Meditation Peace and Serenity

Updated on July 21, 2017

Meditation helps you center yourself and calm your mind. You may find yourself drawn towards meditation because you need to have composure and peace in your own life.

Learn to Let Go of Things

Meditation for Stress

Working long hours, escalating costs, and personal turmoil and tribulations leave you angry and on the edge.

The one thing that all beings have in common is that we want to steer clear of misery, pain and suffering. When you are angry, upset and stressed out, you feel find everything incomprehensible and unfathomable. Emotions such as anger, fear, anguish, jealousy and depression are set off by external factors as well as your thoughts. There is nothing wrong with emotions; however, trouble sets in when you let these emotions take over your life. Identify and recognize your emotions and you will learn how your thoughts throw you in to an agitated state.

When you meditate identify and label your emotions and thoughts. This helps you understand your emotional patterns. It will reveal to you which emotion dominates your mind and will help to extract you from the negative and unconstructive emotion.

Meditate on a regular basis; notice how you become more aware of your emotions in your day to day life. It will be easier for you to accept your emotions and not get carried away by them. Developing the ability to focus and concentrate under deadlines at work will make life easier for you.

All Beings Want to be Happy

Meditation to Calm your Mind

When you are awake, you are relentlessly and constantly thinking. Your mind tends to jump from one thought to another ceaselessly, just like a monkey leaping from branch to branch. This mediation will help you to be more mindful of what you are thinking and will calm you down.

  • Keep a pencil and book handy before starting your session. Take a few deep breaths. Focus on your thoughts. Notice how your mind jumps from one topic to another seamlessly.
  • Stop; try to think what you were thinking 2 minutes ago. Trace how you got to what you are thinking right now. Make a ‘star’ on the paper every time your thought changes.
  • Bring this awareness in to your everyday life. Try to not get lost in thought. Be more mindful of what you are thinking.

Benefits of Meditating

  • This meditation helps you to be more mindful of your thoughts.
  • It reveals to you your erratic thought processes.
  • Improves focus and concentration.
  • Generates love, empathy and compassion.
  • Teaches you to let go of wanting to control every single thing.

Peace Starts with Me

Also, remember that your posture when you meditate plays a crucial role in your practice. Meditation can be done whilst sitting, standing, reclining or walking, on the other hand, experts recommend sitting in the classical seven point meditation posture. The correct posture helps your mind find peace, strength and control.

      I use to meditate pretty much every day, but am a little more erratic these days. I like the simplicity of this meditation and will definitely try it out. Thanks.
