Inner Body Experience

From skeptic to believer

In Feb. of this year I started going through a very difficult breakup from my girlfriend. It was completely accidental that I started learning about the EGO self which help me understand some things and eased the breakup situation.

I pursued more information and learned about the power of being present, this added more comfort to my situation.
Practicing being in the present was really helping cope and I had a good understanding through various books.

To make a long story short, I am now reading Eckhart Tolle’s, The Power of Now and got to the section about feeling the inner body, he basically said stop here and try this now.

I did focus awareness into my inner body and wow, I defiantly felt an experience that I will never forget, and I’ll try to describe it, so here I go.

As I was focusing my awareness on my inner body and I was so calm and present that for a split second went into a sleep state, it was no more that happen I awoke back into my awareness and had this immediate sensation of my entire inner body feeling like it was pushing against me everywhere, tingling, moving, I guess vibrating, it was everywhere inside me and it was very strong, I would say its kind of an electrical shock that feels fantastic and does not hurt. It was a fantastic feeling, something I have never felt before, I wasn’t scared, but I felt so much joy emulating inside me, that I started to weep.

Well that’s my experience and I have done this again since but not with the same intensity as the first time. Each time I do it, I feel joy.

Before Feb of this year I was not a spiritual person and was a skeptic by far.

Anyone reading this feel free to comment

A skeptical mind is the best mind to begin experimentation with. Don't loose it. Be a scientist and take the data without becoming religious!

Experimentation never ends and you don't really know what you are talking about if you don't experiment. That's what the Buddha did - he's a great role model...he tried each method himself and from that he could speak with confidence.

I agree

Thanks Gilana,

Yes I agree, thank you for your advise, I'm not religious, I'm just learning new aspects of my life that I never knew existed. Like how an unclutter mind makes me feel at ease and how to feel emotions and witness them instead of building them up into a whirlwind and how to witness my thoughts and even question the truthfulness of them.

Up until the point I had the inner body experience I was using these methods just to help my psych get over my breakup. The inner body experience was very intense and it made an impact on me. I guess I meant from skeptic to believer is that I never before though I could feel something like that. It was defiantly something though, whether is called my spirit, soul, or my body energy. I really don't care what label is associated with it, it felt good.

Gilana Is Correct!

Gilana said almost everything to be said about your experiences so I will only add:
Don't expect the sensation to continue to be so outstanding but to fade out over time. When using the first chapter of John from the Bible we find "1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
& 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

That means "one is spiritual once they come into understanding of the why and how of all existence, including those things considered good and those considered evil so the person who has it becomes the word made flesh." From that backdrop, as you enter your inner self seek guidance into comprehending existence is all I want to add.
