MEDITATION- The Basics Of Meditation

with No Comments
One of the best ways to get in touch with yourself and your intuition is to begin practising meditation.
If your new to any meditation I suggest you start with doing some stretches first. Tight muscles, especially lower back, make it hard just to sit. You will feel the pull of your body when you strat to sit and breath. Then, either in the morning (which is usually an excellent time before the day begins) or later at night, sit in a quiet place. Choose a place where you won’t be disturbed. Even if this means getting up five mins earlier to begin your day well.
The simplest approach is to sit still, notice how your body feels and your mood. Then breathe in and out and note, where your breath can go, is it shallow or can you already feel your belly rise.
Just focus now on breathing in and out, slow long and deep breaths. Concentrate on the air coming into your lungs. Imagine you are sat on a beautiful mountain with pure clean air. When you breath out just breath any stresses and toxins. Toxins can accumulate in your body, so breath them out. Continue to breathe in and out, feel your stomach expand, So this slowly . As you breathe in and fall as you breathe out. That’s it! Try for five minutes each time per day to begin. Move towards ten minutes focusing on your breath is a great start
Some people sit in silence and others might use brain entrainment music. Basically try a few things and find what works for you. Look on YouTube and for guided visualisations or meditations. Think of for a specific purpose such as clearing your chakras, being more heart centred or relaxing the mind and body. There’s a lot out there just start with the basics then go from there .
A class can help you to stay focused and build your practice
