Hi guys,

I just wondered how many of you meditate as part of your self-improvement plan?

Which meditation technique has worked the best for you?

I meditate almost every day for 40-60 minutes and it really helps me to stay focused on my work, to deal with the fast paced world that we live in, become a more grounded and calmer person and generally feel a lot happier than I used to feel.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts if you care to share?

What meditation techniques have not worked for you?

Cheers, PW

    I have never tried meditating but it is something I want to look into. It sounds like a great way to relieve my stress.

      It can be quite confusing if you don't know anything about meditation. I think you will find about 700+ meditation techniques available right now. Some are rooted in religion, some have belief systems associated with them.

      When I first began meditation, I just wanted to reduce my stress levels, I have tried many different techniques over the past year or so and settled very well with a more modern technique that has been scientifically validated. It works great for me.

      One of the best ways I have found which is suitable for beginners is focus meditation. Meaning you simply sit quietly and focus on a candle, your breath or a mantra. You can download free courses online by running a google search for "free meditation course"

      Meditation has been a lifesaver to me. I would highly recommend you check it out further

      Good luck, PW

    Meditation is a simple thing.

    Find a nice quiet spot somewhere, sit down in the way that makes you feel most comfortable. It doesn't have to be like in the movies where you cross your legs and have your arms straight out in a room full on incense.

    You just need a nice quiet spot, somewhere where you can hear only whats inside your head.

    If you're anything like me, you've got a lot going on. Systematically shut everything down. Turn off whatevers talking inside your head, one worry at a time. Until you can simply be.

    Breathe deeply. Put your mind to zero.

    Holding something in your hands, possibly something that has great significant meaning to you, gently rubbing your fingers on it can help. Like a favorite baseball or lucky pen.

    I cast Runes myself, and having the satin bag in my hands, or my favorite runes helps tremendously.

    Just let go of all the earthly worries you have, and relax. Once you've turned off all the worries, ideas will come naturally to you, and they won't be hampered by the noise.

    However, that is just my way of doing it. I know some guys who meditate by working out. They work their body to the point where they can only think of the next rep, the next push-up, the next mile, and then, when they stop to relax, their mind is at zero, and allows them to think clearly.

    If you'd like to talk to me more on the subject, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    I've been meditating daily for more than ten years now and I'm totally hooked on it. I KNOW I feel different when I miss it for a day or a few days -- I'm off kilter.

    I sit for an hour and pray, say affirmations and meditate. I start with my prayers and affirmations and end with meditation. I usually meditate for about half an hour, sometimes longer.

    If you are a beginner -- start with just ten minutes. It is fine to start with just a little and you'll get all of the wonderful benefits of meditation. You'll sleep better, it has lots of health benefits. Meditators look younger too!

      Hi Abby,

      You may want to try some form of gratitude technique alongside your others. When you just sit quietly and feel truly grateful for different things in your life, you would be amazed at how great it makes you feel. I play a little music after each meditation session (7 mins) and use this time to do my gratitude work.

      Hope that helps, PW

    Not as often as I should.. especially when I consider how much good it does me.

    I'm an incest survivor. Dissociated, don't remember anything from 1963 to 1968. How does that manifest itself today?

    Not near as much as it did, but for past 20 years I've had what they call "Hypo Mania". Meaning I'm usually revved up, I "idle" at 5400 rpm.

    Meditation helps quite a bit, but at the same time, it can be a little hard to get myself to want to do it.

    Being "hyper" has also led to a predilection to:
    • coffee to excess
    • substance abuse
    • sugar abuse
    • addiction substitution

    Learning to 'acclimate' myself to meditation, the pro active act of teaching my innards to get accustomed to it has been a challenge.

    I'm celebrating my first 100 days consecutive sobriety from Crack, tackling that demon was more important than meditating.

