SO interesting. The first 5 days I felt 10 minutes was too short, I usually meditate for longer periods. But today... it felt like an hour . It might have to do that I have worked 14 hour/day for 2 days and with a lot of pressure. The system is definitely affected by it. So a reflection of time , and how long 10 minutes is, according to how my daily life looks like. I think.
Yes, very interesting. And insightful. 10 minutes is not always the same... not at all. Another reason our meditation practice is so helpful- it can reflect where we are- how fatigued, depleted, angry, sad, energized, happy, etc. I hope you were able to get some much needed rest!
Rosemary thank you so much for the series. I'm finding seated meditation challenging in comparison to how i meditate before i go to bed.
I get pretty intense 'third-eye' lights in my eyes when they are closed and i meditate (lying down) before bed, is this a good/bad thing + should i expect to this to happen eventually in seated meditation?
Secondly, what do you advise we do after this ten day series is done? Should we be looking for further guidance in our practice?
You are most welcome, Luis. Thank you for taking the journey.
Regarding the lights you see... I don't think it's either good or bad (as long as there is no pain associated with it). I would suggest "watching it" and exploring what arises, how you feel, etc. As to whether it will occur during meditation, I cannot say. Perhaps?! If so, it would be an ideal place to observe it- while staying connected to the breath.
When you are done with this practice, Yoga Anytime offers a series of other meditation practices (challenges and individual offerings). You could try them and/ or you could continue to sit on your own... weaving in the teachings from this experience. I'd say go with your instinct on what would serve you most!
