I have used many techniques (very successfully) since coming here to this forum. Thank you to all those who have shared their personal techniques, what an amazing bunch of people you all are.
I thought it high time I share my most effective meditation techniques. This technique (for me) has always led to the most purest and most amazing insights.
My technique is in simply doing. Not sure you can even call it a technique.
Instead of imagining taking a walk, go take a walk and while your at it, let your mind roam free. In short just let your mind go where it will while doing tasks that require little to no input. Most of us can walk, wash dishes, sit in the garden or backyard, stare out a window, fold laundry, pet our pets, swing, go fishing and hundreds of other tasks a day without thought. So while you're at it let your mind go where it will.
Think of it as daydreaming if you will. Children do it easily, especially when they are bored. We all do it easily, especially when we are doing the most mundane chores and leisure activities.
When you find yourself staring, lost in thought, gently bring your focus to your thoughts, just enough to maintain some awareness.
For example; you find you have been staring at something for quite some time, say a tree or a picture. Stay dreamy but take a closer look. That tree or that picture or whatever it is was communicating something to you or you to it. What?
The point is and especially for those who have trouble imagining is that you don't have to. You can just do it.
Well, that's it in a nutshell.
