Breathing through nose
We can start our meditation by paying attention on our breathing at least for few minutes. This is generally known as ‘Pranayama’. Try to relax with closed eyes and our focus should be on our breathing. Oxygen to our lungs will be provided and breathing be continued through our nose. Wandering mind can be controlled by focusing our attention on the breathing. This practice may be done for few minutes or more. This will make us relax and keep us free from the worldly materialistic life. This is the simplest form of meditation and can be practiced by any person.
Meditation with free mind
Awareness without any object can be practiced with the same benefits. This makes our mind free from all kinds of thoughts. We should adopt this form of meditation with still sitting pose like a lotus or cross-legged and make our mind remain silent for at least ten minutes. It may be little bit difficult but it is not impossible to do because every movement is going on in our mind. We can call it an empty mind meditation and is really beneficial.
A mantra can control our wandering of mind and its very helpful for concentration. We can use any mantra of our liking or provided by our spiritual guru, to meditate. A specific chanting of mantra has divine power which can solve various problems of our lives.
Meditate while walking
This form of meditation can be practiced by any one because it is easy to focus on our breathing while we are walking. Our focus should be on our legs and feet when we are making contact with the ground and breathing attention be continued. We can easily bring our thoughts back by breathing and walking. It is practiced outside the room or we can find some quiet place with level ground to practice it properly.
This type of mediation is called ‘Vipassana Meditation’. It is an art to become aware of the things going on in our mind. We watch our breath and our thoughts, feeling, even sights and sound movement going around us without any involvement or judgment analysis.
An idea may be contemplated in order to focus on, while meditating. It is a method to give us an understanding that our rationalizing mind will not be able to bring us.
