There are different ways to meditate. You could opt to mediate silently, or listen to soothing music designed specifically for meditation. There are also loads of guided meditations available for both christian and circular. I experimented with quite a few on YouTube, and some are better than others. When it comes to mediation, there are so many options available, and these choices could leave you feeling very confused. When I first started to mediate, I tried all of them. I am a truth seeker and I love learning, so I wanted to experience the various ways to meditate. If you are new to meditating, I would advise you to to experiment with the various ways to meditate, until you find the right way perfect for you. Once you successfully create your meditation routine, you will never look back.
People like to think their own way of mediating is best way, but there is no right or wrong way to meditate. I see meditating as a way to receive a response to prayer. Prayer is personal so meditating should be personal as well. As long as your meditation brings the response you seek, then it is the right way for you. Before you can determine the right way to meditate, you need to ask yourself what meditation means to you and what you aim to achieve from meditating. Once you answer these questions, then you can decide on how best to go about your meditation. This will save you time and energy spent pursuing other ways to mediate that won’t work well for you.
The mistake many of us make is to try to copy how others mediate. There are so many rules about meditation from the experts, it is so easy to get carried away and focused on what we don’t believe in. Some say you should meditate for around 20 – 30 minutes everyday, others say you should sit down while meditating, many others think it is better to lie down. When it comes to mediation, the rules are endless. However, at the end of the day, the choice is yours. Try the different ways and make your meditation session your own. That way you gain a lot more from every session. Tune out the noise and tune into yourself.
