I had an interesting experience today in meditation. I had just finished some yogic breathing exercises and decided to practice Zen no mind Munin (sometimes called Mushin) anyway, I was breathing in time to my heart beat and my breath actually became visible to me in the form of a pulsing light. It was at the center of my visual field and a little upwards (corresponding to the third eye/spiritual eye)...gradually it became more and more brilliant. It began to take on a purple and then a bluish color. It became more and more powerful...it started to fill my whole visual field! I got distracted and lost the meditation, so I don't know where it was going. Now some of you might be saying oh big deal, but I never really am able to visualize all the well. If I'm told to imagine something I'll conceptualize it in my mind, but I won't *see* it. I won't visualize it...this time it was totally different I could see the color blue like it was plain as the sky. What's even more interesting is that this meditation is performed with the eyes closed...and I wasn't trying to visualize anything. Any thoughts as to what this was?
