Hi I am so called Brahman Hindu(although i am an atheist) but i have been meditating since the last 2 weeks and i want to say it is hands down one of the most beautiful experience ever.Although lately i have been going deeper as people like to call it and want to share my experience regarding this deep state and also need some guidance if any one can help me.
So this happened yesterday while my meditation (i do it by concentrating my breath) i guess i was so deep that my breath felt like really long i got scared and snapped out of it.Today while doing it again i counted the seconds i can intake air through nose which was around 10 seconds which is weird i guess and long considering my past xD(calculated using the sound of the second's hand of wall clock). I am curious as to how should i go deeper by the same breathing concentration exercise or should i stop breathing kind of a thing after i reach this state(cause i can hold my breath also for a long time).Also what is next for me from here on.
Thanks for the help/guidance and sorry for wasting your time. TL;DR:- deep state i feel like taking real long breath intake which is scaring me should i go deeper or like do something else also how to proceed forward
