Energy from meditation????
    #2637497 - 05/04/04 05:38 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

I have noticed during deep meditation, a feeling in the pit of my stomach that is hard to define. It kind of tingles/vibrates, and begins to spread all thru my body. This feeling becomes so intense that I have to come out of the meditation. Afterwards I feel like I have had a full nights sleep! Im wide awake and ready to start a new day.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Like Chickita said, it could be one of your chakras. If the feeling is around your belly button in the center of your stomach, that is the lower sexual chakra. You can also feel energy in that chakra when you are really turned on/horny. It's a tingling feeling as you described, slightly uncomfortable when more intense. I'm sure everyone's experienced this at least once while in some sexual situation outside meditation.

WOW!

You are talking about things that I havent heard before(Chakras and the Chakra system.

I started meditating about 4 years ago. I wanted to learn how to relax better after work. I would fill my bathtub half full with warm water, light some candles and turn on some soft instrumental music.

In would put in ear plugs and get in the tub and finish filling it up with HOT water. I start my breathing as the tub is filling. Once the tub is full enuf, I slowly start to lay down in the water, untill all that is out is my face(ears are underwater). By this time my upper torso is floating in the water with my legs propped on the tub. My breathing has usually began to run on "autopilot" I dont have to "think" about breathing, I just let my lungs do their thing.

During this phase of meditation is when the buzzing/tingling/vibration(its hard to describe) begins. It begins behind my navel and begins to slowly spread, filling my torso with each breath. As it begins to enter my arms and legs the feeling begins to get VERY intense, almost uncomfortable.

I have to begin to come out of the meditation. My arms and fingers will begin to buzz, I feel drained momentarily. Once Im all the way out of the meditation I feel energized. I have gone 48 hours W/O sleep by doing this. It wasnt my intention, I just never got tired.

I dont know how or why I learned how to do this.I have never read any books on how to meditate. I just followed my guts.

in the energy system i use most, we don't use "chakra" energy, we use energy that can best be explained as feeling like very strong electromagnetic fields (although its not electromagnetic). its very heavy, and has actualy reality warping properties.

just in case you're interested i thought i'd balance out the poeple telling you about energy being spiritual with this www.psipog.net link.

Thanks for the link :thumbup: It is under construction at the moment and I couldnt search it very well.

Do you or SpringChickita have any other links I could check out?

I have thought about building one many times.

I want one big enuf for my whole body, with speakers attatched to the sides and bottome of the tank.

flotation tanks are not neccassary. self trancing works just as well.

It is true that they arent neccassary, but have you ever tried it? It makes it much easier to get into deep meditation.

Ive experienced this quite a few times, normally when trying astral projection..(I havent succeeded yet but I live in hope!) I found out later on that this phenomenon occurs to many people. My current read, astral dynamics, explains it as the etheral body relaxing...I think we have many different metaphors to choose from that all seem to explain the same "energy system".

You need to have some sort of protection for the body when you attempt astral projection.

My father tried this many years ago and was sucessful. He left his body momentarily, and drifted around his room before going back into his body. He knew that he hadnt prepared for it to happen so he didnt go far. He said their was an audible "pop" when he left his body.

can this happen when your drunk and really relaxed laying down?

hard to describe so this is going to be heaps simple...

im drunk
sittin on the couch, close my eyes
listen to music thats playing
start feelin pressure in my chest. pressure leaves and turns into tingling sensation
sensation spreads through my body, all over.

starts to become extremely intense (as if im about to Implode)
open my eyes because i cant handle it any more
it all dissapears ?
i can do it again, if i close my eyes and let my self drift off. but its just way too intense because the feeling will keep getting stronger, it never stops growing.

I wish floatation tanks weren't so darn expensive. Anyways, I think I'm going to attempt to build my own in the near future.

That would be sweet to have a sensory deprivation tank with load music, jets, and lots of flashing lights.

So that's nice that you all have these feelings but what purpose do they serve? Where are you going with it? They are methods to what ends?
