Meditation Mind Power

I have been meditating for 5 years now and it is the most empowering mind technique ever.  In meditation, you are fully using your mind.  Meditation is a mental discipline where your mind power goes into a deeper state of relaxation.  There are so many different types of meditation methods out there.  So in this article, I will discuss the basic one which is the one I practice.       

The first thing you need to do is set aside some time in your day to meditate.  Make sure your setting is quite and relaxing.  You can meditate for 5 minutes of longer. I usually mediate for 15 minutes each day.  It is important not to meditate right after eating or if you have not eaten at all.  This can be distracting to your session.       

Make sure you turn off distractions like loud music, TV and telephones.  You want total peace and quiet.  If you need to have music, make sure it is calm and soothing.  I normally listen to a CD with the sounds of nature.          

Sit on the floor or a soft cushion if the floor is hard.  Cross your legs Indian style.  This is not a necessary step but you do need to at the least keep you back straight.            

Close your eyes and breathe deeply from your abdomen.  You should feel your stomach rise and fall.  Inhale, count to 3 and then exhale for a count of 6.  Do this respectively for 15 minutes.  This exercise will lower your heart rate and blood pressure.         

Now just kind of let your body go and relax all of your muscles.  Do this step slowly starting with your neck and working your way down to your toes.  This is a great exercise for getting rid of all the tension in your body.            

Now it’s time to clear your mind.  Do not think of anything at this point.  This is extremely hard to do but your mind power has to take over and you must be disciplined to do this.  Now just sit there for about 10 minutes with your muscles relaxed and your mind totally clear.           

And that is all there is to meditation.  After this, you will feel calmer, happier and more relaxed.  Remember, all meditation is about clearing your mind and relaxing your body.  Meditation may not work the first session either. This is because your mind needs to get use to this new exercise it has been given.  But in order for it to work, you need to be consistent with it.
