Mediate, Part 1

March 25th, 2008

Next on my “Road to Oprah” list is “meditate.”

 

I’ve dabbled in this before, and I can say I felt some benefit.

But I didn’t stick to it.

Surprised?

(Have you read this website?)

 

So my plan is to start with 5 minutes of meditation a day. For the first week, I will do it in the morning, then try it at night to see which works better. Over the next 30 days, I’ll progress to 10 minutes a day.

 

As for my meditation method, I will begin by sitting in the “om” position and also saying the word “om,” because I like how it feels in my chest. It’s a healing word, don’t you think? There’s something positive about how it resonates.

 

I’ll let you know how it goes.

 

I’m going to determine my meditation success on three factors:

 

1 — Did it make me yell less?

2 — Did it make me worry less?

3 — Did it make me calmer in general?

 

We’ll see.

Om is good, but doesn’t it get boring? I hardly get time for meditation (or is that an excuse?) but I try imagining a cleansing violet flame for the negative stuff, or I’ve seen suggested a golden glow that you imagine infusing your body and clearing out your thoughts and just making you feel light and glowing….or something to that affect!
More power to you if you’re doing any meditation at all! Keep us posted.

Try centering prayer. Really. Its benefits for me are subtle but so monumental.

Read CENTERING PRAYER AND INNER AWAKENING by Cynthia Bourgeault.

Seriously. I think you’ll LOVE this book!
