One of the key ingredients to success, happiness and enjoying inner peace is meditation. Now there are a lot of forms of meditation and you’ll probably hear conflicting opinions on the different forms of meditation. I’ve practiced meditation for over 25 years now and teach the same method in my Creating Power system that I’ve been working with for more than 25-years. Today I’m going to outline the benefits of meditation and how you can begin meditating in minutes. So read on and enjoy.
Over the last 20 years scientists, doctors and researchers have been studying the benefits of Meditation and they have all come to similar conclusions. Among the findings, meditation reduces blood pressure, meditation improves the body’s ability to heal, meditation allows more oxygen to reach your blood – thus providing more energy, meditation improves your ability to focus, meditation reduces anxiety, stress and fear, meditation is more likely to increase confidence in a child or adult. The list goes on – but the bottom line is that meditation can work wonders for you.
In our own studies we’ve found that meditation increases a person’s ability to concentrate – after a few weeks of meditating regularly many find that they are better able to focus on work and other tasks. We’ve also found that meditation increases your ability to calm your mind and direct it to focus on achieving your goals – thus eliminating stress and negative thinking while giving you the opportunity to improve your life dramatically. Those who meditate regularly have a more upbeat view on life, and are more likely to succeed than those who don’t. Joe Montana – former NFL Quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and 3-time Super Bowl Champion says he mediates regularly and has been meditating since his teenage days – he attributes much of his success to the benefits of meditation. In short – some of the most successful people in the world practice some form of meditation. If you want to achieve success and if you want to truly enjoy the life – then I strongly recommend that you begin meditating.
As I said earlier there are many forms of meditation – all of which can be beneficial. The key is to find one that works for you. You don’t have to try different forms of meditation and there isn’t a higher level of meditation – they all are supposed to achieve the same results. If somebody tells you that one form of meditation is better or that his or her form of meditation is a higher level – it’s nonsense. Meditation is meditation – and when done properly and correctly will get you results. There is no higher form or a better form.
You’ll hear all kinds of things when it comes to meditation. Some people will tell you to chant, face east, sit a certain way, have your palms up or hold your hands a certain way. All of this is done to simply get you to focus on something and create a discipline. It really has very little to do with the actual practice of meditating.
Meditation is the art of focusing on something without any distraction or clearing the mind – keeping it quiet – which is also focusing it – but in the latter you are focusing on stillness – nothing but silence.
So if you want to meditate then begin by getting to a quiet place, get in a comfortable position, make sure you’re comfortable – then close your eyes and just start relaxing – take a few deep breaths – let them out slowly – let your mind drift for a few seconds. As you proceed – your breaths will become regular – and then begin focusing on your breath. Pay attention to your breath – as you continue your mind will want to drift – when it does this – gently begin focusing on your breath.
Doing the above exercise will get you started – but many of you will find that your mind is drifting – in fact most of you will not be able to keep your mind still for 30 seconds. If you find this happening then you know that your mind is very active and is used to doing what it wants. If this is the case then there is work to be done. When you have such an active mind that is thinking of what it wants when it wants – you are not controlling or directing it and in the end you are likely sending the wrong messages to your subconscious mind. This may be the reason why you are not achieving your goals or living the life you want.
You can practice meditating at any time during the day. For example: if you go for a walk you can try quieting your mind and focusing on the sounds around you. You can do the same while your driving – turn off the radio for a few minutes and focus on driving – think of nothing else but driving. Chances are your mind will start to drift again and again. That’s okay – just keep practicing.
A lot of people think that if they meditate things will change automatically. No doubt meditation will help – but if you want to create long-term, lasting change then you have to discipline your mind – so that it sends the right messages to your subconscious mind and so that you get the results you want.
This means that you have to work with other techniques. If you’re only meditating – then what happens when you’re not meditating? Chances are your mind is doing what it wants when you’re not meditating – and this means it’s sending the wrong messages to your subconscious mind. This will explain why you’re not seeing things improve. To truly reap the benefits of meditation you need to constantly direct your mind to focus on what you want and feed your mind new thoughts – thoughts that are positive and help you achieve your goals. You can’t meditate regularly and expect to see life improve if you constantly have negative or defeatist thoughts.If you do that you’re just eliminating all the good that your meditation accomplished.
