Meditation is an ancient practice or discipline in which the self is being induced to total relaxation, focus, and level of consciousness. It is the exercise of the human mind, which also benefits the human body. It is a practice that holds back a person to save at least 10 minutes a day of his or her busy schedule to just focus on his or her surrounding, her breath, her own self, the quietness around, the awareness of all things, and much-needed relaxation. This is a way of releasing stress and welcoming rejuvenated and positive vibes.
Some of the benefits of meditation are reduced stress, relieves pain, reduced high blood pressure risk, increased concentration and creativity, inner calmness, detachment from stressors, etc.
For those who are not yet familiar with the practice, let me warn you that this is not a simple endeavour. It takes practice and practice before one gets to be successful in achieving the benefits of meditation. The results do not happen over night. Read on as you learn how to do meditation for beginners.
Actually, the instructions are simple.
First, choose a quiet place, a place without disturbance. This may be your own bedroom or in the garden where the chirping of the birds is music to your ears.
Second, sit in upright position, like an Indian seat if possible, as long as you feel comfortable since this may take you not less than 10 minutes.
Third, as you close your eyes, be mindful of your breathing. Breathe slowly, deeply. Let your breathing guide you into total relaxation.
Fourth, as you feel getting calmer and relaxed, let go of your inhibitions. Focus on your purpose, like you are going to start your day full of positive vibes. Always meditate with a purpose. Let that purpose be the center of your focus. Focus on achieving that purpose. You’ll know that you have meditated successfully when you feel light and good about yourself and your surrounding. It is like waking up fro ma very beautiful dream.
Last, as you end the session, take a deep breath before opening your eyes.
As mentioned earlier, this takes practice. On your first day of meditation, you must learn how to feel relaxed and calm. To tell you frankly, this is one hard first step. You must be able to secure a technique on how to feel total relaxed before you even begin to concentrate on a particular purpose. Do not be in a hurry. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect.
