Posting your meditation journal here is an excellent opportunity to share
your meditation experience so others can learn from your insights and
reflect on their own practice. You will find that posting a journal is a
good motivator for regular, progressive meditation. Please use any format
you wish. Feel free to ask questions in your post, respond to questions in
other posts and comment on any aspect of each entry. While meditating, be
careful to avoid a mind commentary that anticipates posting a journal entry
as this can distract from your meditation session. Avoid judging your
sessions based on what you read posted by others.

Date: July 02
Type: Meditation on inner sounds (with earplugs)
Variation: Focus on breath
Time: 08:15 a.m.
Duration: 72 minutes (open)
Posture: Seated on chair
Body: Eyes closed, tongue tip to pallet, hands on knees-index finger
Condition: Dark room. Candles. Incense. Essential Oil - (Bergamot
+ water on burner). Bell.
Mind Chatter: Low.
Waves of bliss: 2-4 light waves (not induced).
Experience: Good session.
Notes: Uneventful session on the surface. Low mind chatter. Relaxing.
Applied new techniques effectively. Went quite deep. Surprisingly long
session considering so little surface activity.
Occasional mind chatter included a humorous Tom and Jerry clip. Sensed some
activity below the surface but nothing came into my consciousness. For
instance, I heard a brief, faint bell-like sound in my left ear. Had a few
light waves of bliss that were not induced.
Questions: No questions today. Simply a satisfying, relaxing session.
