Oh god, yes. it's usually recommended to precede meditation with a cleansing pranayama/breath-energy practice. Alternate nostril breathing is stabilizing and calming.
I'm fighting some brain wiring patterns here, it's the only thing I can think of to explain the symptoms I'm getting after meditation - (the during part feels wonderful!).
Interesting to see where this thread went. I'll have to see what Course in Miracles is.
What's bothering me most about the recent developments is the difference in the way I am inside and the way I see "my" words, behavior, even singing, everything really, coming out in the outside. What I observe being said, done, doesn't reflect the way I feel myself being on the inside. Like I don't know how to act in the world according to how I feel myself to be.
Did that make any sense at all?
