Guided Visualization

If you are completely new to meditation, this is a good place to start.  The general format is that you sit or lie down in a comfortable and quiet place, close your eyes, listen to a guide give verbal instruction (live or recorded), and use your mind’s eye to imagine whatever the verbal guidance is describing to you.  This works several parts of your brain, which generally takes up enough mental bandwidth that you have less mental energy to spend on other random thoughts and worries.  It is a good beginning training to strengthen and develop your powers of visualization and your ability to notice what is happening in your internal experience (thoughts, feelings, emotions, sensations).

Focusing on the Breath

Almost all forms of meditation include some guidance on how to relate to your breath within the context of that style of meditation.  One basic beginning meditation is to count breaths up to nine, and then start over at one.  Another basic meditation is just to observe the breath without trying to do anything to change it.  More soon in this section.

Heart Centered Meditation

I personally feel that heart-centered meditation is the fast track to raising consciousness, but it requires some skill with Vipassana-style focus on body sensations and some skill with basic mindfulness practices in order to be aware of sensations, thoughts, and emotions that arise as you rest into your heart center.  Most cultures around the world have some sort of practice of heart-centered meditation.  Here are some modern trainings and teachers:

Mindfulness Meditation

Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle prefers not to use the word “mindfulness” for the meditation he teaches because it is all about relaxing the thinking mind and resting into awareness of the present moment of Now.  Still, he belongs in this category.

Moving Meditation

Moving meditation is a way of getting out of the mind and into the body.  Of course the mind has to operate the body, but the mind is so focused on both moving the body and on noticing the sensations that arise while moving the body that there is much less mental bandwidth available for extraneous thoughts or worries.  The form of moving meditation most people are familiar with is Yoga, and there are many schools of Yoga, and I won’t try to list them all here.

Qigong is the foundation for T’ai Chi, and T’ai Chi is the foundation of all martial arts, and all of those practices are various styles of moving meditation, and links to a few good teachers are provided on my page on Energy Mastery.

Listed below are some more modern forms of moving meditation.

Binaural Beats Meditation

This must be listened to with headphones to get the full effect.  There are different beats going into your left and right hemispheres, and if you are using speakers, the beats meant for the separate hemispheres of your brain are being heard by both sides, negating the effect.  The music is still nice to meditate to, but will not take you to the desired state nearly as easily.

Mass Meditations for Healing the Planet

It has been scientifically proven that a large number of people meditating at the same time has a measurable effect in the world.  One repeated study found that Chicago crime rates dropped while mass meditations were in progress in that area.  I will dig up more studies when I have time, and if you know of any, please send me a link.
