I don't actually practice the releasing kind of meditation, as you (QuietSoul) describe, I practice vipassana (insight) at the moment, but am
planning to of course open up to the horizon.
I can tell you one thing though, that QuietSoul hit the nail on the head with the "bad thing.. bad experience".
Last night, I had a large dinner, followed by a bowl of ice-cream. I was close to through it all up, but kept it down for the sake of it. Anyway, I
knew I shoulden't meditate on full stomach, but I thought "I'll give it a go...". Well not to my surprise, I coulden't concentrate, because my
belly was acheing. I ended up going to bed right after.
I had become a psychological wreck. I shifted between consciousness and unconsciousness. I had a hard time understanding reality and if I was having a
lucid dream. I knew in my very mind that it was all in my head, but something had totally possessed my mind. I remember I sat up one hour trying to
understand what the clock was.
I shifted between laugher to crying to rambling stuff about how I should recharge a battery with my hands.
Don't let this frighten you... But instead see it as knowledge information, and heed QuietSoul's words. For they are wise
