MEDITATION - The concept of meditation originated in the East, primarily in India, where formal techniques are taught and learnt. In the West this word seems to have a generic meaning, whereby it can almost mean anything. However there are several types of this practice. One is the technique of concentration, which can best described as focussing the mind on a particular value in a constant manner, with extreme intent. This can be illustrated by the chanting of monks, where a phrase or refrain is repeated for long periods of time. This technique appears to have been adopted by those who are usually in a monastic way of life, and who spend long hours in this practice. It does actually work by the mind being released from such control after a period of time, and then transcends itself to experience the transcendent. The same applies to extreme concentration techniques, like clearing the mind of thoughts, or staring at a candle. Then there is the technique of contemplation, which seems to be the most common technique in the West. This practice keeps the mind on the conscious thinking level, but at times there is an experience of the transcendent, but can be short-lived, as the conscious mind is so active, and is encouraged to stay with those thoughts. There are many variations to this type of mindfulness, and many different visualizations can be adopted, including and not limited to breathing techniques. The intent is for union with one’s source (the Transcendental Nature of Existence), and is highly recommended. See MEDITATION, YOGA, QI GONG, TAI CHI....from the Glossary at

Daily Channeled Guidance

April 28   Do you have trouble visualizing? You seem to have no trouble coming up with worst case scenarios. We would say you have a wonderful imagination. So, start small. Some direction. Take a small object. Something you can hold in your hand. A rock. A flower. A piece of jewelry. A bagel. Look at it intently. Stare holes in it. Concentrate. Close your eyes and imagine, see a vision of what you were just looking at. Didn't see it? Or, perhaps, the vision just lasted the whole of 5 seconds before it disappeared. Ah, do it again. Practice makes perfect.

Excerpt from the book Finding Your Soul in the Spirituality Maze:   "What are your beliefs about your dance with God? Does God lead, do you lead, is it you leading sometimes and God leading sometimes, or does no one lead? The unhappiest folks seem to be those who believe that no one leads (atheists and those who claim to be always victimized, for example). If you agree with Conversations With God, then your answer is that you lead, for as stated in those conversations many times (Walsch, 1996): "God supports your will and has no other will for you.""   Continued here - free read.
