      Hi, I just noticed this group & decided to join.
      I've been going through a rough time for the past few
      years & stopped meditating. Recently my husband died &
      I'm scared to be "alone" by myself inwardly &
      otherwise. <br><br>I know meditation would help but I'm very
      much out of the habit & can't seem to get myself back
      into it. I need encouragement or some feedback from
      others. And a reason to live as well. Previously I was a
      long-time meditator & taught it to others. Now I can't even
      get back into doing it to help myself. Any response
      or comment will be deeply appreciated. <br><br>Thanx
      & blessings,<br>Lananda (Astro)

        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
