How do you practice Meditation?

Being stressed out is a killer, and knowing what to do in stressful situations is a good thing.  When such situation arises I take some time off and go to a quiet place, first I pray and then I meditate. Actually praying is also a form of meditation.  I would focus on my breathing, thinking only one thought at a time, clearing my mind and focusing it on just one thing.

Do you practice meditation? How do you do it?

Learnung about meditation is one of the best things to have happened to me in recent times. Mediation connects your higher self with the universe. It's a serene place ti be. I meditate wherever I can. Even when it's noisy meditation helps drown the noise out. My nethod is to focus on my breathing, and then on specific thoughts, often always the things that I'm grateful for.

Somebody should teach me this. Where can I get the tuition? I need to meditate more. It is a healthy exercise

There are books written on meditation and you can find some of those online. The basic thing about meditating is finding that inner silence. The best and easiest way is to assume the meditation position, close your eyes, try as much as possible to feel relaxed and then just focus on your breathing. Many thoughts will run through yout mind. That's okay. Just remember to go back to focusing on your breathing. You can do this for 5 minutes a day when you first begin and go for longer times when you get the hang of it.


Instead of focusing on their breathing, some people focus on particular thoughts. You could try this method as you get better at meditating.

I do not think that there is any serious thing to learn as all you have to do is start practicing and improve as you go.

Yoga, is also a good exercise for meditation. You will eventually find your lightness and peace in this form of method. This will also gives you healthy lifestyle. I guess, there are gym that offers that service in your place.

I want ti try yoga but it is rare in our city and if there is, the sessions are really expensive.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Jelineex

Yes, I agree with you. In some instance, it is expensive and rare to find. I don't know if there are less experts for yoga. Since, the exercise is a bit sensitive. It requires flexibility of the body. It does need an expert. Let's hope for the possibility that you will have one in your area at a cheaper cost.

I tried yoga before and it does have a lot of mental and physical benefits including better flexibility and over all health due to its physical postures and exercises as well as its breathing techniques.

I think having a personal devotion or quiet moments with God before dawn breaks is a good and very effective kind of meditation.

Meditation in simple terms is just focusing your thought on a single thing. It's thinking only of s single thought, while practicing breathing techniques.

I also want to learn this method of relaxation. But I don't have time to look for some instructors to teach me how to work on this with busy schedule. Is there any other way on how to learn meditation? I will look forward to it.

I pray. It is also good to have a Bible verse to think about. Other forms of meditation have never helped me. However, prayer involves faith for a projected outcome and seems a positive stress killer for me. Today has been stressful and how anyone gets through some days wiithout prayer is beyond me.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I do agree that one of the most effective ways of doing meditation is thru prayers. More so if you have problems, praying for a solution always works for me.

True. Praying is my meditation. I pray in a comfortable and silent area, sometimes in a silent corner. Each time I pray, I tell God everything. I can be at peace because I can feel that my burdens are lifted.

If praying is a form of meditation when I do it daily. A prayerful person is like a freshwater lake. He receives and removes. Meditation is a good relaxer.

Praying is not meditation because we chat the verses. Meditation is about breathing and focusing on breathing. So that's why it's kind of different. Prayer is form of relaxation of mind activity. That's what I have noticed.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Praying is a form of Still Meditation because you concentrate your thoughts on your prayer, you don't pray out loud, you pray in silence. The more focus you are in praying the more you feel happy and relaxed afterwards.

Yes. I believe so too. This is what I do and what I feel afterward. I also meditate on other things too. But prayer is the one for me.

That's not how meditation works. Meditation is about letting go of thought. In prayer we think of god in thoughts. So not a connected concept in that case. Meditation and mindfulness focuses on breathing and less on god and other things.

Meditation is one of the ways that we can plan and prepare for the activities of the day and I think that it is nice when we get into this form of situations. It is a great way to focus on the goals that we set out each day as well.

Most of the time peace of mind helps in achieving goals, specially the hard ones, pure hard work can help you achieve your goals but a clear and sound mind, spirit and body can achieve much much more.

I see I guess it all depends on one's motivation and perseverance to achieve them. Having a healthy mind, body, and spirit by meditation does help, all I'm saying is that there's more to it required to achieve greater things.

