    Eyes Open?

    Do any of you meditate with your eyes open?

    I have tried, but I always seem to find my eyes wandering around the room or not being able to clear my mind at all...it is hard for me with my eyes closed!!!

    Hello


    99.99999% of the TIME yes. Closing them only for short stints. At times creeps the one out doing a Guided Meditation til they understand me some.....

    No, if I'm consciously meditating, I prefer my eyes closed. The blinking keeps bringing me back

    I prefer to meditate with my eyes shut though I have opened my eyes during meditation and have still been able to see what I saw with them shut.

    This is an older thread, but perhaps not an important one, in the sens that what is written, could be important to anyone.
    Weather I used to or still close my eyes or not depends on what I am doing.
    Most of what I am doing these days is energy work, and for that I need my eyes open. If I connect to my higher self I need my eyes open.
    It is easier to focus inward with the eyes closed.
