I realized yesterday that in my practice, I haven't been relaxing. Yes, I've heard the advice in the course that you should relax as much as possible, and I even thought I was taking that advice, but it turns out I wasn't. When I realized this, I decided to just look. No breathing or de-focusing, just relaxing. I found that if I just looked at a specific point, usually the corner of a doorframe or a thermostat box, the edges of things would start "glowing." I made sure that my eyes were as relaxed as possible at all times, even in focusing on a certain point.
After a few minutes of doing this, I started seeing circular "waves" or thick circles expanding outward. I've seen this before, probably about 8 years ago during a previous attempt to see auras and energy. My hypothesis is that it's part of my own aura, but it could be something else entirely. Has anyone else seen this before, and if so, can you tell me what it is?