Honestly I haven't tried to do some meditation since i don't have much knowledge about it but I am interested to know more about it since I heard a lot of benefits from using it. It is good to have these meditation so that I can relive myself from so much stress in my offline and online works. I can also focus on my goals for the day which is something that I really want to achieve so that I can have fruitful and better days.

I actually don't practice meditation. But, when I feel like my temper is about to rise, I practice relaxation. I do things like breathing deeply, be in a relaxed position and either listen to ASMR or classical music.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Jelineex

You have a good ability to control your temper. That is more than meditation. Sometimes, it's good to throw punches to release anxiety and stress. A nice focus and knock your worry free. Yes, I do agree with you music is one of the best method to relax and be calm.

agbuyarashel

I have panic attacks or also know as anxiety attacks especially when I'm about to meet a lot of people due to my social anxiety which is very toxic. My heartbeats are fast, I got a hard breathing, my body heats up, I sweat too much but my fingertips are cold as ice.
This is the reason why I decided to practiced meditation and listened to music for calming but it did bot help me. Tge technique that helps me is making my heart race more which is the opposite. I have read somewhere that it's a technique of tricking our minds to get rid of anxiety and worries by exercising or for a instant cure I do atleast 5 jumping jacks. In this method, my mind will think that my heart is beating out loud not because of anxiety but because I exercise or vecause of sudden and fast movement.

That’s a smart strategy for tackling anxiety and I can understand from a biological point of view how that would be effective. Next time if I feel my anxiety levels rising I’ll try that myself!

I listen to mediation apps that help me to focus and retrain my style of relazation. I live in a very crowded city right now, so there's always lots of traffic which irritates me and can make me anrgy in a second. So by learning and practicing meditation with apps I've downloaded I am slowly becoming a much calmer and relaxed individual.

There's so many apps for meditation and similar activities like yoga! I think it's because a lot of people have no idea these days about how to calm down and relax. Most of the time they're very stressed and need someone's help to meditate.

I think it’s great for our bodies and our minds. These days our world is often so hectic that we don’t have the time to switch off as much as we probably should. Allocating time to meditate gives me that ability to feel like I’m switching off for a while.

That is right. Meditation is very helpful and beneficial to us nowadays. We need sometimes to close our minds and meditate in order to us to be more effective in everything we do.

You may need to check out the Calm app. As that can be beneficial for the breathing and meditation exercise. So that is one thing you can consider if you are planning on keeping yourself into meditation. That is what I have learned.

I practice meditation in two ways: I either repeat certain words or I just imagine things. And I equally practice both simultaneously.

For instance, in my bid to maintain internal peace, I usually make out time to relax, repeating words like "there's peace here, every other thing is Alien. There's peace here, every other thing is foreign"; and as I do that, I simultaneously imagine my self in space, with nothing happening.

I do meditation in a cal and quite places. To be focused, you must stay out of noisy places, and do meditate in the beach, just me and the clashes of the waves in the shore. It relaxes me and clear my mind from stress and problems from work, just by listening to the nature around you. That is my own meditation. and I know we have different ways of meditating.

Immersing yourself in nature can clear up the mind and soul. You will feel more relaxed and reinvigorated. The problem with us is that we're too busy with our day to day lives that we forget to take the necessary time to really connect with the nature around us.

I always go to a quiet spot and empty my mind of all my thoughts. And just like you I pray as well! Then I take my time and sit there quietly as I release all my stress. It usually takes a couple of minutes to find my peace and I hold on to it like my life depends on it before getting back to work.

Personally, I'm a hyper energetic person. I simply canno't meditate. I always need to do so something.
When I tried to do meditation I failed miserably. I simply canno't just focus, breathe and do gymnastics. It gets boring for me.
Any tips how to overcome this?

I’ve often felt the same way - my brain often races with thoughts and I find it hard to slow down. Have you tried a meditation app? There are a number of them out there that offer guided mediations. Makes it a lot easier and they don’t take a long amount of time.

I have app named Calm which is a good starter. It helps with the meditation. And it can also save me from the issues like sleep and other things. The reason being some issues come from lack of sleep. In such case it'd be reasonable to understand that meditation is better that way. I am not sure though they can be that good to ask for.

