Meditation helps you to have high energy level which reduces your stress. Meditation heals all physical, mental, emotional diseases. There is no disease which can’t be healed through meditation. Meditation helps psychologically and physically. It helps to get rid of stress, tension, fears, phobias, depression, anxiety, blood pressure, heart diseases or any other physical or mental or emotional diseases.
The body is the coarsest aspect of the mind and the easiest to train. If your posture is relaxed yet upright, this influences the mind to become the same. Correct posture is the basis of mindfulness baltimore and is very important to successful meditation. Whether sitting on a chair or on the floor with crossed legs, sit with your spine and neck upright. To keep your neck straight you can tuck the chin in very slightly. If your spine is not erect, this will influence the mind negatively so your mind will tend to wander and you may fall asleep.
Before that though I’m sure you have a few questions. The most common questions I am asked are “How often/long should I meditate?” and “What does meditation feel like?”. I’ll answer the last question first. There are a vast number of meditation exercises and the feelings they conjure can vary. Typically though meditation feels deeply relaxing, almost as if you are emptying your mind of any negative thoughts or feelings you’ve picked up throughout the day. I have been meditating for many years now and I often find now that I am so engrossed in my meditation that I have to take a moment to shift my awareness to my body, as it feels like it has disappeared! Of course it hasn’t, and this isn’t something you are likely to experience at first.
Beyond this, understand that “expectation” can be a bit of a hindrance to meditation. When we are “looking” for a particular experience or outcome, we tend to “close” our energy. Expecting, like efforting, engages the mind and can keep us from the experience we actually need. Again, it’s often best simply to be patient and to “open” to the energy of your meditation.
Correlate your pace with your breathing, not the other way around. Just breathe naturally, and follow your breath. As you move, you will find that meditative state where your mind becomes calm, even though you are moving. The key is to just focus on your breath and walk in rhythm with it. As with regular meditation, thoughts will come. Don’t fight them or be annoyed with them. Simply allow your attention to go back to your breathing. Follow your breath. Focus your attention on that walking and breathing rhythm.
It Improves Patience: Life often feels frantic with no time to write. The stress builds and you feel emotional overload. Your tolerance level plummets. You lose your temper; you get angry. Impatiences is a curse that affects many in our culture of quick fixes and ego trips. Meditation is a great antidote. It slows you down and allows you time to pause awhile by redirected your mind. You become kinder towards yourself and others. You let go of the impulse to lash out and allow yourself time to enjoy life’s journey.
A way to prepare yourself to have the mind be relatively ’empty’ so you can focus within is to write down all the present thoughts you have, things you are trying to remember, things unresolves from the day perhaps. Just calmly sit and write all thoughts down until you mind feels relatively empty and it certainly is not trying to “hold or remember” any information or to do’s.
So that’s it, follow the tips above and hopefully, like me, you will soon find you are able to have a successful meditation every single time. And in actual fact as you practice daily, you will naturally become more accomplished with your meditation techniques anyway.
