Hello, Posters. I had decided to do a bit of meditation tonight, and I thought I might just pass on a few tips that have helped me to have successful meditation sessions.
In terms of meditation, relaxation is probably one of the most important parts. It allows you to relax, get focused, and not worry about any stress or uncomfortable things that you will fidget on.
How to Relax
~Get in a comfortable position. You don't have to be in the stereotypical, crossed leg position, either. You can sit in a chair, the floor, on the couch, or even on your bed.
~Pick a quiet place where you won't be bothered. I tend to do my meditation at night, because it is the time where I'm not busy and I have time to myself. The ideal spot is one that is quiet and comfortable.
~Listen to music that makes you relax. Music without lyrics is preferred, but choose a genre that is the most relaxing for you.
Tips to Gain the Most From Your Meditation Session
~Listen to Binaural beats and Isochronic tones. These helpful tools can produce amazing results while meditating. Sometimes, they even encourage lucid dreaming and precognitions. From experience, I can attest to the influence they have on sleep and the way you dream.
~Repeat a mantra. One of my early mentors taught me one to help achieve ascension and other spiritual resolutions; repeat the phrase 'Ohm, that I am, I am' in your head while meditating. Repeating this mantra also was what aided me to 'awaken' when I first started practicing metaphysics and such.
~Delve onto an internal problem that you have struggled with. It is not advised that you stress yourself with this problem, but ask internal questions to yourself; you will find that your subconscious or guides may help you solve this problem through vivid, symbolic dreams when you go to sleep.
Personally, I advise meditating at night, before bed, but it is up to you and what you are comfortable with doing. I hope that these tips I developed from my own meditational experience can be a helpful tool for those that need it.
Thanks for reading.
