I have been meditating most of my life, well off and on all of my life. I have always found peace, clarity, and creativity through my practice of meditating.
For beginners I have and highly suggest to use guided meditation and work up and through all the absolutely amazing guided, musical, tones, chanting and just plain silence while listening to the heart beat. Don’t give up and don’t have such high expectation of your experience, it is a process.
Try to set this time aside just for you, no tv, internet or cell phones, this is very important time for you and you deserve it. Finding your own space is just as important for your mediation practice, although we can mediate anywhere having a special place that invites us to sit for a moment for time with and for you is very enlightening.
You can find many guided meditation for free on YouTube and it is an excellent resource to figure out which process will work best for you. Try them all because you may surprise yourself what you end up liking and can relax too.
You begin with setting your intention to have a 10-15 minute meditation session about love. (here you would pick a your own specific topic)
Meditation doesn’t have to be a long dreaded experience. In the beginning focus on just 5 minutes or 10, which every feels more comfortable and be aware of your thoughts. Don’t push them back down or out of your mind, just allow and notice what they are and say thank you and release them to be transformed for you.
Your mind can and will drift and dream, when you become aware of it just send your attention to your heart and your heart space.
I offer a free meditation for reconnecting to mother earth, clearing out your chakras and reconnecting you to source.
The reason you want to sit up straight is one, so you don’t fall asleep. In the beginning this can prove to be a bit difficult, by sitting up straight this will help. You will also notice that the energy is running up and down your spin, clearing out your energy center or chakras. Allowing energy/chi to flow freely also allows energy blockages to be revealed and healed.
Meditation also allows you to learn to be in silence, in peace and quiet without the need of noise. You will learn to love yourself unconditionally and be in your own presence.
The universe is abundant and there are laws of the universe that states this and through meditation you will begin your road to understanding and growing into understanding everything including yourself.
