"In the early stages of meditation the ego will struggle. This coupled with the uncoiling of energy can lead to experiences which may be unpleasant or unsettling. This is very common. So common that it is included in the story of the Buddha’s enlightenment. This is nothing more than a trick of ego. Ego does not want to be silenced. It has a survival instinct and it will do anything it can to stop you from reining it in. Everything from making your nose itch and back ache to playing Lady Gaga songs in your head at full volume. It will even conjure up false and irrational fears. You simply reject them. Just as you would reject any other distraction. Keep rejecting them until ego gives up.
