Time did not freeze. You were just in a state of heightened perception. Had you remained in communion with your spirit for longer, you would have noticed objects moving, albeit very slowly.

Heightened perception[1], also known as a spirit trance[2], is an ability seemingly all spectrals have. The spectral's spirit pulls them into such a mental state where time seems to move at a slower rate, and the two are able to meet face-to-face. Despite this meeting being purely mental in nature, the spectral and spirit can still physically affect one another. If a spectral uses multiple tools at once or is a medium using a tool, the multiple spirits can similarly interact with each other[3].

During a spirit trance, the surrounding area will look somehow different as an effect of the spirit. The worlds experienced are not wholly unique; they more accurately imprint themselves on the surrounding environment, looking more like alternate versions of the area. Each experienced world is unique to each spirit, and is often tied to the spirit's ability or nature in some fashion.
