So, what exactly is meditation? Meditation is a way of getting in touch with your true self. It can be used to still the mind and to harness the energies inside you and all around you. Meditation is nothing new. It was used by the great Buddha and many other spiritual gurus over the centuries. Meditation is quite hard to define because the only way to fully realize its meaning is by experience. Meditation may mean different things to different people. In this book, we are going to use meditation to harness your great inner power. Before you learn how to meditate there are certain key points that you should know. When you meditate, your posture or how your body is positioned plays an important role. You can meditate while standing or sitting or even while lying down in bed. Many people prefer to meditate in a sitting position. However, if you have back problems, then you might want to meditate in a lying down position. The important thing that you should take note of is to keep your spine straight at all times. The reason why you should keep your spine straight is not just to avoid strain on your physical body, but it is also to enable the free flow of energy through your main chakras. What are chakras? Do not worry; we will discuss them later on. For now, focus your mind on learning how to meditate. There is really no strict rule as to the best time when you should meditate. However, many spiritual masters advise that you should make it a practice to meditate at the same time or schedule on a regular basis. The reason for this is to be able to create a routine and ensure that meditation becomes a part of your daily life. A common excuse given by people who want to learn how to meditate is that they simply do not have time to practice it. They are usually too busy with school or work that they have no time to sit in meditation. Although you may have a busy life, you should understand that there is no way you can tap the great power of your third eye if you do not give yourself enough time to meditate on a regular basis. Therefore, it is up to you to check your schedule and find time to sit in meditation regularly. This book will give you different kinds of guided meditations. Hear the words and focus on your experience. Focus and lose yourself in the journey. Feel and experience the power of meditation. In this book, you will learn more about: Your divine self Moving deeper Guided meditations for letting go fear Guided meditation for happiness Introduction to meditation Benefits of meditation Simple exercises Perception & peace Meditate for more self-care and less perfectionism Relaxation techniques for anxiety Healthy sleep - what you need to know Watching considerations in contemplation ...AND MORE!
