Some other members and I have been talking about how we keep meaning to try meditating regularly, but can't seem to get into the habit - I've just had an idea about it. A few years ago, a lady on here called Tricia, who'd trained as a spiritual healer, started a meditation circle among some of the forum members, where we'd all pray for each other at 7 o'clock each evening. For each other and for everyone on the forum, and sometimes people who were doing particularly badly used to ask her to make a note of their names and pray for them. It used to I swear, it used to help, although that could just have been because I was meditating myself. It was just a great help to know that other people were there. It's worth a try.
Besides that, whatever you think of the "distant healing" aspect, it did get me to meditate. I was meditating almost every evening, only for 5 or 10 minutes usually but that seemed to be enough to make a sizeable difference to my state of mind. It seems to make a big difference having some particular purpose to it. Tricia doesn't post now, and the 7 o'clock thing seemed to have faded out as far as I know; so a few of us have decided to start it going again. I'm intending to do it regularly at 7 o'clock from tonight on, unless something else intervenes! Anyone who wants to join in, please do.
I've posted about this once before, by the way, in case you noticed, but I didn't explain it very well at the time and I don't think many people saw the thread, so I'm starting afresh.
If I haven't explained this clearly, do ask questions!
