As you quiet your mind, strange things will happen. You'll reduce the amount of gross distractions and start to notice the subtle energies, and after this the very subtle energies like the movement of your energy body.
In the process of all this certain powers will begin to be noticed, usually it's either subtle sounds or the sight. In Yoga the words for these two types of powers are divyachaksu siddhi, which is the clairvoyance of divine eye, and divyastrota siddhi, the clairvoyance of divine ear. (Like Superman's X-Ray vision and his Super Hearing abilities, and yes you can see vast and distant locations, or see what is on the other side of the brick wall you are facing during meditation. THIS SHIT IS REAL!!!)
After gross distractions have been reduced or eliminated, the subtle energies of sight and sound will begin to manifest. What you're really doing is increasing your awareness, that's what meditation does, you're increasing the awareness of your eyes and ears, you'll begin to notice more of what exists. You'll also begin to notice the triggers for almost anything that would cause a normal person to be affected by delusions of the mind, such as anger,ignorance, and desirous attachment. You'll notice the triggers for what usually causes anger and see the stupidity that someone is trying to use and be at an advantage using wisdom to defeat the ignorant attempted attack. Everyone can be reasoned with, that's what makes them Human, it's the Sociopaths who can't be reasoned with that you have to worry about.
Now these new awarenesses can become distractions if you are awed by your first experience of them and can hinder your practice. Look at them as a measurement of your Faith. I define Faith differently than that of the Christians. For me, Faith has to be generated (the silencing of the mind) and tested (the new phenomena you experience). Often when you experience this new awareness you are completely blown away that it happened, thinking that this is impossible to do, that is doubt. The longer you can hold this experience without questioning it or overreacting to it, is the strength of your Faith increasing.
It is said somewhere in the Bible, (now remember I consider Jesus as an early witch teaching others his Craft, but ignorant, fearful, and superstitious muggles who don't want to put in the time and practice to experience our inherent natural powers like to do shit the hard way and start shit) "If you would have Faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "move from here to there", and it will be done, nothing will be impossible for you.
Many muggles claim to have Faith, but none can do miracles, therefore they have no Faith. What they do have is lots of belief. Belief and Faith are not the same thing.
