Imagine how life would be different if you just completely let go. Surrender your ego. Let go of your negative thoughts, worrisome plans, and unrealistic expectations. Imagine how much more peaceful things would become. Life would be so much simpler. Nicole Addison
Thoughts and words form your mental images. And since we become what we picture be sure your thoughts and words express prosperity and blessing rather than poverty and defeat. Norman Vincent Peale
Using Visualization in Meditation
When you visualize, you generate power.
In meditation, we focus the mind but relax the body, which creates great conditions for using powerful visualization. You may realize that visualization at first is more useful for relaxing from meditation. When the mind is empty and the body relaxed, you will be able to enjoy the visualization of images and ideas. Meditation and visualization have the power of treatment. Visualization is just one of the ways in which you can use your mind for a better state of the body.
This is a simple example of relaxation through meditation: when you are breathing, relax, and when you are breathing, laugh. Repeat this as long as you want and visualize your body to relax. You will soon notice positive body changes.
You can use visualization for meditation, astral travel, sending energy into objects and many other things. These will all be covered in the future. So, how do I start?
Here’s a basic exercise for you to practice. It’s very simple and many of you will probably be able to pick it up easily if you’ve already done visualization techniques!
1. You’ll need a very quiet area where you’ll be comfortable. Even lying in bed and putting white noise in your headphones is useful. Get rid of all distractions, put your phone on silent etc.
2. Close your eyes and empty your mind. Your mind might feel like a blank sheet of paper, and you’re going to create something in there.
3. Picture an apple, any old apple. Zoom in and see its shape, it’s color. Does it have leaves, more than one color? Look at every tiny detail of the apple you’ve created.
4. Next, take a knife and cut this apple in half. Focus on the detail inside: the color, how many seeds there are etc. The more detail, the better.
5. Now you use your senses. What the apple feels like, smells like. Bite into it and taste it. You’re using visualization to not only see the apple but understand everything about it.
From this, you’re able to visualize and interact with objects in your mind. Practice often with anything you like!
If you ask 10 people how to meditate, you will probably receive 10 different answers. The truth is very simple: there is not only one unique way of meditation. Any way that suits you is the right way. Try some of these ways of meditation and you’ll soon discover which one suits you best.
Do not be discouraged if you become distracted often; meditation is not something that comes naturally: it has to be practiced. The present moment is hard to hang on to because it requires not hanging on to anything. The present moment is always slipping by, and it will take practice to teach your mind to acknowledge and dismiss each moment rather than trying to linger. Try aiming for one minute of focused meditation, and increase the time little by little as your concentration improves.
Eventually, you’ll be able to meditate in noisy places, with your eyes open, using focus tools like candles or crystals, you can start employing visualization or mantras if you want; the sky is the limit. But before you can do any of that, you have to be able to concentrate. Simple quiet, eyes-closed meditation that focuses on the breath is a good way to get you there.
