New Meditation Experience
By:
Post # 1
Hi all, while I was meditating to clear my mind yesterday, I kept seeing this wall (looked like I was inside a bubble) and when I focused on the center everything in my peripheral vision became clear, at one point I began to pan away from the center to see places I'd never been, but when I tried to look around directly at the setting, I was pulled back to the center, inside the bubble, and I had to start over again, but every time it was a different place. I've had times when I caught fleeting glimpses of other places, or felt hot/cold, a breeze or smell, but never a full on view of another place. If you've any input or guidance I would be deeply appreciative.

What sort of meditation were you doing?

Were you pathwalking? Attempting astral projection? Simply meditating?

the type might not invalidate a visual experience like this, but at the same time, if you were doing mindfulness meditation, or any type not focusing on obtaining a vision, then it may very well have been your mind not liking the quiet and lack of stimuli.

I guess it was a cross between mindfulness meditation and pathwalking. My first priority was to quiet my mind, and the end goal was to envision myself walking along a dirt path in the forest, looking for my animal/spirit guide; I've been earnest to seek them out. I went back earlier this afternoon and at some point the path disappeared along with my surroundings and all I could see was the eye of a wolf. As for the mind not liking the quiet, I thrive on it. My day to day life is very lively thanks to a loving and boisterous family, so when I can get some quiet time when they're not at home I seize every opportunity.

Also, as a side note, a few minutes ago (quite literally) I was reading a book on Native American spirituality and wisdom, I felt like my mind was being flooded with black and white images of and then stopped on two men I had never seen before. I went and searched the names of two of the men I had just read, Charles Alexander Eastman (Ohiyesa) and Sitting Bull, and they were the men I’d seen images of in my mind not seconds ago.