    Meditation while using is kinda like 'spinning your wheels'

    (note to the female Warriors- I apologize for the frequent automotive metaphors... My CDL driving record is SOooo close to being able to be expunged it's going to my head. In Maryland, when you've gone 36 consecutive months without a moving violation you qualify for getting a 'clean slate')

      David,

      It's great that it helps but what makes it hard to do? Is it the technique you use? Your posture? Outside influences or noise? Or something else?

      How did you learn to meditate?

        I try to do a little bit of meditation every day, don't have a lot of time for it though.

        Meditate about how fortunate I am to live in the U.S. and all the other things I have. Regarding IM, I prefer putting a few things in writing, and meditate around them.

      David,

      In my experience, the very tendency to want to GET OUT and DO SOMETHING to get away from having to sit down in meditation is in reality just another symptom of not wanting to face ourselves, being that often we are the sum of our past experiences, traumas, beliefs, and so on and, during meditation, we WILL be made to face them again.

      It is not easy, but very, very well-worth the end result, as when we learn to face those upheavals on a personal level, WITHOUT judging them or thinking them "bad" or "good" but just pockets of energy that have already served their purposes and whose time has now come to die off and fall away from our "bodies", the liberation you feel is...

      ... quite something.

      Have you looked into the "Bliss Technique"? Haha, i can understand why it might be controversial among some people. It's DAMN effective.

      And just on a side-note: since I have meditated, I seem to be attractive women like crazy, without even trying. "Inner Game" indeed

    I dont meditate but i do practice Yoga. I do it everyday for 25 to 30 minutes. I am a regular yoga and gym person and i have to admit that these two activities in my life are the main source of my energy and my strength. The day i miss any of these two, my whole day just cracks down and rumbles into pices. Hence, I dont know much about meditation but I will always promote regular Yoga and regular gym exercises.

    Yoga and meditation are two practices that really have a positive impact on my life. They help me to focus, relieve stress, slow down and get into the moment and out of the chaos of daily life.

    As others have mentioned, it's pretty subtle, but I definitely notice the difference in my day and my energy flow when I skip either yoga or meditation. I tend to use a guided meditation, and there are tons available online. I keep some in my ipod all the time so that when I have some spare moments I can go inward for a time and feel renewed and energized.

    I recommend both yoga and mediation to anyone looking to find a way to increase their energy and focus. It's just wonderful stuff.

    Peace,

    Evelyn

      Yes I meditate twice a day for 20mins, early morning and evening and I love it.
      My meditation is based on opeing my heart chakraa (energies), (Buddhist meditation)
      I sit in a quiet spot cross legged, begin by deep breathing , relax every single part of my body.
      Any thoughts , sensations, emotions that creep up, I just observe and let them thru.
      I then bring my awareness to my heart and visualise it as a lotus flower, as each petal opens light is radiated in all part of my body. As the body feels energised, I feel at bliss and at this time because I'm in touch with my soul I offer gratitude, well being for loved ones ...its just such a beautiful feeling.
      My meditation keeps me alert, grounded and creates space within myself. I would highly recommend it
      Yoga is another passion of mine, I use to do Tai Chi 2 years ago.

      Yes, I do.

      And lately something very weird has been happening to me as a result. I'll be sitting there in a completely meditative state, and suddenly a small pressure will start developing in the forefront of my head, in the area between my eyes (where the pineal gland would be). As I continue the meditation, the pressure gets stronger...and stronger...and stronger. Thing is, it's not a bad pressure. It never hurts. I just think it's weird.

      Anyone else experience this kind of thing?

    Absolutely I do.

    Peacefulwarrior, your nick is also the name of one of my favorite movies/book.

    Joshua Creighton, Yes, I have had that happen. They say that it is your third eye, and it is a chakra point that is opening. If you want to have fun with it, imaging a funnel is connected to this point and in your mind spin funnel clockwise.

    I also experience a feeling of pressure that begins in the area of my third eye and continues around my head, almost like a crown is resting there.

