What are the general signs of a break through in meditation? I ask this because I've been doing it off and on for several years now and only recently have I started back up again. I use a collection of guided meditation and some binaural beats and have recently became a bit..well frustrated I guess. I don't know if I have certain expectations or not.
During a meditation a couple of months ago I was deep into it, feeling relax and just drifting is the word that I'm looking for here. When all of a sudden, through the headphones and the loud volume, I hear a 'STOP' loud and clear. Note that I was by myself and the room was completely dark.
I'm rambling again. Point close, how would I know if I had a break through? Would the signs be more on the emotional side?
