Almost every single person starts to meditate at a certain point of his life. What it is sure is that only a few of these people continue their meditation practice through the years. Meditation requires energy and constancy, but it’s really important to learn how to do it or it won’t bring you any kind of benefits.
Living the present moment may be the first aim to reach to motivate you to start a good practice to keep over time. The present is the only time that matters because you’re living in, while the past can imprison you in a fake reality and future can cause you anxieties or concerns.
The meditative mind is a blank mind, focused only on one thought, on one aim to reach through a path that only your mind can take. How to do this? Beginning with concentration. In fact meditation arises only when our mind is focused on one single point for a long period. To do this we need to concentrate and leave the unnecessary outside the door.
Let’s start from breathing!
It’s all in your breath, breathing is life, breathing can lead you to meditation. Start from paying attention to your breaths, inhale and exhale from 1 to 5, then from 5 to 1 to reach a sense of spiritual tranquility.
The most professional yogis affirm that concentration are “12 seconds of unbroken attention”. Multiply 12×12 and you’ll obtain 144 seconds of pure concentration and you’ll have reached the first state of meditation.
If this breathing techniques is not enough for you and you are easily distracted by anything around you, you can also try some meditation group and consider it as a meditation course you need to attend for your health.
Help yourself with music!
Now something very special for you. Music is a great help for meditation because it leads you to a relaxation state of mind. This is music is really particular because it comes from ancient times. Good for spiritual meditation is a mix of relaxing native american flute music and nature sounds for shamanic concentration.
