hello gothicmama
i will be around for support and sharing if you want to start something.. but in more of a back seat position cos I am doing other work elsewhere now and want to devote more of my energy there. Will not be online much until March.

happy new year and blessings to you. X

Whne you meditate do you use a candle to help you . I usuall just imagine a candle or a calm lake but I am thinking of trying to meditate usingteh flame from a candle to quiten my mind

I am thinking about doing a course on meditation but have no idea where to look. Happy New Year to my spiritual home sisters.

Have had a great holiday and come back with a tan and a cold .

I have a blue light a water fountain and a bubble machine in my bedroom, thats what i use

Papillon Sun 09-Jan-05 12:02:16

glitterfairy, welcome home egyptian goddess. Did the red sea speak and tell you good stories?

fairyfly, what is a bubble machine?

fairyfly Sun 09-Jan-05 12:05:47

mmm suppose i didn't mean a bubble machine as they are things that blow bubbles everywhere. Its a tall glass cylinder full of water, air pushes bubbles through it and they light up.

do you mean a \link{ http://inventors.about.com/library/weekly/aa092297.htm\lava lamp}

I mediate mostly in bed before going to bed. Its the quietest place and I can do bodywork at the same time. I try and step onto the collective unconcious, the matrix, spiderweb of life... I have a visualisation I am waiting until i get to NZ to do... will put it in a dictaphone i think.

I am checking out the tsunami thread too sophable and drawn in for abit and being pulled by the MN current

nothing more to add about mediatation ftm

glitterfairy Sun 09-Jan-05 15:48:07

Paps what do you mean??? "I mediate mostly in bed before going to bed. Its the quietest place and I can do bodywork at the same time." bodywork?

Ok My mind is a sewer and Beets you looked at a picture of a guru. I would laugh! I am thinking goodness gracious me at this very moment.

I think I would be useless at this as my mind works overtime the moment things are quiet.

Heathcliffscathy Sun 09-Jan-05 15:59:05

ahh glitter, that's the whole big point, that's me to a tee, racing mind, prone to spirals of anxiety and that's why meditation can be so good...i just concentrate on my breath and whenever my mind goes walkabout i notice it, and without condemning go back to focussing on breath

glitterfairy Sun 09-Jan-05 16:02:25

Yes Paps once posted a link which said that some types of meditation you could do by concentrating on one thing. So I did very successfuly concentrate on a peacocks feather in my mind and looked at all the colours and the texture and everything. I spent a peaceful half hour and felt much better. Every time I try to think of nothing at all it is awful and my mind goes hyper! That is why I think I need a coach! (Certainly not some old hippy guru though apart from paps)

Papillon Sun 09-Jan-05 16:12:06

you know that tantric mediation is very beneficial supposedly feeling energy (wot I perceive as God I guess) matter and spirit. I was actually talking to dh about it this morning. So you never know my luck. Have a magic book on the tree of estasy too.

Anyways, it is not all that sordid really and I think I can follow on finally as I have read a book which speaks to me about this now.

So no discussions with the Red Sea then?

I like to do the Alexander Technique when in bed. And cranial work then abit of snoring!

glitterfairy Sun 09-Jan-05 16:20:07

OK was only teasing paps. We went to the Red Sea at midnight English time on New Years Eve and drank champagne. It was very relaxing. THe red sea doesnt talk you know Paps. Dd went diving and got quite into it also water skiing and wake boarding and para sailing! She would be a natural to do meditation with. It is her birthday tomorrow and I have brought her a sick I love you Daughter card which she will love!
