Meditation: The Ruling Key in Technology

5 Steps For a Successful Meditation

Meditation may be a very personal experience and you'll find that what works well for one person might not work well for you. At first, you'll question whether you're meditating correctly and if you're using the proper techniques. Just to alleviate your concerns there are no right or wrong ways to meditate. There are, however belongings you can do to organize yourself to urge the foremost out of your session.

1. Wear comfortable clothing: you'll want to wear something that's not binding and can not be distracting. Loose-fitting clothes that will allow your body to move and breathe freely are preferred. Loose-fitting organic cotton will work perfectly.

2. Find your spot: Find a spot where you feel peaceful and at ease. It must be a good energy spot that is both secure and free of distractions. Perhaps by a tree in your yard or a room that is soft and pleasing to the eye and senses. Regardless of what place you choose, you must be comfortable there. Most folks can sense an area that just feels right to them. There is no logical reason for this aside from it just feels right. Use your intuition and you'll know the proper place for you to meditate. As you progress you'll want to seek out different places to meditate. There are different energy patterns and different experiences to be found in several spots.

3. Choose the best position: There are several positions you can use and there is no hard and fast rule on the right one to use. I prefer to sit cross-legged on a soft thin pillow. In the beginning, it will be easier to sit Indian leg style without placing one of your feet on top of the opposite leg. As you gain flexibility you will be able to graduate to this more traditional style called the half lotus. More important than the seated style you use is to make sure you keep your back straight. It will be uncomfortable at first so don't get discouraged. If you'll only meditate for five minutes within the beginning then that's ok. Try increasing the time with each session and during a short amount of your time you'll be doing twenty minutes of meditation with no problem. It is also helpful if you can incorporate some yoga into your daily routine to help strengthen your core and unblock the energy points in your body. This will greatly increase the comfort and effectiveness of your sessions.

4. Choose a type of meditation: Rather than explain all the different methods of meditation I will suggest the one that I feel is the most effective for beginning meditation. Find some soothing music that you can listen to with a set of headphones. The music must be pleasing for you and not distracting. The music isn't the focus of the meditation but is employed rather as a tool to assist you to get into a deep meditative state. There are many meditation soundtracks available and you ought to be ready to find something that you simply wish to help enhance your experience. I would also recommend that music incorporate the use of binaural technology. This technology is a great adjunct to your program in that it will help you to achieve the correct brainwave state which will profoundly affect your sessions. Remember, music is simply a tool to assist you to get to the state of consciousness we are trying to find. You may find, as you get more experienced that you will not need the music to attain that state. You are training your body and mind on a specific feeling and soon you will be able to enter this state seamlessly at will. The state we are looking for is different for all of us but when you achieve it you will know.

5. Meditate on your chakras: There are seven main chakras points in your body, but we'll only meditate on three of them. This meditation technique directs our specialize in the Navel, Heart, and pineal eye Chakras. As you begin your session you'll begin by concentrating on your Navel chakra. You will place your specialize in this area of your body and nowhere else. If it helps you'll place two fingers on this chakra to assist you to focus your concentration on this area. If you discover your mind wandering, gently bring your focus back to the navel chakra. This chakra will generate an incredible amount of energy as you become better . You will spend about five minutes at first on each chakra. As you become more comfortable you will increase the time to ten minutes and then fifteen minutes. Include only the three chakras discussed and you will see that you will not need to waste your time on including the other chakras at this point. These three are quite powerful when opened and can induce profound experiences of consciousness. As you become an expert during this sort of meditation you'll want to experiment with the opposite chakras. That is completely up to you but I like to recommend this initiative. You must perfect this type of meditation before you'll hope to realize the advantages of meditating on the opposite chakras.
