Back story:

If you have read some of my posts, you can tell I am an asshole and not all there. I have been diagnosed clinically insane, I don't need remarks on this, so if you can, please refrain from making remarks.

 

Alright, I have been having crazy dreams and stuff, sleep paralysis, tons of anger , etc. and I went to the psychiatrist a week ago to find out what it was. They said I might my f*cked in the head, just not in that manner. I haven't really told anyone, because I think I can get over it. I have been trying tons of stuff. Now I am going to try meditation.

 

This is where I am at now. I have been reading up on mediation and trying to practice it. I am not 100% sure how to do it. I read if you meditate too long, you can become prone to psychotic behaviors. Last thing I need right now. I am trying to piece my life together. I noticed if I meditate, I become calmer. I just need some pointers, and don't need links to Google.

 

If you have any tips, like how to focus while meditating, what to focus on, what to listen to, just anything really. I need some help. Again, the first people I have told is an internet forum, so if you must make remarks, go ahead. I really don't care. I just need some serious help. Again, this is not just some random joke topic. I genuinely need help. I don't want to get any worse. If you want me to point out some other flaws in myself to help you get a laugh, f*ck off.

 

Just need tips on meditation.

While I do not want to ask for you to disclose all of your personal information, what kind of psychotic acts have you done? If it is nothing more than bad dreams, you probably just need some rest. Get more hours into your sleep and possibly take a nap here and there. Lay off the coffee or other caffeinated drinks and you should be fine.

 

I do not actively meditate but whenever I feel pressure from within (in the sense that I'm reacting to a situation more aggressively than I should) I try and take a second to breathe, and recall just why it is I'm angry. I ask myself two or three questions regarding why I'm feeling the way I am, and if I can answer them in a positive light, then well, my problem's solved. I'll go get a drink of water and relax.

 

I have to say, though, that the most fulfilling reaction to my aggressive "episodes" is working out. Pick up a weight or two and starting lifting. You'll tire yourself out and nothing bad comes from it. Your heart gets a healthy work out in the process, too.

 

Again, if you're suffering solely from bad dreams, the reason may just be that you're not getting enough sleep. Caffeinated drinks can harm you in that area.

 

I suggest you get some sleep and maybe try and find a hobby that brings you happiness. It's cheesy but hey, why not try it?

 

Oh and by the way, we're all f*cked up. You're not alone. Don't let anyone here make you feel alienated. Every single person on the planet has a story to tell.

I would rather not go into depth, but I it's not just the dreams. I don't drink much caffeine or anything. I am going to keep going to the psychiatrist, even if it is a money pit. I do life weights and stuff, and work out. I'm not going to go more in depth than I have, but I can assure you this isn't just something I threw out there.

Well, then, I agree with you seeing a psychiatrist but only in the short term. Any medication prescribed should be rejected until you can consult with one or two other specialists in the field. If you follow everything you're told by a psychiatrist you'll wind up in a 10-15 year long prescription drug addiction.

 

Other than that advice, I respect your choice not to disclose the details. While I'm not trying to bait you still to telling us more, I can't really help you other than what I've said already.

 

Are there people in your life who are causing you undue stress? You may need to rid yourself of these people even if they are family. Stressful situations are not good for you.

 

I'll be called a loonie, maybe (and I definitely won't care), but I believe in the law of attraction. You bring to yourself all that you feel and do. If you tell yourself you're psychotic, you're going to be psychotic. Maybe the first step is simply you telling yourself everything is going to be alright. It may just do wonders.

 

While I've just recently become interested in the law of attraction, and I'm in no way an expert in this area, it's helped me to get a hold of my life and the situation I am now is amazing. A couple years ago, I was looking for a way out. Now, I'm cherishing every moment of my life because it's all starting to go right.

