Meditation - This is the process of focusing on an object, completely immersed in it. The object to which meditation is directed may be a living being, a thing, a phenomenon, a process, in principle, everything that a person focuses on. Meditation is an insight into the essence of the object being contemplated. Such penetration is based on sensations. So, for example, chakra meditation occurs due to the fact that each chakra has corresponding sensation properties: sound, color, smell, taste. A person contemplating this chakra focuses on these sensations (smell, taste, sound). Since this happens on a sensory level, the mental activity in meditation is useless.
Unnecessary thoughts can only harm the process of meditation. One should not think about why this is happening, why exactly this smell belongs to one or another chakra, why it is green or yellow, which resembles its taste, and so on. These feelings just need to enter, accept them and unite with them.
Evoke them in consciousness should not occur under strong tension, they just need to infiltrate, incarnate. The necessary understanding of the chakra will come, but with time, and not at the conscious level, but at the level of perception. True perception can not be expressed in words, it just feels.
Exercises in meditation should take a long time, and the process itself gradually. This is necessary because for many years a person has cluttered the true "I" with unnecessary installations, a false identity. Therefore, to see and feel the result from one workout is impossible. What accumulated over the years cannot simply disappear in one day. Therefore, meditation for beginners should occur with a reserve of patience and perseverance.
The reason over which the activity transforming its structure is accomplished will at first strongly protest and oppose it. The mind of a person who depends on the material world will not allow a person to detach himself from the outside world, from all affairs and concerns. Of course, those who have less willpower and patience, or who do not fully understand the essence of meditation, can immediately abandon this matter under the pressure of such impulses.
Most people who start meditating do so. The worst thing is that they remain dependent on the outside world; they continue to spend their days, acting mechanically, without realizing the purposefulness of such behavior. That is, a person entirely surrenders to the influence of an external changeable world, therefore people often become frustrated in life if their expectations do not coincide with reality.
Relaxation and meditation help relieve physical and emotional stress, improve overall health. On the day, just half an hour is enough to enjoy relaxation, but the effect appears instantaneous. Thoughts and body form a single whole, this leads to harmonization of the general state.
Relaxation and meditation can be accompanied by pleasant music that will help a person to tune in to the necessary wave. In relaxation techniques, visualization techniques are used. So, for example, in order to feel weightlessness, a person can imagine that he is a bird, feel the feeling of flight, the whiff of the wind, the lightness of a floating body, the image of the presented species below. Thanks to this technique, a person begins to feel a surge of strength and energy.
Yoga meditation is a special method, because during the practice the person brings his body and thoughts into harmony, with the help of meditation, relaxation and exercise techniques (asanas). A person practicing yoga meditation acquires strength, both physical and spiritual.
