I have been trying over the past few days to meditate.
The first few times didn’t make too much success and just now was my first result.
I lied down. closed my eyes like I always do. But this time i told myself that I couldn’t move a certain body part. I started with my toes and worked my way up. In about 15 minutes i couldn’t feel anything.
So there i was sitting there, couldn’t feel anything, just my mind. Then suddenly, i had this really weird feeling come over me, and i felt like i was floating.
I don’t think it was meditation cause i still had thoughts running through my mind. My friend said it was some form of sleep paralysis.
When i ended this session. I tried to get up. and i really couldn’t. I fell over a few times trying to get up.
What was this? was this “sleep paralysis” or was this some form of meditation? How do you meditate, and can someone direct me to help?
i didn’t see anything, just the inside of my eyes, and i just felt myself kind of floating.