    I prefer to "cheat" when I meditate, and I use holosync, hemi-sync, Ultra Meditation or my new friend Brain Ev (which I review on my namesake site johnderrick.com)

    I used to meditate every day for 20 mins. I fell out of practice in the last couple of years and I am nowhere near as calm and focused as I used to be. I still meditate every now and then, but I keep forgetting to make it a regular practice (life gets in the way).

    I taught myself by setting a stopwatch to 10 mins and sitting down with the intention of clearing my mind. It took about 2 weeks to become easy.

    I have since tried other things like mantras and cds, but I think the 10 minute habit was just as effective.

    I can tell you from personal experience that during the year and a half I spent doing daily meditation that my outlook on thing changed for the better in many ways.

    Since then I have fallen out of practice. The main roadblock I run into is getting so relaxed I fall asleep. Generally it helps of you can sit up with your back against something. That way if you start hunching over and snoozing, your most likely to catch it early.

    As for my sound of preference? If I can do it outside without too many dogs in the neighborhood barking that always works. Inside I either prefer white noise or a metronome.

    As far as any strange feeling while I meditate...about the best I get is when I am doing a White Light meditation if I focus enough on my hands they actually become very warm to the touch. If I keep it going they actually begin to hurt. Someone explained it to me that after focusing like that you need to "ground" the energy. So that's what I do. The pain goes away.

    Meditation is a passion of mine.

    Point-blank: here is what you do... sit down, and AS YOU QUIETEN your mind, worries, past-traumas, prejudices, false self-indentifications, etc. will rise up in your mind... almost semaltaneously, and you will be made to Face them.

    DO NOT resist those upheavals or judge them as "good" or "bad". Just let them be. Like anything, those emotions, fears, discomforts, etc. have a "life-cycle" of their own and just as they had been seeded and made to germinate in your being by life's many experiences, so too will they grow to the surface, flower, and then whither and die off on their own WITHOUT your doing anything.

    When this happens, the lightness in your being, the bliss, the euphoria that follows is simply undescribable.

    With that, "Chi" (Bio-electric Energy) in your body will start to move freely, and you will feel at once stronger, more whole, more abliss, and mentally more functional.

    AND i'd wager that it makes you a faaaaar more effective person.

    Again, find a quiet place, and then USE THAT SAME PLACE in the coming session. Then just sit down and... come "Face to Face" with yourself. And let whatever happens be "Okay." - Take on the observers' seat, and you can't go wrong

      Yes. On & Off for years. But even when im not "Meditating" i put myself in peaceful 'meditative' states. I began on my own as i have been a spiritualist and wondered about the divine since i was a child.

      My meditations exploded when i began using the HBI technique. I kind of stripped away from them for a while simply because i dont like the fact they charge so high for 'knowledege' but simply put from my experience, meditation is the single best thing for growth that any person can do in any place and any where.

      Its good to know what you want out of meditation. Simple stress relief, higher knowledge, profound experiences? Then go towards where you gravitate naturally. Me personally i dont stick with any institutes as i believe they can greatly hinder growth. But i do go to them on the occassion to learn and grow.

    Centering prayer is what I've done in the past with great results. It's inexpensive to learn. I do recommend you take the course from a qualified teacher. Various churches offer the instruction from time to time.

    Unfortunately, I'm now getting back into the meditation habit. I do believe one reason I'm not that attracted to drugs or alcohol is because of my meditation experiences in the past. Meditation really helped me be calm and confident and just a heckava lot more happy.

    Why did I fall off my habit? It's easy to skip your practice. Of course you don't notice much change at first. It's only after 3 months have passed and your mind is racing around again that you remember how centered you felt when you regularly meditated.

    There are many forms of meditation, and many "tricks"

    Here is a great meditation that not only helps with calming the mind, but also with bringing more prosperity and wealth into your life (whatever that means to you).

    First - be sure that you are breathing properly. Work on breathing slowly and deeply with your abdomen and NOT your chest.

    Sit in a comfortable spot where you will be undisturbed for 10-20 minutes or more.

    Slow your breathing at a comfortable rate, and make it deeper... this should be done with great ease.

