How to Meditate for Beginners

Monday, March 23, 2009

Ever had an interest in meditation but never really knew how to make it more than just an interest? I'd like to try and help you. Simply follow the simple steps below and you'll be well on your way to great meditation success.

To begin meditating you just need an easy, basic meditation program to introduce you to the benefits of meditation. You need an alert mind to make the most of meditation so you need to be free of alcohol or non prescribed drugs for at least 24 hours. Wait 2 hours after a full meal or an hour after a snack or a caffeine drink before meditating, as the digestive system can be very distracting. If you smoke it is best to wait for roughly thirty minutes before meditating. You need to make sure you have some peace and quiet around you when you first begin learning to meditate. This is critical to your success. Make sure all phones are turned off/disconnected or turned to silent. A scented candle, a bouquet of flowers or something else pleasing to you can be great little touches to enhance your first meditation. This can make coming out of meditation a beautiful thing! Dim your lights or turn them off if you are going to use candles. You don't want to come out of your meditation session into bright light. Use a straight backed chair to sit upright or use some cushions/pillows to support your back and head.

Finally remove your shoes and loosen any tight clothing so you are comfortable You need to try and keep focused while meditating, if thoughts enter your mind, don't worry about them or focus on them, just let them float out of your mind again. Never expect too much. Many people get disheartened with meditation because they expect immediate results. Meditation is a marathon not a sprint, always remember that. Practice and persevere and you will gain the benefits of meditation Try to always leave three to four hours between meditation sessions.

Make sure that your cell is set to silent. You don't want it interrupting your meditation session.Be wary of any organization asking you for large amounts of money upfront to learn meditation. Many people don't know any better and can end up paying thousands of dollars to learn to meditate, when they could just as easily learn exactly the same method free of charges. You should keep an open mind and be aware that meditation is not a religion and you don’t need a guru to learn meditation.

Things You'll Need

Above all else you'll need peace and quiet! A straight backed chair or cushions/pillows. Maybe a sign outside your door to make people aware that you are meditating and should not be disturbed.
