    THE OSCILLATION MEDITATION
    Mind at rest while in movement

    Written by Ouroboros.

    Meditation has a long list of benefits, and anyone interested in finding out more about it can search for it, but this isn't the subject of this text.

    I know that many meditation techniques usually require a peaceful space or that the user is set into a comfortable position, but this kind of traditional meditation is limitating for three reasons:
    1.It's dependable on where you are.
    2.It's dependable on how you're feeling(comfort or discomfort).
    3.It's dependable on your capacity to avoid distractions.

    Some people just aren't able to sit still and enter this state, or don't have the luxury of having at their disposal all of the itens on the list, so I would like to share the meditation I made for myself.It isn't hard to learn and I'm sure that it will be handy in some situations, specially when you are moving or as I like to say 'in action'.

    PHYSICAL OSCILLATION PHASE
    Standing still, start to slowly oscillate yourself(from side to side or forward and backwards is your choice, just don't loose your equilibrium).With a little bit of time this movement will become like a a comfortable hypnotizing sensation that will put yourself right into a meditative state.

    You can also do this movement while crouched or sat down if necessary, but it's best done while stand up, at least in the beginning.

    MENTAL OSCILLATION PHASE
    After a while of being used to the physical oscillation, you will be able to call back this feeling inside your mind, as if the oscillation was coming from inside of you instead of needing an external action.It takes more time to adjust to this mentally though, and at the beginning of this phase it might seem uncomfortable or give the sensation as if you would have a migraine.Don't worry, it is something you have to get used to.

    TIMING
    Keep in mind that the timing of oscillations in both phases will depend on you.

    Do you go big movements and slow(an sphere in a string), or fast paced small ones(a metronome)?Particularly when doing a physical activity I do enjoy do use the second, because when I synchronize the mental stimulus to the outside one I can develop a rhythm that helps me become even more focused on my exercises.
    TIP-The sphere in a string and the metronome are great ways to also visualize the oscillation in your mind if you are having difficulty with getting the feeling right.

    Seems like this may be useful for people that have trouble, albeit, the sensation of moving back and forth, and then manifesting that mentally is a method that is used for a trance commonly in communities. So yes, I would imagine this would work well for anyone who can't do a different method.

    I created this way in the beginning, when I had issues with focusing during a spar or training.Any kind of energy work wasn't even on my mind back then.

    What you described in this post is a method I myself also have used for a very long time, but I call it "Active Meditation". Rather being in a meditative state while also "instinctively" doing your day-to-day actions.

    I named that because whenever I needed to meditate I would find it easier to link this "easy flowing" feeling to the image of a moving object and be able to synchronize my breathing with my footwork.Of course it expanded to other situations as well.

    I even ended up making more variations of "oscillations" for other types of physical work.

    I'm definitely going to try out this method very soon. My limited success in meditation certainly seems to be inhibiting my energetic growth.

    I think that most people fool themselves into believing that there is just one way-or the only right way-of meditating.Most of them just go with the words of their "masters" and forget that we can adapt anything to tailor our necessities, search for new ways or improve something that already exists.

    By limiting yourself to just one way of meditating you are already creating an excuse as to why you can't do it.

    I always take great care to keep in mind that everybody's path is different and that what might work very well for one individual might be the exact worst method for others. To this point I have tried numerous ways to meditate, but none have garnered much success.

    It is apparent that, to the extent to which it has worked, some areas of my training have gone more smoothly (though perhaps no more swiftly). Still, there are things that I would like to do that meditation has yet to assist me in (i.e. projection, of any sort).
