I highly recommend taking time to Meditate and say positive mantras. Also research financial abundance. Try to lay in a peaceful trance and say positive things.

    ❧ Good advice GIL2GEN great posts everyone,
    hi HORST, many, many moons ago, I was studying to teach meditation and have practiced several kinds since. Yes you can overdo it I do not know exactly to what you refer 'dark night of the soul' perhaps. With that original meditation they called it unstressing and too much of that at one time is counter productive. We used to do rounds of alternate nostril breathing and yoga between meditations so we could more gently include more, when on retreats. Both help anyway and the breathing is easy and good to do whenever one is feeling stressed or to remain centered as JASON seems to do..
    BLUESTARACE love your picture, any time meditating is worthwhile, short ones a couple or more times a day can be more effective, more balancing than one long one.
    ROAN, a teacher once told me that even meditating once in a lifetime is better than not, although of course regularity builds up that clarity, as a more permanent quality of mind.
    PISNAMI indeed calms the mind and helps one be less caught up in the negative dramas of life.
    ROY, it is amazing what one can get through from higher mind which is part of the joys of meditation.
    LAURENCE, there is a lot of scientific research that backs up what you are saying about productivity it really is a good investment of ones time.

      ❧Hi Stanley, this is a common problem as meditation has a similar effect on the body as sleep, so it is like having a catnap just before bed. I especially find this ifI had caffeine earlier as it seems to kick in after meditation or catnap especially if I was too tired to respond to the caffeine earlier.
      Basically as well as being calming it is energising.
      hope that helps some

    I'm big into meditation. The key is physical and mental relaxation without falling asleep. This takes focus and practice and concentration.

    Observing your breathing and counting are two good ways to start.

    To observe your breathing, just observe and say to yourself as you are breathing in, "in" and as you are breathing out, "out."

    To count, see or feel the numbers in your mind in anyway that you can. Interact with the numbers as you are counting down backwards from 100. If you forget that you are counting or get distracted, gently begin to count again without getting frustrated. The goal is peace and relaxation.

    Meditation will do wonders for you if you approach it in the right way.

    I agree that meditation is potentially very worthwhile if it is approached correctly.

    I meditate sometimes up to a hour, but more often 30 minutes at a time. I believe it has changed my life, has brought a calm to my life, and has helped to stop negative thoughts. It has brought focus and allowed me to realize what "Living In The Now" is all about, and how fundamental it is to bringing peace and happiness.

    To those new to meditation, a common problem is assume it is necessary to fight to "clear the mind of all thoughts", which simply is not the right approach. It is natural for thoughts to come to mind and this is the basis of Contemplative Meditation. Contemplative Meditation is based on the idea to meditate on a problem, situation, person, or idea. Later, much later, one can go into Trance Meditation which involves clearing the mind of all thought, but this is best done after Contemplative Meditation has been mastered.

    You only need to meditate for 15 minutes a day, consistently every day and you will get into the habit after 20 days. To those that do not meditate, if you try it for 20 days, you will open doors you did not realize existed.

    I find that meditating upon waking (first thing of the day) is a fantastic way to start off "on the right foot."

    Proven fact that if you start your day in a stressful manner, it will compile for the rest of the day. So if you incorporate meditation as your first action, you start off by clearing mind and body.

    As we know we all often face stressful times during our lives. Meditation can help reduce stress, be more content and become focused, as well as many other benefits.

    I've read up on the laws of attraction- ANYTHING one ASKS for/wants or needs may be accomplished by BELIEVING that one will RECEIVE that outcome, repeatedly thinking about it, and maintaining positive emotional states to "attract" it.

    Remember this can be applied in business, relationships, health etc. Business success is only part of a fulfilled life. The perfect life should be a combination of different aspects of success - wealth, health, relationships, peace of mind etc

    I salute warriors on this thread who have realized the importance of meditation in our lives. Not everyone knows this secret and all they do is pursue the monetary materialistic gain whilst missing out on all the other aspects of success.

