until this morning.
In order to quickly find a technique for beginners I did a Google search and went
with the first thing that seemed like I could easily do.
Disregarding the school of thought the technique stemmed from, or without a
specific goal in mind; I proceeded.
So, I set my oven's timer to 5 minutes and then sat on my living room floor,
crossed my legs, closed my eyes, and sat still.
Intuitively, I held my hands in front of me; cupped and facing upward.
The site I visited instructed its seekers to breathe in while imagining intense
white light entering your body.
Next, you exhale; focusing on your aura expanding.
Honestly, I believe in the benefits of meditation and breathing exercises, but get
skeptical when it comes to most of "the other stuff."
I couldn't visualize any white lights, and I sure as hell didn't see my aura

However, there is something I must admit to because something strange
My sense of time became distorted.
The five minutes that I sat there only felt like one minute.
That was weird.
I think I'm going to continue to experiment with this because I can see some
benefit in meditating; even from the first attempt.
For example, by far, the hardest part was keeping my eyes closed; next, was
trying to keep my body still; I had started to tremble from being in one position
for too long. So physical control is one benefit.
Another short-term benefit that I can foresee is mental control. Controlled
breathing takes mental dexterity before it becomes effortless.
Also, I think it is an excellent way to learn to control your thoughts and thus
your behavior. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about that side of things,
yet, so won't speak on them...
Well I geuss I will share my opinion of the above statement.
Personally, I believe that anyone who can control their thoughts and intentionally
mold their own behavior; automatically becomes a self-confident and potentially

Until next time Mind Warriors.
For now, at least, the only so called "hocus pocus abrahadabra" that I 100%
believe exists is lucid dreaming. It was derived from dream yoga and is now a
scientifically proven phenomenom.
Maybe there is more I will accept later. Who knows?
