Learning to meditate can be incredibly easy, provided you have the right kind of guidance. Most people have a belief that meditating is difficult or challenging, and thus they go into it with a very limiting perspective which holds them back. Once you understand that it is actually incredibly easy, incredibly natural, then you free yourself up to flow into it with a great deal of ease.
There are realistically two main factors which are important when you are learning how to meditate, focus and comfort. When you feel comfortable, warm enough, with clothing that is just right for you so that you are at ease physically, as much as possible at least, you can concentrate with greater ease. When you can focus effectively you can keep your mind where it needs to be with greater ease, and thus concentrate on your meditation.
There are types of meditative practice where allowing your mind to roam is encouraged, both Mindfulness and the Soto style of Zen in part encourage this, with growth coming through your detachment from thoughts and from the learnings and belief changes that those thoughts bring through reflection. As a beginner the pursuit of of calmness and real relaxation is perhaps the best place to start.
Keep It Simple – How To Meditate For Beginners
One of the easiest and most calming things you can do when you are learning how to meditate is focus on your breathing. Holding your attention on the movement of your chest and lungs, the sensation of the air flowing in and out, and releasing everything else from your mind. The more you breathe the more you flow within yourself and the more you release your thoughts as you exhale.
The more you do this the slower your breathing becomes, coming to a steady relaxed pace. A pace which is right for you. You will feel the difference, and the calmness and peace which it brings. Maintain this for as long as you can, as long as it feels good for you. The longer you meditate the greater the benefits you gain. Then when you are ready, just hold on to the sensation of calm, peace and relaxation and carry it through the rest of your day.
Tips To Help You Gain The Greatest Benefits
Meditating twice a day, even if only for a few minutes each time, is incredibly good for you. This is especially true if you practice as soon as you wake up, before getting out of bed, and also either when you get home from work or before you go to sleep. By meditating first thing you set yourself up for a calmer and smoother day. By practising when you get home you release the stress and strain of the day and can enjoy a far more relaxing evening. Before bed? Again you are releasing stress that could cause challenges with sleep, you take your body and mind into a state of peace and sleep thus becomes inevitable.
