Have you ever thought about starting the process of meditation but don’t know where to begin? Meditation allows you to calm a restless mind that is always on the go. Through various breathing techniques and meditation types, you can learn to become a happier and calm person.
This is a type of meditation that you do not focus on any one object. Instead you think about it being quiet and empty. This is the purpose behind all types of meditation really, it is the process of training your mind so that you can discover inner silence and a deeper state of consciousness. This will allow the type of thinking to become effortless and will happen whenever you sit down to meditate.
Metta meditation is sometimes also referred to as loving meditation. The practice originated from Buddhist meditations and has roots within the compassion types of meditation. The benefits to this type of meditation include increasing feelings of empathy for others, creating a positive emotion for those around you, and having a more loving feeling for everyone else other than yourself. Position yourself into the proper meditation position and keep your eyes closed. You will want to start to think about a loving kindness feeling towards others around you. It’s best to start with yourself first then work your way through these types of people:
· A friend
· A person who is neutral to you
· A person who is difficult for you
· Every one of these types of people
· The universe
Through this type of meditation, you will start to want the best for everyone around you, even those you may not like. Meditation will help you to remove the negativity in your life and replace it with feelings of love and positivity.
