Any tips? I usually let my mind wonder on topics while I med. Through this I have discovered I may have an overactive third eye. I once imagined a strange axe weapon, the blade of which was made of some purple crystal, and the handle of which was a green metal, while meditating even though I wasnt thinking of anything related to it. Is this normal at all? And also, can I listen to music while meditating, or is that bad? Finally, is it normal to be able to meditate with my eyes open, even while walking or running?
your mind is not disciplined yet that's why there are many thoughts that comes to your mind while meditating.. its normal for beginners in meditations.. in order for you to achieve single pointed focus you must do void meditation.. there are lots of techniques in doing void meditations.. also, ninjas before are doing this kind of meditation.. and also, you can listen to musics while meditating.. especially binaural and isochronic tones because these musics will help you achieve trance state in order for you to tap into your subconscious mind..
if you are an advanced meditator, yes you can do meditation while doing something (you can enter light trance state).. but again its for advanced meditators..
