Imaginings

I heard some great advice at my last circle meeting. When you are trying to still your mind for meditation, you can imagine a box and you place all of your thoughts and worries into this box and lock it with a key. This will allow you to focus on the stillness without constantly being interrupted by your thoughts. At the end of the meditation you can open the box and take it all back 🙂 Many people use visualisation to assist. Some other ideas I have heard are: the worry tree that you can hang your problems on, bathing yourself in a protective light, putting all your worries into a backpack and then taking it off and placing your burdens onto the ground etc It is a personal choice. Whatever works for you. Does anyone else have any suggestions?
