Weird meditation experience

Postby Bleekman117 » 11 Sep 2012 03:32

So I just got finished with a meditation session and right at the end I was in a deep meditative state and all of the sudden my arms unconsciously jumped from my side to my chest(I was laying down) and my eyes shot open. No idea why this happened and I definitely didn't do this of my own free will.
Just curious if anything like this has happened to anybody else?

I've never had that happen before; is there any more information you can give? Just going from body language, the arms-to-chest movement suggests you're feeling vulnerable and trying to protect yourself, but this could be wrong since I didn't see it happen--the kind of motion might suggest something different if I saw it. I wouldn't worry about it; it's probably just a knee-jerk or in this case arm-jerk (hee hee) reaction to a sensation. Next time you're meditating, if it happens again, pay closer attention and see what the cause is. But it probably won't happen again; I think weird things like that just happen from time to time.

Yea, I'm not really worried about what it meant or why it happened, it just never happened to me before so i decided I'd share it and see if anyone else has had similar experiences :)

I think you just had an extreme experience of a hypnic jerk.
