Lesson 247 - Nausea
Date: Wed Jan 12, 2005 0:18pm
New Members: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the web archive, as previous
lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why
Q: I have been practicing now for just over two months and I am at the stage of adding
Mulabandha and Sambhavi to my spinal breathing. Over the last week or so I have noticed a
slight feeling of nausea during meditation, in some cases this has persisted for some time
after. Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong?
A: Queasy feelings during or after meditation are rare, but do happen sometimes. Usually
it will pass after a few sessions. If it doesn't, then maybe back off on meditation time a
bit until comfort returns. Once you have found stability, you can creep the time back
gradually, as desired. This is a simple application of self-pacing.
Of course, it could be a bug in your body too, in which case it will pass as your immune
system deals with it. The procedure in sitting practices will be the same. We don't force
our practices when there is excessive discomfort.
I wish you all success on your chosen spiritual path.
The guru is in you.
