    Check out self hypnosis. The beginning steps at least help me into a meditative state.

    If you are a beginner practice a good breathing technique and start with the simple candle meditation. We have a few threads on this.

    The system I use gives silently observing your thoughts without getting involved in them as the first technique.

    It is very hard for a beginner to not let thoughts interfere, as every time a beginner starts to meditate the thought interrupts, the best way to start is to learn to breathe properly and calmly.

    Cool thanks

    Thank you all very much, this information is very helpful. I forget that instead of trying to find bells and whistles i should focus on the basics.

    Breathing is key: Equal counts. So maybe start with 2 seconds, breathe in; 2 seconds, hold; 2 seconds, breathe out; 2 seconds, hold.

    Holding the breath without air in the lungs for an equal amount of time is just as important. Then increase time after a couple of weeks: 4/4/4/4 - 8/8/8/8 -16/16/16/16 -and so on. Obviously, the longer the count the more controlled the breath will have to be whilst breathing out and in.

    Certainly once the breath can be held with no air in the lungs for a prolonged period of time, the rush and oscillation of oxygen to the brain will bring about a deepened state of meditation. And practical benefits do include holding one's breath for several minutes under water and not needing to breathe to function for up to the time one becomes accustomed to -which can be useful when having to deal with a fire, for example.

    Hey, you're welcome, KatKinney.

    It's nice to visit a place where I'm appreciated. I think I'll take refuge here for a little while.
