I have read a lot theories about meditation rather i practice it but later i realized and understand that meditation is just being at no mind state. It is not doing some thing. It is just being nothing. Now i am sitting in quietness and experiencing the emptiness within myself. Thanks.

Yes I try to do it as much as I can but I believe that it is a great way to start your day. It requires practice and it should be the first thing you do after you wake up. I think I have to be more consistent as it will enable to focus more clearly on the things I want to accomplish this year.

Start every day with about an hours meditation, get up at 5 before the rest of the family to have some quite time meditating. The best way to start the day!

Yes I have done that but not regularly, only when I have time.
I feel great after meditation,even I just meditate for 5 mins. My mind released and all the negative thoughts are gone. Also, my intuition enhance a lot too!
So, I recommend everyone do it when you have time.

I meditate several times per week and have found Holosync technology to be a great asset in this. It's sort of simplified meditation. I just plug in my headphones, turn on my Holosync tracks and fall asleep.

It's a tad bit more effective to stay awake but my meditation tracks are over 3 hrs in total so I just listen to them while I sleep.

Yeah so in regards to the whole monkey brain, chit chatter aspect of the brain one really has to understand what the teachers and all the gurus are really saying.

Allow me to explain.


Firstly thought is mainly a bio-chemical reaction in your brain (electrochemical).

This is what we refer to when we talk about thought.

When they talk in meditation about "Non-thought" which is what I believe we are referring to here, what they actually mean is to think in a different kind of way, that is why I like this thread because people, I think actually get it.

Really what they mean is not to think in words. Words are slow, cumbersome and clunky. We dont actually need them in the brain. Yet that is how we are programmed since birth and hence the ancient yogi's and gurus say "do not think" because that is the only way they knew to say what they wanted to say. Make sense.

Words are great for communication, but in terms of thought, they are useless. They are not needed for thinking.

For example: if you are walking across a street and you see a bus coming do you stop and think in your brain "Bus, speeding, coming for me, quick move out of the way now before you die"? No of course not. You just know instinctively to move.

Its the same if you look at an object, go ahead, right now look at a random object. Your brain will want to say the word instantly, for example a cup. Why does your brain need to say the word cup?

It doesnt, that is the point, you know what a cup is without the word, you know its feeling, you know what it feels like. So if you look at a cup and you look at a telephone, they feel different dont they?

This is what you try to attain when meditating. This is real non-thought. Its not about not thinking, its about thinking in a different way, thinking in pure light instead of chemical reactions in the organic brain. Thinking by feeling.

This is not easy to do.

You should try Eric Pepins meditation technique as this is one of the core things he teaches. He has great methods for attaining non-thought, in fact ill go so far as to say any idiot can do it

I think he just released a new book, part of his core 1 series which details the meditation technique among other things. Goes for li 4.99 on kindle and is apparently already a best seller in several of Amazons categories, NO AFF LINK: Meditation within Eternity: The Modern Mystics...Meditation within Eternity: The Modern Mystics...

I earn $1,000,000.00 per hour posting tiny classified ads. The rest of my day is spent surfing, drinking ice cold beer and playing nookie with my 21 year old trophy wife. Want to be like me? Of course you do, all you need to do is repeat a secret yogi mantra every day whist standing butt naked on your lawn and doing press ups. To receive the secret mantra please send $47 via express post in the form of physical bitcoins to 333 Evergreen Terrace, Spongefield Illinois

At first it seemed hard, but it becomes more relaxing and enjoyable the more you do it.

I would say no (at least in the popular sense). My method would be closer to contemplation or pondering. I suppose I'm capable of clearing my mind but only for the few seconds it would take for something else to fill it up again.

I got sucked in and purchased Tony Robbin's course off of an infomercial when I was 19 and broke. Probably the best spur-of-the-moment purchase I have ever made. He is not perfect, but it did open my eyes to what is available in our lives.

There is an audio in the course called Daily Magic. I would suggest to anyone to find a copy of that audio.

It takes you through a very intentional meditation every day.
1) Special breathing techniques.
2) Gratitude (gets rid of fear and doubt)
3) Visualization (what you want to create in your life)
4) Affirmations
5) Increasing the positive energy in your body.

It's the bee's knees...

I would say that I do not meditate, but I do take time each morning for some quiet reflection. I guess some might say that is meditation. Basically I do it to start my day and just send a good vibration out into the world!

Not every day, but once in a while.

A tip for those that struggles with meditation: do not try or attempt it, simply use a moment to wait. Close your eyes and wait for whatever that comes, after a while you will fall into "another state", this state is meditation. Sometimes that gives me a mindful moment where I get to sense everything that is happening in my body, on some occupations I lose all feeling/attachment to my body and just experience pure silence, other times I get visuals like flying over a landscape, watching other people or moving colors. The different meditative states will depend, the important thing is to not try to interact with it.

