MEDITATION FOR RELAXATION
After a full hectic day scheduled with meeting deadlines, document preparation, attending meetings, etc. You’ll need to unwind and calm down. Have you ever gotten home and ran your partner step by step through your day. Or felt the need to sit alone in a room for 10min before you were ready to get on with the evening. This is your mind trying to wind down after a long mentally straining day. There are several ways you can do this - I’ve just named a few. But, the most effective and easy way is meditation.
So, how can you do this? You may think meditation needs to be time consuming or difficult. It’s extremely easy, relaxing, and doesn’t need to take a lot of time. The idea of meditation revolves around bringing your thoughts to a focal point (anything relaxing will do - let's call this your happy place) over a persistent period.
Your mind becomes able to rest in this state and your stressful thoughts start to melt away. Your body and mind start to build up strength against mental chatter and unwanted thoughts allowing you to more and more easily become relaxed through meditation. The stress builds up from the day, whether positive or negative, will fade away. Allowing you to engage with your home more peacefully and mindfully.
You will become aware during meditation that your breathing slows and your blood pressure reduces. Moreover, you’ll find over time that you are more easily able to focus on what you are doing at the moment. Stopping your thoughts from jumping forward and backward in time to different tasks.
The daily routine of meditation in your life can help with...
reduce nervousness & irritability
calm your thoughts
clear your mind
decrease headaches & anxiety
To name a few, however, there is an endless list of benefits.
Focusing on one single thing is the essence of all meditation. All of your mental faculties must concentrate on the subject of your meditation. One of the best examples fo this is to focus on your breathing… in and out, in and out. Following your breathing with your mind as it fills your body and releases negativity. Another can be the air around you, the breeze blowing through the rustling leaves of the trees. This allows your mind to focus whilst simultaneously existing in a completely clear state.
30 minutes is an ideal amount of time when you have it, however, even 5 or 10 minutes of silent breathing in your day is hugely beneficial. Don’t dismiss meditation for lack of time. Choose the posture according to where you are and what’s most comfortable for you. Include breathing, sound, imagery, or an object as your point of focus.
The most important thing to remember in any meditation is focus. This is a daily practice to calm your mind so you need to do the work to control your thoughts. But be easy with yourself. Don’t force anything, just allow your thoughts to focus in on your single focus point and when they drift (when not if) just gently direct your thoughts back to your focal point.
Distractions will always come as a result of mental chatter, worry, and automatic thoughts. This is completely natural and is typically observed in beginners experiencing difficulty in composing their wandering thoughts. As meditation becomes a regular part of your daily routine you’ll find your mind becoming calmer and calmer and your thoughts easier and easier to control. Not just during mediation but at all times of the day however busy you may be or whatever is going on in your life.
Some of the most commonly used meditation exercises for relaxation and ridding your body and mind of stress.
Clench the fists and pull your forearms in against your upper arms firmly. Keep all of the muscles in your body tight including leg muscles your jaw, etc. Now breathe deeply for 5 seconds, in and out, then relax your whole body at once. You’ll feel a tension releasing sensation throughout your body.
This can be done by feeling heaviness and warmth starting in your feet flowing up to your legs. You can do so by visualising that you’re wearing heated boots. Follow the warm as it spreads through your body from your feet all the way up into your face and to the top of your head. In this technique, you need to feel warmth and heaviness spreading through your body.
HEAVINESS & WARMTH
In this meditation exercise, you have to close your eyes and build an extremely relaxing spot in your mind. Choose a happy place and furnish it according to your personal style. Imagine you’re going there, wearing soft, comfortable clothes and feeling blissful. Create a mellow sense of being at your relaxation place. This is a place that you can revisit when you mentally need to getaway. You can close your eyes and visit this place wherever you are.
Feel the feeling but don't become the emotion. witness it. allow it. release it.
MEDITATION FOR RELAXATION
Our soul, just like our body, needs nourishment to grow. We strive for endless luxuries in life so we can lead a soft, comfortable life. But besides the availability of several material resources we regularly face cacophony because we fail to pay proper attention to our soul - resulting in dissatisfaction and frustration.
