2010 experiment

Well the last meditation really worked, despite procrastinating and only getting to it in the evening. The basic message is that stilling the mind really does make a difference.
Its like a magical bond that forms within you, there are no bells and whistles nor is it that easy to notice. Its a little more subtle, more like a feeling of calm (albiet brief, in most cases) a kind of little inner buzz.
Even a short 1 minute stillness with intention can set you straight.
If you have the desire to extend this feeling and start setting a few more measurable to the magic, then why not start the 2010 experiment.

How it works:

  • Find a space you can be alone for 20 minutes
  • Light a candle
  • Breathe deeply, in for 4 counts, hold for 4 counts out for 4 counts, do this for 5 minutes
  • When you catch your mind wondering, just come back to the breathing and counting.
  • When you feel ready, allow your imagination to take you to a beautiful place, somewhere that makes you smile, a forest, a beach, a mountain, imagine it is December 2010.
  • Look around that place and notice its beauty
  • Notice what you are wearing, holding, drinking or eating
  • Imagine someone walking towards to you (you may know them or you may not)
  • Greet them and begin to tell them about your amazing year, 2010
  • Tell them all the things you have done, places you have visited and people you have met
  • Now show them pictures of the things you have done, describe them in detail
  • When you have finished, say good bye and return to your breathing
  • Breathe in for the count of 4, hold it for the count of 4, and out for the count of 4
  • Come back to the room and open your eyes slowly
What did you do in 2010, where were you, who did you meet?
Take those images that were shown to you and remember them every morning when you wake up. Do this for a month, then let it go!

That's it your done, the magic will unfold.
