I meditate on the Tree of Life, myself. I painted my own tree in the proper colour scheme, and went to town. of course, I already had all my correspondences down pat, so that helps. I started with Binah; nothing like jumping in feet-first!
Wine is strong, a king is stronger, women stronger still...but Truth shall conquer all.
I would have to say that I have always did a "3rd eye type" meditation, dissolved what I needed from the mind and then enjoyed the chi or good fortune syncronicities afterwards. I have never did yoga myself, but it has always interested me.
I have sort of developed my own way. But, a helpful suggestion might be "How Your Mind Can Keep You Well", from Roy Masters. Its a simplified, no fail method in my humble opinion. Thank You.
Some writers have observed that using oriental methods of meditation is not really suited to the western mind. Well, I used zen meditation techniques for some time with varying results. There is a wealth of western techniques but because of the baggage attached to words like "Christian" or "Catholic" they are often ignored. If you meditate to experience phenomena, to view the reality behind reality, then that wouldn't be the route I'd suggest.
If, however, the object of meditation is to find the Lost Word within, to know the Diety in some small way within a Christian context, then the Centering Prayer may be useful. In the Christian Orthodox tradition, the practice is called Hesychasm.
Finally, I don't know of any meditation technique that is specifically Masonic. However, if you have the opportunity, sit alone in a L room before or after a meeting for 10 or 15 minutes, stilling your thoughts as much as possible. With a little practice and particularly after degree work you may become aware of the energies released in a Masonic L.

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
