  • another man's junk is another man's treasure

Posted 02 April 2012 - 02:35 AM

I Had a go at meditating about 30 mins ago, I Felt like my eyes moved from where they are to my forehead which made me feel like I was really tall.
Its my Third time of trying to meditate. I felt really overwhelmed I ended up opening my eye's.

I hope I have more experiances like it, Because that was a really odd but great experiance.

Has anyone had this same experiance?

Nope, never felt that before. The only weird feeling I've had is me drifting off for who knows how long, then realizing it, like it felt I was waking up from a dream. When I become fully aware again, I feel a good feeling in my head. Can't explain it better than that. Happened like 3 times in an hour today.

I was thinking about asking something similar today.  Lately when i meditate though, Im getting a mild headache that same area. Maybe im trying too hard, im not sure but the pain is right in the middle of my forehead.  
Its pretty common for me to get headaches, but they are usually only at the back of my head.

Yeah, When I opened my eyes, I felt good I went to bed after it was a right peacefull sleep. I still feel good today.

Its cool to see everyone has a different experiance..  Its weird because I felt like my body wasent there no more just my eyes.. and they felt alot higher and heavyier then usall which caused me to think I was falling.

No, that is the first I have heard of that particular one.  I usually feel something spinning in front of my forehead, throat, heart, abdomen etc.  At my forehead it is sometimes so pronounced I find myself gently rocking to it.  I also sometimes feel like my eyes are open - as though I can see the room even though when I check they are definitely closed.  The act of checking also removes the experience.

Losing your sense of where you are in space is actually a positive sign - everyone experiences that a little differently.  It is about what you are observing within yourself in the meditative state.  The fact is meditation takes many years to master and although experience of "phenomena" make come relatively early alot of it is, in fact, a manifestation of the "Ego's" expectation of the meditative state ie: you may believe you have reached a state of serenity and silence but, ever so subtely your Ego is carrying on it's incessant chatter just under your conscious radar pretty much raving about "hey this feels really cool, if I breathe thru my left nostril only I wonder how that will make me feel" :w00t: .

I have been meditating for 9 years on and off.  I have to tell that the experiences that have given me anything I can look to as a true insight into what meditation can achieve, I could count on all my digits with a few left over for all that time.  The experiences that remind me what I am up against and at the same time still inform me that I AM MAKING PROGRESS are the more common.  It is not discouraging, in case you wonder, each event is unique and something is added to quality and something unnecessary is removed whereever I can fully comprehend it and work thru it.

Is it alright to listen to music? because my music I listen to plays a big part in my life i.e my motivation diciplin and confidence. Got kickboxing tonight so im gonna meditate after I knuckle down and see what happends. But its nice to be able to actully talk to people about it Thanks.

I listen to music before, and even sometimes during. If it works for you, it's good.

Do you continue to meditate or do you stop when you feel that?

It's mild, so I continue. I don't usually meditate for long periods though, maybe 5-7 minutes generally.

Yes, most people start with music and keep using it periodically.  It does need to be serene and on a low volume, you don't want the music to "transport you" to another mental paradigm where it is the main focus and cause.  When settling down it definitely helps as do breathing exercises, concentrating on the breath is key to the experience IMO.  As you progress you may want to look at some mantras.  It can feel odd verballising on your own but worth the effort, does wonders for focusing the mind, silencing the chatter and balancing the chakras :tu:.

Perhaps its not that you try too hard but that you are experiencing effects of meditation.
interesting you achieved it by meditating for short periods.
