This is the third video in the series covering various experiences that happen during meditation as you become concentrated and your mind slows down – and eventually – stops.
When the mind stops – many experiences begin. The experiences seem almost surreal or other-worldly at times. They are bizarre and sometimes even scary. It’s frightening to lose control or to give control away. This is part of the reason for creating these videos – to show you that these are normal experiences within the context of meditation – and you can go through them without any permanent harm or dysfunction. Sounds intense – right? They can be!
Video – Breath Slowing and Mind Stopping >
When you are meditating and you have a weird situation or experience in your mind you should know that there is very little or no chance at all of you damaging your mind. I have had hundreds of experiences that were seemingly paranormal or surreal and I have never had a permanent negative change result.
These experiences are always temporary. Even the one lasting change that resulted, it is temporary in that I can choose to live and act and work and be as Vern is, or I can choose to be in the perfectly quiet flat mind state.
