    I meditated with amethyst,

    pink rose quartz, hemitite and ethiopian opal. Now I feel extremely tired. I thought it would make me feel good, not drain me. Is that normal? I didn't feel that way while meditating.

    Freedom And Peace

    I meditate because it helps me to come into my awareness, my true self. A powerful moment when emotions come up, when I release the pent-up tension in the body, mind, heart, and spirit. A way I have found to stay calm in certain situations like thunderstorms, loud music and...

    I've been struggling

    because I get a tingling sensation in my thumb and finger and it feels like they are going to catch fire. I try to draw my focus away. Should I try driving my focus deep into this sensation?

    Non-meditating - Meditative State

    People "meditate" for many different reasons. Some call it meditation when it is really just sitting quietly and thinking over their problems. To me this is not mediation. Meditation to me is reaching a state of absolute stillness and emptiness. While in this state, I am not...

    and worry. They were still there during my morning meditation. But it's fine; the meditation helped to calm my mind. And I'm learning to be ok with the thoughts that arise.

    For Spiritual and Mental Sanity
