[Jenine] 3:20 pm: music makes it a little easier for me
[Inkky] 3:20 pm: here is a site I just found lol that has alot of different links for meditations http://www.meditations.com/
[Silver Rose] 3:21 pm: focusing on the beat of the music and my breathing helps me
[misstay71] 3:21 pm: mm polar
 3:22 pm: in the beginning if you are able to maintain for a minute or two you are doing well
[Silver Rose] 3:22 pm: Heya polarwolf
 3:22 pm: mm polar
[polarwolf] 3:22 pm: mm all
[Red_Hot] 3:22 pm: hi polar
[polarwolf] 3:22 pm: hello all
[sea willow] 3:22 pm: How can you stop from falling asleep. I myself can not even reach that state before I go to sleep
[Inkky] 3:22 pm: Hiya polar ((hugs))
[sea willow] 3:22 pm: MM Polorwolf
[polarwolf] 3:22 pm: hugs inkky
 3:22 pm: are you lying in bed to meditate?
[Inkky] 3:22 pm: seawillow when do you meditate?
[polarwolf] 3:22 pm: hello sea willow
[Jenine] 3:22 pm: I want to dedicate time at night to meditate but I'm just too tired when I get home from work
[sea willow] 3:23 pm: Usually at night when it is quiet. Some times durning the day when and if everyone is gone. I relax and brethe great. I just fall asleep and I try.
 3:23 pm: this is going to sound like a silly question...but when you do you shower?
[Jenine] 3:24 pm: I sometimes take a shower in the morning and sometimes before I go to bed
[Inkky] 3:24 pm: I personally find that if i try to meditate at night time after reading and doing some work that i need to do for this site I fall alseep so I have designated time during the day to meditate
 3:24 pm: maybe this would be a good time to meditate...with the element of water running over you...just a thought
[sea willow] 3:25 pm: I have tryed a alarm clock to wake me within 10 mins. But I am so afraid I reach the state of mind that the alarm is going to pull me from what I need to be at
[Jenine] 3:25 pm: So try to meditate in the shower? That might work. The shower does relax me
[polarwolf] 3:25 pm: inkky and chi i find that when i do my meditations i snore even though i am sitting up and doing my medations at dusk
[sea willow] 3:26 pm: I like your idea chiblue
 3:26 pm: I often do, Jenine it is a good experience
[sea willow] 3:26 pm: That would keep me awake. lol
[Jenine] 3:26 pm: I could try that first thing in the morning
[Jenine] 3:26 pm: Now I just have to tell the cats I need to meditate before I feed them. lol
[Inkky] 3:27 pm: polar have you tried a guided meditation????? as then you have a voice to tune into to stay awake
[Silver Rose] 3:27 pm: Me too think if I did it at the end off the day I would just nod off because I am that tired
[misstay71] 3:27 pm: i find i meditate better at night
[polarwolf] 3:27 pm: yes
[sea willow] 3:27 pm: Can you meditate looking at a candle. Does closing your eyes the only way to reach the meditaion state? It would be hard to imagine the pentagram or even the tree exercize
[Inkky] 3:27 pm: Jenine have you tried to meditate with the cats purring on your lap as purring cats have a calming effect on people and help in the meditation process
[sea willow] 3:28 pm: Where do I find a site for guided meditation?
[Inkky] 3:28 pm: Yes you can seawillow well i think you can anyways lol if you stare at the flame and think aboutit you will find that you will get into a meditative state
[Jenine] 3:28 pm: I had one cat who would settle in my lap but she passed away last year. The other two demand my attention
 3:28 pm: yes, many people do meditate by staring at a candle flame...you will find yourself drifting into yourself
[Jenine] 3:28 pm: One even paws me, claws out sometimes, to get my attention
[sea willow] 3:28 pm: I am up for ANYTHING!
[Inkky] 3:29 pm: http://www.meditations.com/
there is one i just found I dont know if and what guided ones it has but check it out and you might find something that helps out
[Inkky] 3:29 pm: you can also do a google search for free guided meditations and see what you get
[Jenine] 3:29 pm: I'll check out that site and try the staring at the candle also
[misstay71] 3:29 pm: mm lady

