It’s time when I’m slow enough to face my fears I have a good look at them and turn them over in my hand.
A great way to build a meditation practice is to start with regular sittings where you focus on the breath. Count with a 1:2 ratio of breathing in and out (i.e. 4 seconds in, 8 seconds out).
Meditation hack: when focused on accurately counting the breath, you will find that it is impossible to think about anything else and it is much easier to let go of outside stress.
You can then start by filling that void with thoughts of gratitude and thankfulness; eventually you will be able to think of less and less in order to just be present in the moment with a sense of gratitude.
Meditation is a vast concept
- What kind of meditation do you practice.
- Do you have a meditation guide that you recommend or a particular teacher that you feel is very helpful for a beginner?
- When’s your favorite time of day to meditate?
- What is the best way and when is the best time to meditate
- Do you find guided or unguided meditation helps to clear your mind more?
- Is there a certain position you find that works better? It seems harder to focus when I try to sit super straight.
- Do you prefer guided mediations or just calming sounds? Do you have any tips to make master meditation?
- Can you meditate properly laying down?
- How do you position yourself when you meditate? Do you sit, lie down, or stand?
- What do you visualise when meditating??
