Some people are just blessed with a mind that can process thoughts as clear as water. They have the skill to concentrate deeply on whatever environment they get into. Then, some people struggle with thinking straight — individuals who get easily disturbed, affecting their capacity to think and work efficiently. For the people who belong to the latter, meditation is an excellent way to cope up with this practice allows the mind to relax and attain enlightenment.
Meditation results vary from one person to another due to mood, traits, and personality. Frustration can manifest on the person’s actions. To achieve a level of enlightenment, one must practice meditation.
The essentials in meditation involve a peaceful setting, recitation of mantras, and complete reflection. Although sitting upright indeed is one of the most effective meditation practices, there are many other forms to meditate. Modification of the meditation process can only be possible when the body and mind are used to meditating. You can have the ability to unite the spiritual, mental, and physical aspects altogether.
As you deepen your roots with meditation, you can’t avoid but have that particular level of connection with meditating. You will naturally seek that genuine positivity that you experience when in the process of meditation.
If you’re in a non-meditation friendly setting, concentrating can be challenging. Not to worry, though, there are some ways you can do to keep a focused mind in this type of atmosphere. The first thing that you can do is through channeling your concentration towards a single spot within the room. You can also be attentive to your breathing. Another way is by choosing one specific object in the room and drawing all attention to it. Music is a good factor in contributing to a more focused mind. If you feel that you need to extend your time in meditating, feel free to do so.
Individuals that are physically active such as athletes are required to stay focused on what they do. They can improve their physical capabilities if they learn how to connect with their inner consciousness. One famous female boxer testified that even if her profession involves a lot of aggression, she still finds time to meditate and chant. She had found a way of entering the state of calmness in the gym environment. She focuses on the sound produced by punching the speed bag. Focusing on the sound of each hit to the speed bag while both eyes are shut is a process of meditation for her.
In basketball, meditation is done by finding inner peace amidst the crowd noise and game pressure. Through this, the basketball player can train his mind to manage stress and anxiety in meditation.
Don’t stop your creativity from flourishing. There are no rules in modifying meditation. What matters most is the genuine enlightenment that you experience from within.
