  1. Sometimes when I meditate, I feel like I have slipped in “the gap of time” If there is such
    a thing. Other times, I feel that my spirit is leaving my body. This causes me to be fearful.
    What do you suggest? I don’t want to be afraid of meditation and I don’t want to stop but
    now I find that I’m afraid to just let go.
