Anyone See Bright Flashes Of Light During Meditation / Kundalini Yoga?

I have been practicing Kundalini Yoga for awhile now, and I can get into a pretty deep altered state very easily. Recently, while meditating by candle light, and with my eyes open, I saw a bright flash of blue light, not directly in front of my gaze, but just to the side of me. I am not talking about a pin point flash like you sometimes get normally (which is related to neurons firing if I remember correctly) but this was about 2 feet in height and about 1 foot wide, and ovoid in shape.

Now, I am not the type to be frightened by supernatural / mystical experiences as I have had Out-Of-Body Experiences all my life (they happened on their own,…. for all you people against the Occult!) But I was not exactly expecting to physically see something like this during meditation, and was just wondering what it was or if anyone else experienced it before. It didn’t scare me, but it caught me off guard and I lost it right away as soon as I turned my head to bring it into direct line of sight.

I read that ether (etheric level which is a part of the physical… like an overlay, and science is even trying to prove it’s existence… so athiests, please don’t say it’s hogwash!) Anyway I read ether is seen as blue physically and some people see a blue mist (natural seers and people who meditate) but this was definitely not a vague mist… it was a definite ovoid shape of considerable size… and BRIGHT like an electrical flash!

I often see orbs floating around after meditation. I believe that when you are truly at ease some kind of veil is lifted and things that are probably always there float in because your seeing becomes multi dimensional. But once I did see the kind of flashes you are talking about and I believe it was some kind of angelic experience. I was sitting up in my bed in the dark. I had just turned the light off and I felt so calm I had no fear of the dark. I had been reading a lot about angels and I… Read more »

This is really something to discus about. It was just last night, I was sitting in seiza posture and was closing my eyes as like always for meditation. But all of a sudden when all my thoughts and emotions were disappearing, I saw this bright light, it did not scare me but it did take me off guard, that was the first time I had such an experience in all my life. I think it was some kind of Third eye stuff that the wise one use to speak about, but I was not sure, may be that was our… Read more »

It certainly seems that many of us have experienced bright lights, sometimes during meditation and sometimes not. For me the Bright Light has announced itself for about the past year and a half, almost every time I meditate and sometimes during my sleep. It began as the blue light so many people report here, and lately has been completely white. Initially I perceive the Bright Light as a pinpoint with radiant beams. Gradually it grows in intensity and size until it consumes my entire perception. Equanimity meditation has helped me to accept the experience so that it lasts more for… Read more »

I’ve seen light dancing on my bottom eye lids that looks as if lit energy is swirling through each eye quickly. I have see light in the darkness that appears like a orbish base with rays radiating down. The more I meditate and breathe, the brighter this light becomes. I have seen blue, red, and white light figures that appear to be either animal or human most of the time. It seems the more I learn about history, philosophy, all religious teachings, and listen to the world in almost a schitzophrenic way to hear, what I believe is, a secret… Read more »

I thought I was going crazy but at least now I know I’m not not the only one… I’ve never done any meditation, breathing, centering or any other that sort of stuff. However, a few months ago my friend told me about the 5 Tibetans and I though I might give it a try. I just increased to 9 repetitions 2 days ago and got a weird side-effect – blue light. After my excercise I go to my bed, shut the lights, close my eyes and continue deep breathing for a while and I usually don’t feel too special nor… Read more »

I had an experience years ago when out of the blue my head was filled with brilliant white light and in that same instant I felt as if i knew everything that was to be known and everything was as it should be.It only lasted an instant but the feeling of calm and peacefulness it engendered still laststo this day.A feeling that all will be well no matter what happens

I have this as well, during meditation or before going asleep, when closing my eyes, a bright white flash. It sometimes also happens further down in meditation, but differently.
I have read about this in esoteric/occult literature in different places, it is not uncommon.

Eg see:

My experience is somewhat different. I have been meditating for a couple of months and joined a spiritulist church. At the last meeting which was an ‘Open Circle’ I had a strange experience. After a poor start I saw the usual ‘blue circle’ bright and outlined in white, it normally expands then contracts but on this occasion it expanded fully and all I could see was blue. A metamorphic shape comprising of millions of purple and metallic dots swam around my vision appearing 3 times as a dolphin. At the end of the session I was very emotional and at… Read more »

The blue/white/indigo lights flashing either while eyes are closed are open is your Third Eye chakra opening. Nothing to get frightened over, be calm and know that it is just a sign that you’ve “awakened”. I’ve experienced this after a couple of times after intense spiritual workshops, usually where meditation has been practiced. Yesterday, while meditating to Tibetan crystal singing bowls and experienced everything going completely shining white under my eyelids and my body tingled all over. I consider this a GREAT thing! For more info on colors while meditating, research the Chakras.

I’ve seen the big blue flash, as well as green. They seem to be lightening shaped. I have also seen long, string like light, about eight inches long, floating near the celing, and te floor. They float slowly then fade away. Lately, and frequently, there is a flash so bright that everything disappears for a split second, and all I see is white. It happens when I close my eyes as well, but then the flashes tend to have a reddish hue. I also feel something that’s difficult to describe. It’s as if I feel some kind of earth quake,… Read more »

I have also seen these bright blue sparks of light, while using a frequency meditation cd for the first time! was a little freaked. The sparks all gathered together into one biggers, vibrating spot of deep bright blue with purple tint . And now randomly I’ll see a random spot of blue spark during my daily activities.

Ok I. Came to this site looking for an anwser about me seeing this BLUE FLASHES OF LIGHT and I’m leaving with more questions than I did before, because all of this people talk about is their expiriences but they don’t really have a definite anwser I mean not even the doctor that check my eyes and told me they were fine!
