Hi, my problems with meditation arise from sudden scepticism.. (Been raised no nonsense Protestant) lack of concentration, incessant thinking (monkey mind) .. I counter the first with a thought on science, research has proven the worth of meditation.. the other two with gentleness and the idea of pushing thoughts away with a feather… hope this helps, good luck!
Making/taking time for me is my challenge. I know it is valuable and yet I do not always follow through on my commitment to myself. I am working on seeing my promise to myself with the same value as a promise to someone I care for, which would never be cast aside.
Biggest struggle: Responding to the pictures that pop into my mind. Responding by analyzing their meaning or following them to see more.
My practice has taught me to see them and accept them without further thought. Don’t ignore them, just accept that they are there and keep meditating.

Well, i struggle with being focus on my meditation time. But the best way to maintain focus is by finding a quite place and taking your time meditating alone.
- What kind of meditation do you practice.
- Do you have a meditation guide that you recommend or a particular teacher that you feel is very helpful for a beginner?
- When’s your favorite time of day to meditate?
- What is the best way and when is the best time to meditate
- Do you find guided or unguided meditation helps to clear your mind more?
- Is there a certain position you find that works better? It seems harder to focus when I try to sit super straight.
- Do you prefer guided mediations or just calming sounds? Do you have any tips to make master meditation?
- Can you meditate properly laying down?
- How do you position yourself when you meditate? Do you sit, lie down, or stand?
- What do you visualise when meditating??
