Many people say that they don’t have time for meditation or they simply don’t know how to meditate. In my opinion, we should stop thinking too much about it, drop the excuses and just give it a go. The most beautiful thing about meditation is that it can start with one simple, conscious breath.
What meditation is, it is simply being fully focused on the present moment, which is the only place where the true life exists. Past is not here anymore and there is nothing which can be changed about it. Only your approach towards the past can be changed. And the future? Your future is always being shaped by the choice you are making in the present moment. So where does your power lie? Right here, right now.
So would you like to bring more peace and harmony into your life you’ve been longing for quite a while now? I believe I can help.
Begin slowly and gently
Find a comfortable place where you are not going to be disturbed for at least 5 minutes. That’s right, just five minutes. That’s all that you need. You can sit down or you can even lie down. Listen to your body. Gently close your eyes to avoid any visual distraction. When you feel settled, start taking deep, slow breaths. Inhale and exhale at your own pace. You can also inhale through your nose and exhale out through your mouth if this is comfortable for you.
Now, let’s add some visualisation to your meditation
On your next inhalation, visualise, you are breathing in pure white light. This light represents all the positive energy and the goodness this Universe has to offer. When you exhale, visualise you are breathing out everything that is no longer serving you. This can include any worries, any fears and anything you are willing and ready to let go of. Now, visualise these as ‘clouds of darkness’ travelling far, far away to the distance. Trust and know in your heart that they won’t return back to you. Repeat this cycle of breathing with the visualisation for at least 3-5 rounds.
Coming out of your meditation
Continue to breathe slowly and deeply at your own pace. When you are ready, slowly become aware of your body, of your surrounding, you can stretch a bit if you like, and in your own time open your eyes.
So, this is a simple meditation for beginners, you can practice almost anywhere if you only find about 5 minutes or so. I believe anyone can invest just 5 minutes of their 24 hour day. With regular practice, you can begin to experience many incredible benefits that can serve your mind, body and soul on a deeper level.
