I've been trying to push myself lately to meditate every day, but I just can't. It's kind of boring to me. However, if the stress continues to have the impact it has now on me, I'll have to give it a try again.

Hi Lovies! :hug: And a big :welcome: to you, Max!

I have found meditation to be one of the most transforming experiences and make a point to set aside time each day to practice. Our minds are constantly active, always jumping from thought to thought, emotion to emotion. Connecting to the nonlocal intelligence, the universal soul that lies within us and is part of us all, requires finding a way past the fog of distracting thoughts that typically hide it from us. We cannot fight our way through that barrier any more than we can fight out way through a real fog. If you want to see across the street on a foggy day, nothing you can do physically will help. You must wait, calmly and patiently, for the fog to lift on its own. Every once in a while, a clear patch will emerge, and you can glimpse what lies ahead. The same is true of thoughts. If we are quiet, we encounter moments of pure silence, or "gaps" and in these gaps we can glimpse the deeper levels of the soul. Each glimpse increases our understanding, and eventually our consciousness becomes expanded.:sun:

The purpose of meditation is to stop thinking for a time, wait for the fog to thin, and glimpse the spirit within. Controlling the flood of thoughts is very difficult for most people and beginners can become very frustrated...But frustration is just another thought, another emotion that gets in the way. The goal is to release all thoughts, quietly and passively. Once you begin to practice it regularly it becomes easier and easier and will start you on the road to transforming your life and creating synchronicities and the miracles you desire. :thumbsup:

It is because I am personally such an huge advocate of meditation that I am deeply grateful that PATHS has created the new Quantum Meditation. :thanks: This will undoubtedly be a magnificent help to those who wish to easily and effortlessly experience deep meditation.:yahoo: :sun:

Pamela,

Thank you very much for the warm welcome and your explanation.

As I am just beginning to dive into meditation, do you know some website that you can recommend, with easy and beginner instructions on meditation?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Max, You are most welcome!

I have been meditating seriously for about 3 years and I think this video is one of the best instructions for beginners found on the net. This is the first of five parts, and if it resonates with you, you can find the rest over on the right side of the page. Here's the link:

YouTube - How to meditate (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0rSmxsVHPE)

In this one, it is stated that mantras (vibrational sounds of nature, for example, "so-hum"..."so" being thought or verbalized on the intake of a breath and "hum" on the outake) should not be used, but as you progress and if you like the idea, I see no reason why not. The same is true for sutras which are Sanskrit mantras that have meaning. An example of a sutra would be "Aham Brahmasmi" (ah-HUM bra-MAHS-mee..."the core of my being is the ultimate reality, the root and ground of the universe, the source of all that exists"). There are many others that have been used successfully for centuries and while they may sound foreign, the soul will understand the meaning even if you do not. However, as a beginner, I would put the mantras and sutras on the back burner until you feel nice and comfortable with simple meditation!:thumbsup:

I find that concentrating on my breathing is the easiest way to get into that place of "no thought" and Aaron Murakami (Hi Aaron!:hug: ) shared his breathing exercises for cultivating Qi here with us a couple of years back that I think you will enjoy. Here's the link:

http://www.energeticforum.com/health-fitness-nutrition/462-art-breathing-cultivating-qi.html

Personally, I have found much of the info I needed about meditation from books more than I have from perusing the net and if you are interested, I will be more than happy to direct you to some of my favorite authors that discuss it. But for now, you might want to simply look to these videos and Aaron's thread on breathing so you don't get overloaded with to much information. :eek: As with anything else, meditation should be effortless and easy as well as enjoyable...I also believe that many people have their own method that works for them and ALL are valid, so there is no need to get all caught up with specific "rules". Let me know how you feel about the videos, okay Max? And if you want any more info at any point, I will be more than happy to share! :thumbsup: In the meantime, I wish you much fun and serenity as you "dive in" to this wonderful practiceof meditation! :sun:
