Meditation Experience

2 years, 11 months ago

First off I have to say I am so happy I finally came to find this site! This site has everything I like to think about and discuss, but don’t really have anyone to chat with about it anymore.

But here goes:
I used to meditate a lot when I was younger however when I was about 17 I went out to meditate by the river I lived beside. The river had a really big hill that I liked to sit on next to it. So late one night after work I decided to take a seat and collect myself. Then being the out of the box thinker that I am I started wondering about alternate dimensions and whether they truly exist. My train of thought was that since everything has electrons that would be the link to getting to an alternate dimension, and if everything has them why can’t you just use your own brain power to focus them to just “evaporate” into the other dimension. I also thought it would be easier to move to a “lower” dimension (since theories say that they are on levels and it’s easier to fall than to fly/float). So I started meditating and concentrating on these thoughts really hard. Then I all of a sudden just felt very strange like my stomach was falling out of my behind and my heart was going to fly out of my mouth, I can’t think of any other way to describe it. So out of fear I immediately broke concentration and stopped meditating. Then when I got up there was a dent in the ground where I had been sitting. I haven’t ever been able to discuss this event with anyone before, I just found it very strange; and I haven’t meditated since then, Also for further clarification the ground wasn’t wet, it was summer and had been dry for some time.

Thoughts? Similar experiences with meditation?

That sounds awesome, out of curiosity how big was this dent?

It was kind of circular with a bit of a curve in the middle I would say about three inches or a little more.

It was pretty cool, but scary at the same time. Like I said, I haven’t meditated since then.

This sounds legit. I mean, obviously I wasn’t there and events such as these always carry a skepticism to the observer who is not familiar with them. Having something so profound occur would no doubt have my mind racing, and so I am also glad that you found your way here. I, myself, just got started up yesterday and the insight I have found here has been phenomenal.

Are you thinking about returning to the place where you felt this way? I think I would love to keep in touch and hear more about this. My most profound explorations have come from other sources.

@jpete011, Hahaha, I wish- jks

@lytning91, I am actually going back to my hometown this weekend so I think I just might. Might even be able to sit in the exact spot if I can find the dent still.

@aliwine, that seems like it might help you return to the state of mind you found when everything seemed to change. No matter what happens, go in with an open mind. Don’t feel disheartened if you don’t sink 3” into the ground again. Go in willing to reach that place you once found, no matter whether there is proof to be had. I will be eager to hear your journey.

That’s awesome :D I have had some weird experiences too when meditating. I’ve had several astral projections which have led me to question the crap out of my everyday experiences. Lol.

Also, I’m glad you found this website. We’re all into this stuff :)

@adamsmith, Your dog is awesome and so is astral projection. I would love to experience such things but I have never tried to channel such an occurrence

@lytning91, it takes time. I used to be really good at it when I was 15-16, but then it got scary so I stopped doing it for a while. Now I’m getting back into it.

Oh, and that isn’t my dog. I have a chihuahua, but not that one. I found it online and fell in love with it. Hahah.

@adamsmith, I also have chihuahuas that I love very much (they are teacups and finicky as can be, but SO adorable). I have never learned of ways to get closer to a meditative self before, so I honestly have no idea where I would begin. I have dabbled in some things that take me to a place I would consider (at least, loosely) meditative, but never self-taught.

@aliwine, well if you DO go DOWN, get some before/after pictures ;)

@aliwine, I’d like to hear more about this as well. I’ve never been able to go that deep when meditating, then again I don’t practice it as much as I want to.

Not sure about the dent being because of you thinking about other dimensions, but traveling via consciousness to other dimensions makes sense because everything is made out of quantum particles and so are you. If this were to happen though, you would not effect the third dimensional realm, thus, the dent had nothing to do with that.

I mostly think it could have been a controlled out of body experience, but fear of the unknown and how to get back made me hold back.

@tigerturban, I will give it a shot! I like to be outside when I meditate. And it’s currently raining a whole lot where I live. But once my busy life holds out a little bit I will try to find that me time to calm my mind and soul.

@aliwine, Having a separate room used exclusively for meditation can be very helpful. It is possible to build up a vibration in a room so that the moment you enter it your mind becomes silent and ready for deep meditation.

Jiddu Krishnamurti. A dry, publicly humorless, enlightened man who was uniquely lovable. His powerful vibrations can still be felt at the Krishnamurti Library and Study Center at Ojai, California. http://www.jkrishnamurti.org/index.php

@aliwine, Your story sounds amazing. I’ve been wanting to start meditating for a while but every time I start something comes up. Besides that though, do you really feel good after you’ve done it? I’m afraid to go too deep and become all introspective when socializing.
Thoughts?

@lolivia, hey, just thought i’d tell you that no one finds meditation fun or interesting. its a time where you remain quiet and are aware of even the concepts of boring, fun or interesting. you observe yourself from a placeless place where you cannot be a particular thing doing the observing. only self observation can make this more clear, so good luck. remember, even attempts at trying to meditate or overcome the boredom are ‘seen’ and not to be taken as you ;)
