Many of us meditate to help process energy, and I would love to hear how/when/why you practice meditation? I know no one else who meditates, and I have no formal training (religious or otherwise); I am interested in trying new things.
Do you guys mind sharing who you talk or pray to (is it religion/spiritual affiliated or just something you do for yourself by yourself), how you meditate (yoga, seated, alone, in a special place, with oils or incenses), and what you do when you meditate (pray, physically move energy around, listen, breathing patterns).
Thanks for sharing!
I meditate using guided yoga (I particularly like Rodney Yee), which I do in the dark in the evening before bed in my bedroom. I go through the motions, eyes usually closed, and allow the energy in my body to move freely. I can tell when my energy is off because I cannot easily follow the motions (e.g. I fall over or shake). Having my eyes closed allows me to focus on listening to my body and manipulating it through conscious thought -it centers me, for say. This is entirely something for myself by myself; I wish I had the feeling of a divinity involved, but I never felt connected with anyone except my deceased grandmother -and never in meditation.
When my energy is very bad, I follow a guided chakra cleansing deep mediation that I found on YouTube. I lie on my back on a yoga mat, eyes closed, and follow the breathing motions while visualizing the energy move around me. Sometimes, if very bad, I get physically upset, like shaking slightly.
