Basics of Meditating


Introduction to Meditation


Today, I am going to describe the basic “to-knows” about meditation. The most important things to know, are the benefits of meditating. Meditation is a part of the Buddhist religion, "Yoga". As an exercise, it helps the mind, body, and spirit achieve peace, and discipline with mental concentration, and spiritual intention. Practiced by ancient civilizations, this mindfulness technique was introduced gradually into modern society and is now being recognized for its capabilities to reduce stress and anxiety. It has also been associated with improving social interaction, and mood disorders. Spiritually, meditation can bring awareness to emotional needs, and increase happiness. Long term, meditation practices will help stabilize mental and emotional experiences.

Basic Terms


The main purpose while meditating is to control your breathing. This technique is known as pranayama. This exercise relaxes the body and allows concentration so you can begin to focus on your emotional and energetic needs. Another important term to know is Asana. This describes the position you are in physically while meditating. There are several positions you can use to develop your style of meditation. As you advance in skill, you will begin to develop more advanced techniques. Categorized into sitting, standing, laying down, and kneeling positions, each one offers different benefits and results. Finally, you need to know the term intention. This is the goal you want to achieve; mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It is the reason you are meditating. You want to have this in mind when you choose an asana. You also want to keep this in mind when you select accessories such as incense, crystals, vibrational music; singing bowls, chimes, etc.



Meditation as Guidance


At the beginning of your practice, it may be unclear how meditating exactly provides guidance. However, it will begin to manifest naturally through awareness, mindfulness, and reduced anxiety. You will notice a change in experiences that reflect more focus on personal needs and happiness. Manifestation, the process of achieving physical results, will emphasize the efforts made that guided you to success.


In summary, through meditation, you can manage your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a disciplined and holistic way.


Challenge yourself to become empowered with mindfulness. Learn practical solutions to everyday concerns. Let meditation be a tool that creates balance and substance in your life.
