Meditation is a wonderful technique, not only to relax, but also in magical working. For me personally, at this moment, I’ve only worked with visualization. Making pictures in your mind and focusing on them is a very powerful tool and actually one most people already learn to employ naturally during childhood. Many games involve imagination and visualization, and children are very good at it. I used to play a game where someone else would lie on the ground with their eyes closed and I’d tell a story and at the end of the story they were allowed to open their eyes again… it took me years to realize I was actually doing a guided meditation.
Guided meditations are my favourite, and on YouTube, you can find literally hundreds, if not thousands. Sometimes the voice sounds a bit weird, but just try to ignore that and listen to the tale (or search another if it’s too distracting). A few days ago, I found a guided Mabon meditation. A soothing voice, the symbolism and images that belong to the equinox and just long enough to be comfortable. As it says in the description, it is meant for Mabon, but much of the symbolism is also generally fall-related, so obviously you can enjoy it now as well.
There is much more to find, all different kinds of treasures online, so if this one doesn’t suit you, there are lots of other options. Let me know what you think!
