I don’t normally post on this site for various reasons, however I would like to share some things personal to me and wondered if anyone here has
also experienced similar effects.
Firstly, just to let you know where I am coming from, I am a professional engineer and a sceptic, however, I do have an interest in human
spirituality of which I would like to enlighten my experiences with similar kinships here.
My main focus of the thread is that of meditation, some of you may be experienced on here others not, I have tried several techniques over time with
little effect until recently. The method I have been using (that seems to work) is that of the Chakras. I pretend to breathe in and out of each Chakra
point for 2-3 minutes on each point and have noticed that when I reach my throat Chakra, my body tends to feels very light. When I start to breath in
and out of my sixth and seventh (last) Chakras is when the fun starts. Depending on my previous mood, breathing etc, I can get some very bizarre
effects. I have seen ‘visions’ of various images enter my thoughts.
My last meditation was very powerful experience, I sat cross legged on the floor in the dark and burnt some Jasmine sticks nearby, I cleared my mind
(the most difficult part), and thought of nothing. After a while, I had a very strange feeling that I was teetering on the edge of an abyss of
nothingness, the moment I thought of peace and love and my children, a bizarre thing happened, in my minds eye I saw a light descend from above and a
vision of four people out of focus and the most intense feeling of comfort and being happy – difficult to explain. Did I connect with my soul?, I
don’t know I’m just an engineer with a curious mind!.
So I am sacrificing myself on the alter of dignity by revealing this, so please don’t take the rip, I am interested in what you have experienced,
what you have seen, how did you ‘feel’ during and after med. Does meditation make you a better person?.
