      Anxiety for many of us is a continual presence.
      Like a hive of bees in the garden we may all of got
      used to there constant buzz of worry. That much that
      we may no longer even notice it.<br>Here is a
      visualization exercise that I learned called, 'Silencing The
      Buzz'.<br><br>Sit comfortable and close your eyes. Imagine that you
      are walking down a path in a silent forest. Soon you
      come across a clearing. Walk slowly to the centre of
      the glade and sit down.<br><br>As if from nowhere
      animals surround you. They mean no harm, but each
      represents a concern. The larger the animal the greater the
      anxiety. (for example a gazelle may represent a work
      deadline and a lion may represent a problem within a
      relationship).<br><br>In another part of the glade is a beehive. Bees
      swarm near by, making the buzz of free flowing
      worry.<br><br>Gently touch each animal. As you do so, they quieten and
      disappear into the forest. The only sound left is the buzz
      of the bees.<br><br>Imagine all your tiny worries
      one by one entering the hive, until the glade is
      silent. Your worries are still, your concerns will be
      dealt with another day. All around is peace.

        Hi Lora,
        I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
        http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
        listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
        easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
        quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
        breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
        onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.

        I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
        starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
        matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
        the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
        and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.

        Eve