[polarwolf] 3:31 pm: for guided meditations
[sea willow] 3:32 pm: ew ew ew I found one http://www.myinnerworld.com/index.html?j=tree
[LadyLucinda] 3:32 pm: I am new to meditating about a specific thing. I used to do a meditation where you just blank your mind completely and wait to see a blue swirly thing. That's it. I got up to about an hour, but meditating in a specific way seems much harder.
 3:32 pm: thank you polar
[Inkky] 3:32 pm: thank you for sharing polar
i had some great sites lol but they are on the computer still in cali LOL
[polarwolf] 3:32 pm: u all are very welcome

 3:32 pm: thank you too, sea willow
[LadyLucinda] 3:33 pm: Thanks for the meditations.
 3:33 pm: what makes it harder, Lady?
[LadyLucinda] 3:33 pm: I have a question
[sea willow] 3:33 pm: You are very welcome. I am so excited now. Can not wait to try this. YEAAAA
 3:34 pm: ok, Lady..do go ahead
[LadyLucinda] 3:34 pm: Where does the line between self hypnosis and meditation end
[Inkky] 3:34 pm: now does anyone use any tools like crystals or incense or oil burners or anything like that when you meditate?
[sea willow] 3:34 pm: wow Lady that is a good one to ask
[sea willow] 3:34 pm: I use insense
[LadyLucinda] 3:34 pm: I don't use anything and rarely open my eyes.
[polarwolf] 3:34 pm: i use sandelwood stick incense
[Red_Hot] 3:35 pm: is incense the smelly sticks you burn???
[Jenine] 3:35 pm: I haven't used anything yet but would like to use some aromatherapy oils
 3:35 pm: yes, Lisa
[sea willow] 3:35 pm: lol Yes Red
[Red_Hot] 3:35 pm: lol... ok
[Inkky] 3:35 pm: meditation in my eyes is where your open up your sub conscious being and connect to the divine and hypnosis to me is when you delve into the sub conscious but dont connect with the divine
[Red_Hot] 3:35 pm: i use them... lmao
[LadyLucinda] 3:36 pm: I am taking Tarot classes and they give meditations. Is it better to try them all, or if you find one that really works stick to it? Great answer Thkky
 3:36 pm: I love pomegrante oil infusing...or sandelwood and vanilla oils
[Jenine] 3:36 pm: Mmmm the vanilla sounds good
 3:37 pm: once you have mastered one...it is nice to change up but not necessary
[Inkky] 3:37 pm: I personally would stick to one that you find work for you
and then if you wish at a later date try another one
[Alba Creag] 3:37 pm: I somtimes use oeum incence very nice and relaxing
[Alba Creag] 3:37 pm: *opeum
[LadyLucinda] 3:37 pm: I tried the pentagram one and I am dyslexic and have spatial relation problems and it seemed almost impossible.
[LadyLucinda] 3:37 pm: I love sandalwood and frankincense
[Inkky] 3:38 pm: I love love love wait for it lmao Dragon's Blood LOL

[sea willow] 3:42 pm: They used to have oils at Biglots
[Inkky] 3:42 pm: The oils at Walmart are good here for your oil burner as you have to add the oil to water
[Jenine] 3:43 pm: I guess as long as you are using it for scents only it would be ok
[EWWlex362c] 3:43 pm: Add water to the oils?

