Meditation must be practiced. There’s just so much you can learn about meditation, and at any stage, if you would like to enjoy the benefits of meditation, you merely have to put aside time to really do it.
And meditation doesn’t need to be complex. If you follow these 3 easy steps, you may start meditating now.
Fist step. Find a quiet place where you could be lonely and stay undisturbed for approximately 15-30 minutes.
Regardless of what you have going on in your own life; decide that this is going to be your own time. Unless it’s an emergency, nothing else is more significant than the 15-30 minutes you’ll spend meditating.
Second step. Close your eyes, and start focusing on your breath.
As every breath goes in repeat silently to yourself, “I’m breathing” As you exhale, repeat to yourself, “I am breathing out.” Keep doing so until you feel that your breath slowing your brain getting more still. If you’re experiencing trouble with thoughts chatter, simply detect it by saying to yourself, “I’m thinking,” but don’t judge yourself or becoming lost in mind chatter. Keep returning to an own breath.
In case you have something that is troubling you in the afternoon, at this time you may start using your breath to operate it from your system. As you become more relaxed and concentrated, with each in breath state quietly “I’m breathing in peace and love,” and every out breath say quietly, “I’m breathing out anger, or sadness, or anxiety,” whatever is bothering you. Try this for a little while till you believe that your brain is growing calm and still as the surface of a pond on a gorgeous summer day.
Third step. Affirmations and Prayer.
The last step is to start to transform your head through focused intention. One Mind Dharma is a superb website, but I think that the real aim of meditation is transformation. As soon as you put in the silence, you’ve crossed a door into the domain of endless mind. This kingdom of boundless head is what I call the ability of the Spirit. This kingdom of boundless head is a power of amazing potency, and when used rightly can start to transform you and your own life out of one of trial and struggle, to a lifetime of boundless goodness and success.
