What is meditation?
I’m glad you asked! To put it simply, meditation is all about focusing the mind and concentrating on things such as your breath, for example
It can also be seen as daydreaming (with a purpose), which works well with the Laws of the Universe.( I’ll address them all in a separate post, but I digress)
In my experience, you don’t have to sit in lotus pose if you choose not to. It’s as simple as either laying down, or, sitting in a comfortable chair.
You can even listen to your favorite music of choice. And, if you’re laying down meditating, try not to fall asleep; if you do, that’s great. You’ve made your body and mind relaxed, the trick is to not fall asleep so keep practicing!
As for what to meditate on? That solely depends on you, dear reader. For beginners I’d say to focus on your breathing
Focus on feeling your breath on the inhale, and on the exhale. In through your nose, out through your mouth. Or whichever is comfortable for you.
What works for me, may not work for you, so bear that in mind as you learn different techniques.
I am an advocate for doing your own research on topics, and I would highly suggest you research it as well. You may learn new techniques, whether its for visualizing or breathing.
I love to learn new things so let me know in the comments anything you want to add, or teach
