Leaving the Body.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I am writing from Serbia and I mostly got familiar with your thinking via Internet. I started to practice meditation three months ago for the first time in my life. In most cases, during meditation I feel that my brain is completely empty and calm, I feel peace and relaxation in every part of my body but I’ve never had feeling of being connected to the rest of the universe for a longer period of time, I feel it for a second and then it goes away.  Anyway, last night during meditation I had strange feeling which I can’t totally explain. I felt as if my spirit was leaving my body, or at least I thought that it was happening. I felt sudden rush of energy and hotness  going from my stomach through upper part of the body and leaving body. I had this feeling couple of times before but only in my dream and during periods when I was in pretty dark place.  It was terrifying experience in my sleep but last night I wasn’t terrified. I felt fear and peace at the same time. When this  feeling of leaving body occurred I quit meditation because I didn’t know what was happening to me. Can you please explain  what happened and what to do if it happens again? Is it somehow dangerous?


This meditation experience is not dangerous at all. The hot energy moving up the torso is kundalini energy and it is a positive indication that old blocks to growth are being cleared out. It is your own primal life force that is awakening, so you do not need to fear it. As non-local consciousness becomes aware of its own unbounded nature, it feels liberated from bodily limitations, and we sometimes interpret this as our spirit leaving the body. In fact consciousness isn’t going anywhere, because consciousness is already everywhere. In fact it is this experience of non-local awareness that is your connection to the universe.
