I've been an on-and-off meditator for a few years. I've had some profound experiences with meditation (some of it supernatural), but recently, I've decided to make meditation a habit (60 minutes a day); and not just any form of meditation, but specifically mantra and sutra meditation. I tend to make up my own mantras, and my sutras are actually affirmations that I draw from the Bible.

I found that simply repeating a word or phrase during meditation is a great way to dive into a trance, deep and fast. After repeating my mantra, I would notice that when my mind drifted into thought, it didn't just follow any typical thought trail, but it would go into a full-on waking-state dream. Then if I would stay with the mantra long enough, I would simply have total sensory blackout...no hearing, seeing, feeling, tasting, touching, or even recollection of the experience AT ALL. Whenever I would come back, I wouldn't know exactly how long I was under, but it felt like it may have been a few minutes at a time. I wouldn't feel any different than before going under, I simply was, then was not.

Now that I've had some practice with this, I've noticed that it doesn't take me nearly as much time to reach sensory black-out, but now whenever I reach blackout, it seems more like a flicker than a blackout; like someone just flashed the light off, and immediately back on again. I cant say for sure that the duration is any shorter, but it certainly feels shorter.


So my questions for the more experienced meditators here are:

1) What is this blackout state? Why cant I remember experiencing it? Is there a way to become aware while in blackout?

2) Why does it seem like my time in blackout is much shorter now (from a few minutes to a flicker)?


I want to make it clear, that I know for a fact that the blackout is not sleep. I don't get sleepy during meditation. In fact, I actually have to meditate at least 3-4 hours before bedtime because it tends to energize me so much that I cant sleep.

Thanks.

I kind of get what you are trying to imply, sounds more like you managed to get into the slower waves of the brain manually.

Maybe the reason it feeling like a flicker nkw is because somewhere in your sub or unconcious mind, it wandering or is fascinated about what your experiencing that it not letting you focus properly like you were earlier.

It happens, but eventually it will come around.

Hi Believer - I understand what you are saying, but emptying your mind is a dangerous practice as it allows the enemy to sneak in. We should always guard our mind by keeping it closed.

I am not trying to lecture, just wondering if you are aware of this.

The black out states worry me as it is not you that is aware. Kind of like going under anestesia and not knowing what happened during that time. And, it does sound completely different than sleep.

I'm a believer in Christ. I am aware of the dangers of emptying the mind, and I actually think such a deep level of meditation is dangerous for non-believers. I have a friend who lost his mind via meditation, but he was also playing with demons too.

I am using meditation to sharpen my awareness, for a deeper level of self-control. In the process of emptying my mind, I do hear the thoughts of enemies who are there, watching, regardless if I meditate or not, but now I can distinguish my thoughts from theirs.

Thank you for the warning. Most people would just shrug it off.

Although it is important to have a "psychic" defense of sorts, I would have to say the people constantly bombarded by visual or audio stimuli, manufactured to trigger specific firings and feelings within the brain, are more at risk than someone who is able to empty their mind.

Getting in touch with your own thoughts, watching them, and letting them pass grants you the ability to notice if and when a thought may not be your own, or may not be genuine.

When people do not take the time to learn how their own mind works, they are far more at risk with letting the "Enemy" sink in.

I'm aware through deep trance and altered states, you may be more in touch with things we don't fully understand, but then, again, it is important that you know what you're doing. Anyone who is interested in going deep into the mind, beyond casual meditation, should ensure they have the mental fortitude.

Sounds like you know what you're doing. Glad to hear that.

Wow. I guess the rest of ATS is too busy bitching about politics to chip in. Why do I even bother making threads anymore?

I know there were tons of other meditators on ATS. They must've all wised up and left for good.