[sea willow] 3:43 pm: That is what I have Inkky. Right now I have eucliptis ( Do not know how to spell that word) LOL

[hazeleyes] 4:06 pm: yup
[hazeleyes] 4:06 pm: are there a few good sites for meditation in general that yall have found
 4:06 pm: meditation helps you to quiet your mind and to be able to better focus your intent and will in my opinion
[calandula] 4:07 pm: yes i cant my mind wondering do you have to be mind clear
[EWWlex362c] 4:07 pm: Should you meditate prior to, during, or otherwise to get the most benefit?
 4:07 pm: helps you to reach that inner aspect of you that can better cope with meeting and receiving messages from the divine
[Inkky] 4:07 pm: here ya go hazel http://www.myinnerworld.com/index.html?j=tree http://members.tripod.com/~Synergy_2/meds/meditate.html http://www.meditations.com/related/chak ... oohUK7ClCk
[sea willow] 4:07 pm: Does it matter what insense and oils you use in different purposes Meaning to reach a different meditative state. Like astral P.
[Inkky] 4:07 pm: there are 3 that have been posted today in the chat
 4:08 pm: not in my opinon, sea willow...something relaxing..I also like lavender
[sea willow] 4:08 pm: Great. TY
[Inkky] 4:08 pm: there are however specific incenses that will add in astral travel and so on and same as crystals
[misstay71] 4:08 pm: i can't seem to do the astral p
 4:09 pm: you do need to be free of the mundane things of life to reach meditiative state, even if it returns to your mind, you need to push it out
[sea willow] 4:09 pm: How do you meditate to reach themessages from the divine?
[Inkky] 4:09 pm: ok can I ask everyone without offending what is it that interests people in astral travel?
[sea willow] 4:09 pm: Me eaither Missy
[sea willow] 4:09 pm: Miistay OPPPS My spelling is off today
[EWWlex362c] 4:10 pm: Planet Mars....I've always wanted to go.
[misstay71] 4:10 pm: it's ok sea willow
[misstay71] 4:10 pm: it was just in one of the lessons i did inkky
[sea willow] 4:10 pm: *smile* Thanks. Did not mean to offend
 4:10 pm: sea willow, by opening your mind during meditation, you are able to receive messages from the divine, your spirit guides and others
[misstay71] 4:10 pm: you didn't no prob
[sea willow] 4:11 pm: WOW. I am sooooo Confused now
[Icy_Mimi] 4:11 pm: is it true you can get hurt when doing astral traveling?
[EWWlex362c] 4:11 pm: Is there a difference between a deep meditative state and out of body experiences, such as riding the hedge?
[sea willow] 4:11 pm: Are there different states of meditation?
 4:11 pm: it does take practice and patience to learn to meditate to this level...but a bit at a time and you will soon be ther
 4:11 pm: yes sea willow there are
[Inkky] 4:12 pm: you can always ask before you meditate to be open to recieve messages from the divine and also if astral travel is what you wish for you can always ask for guidence for that also
[sea willow] 4:12 pm: Oh my. I am in level 3. Maybe that is why I am confused
[misstay71] 4:12 pm: is there a reason we do astral p ?
[sea willow] 4:12 pm: I have not reached that yet
 4:12 pm: we all began in the same spot, sea willow...
[EWWlex362c] 4:12 pm: Yeah...why do astral plane?
[sea willow] 4:13 pm: *Bummer* Grrrr I want to learn to fast and I gotta sloooow my bootie down
 4:13 pm: yes, that is exactly it, sea willow
[misstay71] 4:13 pm: yes don't get to ahead of your self sea
[Inkky] 4:13 pm: one thing we all have to remember is that is took us all our lives to gain the knowledge we have and to get to deep meditative state or even a light meditative state it also takes time and we all have to give ourselves the time to learn all of this as we didnt learn how to walk and talk and feed ourselves meditation is the same way
[sea willow] 4:13 pm: ok ok ok But I can be curious. LOLLOL
 4:14 pm: absolutely
[misstay71] 4:14 pm: is there a reason why we do astral p ?
[sea willow] 4:14 pm: Also trty not to get mad at yourself when you can not do it. Slow down relax and we will get there
[Inkky] 4:15 pm: yes so that our higher selves can see the other planes and also assist people in a time of need
[sea willow] 4:15 pm: I tryed to Astral p several times. I managed to see myself raise up and it felt wonderfulllll but something pulled me back and I have not been able to do that again!
[sea willow] 4:16 pm: I think it was luck .
[EWWlex362c] 4:16 pm: I'm afraid of heights, so I don't think I would like it.
[sea willow] 4:16 pm: That was YEARSSS ago.
 4:16 pm: things very much happen as we can handle them...so be patient
 4:16 pm: I don't like the feeling of astral projection
[misstay71] 4:17 pm: i gave up trying to do it because i couldn't get the hang of it
[EWWlex362c] 4:17 pm: I like to have both my feet securely on the ground!
[sea willow] 4:17 pm: Each thing we do we get braver and happier. I know I do. I am proud of myself. BUT I asl realize that I have to stand fast and make myself do things when I need to.
[misstay71] 4:17 pm: me too
 4:17 pm: it still happens occassionally, but I do not try
[Inkky] 4:18 pm: and people have to remember that most of the astral travel people do is when they ARE NOT TRYING to do so
[EWWlex362c] 4:18 pm: No broom ridin' for this girl!
[sea willow] 4:18 pm: LOL LOL EWWW

