Title: Feeling of flying
Post by: heret on January 26, 2009, 12:06:04 PM
I have been practising vipassana for 7 months, have been following this forum as well. Some time ago I got new experience during my meditation and even if I have an opportunity to clear it up in some months in my next course, I hope somebody here can give me some comments.
Often when I start anapana, I feel that I don’t sit on the floor anymore, but like a meter above in the air. At the same time I can still feel my body and observe every sensation. I used to open my eye a bit and look if I am still in my sitting-place, but closing my eyes again the same feeling will come around. So I am wondering if this is just a trick of my mind or there is some explanation to that feeling.
Thank you very much.
Heret
