination or what might at first appear as imaginary. Use all of your inner senses to observe.
You can keep a special journal to record and compile your experiences.
Be patient. While the journey may seem long it is still active and dynamically bringing forward what you are prepared to experience.
You can also benefit by considering your intentions for what you would like to experience while remaining open to whatever experience comes forward from the Mystical Traveler to you. While in prayer, consider you are in communion with God in a very personal way. Listen. Give your attention to whatever is being revealed from within as a divine experience. Tell your story to God in complete trust that you are heard and understood and whatever help would serve any needs is on the way if not already done.
