When I meditate, I get a drastic rise in body temperature after some time. It's not a problem, but it gets to the point where sweat drips from my forehead. It is in no way unpleasant and does not interfere with the meditation itself.
But nevertheless, I feel that I should ask someone more experienced if this means anything. Can anyone help?
I once had a few sessions where, in a reasonably good state of mindful calm, I noticed sweat drip from my armpits. This was always gently surprising to notice, as I don't recall the heating in the room as being the cause...it seemed to happen when the body was very still and calm, but the mind was fairly concentrated, and only happened if I was putting in a fair bit of effort, not if I was being a slacko.
Basically, I wouldn't worry about it. I think it's just a by product of effort, even just mental effort. Maybe you need to relax more (and me also, it would seem) and find a way to have wakeful and sharp mindfulness, without it being too much of an effort? That's the only thing I can think of that might help.
