Meditation for Beginners


What is meditation?

Meditation refers to a state where your body and mind are consciously relaxed and focused. Practitioners of this art report increased awareness, focus, and concentration, as well as a more positive outlook in life.

Meditation is about proper breathing and concentration of one’s thoughts.

  • Begin by finding a comfortable position conducive to concentration.

  • The place you perform meditation should have a soothing atmosphere.

  • Silence helps most people relax and meditate, so you may want a quiet, isolated area

  • The principle here is focus.

  • Loose, comfortable clothes help a lot in the process


Where to start?

If you are unsure, try a guided meditation (there are tons of great ones on YouTube!)

  • It’s a great way to help a person who is just beginning the process to concentrate better and easily achieve the full benefits of a meditative moment.

  • Helps the user to focus their thoughts and block out any distractions to experience the pleasure of silence for a moment during the day.

  • Assists people to follow the stages of meditation, allowing a person to go as deep into the process as they choose to.

  • Allows anyone to see it as an option when dealing with tension in the workplace or home environments.

If that seems too advanced try one of these techniques:

  • focus on a certain object or thought, or even, while keeping your eyes open, focus on a single sight (I like to watch the flicker of a candle flame.).

  • silently name every part of you body and focusing your consciousness on that part. While doing this you should be aware of any tension on any part of your body. Mentally visualize releasing this tension. It works wonders.
