iguanashaimz asked: Hello :) I hope you are having a wonderful day. When I meditate, I leave my eyes open and watch objects/nature around me. Sometimes when I do this I see the objects shaking or have light or colors. Today I was looking at my thumb and it became transparent and I saw the grass through it. When I look at the moon I see blue and orange around it. I suppose what I am asking is, are my eyes just playing tricks on me because I keep them open and focused so long or am I seeing auras/energy?
Different people will give you different answers to this. But the point of meditation isn’t to see auras or attain special powers. The point is to go beyond them to Peace.
These sorts of supernatural distractions are still tricks of the ego attempting to keep your mind from becoming still and clear.
When you practice meditation with eyes open or closed simply observe whatever happens without thinking further about it. The ego/mind may show you many things like visions or supernatural tricks. You must not become distracted. Remain unmoved.
Only when you get past reacting to all imaginations of the mind will you find peace. That is the recommended goal.
