Experiencing energy surges in the body
I have read your books, How to Know God, Spontaneous Fulfillment, 7 Spiritual Laws. I meditate 2 – 3 times a day. Here is the question- I have experienced something but not what it sounds like I should be. You speak of a gap where there is no thought. That’s where spirit is. I read somewhere else that what I am experiencing may be energy in my body. What happens is this – I can feel this feeling deep within me, it starts in different places, sometimes my heart, sometimes my stomach region or my head. It gets stronger and stronger and then I HAVE to squeeze my eyes tightly, a feeling overwhelms my body, every hair on by body is feeling, my breath gets faster. When my eyes are “forced shut” I see usually a look of moving through space. Sometimes I see places or people but only in shadow. It can last from a few seconds to maybe 30 seconds and drifts away. Sometimes there will be one or two during a 20 minutes session but sometimes they barely stop 2,3,4 in a row. At the end, my breathing seems to stop for 10 -15 seconds and then it passes. These moments are now starting to happen more and more, throughout my day. They seem to be changing a little though. I feel like I am creating all this in my head. I feel confused and discouraged. I have tried to not feel these but I cannot stop it. I feel as though I’m am headed in a wrong direction. I really need your help. This does not sound like I am getting in touch with Spirit at all yet the experiences are so beautiful sometimes I cry. Thank you for your time.
