  • There are many states of mind that you can pass through when you meditate. Generally speaking, the temporary ones are just “side-effects”: They can be pretty cool, but they come and go. Just keep practicing, accept all new experiences and try to “relax into them and just observe them”.

    If you think you’ve really found something, do look for a teacher and ask face-to-face, because that’s the only way you’ll get a real answer. You can probably go to any meditation center and just ask, though I would suggest a traditional Buddhist one, and especially from the Theravada tradition – those guys are pretty advanced at “diagnosing” things.

    This might also help – it tells about some first-hand meditation experiences and explains them.

  • Congratulations, you’ve discovered out of body experiences / astral projection! Despite the crazy sensations it’s perfectly safe – I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of them over the years without any ill effects. Next time you try it, experiment with flying around a bit – you’ve stumbled across something BIG! Here’s some good information about it:

  • I recommend praying the rosary often. It is an excellent form of meditation, and the Virgin Mary can grant you advice regarding your experience. See the following promises.

    The rosary is explained here:
    http://www.ewtn.com/Devotionals/Prayers/rosary/how_to.htm

    The fifteen promises of Mary to Christians who recite the rosary:
    1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the Rosary shall receive signal graces.
    2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who shall recite the Rosary.
    3. The Rosary shall be a powerful armor against Hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.
    4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
    5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the Rosary, shall not perish.
    6. Whoever shall recite the Rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries, shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just, he shall remain in the grace of God and become worthy of eternal life.
    7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the Rosary shall not die without the Sacraments of the Church.
    8. Those who are faithful to recite the Rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death, they shall participate in the merits of the saints in Paradise.
    9. I shall deliver from Purgatory those who have been devoted to the Rosary.
    10. The faithful children of the Rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in Heaven.
    11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the Rosary.
    12. All those who propagate the Holy Rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.
    13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire Celestial Court during their life and at the hour of death.
    14. All who recite the Rosary are my sons, and brothers of my only Son, Jesus Christ.
    15. Devotion to my Rosary is a great sign of predestination.

    God bless!

  • I’m 17 and I mostly do reflection meditation. I light a candle and put it in front of me, sit down and stare into my mirror. Usually i get similar and different things that happen to me. It’s just your body going through a meditative state. It sounds like you were about to Astral Project. Nothing bad happened. You should be VERY excited. I have never gotten close to Astral Projection lol. Keep meditating. You can do amazing things when you’re at peace. Good luck!

  • “im not like some yoga person or w.e im 17”
    Like being a yogi or yogini is dependent on age or something. I’ve been practicing yoga since I was 16, and just so you know, meditation is actually a major part of yoga.
    Anyways, you may have been in a state of altered brain-wave activity.
