Glad you posted, I've definitely heard exactly the same thing: a loud popping noise whilst meditating, just one clear, precise, loud POP!
It's happened quite a few times over the years but not for every meditation session by any means.
I have no idea what it is or what it means.
For me when I meditate I do so in silence, so it really stands out as a noise.
The first few times the pop happened was a real shock & confusing & quite a jolt to the system, then after a few more times it becomes less of a
It's more than just a noise though, it's also a popping sensation & it's definitely nothing external, definitely internal from inside my head, base
of the skull.
There have been additional occasions when it's happened whilst I'm in bed asleep & it wakes me up, or also just in normal every day situations as
well - but mostly during meditation.
The main thing is; don't worry, get familiar with the experience of it, try not to let it disturb your mind in any way, absorb it into the
meditation, steady breathing & continue...
Anyway that's what I reckon but I'm no expert in anything.
