Things You Should Know About Zen Meditation
We all have to deal with stress from either work or school. You can’t close your eyes to make it go away but you can find peace so you can deal with it. One technique that can offer this is called Zen meditation.
Zen meditation is often referred to as the study of the self. It involves sitting in various postures so you are able to bring the mind and body to a peaceful and stable condition. This happens as you focus on images and thoughts that just pop up as your heart rate slows down until you reach a reflective state of meditation.
One of the best seating positions to do this is called the Burmese position. There is also the full lotus, half lotus, kneeling or “seiza” posture and sitting on a chair.
The key here is to keep your back straight so that your deep breathing will go naturally. This allows more oxygen to enter that will help cleanse and energize the body.
The buttocks must be thrust out and the chin tucked in. The hands should be placed close to the body with the left hand resting on top of the right with palms open and up. The joint of the middle fingers are resting on top of the other with the thumbs slightly touching.
Your eyes should be half closed and your head should be positioned to a 45-degree angle towards the body. Given that it is not easy to keep the eyes like this the whole time, you can try closing them first and then open them later on. Should you get sleepy, just open them wide.
The challenging part is staying in a stationary position for 15 to 20 minutes. After you have developed a breathing pattern, you slowly relax the muscles from your face all the way down to your feet. As it slows down and oxygen enters, you should focus on positive thoughts and exhale those that are negative.
By concentrating, you are able to unite the body, mind, and soul so that your mind is aware of only the present and no longer the past or the unforeseeable future.
Aside from the right posture, you should always wear loose clothing. It is not wise to practice this after a heavy meal because a full stomach usually creates discomfort which in itself is a distraction.
If you would like to learn Zen Meditation, you can read about it or better yet join a group. Once you get the hang of things, you can even buy a few accessories to make the experience a fruitful one like incense sticks, a bell or even a ringing bowl to mark the start and end of a session.
Short incense sticks burn for about 45 minutes while the longer ones are double the time. You can even use the kitchen timer since no one will be there to ring the bell to say time is up.
Zen meditation experts recommend that beginners should try for 10 minutes first until you get used to it before you decide to extend this for 20 or 30 minutes. Should your mind wander off, concentrate a little harder to focus once again on your breathing so your thoughts will settle down naturally.
Using Meditation Through Music
Clearing your mind through meditation is one of the most peaceful ways you can find to just relieve all the tension you have in your body.
Once your mind and body are relaxed you can start to just enjoy some time to yourself. I know that most of us listen to the radio at some point of the day. You may enjoy music ranging from country to easy listening, to disco, soft rock, classic country, or even bluegrass.
Whatever kind of music you enjoy you can find this as a very relaxing way of meditation.
For a lot of you that are in good physical shape and like to exercise in a gym at home or even by jogging, you want to be able to free your mind of a lot of things that have bothered you through the day. If you are out and about doing your exercises take a smartphone with you and just put it on a station that you really like and let the music just relax all of your tension. One of the things I find relaxing is listening to music while I am working on the computer.
I have found free meditation podcasting sites and have taken the time to download my all time favorite songs. I transfer the songs I enjoy into my windows media player and play my music every day when I am on the computer.
I just quietly sing along to my favorite music relax and just meditate about my day. I actually use my keyboard a lot and have to do a lot of typing about different subjects. I have found that if I am not completely relaxed and my mind clear I will make many mistakes in my work which I can’t afford to do.
I know I need to be completely relaxed so I pull up my windows media player and play my most favorite songs that will help me to use mediation to get my work done. After having a busy long hard day and I know I still have to drive home and start my routine of helping kids with homework, giving the kids a bath and getting them to bed.
As soon as I get in my car and I think about all the things I will have to do I turn on the music, clear my mind and relax and meditate. After I get all my work done I put the kids to bed and the house is very quiet I listen to my music and just clear my mind and gather my thoughts so I then can start the next day with a clear head.
So whether you enjoy meditating by exercising, shopping, or listening to your favorite music you will find once you have released all of your tension you can then start to feel good about yourself and when you feel good about yourself you can then feel good about your life.
