Greetings Drow666

I am a firm believer in doing meditation at least once a day because it clears your mind of the stress created from the mundane world around us.

Meditation is a good tool and it powers the mind in return will focus more intent into spells. The mind is full of power and is constantly working even when sleeping. So by calming the mind and removing from it unwanted thoughts and negativity, will increase your mental power during ritual.

Physical fitness was a major part of my life until I injured my back and I would love to continue to do it but after a couple of surgeries my body can't take it anymore. But I would workout 3-4 times a week if I was able to.

Dark Blessings
Noc

Funny you should ask...I just today recommitted myself to Transcendental Meditation. I haven't done it in years, but it is a very powerful discipline. I was inspired to return to it while reading David Lynch's Catching the Big Fish, a book he wrote on the benefits of TM relating to creativity.

"Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the spiritual guru whose pupils included the Beatles and Clint Eastwood, has died. The founder of transcendental meditation, a mind control technique using chanting, died at about 6pm GMT at his home in the Dutch town of Vlodrop. He was thought to be 91, although his exact birth date is unclear."

Just reading through and saw that this just fit with the last post...

On topic...

Much can be gained through meditation and visualization... Some would say that using both might do away with the need for rituals...

Meditation should be a important part of your day. It really clears your mind. If you do it enough, you can help to cure yourself of whatever is bothering you. When i first started meditation, i used the old voodoo skeleton dance. Concentrate on the bones in your toes and then move up your feet, legs, and so on. every breath you take relax more and more. If anyone is interested i will be glad to shair how i do it. Their is a little more to it than i put here so far. Its WELL worth your while to try. I have done some really wild stuff. Meditation is the key to a lot of different things. A VERY good tool. A must learn.

Whoa! The Maharishi passes the day after I decide to take up the practice for the first time since I was 14? Very strange.

I am currently training in Ki-Aikido and I find meditation, calm reflextion and concentrating on my one point to be extremely useful and helpful. It gives me more focus and strength of mind. Saying that I think the concept of Ki is mearly an outdated way or explaining how we are able to cause our bodies to gain great strength when in a state of hyper-spasm relaxation. You need to be so relaxed that the body uses micro-spasms to generate heat and sensation. It does however work reguardless, I'm just summising on the biology.

Either way, I find meditation to be extremely fulfilling.

From my stand point, Physical Fitness (or PT - Physical Training) is necessary. Mostly because my occupation requires top-notch fitness levels, so physical fitness to me is something extremely valuable and important if one wishes to advance through physical doings.

As for meditation and Satanism - I can't and won't comment on that as I'm not a Satanist; so anything I did say might reflect badly upon those who are, and if I potentially represented the wrong answer on a 'Satanic Behalf' it might stir up some unwanted and unnecessary conflicts.

Honestly DaVinci, being Satanist is not exceptionally different from any philosophy of life. Most standard everyday atheists will agree with most things Satanists feel, Satanists are just more upfront about it generally.

Don't worry about causing conflict though, it's unlikely to happen. The people here are the type to debate and discuss, they don't argue and bait though. In my experience at least.

Tornado how long have you been studying Aikido? I studied Martial Arts for over 15 years and obtained my 4th Degree Black Belt.

Meditation helped me to focus on my inner strengths and to over look pain, because we did full contact with no pads after 2ND Degree to toughing our minds, bodies and our spirits....

I got started with meditation from studying Tae-Kwon Do, when I was 7 years old. Meditation has really helped me over the years not only with Martial Arts but the Magickal Arts as well.

I try meditate everyday and its help me a lot with the pain I've went through from my back injury and nerve pains in my leg....
I've found meditation to be more comforting to help heal myself then by taking any kind of pain medications.

Anyone who sits and does meditation over a period of time will notice a huge difference within themselves, It will help you focus on what things are really important to you in your life....

Some will disagree about the effects one will get from meditation, but who cares because as long as its working for me thats all that really matters. I follow whatever works for me physically and spiritually and meditation allows me to just that.

I also like to meditate. This is a unique feeling and makes fun. Then, I feel very much better. I'm at the beginning.

I have meditated somewhat in the past, and it did calm me down immensely when I was under stress. I haven't done it for quite some time, and I really think i ought to get back into the whole routine.

I have only been doing Aikido for 4 months and I'm not good enough to use it as a form of self defense against anyone with any form of training but I find it helps me in other ways. I am fitter both physically and mentally and a lot of it is due to meditation. Learning to relax completely is actually a lot harder than people realise, you have to practice it and it eventually helps you in many ways... or at least I've found this to be the case.

I'm hoping to take Aikido a lot further. I'm 22 now, but I don't think it's too late to learn. Another martial art I am very intersted in and did a few sessions of at the local gym was Muoy Tai which I may look into again at a later date.

I have to say, the best thing that can come out of martial arts is the discipline you learn. Years back (When I was in secondary school..), I was training in Tae Kwon Do. The problem was after I got attacked at school (Sadly, I wasn't fully prepared to use the skills I had learned, due to being very timid in the past), and I got picked on by the tutor in the end. Then I quit. I'm kinda regretting it now, as I could have gotten much further if I'd just stuck it out.

I'm thinking of taking it back up. But I most certainly don't want to study under the same tutor. I'm gonna have to look around for alternative places to go.

I believe meditation can be very useful for concentration and sanity.
