How to meditate

What is Meditation?

 Meditation is to focus on one thing for a long time so you can increase your attention and awareness.

 I believe, by now, you know what meditation is?  And how beneficial it can be for your health and for your well-being.

So here we go, the first tip I have for all beginners at meditation is to start small.  Don't think that you have to sit down and meditate for like thirty minutes or more at the beginning because it can be really hard if you're not used to it.  so I would say, start with ten to fifteen breaths. Make sure you're  breathing at a regular pace not too fast  not too deep just make sure that you're  breathing at a regular column rate and  as you breathe imagine as you inhale  blue air coming in through your nostrils  and red air exiting this is so that you  can actually not only feel your breath  but now you can also visualize it and  make sure that you are breathing  correctly. Throughout your whole meditation process keep on visualizing it makes things so much easier, especially for beginners.  And you can do that in the morning, in the middle of the day, and in the evening.

Honestly, that's already a good start because when you're taking those ten breaths,  you're bringing yourself to the present, you're centering your mind,  and you're kind of getting a taste of meditation and what it's really like. Start with two to five minutes at a time.  And you can do it once a day,  twice a day, three times a day.  It's really up to you.  But just start small,  start manageable, and take it from there.  Remember that you can meditate any time during the day.  You can do it in the morning, right after you wake up, or in the evening before you go to bed, or any time.  Just take a break in the middle of your day to re-center yourself and just meditate midday.  If you look at it that way, there's really no excuse to not meditate, because everyone here can carve out five minutes, sometime during their day.

 Next tip is to use affirmations which will help you to focus during meditation.  If you've tried to just sit there and meditate,  sometimes your mind just wanders and it goes crazy, and it's really hard to remember to stay present and focused on your breath.  That's natural because our human brains are all over the place.  That's the purpose of meditation, to learn to train our brains to focus more.  But if you're still a beginner, it could be really hard to sit down and be still for a long period of time.  So something that's helped me is to just repeat affirmations,  which is a positive or empowering statement.  Just repeat it over and over again in your head.  Just pick a phrase like, "I am supported,  I am guided, I am protected,"  or "I am worthy, I am beautiful, I am strong."  Whatever type of phrase gets you feeling positive and empowered, use that phrase and say it over, over,  and over to yourself in your head, during meditation.  You notice that that phrase is kind of like your anchor during meditation.  It helps you focus on one thing so that your mind doesn't wander like crazy.  And it also has positive side effects,  because when you're saying an empowering,  positive statement over and over again,  you just feel better about yourself.  You feel more of whatever it is that you keep repeating to yourself.  And repetition is really a way to ingrain something into our brain, especially during meditation.  So it can really add a positive effect too,  not just meditation, but your entire life,  the rest of your day as well.

The science might be kind of hard to explain, but essentially, listening to binaural beats puts your brain into a meditative state after at least seven minutes.  You have to listen to it for at least seven minutes or more, then you'll notice that …  It's kind of like a message for your brain.  That's how I feel.  I've been using this app called Synctuition.  What it is: It plays binaural beats, but it's also highly produced high-quality meditative sounds.  It just sounds like relaxing music and each track has a different theme to it.  So I listen to Synctuition right before I  go to sleep.  At night, I just put the headphones on in bed.  And the track is like 25 minutes.  Usually, I doze off in the middle of the track.  I get really, really sleepy,  really, really relaxed so that by the end of the track,  I just take off my headphones and I'm already basically half asleep.  I love it because, for me, I kind of have insomnia sometimes.  It's hard for me to fall asleep.  So listening to binaural beats, it really is a lazy meditation where I feel like I'm meditating, but all  I'm doing is lying in bed,  listening to music, right before I go to sleep.  Plus, it helps me sleep better.  I'll link the app down below where you can listen to three free tracks.  Synctuition claims that it helps you strengthen your intuition,  so if you're interested in exploring that,  then check that out down below.  You could also do a quick YouTube search of  "binaural beats"  and you'll find a lot of different tracks.  But the ones that I found on YouTube are pretty boring.  It's literally just the tone.  So I like Synctuition because it really is highly produced audio.  They put a lot of effort into making it sound good for 25 minutes.  So it's not boring in my opinion.

Another alternative is to just find soothing meditation online.  You could find that on YouTube or on Spotify.  These are not binaural beats, but just soothing sounds that help you get into that meditative state.  If you don't like meditating to silence,  then it may be helpful to just play some nice meditation music in the background.

So, let me know if you try any of these techniques.  Let me know which one is your favorite.  And hopefully, hopefully, you could build a  more consistent meditation practice so that you could grab all the benefits because it really does enhance your life.  It enhances how you feel.  And it'll bring more peace within you.
