We try to meditate together at 9PM Pacific Time on Thursday nights for 15 minutes, but you can use the meditation at any time. This meditation will conclude this sequence. We hope to begin again in mid-2015.

Theme for December 1--December 31, 2014
: Finding What is Permanent Within Us

Last month, we attempted to look to the very small to find those exquisite instances of beauty that so often go unnoticed. The purpose of that mediation was to prepare for this one, which will be the final one in the meditation group. If it is resumed, you will be informed by email, as long as you have left your email address with the group.

We live in a state of constant movement, and, in this electronically driven and instantaneous world, most of us are lost to such practices as meditation, as our various devices lock us ever more tightly into the vast mechanical illusion that we have built to distract ourselves from our birth-aim, which for every human being is to find the holy ground upon which he will stand at the moment the body releases the soul.

How can we come to taste of what is permanent about ourselves, our essence, in a world grown so noisy as to drown out the voice of the soul and, in all to many cases, forever end our chance to be embraced in eternal being?

There is no simple answer, no easy practice. We must find a way within ourselves to step back from the gaudy hurly-burly of life, to see, if only for a moment, the true strangeness and inhumanity of our world.

Get into a meditative state, let your breath flow, let your mind be silent, concentrate your attention on your physical body. Ask yourself: grant me the silence I need. Do this again and again, day after day, year after year. Do not stop. You will find what you need. Nothing is lost.

The Meditation Group is for Unknowncountry participants who have an interest in meditation designed to expand awareness and evolve contact. Many of us have direct experience of the effectiveness of meditative states in communication with our visitors.

The Meditation Group meets virtually two to four times a month, and attempts to meditate as far as possible at the same time on the same theme. Group members are NOT informed of themes and times via email, although occasional emails are sent to the group.

To participate, it's necessary to take an active role: make a resolution to visit this page every two weeks. Put a reminder on your calendar, whatever it takes. And meditate with the group as you are able.

You can join the meditation group by leaving your email address here.

To follow the audio meditations designed by Whitley Strieber, Unknowncountry subscribers should go to Whitley's Room and click on subjects in the subject cloud to the right that include the word 'Meditation.' These meditations reflect his own work with the visitors, and are the result of 40 years of personal meditation, and 11 years of meditation with them.

I'm based in the UK so I think the group meditation time equates to 6:00am on Wednesday 26th, for me. This would be the first time me trying something like this and I'm really looking forward to it.

I haven't much experience of meditating in the tends to be in the evening..but for some reason I haven't done much of it recently. At least I know I will be relaxed in the morning...but it tends to take me quite a while to get out of 'dream' mode when the alarm goes off.

What does anyone else it better to wake up properly before meditating, or should I just dive straight in, so to speak...or do you not think it matters at all?

The meditation set for 9/25/12 reads "Sunday, September 25," but the 25th is a Tuesday.

This is really strange.....There has been a lot of confusion in regards to that date in my life. (Actually the 17th, 24th and 25th). On two different occasions not including this current one with the meditation date (makes three now) some friends and I had to reschedule as well as another friend in that same time frame. We all seemed to looking at the calendar in the same wrong way......Just thought it to be interesting. So, is the meditation set for SUNDAY?

Sunday night was my first time with the group also. I too felt the others as I focused on my body. During this time I got several fleeting images of me being in other places. Standing in a desert, then in an area that I can only say that reminded me of the Tuscany region of Italy. About two thirds of the way through the meditation I felt a cool wind hit my forehead but only in the area of the third eye. I'm not sure what all this means, but I do know that when I left the group, My first thought was "WOW" and that I was at a state of peace and contentment that I have not felt in years.

Like Kay above, I was a regular meditator for about 10yrs, but it's been very sparse for the last five. I've always enjoyed Whitley's meditations and style, and so was glad to see this group start up recently. Last night was my first time joining the group and I enjoyed the thought of sitting along with everyone else at the scheduled time, in unison. Immediately, I began to work through the sensing exercise, which has always been both simple and powerful for me. All the while, I tried to keep in mind that these others from the group were sharing this "space" as well. As soon as I finished a full round of body sensing, coming back to the solar plexus and feeling the expansion from there, I was enormously surprised... POP!... My awareness suddenly formed a nicely coherent bubble around me and I could sense great depth to the vast darkness that exists inside. I settled and relaxed into the feeling a little more and began to feel that if I went much further, I would really begin to enter the sublime.

This was actually somewhat shocking to me. I've been in this type of mode before, but in the past it really took consistent practice to get there. Sometimes the initial meditation after a long dry spell can be enormously rewarding, so maybe this was that. On the other hand, I set out with the intention of communing with and sharing myself with you other people who are making the same effort to connect. Even if I didn't "connect-up" with the group (whatever that means - I'm extremely dubious about hocus-pocus ideas, and even the existence of a soul), just the knowledge of our tiny community trying this out together was quite empowering. I very much enjoyed the whole evening and stayed on for a full half-hour just to soak it in.

