Hello, I’m just starting my meditation practice. Doing only 8-10 minutes twice a day. The big thing I’m focusing on is a state of “no thinking” where if a conscious thought arises, I bring my attention back to my breath. The one thing I’ve noticed is that my “visual mind” or maybe my subconscious, will start flooding my mind with seemingly random images, sort of like stream of consciousness stuff.
I am able to detach my “thinking” from the images, and merely able to witness the images without judgement or conscious thought about them.
My question is, I can “will” the images away using my mind if I want to, and return to a blank visual screen, but I’m not sure what is considered to be a “better” practice.
Do you allow the random images to come, and would you recommend I allow them, or just will them away back to a dark, blank screen?
(hope that makes sense)
Thanks in advance!
