My wife and I just went through an IVF embryo transfer for our IVF procedure last week. During this experience we we're given a mediation cd to use morning and night that focuses on fertility. I've been doing it with my wife and it seems to really calm and focus us both even though I don't have ovaries or a uterus.
Having said this, I find that I deeply and soothingly relax to the point of not moving for hours after the 20 minute session is over. I deeply meditate and disappear in my mind and then sleep until morning.
Tonight I had something happen that scared me. After 30 minutes beyond the 20 minute mediation I laid there in a waking dream dealing with a Turkish street palm reader and I decided to wake up fully and grab my wife's computer to google "made in turkey" to see what I would find. When I began to open my eyes I felt my legs stretch longer like rubber, then my feet and legs, up to my waist, felt like they were floating. I was awake looking at my projected wall clock and for about 30 seconds I could not speak or call out to my wife. I could move my eyes around but I had zero use of my muscles or voice. I was trying to wake up my wife because I found myself trapped and unable to speak. I eventually got some meager groans out that got her attention and she shook me out of it.
I felt like I began to float into the air, while doing so I panicked and tried to get out of it for 30 seconds or more before I could make even the weakest sound. What was going on with me? I know I was meditative, but was this a spirit leaving the body type of thing and I was afraid to with it? Sure would like to know.
