Involved with my wacky family. I am blessed with 9 grandchildren (7 boys. ) We love getting together frequently to tease, complain, love each other. We are a very loud and weird family, which makes for a lot of laughter! No one is spared! We have fun! That is important.
Be well, be happy and laugh a lot!
I almost always meditate laying down because that's the only way I feel truly relaxed with body not tagging at my mind all the time. I read about the preferred sitting position to keep 'alert' and prevent falling asleep but that hasn't been an issue and I'm feeling great after my meditations.
Hope that helps, and happy meditating! 🙂
If it is a different place every so often or every time then your mind and body will not center and you will not find your Chi.
I think the goal is to get to know your mind – how and where you do that doesn't matter too much in my opinion
- What do you think about when you meditate?
- I just have such a hard time not letting my thoughts get in the way, any suggestions?
- What do people “get “out of meditation?
- Is there a position in which you feel more easy to concentrate?
- What time is needed for meditation? Should it be different in the morning and in the evening? If you sometimes fall asleep during meditation, what should you do?
- In meditation. Is your mind supposed to be clear or can you meditate on something positive (or both)?
- How do you sit straight but relaxed?
- When meditating are there easier ways to focus instead of visualizing my breath? I have a hard time concentrating and keeping my mind from wandering when meditating. Does this get better with practice? And what are tips to get better?
- Sometime, while meditating I feel the urge to open my eyes. It’s better to open them or trying to focus harder?
- How do you know when you’re comfortable enough to start meditating without a guided meditation?
