Tools for Empaths

From the moment my mind gets quiet during meditation my whole body tingles. It starts in my feet and my hands and works it's way to my torso then my head. Sometimes I can feel this for hours after meditation . But not always. One time I was listening to a guided chakra meditation I found on YouTube . When it got to the third chakra I felt what I can only describe as an energy explosion. I'm not sure what happened? A blockage cleared maybe? Ever since then when I meditate and my mind is quiet I get the tingling I described. I also get short visions. I haven't been able to make sense of them yet. I feel almost like an electrical jolt then I see the vision. But they go as quick as they come. These kinds of experiences have prompted me to keep pursuing the meditation practice. I read somewhere the key is to go into it without any expectations and just try to quiet your mind . That has worked well for me

Newbie to the Group


Empath

Welcome to the group alledius . There is alot of good info and good people in this group . something that's works for me. I meditate daily. During meditation I visualize myself sitting comfortably in God's hands. Much like a mother would hold a newborn. I ask God to show me his will for me. Also that I may be of service to anyone in need . It seems to help alot. I also use elsies technique visualizing the volume knobs if things get too intense.i have also found I can turn up the volume in the same fashion if I need to.

open mindedness


Empath

Today I ran across this article http://themindunleashed.org/2015/01/scientific-reason-perception-creates-reality.htmlLately I've been searching for a label to catagorize what I've experienced /experiencing. In the process I've ran across all kinds of theories, explanations and rational .some make sense to me. some seem as if they are only trying to validate their perception of the world. Not too long ago I used to think everything I knew was right . The final word . The alpha to the omega . The beginning and the end.but I felt as though something was missing or I was missing something. Someone told me once "the answers to all of your questions are within you " . As I started to look inwardly I found my perceptions were wrong. Based solely from fear and my own misguidings . This article got me thinking. Have I really been as open minded as I had thought? Am I still just a caveman stuck in Platos cave only seeing shadows? Or am I still in the mirrored casket surrounded by my own illusions with spears of my own egotism protruding from me as a tao te ching lesson suggests? I try not to discount anything. I have always tried to see both sides. I am open minded enough to believe there are more than shadows but am I brave enough to put my ego aside and look outside the cave?
