In this quick four part trip, we learn how to mediate. You can start to clear your mind and unclutter your life. Mediation is about a inner journey that is both personal and enlightening. It allows us to reach in and communicate with our most inner spirit or essence, allowing us, if we are persistent, to view the world and people around us in a different way.
Through regular practice daily, you can open the channel of guidance and energy. The longer and more often you practice the deeper and more relaxed you will become. In the beginning the logic part of your mind will try to take over and hijack your experience. When this happens acknowledge it and release your conscience from those day to day worries and concentrate for example on your regular deep breathing.
1. Detach from the World.
You need to be able to pull yourself away from all your worldly worries and concerns, release any distractions and go into yourself and away from the outside physical world. Turn off all phones and ringers and emails. At first the mind will be flooded with all sorts of worries and concerns. Your mind (Our Mental Brain) does not like losing control over our body, so it will fight to retain control. Stick to it and you will succeed.
2. Relax to Go Deeper.
Learn to relax your body and let go your fears and anxiety’s. Control your breathing and slowly bring your attention into yourself. Doing mediation regularly allows the body to take over from the mind quicker, allowing you into the deeper areas of your inner knowledge faster. Even to the point of mediating on a busy bus or train, after regular practice you can go down quite fast and get away from the stress and pressures of life. Time out so to speak. Nature music relaxing CD’s or guided mediation tapes are excellent ways to start your journey and still your mind and go down deep.
As you open up your energy we go into a receptive state where we can be affected by energys around us or any other lower type energy. We need to ask for protection through our guides or God, Buddha or what entity or worship is important to you.(More on this to come later). Working through love, wisdom and understanding is very important, as is intent. Heard the saying you attract what you put out! Well this stands true in Mediation.
4. Focus and Concentration and Practice .
This is the foundation of any true Meditative practice. as with any pursuit we need to focus on our goal, whether through breathe or other medium to get our mind and body used to reaching the deeper states quickly and easier. By continued and regular mediation our mind and body will follow and a peaceful stress less state should follow.
Having a meditative CD or Tape is a good way to start or even some quiet soft music you like. It a personal journey, so you play what you find peaceful. Good luck and sucess to a more enlightened and peaceful life.
