In this second video, I go over some of what happens as you try to concentrate on the breath and finally are able to. I detail what is perhaps my first strange experience as the mind focused so intensely on one small sense object – the breath going in and out of the nose. It is during the experience of an intensely concentrated mind that you begin to understand how powerful the mind really is.
I had many odd – and sometimes scary – experiences during meditation. None of them were harmful in the long term. I urge you to watch this series of videos if you are beginning meditation – to give yourself a good idea of what is a normal experience. It will alleviate some of your concerns, I am sure of it!
