    I have done 2 sessions with LifeFlow10 and on each one, with the best will in the world, I seem to loose consciousness at some point. When I realise this has happened I have to almost pull myself back into a conscious state in order to repeat my mantra again with as full a focus as possible. But then eventually the inevitable happens and I zone out again. This keeps happening in my sessions.

    To me the CDs make it feel as though it is harder to meditate and as a result I am having to work a lot harder. Is this the whole idea behind it? I would liken it to a weightlifter using weights to build their muscles. Without the CDs I can stay conscious for over an hour in a meditative state. With, it feels like more of a challenge.

    Hi Rob, many fall asleep (I used to do) in the early days. I'm sure this will change shortly for you. I think what helped me was simply going with the flow and accepting whatever happened. I noticed yet didn't analyse all the different sensations and vibrations I experienced in various parts of my body - it was just a nice rest in the middle of the day.

    The things I noticed the most were how I became so much calmer in situations throughout the day and how simply I made quick decisions. Just enjoy whatever happens and if your mind is clear and your mantra has disapeared, that's good. I found the focus on the mantra helped me to not focus on my busy thoughts initially. I hope that makes some sense for you.

    How long have you meditated for and do you notice any benefits in your daily life? I wish you much peace and inner joy :) :) :)

    Hello Pollyanna,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I will do some more sessions and post back about how things are going.

    I have been meditating off and on (more off than on) for about 5 years.
    I seem to start and then I get bored and give up and this seems to be a vicious circle that I'm in. I move from system to system (this is yet another one) in the hope that I will find something that does not make me lose interest. This is the first time I am trying this sort of technology to help you meditate. I totally realise the benefits of meditation, but it's just sticking to it to receive any sort of benefit.

    Rob
