I’m going to show you the easiest way you can start meditating right now.
Even if you’ve never meditated before.
You’ll feel so relaxed and focused you’ll want to meditate every day.
Great! Here we go…
As you read every word of this article you’ll notice your focus is drawn completely to the words as you fully comprehend everything you read.
Completely focus on the task at hand.
As you continue reading…
…one line to the next…
…You are already meditating.
You see, meditation is nothing mystical or mysterious.
There’s no need to travel to a secluded area or locking yourself away in a smokey incense filled room.
By simply focusing your entire attention on the here and now, you are meditating.
And as you continue to read you can start to notice your breath.
Notice your breath as it enters your nostrils…
…as it moves down into your lungs…
…and flows effortlessly back out.
Gradually become aware of your entire body…
Simply be in the moment.
Allow any distracting thoughts of yesterday and tomorrow to simply drift away on the tide of your subconscious.
Meditation is nothing more than total focus.
When you focus entirely on the present moment you actually synchronize the two hemispheres of your brain, so that there is no disconnect between your subconscious mind and your conscious mind.
This means that you have a free-flow of creativity and new ideas pouring in from your subconscious, as if in a dream.
Only now, you are wide awake and able to put these ideas to practical use.
Compare this to the usual state of so-called “awareness” people usually experience throughout the day…
The conscious mind is easily distracted and prone to information overload because it cannot filter out useless information.
The subconscious mind is fully asleep and instead of offering up useful insights, it plagues you with daydreams about the past or the future, further distracting the conscious mind with worries and anxiety.
Meditation trains your brain to operate in a state of full awareness when you need it.
Practicing meditation daily will give you a laser focus that makes your more effective at everything you do.
It will also provide you with the discipline to actually follow through on any project you set out to accomplish.
Think about it for a moment.
Have you ever set a goal for yourself and never followed through simply because “life happened” and the everyday distractions pulled you back into your usual routines?
When was the last time you promised yourself you’d take action to drastically improve your finances, your health, or your relationships… only to end up right back where you started?
Wouldn’t it feel great to have total confidence in your ability to achieve anything you wanted?
It all comes back to focus, so let’s get back to the purpose of this article.
I promised you the easiest meditation technique for beginners.
So here it is…
Focus on your breathing.
Yep, that’s it.
It’s the easiest method there is because you can do it whenever and wherever you please to refresh yourself and enter a state of calm and relaxed focus.
Simply be aware of your breath flowing in and out.
Don’t interfere with your breathing, just pay attention it.
You may notice that you can only hold your focus for a few seconds.
And that’s fine.
Just do it again.
Each time you’ll find you can go a little bit longer.
You can do this exercise any time, even while you’re working, so use it as often as possible.
The whole purpose of this meditation is to strengthen your ability to focus.
After a couple weeks of daily practice you’ll find that you can hold your attention on any one thing for 5 minutes 10 minutes , 20 minutes, or more.
You’ll also notice yourself being generally more aware of your feelings, your thoughts, your body and your surroundings.
Instead of your attention darting about aimlessly, draining your mental and emotional energy with worry and anxiety, you’ll be able to focus it like a laser on any task you want to accomplish.
Really you could focus on anything you wanted and get the same results, but breathing will be the most important part of your future meditation training so it’s best that you get familiar with it now.
Using your breath as the focus point also has a funny way of relaxing you and allowing you to breath easier, which promotes overall better health.
So start practicing if you aren’t already!
Once you feel that you’ve made some progress you can move on to more advanced meditation techniques.
You can also speed up your progress with some good meditation music.