      Have you tried brainwave entrainment audios? There are many different companies out there that make these now. A good brainwave entrainment program/audio can be an amazing thing, though not every product on the market is good. Brings your brain effortlessly into deep meditative states without years of practice and discipline. Check out Brainwave Entrainment | Meditation Music | Free Binaural Beats to read some good reviews on different products. I used these for a long time, then found that my brain new how to reach the deeper states on it's own when I later went all-naturale.

    Meditation is a great thing indeed. There are so many different things that people call "meditation" so it's probably a good idea to define the term when talking about it and its benefits.

    I've practiced meditation off and on over the past 30+ years. I've done both what I call the "passive" type where you're clearing/calming your conscious mind by concentrating on the breath, a sound, etc. And I've also done what I'd consider a more active meditation where you actively do things such as clear things out of your mind.

    Whichever method you choose (and try several until you find what works for you) I find that consistency gives you greater benefits. I've spent the last year plus meditating for about 8-10 hours a week but you probably don't need to do it that much to get good results. Probably 30-60 minutes a day will give you good results if done consistently. I noticed great benefits within the first few days of being consistent--better and more restful sleep, better work and concentration, a quieter mind, happier, less judgmental, etc.

    It is akin to the “peace that passeth understanding”. It is also true that every meditation is not the same. Sometimes meditation is a struggle to control the mind, while at other times it feels effortless.These are some of the benefits of meditation:
    Improved concentration – A clear mind makes you more productive, especially in creative disciplines like writing.
    Less bothered by little things – Do you sometimes allow yourself to get upset by little things? It is the nature of the mind to magnify small things into serious problems. Meditation helps us detach. We learn to live in the here and now, rather than worrying about the past or future. We do not worry about meaningless things, but see the bigger picture.
    Better Health – There have been numerous studies pointing to the health benefits of meditation. The reason is that meditation reduces stress levels and alleviates anxiety. If we can reduce stress, many health benefits follow.
    Knowledge of Self – Meditation enables us to have a deeper understanding of our inner self. Through meditation we can gain a better understanding of our life’s purpose.

    While I don't believe in affirmations (I think they keep you in the place of what it is you are trying to get out of), I believe meditation definitely has its benefits.

    After studying meditation for a few years, I prefer the Buddhist type of meditation compared to the Hindu type. I lived in India for a bit and spent time in an Ashram and it just wasnt my cup of tea. The Buddhist type is less restrictive (on diet and lifestyle) and I think gives you a better peace of mind without trying to change what you believe in.

    Once of the best books I have read is Buddha's BrainBuddha's Brain . Absolutely AMAZING read!!!!

    Yo - meditation has helped me in a big ol' way. More relaxed, more focused and able to deal with hairy situations.

    Check out the binaural beats / audio entrainment tracks that are available on youtube. Those can help a lot in meditation.

    Mine is not meditation but saying prayers. After doing that, I feel peaceful and my worries go away although I know it's less about my feelings and more about connecting with my God.

    For me, meditating is a great stress reliever, even if it is just for a minute or 2 multiple times throughout. Often times my life becomes too stressed for my liking and just closing my eyes and taking deep breaths helps me to relax.

    Many need to realize that meditation has many forms and depending on which method you practice the outcome will change. Make sure you research the method you are considering taking, because different methods have more benefits for different people.

    The Shamatha meditation or the Calming meditation is a good place to start. It is a good cornerstone for other practices and is the most well known form of meditation. You can find a guide to start here.

    If you are interested in learning about meditation as a whole, or possibly in some of the disciplines/guidelines of Buddhism or meditation then this and this are good places to start. The benefits of meditation are great, but meditation is only a piece of the puzzle (you don't have to be Buddhist to agree with the way they train the mind/live by values.

    Buddhism is more of a methodical, well thought out, logical way of dealing with the world and yourself. Much more different than what most are used to when it comes to religion.

