What Is Meditation & How To Meditate

Meditation is a group of mental training techniques .You can use meditation to improve mental health and capacities, and also to help improve the physical health. Some of these techniques are very simple, so you can learn them from a book or an article; others require guidance by a qualified meditation teacher.

WHAT IS MEDITATION

Most techniques called meditation include these components:

1. You sit or lie in a relaxed position.
2. You breathe regularly. You breathe in deep enough to get enough oxygen. When you breathe out, you relax your muscles so that your lungs are well emptied, but without straining.
3. You stop thinking about everyday problems and matters.
4. You concentrate your thoughts upon some sound, some word you repeat, some image, some abstract concept or some feeling. Your whole attention should be pointed at the object you have chosen to concentrate upon.
5. If some foreign thoughts creep in, you just stop this foreign thought, and go back to the object of meditation.

The different meditation techniques differ according to the degree of concentration, and how foreign thoughts are handled. By some techniques, the objective is to concentrate so intensely that no foreign thoughts occur at all.

In other techniques, the concentration is more relaxed so that foreign thoughts easily pop up. When these foreign thoughts are discovered, one stops these and goes back to the pure meditation in a relaxed manner. Thoughts coming up, will often be about things you have forgotten or suppressed, and allow you to rediscover hidden memory material. This rediscovery will have a psycho-therapeutic effect.

THE EFFECTS OF MEDITATION

Meditation has the following effects:

1. Meditation will give you rest and recreation.
2. You learn to relax.
3. You learn to concentrate better on problem solving.
4. Meditation often has a good effect upon the blood pressure.
5. Meditation has beneficial effects upon inner body processes, like circulation, respiration and digestion.
6. Regular meditation will have a psycho-therapeutically effect.
7. Regular meditation will facilitate the immune system.
8. Meditation is usually pleasant.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYPNOSIS AND MEDITATION

Hypnosis may have some of the same relaxing and psycho-therapeutic effects as meditation. However, when you meditate you are in control yourself; by hypnosis you let some other person or some mechanical device control you. Also hypnosis will not have a training effect upon the ability to concentrate.

A SIMPLE FORM OF MEDITATION

Here is a simple form of meditation:

1. Sit in a good chair in a comfortable position.
2. Relax all your muscles as well as you can.
3. Stop thinking about anything, or at least try not to think about anything.
4. Breath out, relaxing all the muscles in your breathing apparatus.
5. Repeat the following in 10 – 20 minutes:

— Breath in so deep that you feel you get enough oxygen.
— Breath out, relaxing your chest and diaphragm completely.
— Every time you breathe out, think the word “one” or another simple word inside yourself. You should think the word in a prolonged manner, and so that you hear it inside you, but you should try to avoid using your mouth or voice.

6. If foreign thoughts come in, just stop these thoughts in a relaxed manner, and keep on concentrating upon the breathing and the word you repeat.

As you proceed through this meditation, you should feel steadily more relaxed in your mind and body, feel that you breathe steadily more effectively, and that the blood circulation throughout your body gets more efficient. You may also feel an increasing mental pleasure throughout the meditation.

THE EFFECTS OF MEDITATION UPON DISEASES

As any kind of training, meditation may be exaggerated so that you get tired and worn out. Therefore you should not meditate so long or so concentrated that you feel tired or mentally emptied.

Meditation may sometimes give problems for people suffering from mental diseases, epilepsy, serious heart problems or neurological diseases. On the other hand, meditation may be of help in the treatment of these and other conditions.

People suffering from such conditions should check out what effects the different kinds of meditation have on their own kind of health problems, before beginning to practice meditation, and be cautious if they choose to begin to meditate. It may be wise to learn meditation from an experienced teacher, psychologist or health worker that use meditation as a treatment module for the actual disease.

Why Affirmations Are Important For Inner Peace

 

Affirmations are self-talk statements & better presented to the subconscious. These fresh images are viewed as “credible” by the subconscious & are placed in the area of subconscious having to do with the power to enhance the ability to pull up particular powerful memories with less work. Through this special imagery a person can develop the inner tools for the correct mindset for gaining inner peace, letting the memories and images be transported to the here and now where they’re used for enhancing mindset which is crucial for inner peace.

 

Why Do We Need Affirmations For Inner Peace?

Oftentimes individuals believe these good and beneficial self talk memories are a false belief and don’t exist, but the subconscious recognizes where they’re located and will pull them ahead for inner peace.  These forms of affirmations make fresh neural tracts in the mind, enhancing the ability to “see” these fresh powerful images. Stale images related to negativity, weaknesses, deficiency of initiative, frail goal images and the ability to develop inner peace are decreased. When the mind discovers new affirmations the subconscious sees them as “tangible.”

