Hi, My name is Shahrzad and I have a question about meditation and inner voices. I discovered meditation a few months ago and during this time, I have been amazed by its power. As I am struggling with a relationship issue in my life, I find meditating very useful in guiding me through his struggle and helping me make the right decisions. Here is what I do: after I go through first few steps of meditation, I present my inner power with a question and soon enough, I receive my answer. These answers usually come in the form of a voice, a dream or daily event: A music on the radio, a conversation , etc. And when these answers come, I somehow know that they were meant for me. Of course, not always I like those answers, but know that they will make my life better. However, a few nights ago something odd happened. I presented my inner power with a question and the answer I received was totally in odd with what I was told before. I didn’t like the answer at all. As I mention before, there has been occasions that I hadn’t liked the answers I received, but somehow were at peace with them and know that they were for the better. But this time, I had no peace with this one. Furthermore, the voice didn’t feel like previous ones. I somehow didn’t feel right as it was some sort of an evil talking to me. I didn’t feel at ease with it at all and felt extremely uncomfortable coming out of my meditation mood. It felt as if my inner privacy was being invaded by some external force. As I am relatively new to the whole notion of meditation, I was wondering if anyone of you who are more experienced in this amazing process have had similar experiences and can shed some light onto my experience.
Thanks a lot,