Hey there!
I know that app actually, I've heard it's quite good. Myself I'm having a huge problem with meditation, primary the fact that I can't feel relaxed enough to maintain the meditation itself (I'm a very energetic person), but I heard that this app makes everything a lot more simple. Especially if you add some music, which is very relaxing (especially Chinese one).

I don't practice meditation that much, I do but not all the time. When I feel stressed out, I get something soft, put it in my hand and squeeze the hell out of it. Like a stress ball, the idea is the same, but I use various things instead.

There are a number of health benefits with meditation. One of them is that it helps eliminate stress which is a problem for many people including me. If I feel stressed or feel the need to take a break from day-to-day activities, I go somewhere quiet and spend some alone time with myself. I just close my eyes and ponder about my purpose in this life. It usually takes around 5-10 minutes, but it helps me get my mind straight.

To free my mind from stress or worries. I usually take a long walk and take a photographs of people, scenery, streets, buildings or anything that I see interesting. This makes me calm and relax. I find it a fun activity. Sometimes, I do gardening and I enjoy watching flowers blooming. I am happy being with nature. I also do swimming. Aside from exercising, I always find peace and serenity in water. I feel my comfort. I also find time to pray to seek guidance and be free from worries.

I do Yoga prior to meditation. It relaxes my muscles and brings me into a calmer state. Then, I usually sit underneath a tree and being meditating. I usually do it for half and hour and sometimes extend it for an hour if I have free time. I try to concentrate on my breath and my stomach and my lungs. We should allow our mind to wander about, you have to control your thoughts only then you will get rid of all unwanted things flashing across your mind and only feel the breath going in and out of your body.

Initially, it would be tough to stick to one thing. As you keep on practicing, you will experience it better. I was advised this strategy by my therapist. You need to close your eyes first and concentrate on your breath. Your mind will wander around but you have to pull it back to the breath. Then as you feel the air going in and out of mouth, you will experience real warmth of meditation. Alternatively, you can choose between your mouth, your lungs or your stomach as your focus area. You can do this for half an hour and this will really keep your refreshed for the whole day.

Gaining knowledge of a way to meditate and manage your thoughts is to find a quiet spot. That is quite easy however you need this to discern out how to meditate at home. Locating a quiet place lets in you to meditate without difficulty because without a spot that you may meditate at calmly, then you might not be able to meditate.

I agree that praying is a form of meditation since monks do it for spiritual purposes. I think as long a you clear your mind of the outside world and relax your body which makes you feel floating and relieving stress could be considered meditation. Sounds like sleeping right? But more like in a sleeping state yet you are still awake.

I recommend downloading a meditation app. These kind of apps recommend that you lay on your bed with the lights out with earphones on. Just follow the soothing voice instruction that follows and have a good sleep/nap. I even paid for the app since I was so impressed with my results. I'm quite a stressed negative person and apps like these really help.

Prayers are very powerful. Spending quiet moments with God in prayers and meditation in His words are more than the best anti stress medicine. God's words are very powerful and can change our lives. Meditation and prayers are the best kind of meditation. It can clear your mind, it can give you a positive outlook and it can inspire your heart to believe that everything is possible with God.

Well, Stress has become a part of our life and no one is able to escape tensions and stress in their life. Right from the top executives working in companies to a housewife who works at home everyone does face the problem of stress. Even small children going to school these days are stressed out due to there studies and extracurricular activities. Doing regular meditation and yoga helps us to cope with this problem. I do follow a technique of Meditation called Vipassana. This technique teaches us the method of self-awareness which helps you in training the mind to remain in the present moment, not in the past, nor in the future. Vipassana has helped me immensely to tackle all kinds of stress and enjoy my life.

I can’t say that I am a practitioner of medication but I sometimes do it when I have a problem that is confusing me especially regarding the work in the office. What I do is to sit still and close my eyes while mulling on my surroundings to feel that I am physical and my mind is mental. The meditation I do is sometimes coupled with prayers because I am a prayerful person and prayer gives me more encouragement when I meditate.

