Los Angeles, March 8 (IANS) Actor Jim Carrey says he had an amazing spiritual experience when he went on mountain top with a tribe.

The 51-year-old had gone to a spa when he met someone from Native American Lakota tribe and decided to go on a spiritual journey with them.

"I didn't plan on it. I just went to a spa and I met a guy who was connected to the tribe...I fasted for four days, I spent time in a sweat lodge and then they came in the middle of the night with a pick-up truck and blindfolded me and drove me to the top of this sacred mountain where they'd had these vision quests for a thousand years," dailystar.co.uk quoted Carrey as saying.

"They left me in a little seven-foot circle with a blanket and only a tiny knife to fight off cougars, mountain lions, rattlesnakes, scorpions and whatever else was there. It was so hot, it felt like 150 degrees and I thought I was dying at one point," he added.

The actor says after feeling very terrified he was amazed to meet, who he calls as god.

"At that point the mountain range that was above me became the perfect shape of a man laying on his back beside me. All the fear left my body and I lay there thinking, 'This is really happening. I'm actually seeing god and I can't believe it. I'm so lucky.' And I wasn't scared any more and then later the moon came up and changed the shadows and the face turned and was smiling at me, and I was just in complete bliss. I was as light as a feather," he said.

"The next day when the chief (of the tribe)came I asked him if he had seen the man lying on his back and he said he had never seen it," he added.
