While meditating, you may experience a variety of things, such as falling asleep, becoming distracted with other thoughts, or feeling like you’re doing nothing. These experiences are all normal and can tell us a lot about what’s happening within us.

Falling asleep while meditating

Falling asleep while meditating is a natural experience. It’s your body’s way of releasing unconscious energy to get to the next level of awareness. When you meditate, you’re bringing your awareness to your body, the meditation tools, and the simple question, “What do I notice as I focus on myself, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually?” This can help to release tension and stress that you’ve been holding onto. As you release this energy, you may feel tired and fall asleep.

Also, if you are holding onto physical, emotional, mental, and/or spiritual foreign energy and you don’t release that energy, your body will enclose this energy in unconsciousness. It’s a protection mechanism we all employ. Without it, we would become overwhelmed with all the live experience energies we don’t release. When we start to release this unconsciousness, our consciousness can get swept up in the release, causing us to fall asleep.

Distracting thoughts

Distracting thoughts are another common experience during meditation. These thoughts can be about anything, from your to-do list to your worries about the future. It’s important to remember that these thoughts are just a part of your mind. They don’t have to control you. When you notice a distracting thought, simply acknowledge it and then bring your attention back to your body and use your 4Q Boundaries tools to release them.

Feeling like you’re not doing anything

Feeling like you’re not doing anything during meditation is also common. This is especially true if you’re new to meditation. It can take time to learn how to quiet your mind and focus on your body and the use of your 4Q Boundary tools. If you feel like you’re not doing anything, don’t worry, that feeling of “not doing anything” is your experience.

Once you realize you are aware of something, next ask this question, “How do you respond or react to this feeling?” This question is taking you to the next level of experience and is how you learn about stimuli and your response to stimuli.

What your meditation experiences tell you

All of these experiences tell us a story about what’s happening within us. The more we meditate, the more we can start to identify these various experiences and what they mean. For example, if you notice that you always fall asleep during meditation, it could be a sign that you’re carrying a lot of stress, tension, or your releasing old energy that is encapsulated by unconscious energy. If you find yourself getting distracted by thoughts about work, it could be a sign that you need to set some boundaries between your work and personal life.

Foreign energy

Some of your meditation experiences may be related to foreign energy. Foreign energy is energy within you that isn’t you and keeps you from knowing your true self. It can come from a variety of sources, such as your upbringing, your relationships, and your past experiences.

When you meditate, you may start to become more aware of foreign energy in your space. This can be a good thing, because it means that you’re starting to heal and release these energies. However, it’s important to be patient and gentle with yourself during this process. Healing from foreign energy can take time. The release of foreign energy does not take much time, it’s the integration and developing a new energetic pattern that times time.

How to validate your meditation experiences

It’s important to validate all of your meditation experiences, even if you don’t understand what they mean. Don’t judge yourself for falling asleep, getting distracted, or feeling like you’re not doing anything. Just acknowledge your experience and let it go.

The more you validate your meditation experiences, the more you will start to trust your intuition and your ability to understand yourself. You will also start to develop a deeper connection with your true self.

How to heal from foreign energy
