Strong feeling while meditating - is this common?

6 posts in this topic

I've had experiences like this before, but weaker.

 

Yesterday, during my meditation, around minute 40 or something, out of nowhere, a crazy rush happens. It seems that my vision has widened, even though my eyes are closed. Goosebumps take over my body. It seems like "Shit got serious", but there isn't a specific trigger, imagery or thought that causes it. It just feels like I'm "going in for a ride". It seems like adrenaline is rushing through me. My mind usually stops, but soon a voice tries to say: "omg this is so cool, looks like an enlightenment experience" even though I know it is probably not, etc etc then ego takes over with a sense that "Im amazing for feeling this" and the experience dissolves after what feels like 2 mins.

 

Does this mean something? Is it a good or bad indicator about my practice? I've felt it like 3-4 times in 10 months and it surely is remarkable

Does the energy is located somewhere precisely, or is it everywhere ?


Spirituality is not the renunciation of life

It is the art of living fully

Lol I know exactly what you mean, the 'im going for a ride' is the best way to explain it.

I believe its a good indicator of progression. You will 'feel' it more often.

But I believe you should try to ignore it and carry on with your meditation technique. 
Whenever I entertained it I go off in a tangent. 
If I ignore it I go deeper and deeper within.

Do you get it through meditation? Like, focusing on your breath?

That's interesting, because the closest I have been to such a feeling was when I was doing self-inquiry and a significant realization suddenly came. 

I wonder if meditation could work for me; like, I can question things for a long time; but if I try to restrain my attention on a single thing, I get distracted after 5 min.
