I have all these books on Pelvic Pain. They all suggest some form of meditation. Headache in the Pelvis has a zillion pages just on meditation which is the core to their program. For months I cut out articles about various ways to mediate but continued to drag my feet on doing this. I started walking with a friend who meditates. She told me how she did it and what she felt were the benefits. She copied a tape for me to get started(which I already had several). I already had the breathing down so it was just another simple step forward. I have been mediating for maybe 6 months. I do it first thing in the morning before anything else except going to the bathroom. I found the more I did it the longer I wanted to do it. It was such wonderful deep relaxation. I set the alarm on my cell phone. I started out with 10 minutes then I wanted it to be longer and longer. I also found that the time flewwwwww by. Plus my pain would almost disappear. I am finding that my list of sad, angry, or afraid events is getting longer and longer every day. I find that the little "tidbits of memory" have ended up being extremely important to my understanding of my childhood experiences.