[Inkky] 4:28 pm: so are we happy to end the meditation chat or are there other questions ya'll have?
[Dethas] 4:28 pm: erm, I just got here lol
[EWWlex362c] 4:29 pm: Is there a difference between deep meditative states and out of body experiences?
[Inkky] 4:29 pm: lol sorry dethas
[Dethas] 4:29 pm: in my experience EWW - definitely
[Dethas] 4:29 pm: no problem inks
[EWWlex362c] 4:29 pm: mm Alba--welcome back!
[Dethas] 4:29 pm: hi creag
[Inkky] 4:29 pm: wb Creag
[misstay71] 4:29 pm: wb creag
[Alba Creag] 4:29 pm: ello a back
[EWWlex362c] 4:30 pm: What do you think the difference is?
[Icy_Mimi] 4:30 pm: wb creag
[Dethas] 4:30 pm: out of body experiences, are not meditative states...
[Alba Creag] 4:30 pm: ty
[Dethas] 4:30 pm: they are completely different
[Inkky] 4:30 pm: to me an out of body experience is not connecting to the divine but meditative states are but this is just my opinion
[Dethas] 4:30 pm: in my experience
[EWWlex362c] 4:30 pm: In what way?
[Dethas] 4:31 pm: there we go - inks has it
[EWWlex362c] 4:31 pm: Hmmm......I shall have to ponder this.
[Alba Creag] 4:31 pm: Is journying a meditative state as I meditate before journeying ?
[Dethas] 4:32 pm: journeying comes from a trance state rather than a meditative state as I understand it
[Dethas] 4:32 pm: the two are linked but...different lol
[EWWlex362c] 4:32 pm: Hmmm....more to ponder
[Inkky] 4:32 pm: well many people can have an out of body experience without getting into a meditative state hun and and out of body experience is like astral travel where as meditation is not astral travel cause you are using your mind and not your spirit self
[Alba Creag] 4:32 pm: I understand I usualy meditate to relax before Journing
[Dethas] 4:33 pm: meditation is a journey inwards.... journeying is reaching outwards to the otherworlds
[EWWlex362c] 4:33 pm: I don't know, I get some pretty powerful feelings when I meditate!
[EWWlex362c] 4:33 pm: You remember when I first tried that tree meditation!
[Inkky] 4:34 pm: I get alot of powerful feelings when i am meditating but I know I have not left my body to get those feelings
[Dethas] 4:34 pm: but EWW - those feelings are from within
[EWWlex362c] 4:34 pm: Perhaps I am ultra sensitive. It can really be a wild ride sometimes.
[sea willow] 4:35 pm: Ok I am Back. Gotta get caught up so I will be here reading
[misstay71] 4:35 pm: wb sea
[EWWlex362c] 4:35 pm: Not unpleasant....just like.....WOW
[Dethas] 4:35 pm: I agree it can be a wild ride
[Inkky] 4:35 pm: I can get powerful feelings in just doing mundane sorts of things like dejavu but i am not meditating nor out of bodying there either.....and please dont get me wrong i am not saying that these feelings mean nothing just i know that I can experience them also while doing neither of the topics we are discussing
[EWWlex362c] 4:35 pm: OK
[Inkky] 4:36 pm: i hope that made sense lol and like i said these are just my opinions
[EWWlex362c] 4:36 pm: Some of it does. We learn as we go though, right?
[Dethas] 4:36 pm: same here - opinions only
[Dethas] 4:37 pm: well, opinions and experiences
[Inkky] 4:37 pm: yes we do learn as we grow
[Icy_Mimi] 4:37 pm: well was nice talking with you all but i gotta head out, take care everyone hope to chat again soon

