Meditation has turned my life around from complete depression and anger to a life of love and happiness. It has unlocked the door into, not just my mind, but the mind of the universe. People all over the world use many different ‘ceremonies’ for meditation.
I personally sit in the standard lotus form and do breathing exercises. Eyes gazed down to the ‘triangle’ of the nose, thinking, “In with the good (imaging pure white) and out with the bad (imaging pitch black). Once I have calmed and controlled my mind through this exercise, I then begin to very lightly introduce events or issues happening in my life, at that moment, to ponder and receive the message of the universe on how to handle these situations and what decisions to make. Focusing on breathing and clearing the mind with the ‘white=inhale/ black=exhale’ can be done during any part of the day (running, eating, driving, waiting on an elevator, etc.) to help clear the mind and make better decisions.
Meditation is very important in all its different forms and techniques. Knowing different ways to meditate can only improve our meditations.
So what are some techniques you use?
How often do you try to use them?
@dukevonschmot, Interesting use of imagination with the whole inhale white, exhale black. I’ll be sure to try that!
And I just either lay down or sit cross-legged (attempt to do half-lotus) and breathe deeply, focusing on the observation of my thoughts and eventually just the observation itself. I also have visual snow so I focus on that too occasionally. Sometimes I think in “pure thought”, meaning no words, and yeah. Pretty much is up in there how I meditate.
