10 Ways to Meditate! Types of Meditation & Techniques


Types of Meditation – A look At Some Favorite
Techniques Meditation shouldn’t be daunting or confusing. Many types of meditation exist, so here are
some of them for you. But first, if you just want to go ahead and
meditate for the first time simply do the following; remove all stimuli from a room
so it’s nice and quiet and you are alone. Sit with a straight back, cross-legged if
you wish, close your eyes and listen to your own breathing. When thoughts come, gently push them away
and go back to your breathing. Do this for 20 minutes per day at first. Over months or years of practice, you may
no longer need to focus on your breath or anything at all. You can reach a point where there is no thought
in your mind whatsoever, a state of total silence and complete stillness. Here you may feel at one with all things,
peaceful and expansive. All of the following techniques will help
you to balance the self, improve concentration, increase empathy, feel universal love, find
peace and help you along your spiritual path. Overall, meditation can be classified into
two main groups: non-directive meditation and concentrative meditation. Non-Directive meditation
Generally, a main anchor is chosen, such as the breath or meditation music to calm and
focus the mind – but beyond this, the mind is allowed to wander. Thoughts can be gently explored and experiences
are permitted to flow into the mind. Intuition is used, and channelling can be
done where concepts, visions and ideas spontaneously arise in the mind and are indeed welcomed. We keep silent and remove the interference
of the 5 senses as much as possible so that we can listen to creation. We are experiencing the moment, non-judgementally
and non-reactively. Concentrative Meditation
A specific focus is chosen, such as the breath, a mantra, a part of the body, a concept, an
idea, a visualized object, or complete nothingness. This is so that attention is rooted to the
spot. All other thoughts are therefore unwanted
and gently pushed away while the attention is drawn back to the focal point or anchor. Practice is required so that attention remains
on the anchor for longer without thoughts intruding. The purpose of this is to improve concentration,
train the mind, help certain concepts to sink into the subconscious mind, and (the same
as non-directive meditation) to keep silent and remove interference from the 5 sense as
much as possible. As for all meditation, a good way to do it
is to sit up with your back straight without support so that you don’t feel like falling
asleep. You can sit on a chair, cross-legged on a
cushion or just on the floor – which ever suits your physical body and purpose. Types of Non-Directive Meditation For You
To Do Creative Meditation
You can get creative with your thoughts during creative meditation; while still retaining
a quiet mind and the absence of the 5 senses. Sitting quietly, you begin a healing meditation. Visualize a ball of white healing energy coming
down from the cosmos and enveloping your entire body. Visualize it all around you and it filling
your body with healing energy. Dark, negative energy is neutralized by this
healing light. Remain in the healing energy for as long as
you wish. Begin another meditation, again with your
eyes closed. Meditate on generating a ball of pure love
inside of your heart chakra. Visualize it growing bigger and bigger. Really feel the love that you are generating;
love for everyone and everything. See the mass of energy grow bigger and bigger
until it encompasses your entire city, country or even better still, the Earth. Meditate and visualize radiating love to the
entire world – it needs it! Contemplation
A concept can be contemplated and the mind allowed to mull it over. Although thoughts are not permitted to wander
away, the mind can move around and explore a given concept. Here is an example concept given by Geshe
Kelsang Gyatso (Buddhist meditation master); ‘Just as I wish to be free from suffering
and experience only happiness, so do all other beings. In this respect, I am no different from any
other being; we are all equal.’ Take a concept such as this and thoughtfully
examine it, consider what it really means, and to whom, how much and what the outcome
is for you. After this, you can condense the idea into
one or two words and meditate on that. Clearing the mind and contemplating such a
thought for a period of time really allows it to sink into the subconscious mind and
have influence on your personality, perceptions and beingness. Mindfulness
Please see my detailed article on mindfulness. Mindfulness is a crossover between the two
meditation categories, it’s both concentrative meditation and non-directed meditation. The reason for this is that mindfulness is
all about being present in the now and observing the present moment. We must focus on the present moment true,
making mindfulness concentrative meditation, however, we allow our minds to explore the
present moment, making it also non-directed meditation. Eyes closed, preferably in the classic cross-legged
upright (lotus) position, keeping silent with an empty mind, focus on this very moment non-judgementally. When thoughts come to you, push them away
– we are highly focused here. Start by observing your breath, how it feels
and what it sounds like. Then begin to examine parts of your body,
sounds, sensations and how you feel right at this moment. Your mind is allowed to wander around your
present experience. The purpose of this is to remind ourselves
that happiness and peace can be found in the present moment, and that we need not look
to far horizons to reach happiness. Mindfulness also dissolves the ego because
we are not mulling over the past, future, worries, lists and so on. We simply must be. Types of Concentrative Meditation For You
To Do Zen Meditation
This is the essential Buddhist concentration meditation. Sitting cross-legged with back straight, observe
the breath, breathing in and out through the nose only. The focus is on the breath. Hands on the lap, palms up. Your mind and breath should be ‘one’. Breath should become deeper and easier, just
like your state of consciousness. We count each inhalation and exhalation, count
one at the end of an inhalation and two at the end of an exhalation, all the way up to
ten and then start again. If thoughts creep in and you forget to count,
then start over. Counting helps you to realize when your mind
has drifted away because you stop counting. This helps to train us to concentrate and
focus. After several sessions you can cease counting
but continue with focusing on the breath. Ultimately singleness of mind should start
to occur. The breathing and heart rate slow right down
to just a few breaths per minute, and deep meditation is achieved. All life is reset, free of ego and attachments,
we can approach life with fresh focus. Mantra and Affirmations in Meditation
