you can do it.. but its not vipassana.... if there really is good energy going in when you breath in then know there is good energy when I breath in. If you dont know there is good energy coming in when you breath in then know that you dont know..

Okay, what kind of meditation it is then ?
Because i have anxiety and if i think these toughts while meditating
its going to help me in everyday life.
But also i know that you have to set your mind free, getting toughts and letting them go.
But its damn HARD !
One time i felt like i was under the tree, felt like buddha, demons attacking me.
Its crazy !

I try not to have any expectations. I just do it. Whether I'm attending to sensation of breathing or simply sitting in awareness, if something outside of what I'm attending comes along I let it go and gently bring myself back to attending.

I suppose that's one way to frame it? Perhaps another way is to simply accept it's a process you decided to undertake and follow it to wherever it might lead?