You’ve likely observed a common element in those who are successful in business and in life. These winners and successful individuals tend to be enthusiastic and zealous, in all aspects of their lives. This exuberance can be infectious, and it tends to rub off on all those persons around them. A positive attitude and the might to turn that attitude into results are crucial to inner peace, both in business and life. You see, a positive attitude is a valuable asset, no matter what you are trying to do. You really ought to assume the habit of doing regular positive affirmations. Making positive affirmations a part of your daily function is a great way to alter your thoughts and help yourself be more peaceful.

It’s never too early or too late to begin this cycle of positive affirmations, and even those just beginning down a new road may benefit from a positive attitude. Even if the thing you’re trying to accomplish seems insignificant and you are not yet spiritually enlightened, it’s crucial to display a positive attitude, and not let negativity sneak in to steal your thunder. Remember that some of the most successful people began as not spiritually enlightened and worked their way into having inner peace. It truly is possible to work your way up from being not spiritually enlightened to being peaceful, but without positive affirmations and a victorious attitude, this move won’t be possible.

Steady positive affirmations are extremely crucial for those people who want to develop inner peace. Building inner peace is never easy, but it’s crucial to remember that those around you, from people you’re involved with to clients to competitors, feel your attitude, and utilize it as a cue. If you’re constantly complaining about the deficiency in knowing how to have spiritually enlightenment, the people around you will be less than energized. If, on the other hand, you’re constantly supplying positive affirmations to yourself and the people around you, even in the hardest of times, they’ll see your exuberance, learn from it, and utilize it as a cue to see you as truly peaceful. It truly does all come down to attitude; a positive mental attitude and positive affirmations can help your inner peace in ways too many to mention here.

Building Inner Strength

Unconsciously, we are forming habits every moment of our lives. Some are habits of a desirable nature; some are those of a most undesirable nature. Some, though not so bad in themselves, are exceedingly bad in their cumulative effects, and cause us at times much loss, much pain and anguish, while their opposites would, on the contrary, bring as much peace and joy, as well as a continually increasing power.

We have it within our power to determine at all times what types of habits shall take form in our lives? In other words, is habit-forming, character building, a matter of mere chance, or have we it within our own control? We have, entirely and absolutely. “I will be what I will to be,” can be said and should be said by every human soul.

After this has been bravely and determinedly said, and not only said, but fully inwardly realized, something yet remains. Something remains to be said regarding the great law underlying habit-forming, character building; for there is a simple, natural, and thoroughly scientific method that all should know.

A method whereby old, undesirable, earth-binding habits can be broken, and new, desirable, heaven lifting habits can be acquired, a method whereby life in part or in its totality can be changed, provided one is sufficiently in earnest to know and, knowing it, to apply the law.

Thought is the force underlying all. And what do we mean by this? Simply this: Your every act – every conscious act – is preceded by a thought. Your dominating thoughts determine your dominating actions. In the realm of our own minds we have absolute control, or we should have, and if at any time we have not, then there is a method by which we can gain control, and in the realm of the mind become thorough masters. In order to get to the very foundation of the matter, let us look to this for a moment. For if thought is always parent to our acts, habits, character, life, then it is first necessary that we know fully how to control our thoughts.

Here let us refer to that law of the mind which is the same as is the law in Connection with the reflex nerve system of the body, the law which says that whenever one does a certain thing in a certain way it is easier to do the same thing in the same way the next time, and still easier the next, and the next, and the next, until in time it comes to pass that no effort is required, or no effort worth speaking of; but on the opposite would require the effort.

The mind carries with it the power that perpetuates its own type of thought, the same as the body carries with it through the reflex nerve system the power which perpetuates and makes continually easier its own particular acts. Thus a simple effort to control one’s thoughts, a simple setting about it, even if at first failure is the result, and even if for a time failure seems to be about the only result, this will in time, bring him to the point of easy, full, and complete control.

Each one, can grow the power of determining, controlling his thought, the power of determining what types of thought he shall and what types he shall not entertain. Always keep this in mind, that every earnest effort along any line makes the end just a little easier for each succeeding effort, even if, apparent failure is the result of the earlier efforts. This is a case where even failure is success, for the failure is not in the effort, and every earnest effort adds an increment of power that will eventually accomplish the end aimed at. We can, then, gain the full and complete power of determining what character, what type of thoughts we entertain.

