I am new to this group and have a question on meditation. I want to describe
an experience I had during meditation and ask for an explanation and
guidance on what to do next.
About a year ago, after about 6 months of meditation practice I had a
peculiar experience. One day, out of nowhere, came a loud sound inside my
head like a struck bell getting louder and louder then exploding, then
silence. Afterwards I felt a kind of bliss flowing through me - it was a
very pleasant feeling. On my good meditation sessions (70% of the time) I am
able to recreate these feelings after a few minutes. I have a sense that
there is more in this direction but I am a bit weary to continue without
guidance. I have suspended my meditation practice for the last 3 months as I
re-examine my approach and motivation. I am almost ready to re-start.
What was this experience? Should I continue to recreate it? What can I
expect to happen in the future?
I look forward to any guidance.
