I am starting with Vipassana meditation.
The basic technique is to put your attention to your nostrils and observe the breath going in and out.
What I have problems with, though, is that I can’t really let the breath “be by its own”. So every time I put attention to my nostrils I need to breathe consciously as compared to me breathing doing something else.
What can I do to let go of that conscious control?
Or do it simply need to practice putting yet more attention to my nostrils?
Is Vipassana possibly not suited for me? Should I instead rather try to focus on a different object like a candle?
