Body Tingling while meditating

Hiya,

When meditating i sometimes feel my whole body tingling and tightness in my chest to the point where it gets distracting and i stop meditating. Correct me if im wrong but the tingling is energy? I try to ignore/ride it out but when the tightness in chest comes i get very anxious where it almost feels like im having a panic attack and stop everything.

Any advice/tips on how to do deal with it would be greatly appreciated.
Love and Blessings

Yes, in meditation it is common to become aware of the subtle aspects of the body, which are very often felt as tingling. Tightness in chest is OK, and that will pass in its own good time as part of the purification process. When you say you get 'distracted' that is when you begin to react - which becomes 'anxiety' as you put it. I suggest that you have far more capacity to sit with it than you think. It might be more disconcerting for you because you are alone with it and have no support, but I suggest you could be a lot more determined than you have been to date, and as best you can, you can be aware that the chest sensation is there without becoming distressed by it - as well as you are able - and I think you'll be surprised at how able you really are.

Hi

I agree with Gem you can sit with it longer so give that a try. To me it's a good sign and to me you are going deeper in your meditation and your body is reacting to it as it's not use to it.

There is nothing to fear and it just simply means that you are progressing. Thew sensation you are having will go away as you get use to it.

Your doing good keep up the good work.

I feel the tingling and tightness too. It used to be really hard to deal with but I started focusing more on my breathing and even counting my breaths and I would start to feel less like I was having a panic attack.
