MEDITATION

What is Meditating?

Meditating is the practice of being present and becoming an observer of your thoughts and emotions, without judgment, while anchoring yourself in your natural breath.

How to Meditate

  1. Create a quiet and peaceful space. This can be indoors or outdoors.
  2. Find a comfortable position and close your eyes (if you wish), or light a candle and keep your gaze on the flame (a personal favorite).
  3. Breathe naturally, do not force the pace or intensity.
  4. Without judgment, notice how your body moves with each breath. Notice what emotions and feelings begin to arise and breathe through them naturally. If your mind wanders, acknowledge the thought and return your focus to inhaling and exhaling. 

Keep in mind:

  • Getting distracted is inevitable and worries beginners, but learning how to manage distractions is an important process! The destination is the goal, but the journey grants us wisdom.
  • Meditating the same time every day creates a healthy habit! 
  • For guided meditations, it is recommended to listen for one month for maximum benefits. Each Meditation is attuned to a certain frequency and charged with positive energy. Specific frequencies consist of healing properties.
