The following is an interesting meditation for self-discovery which doesn’t require any preparation or special knowledge. It is fun and easy to do and provides you with the very interesting information about self and your surroundings.

Ready to have some fun?

Take a few deep breaths, centering yourself. Close your eyes, feel the warmth at the top of your head, continue breathing slow and steady at your own pace. Feel the warmth on your shoulders, down your spine, your chest, your belly, your hips, thighs and all  the way down to the tips of your toes. Relax.

With your eyes still closed imagine or visualize the desert. What does it look like? What does it make you feel? Is it hot, warm or cold there? Note any details that may come to your mind.

Next, imagine a cube in this desert. What does it look like? What is it made of? Where it is located in the desert? What state is it in? What definitions can you give to this cube? Open your eyes and write these definitions down on paper. If the cube feels funny to you, write it like it is, don’t limit yourself.

Now imagine a ladder. What is it made of? What size is it? How many crossbars does it have? How is it relative to the cube?

Next, imagine flowers. How many flowers do you see? What kind of flowers are they? How are they positioned relative to the cube and the stairs?

Write everything down, make sketches if you like.

Next, imagine or visualize a horse. What kind of horse is it? What color is it? What is its size? What is it doing? Where is it in the picture?

Finally, imagine a storm in this landscape. Where does it occur in relation to other objects? How does it happen? What kind  of storm is it?
