Meditation comes in several forms, styles, and lengths.
It’s never just one style for all.
India was the first country to practice meditation (records show as early as 5,000 B.C.).
Since then, it has blossomed into nearly every corner of the world and every spiritual path such as Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Catholicism, etc.
Meditation has also been used with hospital patients, those with high blood pressure and the military, especially with those with PTSD.
In all the years of my urging my clients to meditate, I’ve heard countless excuses, including the following:
• I keep falling to sleep!
• My mind won’t stop thinking!
• I don’t have time!
• I don’t like that type of music!
While it is true meditation helps you to relax, falling asleep tends to be par for the course. But it doesn’t have to be. (Sometimes) exercising prior to meditation helps relax your mind, so you can achieve a deeper meditative state of consciousness.
In the way of getting your mind to stop thinking, I always advocate for forcing your mind to be clear of thought (it isn’t easy, I know, but practice makes perfect).
It is vital to make time to meditate. Sometimes, the only time I have to meditate is when I am in the shower (trust me, it helps). You make time when you feel it is important in your life.
While some enjoy the soothing sounds of Yanni…personally, I tend to meditate better
jamming out to the likes of “Disturb”, “ACDC”, etc.
Bottom line… you need to find what works best for you and your life.
