Types Of Gentle Meditation & Their Benefits
Creative Writing Meditation: Transcend focusing on the outcome or the thoughts in your writing. By using a hand instrument, focus on the beautiful action of writing poems, on the forming of the letters on the page. You might also be into calligraphy.
Focus On Anything: Smooth into focusing on something. Perhaps you are gently focusing on your natural breathing patterns. How about a tree or thriving plant in your window? Focusing the distractions from street traffic and other cacophony begins to hold less weight if you let it go that way.
Chanting Meditation:Find a tone your inner spirit finds at least some level of harmony with. Select sound that has tingled your inner vibration in the past. Similar to object based meditation. Consider poetic mantras.
Innovative Labyrinth Meditation: First choose a question, theme and focus your analysis thereon. For more advanced meditation practitioners.
MORE TYPES OF MEDITATION
Zen Play Meditation: An innovative gentle form of Chi Gung (Qi Gung) movement, different from rougher Tai Chi. Loosen your body. Then hold it in a comfortable yet non-traditional posture while sitting or laying down. Tune into being loosely comfortable with a less traditional pose which helps transcend normal thought patterns. By playfully and gently taking a poetic posture if you will, you’ll notice ever so subtle different ways of tuning into nature and your higher consciousness.
Zen Meditation – Zasen: Traditional zen meditation. Visit one of the many Japanese Zen temples around the world. Or study Zen and practice it in nature or your home.
Sitting Breath Or Mantra Meditation:
Methods include focusing on breath from your abdomen. Repeating your secret mantra.
Heart Meditation: Consciously cultivate a feeling of love for others and yourself. Variations can be to focus on: enhancing your subtle enchanting side, compassion, gratitude, compassion, humility, fearlessness, and tenderness. Remember the importance of love, without letting others run over you. It is easier to start being open with people you feel are likeminded about love and compassion.
Cosmic Meditation: Enhance your connection with nature on the planet and the skies of the universe. Night time in nature at the time of your choosing is a great way to start.
Light Flame Meditation: Focus on the flame of a candle. Accept the flame’s flickers and your wandering mind. Stay focused on the poetic beauty of the flame.
