    Hi Guys

    This is my first post, so be gentle with me;)
    I started the life flow program about 3 weeks ago. Lovin it.
    However, yesterday and today during my 40 min session my body has started to shake/tremor physically, especially my legs. It's not my imagination as I've opened my eyes to look. Is this a side effect. Also I feel very spaced out.

    Looking forward to you're comments Oh wise ones:D

    Hi Ailsa,
    Shaking and involuntary twitching are common whilst meditating.
    When I first learnt transcendental meditation in 1977 we we told that this was simply the manifestation of stress release from the body. If you research other threads on this site you will find mention of kriya's and suchlike causing the shaking.
    You will probably find that it comes and goes with your practice, it certainly does with me. It should not be an unpleasant sensation, quite the opposite in fact.
    As regards the spaced out feeling following your practice. Be sure to sit quietly for at least two minutes when you have stopped meditating. You can even lie down if you wish. This will prepare you for returning to your everyday world. You may also wish to cut down the time spent in a single session of meditation. Most people start off with 20 minute sessions.
    Good luck and best wishes,
    Keith

    Thanks Keith for confirming that for me, I kind of suspected that was the case.
    I have been practicing meditation on and off for years including training in TM but just never seemed to get it, all I experienced was boredom. Life flow is a totally different experience. I'm so thankful I found it.

    Kindest thoughts xx
