Meditation, Take Two

Ok! Now I am ready!

I realized pretty quickly that meditation was not innate for me. I need some help.

Luckily, hubby is a huge fan of the public library and has been known to make several trips there in the course of one week. I took advantage of his lunchtime stroll today and placed a TON of books on hold for him to pick up for me.

Among them:
the Joy Within - A Beginner's Guide to Meditation
Chakra Breathing Meditations - 3 Guided Practices to Unify Body, Breathing and Mind
Two books on Feng Shui

And Wikis for Information, Work and Collaboration, but that's another story.

What a haul! And that's not even counting the handful of CDs he picked up for himself. I am still waiting for the book that I want the most - Meditation in a New York Minute - that comes tomorrow.

I heart the library.

Hi M. just catching up with your posts. who knew gattica would be so relevant...not me that's for sure.

I've found meditation really helpful. I first started it when i realized that my reactions to stress and sadness were to bury myself in work, clean, and generally speed up so as not to think. it wasn't working.

it was hard to be still at first -- i actually started with some cheesy cd's then graduated to a couple of books. i have no idea if i do it right or not but i do now that taking the time to sit, even for five minutes in the morning, has helped me, and my husband to feel grounded.

still not for everyone...that said I hope you find a book or CD that works for you.

Now you will need to give us your review of each. Happy meditating!

Meditation is a little hard at first. Like the other commenter said, music is helpful, but once you get into it, it's pretty relaxing.
