it depends on what you set your mind to focus on during meditation . if you focus on negative thoughts of course thats not going to help and will make things worse but if you focus your mind on a waterfall or a positive thought it can help . the purpose of meditation to to gain control over your thoughts but that takes practice . if your not used to doing that and cannot control your thoughts its best to avoid during psychosis i think because you naturally be focusing your mind on negative thoughts .

Read some of the other threads on mindfulness!

“Mindfulness interventions are moderately effective in treating negative symptoms and can be useful adjunct to pharmacotherapy;”

I have posted my own expearnces of meditation a few times, so here is something ddiffrent! Do a course focused on meditation for phycosis, as unless your in need of a spiritual journey justy keep to nhe parts that help with your condition and not other BS that some practitioners preach about.

I mostly did mindful breathing with labeling voices and sensations sounds smells etc and bodyscans and relaxation. I never did the whole mindful activity thing i.e. walking, but kinda wish I’d added it to my bag of tricks I use to stay well.

A long time ago I went through a period where I did transcendental meditation, got about the right amount of exercise, went to AA meetings, and cut down my coffee to 1 or 2 cups a day. My grades at school were good - above a 3.5. When I fell off the wagon my grades dropped badly. The promoters of transcendental meditation claimed unrealistic benefits from this kind of meditation, but I did find it to be a good form of relaxation therapy. It didn’t cure my anxiety, though. That’s why I fell off the wagon.

I have felt overwhelmingly happy for several months after one particular meditation session…fasting and celibacy seems to boost meditations effects…

Meditation makes me psychotic pretty fast. I did 20 minutes a day for a week, 9 months ago. After a week I got quite psychotic and ever since just a minute of it makes me a bit iffy. But it did have many beneficial effects before that happened, I really wish I could have kept doing it.

There are probably techniques you can use such as labelling voices that would enable you to carry on meditating in a non judgemental manner!

I don’t know if it helps with psychosis; I don’t think so, but I know for sure that for me it helps with negative symptoms.
