Minimise distractions

 

Meditation Tip

 

minimise distractions

 

In meditation we are training our minds to focus.

But distractions are what our untrained minds crave. Thus if we are to succeed in our meditation practice we need to keep these distractions to a minimum.

So turn off the phone and the television.

Let your family members know that you are not to be disturbed.

Meditation is important enough for you to put everything else on hold for the time being.

When you do this you can begin the process of meditation, of mental training.

Meditation Tip

Like Goldilocks’ porridge

 

Being comfortable is important.

This means finding a place where we can sit with our backs straight. A chair, a cushion or up against the wall.

It also means having a place that’s not too cold and not too hot, but like Goldilocks’ porridge, is just right!

If possible sit in the same place each time. This has the benefit of helping to settle our mind more quickly.

Aids to meditation

 

Meditation Tip

Candles and incense have been used for centuries as aids to meditation.

If you want to try one or both of them remember to use something with a light, subtle fragrance. This means the aroma won’t be a distraction for you.

So light your candle then sit comfortably in front of it. The candle should be at, or just below, your eye level.

Now bring your attention to the flame and just observe. When you notice your mind wandering, gently bring it back to the flame.

Make a commitment

Make a commitment to yourself

 

Meditation Tip

make a commitment

 

When it’s time for your meditation clear your mind of all the endless things to be done, all the worries and anxieties that seem to bob up from nowhere.

This time is precious and it’s important to train our minds so that when we sit in meditation that becomes our priority.

So make a commitment to yourself that your meditation practice is so important that everything else can and must wait.

This commitment will help you to let go of all the little nagging jobs that are constantly clamouring for your attention.

Harsh Winter Environment

 

Healing Tip

 

harsh winter environment

We were visiting China a few years ago. Ian took this photo at the top of Mount Taishan. I remember walking along one of the paths when suddenly my feet slipped out from under me. There was some black ice that I didn’t see.

What would it be like to live all year around in a snow-bound location? You would have to consider warmth and protection whenever you leave the house. I think you would also be very tuned in to safety.

We can’t always control where we live. Some people live in harsh environments.

At times we can all have, what I would call, a harsh internal environment. We can be critical of ourselves and of others. It’s easy to believe that whatever has happened is someone else’s fault.

But we can control, over time, our internal environment. We can listen to our self-talk and question its validity. Does it represent the truth? Or am I being influenced by belief systems and mindsets that no longer serve me?

No-one lives in our mind except us! So it is up to us to train our minds if we wish to experience more peace and harmony. This is where a regular meditation practice can really help. Meditation brings calm to the troubled waters of your mind.

It is also good to challenge our beliefs as they can frequently be incorrect. Writing in a journal can be an excellent tool to bring us greater self-awareness and inner peace.

Energy healing techniques like The BodyTalkTM System can also help. Read more…

Meditation Tip

 

Seeing The Way Forward Clearly

 

Do you feel lost at times?

We all have times in our lives when we are not sure how to move forward.

Perhaps there are too many options, or it’s just that you don’t like them. Sometimes we can feel quite stuck just doing what we have always done – home, work, home, work, etc

It can be particularly difficult if we are stressed as well.

At times like this a meditation practice is a great support.

A mindfulness practice brings us back to the present moment. It trains the mind not to run into the future nor back into the past. This gradually lessens your fears of the future and regrets about the past.

With regular practice our mind starts to purify and we feel a greater sense of inner peace and calm.

Can you do some practice today?
