Kasmira, what would you say is the point to your meditations?  Is it just a way to take a break from everything, or do you get to some point and try to figure out a problem or question? 

I suppose that I use it in two different ways depending on the circumstances. As my concept of the divine is that it is present in everything around me and in me, my meditation helps me to 'reconnect' so to speak with that force of the divine in me and around me. This helps me if life has been particularly frantic recently and I am feeling particularly disconnected, I suppose it helps me refresh.

As well as as a method of connection I also find that this meditation helps me to see things that I may have been puzzling over more clearly. Sort of like how when a problem comes up a lot of people will 'sleep on it' so they can see it from a slightly different perspective in the morning in order to try and find a solution.

However, usually if I am trying to puzzle through a particular problem I will follow up my meditation with working a little with my tarot cards, I don't use them for divination so much as as a method of giving my mind a novel way of approaching a situation, I will deal the cards and try to relate them to the problem I am looking at. I can't really think of a way to explain this without rambling into a longer post than I want to do as it does not particularly relate to your question.

So essentially this is a basic meditation that I can either use by itself to enable me to reconnect and refresh or use as a basis for further work.
