Last week I was putting together a curriculum for a meditation course and listed 21 ways to meditate.
If you’ve never meditated before but find a need to meditate to improve your life you might feel peace of mind to know that you don’t have to sit cross-legged and not move for hours.
I find I need meditation in my life as much as I need breathing. In my daily practice I use a variety of meditation styles such as visualisation meditation, walking meditation, reflective meditation, talking with my spirit guides and higher self, yoga nidra meditation, laughing yoga meditation, NentatsuHo meditation to change thought patterns, deep breathing to center myself, sitting with mudras and chanting mantras.
The art of meditation has been practiced for thousands of years.
Meditation has many benefits including connecting with your higher self and spirit guides to receive information and guidance for best solutions and positive changes, to find balance, relieve stress and anxiety, boost your confidence, give you peace of mind, increase happiness, etc. There is no other more unique and diverse tool than meditation that’s available to everyone, at any time.
My daily practice starts with yogic cleansing, pranayama and a Mantra, “I am Infinite”, then other methods of meditation will flow throughout my day as needed to enhance my day.
For me, the practical benefits are to maintain balance of emotions eliminating anxiety, awareness of habitual thought patterns and the power to change them, helps me visualise better to create my reality, helps me activate feelings of love, peace, and joy at any time, connects me to my higher self, and connects me to the infinite reality where we are all One.
