Meditation: Helpful or Harmful?

  1. From what I heard, mediation can put you in a state of depersonalization and can make your brain go in an altered state. Tons of problems can arise for schizophrenics in that regard. I heard of some people saying it’s fine for schizophrenics and some saying it’s a bad idea. Try out different methods and see what works for you.

  2. I personally can't meditate for this reason, though i spend a lot of time daydreaming. Giving myself a direction to go and focusing in on it gives me the relaxed and centered feel without driving me literally bugnuts.

  3. I enjoy meditation. Centers me and helps keep my demons at bay. It's truly something when you have total self control and can walk away from all the dumb shit without even a sigh.

  4. Yeah, meditation and mindfulness can cause problems for some people with schizophrenia, so I don't think you are doing it wrong. There may be other relaxation techniques you could try.

  5. I was just pondering doing some meditation and was meditating on it. For me I can create a “emanation body and mind” fairly easy. And what I mean is I can, with personal stories, mantras, and personal prayers become the meditation deity. Like Tara I’ve reading her stories, chanting her mantra… I feel her, I am her, I am me being her. Lol and the “ego” doesn’t like that shit nor knows how to use it in everyday. I thought I could become the meditation deity and just kill off this ego but that didn’t work just left me more confused and useless. It’s like walking a tight rope for me. Because if I fall my ego will now have tools that are powerful to use against me. Dark meditations and then those eat you away. And yea that’s my rant lol

  6. I’ve found that it helps but it takes time to help. At first it makes the thoughts more prominent but then it helped them slow down
