Hi again. I see a few familiar faces. :) I'm hoping this is the right place to learn a little more about meditation. I'm just starting out.

I've been using a guided meditation cd that I like a lot. First you relax, and visualize light filling you and healing you. It's a lot like self-hypnosis - you go "deeper and deeper", then he counts back from 10, then you go down a staircase. And you're in a beautiful garden, where you are perfectly at peace, and can send beams of light to those you love, and you draw images of yourself at all ages into the light, so you accept and love yourself. Then he says you might see colors around you (haven't seen that yet) or that you might have a wise being in your presence that you can ask questions of.

It's a little frustrating, because the first couple of times I did it, it knocked me out. I was totally, deeply, into it, and didn't remember what he said, but remembered having a beautiful being talk to me (but don't remember hearing her) who looked like a younger, more beautiful, happier me. And once I was able to remember asking questions, although I didn't see anyone, and had answers come to me immediately. But I haven't been so deep since.

But still, when I've done it the 4-5 times since then, I get sooooo relaxed, and feel like I'm vibrating pleasantly all over. Do you all feel a tingly relaxation when you meditate, that lingers for a little while after? I've been listening to it once a day, although I skipped on the weekend, b/c I don't have a quiet house on the weekends. Any suggestions or input about a guided meditation cd, or meditating in general?
