Date: October 04
Type: Meditation on inner sounds (with earplugs)
Time: 08:45 a.m.
Duration: 53 minutes (open)
Posture: Seated on chair
Body: Eyes closed,
- tongue tip to pallet,
- hands on knees-index finger touching thumb.
Room Condition: Darkened room
- Two candles
- Essential Oil - (Bergamot+water on burner)
Pre-session: Sip of water
- full body stretch (3 times).
Mind Chatter: Medium.
Waves of bliss: None.
Experience: Fair Session. Back to basics?
Result: Still not resolved.
Tried repeating yesterday's action of tracking inner sounds as they
surfaced. The first one or two came as usual - then a complete blank. Felt
as if I was being shut out. I waited for a very long time but the flow of
inner sounds did not come.
I tried a "jump start" with a set of "special" ;-) thoughts. This did the
trick of triggering a flood of thoughts and inner sounds related to the
"special" activity. However, after the thoughts subsided, I went back to an
absence of inner sounds - an absence of the usual flow of inner sounds. I
tried a second jump start but got the same result.
Decided to go back to basics. Reverted to physical relaxation and simply
wallowed in the peace of relaxation and extended periods of non-thought.
Flooded my body with healing signals to help my body recover from
yesterday's long gym session.
Although I could not resolve yesterday's results, I could at least enjoy a
refreshing period of calm. Maybe its time to suspend the experiments and go
back to basics for a few days?
