Insight Meditation Technique

We spend our quiet moments mentally conversing with ourselves, thinking over situations and problems on all levels. Should I do this or that? How should I act?

We can get good advice from our 'wise voice within' by following the 3-part sequence of
2. quietly waiting;
3. then listening to advice that comes to mind.

How do we know the advice is really for the highest good of all concerned? Answer: Our body feels relaxed and our mind stays calm in thinking about our plan of action.

Insight Meditation Practice

Preparation: Either sit straight, hands in lap, or if you can stay awake, lie on your back in relaxation pose. Close your eyes.

Begin even regular breathing. Example: Breathe in 1 count; breathe out 1 count; breathe in 1 count; continue for about a minute.

Next, bring your attention to what you want further insight about; ask for what you want to know.

Now, for a minute or more, go back to listening to your regular breaths. It is during this quiet phase of meditation, when the body is relaxed and mind calmed by even breathing, that our wise voice within -- our creative, inventive mind -- comes to the forefront. It is heard in the form of new insights and their practical applications. Stay with these new ideas for a few minutes.

To finish your meditation take a deep breath in and out; stand up and stretch; take time to write new insights and ideas in a notebook or journal.
