All meditation teaches willpower, control, focus, and intent, but focal meditation can give insight into objects, people, ideas, and situations. Focal meditation will pick one thing to focus on for the whole meditation. Sitting and focusing on one subject for an extended period can bring you closer to it and can let you experience that thing in a new way. The idea is to let your Skaknao be in communion with the kna of the object or idea so that you can sit with it and be.
- First, you need to pick a topic to meditate on. This can be anything and everything, and pick something you want to know better.
- Find a comfortable spot where you will not be disturbed. Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing. Sit, lay, or stand in your location, depending on your meditation preference. Here is where you also should center, ground, and use some other protection method.
- Next, you will want to close your eyes or keep them open if you have the object to focus upon. Visualize your topic as clearly as you can. If it is more of an idea, visualize its act or things that have to do with it. Embrace, and connect with your topic as much as you can. Feel as if it was a part of you. Please take it to the very core of your being. Allow yourself to explore new ideas and different points of view about your topic to stretch your understanding of it. Feel your thoughts and emotions on the subject. Remember, knowledge is power, and knowledge gains you control over the things you know of. Stay in this state of communion with your topic as long as you would like to. Once you are done, move to the next step.
- Once you are done, slowly return to the waking world. Open your eyes, and then go among your day.
