During Meditation

Post by vinnielajoya »

During Meditation, before I reach Oneness, my whole body starts to teeter back and forth and with each exhale It teeters more and more, sometimes I have to concentrate on stilling myself before my head hits the floor. Is this my chi awakening\circulating? If not what is it. I have heard about shaking while getting the Microcosmic Orbit going in the right direction, But I haven't heard of tilting back and forth.

Hi,
First thing first, what kind of meditation do you practice?
2. What you call reaching oneness?
3. We are not following any chi meditation school of someting alike. We are disciples of tao-chia, the philosophical Taoism. Our meditation techniques doesn't aim at the chi control or other such attainment.

I call oneness when in deep meditation I feel as though i am floating above my body and in unity with everything. At this point i feel separate from my body and yet in unity with all things.
The Meditation I practice is a form of Tien Tao Chi Kung and is an attempt to unify the Kan and Li, I am fairly new at the concepts so forgive me if I am lacking the terminology.

Perhaps you did this meditation by forcing the floating and therefore your body is trembling? One should acquire the unity without force but deeply entering the state of complete stillness.

I am not a specialist but I wonder how can one unite kan and Li, that is, water and fire without causing a great mess?

I am not sure about this. I think you should ask the master or intructor who trained you in this! Or you may simply do a Google search for forum of your interest?

In meditation sometime when you feel teeter on that time you have to short the meditation time for ex: 5 mins to 10 mins.
