How do I know if Iím meditating?

No, you donít have to be having out of body experiences, meeting angels, seeing coloured lights, or even hearing voices to know that you are meditating. All of these can arise but they are phenomena that like everything else will rise, and fall, and pass away. The secret is not to get trapped into any one thing as the mind will crave for a repeat state of that. When the sought after state doesnít happen in a meditation session there can be feelings of disappointment, disillusionment and the desire to stop meditating.

If you find your mind becoming quieter than usual and your breathing is changing and becoming softer and lighter then you can trust that you are meditating.
