Meditation Practices

Meditation is used to describe practices that self-regulate the body and mind, thereby affecting mental events...meditation is used as a stylized mental technique... repetitively practiced for the purpose of attaining a subjective experience.

There are dozens of specific styles of meditation practices; the word meditation may carry different meanings in different contexts.

Relaxation

You must learn and master, a full body relaxation exercise. If you don’t know one already it can be adapted to suit.  Here is one

Sit, or lie down, and relax. Starting with your feet, tense and relax them. Continue this with calves, thighs, hips, stomach, chest, arms, neck, and face until your whole body is deeply relaxed. Go over this a few times, making sure your muscles stay relaxed.
Note: deep physical relaxation is the key to bringing on the trance state, i.e. for this deep relaxation causes the trance state to begin. Once you are in the trance state, projection on the astral body can begin.

Contemplation

When you begin meditation, you will be plagued with thoughts from your surface mind, which acts as a huge memo pad. It carries messages, reminders, pressing thoughts, problems to solve, unresolved issues, etc. It is constantly busy, it never rests, thoughts, thoughts, thoughts, one after the other, all clamoring for attention.

Before you attempt to clear your mind, with the breath awareness exercise below, it is wise to deal with these surface thoughts by the act of contemplating them. Sit comfortably, and do the relaxation exercise and think, nothing more, just think! Search out the strongest thoughts in your mind and examine them, try to resolve and understand them.
Note the word; thinking. Contemplation does not involve clearing the mind, or visualization. It requires you to think, deeply and thoroughly, about something, to gain a deeper understanding of its nature and how it relates to you, and insight.

 

Breath awareness meditation

It will clear your mind and focus your awareness. Sit or lie down, close your eyes, do the relaxation exercise, and clear your mind. Breathe deep and slowly and focus on your breath entering and leaving your body. Feel it coming in and going out. Focus your whole attention on your lungs and the breathing process. This simple action is enough to occupy your surface mind. Firmly push intruding thoughts away, as they begin, before they can gather strength and distract you. Breath awareness occupies the surface mind and allows you to think on a much deeper level.

Surface thoughts

Sounds are very distracting, they generate surface thoughts. A car horn will generate: “Who’s that, what’s happening?” A door opening will generate: Who’s coming in or going out?” The surface mind is always very curious about what is happening around you. It wants to know all, and it wants to inform you of every little thing going on around you. It will pressure you to open your eyes, get up, and go find out what’s happening. Don’t allow this to happen. By learning to quash and ignore them, your power of concentration will grow.       

This is also good Jill! Once you get to better understanding and doing the meditations; the visualizations can be just a step above.

For a Spell Caster:

The mind is the most important tool. Therefore, it helps to practice mental exercises to develop your mind and its skills as much as possible. With a lack of stimulation, it’s easy to become bored, and bored minds tend to wander. When you are stuck waiting for a long time, practice this mental exercise.

Imagine yourself facing a door. Focus on the details, the material, the knob, anything else that catches your eye.

Silently say:
The Spirit cannot be caged;
Time has no roof and no floor;
The mind cannot be captured;

Walk free through that hidden door.

Visualize opening the door and stepping through with one foot. Keep the other foot firmly planted where you are. In this way, you can entertain yourself in the privacy in your own mind while remaining aware of what happens around you.
