Guided Meditation Techniques
Meditation is an easy method for improving your physical health and for giving you tools to help you deal with your daily life. So if you’re looking for a way to first dip your toes into the mediation waters without going full Tibetan monk here are two practical techniques that you can try out at home.
Be Mindful of Your Thoughts
Above is a Video Testimonial by an attendee from Russell Lea
The third eye is really a metaphor for one of the meditation techniques you can try in the privacy of your own home. What it’s attempting to do is to get you to take a step back from yourself so you can see yourself.
The third eye meditation technique helps you observe yourself the way you’re observing the ball in the above analogy. The rushing river is your life, full of decisions and consequences and obstacles and hurdles and health concerns and more. It’s hard to have a clean and clear mind and a healthy lifestyle if you’re caught up in all that rush.
But with the third eye meditation technique you put yourself on your own metaphorical shore so you can have a better position from which you can observe everything.
So here’s what you do – get comfortable. What physical position you’re in is up to you, as long as you’re able to sustain it in comfort for a while. Close your eyes and shift your active consciousness up to that spot above and between your eyebrows.
At this point, begin to observe. What this means is instead of just letting your mental and physical feelings and thoughts just happen, you make note of them. Which make you happy? Which make you sad or feel tired? Why? For the negative thoughts, what could you replace them with in order to feel more positive?
Then fill your third eye with a beautiful star, sparkling divine white light in your third eye and mind to clear, purify and fill it all with love.
Expand your awareness.
Much like the third eye, this meditation technique revolves around observation. In this case however you’re going to place more emphasis on the physical world around you.
Start like you did with the third eye – get comfortable and close your eyes. Now try your best to focus your senses down to your breathing. What does it feel like as you are starting to expand your focus throughout your body.
Keep expanding until your consciousness fills the room. Take stock of everything you hear, smell, taste, and feel. Once you’re comfortable with your consciousness being that large retract it, one observation at a time, until you’re back down to your own breath.
Like other meditation techniques, the goal of this exercise is to help you to learn to shut out external stimuli that are shouting for your attention so that you can narrow your mind to laser-like focus. You’ll be amazed how much this can help you with your day-to-day problem-solving.
As you get better at using these or other meditation techniques you may find that you want to go even further, to find out if you can increase your clear-minded abilities to a greater degree. That’s where guided meditation comes in. Just like anything else you want to get better at, having an experienced meditation guide can make an immense difference in your abilities.
Take a moment and check out the above testimonial in the video. He makes a key point – that every time he takes a class he’s able to do a little bit more. Who doesn’t want a little bit more stress reduction and problem-solving power in their lives?
