I see pulsating purple light/energy when I meditate….whats up with that?

Dale (@dookieinapot) 10 years, 6 months ago

Has any one had a similar experience? I have no idea what this means or the implications of it. What do I do with it?
In more detail: The energy static patterns begin a few minutes after I begin the usual meditation technique (relaxing the body, focusing on my breathing). After about 5 minutes in, purple energy begins to emanate around me, it concentrates directly in front of me (I’m weird and meditate with my eyes open and stare unblinking into the far far distance, through the wall) It pulsates and cycles from a circle about 2 fists big and cycles to a dark blue color and becomes smaller in size as it changes color. This is present the whole time I’m in the meditation zone. WHAT DOES IT MEAN? I’ve never read of this experience. Please somebody tell me I’m not alone. (sidenote: I’m always sober for this)

Don’t do anything with it just let it happen.

That’s right

Nick (195) (@nickc2007) 10 years, 6 months ago ago

Well I can tell you you’re certainly not alone! Funnily enough, I don’t get it anymore (and kinda miss it truth be told), but yeah, I’ve definitely seen what you’re describing.

I have periods when it stops but it always comes back to surprise me with new intensity or something new, like new colours or more structure to it. Not alluding anything about you, but I have it come back when I live a healthy lifestyle or also when circumstances in my life change, like new job with more new people around. Bless

It might be kundalini energy? I’m not sure but I read a book called Eat Pray Love and in it the author experienced pulsating energy when she meditated. She called it kundalini energy.

You’re definitely not alone! I always experience the exact same thing you do in deep meditation. I also saw an eye once.. very odd but calming. I was curious so I looked it up and read about a bunch of people with similar experiences. They say it represents the crown chakra which is purple. Seeing this means your third eye is opening.

I’ve seen an eye as well…totally framed memoir the first time I saw it. Have only seen it a few times.

dymethyo (1) (@dymethyo) 5 years, 9 months ago ago

I also saw an eye multiple times. Usually as I was trying to fall asleep or in meditation or just chilling at home in the evening. I also saw other symbol-like things or some kind of structures that seemed to represent something but they were either vague or I couldn’t associate them with anything I know. Wonder what kind of language is that and who created it…

It could represent the violet flame in your heart chakra too:)
embrace it!

Yes I starting meditating again about 5 months ago, and almost immediately starting seeing purple energy, it actually rotates between purple and gold energy, I see it all the time now even when I’m not meditating… I also see energy all around me in the air all the time now, no matter what I’m doing its amazing! Just keep meditating, more intense experiences keep happening the more I meditate… Try meditation for longer periods, I start to feel energy(warmth) pulsating through my body with long meditations, it’s an indescribably peaceful feeling : )

email me if you want, would love to talk with someone who’s going through the same as me, I don’t know one single person that sees energy, gets kinda lonely not being able to share these experiences ; )

Hi all, I’ve just joined this site as I came across this post in google. I search ‘I see purple when I meditate, as this is what I see and have done for the last year or so. Kinda thought that maybe it was just me but it’s good to see there are a few of you that do too.

I started meditating about 3 years ago and have had some very, very strange experiences and some vivid images. There was one so strong and meaningful I created a Facebook group off the back of it in search more Like Minded People. And it worked. I just 2 years over 400 people have found the group, it’s a closed group so you have to know what you’re looking for to find it.

It’s great as we can now help each other grow.

In the last month I’ve found a few other websites like this that are too very good and full of people that are wired the same way as me. You see the trouble is society has deemed us to be strange, a but weird or even bonkers! We know we’re not but it’s hard to grow when you’ve got to hide just who you are and what you want to become when you keep getting knocked back, even by close friends and family.

It’s good to find you guys here! Let’s wake up this world together! :0)

Thanks Martijin. Will do. I’ll make a post in the hour :0)

I have been experiencing a kind….buzz…

And after a while, when I open my eyes, I can see the dark. Not that I can see IN the dark, but I can see a sort of hue and thickness of the darkness itself. And then (in total darkness) when I raise my hands, an almost invisible fire is wafting from my fingers etc.

Throughout my meditation, usually lasting around 30 mins, my hands become extremely warm – i feel tired and energised, it’s an overall great and odd experience.

I am so glad to read such positive replys on this subject. 

I just, just started to get minute glimpses of ” the eye” when day dreaming & knew I should strart meditating again as I haven’t had the best luck quieting the mind in the past. So, I tried connecting with the eye & by my amazement. I can now turn my thinking off like a light switch & I now ses the purple/indigo color. I meditate usually wuth my eyes open & staring at a wall.. which I think is somewhat strange, but i dont really care.. This feels like a gift & This is now the highlight of my day. 

