I had a lot of resistance to meditating for years. Finally, I just made time to do it first thing in the morning. Now I really get upset if my schedule prevents me from including a meditation session every day. What’s do I get out of it? There’s the connection with my soul-self, the joining with God/Love and the peace in my heart. Oh and did I forget to mention the amazing insights that come to me and guide me through my day!April 3, 2013 at 1:33 pm #30321Kenneth VogtParticipant
I find it interesting that professing Christians often view meditation with suspicion. Yet King David wrote many beautiful psalms about his regular meditative practice and his meditations. The apostle Paul recommended meditating on the things we have learned. Jesus himself began his ministry with a 40 day meditation and continued to seek out solitude to meditate after that. The walking meditation above maps quite well to the contemplation that many saintly individuals have practiced and recommended. In short, they ought to be no barrier for any person of Judeo-Christian heritage to meditate.April 4, 2013 at 2:38 am #30465Kathy KrugerParticipant
Hi Kenneth, Frank and Marilyn – I also find it a little odd about the Christian suspicion about meditation. I would have thought that it works very well with the more focused spiritual practice of prayer. I have always found it to be very beneficial to be sense of calm, self and God, or universal way.
But anyway, I’ve been experimenting with all kinds of meditation practices and wrote about it on my blog this week. I would really like some feedback on the meditation videos I’ve done up for children – my theory is that our kids are so used to the visual medium they may respond to visual stimulus to calm and centre themselves. So if anyone would like to comment it would be most appreciated. I hope it is OK to post a couple of links – cheers…kathy:

There are apps for meditation now too…there’s ReWire, ConZentration, and Finger Labyrinths. They are really good alternatives to traditional meditation (sitting on a cushion) 🙂April 20, 2013 at 4:55 pm #34106Amanda ChristianParticipant
