Hey all, recently I've been wondering about my meditation practice. I can't seem to decide which of the following focus points I want to focus on:
1. Focusing on my breath -> mind wanders very quickly but i get to "train" the mental muscle more often by getting back to the breath
2. Focusing on counting my breaths -> I can focus on counting much better (I imagine the breath as a wave that washes the current number to and away from me) so that I don't have to start over during the entire meditation and feel like I am able to focus more
Now my dilemma is that I feel like both options have their validity for different aspects of life but I don't want to keep switching between styles every session.
Another point I have been thinking about is that these two styles seem like training for DILDs (catching yourself on autopilot, even though it is nothing observational) and WILDs (or at least for the induction when you want to keep focusing on the technique you are using during WBTB).
Do you have any experiences or tips, Lucid Dreaming or generally related? Would love to hear some feedback :)
