  6. Ill health and Coping Skills - Dec 2016

    I'm so grateful I made my way back to Vipassana; I'm so grateful I got sequencing problems and took the pills in the wrong order, and lived to say it plainly: I came as close as I ever hope to giving up because of pain, isolation, being ostracized by religious persons who said Jesus is...
  7. [INFJ] Weird meditation experience

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    Hello Community. =) Today I tried meditation out for the first time. I had a binaural Beat and I was calming down to it. As I let go my thoughts (I had my eyes closed) there was a big black space (this one you see when you close your eyes). As I let go my thoughts a grey thing was coming closer...
  8. Just like holding off scratching your back

    Meditation, especially deep meditation, is just like not scratching your back. You do not go to it. The impulse is there but you must not go there. This becomes a terrible torture. It's a struggle with yourself, to master yourself. All sorts of things "pop up" and your attention goes to it...
  9. [INTJ] Meditation

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    INTJs think. Alot. Now, I know as much as any of you that this can be as problematic as it can useful. Personally, I tend to be an anxious over thinker, "what if this happens?", "what if that happens?", "I didn't study enough for this test", "I'm so anxious about the party this evening, what am...

People are not allowed to talk, read, use other means of distraction..10 days of surrendering to self...

  17. [INFJ] INFJs and meditation vs. Fi + Si

    INFJ Forum - The Protectors
    I've spent a few days with an ENFP friend who's very big into meditation. From the sound of it vipassana meditation seems very much to line up with his needs and strengths as somone with secondary Fi and tertiary Si. The meditation encourages a disconnection from everything except the body, to...