    In your mind, imagine that you have a bucket and are in a beautiful natural setting. Nearby is a small pool of golden water, with a rock overhang from which more golden water is slowly dripping.

    Catch a drop of the golden water in your bucket... each drop falls with each slow breath. You can catch as many as you like, but 20 is a good number to start with.

    As you catch each golden drop, the sound of them hitting the bucket is a mix of water hitting wood...and a gold coin hitting wood.

    When you have enough drops, turn around in your mind and stroll over to a nearby tree. This is your prosperity tree. Notice that the leaves of the tree are $100 bills.

    Gently pour the golden water over the roots of the tree, and see/hear the golden coins flow out and dissolve into the soil.

    Now - for each drop that you gathered, you will pick up $100 bills from the ground... these are the fallen leaves of the tree and are yours to take.

    Pick up each bill with each slow, gentle breath... and stack them neatly in your palm. Put 2-3 bills in your pocket. This is your "daily bread" or income for today. You can relax in the knowledge that today your needs will be met.

    Take the remaining bills and put them in your pocket. Walk/fly/teleport yourself to your bank, and put these bills into the canister of the drive up banking center. See the canister go up through the tube and into the bank. This is your universal account. Feel how great it is to know that you have this money/energy here when or if you need it, and that it grows each day.

    This meditation is not only chock full of prosperity images to program your subconscious, but it also gives your the opportunity to FEEL relaxed and prosperous.

    More importantly, it gives your brain something to do while you breathe slowly and deeply. You will notice a subtle change if you can get 50 good, deep easy breaths... and another change somewhere around 100.

    Enjoy!

    Ron

    One of the things that makes Meditation a powerful tool is that people can see immediate results.

    All your worldly problems melt away.

    Of course, the more you do it, the better you will be at calming your mind, and the quicker you will get into the meditative state.

    Just be patient the first time you try this. Make you have ample time set aside where you will not be disturbed.

    Any by all means... cheat. Use some form of brainwave altering CD (with headphones)....

    Meditation is simply put.... amazing.

    Its totally true that when you get into a routine doing med each day you really DO feel the difference for the better.

    I notice that if I skip for couple days it "somehow" affects me in a negative way.

    I meditate now, without exception for at least a half hour per day. Very busy so I keep it short and sweet because its best to do a bit each and every day than just 3 times per week for an hour each time.

    *Highly recommended* if you give give it TIME to start its positive effects.

    30 minutes each day - same time.
    Focus on your breathing.
    Close your eyes.
    Let go and relax.

    All the best!

    Just a quick note:

    Structured meditation is great for keeping the "monkey mind" busy... meanwhile you can focus on breathing and calming yourself.

    Keep in mind that the MOST EFFECTIVE form of meditation is experience EMPTINESS... its simple to say and difficult to do.

    As you progress, your structured meditation will allow you to have greater and greater moments of "no-thought", and this is really the goal. The word goal is not a good one to use, but it gets the point across.

    The reason is that when we are empty, and our mind is silent, then we are full of Divine energy. That moment of peace IS enlightenment. The more Divine energy we can allow, the better everything is... from happiness to money to business to enjoying each moment.

    Consider the ancient metaphor:

    The mind is the surface of a pond. When it is active and full of ripples, we can only "see" the choppy bits of reflected light. When the mind is peaceful, calm and still, the beautiful moon, stars and scene are clearly visible.

    Your mind IS a mirror of the world, and meditation is a way to experience this moment fully and completely.

    At the end of it all, we only have this one, eternal moment....

    regards,
    Ron

      Nothing wrong with engaging in a specific discipline.

      Now I just do it.

      I've meditated for years. There is no big mystery or secret to it. It's more a matter of practice over time. Daily is a good idea. And it can be for as little as 10-15 minutes a day. That's all that is really needed to benefit.

      You can start out with one minute a day and build up as apposed to trying to make yourself right off sit for 10-15. This will give you the habit of practice.

