Ways for beginners to practice meditation
Many people think that yoga meditation is very mysterious. In fact, the state of meditation is similar to that when people are asleep. They are in a state of tranquility, seeking inner self in the search for self and restoring self, thus discovering the great power in the bodyIt’s just that in sleep, people unconsciously forget themselves, while the former is in awake state.
The following introduces the basic elements of meditation for beginners, which can help you quickly enter the realm of meditation and experience the true meaning of yoga.
Beginner’s meditation time: freely arrange according to the situation, there is no clear rule, the general principle is to choose a quiet time to enter the meditation state as soon as possible.
Place: A quiet, noisy, and undisturbed place.
Body requirements: Minimize body weight, ideal after defecation or before eating.
(At this time, the nerves and the five senses-vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch are the most sensitive, which can improve the meditation effect.) Posture: 1, sitting, keep upright, sit cross-legged is better, but also take into account comfort, not forced.
2. The spine is straight, as if held by a rope hanging from the ceiling.
3. Relax your hands. Place the palms of your hands upwards. The thumb and forefinger circle into an “O” shape, and the remaining three fingers will naturally flatten.
4. Raise your chin slightly, close your eyes gently, and close your eyes to the tip of your nose. After you get used to it, close your eyes halfway and gaze at the place in front.
(For beginners, it is definitely easier to close your eyes to enter the meditation state) Breathing: Breathe repeatedly with your nose, naturally, and gently, as if you have forgotten even the breathing itself.
Time: It doesn’t matter how long it is, whether it is 3 minutes or 5 minutes, but 30 minutes is ideal.
