I was meditating last night, and I started feeling really weird. It started out as feeling like I was floating through space, which was cool. But then it started feeling like a combination of floating through space, riding a roller coaster, being drunk, and having an asthma attack. (I have asthma, so I know how an attack feels.) I noticed my heart was beating quite a bit faster. I opened my eyes and it was gone immediately. I wanted to continue what I was doing, so I closed my eyes, and I immediately felt like I was in a meditative state again. But then within a few seconds, the strange sensation occured.

Is that what's supposed to happen. I was hoping to go into a trance, and it almost felt like one. Has anyone else ever had that happen, or did I just happen to have an asthma attack at an incovenient time?

That sounds like onset of sleep paralysis to me actually, the same thing tends to happen to me when meditating especially on my back at least the floating in space and riding a roller coaster parts. People who practice lucid dreaming often point to these sensations as signs that you're getting close to falling asleep consciously using a method called Wake Initiated Lucid Dreaming or WILD. You probably had an asthma attack at an inconvenient time in addition.
