I'm not confused,

I think the issue here isn't that you're confused, but that your wording is confusing. If your practice defines certain words in non-standard ways, that's going to be an obstacle to communicating with people who don't know those specialized definitions.

my meditation leads to total trance,

I'm not familiar with this term. What is the difference between total trance and,say, deep trance?

The more you put yourself at ease, the easier it is.

Wait, going by your statement of 'the more you put in', wouldn't making meditation easier be counter-productive? What you described sounds more like what I would call a relaxation exercise.

Thanks Sefiru, that's exactly what I was getting at.
