Meditation and Visualization Techniques

Meditation and visualization techniques help to quiet the mind and bring greater clarity to the thinking process. By training the mind to concentrate on a single object such as the breath, an inspiring idea or visual image, energy center (chakra), sound (mantra), the normally scattered mind can become more efficient and focused. These techniques can help a person observe and experience emotions arising from the unconscious while at the same time they learn to let go of disturbing aspects of these feelings. Meditation can help a person live in the here and now, to enjoy life more fully, and to stop dwelling on past experiences or on future worries.

Meditation and visualization techniques can help a person experience the inner connections to themselves, other people, to their environment, and to the universe around them. This often results in greater feelings of compassion, unity and oneness. Meditation also helps an individual to develop intuition and to get in touch with their creative potential.
