I'm learning Buddhist meditation, and although I've been interested in Buddhism for years, I'm not religiously inclined, so I recently found a course for non-buddhists.
Anyway, I find if I do any body-focused meditation, e.g. body of light or focusing on that point below the heart (sorry can't remember what it's called), I very quickly find that I start to get tingling/prickling sensations which can last for a couple of hours. It's not usually unpleasant, but I am interested to find out how common this was, and whether I should be trying to stop it.
I know I should probably ask in the class, but I'm a bit shy about it.
I'm a little divorced from my body, I tend to live inside my own head, so I was wondering if it was just due to the fact I have to focus on my physicality in some way as the object of these meditations that brings all these sensations out.
Sorry if this doesn't make any sense.
