Developing our meditations on the breath… today we will begin to use the power of our imagination in conjunction with the breath to aid concentration and focus.

Often with guided meditation people tend to jump into elaborate visualizations. Although this may be helpful to them it can also bring movement into the mind which does allow us to experience stillness on a deep level.

When training in meditation its essential to develop the ability to still the mind before jumping ahead to more complex practices and visualizations.

That is why today we will try this gentle, simple visualization to help calm and focus the mind.

Enjoy – and make the most of your Sunday – ‘the day of rest!’
