​​​​​​MEDITATION 

There are many definitions of MEDITATION – some people understand it as sitting quietly for a while, some – as a process of contemplation, some – see it as techniques for quieting the mind.

MEDITATION – is an art of being AWARE of what is happening inside and around you

Meditation itself is not a technique, but rather a state of alertness and full undivided presence in the moment.

I personally would have never had enough patience to practice sitting down quietly until I start connecting with the energy inside and outside of me and learn how to disengage with fluctuations of my mind to meditate. And if I did, I am not sure I would have seen the results in this lifetime…

My way into meditation was through the movement of my body.

We are so immersed in “leaving in our thoughts”, that sitting down and finding a window, a crack in reality into the magic of Universal Nothingness may take an extraordinary stressful situation, which can stress down and shift our awareness or years and years of practice. It’s much easier to “loose our mind” in our body. Allowing the body to move in simple patterns we can occupy our mind with just WITNESSING the flow.

Anchoring attention in mindful breathing and witnessing the effect of the body moving on our inner being serves two purposes:

  • The mind becomes BUSY “noticing” and can’t focus on a thinking process anymore
  • Our brain begins to release healthy neuro-chemicals such as serotonin, dopamine and endorphins. These chemicals trigger positive emotions and produce feelings of euphoria and happiness (in yogi world we call it a BLISS)


Other “side” effects include:
- Blood pressure comes to normal

- Parasympathetic nervous system reboots and triggers deep relaxation
- Digestion sets back on track
- Tensions, which cause health issues if maintained continuously for long periods of time, release


HEALING just happens without any external involvement
Your “addiction” to the depth of your own inner world becomes more profound


MINDFULNESS

'Broadly defined, “mindfulness” refers to any practice in which you concentrate and try to remain aware of your experience moment to moment. That experience is anchored by an object (like the breath), an action (like walking), a sound, a sensation (like taste), a visual, etc. and ultimately aims to cultivate mental stability. Some of the following styles of meditation relate to mindfulness, some take the practice further—to a deep level of inquiry—and some rely on different techniques like using an object or manipulating the breath to change your state of consciousness.' – Yoga Journal, “Find Your Meditation Style With These 7 Practices” by Amanda Mascarelli

Meditation styles:

Vipassana (“insight” in Sanskrit) - a variety of meditation techniques that help the practitioner access a deeper level of consciousness, see “reality,” and experience impermanence
Dzogchen - a meditation that asks you to be aware of everything. You practice with the eyes open and avoid labeling thoughts, feelings, or sensations.
Transcendental – while in a seated meditation pose, you focus on a mantra and actively change the breath in order to alter your state of mind.
Kundalini - you are using kriyas (movements coupled with breath) to activate and move the energy upward in an effort to change your state of mind
Qi Gong, Tai Chi - Taoist method of meditation performed with movement, where mind is focused on directing the energy flow in specific patterns around the body to eventually alter consciousness.
Zen - a nondual practice that means simply to sit without a focus on an object, until your innate ability to see reality emerges
Dynamic – meditation introduced by Osho, which includes patterns of movement, shaking, dancing or forceful breathing to achieve quietness of the mindType your paragraph here.
