Warnings for Meditation
  • There are reports of hypoglycemia resulting from meditation. This may be rectified by eating lightly prior to practice (overeating is strongly discouraged).


  • Hypo tension (low blood pressure) may result from meditation. Therefore, it is not prudent to stand up suddenly after a long sitting, as one may faint. Although this has been noted rarely, it is feasible. 
  • You may feel strong emotions during this meditation, this is natural as you come in contact with your true self, allow these emotions to arise and fall away naturally, accept them and do not judge them.


  • If you feel very disturbed by any emotions, please contact a professional counselor, they will help you more fully understand yourself.
  • Do not expect immediate results. The purpose of meditation is not to turn you into a Zen master overnight. Meditation works best when it is done for its own sake, without becoming attached to results.
  • If you find your mind is wandering, try not to scold or beat up on yourself about it. Wandering restlessly is the normal state of the conditioned mind. This is the first lesson many people learn in meditation and it is a valuable one. Simply, gently, invite your attention back to your breath, remembering that you have just had a small but precious "awakening." Becoming aware of your wandering mind is a success, not a failure.
  • Some people find it is difficult to meditate immediately before bedtime. If you are very sleepy, you may find yourself nodding off. Conversely, meditating may energize your mind, making it more difficult to fall asleep.
  • As you meet other people who meditate, you may encounter a few who will boast about their endurance for long meditation sessions, even hours and hours at a sitting. Do not be tempted to change your practice to "keep up." Meditation is not competitive. It is a way of life.
  • If your posture is good, you will almost certainly feel a stretch on the back of your neck, and possibly in your shoulders. Just relax. If the stretch is so pronounced that it is painful, work on stretching and relaxing that area when you are not meditating.
