    Hi there
    I recently realised that I have aphantasia, and suddenly it made sense why years of trying guided meditations and visualisations haven’t ever felt very satisfying to me. Do you have any recommendations of approaches that may work? Thanks!

      Hi Cleona,
      Often for people who have aphantasia focusing on physical body sensations is usually much more effective.
      During a guided meditation, one could focus on for example how trees make you feel when you are around them.
      Otherwise, there is usually some form of internal awareness that is still present in our mind. This awareness could be a feeling of “knowing” or being reminded of certain memories.
      A way to tune into how your mind works, is to be aware of what you do if you’re planning your day or thinking about what you have to do later. However your mind works to bring up those concepts is very likely to be a similar way for you to meditate.
      I hope that made sense!
      Thank you for your question.
