Have you ever noticed how individuals who meditate look and feel more relaxed than those who do not meditate? With those thoughts in mind, wouldn’t you like to start meditating in order to feel great? Meditating is a great way to relax your mind, body and soul, which is why so many people do it each day. Of course, you can’t just jump right in and start meditating – you have to know what to do. In the paragraphs below, we are going to give you some easy to follow meditation methods that you can do in the comfort of your own home.
And by the way, when you reach this deep state in meditation, you might just realize that this Christ you have been trying to find is actually INSIDE of you, not OUTSIDE. You just had to strip away your own ego to realize this.
From here on out you will be doing 30 minutes minimum every day. You will be doing the basic meditation you did in day 4, but you will be doing it in the standing posture from the deep breathing exercises, with your hands on your stomach. So stand shoulder width apart, hands on your stomach an inch below your bell button (left hand on top for men, right for women). Keep in mind that for this bit you are not focusing on your breath, you are just relaxing. You should by now feel that breathing from your diaphragm is natural and it will start to become your normal breathing style. So for day 6, just hold the standing zen Baltimore position, relax and let any thoughts that entire your mind pass. Do this for 30 minutes.
Pick somewhere quiet where you won’t be disturbed. Meditation requires prolonged focus, and if your attention is constantly being dragged elsewhere, it will be difficult to carry out until you have more experience. With time, your focus will reach a point where you can meditate anywhere.
The main thing is to be comfortable enough to allow the body to drop away from awareness so you can focus 100% of your attention on the object of your meditation. Letting the body drop away from awareness isn’t easy when your knees hurt or you are having some pain going on. Some discomfort is going to accompany the initial stages of keeping your spine straight. It is likely that your spine hasn’t been straightened for a period of time for a while and so needs to adjust. It doesn’t take long for the spine to adjust though so be patient with the practice.
Once you find the proper place for your walking meditation, begin walking, and begin to correlate your steps with your breathing. As you breathe in, lift your foot… as you breathe out, put it down. Then you do the same with the other foot and continue in this pattern, walking along with the rhythm of your breath.
If you want to attain self realization then awakening this bliss is most important. And the most effective way to awaken this bliss is by receiving it from someone who has already attained self realization and radiates bliss. Simply by sitting with such a master, this bliss which is also called Shakti, Deeksha or Grace is awakened in you and deep states of meditation become effortless.
So that’s it, follow the tips above and hopefully, like me, you will soon find you are able to have a successful meditation every single time. And in actual fact as you practice daily, you will naturally become more accomplished with your meditation techniques anyway.
