Meditation is the path to a successful life. This technique was appreciated by millions of people in the world. Humanity has got rid of the fallacy that meditation implies belief in the Vedic religion and realized that the technique is available to everyone. Now the question arises - how to learn to meditate? What you need to know to meditation was successful and brought the result? There is nothing difficult in this, you just need to be able to free the mind from extraneous disturbing thoughts and be able to concentrate on one question. Consider the rules in detail.
The value of meditation in human life
Why does meditation bring results, and a person’s life begins to change for the better? Because during practice, the subconscious is activated - the main corrector of our fate. In meditation, the spiritual forces of man and the powers of outer space are combined. It is a powerful technique for transforming fate and changing circumstances.
What newcomers need to know about meditation? It is carried out in a specific state, which is called the alpha state. It can be compared with the predsonny, when the mind of a person stopped active work on information processing and prepared for rest. The man is not sleeping yet, but he is not awake actively. The alpha state is replaced by a theta state, which happens either immediately upon waking up, or at the moment of falling asleep. This is a deeper state of mind, but we will use the alpha level in meditation.
Using the alpha state you can achieve the following results:
- change the direction of life;
- heal from many diseases;
- improve your body;
- get rid of unnecessary reflections;
- calm the nervous system;
- get rid of depression;
- attract luck, abundance and love in your life.
Many women have managed to lose weight through the practice of meditation, and this is real. The only condition is that you need to meditate constantly, that is, to make the practice a part of your life.
How to conduct meditation at home? First of all, you should learn the basics of spiritual practice in order to be aware of the material being studied. Then you need to realize that for successful meditation you should:
- have patience;
- learn to be silent;
- think in a positive way.
What does it mean to be patient? Spiritual practices do not tolerate vanity and blinking of thoughts. If you did one meditation and expect to get a result right away, this practice is not for you. During meditations, thin human bodies are rearranged, and this process can be accompanied by a powerful release of energy. Your limbs may go numb while meditating and even dizzy. However, you should not give up the practice half way - show patience and everything will work out.
What is silence? It is silence. It is in silence that one can hear or sense the necessary answer to an exciting question. Meditations are conducted in complete silence and no fuss. You must be able to dive into the inner world in order to find the necessary information there. You should also not draw the attention of others to your practices, especially to be in the same room with them during meditations. You must be left alone with the universe.
The benefits of positive thinking are known to all. Thought is creative or destructive energy. If during meditation you direct the thought in a positive direction, and after practice you allow yourself to think destructively, then there will be no benefit from your activities. Therefore, try to stay constantly in a positive mood, even if you are silent.
Before you begin to meditate, you need to learn the basic types of meditations and correct postures. There are many types of meditations. Among them are several main areas:
- relaxing techniques;
- techniques using concentration;
- technology using visualization;
- breathing techniques;
- analytical techniques;
- dynamic meditation.
To choose the type of meditation you need, you need to realize what it is for. If you need to tidy up your nerves and calm down, meditation using breathing techniques will do. If you need to understand the cause of failure, analytical meditation will do. If you want to achieve your goal, you need to use a technique with a concentration on the object under study.
Types of meditation can be combined with each other. For example, the breathing technique can be combined with concentration. You concentrate on the process of breathing, getting rid of nervous tension and wandering negative thoughts. Awareness of all types of practice will come with experience. The main thing is not to forget to meditate regularly.
How to conduct dynamic meditation, and what is it? This is meditation in motion. For example, you walk down the street and control every step - feel the touch of the foot to the ground, the rhythm of movement, the rhythm of breathing in the process of walking. This technique teaches awareness and control over your body. After practice, you will be less likely to do anything “on the machine”, mechanically. And the level of your spiritual development depends on awareness.
Posture for meditation
To meditate correctly, you need to master asanas. What poses are most suitable for beginners at home? The main condition for the correct posture:
- straight spine;
- relaxed muscles;
The first meditations can be carried out on a chair with a flat back. Then you can master the pose of a half lotus - to do this, sit on a small pillow on the floor. Some meditations are done lying on the couch, but they are designed to relax the body and mind. Remember that lying on the couch you can fall asleep. However, if your goal is relaxation and stress relief, then sleep is a desirable phenomenon.
Meditation to correct situations should be carried out with a straight back.
Remember that a straight spine is the key to the effectiveness of spiritual practice.
It is through the straight spine that cosmic energies flow - they enter the crown of the head and exit to the tailbone area. On the correct postures you need to read the relevant material.
If you have problems with your back or leg joints, you can do meditation sitting on a chair. Train your back muscles to keep your spine steady. Over time, the muscles will strengthen, and you will not experience discomfort.
How much time is spent in meditations? It depends on the task. Yogis can meditate for hours, but a beginner can practice a few minutes a day. Then you can increase the time - guided by well-being.
What can prevent successful meditation? First of all, fussy thoughts. Therefore, the first meditations should be devoted specifically to mental discipline and control of breathing. To calm the mind, you can use the following exercises:
- meditation on a candle;
- breath meditation;
- meditation on the pendulum.
These exercises not only discipline thoughts, but also teach concentration. Light a candle and concentrate on its flame. Think only about the flame of a candle or set a goal to get rid of the negative through a candle. Look at the flame and repeat one phrase: I am calm. You can say other words, it does not matter. First meditate for 10-15 minutes, then increase the time.
Breathing meditation is not difficult to perform. You just concentrate on the physiological process - you feel the inhalation of air, filling the lungs with air, holding your breath, exhaling. Watch the process as a researcher. The time of the practice should be increased gradually. Simple breathing meditation can completely relieve depression if it is done regularly.
The same goes for the pendulum. You focus on the swinging object. It can be a clock with a fight, if they are not there - watch the second hand. The main thing is not to be distracted. If extraneous thoughts begin to appear, return to the arrow - thoughts will leave.
In short, what a meditator should know about.
