Learning the process of meditation is the key to knowing one’s self better. True, people try to learn the methods, the process, in order to better deal with the stressful situations that continually beset them everyday, but it is also an opportunity for knowing one’s self more. This will make it easier for any individual to find the peace and the calmness that lies within, which is also essential to being able to deal with the problems and the troubles that prove to be so troubling and distracting. In the midst of all the troubles and distracting situations, any person would undoubtedly want some respite, and meditation should be able to provide that and more.
During the time when I was personally troubled myself, I sought possible solutions to my problems. In the course of searching for the right one, the one that would ultimately suit me, I inevitably tried out many different types of solutions. The problem was that none of the ones I previously tried really worked for me. Then I stumbled upon meditation, and partly out of curiosity and partly out of desperation, I tried it. It actually came as a surprise to me that I immediately liked it, and vowed to do it regularly to help me relieve myself of stress.
Guided Meditation for Me
Ever since I first learned how to meditate, I have been doing guided meditation. It was perfect for me since it was a way of focusing the mind completely, inwardly if it was at all needed, especially if the surroundings still have some amount of distractions, even though it might already be minimal. Deep relaxation is what I got from it, which was what really convinced to continue doing guided meditation, and to set aside other means of relaxation as secondary activities to my meditation. Indeed, when I learned how to do guided meditation, I became a changed person, one who is more self aware, one who is more attuned to what my inner self and consciousness is able to offer.
With guided meditation, the real purpose is to get away from the troubling, busy thoughts that stress us out. It would help through visualizing inner thoughts of serenity and ideal peacefulness, which up to that point has been quite elusive to you. Through guided meditation however, it will all be possible, as well as a new and much better view of life and how to deal with whatever comes our way in the future.
