Other times, more often, the mindfulness triggers anxious thoughts or memories, and I experience a heightened sense of anxiety later in the day. It is akin to strong emotion welling up but never breaking through to the surface, or as if I could use a prolonged and cathartic cry.
Everything I have ever read about meditation talks about its relaxing and anxiety reducing states. Why is my meditation triggering the opposite effects?
Does anyone else have this experience?
