Do’s and Don’ts of Meditation
Whether you are a neo convert to meditation and yoga or you are an old hand at these things, the following eight points will, in all probability, be very helpful for you. Remember to keep them in mind while you start crossing your legs for your next session and you are sure to have an enriched meditation practice.
o No suppositions – Do not worry about the experiences your friend or family member shave had. Feel what you experience and don’t fret if you are not able to glimpse the ‘supposed’ experience.
o No rights, no wrongs – Meditation is all about yourself. There is no right or wrong way to do it.
o ‘Relaxed effort’ – Put in effort – it is necessary – but do not try too hard to concentrate.
o Stop chasing your thoughts away – You do not need to evict your thoughts from their perpetual home; your brain. Meditation itself would lead to relaxation.
o No comparisons – Do not try to compare different meditation sessions. The amount of relaxation you feel depends on many factors and accept the fact that each session is going to be different.
o Take care – Meditation acts like a flush that pushes out stress and other physical and emotional toxins. Due to this you might experience some increased negative feelings when you start meditation. Do not worry, the feeling is temporary.
o Enjoy the experience – Don’t be overly concerned about what you experience. The more relaxed you are, the better and easier the meditation experience.
Music has always played a major role in the relaxation of the human mind and body. It also is a great accompaniment to meditation and yoga. The correct type of soothing music will make sure that you have a complete meditation experience and will also guide you through the steps of meditation.
