Undoubtedly, in your searches, or even in random conversation, you’ve heard about Meditation. The topic has caught some major interest over the years, and now the benefits of Meditation are coming to light. There are multiple benefits regarding Meditation, and it seems that, it alone is the stand alone key to most successful psychic practices. It allows you to actively expand your mind, and allows for deeper cognitive processes, as well if, properly practiced, can improve health, stamina, and even so far as cure some illnesses. There are obviously some major benefits to Meditation, and for good reason. It is one of the longest running practices to date.
Almost every culture, if not every culture has some variation of Meditation within their history. From Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism to even Christianity and New Age movements. For at least 5,000 years, meditation has survived as a primary practice for expanding the mind, body and soul. Even science has touched it, looking at how it effects us both mentally and physically.
What Science has Found
Meditation has been growing in popularity for several years now, and because of this growth, science felt the need to see if there where any actual benefits to Meditation, or if it was all just hype. What they found was, it wasn’t all hype. In short, the studies showed that meditation effects relaxation, causing you to reach more comfortable states of relaxation. Improved concentration, and focus, as well as a higher state of awareness. It also has noticeable effects on the body. Slowed heart rate, and breathing patterns. Blood pressure changes, as well as an assortment of chemistry changes.
With these attributes contributed by meditation, you can see why it has lasted so long. One of the most popular reasons for the practice of meditation is, to relieve stress, and it does work.
But, now that we have covered a little bit of it’s history, shall we jump into how its done?
I should first note that meditation comes in many forms. It has many different practices to cover almost every aspect of life. I here will only cover the basics of it, and only what is generally used in the context of telekinesis.
The first step for any meditation should be to get comfortable. Comfort is very important here, it allows you to open up more, and feel less threatened. The safer the environment you can create for yourself, the better. It’s sort of a security thing.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to sit on your knees or in Indian style as most would believe. You can sit, or lay down, or even stand if you like, there is no specific style of sitting or laying that you need to do in order to meditate. The point is to get comfortable, so long as you choose a position that feels comfortable to you, then you are doing it right.
Once you have chosen a position, just try and relax, open yourself up, and let go of any tension in your body. Or any stress in your mind. Just go with the flow.
Here you have a choice, you can choose between many different techniques, or even create your own if you have a good idea in mind. Most people when they get used to meditation enough, they will begin to add there own personal spin to it that suites them. But for now we will stick with two that I know.
Find something that is small, and that you can set up somewhere. It needs to be a lighter color then it’s surroundings. The white flame of a candle can suite this purpose nicely, but it doesn’t have to be a candle. Just so long as you can easily stare at it. You can also do this with your eyes closed, and instead just imagine the flame of the candle to focus on.
Once you have chosen something, you want to relax, and stare at it. Focus all of your attention on it. Try to see it, and feel it, and even hear it and think about it. When you begin to focus on it, you will notice the absence of activity in your mind will trigger a series of rushing thoughts, trying to attract your attention. When this happens just try and allow these thoughts to pass. Acknowledge them, but let them pass in the next moment, and continue to try and focus on your target. Your vision may even blur to some extent, and that is fine. Just when you notice it, gently restore you vision and go about focusing. You only need to practice this for about 10 minutes each day to start, but you do want to eventually increase the time to at least 30 minutes a day.
Note. When doing this, don’t stress at all over your focus. Don’t forcibly focus, it will cause strain in your mind and eyes, which will lead to stress and frustration, which then defeats the purpose. The purpose being, you are training your focus. In the end, you will be able to put your focus on something and hold it without strain. You may even be able to hear and feel it with this training which is all the better. But I wouldn’t expect that you would get that far in the first few practice, nor would I suggest shooting for that. It should naturally come.
This has many, many different methods to do. Here, you can come up with you own technique fairly easily if you choose. You just taper you meditation according to your beliefs.
I generally sit in a comfortable position, and begin to let the tension and stress of the day melt away. I then focus on my body, and the energy it is made up of, and the energy around me and just let it settle for a moment. Then when I feel ready, I begin to focus on the energy in the air, and I take a deep breath in, envisioning within that breath, that I’m inhaling white vibrant, positive energy. I then circulate this energy throughout me, allowing it to reach and saturate every corner of me as if it where following my bloodstream. Pulling from my muscles, heart, chest or any place I feel uneasy, weak, injured or ill, that negative energy, where I then exhale it. I envision that exhale as sort of a grayish black smoke. I simply repeat this process until I feel as if I have reached comfort and peacefulness, and a little more energized. This meditation doesn’t really have a time limit. You can spend as much or as little time as you choose. You’re just shooting for a more energized and happier state of mind and body. If you reach that in a few minutes, then your good.
This technique is mostly used to relieve stress and help with energy flow. It can even help with visualization and focus, as you direct your attention to your breathing and what you want to come out of it.
Meditation is fairly simple, it really is just about letting go and relaxing. There are hundreds of techniques of meditation for hundred of different reasons though. If you do a little searching you can find others that help expand your awareness, help your perception, improve your focus, reprogram your mind, explore your inner-self, gather information, treating stress and fear issues and just about everything else.
They have found though, that the brain process and access information at a much higher rate as well as a higher quality of information while your mind and body is relaxed. Meditation goes hand in hand with the subconscious mind, as well as perception. Both can really benefit from meditation.
Telekinesis benefits from it greatly as well. They have found that in deeper states of meditation, there is a suspension of logical thinking. Which is important, as I have mentioned in my previous post The Subconscious Mind, about patterns and how those patterns create a belief. Where, this belief also acts as your logic. If this logic tells you, you can’t, then you tend to believe it, since it is your belief. But if it’s suspended, then maybe in that time you might be given the opportunity to prove it wrong. Though it would take repeated attempts to change your way of thinking since a pattern isn’t formed with just one thought and attempt.