      You need a quiet space with no distractions. You will need to sit comfortably. Close your eyes and take several deep breaths in and out to start to relax. There is no agenda here other then to quiet your mind.

      When your mind wanders, simply gently release the thoughts, and do not encourage the thought by pondering it any further.

      You may find it easier to quiet your mind by focusing on your breathing in and out, or mentally counting your breaths. Or listening to a quiet hum of a fan. Or a quiet humming in your mind.

      It's a simple process that gets easier with practice that's more natural then you might think. Don't make too much of it. There are no big hidden secrets to it.

      You are simply sitting quietly, with a quiet mind for a period of time. You've trained your mind to be busy all the time and you do that very well, now train it to be quiet for a short period of time.

    For me, "Mindfulness Meditation"
    has been crucial to my getting
    on track and staying on track.

    It's a good way to learn how
    to meditate.

    When they talked about being
    aware in present in The Secret,
    I just didn't get it.

    But now, I've learned how to
    be Mindful in everything I do
    and it makes a huge difference.

    I downloaded a free podcast and
    that's all I use.

    It works...definitely

      I have also become an observer of my thoughts & actions (mindfulness) throughout the day to "see" if they are reflections of gratefulness & love. Another thing I find myself doing is observing people more when I'm out...it's amazing to notice how many people let negativity rule their day & guide their thoughts and actions.
      I make an effort to meditate at least once a day. Most of my meditation is done with music, although sometimes I will just sit in stillness listening to all the sounds resonating in the environment around me...especially when I go out exploring nature.

    I don't know if this will help considering your already experienced. I read a book by Eckhart Tolle that talks about being in the moment with each breathe and starting with meditation to do so. Focus on your everything that's involved in taking your breathe and then translating that in to every moment of your life. I recently received a package in the mail that I requested from centerpointe.com that help you meditate. I did it yesterday and it was amazing. It was only the sample package, but the cool thing about it is you don't even have to pay for shipping and handling. I will defintely be buying their products, just because the free CD that they sent. I reccomend you try that out. I'm new here. I just caught your your headline and thought I'd drop in. Anyway I hope this helps.

    Hi PW

    I learned TM (Transcendental Meditation) in the early 80s and although I've dropped it at times in my life, I always return to it.

    I have tried Wayne Dyer's Manifesting Meditation, (which uses sound), and one I learned from a Deepak Chopra book which focuses on the breath, and I've used some brain-entrainment music too, but TM is the one that feels the most comfortable and peaceful to me.

    It isn't just stress relief either - it's actually connecting with a higher intelligence - whatever you believe that to be. I find my life flows better and I am more creative when I am meditating regularly.

    Thanks for a nice question.

    All good things
    Trevor.

    You should'nt meditate everyday then it becomes work. Take one or two days of from meditating every week. Try to get an half an hour to meditate. 5 min or 15 min I have found at least for me isn't enough time to slow down. I go to a local "temple" and meditate with others once a week.

    And don't do things like gratitude stuff. The point of meditation is observation and if your zen one pointedness. Focus on your breathing. That is all that is required.

    Yes I do, almost daily. I actually have a sacred space in my front room where I do this - a little temple room! Depending on time, I set the mood and light candles and burn oils conducive for meditation. Creating the space for meditation, both in time and physically, helps me appreciate myself and what I have created so far in my life. It increases my self belief and esteem. I feel more connected with what is good and what I can improve on.

    I find that if I sit quietly with no structure to meditate with, then I get bombarded by my thoughts which doesn't work for me! So I observe my mind/thoughts like I'm sitting outside myself and watch them on a theatre stage or TV. I push them away gently and focus on God within me and outside me.

    The benefits are manifold. I feel closer to God, connected to the universe and more content. In my day to day life I am more intuitive, more connected to my gut instinct about people and my decisions in business. I am finding I am more at choice in my responses and not so reactive.

    Hi Peaceful Warrior,

    Yes, I do it and teach my clients to do it as well.