Thanks to everyone who participated. I look forward to the future.

That darkness within is a very important place, and one we need to experience. The dark is the source of knowledge, the womb of being. It contains many things, including the long time of the soul, in the form of traceries and signals we have left from our existence, both the active, inbreathing part we call 'life,' and the passive, contemplative part we call 'death.' Accessing it is a matter of 'effortless effort,' that is to say, coming to a synchronous vibration that integrates our whole being. This way, our consciousness becomes the third force in the triad of being, which is then in harmony with itself. First force: active state, or life. Second force: passive state, or death. Third force: balancing consciousness. Keep smiling, and you will find that the secret of the dark is laughter.

I used to meditate regularly about 10 years ago, but stopped. I only occasionally meditate now. So I was one of the newbies. I started the process by sensing my feet first, but felt like I had somehow skipped to my hands and arms and the area of my face associated with my third eye was really throbbing. I tried to slow down the process to my own pace. I got the feeling that I was being helped but I was stubborn and wanted to do go through the process without any help. Despite my resistance to help, I was excited that I might be in contact with others and I began breathing rapidly and couldn't slow my breathing down and I was having difficulty focusing. Then somehow I felt enveloped in calmness and my breathing slowed. I proceeded through the body sensing process. I have always had to use my imagination to feel my vertebrae, but this time I could really sense them. I used the Buddha smile that Whitley suggested and felt my entire body just smiling! It was great fun. Thanks to whomever reached out to help calm me so I could participate. If this group is only for those with years of experience I am sorry that I intruded. If it is open for all, then I'll see you next time.

If you are here, you are welcome to join. We are all newbies at this group meditation. We need someone like Whitley who has experience to help teach us how to do this. Kay, you must have been the "smiling " one "near" me. You were a very vibrant energy. Thank you for joining.

It's very important not to try. Just be. Watch, don't look. There is a subtle but important difference. The key here is the active/passive state. And of course the group is open to everybody. I have over forty years of experience, and each time I begin, I try to make it the first time.

Also had one whopper of a headache after meditation which has never happened before& felt drained.Had to do something mundane ( continued reading To Kill a Mockingbird) before I tried going to bed.

I too felt a lot of tension at the beginning of the meditation, either there was conflict or focus wasn't as strong as Friday's. At the beginning, I saw an image of a narrow vertical object, maybe a knife. There was a also a red circle.

Very soon, though I began to sense words, which did not happen on Friday. I believe the leader of the group suggessted this and tried to send out words. I tried to think a few words in sentence form, then I heard a response, it took me two times to make out the word, but I heard clearly "Ecstacy." I should note too that somebody "near" me was "smiling" a lot. I began working on focusing my energy in the group.

I felt a solid 8 people tonight, with possibly 10 toward the end. However, there was more distraction and it felt like everyone wasn't fully there all the time. At one point I heard my name called out and I moved to the center of the group and radiated a wave of ecstacy outward to the whole group and at one moment felt a coherence with everyone. Then some of us took turns doing this, moving to the center and radiating energy outward. It ended very strongly and I only began to disconnect more than a minute after 10:15. I had noticed people dropping out and realized that it must have been time, but I had to stay just a little longer so I left about 10:16 or a little after.

Fist time with a group like this & couldn't say it was a whole lot different than meditating on my own..went deep & tried to connect.It was quite pleasant...some one said to "ask him about the old lamp that broke" what ever that means.Did have alot of visuals but tried to just refocus on body sensation.15 minutes was too short & I got the sense that there was others that continued too? Stopped at about 10:30

Tonight was my first time meditating with the group. I saw a lot of abstract blue. Then the blue of a glacier, and the blue heart of a flame. Then suddenly about halfway through I felt a strong sense of kinship and warmth, almost as though someone had hugged me. Just fleetingly. The next thing surprised me completely. I visualized blue and golden threads of light shooting out of the top of my head, spreading out across the country, the world, seeking out all of you. Suddenly I felt a strong pulling sensation from the top of my head, I mean STRONG, almost strong enough to pull me up out of my chair. I've never felt anything like it. It didn't feel like I even needed to concentrate or focus to maintain it, any more than you need to focus to keep your arm from flying off. I put my hand on my head and the sensation stopped. It was 10:18. Thank you for letting me be a part of this.

My meditation goes.....I am having more trouble then usual tonight trying to quiet my mind but I have also had a lot of interaction/stimulation with people the whole weekend. Images kept coming to mind as I keep bringing my mind back to a nothingness.

First image is an boxlike object spinning/tumbling over and over in space. Bring myself back from this.

