Calm Your Thoughts



There are many, many web sites you can Google on to find info and help on meditation. Here's a link to view some simple videos on the matter: http://www.how-to-meditate.org/videos/ It's nothing more than noticing your breath, being aware of your breath as you breathe in and then out, and being aware of thoughts that arise in your mind during the process. When thoughts come floating in, just calmly notice them, then let them go like a soft cloud floating by.

Why meditate? Because we all absorb wordly noise, thoughts, and emotions daily. Most of it is clutter in the mind that can create negative energy in the body. So, relax..........let's meditate. It's soooooooooo EASY!

A LESSON IN MEDITATION

Concentration on the Breath
A very simple way of meditating is concentrating on your breath. The breath is like a bridge between your body and mind. When you concentrate on your breath for a while, your body becomes relaxed and your mind becomes peaceful.
Sit in a comfortable position with your back straight.
Place your hands in your lap with the left hand on the bottom.
Keep your eyes half-closed or closed.
Concentrate on the tip of your nose. Notice your breath going in and out.

Lotus posture
Full lotus is the best sitting posture. Begin by sitting in half-lotus, then work your way up to full lotus.
Full-lotus- Sit on the edge of a cushion. Place your left ankle on your right thigh. Then lift your right ankle onto your left thigh.
Half-lotus- Lift your left ankle onto your right thigh.