Mantra are syllables or words that are repeated to focus the mind. The word being repeated doesn’t normally have
a meaning. The choice of word for some is very important
due to the vibration created. Words such as Om or Soham (pronounced as So
Hum) are examples. Today, modern mantras are popular which consist
of a short word or phrase that are repeated to the self in order for the concept to sink
into the subconscious to turn it into a belief. These are known as ‘affirmations’, examples
being: ‘I am a strong and intelligent person’, ‘I am thankful for all that I have’ and ‘I
cannot control the actions of others’. Mantra are a good focal point to aid in silencing
the mind. Traditionally the vibration of the sound helps
you to enter deeper, finely tuned meditation to alter your level of consciousness. Modern affirmations help to change one’s deep-rooted
beliefs and can be an aid to manifestation (as per the law of attraction). Chakra Meditation
To cleanse our chakras, that’s the seven main energy centres that run down the centre of
our body; we can perform chakra meditation. As an example, we choose a chakra, hold our
left hand out stretched and visualize healing energy pouring in through the palm and travelling
down the arm into the chakra in question. Visualize the chakra opening, being cleansed
and flowing freely, and then visualize the healing energy exiting, carrying with it any
negative energy and flowing away. In addition, please read my article ‘how to
unblock your chakras yourself’ for information on balancing the 7 chakras. Chakra cleansing work is more to do with personality
balancing than anything else, and the aspect of personality or self that each represents
needs to be contemplated and meditated upon. You can contemplate on the following, to help
balance each chakra: Red chakra: Finding emotional balance, best
ways to channel raw emotion, turning negative emotion into something positive. Orange chakra: Awareness of the self and others,
acceptance of the self and others. Who are you as an individual? Yellow chakra: Dissolution of the ego. To what degree are you ‘service to self’ or
‘service to others’ orientated? Green chakra: How much love can you express? How much love do you require from others? Are your thoughts of love and unity or the
opposite? Blue Chakra: A balance of listening and communicating. Too much or too little of either? Indigo chakra (Third Eye Meditation): Are
you worthy or unworthy? Examine self worth. Focus on wisdom, love and unity combined. Listen to creation, work with the inner (intuitive)
senses. Meditation itself activates indigo ray. Violet chakra: Concentrate on the totality
of self. Your mind, body and spirit as a whole. Work with all chakras helps to clear violet
ray. Heart-Centred Meditation
Heart-centred meditation also helps to cleanse and balance the green (heart) chakra. Visualize healing energies cleansing your
heart chakra. Focus on love and unity of all things. Focus on feelings of pure love and compassion
for all that there is during your meditation. Focus on pure love. This is where consciousness reaches the gamma
wave frequency brainwaves, this is experienced in abundance by Buddhist monks during meditation. It is said that to transcend this reality
and move to the next layer of existence of fourth density, every thought that you have
must be of love. A tall order perhaps! Meditation will help toward this and to cleanse
your heart (green) chakra. Sound Meditation
Gongs or singing bowls can be used to tune the frequency of energy within the room or
within the self to a certain frequency, making singleness of thought and focusing of energies
much easier. In modern times, meditation music provides
a useful tool to focus the attention single-pointedly without the need to a visualize an anchor
or concentrate on the breath. Concentration is placed on the music while
all other senses are quietened and thoughts are gently pushed away. Please see my article on binaural beats and
altering brainwaves for further information on how sound can be used during meditation. But in a nutshell, sounds of a certain frequency
can cause a person’s brainwaves to alter and align with the frequency of the given sound. This is called the ‘frequency following effect’. This effect can produce some useful results
because brainwaves correspond with mood and states of consciousness, therefore allowing
the user, given the correct frequency of sound, to enter a much deeper meditative state. In conclusion
There are other forms of meditation such as Transcendental Meditation which is a very
popular and effective, used by millions of people worldwide plus a number of celebrities. It involves the use of a specific mantra tailored
to you and if you wish to learn transcendental meditation you must pay to learn from a registered
transcendental meditation teacher. These have been just a few examples of types
of meditation and they cover a wide range of techniques. What ever meditation you choose (and it’s
useful to practice some different types) know that meditation is instrumental in brining
you closer to the oneness of creation. It’s important not to approach meditation
with a rigid goal or a set of expectations, this in itself can distract you and the mind
cannot be clear to focus or freely wander. Great healing, self improvement, balancing,
calmness, happiness, inner peace and focus can be achieved; if meditation is made a lifelong
endeavour. Changes in yourself and your life can be seen
quickly and the possibilities really are endless. Don’t forget to click subscribe if you’re

    I don't meditate often, but I have, and my experiences have been rather interesting! The standout being a moment in which I had a tingly-feeling on my face, and, to my knowledge, this is what you experience when a spirit is evoked during the meditation-process. I actually learnt this via Nicky, and, being that I seem to be doing something right, perhaps I should meditate more often and more spirits can knock on my door–I want only good ones, for the record. The bad ones can go to Hillary Clinton's house.

    I prefer meditate without sounds. When I achieve a state of stillness of the mind all start to going round and round; it seems like I'm oscillating. Is it possible to lose control of meditation and fall unconscious? What I meant is damage to the brain derived from the deep stillness of the brain; something like dementia.

    I have two questions for anyone:

    A: does the music you listen to need to be "meditative" or can you simply meditate on any set of lyrics.
    B: If binaural beats are effective (I believe they are), why have I fallen asleep while listening to Gamma?

    But if meditation should be done without a goal in mind and happiness is the result, doesn't that make happiness the goal into itself.
    It seems pointless to me to do domething without a goal.
