This is both a guide and a challenge for you to receive some real, powerful benefits from meditation in just 30 days. The goal of the challenge is this; practice these tasks every day, for half an hour, for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days you should be able to perform a very interesting ‘trick’. The trick involves producing heat at will in the palm of your hand. By the end of the 30 days you will try focus energy onto your palm, place it over someone’s arm and they should feel warmth, and possibly the sensation that someone is touching them, even though you are not.
Some styles of meditations rely on complete silence, some employ the repetition of specific words or “mantras,” some offer guided imagery and/or affirmations, some focus on specific energy centers or “chakras,” some utilize specific sounds and music, some have very ancient roots, rituals, and religious traditions. And there are many more varieties and combinations. Some meditations focus primarily on relaxation and the well documented health benefits associated with this. Other meditations go beyond relaxation to help us reconnect with the deeper clarity, power, peace, and wholeness within us.
meditation is an easy technique. You do not have to worry about whether you are doing it right or wrong. That’s a wrong way to start your meditation. Avoid getting angry or frustrated with yourself and in your mind. If you need to stop your meditation, gently do it slowly. Do it smooth and not harsh. Enjoy first the state you built and do not forego of it as soon as possible. Repeat your zen Baltimore as needed. It will be very effective if done regularly. Do it always for a long period. It does not need to take many hours or every day. A 20-minute meditation is effective if done always.
So, as I have been meditating for a number of years now, and through learning different techniques and practicing successful meditation a number of a times every day, I thought it would be a good idea to let you in on some of the successful techniques I have learned in the knowledge that this information will help you to become a success yourself.
My fourth recommendation is this, be creative. Meditation does not have to be in the stereotypical lotus position, eyes closed, and mantra humming style. If it works, fantastic, but if it doesn’t don’t beat yourself up. I feel meditation is whatever brings you to higher states of awareness and promotes general well being. Take drawing or art for example, that state one achieves where ideas seem to flow freely from mind to paper could be described as active meditation. Another example is meditating on nature. Sit outside one day and just focus on your environment, notice every minute detail, but don’t analyze it, just perceive it as best you can through all your senses. Again do not get caught up in the whys and hows of meditation, instead find your own way.
Think about what you want to achieve from your meditation practice. Do your want to improve your health, or do you want to connect with your spirituality. Maybe you want to learn to focus or maybe you want to become more positive. No matter what your goal is, there are different meditations that can help you achieve it. But the first type of meditation you should learn is the basic breathing exercise. This is an easy but important type of meditation that you will use in any type of meditation but can also be practiced alone.
Meditation is NOT a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.
While meditation works for many individuals, the effects of this vary among each individual. Each person must just have to believe in what they are doing and have faith that it will do them good.
