How to Meditate

This page is going to simply explain to you how to meditate in the most easiest form.

Choose a peaceful, quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted. Make sure your mobile phone is turned off and if you cannot resist to pick it up, place the phone in another room.

* Don’t meditate on a full stomach, it may make you sleepy. Plus, try not to meditate if you are super hungry since you will just think about your next meal.

* Most people find it easier to meditate in semi-darkness. Try lighting candles, turning off the lights or just closing the blinds. ( Also if you have any light some incense )

* This seems obvious but make sure you are comfortable. Sitting upright with your hands resting on your lap is the most easiest position. If you must you can  try other positions but remember you don’t want to fall asleep.

* Try to relax every part of you body. Start with your scalp and move down your eyes, your mouth, feel your jaw relax, neck, shoulders, arms, fingers, stomach, legs, feet, and toes. Or start from your feet and work your way up to your scalp.

* Try to concentrate on one neutral thought that is pleasant. Such as a sunset, a certain colour such as blue or think about a mountain range or a river.

* Don’t forget to breath, you want to have a natural pattern to your breath. It can help to focus on your breathing. Feel the air as it enters your nostrils, moving to fill your lungs, then slowly exhale. Breathe from your stomach and chest, feel your lungs exspanding and your tummy moving in and out)

* If you get random thoughts, pretend they are clouds and watch them float away. Just dismiss them. There’s time to sort through random thoughts later.

* When you are done, do a big full-body stretching session for a couple of minutes before you get up.

* Start with just meditating for a few minutes and work yourself up to as long as you like. As it becomes easier, you’ll find you can meditate anywhere from your office to a car ride (not while your driving though

* You can also pick a mantra to repeat again and again while you meditate to help keep your mind clear. Usually these are words of no meaning, you just make them up. Focusing on a mantra can help stop random thoughts from appearing.

HOW TO PROPERLY BREATH

There is many faults in meditation which is due to the breathing. Once done right meditation can improve your lung capacity which will enable you to hold your breath for longer and can improve breathing problems such as astma ( not in all cases) To breath properly you need to follow this breathing guide then tamper with it , at your own will and level.

okay so once your in your meditation position its time to start the breathing what i do is:

Take one deep breath in but not too deep. Hold this breath for 5 seconds. Then repeat about 10 times. Then gradualy build it up. Breath in deep again but not too deep then hold for 10 seconds then exhale. Repeat 20 times. Now is the harder part. Breath in very deep , breath in as much as your lungs can possibly take ( to it almost hurts) then hold for 10 seconds , release the air slowly but strong but keep releasing the air, expell all air from your lungs so you feel as if your body is empty of oxygen. Repeat this for a following 30 times to get the hang of it. Then this is when you should tamper this guide either keep the breathing the same for now. Or make it more intense by breathing even deeper and deeper and also holding your breath for longer. This will open up all your lungs as a normal human who does not meditate use about 30% of our actual lung capacity which results in the parts of our lungs we do not use to die off. Doing this breathing exercise will ensure your lungs to be completely fit and healthy. I very much hope this made sense to you all.
