Thanks for your response I think I might make an online purchase of his book tonight.

I hope all is going well for you.
Thanks for the props.

Im struggling as always but things will get better. I am the "victim" of my own decisions and some have been unwise, others i have no control over as situations dictate.

I have the book I recommended but have not really gotten into it like I want and I've had it for over a year. Like I mentioned elsewhere meditation has not really helped me since moving from los angeles two years ago because of my angst trying to deal with an unstable job/career situation. I do find time--here and there---but qualitative meditation does require a dedication to make it a regular part of your daily routine.

I had an auto accident a few months ago and go to therapy 2 or 3 times a week. I get extensive massage therapy and it sufficiently relaxes me for up to two days.

Perhaps acupunture or accupressure combined with meditation may be of benefit, or a course on the practice of reiki healing. This is a hands-on approach that does not really involve reading and engaging it ritual.

Meditation or any other practice should be therapeutive and lead to healing.

Note: I have engaged in chakra meditation and practicing some of the exercises the Medu Neter outlines. Some of these worked. But a gifted therapist can FEEL what centers you have that are blocked and which need healing.

Yoga, tai-chi, qi-gong all are good practices to aid in the art of healing.

What are the goals and benefits of meditation? If compared to exercise, and keeping in mind different exercises will have give you different results, would a schedule of on going meditation strengthen an individual's mind, spirit or both?

If it's purpose is to distill knowledge from our divine self as bro. Istlota stated, do we do this with concerns, guidence, or yearning questions we need answered? Or maybe to check to see if there is message waiting for us 'sort to speak'?

This is why I suggested combining editation with yoga, tai chi, etc. Even finding a good masseuse. All of these thing combined help to open up your "centers" and help to eliminate toxis and parasites within. Even walking while listening to your favorite music can help.

Since you created this thread I went and dug up some books in storage, one which I recommended. There are other books dealing with yogic practice but Ashby's book is rather extensive with its various references to related topics and illustrating how Egyptian Yoga is related to other systems. I find this useful when the pictures help me to see some things tht I have not noticed before when looking at some of the ancient hieroglyps and artifact.

Myself, Im gonna make an effort to establish an on-going, regular schedule to not only meditate, but also doing more walking since I now am living near a park. Im also going to start detoxing again. This worked for me before but I got off my program for a number of reasons.

Peace my brother.

Good Questions...

Im not going to dismiss the advice of others who suggest seeking a spiritual advisor, teacher, guide, etc.

However, something I read in Ashby's book reminded me of something.

"As he states,

Developing the power of INTUITION is essential on the spiritual path. This is the only way to become ONE with GOD. INTUITION is PERFECTION while the thinking mind is related to the egotistical vision of one's self as an individual."

I suggest you "meditate" on this and SEE what it means to YOU.

Your Divine Inner Self, the Power within YOU will reveal what this means to YOU without guidance and without external intervention.

Anyone have new experiences meditating? I imagine that many of the people who posted on this thread should be meditation masters by now!

I'm a newby too. The best advice I've recieved was, girl...sit down, be still, shut up and feel the breathe of your life enter and leave your body.

When I first sat to do this I could only breathe in for a count of six comfortably(breathe in tummy should poke out like its filling up) That's what I was told...at first this felt stressful. I breathed out by blowing out through a slightly opened mouth for a count of six (as you blow out tummy should feel like the air is being squeezed out). This also felt stressful. I bumped the breathes down to a 4 count. I quickly got comfortable with diaphragm breathing...thats what its called. NOW I dont count...I breathe in til I feel like my breathe has filled me from my tummy to my collar bones then I calmly exhale til it feels like my tummy is squeezed out of all air.

I had put all my new books away. Decided I would do nothing else but breathe. I dont have an alter yet or even a special place yet to meditate. At anytime I want to feel my higher power...its not a prep thing for me...I just melt into the next inhalation and everything else stops...I dont let anything else in...Its just me and Ra...this is what meditation feels like for me right now.

This is my journey my way at my pace. At this point I am ready to take another step. I can pull out a book now...I know...I'm slow...but it's worth it! Lol!

Best advice I can give is be conscious of your breaths...and make time to just observe and feel Ra ride in and out on your breaths. Feeling that ones with Ra is the best foundation in my spiritual walk everything else is icing.
