You will possibly get other concepts that disagree with me, but I say to banish the ego completely is not the way to go. You keep hearing to die to the ego. I say the ego is the predominate force in all of your lives (plural) that protect the self preservation action to keep you in survival mode. I do not agree with that but most others will disagree with me regarding that point.

That's a fair point, so maybe it's not a matter of getting rid of it, but to conquer it? I feel like I'm talking about it as if it was a separate entity, but it can feel like that in certain moments

I'm not sure if asking about visualization is off topic in a meditation (though the question does involve it) thread, but I didn't want to start a new thread if it wasn't called for.

Can or should you practice visualization while meditating, or should you just focus on clearing your mind, or does it kinda go hand in hand? Apologies if this seems like a stupid question, but i just don't want to work backwards before I even start down a path.

There are many different techniques of meditation and they can have different purposes and effects. Visualization is possible and some techniques do make use of focused visualization, however you should not confuse those with the types of meditation used to clear the mind and attain the absence of thought as they are different things.

Maxx: I would say just starting, I mean I do from time to time try it out but only in the last few weeks have I really started getting serious about it (honestly I would also say that about Magick as a whole; finding the Aset Ka webpage and by extension finding this site have sparked a more focused research from me)

Jonathan: Thanks for the info, much appreaciated

what magic group have you selected to study from? Hermetic, Chaos, etc? Are you just starting in your work with energy within that framework?

Chaos appeals to me the most right now, my beliefs have always in flux ,so i'v been on sacred sites reading some Peter Carroll works. Funny that you mention it, energy was going to be one of my next questions. What would be the best sources to learn from?

Meditation is something I constant uses which lead me to have the ability of astral projection. Long story short. Please bear with me. I am fully deaf as in your other famous word hearing impairment...... That's not the point. The point my experience and my sister's too. Yes, two of us. Once we were fought each other constant because we were tired of pick up feels and thoughts from each other plus all people around us. We would complain the headache and heartache as if they weren't our own. Our mother knew it was time to teach us how to manage/control our abilities better at early age. Mother decide test my sister out first turn out she didn't have what I have. The second sights. Then she had test me out and realized I have such powerful second sight that scared her because of how young I was then. Only 6 yrs old. I can go into details for that but kind long. For the meditation part our mother put us sit face other and told us try block/reading each other. It took several months to put up strongest wall between us. It works and help us manage better out in public without bear such pain from these other people around us.

Many years later I have decide take my time and studying various style of meditation. There is not ONE kind of technique whether its through religion or simple their own spiritual path of practice. It's their way to deal with whatever problems at hands.

Exactly....as each person has a different design with different merits and shortcomings. That is the beauty of every person. We can teach others as well as learn from others. Balance in every life is of utmost importance.

I would have to agree with Mike W the change in the environment and helps set the mood depending on what type of mediation that you are planing to do. I like to use different candles of different colors. I use sandalwood, in my mediation and ground pratice. Smile
