More Answers to “any meditation techniques advice?“First…..earplugs. Yes I know its weird but it reduces outside stimuli and its not that obvious. Also if you’re brave enough a face mask but thats up to you. Anyways when you close your eyes imagine black and black only and then imagine a loving ray like the sun enveloping and warming your body. It usually works for me
I got a deal on limewire of tibetan sound bowls, I love it and you can drive with it, doesn’t put you to sleep. I got the one song and repeated it 6 times, 74 minutes I love it to open and feel energy
What a lovely way to commute:)I would recommend observing your breath during inhalations and exhalations. And then slowly visualise a golden light enveloping you. Chanting mantras in your head also work.You might like to read the works of Shakti Gawain or enrol in Yoga.Good Luck!
Breathe in the words, “I Love You” and exhale the name of “Jesus”, soooo awsome it works!
Affirmations; repeat over and over.. What ever you want. Money? then you’ll say; Money comes to me effortlessly. Money is in my pocket. I have 50 000 by the end of this year… or what ever you need… it works.
The whole aim of meditation is,1. to calm your mind, and2. to focus the mind on one thing.The mind of a normal person is like an uncontrolled monkey jumping from one thought to another. To process all these thoughts a lot of body energy is used. Thus if your mind cease to process thoughts you will be saving a lot of body energy which can be used to cure a lot of ailments in your body. That is why a person who continues to meditate regularly even gets a nice body complexion.Anapana or concentration on the breath is the best form of meditation.If you sit down and close your eyes you will notice that your mind is jumping from one thought to another. Even though you want to concentrate on your breath you will find other thoughts also coming in between.In learning to meditate you must first learn to calm your mind. You do this by following every thought that comes into you mind. You must be like a Manager of a Hotel who stands at the entrance and observes the customers coming in. Without getting attached to the thoughts try to observe them. You will find that a thought comes in and that it goes nowhere and another thought follows it – try following that too – with same results. This way you will find that your thoughts gradually subside. Do not try to force out your thoughts.Of course do not expect results in one or two days. Practise it for at least 40 minutes every day for at least 2 months you find that you have ‘killed’ your train of thoughts. I have practised for 1 1/2 years and still vagrant thoughts come in. Thereafter start concentrating on your breath. Notice the breath coming in and going out. You should not concentrate only on the tip of your nose. Notice the breath coming in and thereafter your lungs getting filled and then gradually exhaling the breath. After you finish that for the day start to think of a person or several persons whom you hate most. Having those people in mind start to think in a compassionate manner “may he be healthy, may he be happy, may he go up in life, may he live long”. Keep on doing this for about 10 minutes a day for a few months you will find that you do not get angry even when you have to get angry.You should be able to get some guidance from the following sites,1. http://www.dhamma.org/vipassan.htm/ http://www.meditationexpert.com/ and click on the free articles on yoga meditation – it includes articles on all types of meditations including christian and muslim meditation. meditation tapes on the market are great. you are also download meditation music on the internet as well. An actual technique, tried this. imagine your feet planted down on the floor, be aware of your breathing, as you are breathing inward, imagine the mother earth’s energy is transported into your body through your feet, slowly, from your feet and upward. imagine the energy is circulating your body. As you are breathing outward, all the used up energy, frustrations, and etc is released into the soil and out. do this repeatly until you are ready to go. I hope this helps.
