    You must learn to control the tendency of mind to wander into the material world, grasshopper.

    I focus on counting numbers and drawing them in my head as clearly as possible, remove all other thoughts and total focus on 1... 2... 3...

    I have stopped meditating, don't have time for it anymore and never really had any use for it either. A concentrated rest is better, to focus on a problem at hand and find a solution.

    "What do you see when you meditate?"

    The inside of my eyelids...I keep my eyes closed.

    Do you actually see them? Don't the eyes have a tendency to roll up when the eyelids are closed, especially if you are lying down? Can you see the inside of the eyecavity too?

    Just close your eyes, and stand in front of a light bulb...Do you not see light?

    If you do, it would be thru your closed eyelids..Hence you CAN see the inside of said eyelids.

    The eye cavity, etc...I have no idea about.

    hypnogogic imagery if I am tired. Usually from blackness fades basic patterns, waves of light pulse, and if you have the skill of seeing without moving your eyes, you can watch the dreams fade into existence. From patterns emerge simple shapes, and they become 3d and more real. Usually if I'm very tired I can have full-blown visuals after 20 minutes.

    However I'm meditating during the day, the point is not to see any images. Focus on one thing - breath. Looking at images is not focusing on breath.

    and to the person who thought they were levitating, it's very normal in meditation to lose your sense of space. so you were probably on the correct path.

    When I meditate I usually start drifting away into my mind, relaxing, letting my subconscious mind transcend into a dark abyss. I've been meditating for about 8 months already and usually see different colors or a stream of light swirling in different directions. But I've seen something different this time. I saw a door, and this door wasn't just an ordinary door. I was suddenly in space, surrounded by starts and galaxies. The door was invisible but I can see the outline of it, it was like light was coming through inside the door. It was so random and a new experience to me I came straight back to myself. If anyone knows what this means or can help me out with my vision of what I am seeing, I am all ears. Thank you.

    Much Love,
    Enoch

    On Meditation...I see a world beyond ours that is as big as the Universe and has all our passed-away people in spirits working towards a better Universe in to the future...some of them come here after they set up the plan to work on....just like Star Trek...

    I do a Chan practice similar to Silent Illumination with eyes half closed. Visual perception is not part of the process and when im good and concentrated i cant say that i see much at all. The eyes tend to sort of shut off after a few minutes or so, probably because one is "looking" inward.

    When I meditated (I do not meditate now having got all my answers), I did not see anything even when my eyes were open.
