Meditation and Self Hypnosis:
Meditation Techniques With Relevant Self Hypnosis Exercises To Help Relax And Focus Your Mind. A Bridge From A Busy Mind To Meditation
If you've tried to meditate but had difficulty getting into it or you want to begin meditation, this is the book for you. Meditation techniques are described along with relevant self hypnosis exercises to help the meditator relax and focus his or her mind. This is an ideal bridge from a busy mind to meditation. Tips for selecting the right technique and how to properly prepare for a meditation session are presented. This book draws upon the rich tradition with Judaism but there is discussion about how these techniques can be used by anyone regardless of religious belief or for the general purpose of relaxation.
I wrote a book entitled Meditation and Self Hypnosis, which is available as an ebook and in paperback on Amazon.com. If you would like to meditate or you have tried but have had difficulty, this could be the book for you. As a clinical hypnotist, in practice for 30 years, I have worked with many people who already do some form of meditation. I have been meditating myself for over 40 years. When I taught self hypnosis to a client who was meditating, I would devise a self hypnosis exercise that would fit seamlessly with his meditation technique. Seeing the value in this, I began working on a project to describe many different meditation techniques, discussing the value of each one, and devise a self hypnosis exercise to fit with each one. One of the reasons people have difficulty meditating is that they sit down and try to meditate and their mind is just too busy to concentrate. By doing a self hypnosis exercise first, you can quiet your mind and relax and then go into meditation more easily. These exercises act as a bridge from a busy mind into meditation. There is also detailed discussion in the book about how to select the best meditation technique for how your imagination works and how to best prepare for a meditation session. I have taught all of this in classes and it has been very well received.I brought the richness of Jewish spiritual teachings into the book, but also describe how each technique can be used by anyone regardless of religious belief or for the purpose of simply relaxing.
