Found this while doing some research on meditation yesterday. If you participated in the 21 day challenge or not, you will appreciate these questions and answers by Dr. Chopra.
What’s the significance of sensations during meditation?
During each 21-Day Meditation Challenge, we receive questions from participants who are curious about the sensations they experience during meditation, including everything from tingling feelings in the body and sleepiness to the desire to cry or laugh out loud. Although there are a variety of sensations that you can experience during meditation, in reality, only four things can happen during meditation:
You have awareness of your mantra or the focus of your meditation.
You experience thoughts or sensations.
You fall asleep.
You enter the stillness between thoughts, commonly referred to as “the gap.”
