Meditation is so important, it allows you to detach from the current reality, it allows you to calm down your mind and focus on your inner world. During meditation, your inner world becomes more important than your outer world. Meditation can help you take back your power. There are so many different kinds of meditation that you can practice. Guided meditations, visualization meditations, special breathing techniques meditations, etc. All of them are equally important. For instance, visualization meditation can help you set your intention and consciously create your future. However, right now, I’m going to focus on the basics. I’m going to show you the simple meditation technique that will benefit you, especially if you’re just starting.
You have to understand that the pure essence of every meditation is experiencing nothingness and connecting to the Divine. Meditation is the art of observing yourself in the present moment. It is this precious time when you become nobody, no one, nothing, nowhere, and that’s how you regain your power. Why? Because usually, we’re too busy occupying the past or the future based on our past thinking, and we never allow ourselves to fully experience the present moment. In deep meditation, the present moment is all you have. And when you become the consciousness in the present moment, the past no longer exists, you can change your energy and create a new future. You become open to all the possibilities that exist in the infinite field of potential because you’re no longer the subconscious program. You get access to your subconscious mind and can reprogram it.
So how to start meditating?There’s no good or bad time for meditation, you can meditate anytime.
However, I would say that the most beneficial time for meditation is in the morning or before you go to sleep. Thanks to this, you can set yourself up for the new day, or rewire your mind before sleep, and your sleep time takes you to deeper states of consciousness anyway. How long should you meditate?
I always say that you should meditate for at least 20 minutes a day and if you’re busy then meditate for an hour :) 20 minutes is good, especially if you’re a beginner, and then you will naturally want to lengthen this time.You can sit down on a chair, or you can sit in a lotus pose, nevermind.
The most important thing is to keep your spine erect. Why? Because it is the channel, it’s is your connection to the Divine. Your chakras line up your spine, and if you want harmonious energy in your chakras during your meditation, you have to keep the spine erect, it’s so important. Close your eyes and start by focusing on your breath, and focusing on the particular parts of your body.
Relax your body from head to toes. Fully experience the presence of every body part, and tell them to relax. Your mind does what you tell it to do. If you tell your mind to relax a particular part of your body, it really happens. This is called the open focus technique, and it’s a great beginning of every meditation. It allows you to become aware of your body, and it helps you relax and thus switch your brainwaves from the active beta state to the alfa state, and eventually to the theta state.
Once you’ve finished scanning your body, simply focus on your breath.
It’s time to become nobody and fully experience the present moment. Your mind will naturally start to wander, thoughts, perhaps even fears will appear, and that’s completely normal. Whenever you catch yourself thinking, just regain the present moment awareness and focus on your breath. This part should take at least 15-20 minutes if you’re familiar with meditation, but if you’re a beginner, I would say 6-7 minutes will do. For now. Now I’m going to present 2 optional steps that you can do after experiencing this nothingness, still in your meditation. You can choose one, or you can skip them. If you’ve never meditated before, you can skip them and incorporate them later, or you can do them during your very first meditation, whatever you fancy!Focus on your heart.
After experiencing the present moment, you can shift your attention to your heart area. What we aim to achieve is to give you a glimpse of the heart and brain coherence. This is a very powerful state that can have a profound impact on your vibration and thus on your life. Simply become aware of your heart. Breath through your heart, if you know what I mean (it’s like sending every breath mentally in the direction of your heart). Open your heart. Literally tell your heart to open (I know it’s weird, but it works, it just takes practice). When you start to feel the energy of your heart, elevate your emotional state, and remain in this state for 5-10 minutes. Set an intention and elevate your emotions.
Another thing you can do after experiencing the nothingness is sending an intention of the thing or condition you want to manifest. Once you’ve mentally set your intention, focus on the emotions that this manifestation gives you, and promise yourself that you’re going to get up from this meditation being a different person, a person who already has this manifestation.When you finish your meditation, gradually become aware of the room, your surroundings, and your body.
Bless your soul, bless your body and mind, and then open your eyes. I hope that this little guide will help you enhance your meditation practice!
