In recent years, meditating has become extremely popular, especially among wealthy people and celebrities. This could be attributed in part to the fact that life on our planet has gotten increasingly stressful. Pandemics, economic failures, and civic upheaval appear to be afflicting the whole human race.
These are just a handful of the problems that make individuals anxious. Plus, we all have our own personal challenges, such as financial and family issues. There are many things to be concerned about these days.
Archaeologists have found drawings on cave walls that depict holy men, kneeling in meditation. These are thousands of years old. This definitely demonstrates that humans experienced stress long before the twenty-first century arrived. And they didn’t have any medications to assist them to cope. As a result, they devised a simple method for reducing stress. They learned how to clear their minds of all the junk and focus on healthy images.
Below are a few guidelines to help you get the most out of meditation:
Find a quiet place.
Put on some relaxing music. Use essential oils. Light candles.
Begin by closing your eyes and taking several deep breaths.
Let your mind flow to pleasant thoughts. Imagine a peaceful valley and a calming waterfall. Think of beautiful things that bring you peace.
“Turn awareness to wisdom by asking and answering these questions: Will other people no longer love me because of my imperfections? Will people not be able to know it if I cover up my imperfections? Will I lose face if I admit having imperfections?”
