Meditation for Beginners
Well done on being here. You definitely did not chance upon this, oh wait, do you think this was already part of your journey that you are here reading this? Only you will know, maybe now, later, when you're ready. Many of us are always searching for that deep sense of belonging towards peace and happiness. Few of us find it. This is because of what we choose to condition ourselves with, consciously or unconsciously. If you are looking for/ to:
Setting up for Meditation
Start of with whatever you can afford or want to. It can be as short as a minute and you can work up to however long you wish to after as you progress and find time.
Simple as it is, the art of meditation starts and end with the breath. There is no secret to this(well it was a secret but now you know it!). When we are sad, we breath a certain way, happy a certain way, angry a certain way which we already know how and etc. Breath says a lot but is very subtle and if you know when to be aware of it ,many things change. Start by learning to practice shifting your awareness to your breath. As you read this i want you to already do it as we go with your eyes open and then practise it with your eyes closed. As you take a deep inhale, be aware of every air that goes in through your nose, imagine you can see clouds of smoke going into your nostrils, and as you exhale, exhale slower than you inhale and be aware of the clouds of smoke going out. Now take your time and close your eyes to practice one to two cycle of breath doing that.
Now slowly increase that practise from two breath to a few more moment of time without counting the breath or taking time into consideration, whatever feels right, then you open your eyes(make a conscious decision when you actually want to open your eyes). That's it, your'e done for meditation session! The mind will try and take you places of trauma, joy, imagination and such things as it's the mind, it doesn't want to stop. Most of us aren't comfortable with sitting quite due to us not being conscious enough to actually separate our minds and our self. Ask yourself, does your mind belong to you, or you belong to your mind. If it belongs to you, start being aware of the breath and see how it changes your environment and life experiences.
"When in doubt observe your breath, when in need observe your breath".
All the best.