Here are some examples. There is a man, the cashier of a large mercantile establishment, or cashier of a bank. In his morning paper he reads of a man who has become suddenly rich, has made a fortune of half a million or a million dollars in a few hours through speculation on the stock market. Perhaps he has seen an account of another man who has done practically the same thing lately. He is not quite wise enough, however, to comprehend the fact that when he reads of one or two cases of this kind he could find, were he to look into the matter carefully, one or two hundred cases of men who have lost all they had in the same way.

A negative thought can be put out of the mind easier and more successfully, not by dwelling upon it, but by throwing the mind on to some positive object. This may be, for example, the ideal of full and perfect self-mastery, or it may be something of a nature entirely distinct from the thought which presents itself, something to which the mind goes easily and naturally. This will in time become the absorbing thought in the mind, and the danger is past. This same course of action repeated will gradually grow the power of putting into the mind those objects of thought one most desires. The result will be that as time passes the negative thoughts will present itself less and less, and when it does present itself it can be put out of the mind more easily each succeeding time, until the time comes when it can be put out without difficulty, and eventually the time will come when the thought will enter the mind no more at all.

There is nothing more true in connection with human life than that we grow into the likeness of those things we contemplate. Literally and scientifically and necessarily true is it that “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The “is” part is his character. His character is the sum total of his habits. His habits have been formed by· his conscious acts; but every conscious act is, as we have found, preceded by a thought. And so we have it – thought on the one hand, character, life, and destiny on the other. And simple it becomes when we bear in mind that it is simply the thought of the present moment, and the next moment when it is upon us, and then the next, and so on through all time.

One can in this way attain to whatever ideals he would attain to. Two steps are necessary: first, as the days pass, to form one’s ideals; and second, to follow them continually, whatever may arise, wherever they may lead him. Always remember that the great and strong character is the one who is ever ready to sacrifice the present pleasure for the future good.

In this, however, we will find the highest pleasure, for in this the only real pleasure lies. He who would find it by any short cuts, or by entering upon any other paths, will inevitably find that his last state is always worse than his first; and if he proceed upon paths other than these he will find that he will never find real and lasting pleasure at all.

Each of us must work out his own problems. Each must grow the insight that will enable him to see what the causes are that have brought the unfavorable conditions into his life; each must grow the strength that will enable him to face these conditions, and to set into operation forces that will bring about a different set of conditions.

We might help one another by way of suggestion, by way of bringing to one another a knowledge of certain higher laws and forces — laws and forces that will make it easier to do that which we want to do. The doing, however, must be done by each one for himself. And so the way to get out of any conditioning we have got into, either knowingly or inadvertently, is to take time to look the conditions squarely in the face, and to find the law whereby they have come about. And when we have discovered the law, the thing to do is not to rebel against it, not to resist it, but to go with it by working in harmony with it.

Being Grateful

Is being grateful part of your daily routine? Do you say “Thank You” for even the simplest things that you receive? If not, then, it is never too late for you to finally realize the essence of being grateful for all the things in your life.

The True Essence of Being Grateful

Whether you feel angry, moody, jealous or depressed recently or you feel that your life is full of negativity at this very moment, it is really never too late for you to enjoy the numerous benefits that being grateful has to offer.

In fact, you can take a few minutes any time and be thankful for the things that exist in your life, good or bad, happy or sad, for these can all make you grow into the kind of person that you are.

Seeing through the bad times and still being thankful might not really be easy but after you have surpassed them and you look back at your life’s darkest moments, you will surely appreciate the thing that you got from it = a tougher skin, a useful lesson or even just the mere experience which can help you in making better choices in the near future.

So, what are the benefits that you can get when you are grateful?

This helps you to be in the present, allowing you to notice the things that you have and stopping in order to acknowledge all of them. It can be as simple as having a pizza for lunch, the company of a classmate, or even the ability to hear.

Being grateful can generate good vibes. When applied to positive thinking, quantum physics state that your thoughts’ vibration can modify and affect the reality that surrounds you. It has been said that the initial 17 seconds of your thoughts are the most powerful, creating sufficient energy needed for starting attracting the things you are thinking of to come to your life.

When you are grateful, you have the power to change your mood almost immediately from negative into positive. Positive energy and good feelings arise once you start to acknowledge the things you are thankful for. However, there are some instances when your negative emotions start ruling you and affecting your mood. During these cases, it can be a bit hard for you to be actually grateful for anything.

When this situation befalls you, just think of this thought: things can always be much worst.
Whatever kind of circumstances you might be in, there is a chance that these can become way more difficult than what you are in right now. Be thankful that you are not in that “worst” part and try looking at things in a more positive light.

For instance, your budget probably doesn’t allow you to get a new pair of shoes but still, you have 5 other pairs when the other girl in your class doesn’t even have one.

