    I'm doing a walking meditation. My meditation takes me below my defence mechanisms to my highly responsive self. Yes, I am characterised by high responsiveness to internal and external stimulae. However I have learnt to inhibit my high responsiveness because it is socially unacceptable. So now with my walking meditation I am deliberately removing my defence mechanisms and releasing my highly responsive self. It's like trying to learn to ride on a 1,000cc motorcycle.

    I practice a form of meditation known as circle walking and another known as wu chi.

    Mole, this sounds like a positive thing for you. I hope you reap many rewards.

    meditater here

    lolz... tater...

    anyway I find if I sit down and focus my breathing I can observe as my thoughts pass. it helps when I'm overwhelmed with too many things going on at once. It helps me prioritize what is important and what is not. I'll also be upset over something said days ago but have so many other distractionary stressors piled on top that I'll forget why I was upset to begin with. Meditation helps me seek out the root causes and chill out. When I'm frustrated with something, it feels like I'm having a stroke with regard to my cognitive ability. My thoughts just seem to gridlock and I turn into bill o'reilly before he yelled "F it we're doin it live".

    i like to defragment. it allows me to have a clear perspective and continue to view things in a different way.
