Meditation is a very powerful tool used by many to strengthen the mind Just like how we exercise our body to be fit and controlled we can also give our brains a workout by performing various exercises Professor Walsh has demonstrated a couple of exercises to explain how meditation is used One exercise requires you to picture a white ring containing a white circle inside with a black background This work out seems easy at first but when performing the task it proved much more difficult In order to keep the image in my mind I had to constantly repeat the instructions in my mind If I tried to keep the motion in my head without repeating the instructions the image will start to shift and move around For me it was the circle and the ring that moved around The black background stayed the same I also notice that the circle and the ring moved around together It seemed as if they were simultaneously dancing together While keeping the image I also notice that I couldnt stay focus on the exact image for a long period of time Regularly my mind would start to wonder and I would begin to think of other things For example while thinking about the image it would suddenly convert to thinking about the class and how other people are doing I would wonder what they were thinking about While performing this exercise I also notice that my other senses such as my hearing and feeling were more sensitive to noise and motion Because I always relied on my eyes to be aware of my surrounding my hearing and sense of feelings were rarely used I also noticed that the slights motion or noise would distract me I would easily lose focus from these types of distractions After repeated exercise of the white ring and circle in a black background I found that it was easier to maintain
