Keep wondering if I'm "doing it right"
Anyone dealing with these doubts while meditating? My thoughts are usually just spurting out in between my breaths and sometimes I catch myself thinking about focusing on my breath instead of just focusing on the actual breath.
This happens A LOT actually. I do tend to view my thought's as mental events arising in the present, but when I do that it's like a looping effect occurs ("Hey, I was thinking about my breath...." "Hey! I was thinking about my breath..." and so forth.
I also tend to consciously breathe instead of actually feeling it in the moment. Is it normal to have this judgemental mind and doubts constantly during meditation? The subtle differences between thought and actual sensory input seems so subtle sometimes. Any help and advice is welcomed