You have just said everything I am thinking. I was trying to find a way to get these heavily distracting people out of my life. Also, I know I don't want to just get one person's opinion. The only part I don't agree with is the Law of Attraction part. I always thought I was fine, but I think that was where I went wrong. I really didn't have many feelings for sh*t. I didn't care. I thought I was doing great. Then all this hit my like a brick.

 

My life is different now, so I need to make some changes. Writing is calming me down, so is meditation. I'm just trying to get my priorities straight. Once I fix this, I can move on with my life. I hope I can fix it. I will eliminate my stressors starting tomorrow. Just need to chillax.

Well, the reason for why I brought up the law of attraction is because it coincides with the idea that there are those around you who stress you out. You manage to get away from these people and the attraction is broken. This could be the first step.

 

I feel that you're starting to realize what you need to do on your own. I wish you the best and if you can, let me know how things are going.

I always listen to this song when I get in a rut. It calms me down but also brings back memories of things past so I don't know. Maybe you could try it once, and see how you feel. I was almost on the verge of tears when I first heard this song... blush.gifEmotion-Daft Punk

I already knew what I am to do, eliminate stress. I just need some pointers on meditation, so I can calm down and focus more. Thank you for the help though. icon14.gif

I'm not an expert on meditation, but I have gone on a similar journey.

 

The key thing about meditation is to understand that it is not an escape. It is quite the opposite. It is the practising contentment in a way. When you sit crossed legged, consentrating on your breathing. You are becoming more comfortable with just being. You will come across boredom, distracting thoughts, or sometimes pain. Like an itch, or something that popped into your mind.

When we meditate we face these delemas and learn from them. Learn to be content, sitting through so many distractions. We also learn much about ourselfs, while acknologing and releasing our many thoughts.

Somtimes meditation can be used for relaxation. And instead of focusing on your breathing. You could perhaps lay down and focus on your body. You can start with you're head, or ears, your toes whatever. You can go to each or any body part, and maybe say (in your mind) somthing like this: "This is my ear, I love my ear, my ear is becoming very relaxed".

 

There is a lot to know about meditation. I don't really meditate enough myself. If you wan't to know more, I would suggest talking to a Yogi. Or reading some eastern philosophy. You don't have to be Bhuddist or anything. tounge2.gif

I can tell you these things will definitely help.

  • Air (open the windows, breath it in)
  • Water (drink it)
  • Sunshine (go out and enjoy the sun, it won't kill you)
  • Walking (one of the easiest ways to relieve stress)
  • Wholefoods (you know, fruits, vegetables, stuff like that)
  • Healthy relationships (enjoy time with friends or family, if a relationship requires too much work then realise it's not working, move on)
  • Passion (everyone in life needs passion, something to aspire to, to live for)

Wow, I thought I was the only one feeling the itching, and boredom. Also, not Bhuddist, more into Sufism.

Prone to panic attacks, I first began meditating using guided 'hypnotherapy' mp3s. Once I had done it a few times, I was able to do it without the audio cues, and then soon after, I could calm myself down fairly quickly, to the point where I haven't felt like I really need to do it as often.

 

I did find that hot baths, or a sauna, work wonders to relax your body and help you clear your mind.

Although this may sound pussy or something, but Yoga will help. Do it in your own house. Breathing (no smartass remarks, please) is very good for you.

I kinda had a problem when I was younger. It was the stereotypical child of divorced parents bullsh*t. I was at the perfect age to know what was going on and let it destroy my life because I didn't really know what was going on. Until I was about 17 or 18 and I realized I couldn't control what other people do or how they acted...

 

 

So here I am. Lesson learned: the only person you can control is yourself and you need to be able to understand if other people are the stressers in your life you need to get from them or open up to them about the way they act.

 

 

As for meditation: video games. It may sound silly, but racing games always put me in a place of peace. Its like I could race lose myself in thought, zone out, think everything over and have some sort of inner conversation, and still manage to race amazingly without realizing it. Too bad I can't do that while I drive to work everyday...

 

 

EDIT: why the hell do I always forget the 't or n't...pisses me off.