You will finally be able to see the true essence of being grateful once you come to the realization that you can actually use your thankful feelings to achieve the things that you want. Be thankful today and expect for more blessings tomorrow.

A Better Life

 

“In the end, it is not the years in your life that counts – it is the life in your years.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

There are several things you have to do and changes you have to go through in order to have a better life. After all, having a life that you can be proud of, no matter the length, is more than enough of an accomplishment. These tips though, may sound so common and normal that you will be saying to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

The sad thing is that despite their being “common and normal” many people tend to forget them, or worse, simply ignore them. Simple as the following tips are, they are powerful enough to make both little and huge changes that can have an impact in your life.

1. Know what you want to do with your life. What do you want to achieve in your life? Do you want to be financially stable? Do you want to have a happy family? Do you want a mansion and a sports car? Whatever it is, knowing what you want in life is crucial. This is because long-term goals give your life direction and meaning, as well as provides you with the needed motivation to work diligently and industriously.

2. Know how much you don’t know. Acknowledge the fact that you do not know everything. Acknowledging this will fuel your desire to learn more. When you have that desire, you will find that as you learn, you become a little better every single day.

3. Clean the clutter in your home. Having a clean abode helps to make your life easier. For one, you will find that you a have a more relaxing home to come to after a hard day’s work.

4. Clean the clutter in your mind. When you have a clean home, you should strive to make your mind clutter free as well. This means that you have to learn to focus on the important things and do away with the less important ones. Once you do this, you will immediately feel less burdened by troublesome thoughts.

5. Share the love with others. Volunteer for your local community’s soup kitchen or maybe help in the clean up drive, or maybe you can read for kids in the local library. This is one way of doing something good for others, your community, and yourself. Helping others gives one a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment that is rarely found in other things.

6. When you reminisce about your life, think about the good things. Of course, you can think about the negative things too, but only to serve as your motivation to do and become better. Remember all the good you have done no matter how simple and unimportant they may seem, like picking up trash along the way home or maybe helping an old lady cross the street. When it comes to doing good, even the smallest of things count.

7. Don’t try to do too much at once. Life can be very hectic nowadays as you juggle work with home and so on. Sure, you may think that you will be able to accomplish more by doing several things at once, but such is not always the case. Take things one at a time – remember, the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time.

8. Reward yourself. When you know you did something worthwhile today, give yourself a gift. Rewards need not be something expensive, but even simple things that you enjoy like a hot cup of coffee at the coffee shop. It is not the price after all, but rather the feeling of achievement and fulfillment that resulted in the reward.

9. Strive to make today better than yesterday. If helping one old lady cross the street yesterday made you feel good about yourself, how would helping two old ladies today make you feel? See, the more good you do, the better you will feel about yourself.

10. Don’t forget that the focus is you. Helping others is necessary in order to become a better person, but do remember that if helping and pleasing everybody is becoming stressful, then maybe it is time to take a little step backwards. Remember that you cannot please every single person you come across with.

11. Be adventurous and take a risk. This is a necessary part of life, as it means that you should try to get out of your comfort zone from time to time. This widens your horizon and makes you more open-minded. Think of it as a way of opening yourself up to new and better opportunities.

12. Do something you truly enjoy. If you have been thinking about doing something for a long time (like starting a new hobby) but have been caught up in work and life, then try to make time for it. Reorganize your schedule and make plans – now. It provides a wonderful distraction from all the hustle and bustle of life.

13. Find inspiration. Inspiration is necessary to keep you going. Without it, your motivation will wane and you will end up back in square one. Some people find inspiration from the bible, while others find inspiration in characters they find in nonfiction novels and biographies or autobiographies. Some people even find inspiration from fictional characters in fiction novels.

14. If you believe that you are not seeing any improvement, then seeking professional help may be necessary. Alternatively, sometimes, joining an anonymous club is a good way of finding help and fulfillment. It allows you to connect to people who knows and experienced what you are going through.

15. Don’t waste money on comfort items. Don’t buy unnecessary material things in order to make yourself feel good. Instead, focus your attention and money to building a hobby. This way, you can save yourself from building a collection of needless clutter. Besides, the comforting effects of these items wane off quickly, making you feel regretful soon after.

Taking care of your self is an important factor in having a wonderful life. Every single day, we find ourselves in situations that are emotionally and consequently mentally straining and draining, be it stress from the workplace or home. Worse, you can find yourself wallowing in depression, which does not in any way contribute to you achieving that kind of life that you want. As such, it is important that you pay close attention to your emotional health, since not doing so only sets you back and causes a myriad of problems.
