My body is shaking/vibrating during meditation

Hello, 

i have such problem, that when i meditate my body starts vibrating (like moving forward and backward) repeatedly. I think, something is really wrong with me. 

Can you tell me why is this happening? 

Also i don’t know if i have cool breeze on my palms and fontanelle. Maybe i just imagine, that there is something like cool breeze. 

I know, it is impossible to describe this cool breeze, but maybe someone could? I often feel it during my day. Thats why i don’t know is it normal or is it from meditation. 

 

Thank you for your advises ;) 

 

P.S. i have been practicing Sahaja Yoga for more than 1,5 year, but irregulary (because i often feel tired and don’t want to spend time on meditating). Also i smoke marijuana, like once a week.embarassed

Hi Jaunuolis,

Sometimes people feel their body moving during meditation – as you say, shaking, or it could also be something like a rocking motion. This is especially common when you’re just starting out. It does indicate some imbalance within (in the same way heat does) so if you want to improve, it’s important to work on yourself: like to meditate regularly and to footsoak (http://www.freemeditation.com/…..oaking.gif).

If you don’t keep up with meditation regularly it’s more difficult to work through these things. Also, smoking marijuana will negatively affect your subtle system and make it more difficult to meditate. It can also make you lethargic, which might be part of the reason you don’t feel like meditating. So, again if you want things to improve you should quit.

We are lucky to be able to experience the awakening of the energy within, and this happens quite easily and spontaneously. But we have to remember that through our actions and experiences we have done some damage to our chakras, which takes some work to clear out. It is completely up to you how far to go with it, but if you really want to make some progress it takes some persistence (regular meditation) and in some cases, lifestyle changes (quitting drugs).

What you have felt is likely the cool breeze - it can be quite subtle. Also sometimes we can feel it throughout the day, not just when we are meditating – so that is a good sign.

I am sure that if you make meditation a regular part of your routine, you will start to see some changes for the better!

Good luck,

Sarah

Hi Sarah G,

Thanks for your advice.

I will try to meditate regularly.

I also attend sahaja yoga meetings and do footsoakings, but recently I noticed that the middle of my palm is tingling every time I meditate. As I know, it means that my Sahasrara chakra is blocked. (I found in internet, that it means I don’t believe in God, but thats not true – i believe in nature, pagan religion). Maybe this is bad?

I do believe in Gods, Buddah, even Allah but not religiously. It’s just like you believe a fact or a truth. I still feel my palm tingling or heating. I know it is because my mind was not in peace at that time and through meditation, the balance was being restored.

 

As for belief in Gods, I think it’s more important to believe that Gods are inside oneself than just to believe they exist.

Dear Jaunuolis,

Yes, the center of the palm is a projection of Sahasrara chakra, while the area around it is the projection of Void, so depending on where exactly you feel the tingling, it might be a sign of blockage in one or the other.

Both Sahasrara chakra and void, however, are deeply rooted in truth, which is absolute, and they do become blocked if we accept, believe in or do things that go against that absolute truth. It is possible that some aspects of your beliefe system are not true, but it’s also possible that the blockage is not the result of your beliefs, but rather of your actions.

For example, the tingling in the palm is could be the direct result of smoking marijuana, since all drugs that alter our consciousness take us rapidly out of balance, and result in the blockage of both void and Sahasrara.

Do you feel the tingling of the left palm, or right, or both?

Dear Jaunuolis,

                          As you said that your body vibrates and moves forward-backward, I thing there not much to worry.

  I can’t say that it the same symptoms or not but there are some cases where our body suddenly move. It happens when our attention during meditation is lost. So to bring you back your mother kundalini gives you sudden movement and something like that. And the best cure is Footsoak and obviously regular meditation.

As you know, the right side is that of action, so you might want to look at what you are doing that might be going againt the divine principles, and is causing that blockage in Sahasrara.

Hi,

I don’t really have an answer to your questions, perhaps someone else will.

I just tell myself I have to at least sit down and give it a chance twice a day. I owe that to my Spirit. Then no matter tired or not, I sit down and see what happens. Sometimes I cannot reach thoughtless state. Then I just try again next time and it works.

It might be helpful though, if you change the time when you usually meditate – find 10-15 minutes during the time of day when you are usually not tired, and do it then.
