Deep Meditation – My First Experience
Several days… I just sat there, following the instructions of how to meditate. I had read several articles on deep meditation for beginners and I thought it would be easy for me to do it, but it surely was not. I think I had spent almost a month trying to understand what I was supposed to do, actually. There was so much going on in my mind back then that I barely knew how to stop the storm of thoughts.
The worst was not the war between my mind and my thoughts; the worst was that the more I tried to calm down my thoughts, the harder it seemed. I thought it was time for me to give up because I was just not feeling anything at all.
Then… I came across an article on the colors of different Chakras. I don’t know why, but The Third Eye Chakra had always fascinated me, even though I was told to start either with The Crown Chakra or with The Root Chakra.
The Day I Started Deep Meditation:
One day, it was drizzling outside. There was no one in my house, except for my grandmother. She was resting on the couch, so I decided to focus on the third eye, once more, hoping for it to not be another failed attempt.
This time, I did not sit, but I got down on the ground and rested myself on my back. I began calming my body, right from the toes to my head. Instead of not focusing on anything, I began focusing on every single part of my body and mentally kept telling it to calm down and relax. My breaths began getting deeper and longer. I inhaled from the nose and exhaled from my mouth. I really wanted to know how deep meditation felt. After a few moments, I felt numb. I don’t remember how I breathed after I saw a light purple sparkle right in the middle of my forehead. I had an epiphany that my Third Eye Chakra was not between the brows, but a little above.
My Experience with Deep Meditation:
The purple sparkle turned out to be my goal. I kept focusing on it. To be honest, I don’t remember hearing anything around me at all. The only thing I kept doing was focusing on the purple sparkle, which grew in size and turned deeper as it came closer. From a tiny sparkle, it turned out to be a big ball of shining purple light.
I don’t remember what I felt or what I saw after that. All I know is that I woke up to the sound of my grandmother calling out my name and interrupting my deep meditation phase. When I woke up, I had goose bumps on my skin and there was a slight pain in the middle of my forehead. My breaths were not normal and it took me about one complete minute to feel my body back into the real world.
It may sound scary to you, but the experience was something that I would cherish all my life.