I do meditation when I have a headache or have been stressed from work. I usually go into a quite place where I can't be disturbed and find a place to relax my body either by sitting on a chair or lying on the bed. I would close my eyes and slowly take deep breathes in and out. As I exhale I chant just in my mind the word "relax". As I do this, I focus my attention starting from the top of my head, eyes, cheeks, jaw, down to my shoulders and down to the rest of my body. I do this for 10 to 15 minutes. My headache would go away faster than when I just take medicine for headaches.

I'd suggest prayer as a form of meditation. It can bring you peace of mind, heart, body, and soul. It's also the most powerful. You can really feel the presence of God as you devote your time to Him.

I do agree that meditation is the best way to relieve you from stress. I think meditation is important as it gives us relaxation and peace of mind just to at least take a break from stress you encounter from your work. What I do to meditate, I pray and just take relax breathe while listening to classical songs and somehow it relief me from frustrations and stressful moments of my life.

I practice meditating on the word of God. It is different from reading and studying the word of God.

Meditation is pondering the Word in our hearts, preaching it to our own souls, and personally applying it to our own lives and circumstances. It is how we sanctify our thinking and bring it into submission to Christ—taking every thought captive. Paul tells us in Romans 12How do you practice Meditation?o not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect (Romans 12:2).

Meditate on Scripture as You Go to Sleep at NightOne of the most critical times to meditate on God’s Word is as you go to sleep each night. In Scripture, there are many references to meditating on Scripture at this time. (See Joshua 1:8, Psalm 1:2, 63:6, and 119:148.)The quiet moments of preparing for sleep offer an ideal setting for contemplation and fellowship with the Lord. The thoughts that are on your mind as you go to sleep will be in your subconscious mind all through the night. They will strongly influence your attitudes the next day, consciously or subconsciously.

The Apostle Paul said, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you [live in you] richly in all wisdom” (Colossians 3:16). Meditation on Scripture will cause Scripture to “dwell in you” and become a source of wisdom in your mind, will, and emotions.Remember, meditation cannot be done in a hurry. It takes time. Doing studies on the meaning of a passage and committing it to memory prepare you to meditate on it. As you meditate, the Holy Spirit will teach you the ways of God through His Word.

Sometimes just imagining good positive scenarios that you want to happen in your life is enough meditation. I used to do this every night just before sleeping. I'd lie in bed and I'd imagine good things happening to me. I'd wake up less fatigued the next day compared to not doing it.

I like that. I think it's called affirmation. It's when you envision positive thoughts and scenarios. Focusing on what's positive will attract good things. Better than worrying about stuff all the time.

I have tried to make a mediation by way of prayers which I find also to be unique and very helpful for me to have a peace of mind am]and calmness in my spirit. I am enjoying the meditation process since it makes me feel comfortable and relieve so much stress in my body.

That's great. Prayer meditation is very effective in dealing with everyday stress. It gives us much needed peace and relaxation. We are able to focus on important matters. It frees us from the burdens of daily living.

@steve5 Yes you are right and it was my first time to try such such prayer meditation since I am just curious on what would be its effect on my part. It is great that it is really helpful and I would try again to use as often as I can since I find t to be very useful.

How do you practice meditation: I practice meditation, by doing it in a quiet place. By the help of a quiet place, I can think clearly and can make plan and decision carefully. It can help me exhale of the pain and hardships and let me inhale all the blessings I have received.

I do it also in a quiet place for me to have a peace of mind and do some breath taking activities so that I can feel relax. We should make our meditation as serious as possible because it can help us a lot to relieve stress and pan that we are experiencing at some time.

You can meditate on your own without guided meditation. Guided meditation helps you get started but real meditation is when you sit without any aid and simply practice in the present moment.

Meditation helps to clear your mind off things and gives you a better mental health. I've downloaded this app called Calm and it actually helped to do my motivation. I just grab my earphones, close my eyes, and listen to relaxing music and soothing voice on the app. I highly recommend this app for people who like to meditate.

I have heard a lot about meditation but i have never meditated because I've never been able to sit still long enough to meditate. I pray but I've never meditated. Perhaps one day, in the very distant future lol, I would learn to sit still long enough to meditate.
