It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
You're just sitting, minding your own business, then out of the blue an itch appears on some part of the body eg, the ear, nose, eyelid, back. etc etc... If left alone, after a while it begins to dissipate...
The Itch......Have you ever explored where it comes from ?
And where it goes ?
Is it physical or mental ?
Or both ?
In a past life ( as an Urban Pestologist ) I've dealt with people who had "Delusional parasitosis" they were convinced that there were tiny bugs crawling over their skin, making them itch....they would show you tiny pieces of material ( eg tiny bits of thread or a particle of sorts) saying that this was one of the tiny bug, and to try to convince them that there were no bugs there, they would look at you like you were delusional because you couldn't see them
When an itch appears during meditation, if one sits patiently it eventually dissipates..Was something really there ? Or just imagination ?
Just some food for thought when an itch decides to join you on the cushion
BTW there are obvious causes for the itch..... hairs, clothing/fabric, 'real' tiny bugs, etc etc, but on many occasions there's just the itch sans obvious cause....
PS I bet some who read this will start to feel itchy
