I’ve noticed over the last while that a lot of people try to focus on experiencing what is commonly referred to as the “Vibrations”.
Why are they called that? Well, that’s exactly what they feel like. It feels as if your entire body (or simply just parts of your body) are actually vibrating. Now, we know that it’s not your actual physical body vibrating, because people can touch you and you’ll feel normal even though YOU think you’re body is shaking on a 9.0 on the richter scale.
While it seems to be all and good for some people to experience the vibrations (and many other sensations), you shouldn’t make them your goal… and I’ll explain why.
It’s like in the martial arts, say Karate for example, you’re taught to punch THROUGH your target. You pick a point PAST your target and you aim for that.
You don’t aim for your target, because that’s a much weaker strike, so by the time your fist is hitting the target, your punch is pretty much stopped.
What you’re doing when you focus on achieving the vibrations (or any other non-direct projection goal) is that you’re focusing so hard on experiencing these “sensations” that your aiming for the target (sensations) so when you finally hit that target, you’re stopping. Aim beyond the sensations. Aim beyond what you THINK you need to achieve.
It’s okay, and even good to have those symptoms/sensations… but they’re mostly just a signpost that reads “Keep doing what you’re doing, because you’re doing it right”. Just keep doing whatever it was that got you there. Continue focusing away from the physical. Don’t stop to read the signpost.