I would love to talk to any/everone in the world that expirences this.. Plz feel free to message me anytime :)

SoulPerfection (25) (@soulperfection) 6 years, 11 months ago ago

Open eye meditation is an advanced technique used to activate the 3rd eye, which is the color of purple. You are just focusing in this area which means more thought-energey-light is being directed into this area causing the chakra to grow. Continual practice of this will begin to reshape your Pineal and Pituitary Glands (basically your antenna for energy and psychic abilitis) to their original size and function, they have been in dormant mode since humanity forgot who they are.

Jen (0) (@Jeni) 6 years, 11 months ago ago

Greetings to you. . . I have experienced violet energy around me for as long as I care to remember. I thought it was ‘normal’ and it happened to everyone, but over the years I now realise it is an energy representing healing. . .

I experience this when relaxed , eyes closed just before sleep, while having massage, reiki or any other healing always with my eyes closed. I see a violet light moving and playing. . . Changing shape and vibrancy on the back of my eyelids. Up until recently I have not pursued it. . .

However I have been meditating and exploring altered states of awareness to help induce an out of body experience. I have succeeded in an OBE just twice and am practising often. My visuals are now becoming more intense which fills me with emence joy. I am now able to see this colour with my eyes open and can play with this energy in a dimly light space. . . I can feel the energy coming out of the palms of my hands with little meditation.

If I do sit to meditate for ten minutes, eyes shut. . . Then at the end bring my hands up to my eyes , once I open my eyes I see sacred geometry patterns and a kalidescope of colour. What a wonderful multiverse we live in. . . I would love to share experiences and learn new practices if anyone is willing please contact me.

Blessings, happiness and joy x

I’m a young widow…My fiance suffered and died in 30 days after his Doctor gave him a FREE 30 day sample of ABILIFY for STRESS. After Frank died no one could comfort me but GOD and when I called on GOD he answered.  When GOD couldn’t make it he would send down my little guardian angel to protect me. I  captured the little angel on camera by mistake while praying for the poor children and the people who were injured and died at the Indiana State Fair. When I took the photo it was of a fenced in park that was locked. I took the photo and said a prayer and asked GOD to help the poor children of Gary Indiana and the people who were injured and died…

This little guardian angel saved my life THREE times and each time I hearda VOICE warning me to take a different path…

I was once almost kidnapped at the age of 43 when my mother’s truck broke down near the interstate highway. I  had my therapy dog with me and he was just 13 weeks old. This man pulls up said pop your hood and then said get in the car. I told him that I had my puppy Patch with me and he said leave him. I told him that I couldn’tjust leave my dog and he DEMANDED that I get in the car with him. When I told him that I would walk to the gas station,  he got really anger and told me to get in the car he would drive me, but not the dog. I  turned around and VDOT worker was standing there listening to the conversation and when he saw the VDOT worker he got very angry,  slammed my hood and told the VDOT worker I was his problem now. The VDOT worker told me that he was listening to the entire conversation and he said that if I went with him, I may have never been seen again.  The VDOT worker told me that there is a  man on Rt 66 kidnapping women.  The VDOT worker told me that he NEVER came this way but something was pulling him in this direction. I told him that I was a native and a young widow,  and when the car broke down next to the museum built for my ancestors, I called on them, GOD, Frank and the GREAT GOOD SPIRIT for help.

Come to find out the VDOT worker was Ottawa Indian and a medicine man.I am black, Dutch,  Blackfoot and Powhatan and he said that I am lost spiritual and that I had to get back to my Native American roots.

He gave me a smug stick and told me that there are evil people who want to do me harm. I told him that I was a young widow and the lawyers and his family tried to overturn his will and give me 100% on NOTHING. He show me how to pray with the smug stick and bless myselfto keep the evil people and people who want to do me harm away. He got water for the truck and told me to let it cool. My girlfriend picked me up and the next I went down picked up the truck and it’s been working fine ever since.

The second the I heard the VOICE  is when I was planting flowers outside my historic office building before I rented it out. I picked up the flowers and started to park around the back  when a VOICE  said NO PARK IN THE FRONT. I said, it’s a nice day, it will take 5 minutes to plant these flowers.  Besides I don’t want anyone to hit Franks truck. The VOICE said that FRANK WANTS YOU TO PARK IN THE FRONT!  When I heardthat I turned around and parked in the front of the office building.  I  took out the  flowers set them on the ground when I heard a  BIG BANG! I  turned around and this car was speeding,  lost control and almost hit me, but she hit Franks truck instead moving it a BLOCK AWAY! 

