meditation question
    #2472260 - 03/25/04 08:19 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

ok, so i fianally decided a while back that it was time for me to start meditating. i had some problems getting it down at first, but lately i think i benn getting the hang of it, and it is really helping me alot with my insomnia, anxiety, lack of energy, hell just about every part of my everyday life. but something weird happened to me just a little while ago that kinda freaked me out.


im sitting on the couch, doing my thing when i start to feel the normal falling/flying/expanding feeling i get once i quiet down my mind. i like this feeling, and sometimes during this i even get these little "zaps" starting at the bottom of my spine and moving all the way up (i get these alot while tripping as well) anyway, this started to happen, except they werent just little "zaps" this time....it felt like a continous stream of electricity shooting up and down my spine. this lasted for a few secconds, then my body went into one quick and violent jerk or spasm or what ever....it hit me so hard i fell off the couch to the floor. i really have no idea what this was, but it kinda reminded me of something that happens when i first start drifting off to sleep. ill be laying there, right at the point where im about to fall asleep, and my arm or leg or head will just all of a sudden fly up into the air like it had some unfinished business or something....anyway, just curious if theres a reason to this, or if i just got some crazy muscle reflexes going on or something.

I've had a simular thing happen before. I find it's almost like a very intense emotion where it's almost painful. Once that starts to happen, I focus my breath as if I'm yawning or taking a shit and it usually helps me "break through".

It is kundalini, third eye, or whatever else you want to define it as.

wow man thats awesome
kundalini is ... well its like your life energy i guess, i dont know if your familiar with chakras but they run up the spine and each represents a different level of conciousness from basic survival to acceptance of god... many meditations are focused on causing energy to rise up the spine thus activating the higher conciousness levels
sounds like you had a natural awakening or something but its probably a good thing
if your finding yourself feeling light headed or spacey (from rising to far from the 'real' concrete world) you should just sit and do a grounding exercise, attach to the earth style thing

have you done any previous energy work? if not then maybe you very quickly tuned into your ability to bring 'energy' into your body, and direct it at will. I find meditating on my chakras to increase the versatility of my thoughts and expand my mind greatly. Take pharmakos advice and practice grounding techniches when in deep meditation, or else your mind may be very subseptable to negative and or un conclusive thought.

it's chi flowing up your spine, try sending it to the palms of your hands and making a ball and placing the ball on your abdomen

Alright. There are loads of books on meditation out there, but are there any really good internet resources. So far I have succeeded to find only tons of biographical materials about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's harismatical person and texts like
Lower Blood Pressure
Improved Health
Reduced Anxiety
Reduced Medical Care
Decreased Stress
Reversal of Aging
Change in Breathing
Deep Rest    etc.    :yawn:
But I want to know how to do it! Not just bibliographies, references, buy-a-book(cd)s etc. Where do I start? There must be some good pages on this!

                                  thanks in advance,
                                                                    ivi    :crazy:

TM is a brand name meditation system marketed by maharishi mahesh yogi (i think he was a physics prof in india before developing TM)

and (as an outsider) i would have to label it as an offshoot of hinduism...

Don't think of about Kundalini while meditating... you shouldn't meditate (in my opinion) with the goal of passing through all of the Chakras... you should meditate only in the NOW with the goal of only understanding the point of the current moment. If you think of the Kundalini rising, if you think of this snake uncoiling itself in your back and rising up your spine, you will only think of the future, and of what that snake will do later on.... just meditate, forget all this "kundalini" and only then will the kundalini rise.

right on krishna meditation shouldn't be an excercise but apart of everyday living in every moment so you become apart of the NOW so don't just limit yourself to just an hour a day that you lay down or sit in meditation practice while you are walking or doing the simplists of chores

Too true, Krishna; same thing with all forms of meditation (in zen meditation do not think about satori, etc.).
