The object of concentration exercise can be anything. A coin, a stamp,
a flower, or a quartz crystal are all good. Each of those have enough
detail to help keep your mind focused, but are not so complex as to lead
you away from the purpose of the exercises. Using a flower bud or a crystal
will have a tendency to develop your clairvoyant abilities.
In the beginning its best to find a quiet place where you can be undisturbed.
You might find it useful to use earplugs. After a while this will be
Don't demand too much of yourself in the beginning. Start with exercises
lasting one minute or less, but do them regularly and correctly.
Gradually increase the duration of the exercise by an additional minute
per day. Gradually increase duration until you can do the exercise for
at least 15 minutes. As time goes on gradually increase the duration of
the exercise until you can do it for an hour or more.
Your body relaxation must be complete, except for the muscles which hold your
your body in the appropriate position. Make an effort to relax every
muscle before starting the exercises. The rule is that your body should
be relaxed, and your mind intensively active.
1.CONCENTRATION ON A SIMPLE OBJECT: Select your object. Relax, and make
the decision that you will concentrate for your selected period of time
on that object.
Now start thinking about it. Think about it's shape, color, material that
it is made from, and so forth. If your mind wanders gently bring it back.
Try to memorize it's form. Then close your eyes and try to visualize it.
If you can't visualize it and at first you probably won't be able to, open
your eyes and try to memorize it's form again. Then close your eyes and
try to visualize it again. Repeat this process until the time for the exercise
2. Do the same exercise as above only do it with colors. Then different shapes,
and when you get really good at this try it with people.
When you can do the above exercises without your mind wandering for 15
minutes or longer, you will have acomplished a great deal.
3. Keep a dream journal. Begin to notice your dreams and write them down
each morning. Before you go to bed each night, review your day in reverse.
This practice will help you start to remember your dream.
Proceed with your meditations. The first stage is: "I don't know what I'm doing,
but gradually I will learn." That's where rigid but simple discipline is most important.
Do not miss meditation periods. Meditate at least twice a day, in the morning upon
arising, and just before bedtime. I prefer to meditate at noon also,but in our everyday
environment this can become almost impossible.
Once you have done this for a while you will find that your meditation has grown more
elaborate. You will get ideas as you are sitting and staring at a Tarot card, picturing
a flower, or looking into a mirror. You will spontaneously come up with ways to enhance
your meditation. Start using some of these things. Make a selection and use the best
part of them consistently. Develop a system. You will know when you have succeded when
you reach the point of listening to yhe inner voice.
Don't expect too much too soon. Like anything that is worth anything, it takes time.
Be patient with yourself.
