Result: Cold symptoms influenced session.
Fairly serious cold symptoms; sneezing and a runny nose. Just after I
started my meditation I had to stop and blow my nose. I also had muscle
aches from yesterday's exercise at the gym.
A few minutes into the meditation session almost all symptoms cleared.
Amazed. Felt like I had left my body. Where was the cold?
Good sensation of transitions between stages.
Coming out of meditation, some slight symptoms returned, but no sneezing, no
"Die before you die" - simulated moments before my death. What would go
through my mind? Peace, no thought?
