Meditation practice

Here is a video by me on the practice of meditation.

Often people need some guided meditation sessions to help them get the hang of how to do meditation. It needs to be repeated often, I would suggest on a regular basis. So you might find it works if you come back and use this video quite a few times, until you have absorbed the practice and can do it on your own.

Find a comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed. Then turn on the video and, after a short introduction on the practice of meditation, get ready to be guided very gently into meditation.

Some meditation tips

There’s no real mystery to meditation. It’s really all about regular practice, say to begin with 10 minutes a day, increasing to say 20 minutes and then half an hour. You might want to do it at first once a day but people often do it twice a day, or have one expanded session a day. Every day! That way you can start to feel the benefit.

It’s a discipline, closing your eyes, breathing deeply and then gently and steadily, focusing on the breath, taking your awareness within, finding a quiet place. Sitting still, calmly, relaxed. Being present.

Learn to not make an issue over your thoughts. Learn to be the watcher of your thoughts, rather than the thinker. It’s about stepping back from thoughts, and being with them. Gradually they can fade into the background, although you might also have “busy thinking days” (Lots of people do!). The art is to not be attached to the thoughts but learn to let them go and bring your awareness back to your breath – and keep doing that. It’s a practice.

This is all about letting go of doing, and “getting it right” and all that stuff, and instead just being.

Gradually you can enjoy more and more the inner stillness that gradually builds with the practice.

Yes, enjoy!