    As somebody already said in this thread, there are 700+ meditation techniques. I can't verify that number, but it wouldn't surprise me (and I teach this stuff at Universities).

    The simplest and, I believe, most effective meditation technique from ancient sources is simply to sit and observe your breathing. Just allow your mind to watch your breath enter through your nose and sink to your lower dantian (the body's primary energy storage area, about 2 inches below the navel), and then exit as you exhale.

    Keep your focus on your breath light, easy and natural.

    In Taoism this is called "combining energy and spirit" (i.e., your breath with your mental attention).

    The state you'll eventually arrive at, if you practice consistently, is one where you no longer identify your self with your thoughts, where you can just observe thoughts without getting caught up in them.

    In other words, you think only when you decide too. And when you're not thinking, you're not obsessively thinking, which wastes a huge amount of energy.

    After you've gotten good at the sitting practice, you can go on and master meditation in movement, and eventually make your meditative state into your "default setting". There are specific methods for this, of course, but once you understand the basic principles, it's actually not rocket science.

    Hope that helps. The REAL key is consistent practice, even when you can't seem to keep thoughts out of your mind and you think it's not working.

    Now go find a place to sit...

    Meditation has actual measurable effects on one's brain.
    We crate our brains by what we think.
    Meditation can help us be more in charge of our thinking and less influenced by the memories and thoughts of the past that our brains use to decode the perceptual stimuli that we encounter as we go through life.
    Yes, I meditate.
    I have a book and free e book that are more like personal seminars in book format as they involve Visual Exercise/Experiences that can change your life so that you actually see more energy, and that in turn will help stop the subconscious unwanted negative emotions and thoughts that are associated with visual memories. After people complete one of these exercises I always as them to pause, close their eyes and take a few deep breaths.

    Meditating has been a great way to keep me on lifes track and I highly recommend it to everybody. It doesnt necessarily mean sitting in dark room by yourself listening to soft chimes. It can include taking a walk by yourself and not thinking about anything except 'being' and nature (not about what you have done, need to do, or want to do). For some, a 60 second period each day where we shut our eyes at the computer and close all thoughts will suffice. Anybody can do it and Everybody should. my opinion at least

      Great Topic,

      Meditation is such a loaded word... it is a shame really. Another way to describe it would be "entering into the now". Anything you can do that gets you into that zone where you are fully present with what you are doing is good for your mind and body.

      I especially enjoy "sitting meditaion" eyes closed following the breath, it makes the rest of the day work better. If you are doing 40-60 minutes of meditation daily that will take you very far.

      Another book with some good meditation techniques is Hearts on Fire, The Tao of Meditation by Stephen Wolinsky. He gives a series of different methods, which you can choose from. One I really like and find useful is transmutation of energy, where you focus on an emotion, rather than the story behind the emotion, then feel where the emotion is in your body and then start to feel it as energy rather than fear or anger or whatever. I find it usually changes quite quickly to something some positive.

      I also love Tai Chi, which I first learned as a student in China. It calms the mind and feels like meditation through movement.

    The easiest way is just to focus solely on your breath for a few minutes. Even if you meditate for 5 minutes, and only have a quiet mind for the last 30 seconds, of was valuable time.

    2. Slows heartbeat
    3. Calms the mind and soul
    4. Improves mental clarity
    5. Leads to insight and inspiration
    6. Improves decision making
    7. Reduces and may even eliminate fear, anger, pride, envy, greed
    8. Promotes feelings of love and connectedness
    9. Improves your gratitude level which improves your mood
    10. Puts mind into a state of "allowing" to promote faster manifesting
    11. Promotes healing
    12. Improves digestion
    13. Reduces pain

    I'm an on-again, off-again meditator as well, and I've also found binaural beats to be a helpful way to get back on the serenity horse, as it were.

    There's some pretty powerful tracks out there, especially if you experiment with things like BrainWave Generator. But the one that has the most natural feeling for me is just binaural beats masked by a realistic rainfall track. It's like training wheels that help me re-connect more easily with that lovely feeling that meditation provides.

