The next step is to teach you how to meditate with your eyes closed. There, where no one will disturb you, sit in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Now select a character or word on which you will focus. If you are more attracted to visual images, select a character. If the sound, select the word. Initially, any image which you have chosen to be very simple. Use simple geometric shapes, your name or nickname of a religious symbol or a monosyllabic verb or a noun. Beginners often choose words associated with occult goals, "down", "will", "peace", "together" and "all." Squares, circles, triangles and ovals - the most minor pieces that can be stored in the mind for a long time. Mentally, dye them in one of the primary colors: red, blue, or yellow.
Lock the selected character / word in your mind and start to see / to repeat it until then, until no other thoughts. Allow yourself to merge completely with the object. Feel, feel it. If your thoughts will go away, return them back.
Also perform this exercise daily for several weeks, each time trying to extend your complete control over the process. Exercise should last 20-30 minutes. At this point, you should feel immersed in a trance soon after the beginning of meditation. This feeling means that you have successfully managed to slow down the brain, in other words, you have reached the guided meditations.
If you still feel that you do not exercise the way it should, you can try to use the countdown method. Just close your eyes and begin to slowly count backwards from any number that choose (100 - a good starting point). During accounts try to feel like you fall into yourself, right in the center of his being. Buddhists use the same practice for beginners who, trying to go into an altered state of consciousness, consider their breaths. Both methods are well and lead to the same result. Choose the one that works best in your case.
Even if you are learning slowly, to this point, you should definitely be able to go into a meditative state, even if it seems to you that you do not work or you can not enter into it as deeply as you would like. If you want to know with which you can compare your feelings, try reading a book or watching television, and the most interesting place become aware of the feelings that you are experiencing. You will realize that they are similar to those that you experience in a state of altered consciousness medium.
Another way to check how much you have progressed in their studies is to look at the clock before and after meditation. In the altered state of consciousness, perception of time is distorted. If you see that it has been more or less time than you expected, then you really have succeeded!
