Yep, just like HeatBlast stated. I just finished responding to a thread on "Meditating" and "A Problem With Visualizat" My post has an alternative method of meditation that is both visualization and meditation together. Meditation is one of the basics to learn and practice to improve your spell-working. This alternative method of meditation has been around for about 20 years but, under utilized. This alternative method may help you in your quest for successful spell-working.
I hope this helps.
