Whenever i close my eyes, I will start thinking about my current life and future. No way that God come in my mind as i am not worshipping God for years. (But i never talked bad anywhere that god doesn't exists). Few of my dear ones comes in my mind when I close my eyes. other than that, i always plan, plan & plan about my life whenever i close my eyes. Have a nice time, Ganesh! Happy Postings!

I just started tryin to learn the art of meditation. When i close my eyes I actually either dont see anything or i see a vision of my Master. Its more of a connection with your inner spirit and a sense of peace and calm, at least that is how it is for me. I really thought it was silly when i first started but after about 3 weeks of it now i find it a stress reducer, helps me to stay organized and focused on whats important and a clear mind to deal with different situations. Since im new to it too i'll be interested in reading the other responses here too. Have a great day :)

Meditation is not hell but will make you feel heavenly once you have mastered it. Meditation has nothing to do with seeing god but is basically mastering and getting control of your wavering mind. It is a mental exercise which not only gives you mental serenity but also gives a good effect on your physical health. It is not at all an easy process and one needs dedication, concentration and control over one's mind. Whenever i close my mind for meditation I do get many visions but finally when my mind is concentrated i can see a blank white screen like the tv screen. No more thoughts, and visions and as the concentration gets deeper you can master your meditation better. You feel fresh mentally and physically after a good meditation. Log on to your youtube and they give you different ways of meditate easily.

Hi Ganesh, this is interesting. Frankly, I did try that closing eyes stuff. Closing eyes without knowing he exact procedure doesnt really help u meditate. At the most u might feel sleepy after a few minutes. The exact process is close ur eyes, take a very deep breath. Imagine each cell of ur body has some air sac that needs to be filled up and let it reach the most distant ones of these. Having ballooned like this, release it slowly as if u r farting in some board meeting. Sorry about the crude analogy, but it was to give u an idea how slowly and inconspicuously u want to release the air back into the atmosphere. Keep repeating the process about 60 times, u will feel a different kind of freshness - the kind u lost touch with may be. And a feeling of positiveness. I dont know from where it comes. U can at that point of time decide to focus attention on any physical object as well. But the breathing process is a must. Certain postures help because it helps in imagining the flow of the air to those distant parts. Do let me know if this helped. Happy mylotting.

I usually meditate at night. When I close my eyes for meditation I can see nothing but a black space where there is no ending and I see to it that nothing can disturb me while doing so. I can imagine a dark path for me where I really do not know what the end of the path is. I really love meditating and this can give me a clear view of life. Meditation help me relax and think more clearer. I will be able to achieve a piece of mind when meditating. Sometimes, while I am meditating I would like to see myself in the beach full of fresh air, alone, and peaceful. I would like to have the inner me rest and take a break for a while. Meditating is a very important tool. I respect your comment and please do respect my opinion as I do respect yours. It is not a waste of time since it can really help you escape from reality and achieve a self actualize being.

Wow you really don't know what you're talking about when you say that meditation is a waste of time and energy. By practicing the art of meditation you can reach worlds that don't have any such thing as time. Through meditation you can enter planes that are made of pure energy. Yes you can see God if you are a master or a very dedicated trainee. Through the desire to evolve and transcend higher the further you can go with meditation. You just really have to have initiation to meditating and spiritually for you to start learning truth. Of course everybody has different visions and different things that they are seeing whilst in these different states of consciousness. I generally see neon or luminescent colors or balls of energy like this. Everything is very vibrant and seems like it is a higher power. I would practice more or do more research before making claims at religion's practices before you really know what you're talking about. Meditation is much more powerful than you think.

Hi Ganesh, There are many sites here that explain meditation better than I can do it here. It requires patience and you begin relaxing the muscles of your body. You could just goggle "how to Meditate" and choose a site that suits you or you could try the following. www.meditationescape.com/how-to-meditate-for-beginners.h. Learning to meditate is an ongoing process but can be very rewarding. Blessings.

I see colors, and I work toward seeing the Om sign. I concentrate on that and feel it sliding into my body, as long as I can do this I feel I have achieved a meditative state and try to stay that way as long as I can.

I do not meditate as people think of it but when I turn out the lights at night I close my eyes and let my mind travel. If I'm in a receptive mood and focus on the love of God, sometimes I can feel His arm around me or His love surrounding me. It's something wonderful and precious to me. I always sleep well on those nights.

I see macaroni when my eyes are closed! Yep, little elbow shaped macaronies. I don't see God with my eyes closed......I see Him EVERYWHERE when my eyes are wide open though. I see Him in the beauty of nature, in the little squirrels that scamper through my yard, in my husband's and grandchildren's faces, and in.......well, you get the idea by now probably.
