Simple Principles of Meditation
Just quiet time and daydreaming are very simple forms of ‘like’ meditation. When you meditate, your intention and purpose are always positive. The two basic types of Meditation are Concrete/External or Abstract/Internal.
General guidelines for meditation:
Meditation is focusing the mind on one point. It has the effect of cleansing the mind, releasing clutter which leads to understanding your true nature, discovering the wisdom and tranquillity that lies within. During meditation the brain frequency moves from BETA into ALPHA – just being, and that warm fuzzy feeling from neuro-chemicals released; and then THETA – problem solving while relaxed and detached, quick learning and creativity.

When first beginning meditation there will always be some meditation that you can easily response to, and others that you find challenging. Why? Sharon’s theory is because each individual will find that certain senses in the beginning are more easily accessible.
How can you use your senses to help you in meditation?
If Visual is your preferred system you tend to see the world in pictures – uses words like – looks, see, picture – tend to talk fast.
If Auditory is your preferred system you tend to take more care with words – uses words like – hear, sounds, clicks, bell – tend to have more melodic voices – deeper more rhythmic breath.
If Kinaesthetic is your preferred system you tend to relate to feeling – uses words like – handle, grasp, touch, feel – tend to talk slower, breathe deeper.
Others – Touch: use an object as your focus eg. A worry stone or beads.
Some examples to try:
Tools that work well with meditation are flower essences, positive affirmations, a firm intention, energy work and more.
