Today I am going to concentrate on my own technique which was developed by me over years of participating in various meditation practices and teaching my own groups. I found this technique enabled the participant to relax more deeply and therefore experience a deeper meditative state.
Start with five minutes per day and eventually add more minutes. It is more beneficial on a daily basis than spasmodic.
I feel like I am home whenever I meditate. This feeling connects me to my body and also to the universal energy.
I am giving myself “me time”. I breathe fully in through my nose down to tummy, giving the sensation of the tummy rising then feeling the tummy lower as I breathe out through my mouth. This allows the nervous system to relax and calm causing the rest of the body to initiate the same. After about six of these breaths, which is yoga breathing, my body is serene and the mind is slowing down resembling the brain going on a holiday.
Once the mind and body is on its way to complete calmness the next step is to visualise your next breathe going into the mind and continue two more breathes. Your next breath travels into the face with two more breaths.
Continue this cycle throughout the body until you reach your feet. If there is any area in the body that does not feel completely relaxed repeat this exercise just to that area.
Once the body is relaxed and calm I would take you on a guided meditation to the sea, beautiful park or garden and let you just be. If any voices appear in the mind just let them go to mother earth. Enjoy your time.
