Very new to meditation .. please help!

I am very new to meditation, honestly I donít know if I am even doing this right and would like some guidance on meditation. I am 4 days into this and the first day I experienced a loud ringing noise almost . This morning while meditating I decided for whatever reason to open my eyes and all around me looked like thousands of white sparkles thatís the best way to describe this . There were thousands of them and they were beautiful and they didnít go away . Is this normal ? Or am I doing this thing all wrong ?

Flow with it. There are many things which can be seen and heard in meditation. Some people experience such phenomena, others don't. It is not wrong. Just be present with whatever is happening and see where it leads you.

Peace.

There is no such thing as "normal" when it comes to meditation; there are common experiences that people have in meditation, but in the long run each person's meditation experience will be as unique as they are. In meditation, you are bringing to the surface what you have inside of you, and no doubt, you will have experiences that will appear as very strange to your ordinary everyday mind. Experiences that can not be readily explained. I would suggest that you get a teacher who you can talk with face-to-face, or get into a group of people who are practicing meditation. The experience of meditating with a group is fantastic and much different then meditating alone, plus a group can be very supportive. You need this, in my opinion, when you are first beginning a meditation practice. Understand that you are going to be dealing with your own mind once you begin a meditation practice, and just getting help online is sometimes inadequate.

Peace and Good Journey

The experience will only be yours. Hardly any similarities with others except the sound vibes of a deities region are same as heard by diff people.

Sounds good. You're open to what happens, and just keep going with that.

Hi

To me hearing ringing sounds is normal and the white sparkles could be from opening your eyes as your eyes get use to from darkness to light. What is not that normal is people experiencing the tones so early on just learning meditation so you must be doing something right so you may have a skill for this!!! Meditation is a practice not something that you do right or wrong. It's like going to the gym the only way your not getting it right is from not doing/practicing it.

Good luck.
