Henry, I'm actually having a similar issue. I've been trying to meditate, but my mind can't seem to keep focused. When I'm supposed to think of something, like a beach or a house, I can't make up my mind and I end up thinking too much. I'd love to know how to deal with that too! biggrin.gif

I as well would like some help with this problem. I cannot remain focused on one thing when I try to hold an image in my mind in my attempts to meditate.

I dream I'm this adventurer. This daredevil, a madman. The Doctor, I'm called. And last night, I dreamt that you were there. As my companion.

I often find it easier to meditate with guided meditation tapes, or just relaxation music smile.gif

It's in the trees, it's coming!

If you lay on your back , or in a chair in a "lay back" kinda position , place your arms next to you with your hands turned upwards . Then close your eyes , start off by concentrating on your breathing and slowing it down , let all muscles relax , starting from your head  , working your way down to your toes , this part takes the longest , wich is supossed to relax you . Imagine only one area every time you meditate , youll get to know it better like this if you always think of the same safe place for you , it will be like a going home type feeling everytime you enter , Its hard to stay focused at first , but eventually with practice , you should be fine .

Marzo, I will keep that method in mind.  I've been looking for a relaxation technique to help me whenever I have insomnia (when listening to a tape wouldn't exactly be the best option).  Thanks!   smile.gif

I have heard...that it's better not to try so hard to block out thoughts, but to let them come and go and wane a bit on their own. sounds reasonable..

I agree, however I haven't found a tape with someone who has a "soothing" voice. After a minute or two, I can't listen to someone who has a Ben Stein voice or something along those lines....
Any ideas for a good one?
Also, I'm so going to try the candle exercise. I was once hypnotized and she said I'm a perfect canidate for it, and meditation too! Yet I can't concentrate unless there is someone telling me to do so. biggrin.gif
