      I like the simple approach, I think some beginners get scared off or confused withh all the jargon.  I'll leave the details to you aged vets!

      practice is key. Realize that you'll lose focus but don't let it get
      you frustrated and before you know it you will be able to almost
      instantly get into a meditative state.

      the way it is until our left brain encounters a situation that proves

      many things...and today it doesn't seem to work like it once did.

      being and attract to you all the things that fufill what you seek!
      Jesus said, "therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer,
      believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Examine:
      > I tell you - Jesus stands behind this statement. He is telling us
      from his experience and knowledge (I will not assert his divinity
      here, but as a sage of remarkable spiritual accomplishments; I think
      more people can then be receptive to this analysis)
      > whatever - any or any one of a number of things whether
      specifically known or not; pretty broad! not just spiritual, but
      physical accomplishments and procurements as well

      spirit guide, God, Jesus, Buddhas, enlightened beings...or even just
      yourself! "May I be free from illness"..." may I replace my old beat

      > in prayer - undistractedly focused on the object to whom or what
      you pray. Meditation, concentration.
      > believe - to have a conviction that (a person or thing) is, has
      been, or will be engaged in a given action or involved in a given
      situation. In other words, you should be able to visualize it crystal
      clear!! The stronger the image in the left hemisphere, the more power
      in the right hemisphere.

      now will ripen to experience the perceptions of this appearance in
      your own life; this is not just a statement of one controversial
      spiritual being, but this was taught by the Buddha in tantra;
      Kabbalah, and other practices.
      > The denial that even thought can control or inspire the physical
      world is simply due to the lack of witnessing for oneself. If it
      can't be analyzed by the left brain, it can't be accepted by the
      whole psych-physical being.
      > Managing the wandering mind will be of value to the visualization
      process. Left by itself to simply focus on "nothing", the mind will
      not progress with new material, but remain steadfast in its old
      material. We should be trying to change the program. Don't get stuck
      on the preliminaries; there is a deeper universe 'enfolded' within
      the 'unfolded' world we think we see.
