Many people who want to relieve their thoughts of everyday troubles and stress resort to meditation. Is there, however, a 100% effective meditation technique? There are different meditation methods available, some of which are highly specific and comprehensive, but there are a few processes that must be followed regardless of the method chosen: breathing, relaxing, and meditation itself. They’ve arrived!
The first thing you should understand is that there is no good meditation practice that does not include adequate breathing.
Essentially, you must concentrate on your breathing, inhaling slowly yet deeply and exhaling as slowly as possible but without exertion. Consider that the air is clean and pure, that it comes directly from God, the flawless nature, or other positive, ideal sources. Furthermore, try to imagine that your breathing is cleansing your whole body and assisting your body in loosening up. Some people find it helpful to attempt to breathe as slowly as possible while also breathing as silently as possible – imagine you’re “whispering” your breathing.
How to Unwind
Meditation and relaxation go hand in hand and rely on each other, so make sure you’re ready to embark on a sophisticated and integrated meditation exercises program, one that is founded on prior relaxation and detachment from anxieties and issues. But how can you ensure that you get the necessary degree of relaxation? First and foremost, you must be surrounded by a friendly, inviting, and intimate atmosphere that allows you to rest and meditate.
Choose the location that makes you the most at ease and comfortable.
The variety of meditation tools and methods available allows you to choose the one that is best for you. However, one meditation approach seems to be particularly popular and simply applicable: visualization meditation. “What should you visualize?” is the sole question here. The solution is simple: picture the one thing that makes you feel comfortable, joyful, fulfilled, or any other sensation you prefer.
Basically, it may be anything: a past event, a future event, a relaxing activity, a dream, a vacation to an exotic island or, why not, to your own room or house (the place where you feel safest and best), a natural element, your loved ones, and the list goes on and on.
When you are thinking or visualizing the chosen moment or element, you must allow all of its beauty to penetrate you, you must be sensitive to all of the stimuli that it provides, and you must appreciate it in all of its forms. Observe your chosen element carefully and deliberately, paying attention to the subtleties. Live the feelings it evokes with passion, and you will have a high-quality meditation session.
Once you’ve begun to meditate, make sure you practice your meditation method every day or at least every other day, and that you follow the instructions above to get the desired outcomes. Remember that meditation is the path to greater health, better sleep, better attention, and a better life in general, so those 10 minutes every day are well spent!
