Meditating tips for beginners

Updated: Feb 14, 2021

Meditation. Just the word alone can send a person into a small bout with anxiety. There is so much pressure placed on those who are beginning to pick up the habit it's a wonder that anyone makes a serious life change to include it. But while the thought of meditation sends us into a frenzy, the actual act of doing so will give you a sense of peace and control over your life and actions. I have found that these are the best ways to help a beginner at meditation begin to change their patterns into a new lifestyle.

  1. You are literally just starting out so the easiest way to get into a meditative state is to just sit down with your eyes closed and listen to the space, sounds, your thoughts and whatever else tickles your ears on their way past you.

  2. Don't be too hard on yourself about paying attention to your breathing. When I first began to meditate I listened to all of the gurus who said that starting with your breathing exercises were best. The only issue is that I was so concerned with making sure that I counted the breaths the way I was supposed to that I never actually was able to get into the meditative state that I was so busy seeking.

  3. Schedule the time to meditate. Since meditation is not already a habit that you have formed both yourself and those around you are not used to the type of environment that you will need in order to be successful. This means that, if needed, you should tell the people closest to you when you will be meditating so that others can be a bit more considerate of the sounds that they make; in order for them not to distract you while you are in the astral realm.

  4. Relax! This is why we are here. To receive the calming energies of harnessing our chi through meditation. There is no finish line that you are racing towards. This journey in particular is all about growth of the self through the manifestations of our dreams. Using mediation you can focus your magic to a more guided and balanced endeavor.

  5. Timing is not everything. Taking your time to savor the moments that have been given to us is another lesson that can be learned from mediation. Whether you feel the need to meditate for ten minutes or an hour, it is worthwhile. Don't judge your ability to meditate by how long others say you should. Judge your progress by how much more in-tune you feel with yourself and those around you.
