Meditation and what works for you
Good Evening All! I'm trying to beat a problem with insomnia and have already slept 3 hours. For me that is great before midnight. But since I was awake, I thought I would ask a very simple question. In your meditation practice, what works for you? So often, it is easy to point out what doesn't work, and it can be self defeating. Since I'm getting back into the swing of things, I'm not as able to concentrate like I had at one point. It hit me all of a sudden that I could try the things that I did when first learning to meditate, such as guided meditations to get back into it. Within a few weeks, I found guided meditations to be less helpful.
This is just a post to help others with ideas that may help them. I personally liked Bodhipaksa's "Guided Meditations". I've tried others, but this was very basic. I remember talking to him online and feeling bad that his voice became in the way. He thought it was the greatest thing and it was time to try it on my own. What are things that have helped you to meditate, either meditating for 3 days to 30 years. You may do something that reminds someone of something that they used to do that could be helpful to them.
Bear Hugs to all,
