Do you wish for an intense change in your body? Then, you need to slow down, focus and be aware of yourself. It takes extra effort to release from the frenetic energy of the world and listen to what your body is saying. Here, we have mentioned the process for you. But before that, let us first learn what a spiritual meditation is.
A Spiritual meditation is the mindful practice of something that takes you to the depths of who you are. It makes you realize the truth and let go of the things that happened and will happen.
The need to practice spiritual meditation comes from an innate to see and think what’s beyond the unruly world. Now, let’s learn how to do the spiritual meditation technique.
- Choose a Comfortable Position
Before you begin the meditation, you need to find a place and position that is comfortable for you. Choose a position that you’re comfortable in, but not too relaxing because spiritual meditation can easily put you to sleep. Sit on a chair with your back straight or stand up with your back leaning on the wall. Then, close your eyes lightly. In choosing a place, it should be away from the noise of the city and surrounded by trees.
- Experience the Process
In having a spiritual meditation you’ll have to let it go. Loosen up and let it take a natural and organic manner. You should allow the internal process to happen in its own way. Don’t get bothered about being right or wrong; let it flow in its natural course.
- Utter a Prayer
As you are sitting, prevent your thoughts from defaming your calm composure. You have to choose a prayer in your head not necessarily related to religion. You can utter anything, it could be a word or a phrase that something good for you. Now, keep your body loose, relaxed and breathe naturally, slowly. Observe your breath as it goes in and out. Then at each exhalation, think of the prayer you choose and utter it in your head every time you breathe out. Use the prayer to bring back your attention in observing your breath.
- Acknowledge the Thoughts
We live in a world that runs a lot of information. You are always fed with new data in the form of breaking news, updates, and social media. As a result, your mind is full of never ending game that makes your inner self-tired. You react to every thought and end up being affected. Even while you sit to meditate, those thoughts will bombard you. The challenge lies in not to respond to it, let the ideas seep in but control the urge to react. Let those thoughts puff away to enable you to get back to your meditation.
- Reflect on Yourself
Turn your attention to your body, your awareness and your presence in the space. Observe how your body feels, be attentive to your thoughts and breathe. Relax completely, stay calm and open your eyes slowly while sitting in the same position. Feel it, enjoy the lightness of your body and let the effects of mediation sink in. Notice how you become less agitated than before the meditation. Accept your reaction to the whole process was natural. Finally, come out on the meditation zone, stretch a bit and start your day.
Spiritual meditation releases and settle our thoughts, even our emotions. It relaxes your nervous system and helps your body unwind from stress. It helps you to let go of the past and sink peace in body and mind. Spiritual meditation helps you realize who you are, empowers you and helps you reach your higher consciousness.
