    Thoughts?

    Post  stephanie79 on Mon Apr 15, 2013 3:19 pm

    Hello!
    I've literally just done a ten minute meditation with myself sitting cross legged with palms out open on my knees.
    Few things...

    - my hands are pretty cold and went a bit blue/orange afterwards. The lines on my right hand REALLY stand out now.
    - I kept closing my eyes tightly (I do this alot in general life as well when I am tired/feeling unconfident) and seeing a blue/purple kind of galaxy/starry site.
    - I saw yellow and green and bits of red when not closing my eyes tightly

    I asked to see my spirit animal and a shape like a butterfly, elephant and snake (could see scales) came up.
    I could also see a foetus - my mind said 'elephant foteus...

    Also a lot of light flows of flowers opening and closing, lotus shaped...

    I feel crazy lol!
    Is this normal?!?

    Yes,it is normal. I've tried that and seen the starry sky. Plus shapes moving in the sky.

    I usually get faces. Smiling faces.... :asmile:

    I agree with Joanie all normal, but i'd advise relaxing a little, eyes shut tightly can be uncomfortable, you should always be comfortable imo.

    yup normal.. agree with Violet, try to relax your eyes, and try to put your hands in a better position. there is no need really to put your palms out open, try find the most comfortable position for you.
    getting extra cold or extra warm is often happen while meditating.

    I have found that when you can sit or lie so that nothing is crossed that your vibrations are higher.

    isn't it allways the question what to do with the hands? :)
    just do with your hands something that makes you feel comfortable.
    there are many theories about meditation, some say that your posture is very important and others care less about your posture. just try,
    if you lie down, just place your hands near your body.
    some say that if you cross your organs it blocks the energy, others recommend you to cross your legs and your fingers, some say close your eyes others say you better keep your eyes open.

    my first rule: listen to yourself, to your body, what feels nice or not nice to you, for feels right or not for you. try.. try different styles and see what works best for you.


    hope this helps

    A lightweight fleece type blanket is good if you tend to feel cold when meditating too.
