Meditation for beginners


What is Meditation


Sometimes, when you are starting to tap into consciousness and begin to meditate, you may find yourself wondering how to separate fact from fiction in the circling thoughts within your mind. In other words:

What are your thoughts, and what is my ego?

The best answer to this question lies within mediation. When you learn how to meditate, weather looking into this information as a beginner, intermediate or advanced meditator, there are a few essential bits of information to know.

When meditation occurs, it leaves more room for you to operate and record new information and new thoughts.

While within meditation and in that state of mind, it allows you to connect with the upper chakras, like the crown, to open your awareness without getting overwhelmed. 

Meditation is connected to the crown chakra because it is the point in which you expand beyond your self beyond your limits and experience sensations of unity and bliss.

You can think of meditation as a way to allow your mind to sort through data and discard unnecessary information and will enable you to reset.

Type of Meditations

I want to help you understand that there are various ways one can meditate, it does not have to look like sitting, lying down, or focusing on one object. One can also find meditation through playing video games, baking, taking a walk, regulating the breath, mantras, visualization of color, shapes, or even walking with awareness.

No matter the activity you are doing, meditation, in my personal opinion, and through my studies, is an activity that allows your mind to become clear. No matter the activity you choose for meditation, it will enhance, soothe, and harmonize the vibrations of your mind, body, and spirit to help rid any clutter.

Mediation is a state of mind, not an effort. Once this state is achieved a few times, it will begin to self create rhythms and have its effect on the world around you. Once this state of mind becomes a part of you, it then will affect you in healthy ways through sleep and other activities.

The next guidelines are for those ready to meditate with with sitting in a chair feet flat on the floor or sitting cross legged.

Meditation guidelines

  • When preparing for meditation, find a space that is quiet and that you won’t be disturbed and can be comfortable. Wherever this spot may be, ensure this is free of clutter
  • Turn off any distractions from your phone, lock the door if you are in a shared space, or communicate with who you live with that you do not want to be disturbed during your meditations if you do not feel like locking the door
  •  Bathe or shower, or at least wash your hands
  • You may want an object to focus on during your meditation. The object you choose to focus on can be a candle, flower or picture, or even a sound like ambient music or mantra
  • Wherever you decide to do your meditation, you can either be sitting up with your spine straight but not tense in a chair or sitting cross-legged on the floor
  • Devote your entire attention to the point of focus and start with 5 minutes and gradually work your way up to longer- 10 minutes- 20 minutes, etc. Or however long feels natural for you to go
  • Please do not force your mind to concentrate; it is best to keep it focused without effort. When thoughts intrude, it is vital to allow them to float by then force them away. If you find your mind wandering, that is okay, return to your focus point
  • Be sure that the clothes you are wearing are not binding and loose-fitting and that you won’t be disturbed from the body temperature of being too hot or too cold. An excellent deep meditation is good to have on a slightly empty stomach, but not too empty where your stomach growls and pangs. Then meditation can be distracting
  • It is a healthy habit to get in meditation practice at the same time every day. Many people choose to mediate the first thing in the morning, as meditation is usually better on an empty stomach. Meditation at night is good, too, though, it may cause you to fall asleep. No matter when you find yourself getting into a routine, make sure it feels suitable to your lifestyle and routine
  • Conclusion

    No matter the choice of meditation, we cannon deny the benefits it proclaims to your life. It may start as subtle shifts and slowly may notice the difference, but it is important that even on the good days to continue your healthy habit of meditation. Meditation can be used as a tool that is always with you no matter where you go. Eventually, you will be able to train your mind to meditate within a crowd of people. Keep trusting and enjoying the journey!