The THIRD time the VOICE saved my life I was getting ready for a big storm. I was prepared so I  took my puppy Patch to the mall to buy some shorts for my daughter. When I got home it was a clear bueatiful day, so I decided to walk patch before the storm and the VOICE said that there is no time.  I  said I’ll just walk him around the neighborhood and the VOICE said that it’s no time get in the  house.  I put Patch on the ground and looked up in the sky and it looked like purple,  black and blue soup turning, and I freaked out! I was so scared that I lost Patch even though he was at my feet on a leach. When I looked at my house the trees formed the shape of a tunnel and a little white light was where my black front door was. I  grabbed Patch and ran in the house and that’s when I heard a BIG BANG and the lights went out.

The next day I went outside and a 400 year old popular tree fell down a few inches from my truck. If I  didn’t listen to that VOICE, I would have been crushed and electrocuted by the falling powerlines.

If you Google Frank Perrin CPA and click on the memorial website and go to the photos on the first page to see the angel looking at the park and then go to the last page and see the pictures I took after hearing the VOICE protecting me from danger.

It’s going on 7 years since Frank was poisoned by his Doctor and I  didn’t date unail 4 year and 11 months later. I  met this all American guy who reminded me of my beloved fiance Frank. The ONLY difference between these two is that Frank LOVED me and Tony LUSTER after me.

I writing you today because I seen Tony’s true colors…He IS a player and an intelligence officer who likes to play James Bond… I guess I was his Jinx aka Halley Berry Bond Girl…

IT’S NOT COOL, to play with a young widows heart, so I cut him loose.

I was upset with myself for dating Franks Doppelganger and thinking that I could replace the irreplaceable.

I knew that I had a guardian angel because I caught her on camera and the VOICE saving my life multiple times.

I went to YouTube and found a mediation video on healing and contacting your guardian angel.

I know that she exist so I  wanted to reach out for help and protect from evil people who want to do me harm.

About 5 minutes into the mediation I start seeing different shades of Purple moving and changing shapes like a  Kaledoscope.

The purple shapes and movement was affecting my mediation with my eyes closed, so I would open my eyes and shut them and the shapes reappeared.

After meditating I Googled mediation and seeing purple shapes, and found you…

Sorry for the long reply, but I had to get this off my chest… 0:)

I’ve just started meditating and last night I saw a purple cloud or mist kind of spinning slowly. It kinda freaked me out at first then I liked it. Wasn’t sure what it was or meant do had to google and came across this post. Can’t wait to try again. 

Eva (0) (@Eva-Elings) 6 years, 10 months ago ago

Hello there – I see the lilac to dark blue pulsating light too! Aslo it sometimes forms a shape of a circle and with an white aoura around. The circle with a feel of a stone or planet it moving and changing size and disappear. Then a new on appear and do the same thing. Today in a group meditation when it happened again I did realize that the repeted “night mare” I had when I was 9 years old and that scared me since I did not know what it was – was just THIS :-) I would love to join a community on fb or similar with people experiencing the same <3

aw (0) (@whimsicity) 6 years, 10 months ago ago

Yep, I wouldn’t say that i have seen colors, but I feel pulsating waves around me and my whole body starts vibrating in ever increasing waves. The first time this happened to me with such intensity it increased until I felt a pop at my third eye. Ever since then its felt like that for me. I even begin to feel wind blowing on my face and body. 

Heaven Piercer (0) (@HeavenPiercer) 6 years, 10 months ago ago

we could only beat around the bush when answering your question, you are the only one that truly knows. I would say throw a bunch of blank shots in the darkness and soon enough you will find yourself and be even more wiser. Truth is singular but we all perceive it in millions of forms, hope you find it.

Gina (1) (@Gina-Santopadre-Szush) 6 years, 9 months ago ago

Hi, I don’t know what it means but I have the same thing.  Mine morphs into purple, green, blue and yellow and will keep rotating.  .  I was told by a meditation guru that I need to swim past it to get where I’m going.  Keep trying, I don’t know its all I see really.  Not much help. :)

You reached peaks of concentration. Keep going , it does not harm you. There is nothing to bother about.

Do not engage the purple and blue lights.

Do not listen to this repkly. What is happening is good, not bad.

Eyeswideopen93 (1) (@Hblake10) 6 years, 6 months ago ago

So I hope you can also let me know if this rings a bell for you. I gained consciousness of what I was and who’s around me at a very early age, I’d say between three and four, I was staring out the window in my car seat as I often would and I would notice against the blue sky I could see, if I fixed both eyes in a single spot more or less, a pulsating tunnel of purple hexagons. By pulsating I mean almost flashing with purple color and an indescribable shimmer. You must understand it doesn’t overtake my vision I just notice it if I want. I have never truly meditated I would say. I have just always had a wondering open anylitical mind. But I’d like to know what it really is, and if anyone else can see anything like this. It’s always made me feel like there is more to it but i always put it off by thinking everyone could probably see it.