[misstay71] 4:37 pm: mp and bb mimi
[Alba Creag] 4:37 pm: One thing I have done is focus on me sitting on a rock which is focusing on me sitting on a rock and so on and I can get really deep within myself

[sea willow] 4:39 pm: BB Innky
[sea willow] 4:39 pm: ICY
[Alba Creag] 4:39 pm: I can only do it for a short time as its hard to do but and I feel tired after dooing it
[Inkky] 4:39 pm: I also find sitting up against a tree helps me out also as I connect to the nature spirits when i do so
[sea willow] 4:39 pm: arghhhhh I can not type and read at the same time
[Inkky] 4:39 pm: lol
[misstay71] 4:39 pm: lol
[EWWlex362c] 4:39 pm: lol
[Inkky] 4:39 pm: Creag do you ground yourself when you do this?
[Inkky] 4:40 pm: I find sometimes i need to ground myself before i commune with nature spirits as they do drain me and I feel very dizzy and disorientated if i dont ground before i start and after i have finished and always have something to eat and drink with you when you do this
[sea willow] 4:41 pm: Got a question. Can you reach the meditative state within seconds and a min or so. Is it called grounding?
[Alba Creag] 4:41 pm: yes I ground and center and also go for a shower after which is my main place I can relax in I can send hours in a shower ( not that I am that smelly Lol)
[Inkky] 4:41 pm: grounding is when you release the excess energies you have in your body
[Alba Creag] 4:42 pm: I also visulise me clensing uin a shower and all the bad energies are washed away ( if that makes sence )
[Red_Hot] 4:42 pm: ok im finally back... lmao
[Red_Hot] 4:42 pm: grrr i hate my phone... lmao
[Dethas] 4:42 pm: well folks, look slike I missed the main chat, so I'll head off and hope to see you all soon
[Dethas] 4:42 pm: take care everyone
[EWWlex362c] 4:42 pm: That's what I was told to do when cleansing crystals
[Inkky] 4:42 pm: for me i ground by placing my hands and knees on the ground and visualize the excess energies going into the earth so the nature can do what she needs to do with it
[Alba Creag] 4:42 pm: talk again soon dethas
[EWWlex362c] 4:42 pm: BB Dethas
[Alba Creag] 4:42 pm: M

[Inkky] 4:55 pm: so do we have any more meditation questions or just questions in general?
[EWWlex362c] 4:55 pm: Do you have to get really close to the mirror?
[Vellum] 4:55 pm: I haven't heard of using Mirrors for meditation, but it may be conected to scrying
[Vellum] 4:55 pm: which is a divination teckneek
[Alba Creag] 4:55 pm: I was too close to it
[misstay71] 4:55 pm: is there a lesson to teach you scrying ?
[EWWlex362c] 4:56 pm: Didn't scrying get mentioned in one of the first lessons for wicca revealed?
[misstay71] 4:56 pm: mm hazel
