What is Object Meditation?
Posted by on 01 December, 2005

Object meditation is meditation on a thing, concrete or abstract. Read about its goals and benefits, and discover why the experience of object meditation is both humbling and inspiring at the same time. Also, learn how you can discover which meditation methods have YOUR name on them.





Object meditation is simply meditation on a thing, concrete, like a flower; or abstract, like a concept. Object meditation offers numerous benefits, one of which is that it teaches us to concentrate and to sustain focus. This is why, in some formal meditation practices, object meditation is the first thing a student learns.

When the novice begins to meditate on an object, something interesting happens. She or he quickly realizes that: (1) the mind wanders incessantly; (2) taming the mind is going to be no small task; (3) disciplining the mind is necessary to achieve self-mastery; and (4) meditation offers a solution. Early attempts at object meditation thus tend to be simultaneously inspiring and humbling.

In most cases, object meditation is not meant to elicit a particular type of experience. Rather, the idea is to work with whatever presents itself. Anything can happen during object meditation: one may encounter personal demons, become bored, experience some profound realization or enter worlds of light. Or a guide may appear and give some instruction. The meditator learns to let whatever comes up teach, heal or reveal, as the case may be -- all the while going ever deeper into the meditation.

The challenge of object meditation is to hold the focus without trying too hard or letting the mind wander. When this happens, the focus is gently redirected to the object. When through sustained effort the meditator is finally able to hold the mind steadily on the object, real progress can be made, and magnificent breakthroughs in consciousness can occur.

Reprinted from the author´s website, this article originally appeared in The Isis Scrolls. Rev. Sue Annabrooke Jones is the voice behind "Mental Yentl, the Meditation Matchmaker." Pairing her psychic instrumentality with her writing and researching experience, Sue matches the client with 8-12 of the more than 100 types of meditation out there, based on spiritual vibration and other esoteric factors. Sue also does Life Purpose Readings, which include a free Oracle Reading, like the new Hawaiian Huna Kai Reading. She is the author of two jokes books, Chuckle Chowder and Chuckle Chowder II: Second Helping. Visit her website at http://CosmicLotus.org> http://CosmicLotus.org>.