Meditation teaches us to strike a balance between our internal powers and the external environment. A person practicing mediation is in a strong position to control their thoughts and emotions, using them positively for their personal wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of others around them.
Though meditation is a healing process of internal structure, you don’t need to postpone it until you feel the signs of aggravation or agitation. Keeping your mind regularly in a calm and controlled state helps you to manage anything life throws at you.
You can devote a certain part of the day to this spiritual exercise. Meditation reveals the strengths and weaknesses of your inner being and introduces you to a mechanism that can bring peace to your fast-paced life. Confusion and uncertainty within yourself can make you feel weak and unstable sometimes when navigating through life. Use meditation to highlight these aspects in you allowing you to heal from within.
Contrary to what you may think about the complexity of meditation, starting is pretty easy. In an era of urgency and rushing, you have to find time for self-work. To empower your awareness and realise your capability. You'll revolutionise your life once you get to know the power of meditation and the way it can enlighten you.
You don't have to join a healing center for this, try it at home and see the benefits of self-realisation. Find a quiet corner somewhere in your home where you can sit peacefully and won’t be distracted by noise or activity. If you have a large sofa or a chair where you can sit at ease with legs crossed, sit there in a comfortable posture. Otherwise crosslegged on a cushion on the floor.
Try to forget every appointment, engagement, or Zoom call that you have for the upcoming days. Disconnect from the outer world in order to listen to your soul. Close your eyes and all other receivers that can possibly distract you.
The moment your eyes shut imagine yourself being one step closer to your innermost authentic self. When you dedicate your energy solely to meditation, a new sense of calm comes over you and your inner self unveils your deepest realities.
Focus on what your soul shows you, try to bring peace into yourself. Examine your thoughts that come through your mind and pay attention to internal mental activities. Thoughts that were pushed to your subconscious begin to clarify. Simply acknowledge your thoughts, and allow them to pass through. Rather than engaging with each one and allowing them to take over your practice. Think of your thoughts like raindrops they can shower over you and drip away. You wouldn’t attempt to engage with each raindrop as you can not engage with each thought. Let them flow away and return to the practice of following your breath or your chosen focal point.
After this spiritual process, don't spring back to the world abruptly. Rather, come out of your meditative practice slowly. Be patient and gentle with yourself, take a deep breath, and slowly open your eyes. Look around the room and a pause before attempting to stand. Make meditation an integral part of your routine, try it twice a day, especially at the beginning and end of the day.
Mediation and its daily practice are centuries old, people of ancient times were known to practice regular mediation, understanding its advantages. Today, people incorporate meditation as an essential part of their lives to make a real difference in their attitude and lifestyle. The process of mediation involves several postures. Here are some of the most common.
Most of the spiritual customs, rituals, and meditation instructors suggest a number of physical postures for mediation. Cross-legged is one of the most popular postures, also known as the lotus position. In this posture legs should be crossed and the spine should be straight. When you keep your spine straight it encourages the good circulation of spiritual energy - a life force. Rest your hands gently on the knees or floor beside you.
In this posture the meditator needs to sit on a chair with bare feet flat on the floor in front of them. Traditionally the person meditating can sit on a stool instead of a chair. Equally, someone bemoaning to Theravada Buddhism can walk in mindfulness. Walking meditation is termed as bas-relief in Sukhothai (Thailand). In this posture you’re required to sit by keeping your back straight, and thighs parallel to the ground. Balancing the head on the spine, facing straight ahead. Meaning you are not causing any unnecessary pressure on the back. Your hands should rest on the arm's of the chair comfortably or on your knees.
In this posture you’ll need to kneel on the floor with your buttocks relaxing on your heels and toes. Hands resting on your thighs.
This is a lying down style posture. In yoga this position is called savasana. The technique of this posture is to rest on the floor keeping your legs relaxed and straight. Its a less commonly used posture because there's a chance you can fall asleep more easily. But if you are wanting to do a sleep mediation this is ideal.
These gestures affect your consciousness according to Yogic philosophy. The ‘Buddhist's hands’ is the best example of the go-to hand gesture. Although, there are different hand gestures and meditative actions all with different purposes. These activities include deep breathing, chanting, and humming. The time interval and frequency vary according to different meditation techniques. Most meditation methods need practice on a routine basis.
