Somehow I developed a habit of smoking ciggarette before going to meditation. I am not sure if this has the impact.
But Vipassana has helped me change my life and notice more finer details in life.
Metta to all
Don't forget that the mind influences the type of feelings/sensations that arise. If you can generate gladness & joy in the mind, this will calm the body and "sensations" will be more pleasant. I obviously dont know for sure but you might be over concentrating or using a technique that is not letting you actually enjoy the session. Happy mind first, "happy" body follows. Contemplating on a happy (nonsensual) time in your life could help. Smoking is bad for you. You will have to excuse me now, I need a quick fag.