The mind has many aspects, but the ones we experience is essentially built on two things: awareness and reflection. Awareness of feelings, thoughts etc and reflection over how we perceive them and what they mean to us. 99% of our lives is spent reflecting over the things we are aware of, meditation is awareness without reflection, it is pure awareness. Thats why you cant try or attempt it, because as soon as you do you are back in reflection mode.

The trick is this - Meditation is like wishing something you really ought to have. It's not a task you don't like doing. I usually spend 30 minute of not doing anything before I enter the sack. I empty my head and think about nothing. This helps me relax and ready for the next day.

I don't meditate in the conventional sense. Certain music can put me into that state and even thinking of certain people. I'm not great at getting my mind calm enough to concentrate on things in a meditative state but I know what gets me there pretty fast.

I've meditated regularly for years and I also use binaural beats to enhance the effects.

Meditation helps me to sleep better, reduces my mental chatter, and restores my energy. When you can do all that without having to take any pills or lay out any money it seems something I'd be foolish not to do now that I can.

I meditate daily.

It is an awesome thing to do.

Moreover you can extend meditation to improve your attitude and character.
It all depends: If you choose a simple meditation or a visualization, results may be very different (and interesting).

If you're in the mind warrior forum, I would advice you to try

how to be happier and learn to control fear & anger (woah. I didn't even capitalize this because it's not an ad, it's my advice and personal experience)

Default Re: Do You Meditate?

I've been meditating since I was 10 years old. My mother took me to a TM teacher back then. Later zazen when I was studying a japanese matial art (Okinawan style of karate).

Later, I became a yoga teacher and studied under one of the top meditation teachers in the world.

One thing about meditation - you can't do it lying down. You can do yoga nidra (sleep of yoga) which is usually led by a teacher whilst lying down. But true meditation should be done sitting upright for energetic reasons.

One of the common misconceptions about meditation is that it means stilling the mind. If you look at the yoga sutras of Patanjali there is, perhaps, a better way of looking at it.

Patanjali said there were 8 steps to the practice of yoga - called the ashtanga (hence the name used by one of the popular styles of yoga).

These 8 steps or limbs of yoga include things like posture and breath. The last 3 limbs really focus on the meditation and the previous 5 prepare the mind and body.

So, what are the last three?

Dharana or concentration. This is practicing focus - usually on one thing like breath or a flame or the light in your Heart. It is characterized by a complete focus on the object of concentration.

Dhyana or meditation. This is the step where there is two way communication between the observer and the object of concentration.

Samadhi or the merging of the observer and the observed.

The reason I am writing this is because most 'meditators' find it difficult to get beyond the practice of concentration. It takes time and commitment. And without going through the practice then the actual state of meditation is impossible.

Also, it really helps to have done the preliminary work of the first five limbs. They prepare the body and mind for the final steps.

I have some really cool and simple techniques that I think will help anyone interested - just let me know and I'll make some vids and post them on YouTube for the fun of it.

Best to all,

This is a link to a free downloadable book which explains the Vipassana style of meditation.

For those looking into mindfulness meditation this is a great resource.

It all depends: If you choose a simple meditation or a visualization, results may be very different (and interesting).

If you're in the mind warrior forum, I would advice you to try
The thing that keeps a lot of people from meditating continually is the expectation of some magical RESULTS. Instant gratification.

Meditation shouldn't be about "results" i.e. 'what am I getting from meditating'. It defeats the whole purpose for meditating anyway. Results-orientation or expectation is ego based, and one of the main reasons for meditating is to 'tame the ego'. Practising meditation over time should become second nature or part of your being like breathing, you don't expect some results from breathing , do you? It's just what it is.

Meditation simply gives you clarity, quietens the gibberish in you head over time, but analysing its progress or effectiveness is counter-intuitive and usually discourage folks to the point of giving up; because the expected "results" are not as apparent as they had hoped. Geniuses for the most part don't see themselves as such, why? Because there's no strenuous effort on their part as to how their minds process information.

Just do it!!

If there's one tool that has helped me reduce stress and gain clarity and focus, it's meditation. I recommend it for improving any and every area of your life.
If it works to keep top CEOs focused and on top of things, why wouldn't it work for the CEO of Y O U ?
Sometimes I'll skip a day or two, but eventually my mind will signal me that it's time to get back to basics, and give all those rambling thoughts a time-out.
It's helped me stay focused, control back pain, achieve goals, overcome stress, handle conflicting priorities, improve relationships, improve work efficiency.
Can things get better? You bet your Warrior Forum account they can! And they're already getting better. Every day.

Have a fantastic day,
Every day.
