    How's it going!

    As somewhat of a musician, I've always tried finding fresh perspectives on life. I've seen my dad meditate. He's an old European Christian with a bookshelf full of books on Buddhist meditation. I recall when I was very young, he tried to teach me to concentrate on my breathing and relax. I've done it to my own benefit a few times, but I never paid much attention to it...

    The other day I came across the Ganzfeld effect. As a curious guy, (and a fan of progressive rock,) naturally, legal and safe hallucination seemed like a pretty worthy venture. I tried a couple of nights in a row to no avail.

    However, the last time, no longer as afraid, I let myself sink into my bed and truly loose all sense of not only my eyes and ears, but the bed under me and the laptop resting on my waist. I didn't actually break the barrier still, but I came extremely close many, many times during the 30 minutes I tried.

    When I woke up, I felt at peace. I felt like my whole body was properly surging with energy.

    So now, determined to enter that world of visual free-fall, and internal bliss, I've decided to come here and learn to effortlessly focus and come to be at peace. I want to learn to turn off all filters and channel my inherent creativity.

    Lookin' forward to talking with you people! :D

    Hi and welcome to the Project Meditation community,

    Not heard of it before, but just gone and looked it up. Although I've not actively practiced that, I've experienced it on a few occassions for short periods. Sounds interesting though, so I'll have to read up a little more on it.

    :)

    Hugs

    Giles
