From various sources you may have heard that meditation is beneficial for your health and wellbeing. You may have even tried to meditate at home but found it too difficult and hard to commit to everyday practise.
But what is meditation? Meditation is the ability to journey within yourself and rest in the pure nature of your consciousness. You need to travel through and beyond your thoughts and mental concept which you’ve been learning and acquiring for years. They are helpful in your everyday life and work but not during meditation.
How to get past your thoughts?
There are a lot of preparatory exercises to help us on our meditative journey. There are three essential prerequisites or skills to master before we can really meditate. They are letting go of tension, proper breathing and stilling the mind.
We’ll start with letting go of tension. Let’s simply lie down into Savasana pose or Corpse pose on your back with your legs comfortable distance apart, feet are allowed to drop to the sides, arms are further away from your body with your palms up if comfortable and your eyes closed. Allow your body to sink into the mat or floor underneath you and rest here for 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat daily for next few days before we move onto whole body guided relaxation.
Happy letting go of tension!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
