Hi Everyone

I'm very new to deep meditation, I've only been doing it for a week. But from day four I started getting a headache which often remains after the meditation for the rest of the day.

I don't think I'm sensitive to meditation as I have been doing the Ishayas Ascension meditation previously for a year and a half with very little change to my external life, that's why I changed to deep meditation.

I also don't feel as if I'm forcing the mantra (concentrating on it too much), although the 'I am' doesn't refine for me during my session but I just put this down to being clunky as a beginner.

I started doing a breath meditation today instead of the mantra but it's not as effortless as the mantra meditation for me and i don't get the same warm gentle feeling afterwards.

So if there is anyone who can offer some advice to enable me go back to the mantra meditation I would be extremely grateful.

Many thanks

Thanks kumar, that was great advice. I reduced the time to 10 mins and have been able to do DM without any headaches which is brilliant.

Welcome Dhaka this is called self pacing, dialing back practice until we feel stable and then bring it back up to where you left off. If your routine is stable for months after, look to adding another practice. Glad to hear you are better

Thanks for the welcome Dogboy, I love this forum everyone is so supportive. I'll stick to the 10 mins twice a day for a few weeks and then try increasing the time, then eventually adding another practice when the DM is stable. Also, is it normal for beginners to find that the mantra doesn't refine at all during their sitting?

Hello Dhanya,

as long as you follow the simple procedure of deep meditation it is all good. There will be periods with and without refinement of the mantra.
