Meditation is a very personal practice and there is no one-size-fits-all, but these general guidelines will help you along the way beautifully.
Meditation is far simpler and less complicated than most people think and the benefits can be astounding. If you haven’t ever tried it, why not give it a go…
On a daily basis our brains are full of simple as well as more complex thoughts. These thoughts fill our minds and overload us with emotion, anxiety, stress, worry and a general feeling of business. It’s not that all thoughts are negative, but a lot of thoughts travelling around our minds from one minute to the next, can be exhausting on a level we are not always aware.
The aim is to calm the storm within our minds and clear a path to peaceful, happy, and more positive thoughts. In most instances we meditate to clear our heads and hearts from that which hurts us and causes us pain or anxiety. In other words, we want to give our minds and body’s a rest, even if it is just for 20 min.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATING?
LET’S GET STARTED, in 4 easy steps….
There you go! You should feel calm and peaceful with no, or less, anxiety in your mind and body. It’s best to meditate every day. Start with 10 minutes and work up to 30min if you are able. You will feel re-charged and ready to take your next step. Remember to move gently from meditation into your day, taking the benefits of the meditation with you.
If you would like to take things a step further, here’s how…
Choose a mantra.
A mantra is a word or sentence that you say silently to yourself over and over during a meditation, to help focus your thoughts. Either you want to focus on what you are saying, i.e.: ‘I will only think happy thoughts today’. Or you simply use the mantra to stay centered and focused i.e.: ‘So Hum’ which means ‘I am’.
Repeating your mantra must be soft and gentle in your mind, it must not be forced.
If there is a specific goal you want to achieve or thought process you want to follow, a mantra will help focus your energy in this direction. Make sure your mantra is never too long and use your breath while repeating it. It must feel natural and personal.
Note * Meditation is a deeply spiritual practice and people study for many years to be masters and then train others in the field. There are many layers of consciousness, which can be achieved at various stages. This blog is a simple instruction on introducing entry-level yoga into your everyday life. Information has been gleaned from professionals and my own personal journey with meditation.
I told you it was far simpler than you may have thought. Life is busy and stressful, the more we are able to do that cleanses our bodies and minds, the better.
Yours in mindfulness
