Meditation has so many advantages. It promotes focus and relieves stress. Meditation is becoming more main stream as people are finding the benefits. Practicing meditation is not as difficult as one may think. Here are a few ways to learn to practice meditation:
Find a quiet space where you won't be disturbed.
Sit in a comfortable chair with your feet flat on the floor (not crossed)
Place your hands on your knees or relaxed in your lap.
Set a timer for 5 minutes.
Begin breathing just a bit deeper and keep your mind focused on breathing. How it feels, where it goes in your body. Anytime your mind wanders, just focus on your breathing.
Stop when the timer goes off.
Do this each day for a few days or weeks.
After a few days or more, when 5 minutes doesn't seem to be enough, increase the timer to 10 minutes, then 15, then to 20 minutes.
Meditating for 20 minutes a day will change your life.
Don't worry, your mind will wander some days, others will be easier to focus. The real key is to continue doing this every day. Some prefer to do this first thing in the morning, others later in the day. Find what works for you and just be consistent.
Manifestation is a really simple concept. It is so simple that you would think everyone would be able to do it. However, there are many people who fail to manifest what they want. Here are the top 4 reasons why people fail.
When you are manifesting success, you need to think positive thoughts and you reject all the negativity. Start by saying positive statements. Say “I can lose weight”. Don’t say “I can’t lose weight”. Say “I am a happy person, and happiness flows in my life” Don’t say “I am so depressed”.
Wanting superficial desires
Society has set expectations for you. They prefer people who are rich and beautiful. You try to manifest yourself to become like that. This is not going to work. You need to open your eyes to everything that is happening around you. Don’t live your life according to society’s expectation. Manifest your own desires for yourself! When you are manifesting, it is important that your desires are congruent in every part of your self. If you desire money on an ego surface, deep down spiritually, you might desire to grow in other aspects. So hence your manifestation doesn’t work.
Not knowing specifically what you want
You may be trying to manifest more money, but in reality what you want is something that money would buy. Be specific about what you want. Write it down in detail and then focus on it clearly.
Unable to visualize creatively
When people are told to visualize that their desires, most of them just visualize them holding the object of the desires. The key is to attach a feeling to this visualization. Remember the more vivid your visualizations are, the more real it becomes.
Once you know what is stopping you from manifesting success, you can improve yourself. Remember, manifestation is such a simple concept but you might not get what you think you want, if you are doing it for all the wrong reasons. So get your reasons right and practice! The more you practice, the easier it becomes for you to manifest yourself to success!
