For beginners who struggle clearing their mind, I strongly suggest hypnosis capsules on youtube or other websites. It will help you understand what it is to be in trance. It helped me a lot. Hypnosis is also soooo enjoyable. Stay clear!

Dude I let my mind loose but keep my possession and not move my mind wanders it's almost like lucid dreaming but you don't have to wake up after five minutes time flies and hunger isn't there the only time o noticed was before I started enetering this state it started with it lasting 10-15 minutes then my mind would jolt but now I need to set alarms to get out of it I remember the first time I properly got into the state I only come out from the hunger pangs after doing it from 4 in the morning till 6 in the evening

Author rocky toombstone ( ago)
after a while is it normal to see things? without realising that you are meditating? kinda like dreaming only you aren't asleep, also why 5 minutes for beginners? it usually takes me 10-15 mins to get into a nice relaxed state.

"once the sun shineth upon a concave mirror, or on a lens that is convex, all its heat will be concentrated on a single point and that one point will burn the hottest. Thus" "focus one’s thinking on a single point so that it will become an effective force." - Abdu’l-Bahá

Well if its so powerful then doesn't the lotus position not matter especially if ones unable to be flexible physically enough to do so? Cuz man i can no longer do what this monk its doing with the feet my knees in my 20s went out now my 30s no way that's happening. have several forms of severe psoariatic and rhuematoid and a few other but these2 are the most painful2 ttpes one can be afflicted with. any way yeah I'm in that category of always falling asleep when i tried but can't assume the proper position. but most of my times spent in bed anyway so I've got insomnia & take a lot of medication for the pain. but there's times that makes me drowsy where i used to think (maybe it still does help open the channels etc idk much about it but it just felt like it would be more beneficial at that time under the influence of say opiods n not feel the pains that always takes me out of concentration! an ache a pain etc. so i wait now till i wake up in the am &just lay in bed an hr or2 before getting up&just try to manifest the changes i want to see&funny thing is I'm seeing those things which i meditated briefly on&only remembered i did so when i began to meditate again & go down the list i was reminded &saw what id already begun to reap. interesting ik there's something to it cuzeven the bible says to do so but on HisWord but that is from a possibly tainted version He may have in fact plausibly told us & it was changed or seen as Gnosticism to the catholics what wrote in short todays modern bibles ergo it may not be wrong to meditate on what we want out of life&on the Word of God & to ask His will. as isnt meditation just another form of prayer albiet maybe most pure &powerful or a more powerful than a simple saying of grace before a meal or praying when distracted etc.but lets digress)
so now i wait till I'm wide awake or even sick WD makes concentration hard! Cuz my mind races have anxiety as well which makes it difficult at times especially when i have racing thoughts but i also find that when i don't have this going on i can easily clear all Mt thoughts for a good 10 seconds which they say is the hardest thing when starting. but after that everything comes pooring back in like a flood.
I've heard techniques say think of going deep into the earth with an anchor and visualize that u tie it off why? Would this not be like putting training wheels on? or are they afraid their souls gonna leave n not come back? Get lost etc? lol cuz well idk i like to think i cab skip that part since in the interest of time I'll just use the word that most closely reps my belief systems but i dont like as it didnt exist till after ya guessed it Catholicism! ( they really did a number on spirituality everything even in the bible that allows man to reach ANYTHING DIVINE! *yet ITS ALREADY INSIDE OF US! WE JUST NEED ACCEPT BELIEVE & ALLOW HIM IN HE KNOCKS QUIET&SUBTLE WHILE THE OTHER SIDE AKA EVIL SCREAMS YELLS ACTS OUT FOR ATTENTION AND EVEN COMES AS AN "ANGEL OF LOVE& LIGHT" but who are these men Catholicism to say what God did and did not want in His Word?! They took what THEY DEEMED AS TABOO OR MAGIC WITCH CRAFT ETC AND BANNED IT REMOVED SEVERAL BOOKS FROM THE BIBLE! this was all the book burnings stuff even as early as ww2.but lets digress some more shall we) well i guess I've made my points tho. and this is already a lot to digest

Author Ashbringer36 ( ago)
Hey guys, I'm a bit confused about how this medidtation thing, I'm giving it a shot, started just a few days ago but this mindfullness thing, I might be overthinking it.
What kind of words should i be hearing in my head in the form of my thoughts, "Breath in, breath out" just preaching that in my head as I went was the one that kept me best on task,

Is my head supposed to be lacking in thought words or am I overthinking things?

You can meditate in any position you sit or lie in my friend. Meditation in Lotus flower position can be painfull for many people. Plus it can generate back problems. Just learned this from a Tibetan master... And above all, out of experience, LOGICAL wise there is no correct physical position to sit or lie in to manage the brainflow.  Meditation can be done driving the car, while cooking,... Anywhere you can meditate! If you are falling asleep it is a sign that you are tired or simply not have the energy to focus. Yes... meditation asks for some kind of mental energy. If you are always tired and stressed that you have to do this or that, it could be you have to question the climate you live in! Work, kids, housekeeping,... Meditation is often thought to be a solution for 'modern' daily life while if you see the monks in Tibet, they do not work many hours with a full-on tempo. The monks do not have to drive cars in rush hours. They don't have to get the kids from school, bringing them to the sportclub, go to the fitness themselves, cook shitty food, pass the garage to fix the car, pickup the new iphone 20,... Interestingly I remember people getting more stress hormones from meditating! Meditation became task number 148 of the day.

Should I play some meditation music during the meditation session?

Author eXileF ( ago)
When I was younger I used to play a lot of Gran Turismo and Need for Speed. While I played an endurance race or a longer race I got in a hyper sleep or something and I felt like asleep but was still braking and cornering and setting laps. I now realise that I was meditating while playing a game! lol.
Although I've stopped gaming since it's less fun and stuff soo yeah...
