This is a 15-minute guided meditation in which we turn our attention to the space of the mind – the domain where thoughts, images, memories, and feelings arise. This meditation helps us to become familiar with the true nature of our human mind and the true nature of our mental activity, by taking a step back from being dragged along and instead, simply observing. When we are experiencing crippling anxiety, stress, depression, and other strong negative emotions, it is easy to become overwhelmed and can seem impossible to gain control over our mind. This meditation allows us to see that thoughts, feelings, memories, are not as big, scary and daunting as they seem. Instead, we see that they are formless – they have no shape, colour, size, smell, or tactile properties. By seeing this directly, we can realise our power as the agent, the ‘thinker,’ and learn to gain control over our mind and our emotions, instead of them having control over us.
