Why do I feel like crying during deep meditation?

Whenever I have tried any form of deep meditation somewhere in between I feel this huge ball on my throat area and wish to cry. No psychological reason that I’m unhappy or anything during that time..its more physical..I do end up sobbing
People those who meditate..will you know why?


  1. In eastern medicine its believed that emotions can become trapped in different organs. If we don’t release them, over time it can develop into physical ailments. For example, think of the Type A personality who is always stressed and rushing around – who ends up with an ulcer.
    the need to cry when meditating is a sign that your body needs to release trapped emotions. This energy could be a result of something that happened that day, over your whole life or even from a past life.
    This is important for your own health to release it, so I recommend just going with it when you feel that way. Over time, as you get it out of your system, it will stop and you won’t any longer feel the need to cry during meditations.
    I hope that helps. 🙂

  2. Perhaps it is because you have no reason to be sad, and still a need to release these emotional energies. Because you have no reason to cry on a regular basis, you are getting these emotions out during meditation.
    I guess what I am saying is that the emotions are there, even if there is no reason for them. In an extreme case, you would have clinical depression. Although, I think any healthy person experiences emotional ups and downs, even if there is no external reason for them.
    I just want to say, that as a tai chi practitioner, I do understand what you are talking about. I don’t think its anything to be concerned about, like repressed memories or anything. My thought is, just let it happen.

  3. I agree with Rieki chic that it’s trapped emotions finding their release. That was what popped into my mind first. The feeling in your throat… that’s what it feels like when the throat chakra is activated. I’d fathom to guess the emotion you released had something to do with not telling how you felt, that you withheld saying something at some point, and the emotion got stuck there. and the only reason I know this is because I’m currently experiencing something similar.
    It could also be that you’ve connected to a guide or an angel. Because pressure in the throat area can also indicate a spirit is trying to communicate with you. And whenever my angels greet me, they send me love and the emotion is so pure, so unconditional, it overwhelms me and I cry. So, it could be a sign that you’re in the presence of a very benovolent spirit or even the presence of an angel.
