I hypnotize myself into meditation. Here is my process:
I close my eyes and breathe deeply in and out from my diaphram while trying to clear my mind. I picture a staircase with 10 steps. I step down to 9
deeper psychic level, step down to 8 deeper psychic level, and so on until I get to step 1 deepest psychic level.
I also try to see thru my eyelids while they are closed while I am going down the staircase. If everything goes well, pretty soon I will see either
shadows, shapes, colors swirling whatever.
I took a while as I am a very high strung person, but it works for me. Now I can pretty much do it within a couple of minutes.
There are many good books on meditation for beginners. Try the half price book store. I got most of mine for under $5!
Have fun and don't give up. Practice every day. I find myself wanting to medidate longer and longer each day.
