Today we want to share with you a special post:
Meditation Techniques You Can Practice at Home
Meditation is a technique that has proven useful for improving yourself in a wide variety of areas, both personally and professionally.
From the psychological discipline and the promotion of mental health, several experiments have been carried out that conclude that practicing meditation on a regular basis is useful for improving mood, as well as reducing anxiety, stress, and even leaving behind intrusive thoughts.
If you want to apply it to your daily routine, keep reading. Here we will talk about how to meditate without going to class, giving several examples of meditation.
The best thing is that all of them can be learned in a short time and can be used with ease for those who want to integrate the practice of meditation into their daily lives.
1. Belly breathing
As you can imagine, breathing is one of the key elements for correct meditation, and when we are sitting in the lotus position, this breathing must be done abdominally.
Abdominal breathing allows us to concentrate the force of the body in the abdomen, which will help us to maintain this position on the ground for a long time without hurting our back.
2. Repetition of a mantra
The mantra is the sound or word that is repeated in a loop during meditation to reach an unconscious state that allows us to achieve balance during the process.
It is an oriental meditation technique that has been widely used for thousands of years to achieve altered states of mind and the most used has always been the syllable "Om".
3. Strengthen the unconscious side
The ultimate goal of all meditation is to empower the unconscious side of the mind, a part that we tend to neglect, especially in modern western societies, always empowering the conscious side of the mind.
By disconnecting from the conscious side for a few minutes every day and stopping trying to rationalize everything, we will be able to reduce most of the problems and psychological disorders that affect us on a daily basis.
4. Japa Mala
The Japa Mala is a traditional 180-bead Buddhist pendant used in Buddhism and Hinduism to count the number of repetitions performed during meditation.
This object can help us train our meditation and allow us to focus more on the mantra we repeat. In addition, it will help us improve our technique and increase our meditation time.
5. Singing bowl
Tibetan bowls are another element that we can incorporate into our meditation or relaxation sessions and they emit a vibrating sound that helps us achieve relaxed states of consciousness.
To sound them we must pass the mallet over the bowl in circles, turning the arm with the elbow as the energy center and not the wrist.