    The greatest breakthrough in my life was the discovery of Sahaja Yoga, which is a yoga of meditation, and which I have been practicing steadily for over 20 years. It is always free of charge wherever it is taught, yet is the most powerful, transforming force I have ever witnessed. To say that it can bring out the best in people is an understatement. As much as this is starting to sound like a commercial, I can assure you this recommendation comes 100% from the heart, & that no money ever changes hands in exchange for learning about it or practicing it - no upsell, nothing! I can only urge you to go and check it out for yourself at sahajayoga.org - you can even find there an online self-realisation experience in audio or video form, as well as information on where you can attend sessions near you. I myself run a weekly meeting in London, and we all do it because of a keen desire to share what is basically a very simple but practical and powerful inner awakening.
    Feel free to contact me - or let me know if you benefit in any way.

    I love to meditate and never paid attention to there being different styles. I just sit and empty my brain. Its amazing the things that will creep into your head. Just before I am finished I always the question if there is a message for anyone? One time the name John Denver popped in my head. It meant nothing to me. So I asked the group if John Denver meant anything to anyone and the lady beside me almost fell off her chair. She said her son was getting married on the weekend and his dad had been killed in a motorcycle accident years ago. The son wanted to leave an empty chair in the front of the church and put a few of his dad's things on it. They looked through a box they have at home with a few of his things and in that box was a piece of paper with a song written by John Denver and they had just been looking at it the night before. To her it was a sign that her husband was saying he was going to be there. Freaky but cool

    The kind of meditation i like best is moving meditations. having done marital arts for years a lot of our practice involved moving and observing.

    Walking meditation
    This involves just going for a walk . It need not be to anywhere special it can just be going to work or to the store, or whatever. The object is that as youre walking you focus on your breathing, I dont count breaths merely I become aware of the air going in and out of my body as I walk, I notice the rhythm of my stride in time with my walking , I notice how certain areas of my body feel warmer than other parts . I try to limit all distracting thoughts and focus on what my body is DOING getting a kinetic connection so to speak. If done right this can be very mesmerizing and can really put you in touch with your body. The Bible says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. getting out and walking helps you to get in touch. I live near the beach so i have the advantage to go on the boardwalk or the sand.

    Another twist is to look at your surroundings as you walk. try not to comment on what you see, for example, "wow thats a tall building" "man, it looks like rain:" "wow! whut a babe! Hubba , Hubba!' instead of this just simply observe without judgement. You will find if you do this RIGHT that you really DONT spend a lot of time simply LOOKING and BEING OBSERVANT. These are two things that are neccessary for success.

It's kinda like a traffic cop the way I look at it. you've got all these cars(thoughs) driving slow driving fast, cutting other cars off, honking their horn etc. all trying to go at the same time and pileups and accidnts. Meditation is like the traffic cop who blows the whistle and says EVERYBODY STOP AND SHUDDAPPPPP!!!!!! then he directs the cars, now you go, now you go, now you go...etc. This is why counting breaths is a good exercise, its not meant to shut everything out, its meant to focus you so that you can attend to things one at a time. Even a person who is a so called muti tasker takes that particular task their doing in a block of specific time, deals with it and moves on to the next task, even though it may appear to everyone else that he's "doing everything at once"

    I think the mind needs objects to focus on so in my meditations I will give it an object. Sometimes it's a passage of scripture from the Bible that I want an understanding, other times its a interpersonal problem I might be having with someone, so I do a type of mental rehearsal where Im visualizing responses to questions and actions. This is not rocket science and human beings do this naturally. It just takes dedication and persistence to become a habit.

    I meditate during Karate Practice, it's mandatory(in class) and it helps calm me down and relieve stress.

    I have recently gotten into binural beats and some self hypnosis techniques. I was really skeptical at first but I swear after a week of just goofing with it, I haven't felt this rested in years!

    I don't meditate per say but I practice breathing techniques as part of my Kung Fu.

    Meditation is such a broad term.
