This is part one of a five-part series on Mantra Meditation.
Before I begin, I want to share a couple of key points about my style of meditation instruction.
I came into the technique I teach and write about through my own personal journey in which I explored a variety of meditation techniques and practices. All of them were really nice, but some were a better fit for me than others.
We’re all so unique and, while my thoughts and ideas may be a great fit for many of you, they may not be such a great fit for others. I encourage you to begin a meditation practice… and I also encourage you to explore the techniques and instructors that feel most right for you.
So, about my meditation style…
I am very laid back in my approach to meditation and I tend to throw most of the ‘rules’ out the window.
I don’t take a real specific spiritual approach to teaching meditation; rather, I just teach the basics and suggest to my clients that they add their own personal spiritual beliefs to it as they wish. I feel it’s important to make the point that you don’t have to adopt some new spirituality or change your own spirituality in order to have a successful meditation practice. Meditation is for everyone and anyone who would like to experience the many benefits it has to offer.
Before I go further into the technique I practice and teach, I’d like to say a few words about meditation, in general.
What is Meditation?
Meditation is one of those things best understood through experience, rather than reading about it, but I will see if I can’t do it some justice here.
Meditation, as a word, is thrown around rather loosely, but essentially it means, a practice in which the practitioner trains his or her mind, or induces a mode of consciousness, in order to realize some benefit.
And now here’s where it gets confusing… there are many different forms of meditation and not all of them are alike, nor do they produce the same benefits.
Practically every culture on this earth has some form of practice they refer to as meditation, some with more of a religious emphasis, such as prayer; others with more of a contemplative or concentrative emphasis, such as focusing on the breath, focusing on the body, or sometimes focusing on an object such as a candle or a beautiful set of mala beads.
You’ve probably even heard someone say something like, “Gardening is my meditation” or “Music is my meditation”, and it is true that one can enter an altered state of consciousness when doing something repetitive that one enjoys doing and, for some, this peacefulness and relaxation that comes from these efforts is a beautiful form of meditation.
For me, just as I view strength training as a way of keeping my body fit and healthy, I view meditation as a way of keeping my mind fit and healthy. And where my strength training has proven to have great mental benefits as well as the physical, my meditation practice has proven to have great physical benefits as well as the mental. They are very complementary!
Meditation and Having an Ageless Vibration
If you’ve decided you’d like to have more of an Ageless Vibe and are choosing to look and feel more ageless, meditation will be a valuable tool in your journey. If you are having challenges with limiting beliefs, you will find that, as your meditation experience grows, you will be able to move on through limiting beliefs that once seemed permanent… with much more ease… and answers to questions that once seemed illusive… will seem to just appear.
And if it’s sending out a more ageless vibration that gets you excited, you’ll also find that once you’ve harmonized your mind through your meditation practice, your vibration will be a lot more pure, have greater strength, and be a lot more long-lasting… and that’s when working with the Law of Attraction becomes a whole lot more fun and a whole lot more rewarding!
