Lately I am coming across some strange obstacles to meditation when doing my usual 10-minute mindfulness of the breath sits. It's as if the skin on my forehead is peeling away, or the sensation of repetitive fleeting touches on my feet or other parts of the body. Different sensations which are quite rapid, almost like a kind of tinnitus, which make achieving peace in meditation quite hard sometimes.
What do you do in these kinds of instances? I've tried just powering through, dragging my mind away from these skin-sensations and back to the breath, and that does work, but it's not exactly peaceful and doesn't allow me to achieve true depth of meditation.
