Hey YogaKat i was wondering if you've ever experienced the void whilst meditating, or had any other strange experiences since you started meditating?..I never started myself until i was 39 yrs old, but I've got to say I've been amazed by it all. :-)
As far as amazing . . . I have felt God hugging me- caresses through vibrations. I have noticed that certain intruding random thoughts create positive feelings . . . then I know I'm on the right track. I have never got to the void . . . ?
Lay there really relaxed meditating in a dark room, & try to see through your eye lids..Now obviously you can't see through them, but that's how i experienced the void (only once though)..Whilst waiting to see, you can't think at the same time. :
Hey Ian Moon - while I was meditating this am . . . I realized I experience the opposite of a void. I can only describe it as purified sexual energy . . . orgasmic but in a spiritual rather than physical way.
Thank you for Bhakti Yoga . . . I looked it up on Wikipedia and am looking forward to further research. I recently discovered Sahaja Yoga, but alas The Mother recently passed from this earth. I feel certain a worthy soul will appear in my life soon.
I did not know that she passed. There are essentially four forms of Yoga. Bhakti (devotional); Karma ( selfless action) Gjnana (the way of knowledge) and Raja with it's mystical off-shoots. One follows the way of the mind or that of the Heart.
I am certainly going to try this . . . it makes a lot of sense, but the ability to be thoughtlessly aware doesn't come easy. Breathing and chanting are what chase away those random thoughts . . . so for a lot of people thats the best place to start.
