- Hi Cindy, acouple of simple meditations are use a simple mantra, just pick out a meaning less phrase and repeat that as you breath out. (sham. hum. sat num.) or one of my favorites is saying a meaning full phrase. I like using Namaste. which means the spirit i me salutes the spirit in you. or a short bible verse or any short meaningfull phrase. namaste Bob

The mantra most practiced is OM. In issue #8 of our newsletter, The
Inner Traveler, we had the great blessing of using some of the best OM
illustrations ever done, in conjunction with an article about OM. They
are the artwork of Daniel Holeman, who is clearly divinely gifted, and
is compassionate and gracious enough to be willing to share the
products of his (he)art-work with us. And gazing at OM, or any other
holy symbol, is one of the oldest meditation methods. Here is the URL
for that issue...
It is about 2.5MB, so will take a while to download, unless you have a
high speed connection, but I am confident that you will find it worth
the wait. I hope this will be of benefit and enjoyment to you.
Peace and blessings,
