How to Meditate
How to meditate depends on your lifestyle. There are as many styles as there are meditators. You don't have to be an experienced meditator to gain the benefits. You don't even need to know how to sit like a Yogi. A firm chair will do. Try it sometimes lying down. Try whichever positon suits you until you are comfortable with recomended positons for various types of meditation.
The plan is to become a keen observer of life.
There are countless ways of jump-starting your spiritual life, such as participating in organized religion, meditation, yoga, prayer, quiet introspection, communing with nature and expressing gratitude. But behind every outlet is the most important element of igniting your spirituality: you
The key goal of meditation is to still the mind. Before commencing, take a preview of your day. If you are doing a morning meditation, think of your day ahead. If an evening one, review the day activities. Were there or are there issues of high concern? Are these issues likely to interfere with your meditation? Just notice them and don't dwell on them. If anything just bless them as lessons learnt if there are of high concern, or as to do things or activities.
On the other hand if they are nice things, bless them and carry that happiness with you to your meditation without too much attention.
1. Find a confortable place and a comforatble chair. An upright one is better
2. Sit with your back upright with your stomach pushed out a little (gently) to allow the lungs a lot of freedom
3. When you are ready, start with 3 deep breathes
4. Keep the happy thought of being happy and relaxed
5. Become aware of your breath as it goes in, out, in, out, in,
6. Form a simple rhythm: in, out and keep listening to it
7. If a thought comes to your observation, notice it, don't shrug it off, it will only keep coming, it wants to be noticed. observe it and let it go by saying (thought not words) something like Yeah, I see that that, or i hear you. then let it go
8. Focus on your breath, that is what is most important
9. When you are ready to end your session, just say (think) to yourself, " I am ready to end" Then count 3 deep breaths and end
To get more out of your sessions, plan them ahead. What do you want to meditate on? When, How?
