Happy Saturday all! SO...I'm new to embracing Buddhism, and I am new to meditation. I've maybe completed 10 or so short sessions, each between 7 and 9 minutes. This morning, something very strange happened. I was trying to just "be with the darkness", meaning that I had my eyes closed and I was just focusing on that blackness. Off to the right a bit in this black field a hazy red point began to materialize. Before long, it had become a perfectly-formed red tear drop. It was incredibly vivid and distinct. After a second or two, it began to slowly rise up and then disappeared. This scared me a bit so I opened my eyes. I closed them again a few seconds later...and within about 10 seconds, this tear drop appeared in the same way, and floated up and disappeared. During this second time, I was in awe of it, and felt very happy and smiled.
Has anybody experienced anything similar?
It was freaky....
