With sleep I have intense dreams that I meditate on..

While awake..I do Pranayamic breathing...and nostril...and Chakra meditation...and just basic attention meditation...

Each month I gain a new level of meditation...which is made up by a bunch of minor levels of meditation that you can gain in a day..Just from being dedicated to breath work..and meditation my life has improved..and I feel almost that I can work miracles.. or that I am miraculously happy and at peace..

I keep seeing bright colors in my minds eye..

I wonder if its the same type of energy that is used in Reiki?

And my question states as well..the type of meditation people do to experience something like what I am experiencing..

I'm usually in a state of happiness, the world has so much to give.  Unless my mobile browser has just refreshed and deleted my messages twice in a row, in which case I am no longer in a meditative state, though I try to return quickly

I try not to be in a state of meditation anywhere but on the mat, or seated on a chair. After meditation I always 'ground' myself after meditating so I can do things like drive my car without being distracted. There are elements to take with me to everyday life, such as being mindful, or even some of the energy from the meditation experience, but that's about it. Otherwise I have the general long term benefits of reduced stress and so on.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

I cycle through a wide variety of different mind states throughout the day. I associate the meditative mind with being empty and open but when I’m concentrating on a project, like painting, I’m close and continuous. In both cases the sense of a separate “self” disappears or is absorbed. In between those two are a whole range of mind states, from emotions like anger and joy to inner dialogues and story lines.

Many times are good for inner meditation work. When I do yoga or lift weights I combine breath counting and a hua tuo with the exercise. There are also certain repetitive activities, like splashing my face with cold water first thing in the morning or walking from the back door to my workshop, when I'm able to return to the present moment and the immediate situation and the mind can open up and unite with external objects and the immediate environment. When I’m waiting in line someplace like a grocery store or bank I try to empty out and open up to those around me. Walking and driving, traveling in planes and buses, are especially good for meditation – there’s something about the external movement that makes it easier to find that inner stillness.

My first formal meditation training was with Shunryu Suzuki in the 60's and later with Kobun, Robert Aitken and many other teachers (mainly zen). However, I've spent the most time practicing on my own, which is all I do now. I'm living in a rather isolated area so I miss connecting with other practitioners. Despite my interest in zen I've made an effort to remain secular. You can visit my website at http://www.frogzen.com

I notice that too sometimes.  It's like there's a more obvious contrast between stillness and movement?
