Meditation Before Bed.


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


Dear Dr. Chopra, I have been meditating for a little more than 5 years now. Sometimes, when I go to bed after meditation, from somewhere within the body, there is a pulsating, vibrating feeling. It usually happens when I'm just about to fall asleep. I feel like I'm getting sucked into a whirlpool and have no way of stopping myself. I am thrilled and scared at the same time, but mostly scared. I probably should relax, but cannot, and almost automatically start praying that it stops. It lasts for maybe 20 secs, and then passes away. I would be grateful if you let me know what this could mean, and if there is anything I should or should not be doing. Thanks in advance.


This is likely due to the fluidity of your awareness carrying over from meditation into sleep. The transitions from waking state to sleeping state of consciousness will generally follow a normal step-by-step pattern. But if you are just coming out of meditation where you have been quickly moving from one level of subtle awareness to the next over and over, it can occasionally interrupt the normal stages of falling asleep. This is one of the reasons why most meditation teachings specify that you should meditate in the morning and afternoon followed by lengthy periods of daily activity. That activity will integrate your meditation experiences and reset your normal rhythms and patterns of waking consciousness as well.

    Dude. Your astral projecting. It`s nothing bad! In fact it is very great. That is where I want to go! Do some research on astral projecting and you will know exactly what talking about. Everything you just explained leads to projecting.

    Nice tips Deepak. My Hatha yoga book recommends focusing on the feet before going to bed because it is far from the mind and you can get to sleep more easily. Also Sadhguru Jaggi recommends not sleeping with your head to the north if you live in the north hemisphere and not to south if you live in the southern hemisphere.