Then, hear/see the words/image of the VIOLET FLAME. Bring myself back from this.

Then, in my mind hear the words Lakota Sioux. Bring myself back from this.

Perhaps someone was thinking about these things???

When I first began tonight's meditation my thoughts went to a friend of mine, a Wiccan High Priest who lost his battle with cancer this past Saturday morning. But then I gained joy knowing that he likely has a strong body of light to keep him a coherent being during the next, non-physical part of his journey through existence. Quite suddenly, l then saw three quarters of a stone wheel representing three forces of the universe: the active, the passive and the neutral. The fourth quarter, that which reconciles and manifests them, then fell into place. I cannot yet see what changes will come to our world when the wheel begins to turn.

Yes, a very powerful meditation indeed. I could sense a number of distinct presences, coincidentally the same number Whitley reported. My third eye was very active too. Did any of you see anything that looked to resemble this ? I was trying to send a moving image of this to all who participated. I also saw an image of a dolphin and a room with a shelf.

The lattice of light.I.saw was the link you referenced.

Yes, Quantum, I did see a shelf.....

See above.....

'It is not light but not dark either, to the right of where I am standing there is a small room with a stone looking shelf attached to a wall.'

Your experience rings true with what I saw, but I saw it slightly in a different manner. I was in a rectangular room with other rooms attached, the first time, the room seemed to have a bluish hue to it, dim, there was a flat shelf. I then was searching for someone there, I was perplexed because I was sure Whitley was to be there, but no one was. I then focused on the shelf again, but this time it seemed like it was maybe a low table, narrow, maybe a foot deep but wider than deep.
I also saw a candle flickering toward the end. I saw the thin vertical flickering flame even at the end of the meditation.

I felt as if there was somebody that showed up a little late and announced their presence very clearly. I also felt that there was someone who was "watching the clock" because I got a sense to wrap it up and right when I felt that "time's up", I looked at my watch and sure enough, 10:15.01 pm on the dot(my watch is synchonized by satellites).

To say the least, I felt connected during this meditation like I never have before. I entered a meditative state earlier today and felt an empiness like I have never realized before until now. Meditating alone is powerful, meditating with a group as focused as we are is literally "A Whole New World".

Thank you all who are participating in this. It is a very wondrous and humbling experience to be connected with others at such a deep level.

Powerful meditation last night. I found myself seeing with my third eye a wheat field. As I stood in the field, it was night and strange shadows played across a full moon. Then, I saw a beautiful lattice of light and could feel everyone participating flow through me. It was a wonderful sensation.

Whitley, I do not need a reply.....

As I went into this meditation at midnight 09-14-15-2012, I found myself trying to understand if the pyramid really exists in Alaska. What I saw might have been a pyramid but not necessarily the one Linda is referring too. One never knows for sure unless of course other subscribers can see it as well. This would be more confirmation that it is there.

I see the PYRAMID. (A PYRAMID BUT CANNOT BE CERTAIN IF IS THE ONE IN ALASKA). All four walls when viewing from the outside are striated. The thought that comes to mind is..... striated fish gills; the breathing lungs of the pyramid. (The building stones are reminding me of ANGKOR WAT).There are three levels or steps surrounding it but I cannot see a door; the apex is not pointed but flat. In my imagination I am now stranding inside the pyramid. It is not light but not dark either, to the right of where I am standing there is a small room with a stone looking shelf attached to a wall. There are other rooms here too but I do not try to go any farther. This whole space appears to be void of any activity or life that I can see. I call out the question, "is anyone here?" A hologram appears, it is humanlike in appearance. I ask, "are you a pre-recorded program to come on when I ask a question and or you even aware of my presence?" He says, "both.....I am a recoded message and we do know you are here."

'There is the story of the man who practised for forty years to walk across the Ganges; and, having succeeded, was reproached by his Holy Guru, who said: "You are a great fool. All your neighbours have been crossing every day on a raft for two pice."'

-Aleister Crowley

I have doing the meditations for some time and have deleted some to continue with the newer ones. Could we find all Strieber's meditations on one page if we wanted to go back to some of them? A search for "meditation" gives me 18 pages of data. I think this is a very practical request..

If you go to the Whitley's Room section, there is a box on the right side of the page that says Posts by Subject. There are three categories there:
General Meditation - this is the original series.
Crop Circle Meditation - self explanatory!
Special Meditation - pretty much everything else.
Hope this helps.

DEc 27 meditation...Started at 11:50 and went till 12:37am.

General quiet stillness...visuals of snakes and tentacles wiggling out of a sea of holes. Had teh feeling they were polluntants emerging from water....weird.

Of course my question comes up with these "lucid visions"---> Are they true visions or merely my brain 'jamming'?