    Namaste.

  • I agree for those who spend hours infront of a laptop or computer sitting behind a desk all day at home or in an office, take the time to 'switch off' and meditate.
    It helps me stay focused and positive.

    Blockage can affect you emotionally, and physically. When I first started and didn't know about blockages I would find myself crying for no reason and other emotional upheavals. Tai Chi stance also helps to remove blockages.

    I do meditate, for 5-10 mins daily. Really want to increase the duration but for some reason doesn't happen. And yes, there are a lot of benefits of meditation which I cannot say, you'll just feel them after starting meditating.
    Even after doing 10 mins of meditation daily, i've found myself to be a lot calmer now.

      Good Topic. Just getting back into my meditation. One thing I can say that I have learned in the most odd place is the value of asana, during a few trips by plane. I will be incorporating that into my practice. As far as mantra's through my little research I have found that many of those with some mastery don't focus so much on mantra, more focus is given to breathing, and focus, with little given over to mantra. So, if you read where a mantra is personal or handed down believe that.

      As far as a historical view it has been written that monks traveled from India into Asia teaching meditation and then returning home. So, basically you are going to have two different systems at work none better than the other, but I will say this if you come across a master in the different forms of moving meditations I can almost guarantee you that they are well schooled in some form of sitting meditations as well.

    I meditate everyday for about 30-60 minutes, I love it and looking forward to it .
    I dont do it to make myself happier or more positive, I am already happy and positive.
    I do it because it brings out the best of me, thoughts, strength, potential and so on that exist in my unconscious mind.

    Have heard of the benefits of meditation and I have tried with some youtube inspiration, but I simply cannot find out to gain something from it..

    Instead I'm laying on my bed, relaxing with my eyes closed and listening to music. It helps giving my brain a chance to calm down

      I have tried to read books on meditation as well as watched a couple of videos like you said, none inspires me, I just keep getting distracted.

  • Meditation is big part of my life and something I have taught for years to people who have come to me seeking techniques for dealing with stress and illness.

    I just created a free mind power meditation based on the techniques I have learned from various Masters over the years. It works by washing away ingrained negative thought patterns, and replacing with strong positive thought patterns. The more you practice the better it works.

    Every time a thought comes to your mind, stop breathing and then the thought will disappear. Breath is directly related to your conscious and subconscious. When you are in fear (u THINK that your life is at risk, also u tend to breath faster); when we are in love or sorrow, our breath go through different patterns. Learning to control your breath will help you to control your thoughts. So, if you have been trying to meditate and some thoughts come into your mind, just stop breathing and the thought will go away and you can go back into your meditation.
    The ancient indian technique of "pranayama" -a set of breathing exercises - can be an excellent precursor to meditation.

    I know their is real power in it and I know that many people take meditation to the extremes and do it in the name of many gods and sects. I believe that we are to meditate on good things and good thoughts. It certainly recharges me and gives me focus. Do you feel the same?

    Mediation doesn't have to be a way to "think positively"

    It can just be an easy avenue to a light hypnotic trance state where your unconscious resources are much more freely available.

    I meditate daily. This way I do not get tired easily and I can focus more on what I have to do. At first I spent 10 minutes, but now I do it for a half an hour every morning before I start my day. If you didn't try it yet, you should. It helps your mind and body and you will feel at peace with yourself.

  • I regularly meditate, but only since I discovered that meditation doesn't have to mean silencing your mind. Meditation can actually be interesting journeys for insight and awareness, you can contact spirit guides, angels and power animals, and you can heal your heart, your past, and also project into your future!

    You can also meditate in only a few minutes, sometimes I just close my eyes and breathe into my heart. I feel my entire body soften, as if a hard external layer that I've put up is now crumbling and I'm letting my guard down. I feel so much better, wide awake and energised!

    I also love guided meditations, there are loads of really good ones out there that go for even just 10 minutes (which helps when you're first getting into it), and can really shift your mood and energy!
