Been practice meditation since childhood have not had negative effect from it .. nor have I seen any buddhist monks have negative effect .. always puzzled me that see alot of westerners have negative effect from meditation ..
Good to see something thats useful for them to counter the negative effect they encounter ..

I always carry a crystal rock in my pocket. It was one of a set of four I found in the loam, buried there by someone years ago. There were many sets of these I found, either in threes or fours. Supposedly there were always four buried, and the alignment was to the NSEW directions, but I wasn't paying attention and one of them could have been bone and deteriorated in some cases. I like speaking to the Native Americans about what I find, they are helpful.

Well, I think that is where my problem came in.
My meditative practice had a goal of increasing abilities,
not inner peace.
The inner peace to me is a side effect.
and a good one!
But my meditation is goal orientated, I attempt to achieve an answer to a question.
