This is your Music for meditation Page which is intended to help you to relax and balance the mind and body. You may listen to all or less of the music if you want to it is up to you, I set an alarm to gently alert me if I am only listening to a portion of the music. I will change the music as often as commitments allow me to. Set the volume as low as you can and still comfortably hear the music, close your eyes, let your mind go blank to events of the day, there is only you, the music, the peace and tranquility of the moment. Enjoy your journey and feel free to let me know about your experience at my email address link or request your favourite preference of meditation music, I will consider putting it on if I have it.
What is Meditation ?
The great thing about meditation is that our philosophy/religious belief is not important, meditation is about consciousness the beliefs of the mind become trivial, We dive deep into the heart of the matter to gain access to our soul – our inner reality,therefore meditation can be (and is) practiced by people of different religions or no religion.
But I don’t have time To Meditate.
Many people like the idea of meditation, but feel they don’t have enough time. When you really want to do something you can find time. Get up earlier or watch 30 minutes less TV, meditation requires a little of your time, but clearing the mind makes the the rest of the day more productive. Nothing is better than the feeling of inner peace, what is the point in being tremendously busy but unable to enjoy it? meditation is not about retreating from the world; it gives us inspiration. Whatever you do, if you have peace of mind, your work will be more enjoyable and productive.
How To Meditate.
Like anything worthwhile, meditation requires practice, to get the most from meditation you need to do it every day, this requires a place and time where you will not be disturbed.
1. Sit with a straight back, don’t try to meditate lying down because you are likely to fall asleep, meditation brings relaxation and peace but at the same time this is a dynamic peace, meditation is quite different than the relaxation of sleep. When we really meditate, we are fully alert and conscious, our sense of awareness is heightened, afterward
2. Don’t eat before meditating, after a heavy meal your body will be lethargic with digestion.
3. It is not necessary to meditate in the lotus posture, it is fine to meditate in a chair as long as the back is straight.
4. It is helpful to take a shower before meditating.
5. Burning incense and having a candle are not necessary, but they can add a little extra inspiration.s you’ll have a positive feeling for the world and a renewed sense of dynamism.
6. It is good to meditate early in the morning, it is said the best time is 3.00am although I feel it is more important to be awake and not sleepy.
One Pointed Concentration.
However you learn to meditate, you must learn to focus on one thing at a time, usually the mind tries to hold several different thoughts and ideas at once. When you sit down to meditate for the first time, you realize how cluttered the mind is, meditation teachers have described the mind as a “mad monkey” however, the mind can be tamed and forced to concentrate on a single thought, one helpful technique is concentrating on a candle flame, narrow your gaze to the small tip and block out all other thoughts, when you get distracted, go back to focusing on the candle flame, you can also use other objects like a small dot or flower the important thing is that you concentrate only on one thing at a time.
