    It's possible I may have gone into trance without knowing it. I get into really deep thought sometimes Is that the same as trance? Is there a difference between being in trance and just being 404?

    If I am alone and put myself in trance how can I bring myself out of it?

    If I want to go into trance for a specific reason how do I control what I am thinking about and seeing when trance itself is a loss of control?

    You ask a series of excellent questions.

    I'll give you my answers in a few.

    to add to that, How do control what your body does while in 'trance', every time I 'meditate' I 'awaken' after my head hits the wall or the floor only to straighten back up and go back into 'trance', also, how does one RECIEVE the answers to the questions posed during such a state? are their signs? how does one interpret them? How does one RECIEVE the messages from the ancestors (meaning some VERY wise aunts and uncles of mine) when you 'feel' a presence in a sense that cannot be described in words...

    also, there are CD's designed to induce certain brainwaves and such, once you use these it may make things easier...look up Dr. Jefferey Thompson.


    :spinstar: peace...

    seriously, while it happens I do not 'feel' any pain only a slight sensation of movement...sometimes I even slide off the chair onto the floor.....

    Thank goodness theres no pain.

    Are you making sure your feet are grounded properly, your back straight, and your hands are in the right place? I read somewhere it's best to sit on the floor with your legs crossed. Also, you can try meditating while laying on your side. I can't remember which side it best to lay on though.

    Just the other night I was trying to will myself straight into sleep. It was late at night, just a few hours before work, and I was wide awake. I did slip into some kind of relaxed state but before it could catch hold I kept fighting it. Why I didn't just let it happen I don't know because now I can't do it again. Ended up awake the next two hours, sheesh.

    I'm serious, brotha, make sure there are no sharp objects within your immediate vicinity. Like purple said, you might want to start off on the floor. If you come back and tell us you fell off the floor then I don't know what to say. But I know the god will come back with a series of excellent answers.

    Been there, man. There's this fear that we are figting for our lives and if we just accept what's happening we will die. That's why I'm trying to find out about this because knowledge and understanding are the only things that can overcome our fear of the unknown.
