Are you trying to maintain a certain rhythm of constancy in your meditation practice? Here I propose the 5 best tips to keep in mind when you start to meditate on your own.
- The importance of physical comfort
The first thing to keep in mind to enjoy the practice and return the next day with the same enthusiasm and enthusiasm is to have a comfortable posture. Choose the one you like most, in a sitting or lying position. In your preferred place that can be the floor, a chair or sofa lilian too. A comfortable position will allow you to relax, unwind and enjoy your time to the fullest.
- Thoughts are part of the process
One difficulty that many experience is finding a way to attenuate the constant flow of thoughts that our mind produces, which is the essence of meditation at all times. In my personal experience, when a thought appears during my meditation, I welcome it and escort it to follow its path, while I bless my mind for having enough lucidity to create it.
- What it costs the most: to be constant
The secret to evolve in the practice of meditation lies in the level of constancy. The same happens when one decides to learn a language or play an instrument. When it costs you to find the ideal moment, think that each meditation is unique and will give you a new and different experience each time you meditate. Try to also remember why you want to incorporate this habit in your life and reconnect with the humility, innocence and desire of the first day.
- We notice the benefits outside the moment of meditation
The increase in clarity of thoughts, tolerance, and peace of mind, good humor, creativity and intuition among many other benefits appear in your day to day. You will see that you will not even notice them but the people around you. The process of meditation is a process of purification and refinement; this must be gradual, progressive and pleasurable.
- Do not forget to smile
One of the most admired teachers of the Chopra Center is Roger Gabriel, and one of the phrases that I remember with more affection is “The seriousness is the ego feeling sorry for itself”. The smile is key, not only for life, but also to enjoy this spiritual evolution. Good humor accompanies you, reinforces, improves and intensifies considerably the benefits of meditation.
I hope these tips will help you. They are the ones I like to share the most and the ones I use that allow me to fall in love a little bit more with this wonderful practice.
