At first it made me feel sleepy...but also a little dizzy. The best thing I can compare it to is that feeling you get right before you fall asleep, or when you first wake up. You are aware of what is going on but sleepy and relaxed. If I didn’t want to focus on anything I would close my eyes and it was almost like having a really light nap. You can hear people talking and can respond but can tune out as well.

And the feeling didn't scare you? Wow. That's pretty awesome.

Surprisingly it did not. It kind of startled me the first time but it relaxes you very quickly.
