- I am not quite ready
- I think too much
- I am missing keys not needed by other traditions but are required in mine, at least for beginners.
- Conflicts from serious to silly internet things that I don't care about.
- People trying to demonstrate things to me of an occult nature or simply to sell. I can actually see and hear these 'people' during the process. It is a bit like watching television but being more engaged in the process.
- Imaginary conversations between myself and someone else.
- Internal chit chat
The key thing is easy to overcome. It is just a matter of focus.
