Today I’ve been continuing my mission to discover all the best cultural and spiritual techniques from around the world, and to bring them together into this one website. Note: I talk a lot more about how junk information affects our minds in my ebook Mindfulness and Meditation Techniques for Beginners. People are often disappointed when my first piece of advice on how to concentrate is to say “Watch less TV, use the computer less, consume less junk information.” It’s not dissimilar to food. But we want to watch TV, we want to use Facebook and Twitter and we want to be able to idly chat. 2)      Close your eyes and focus your mind on your breath as it enters and leaves through your nose. 1)      Sit comfortably with good posture, or lie down or stand up (I prefer sitting but it is not important provided you are still and have good posture). 4)      If you find that you are experiencing the same thought over and over, try this technique. In this article you have learnt three new meditation techniques that you can use to develop your concentration. Simply trying to trace the origins of dynamic meditation is the proverbial mystery wrapped in a riddle inside an enigma. As with many spiritual practices, dynamic meditation really finds its roots in Hinduism– even if it has evolved significantly over time. In temples throughout India, and particularly in East and South India, spiritual dance used to be a part of a sacred ritual, where devadasi’s (girls dedicated to worship) worshipped the divine through a complex system of gestures and mimes. Modern Christianity also uses a form of spiritual dance meditation to bring a person closer to God.
Judaism also involves a sacred dance meditation: the messianic dance or Davidic dance (in reference to King David, who is said to have danced before the Ark of the Covenant).
Buddhists also use ritual dances and spiritual dancing, and it’s here that dynamic meditation began to take shape. The butterfly dance is a dance for novices which incorporates lotus flowers and costumes that depict butterflies.
If you like to travel you will probably have seen many different types of meditative movements that are not strictly religious or spiritual. Iran and Turkey also use similar unconscious movement and spiritual dancing meditation exercises. Clearly there are very many ways in which movement and spiritual dance have been incorporated into spirituality and religion. When I was finishing drama school back in 2004 my acting teacher said to me “Imagine there are curtains closed around your mind.
Looking back on that time when my drama teacher told me to open the curtains of my mind, one of the main reasons why his words resonated with me was because they were unquestionably true. My acting teacher had pointed out something about myself that had been going on for years, but something I’d never realised. The student is stumped, because although it is obvious that they should live the moments of their lives, they don’t. Or the last time you made love, and you felt a deep and profound connection, and it was like the world stopped and there was just the two of you. Now, recent scientific study has revealed how you can prevent depression naturally by doing just one thing. If you are, then like me, you’ve noticed that there are literally hundreds of different websites for psychic readings. People have used this mantra to eliminate other people in their lives and to crush competition.

This week, a meditation to relax youA  before bedtimea€¦BENEFITS: Sleep deprivation is a serious health problem in our overly busy, stress-filled world. And I’ve just discovered something truly exceptional: the most powerful sleep mantras in the world. They go in search of wisdom and to learn the rich spiritualities that permeate the very fabric of the country.
Every day they’re creating inspiring content that connects people to their deeper, spiritual selves.
Do you consciously make every action as polite, professional, and well mannered as humanly possible? There’s a saying that whenever you are trying to accomplish something you should put you’re all into it. We need to understand that our minds has its limits, that the more information we put into it, the less space we have to work with. There are three specific types of Buddhist meditation for concentration that I personally advocate.
So many different spiritualities and religions have used what could be called “dynamic meditations” or “dance meditations”. Hindus believe that the entire universe is the manifestation of the Supreme Dancer Nataraja. This sacred ritual evolved to become the South Indian Classical Dance, which is still practiced today. This spiritual dance is slow, quiet and meditative, and is backed by peaceful Buddhist chants. In Japan, for instance, one very popular type of exercise is Katsugen Undo (regenerating exercise). The Mevlevi Dervish is a spontaneous type of movement that, like Katsugen Undo, involves giving up control of the body.
If you were to look up the definition of meditation you might hear talk of Buddhism and Hinduism, or neuroscience. We’re told that we need to live in the moment, to be mindful of the world and of ourselves, to experience the fullness of being.
Preventing depression naturally is one of the best things you can do for your mental health. The Dalai Lama’s Atlus Of Emotions was commissioned to help people understand their emotions. This special petting technique will help you to feel the psychic connection between you and your cat.
Experts suggest that we need a minimum of eight to nine hours to be at our best physically and mentally. Once deciphered it could change our understanding of the Romans and affect the way we think about history and our beliefs.
Despite being over 200 years old, and sitting in meditation position on the floor, the monk’s body has miraculously remained in excellent preservation. From time to time I will be updating this guide so follow me on my Facebook Profile or Twitter for updates.
All enlightened spiritualists know that the answers to most health problems lies not in a bottle of pills, but within the deep recesses of the human mind. While there, they take the opportunity to learn Hinduism, Buddhism, and yoga from spiritual gurus.
If so, you may well be on your way to success, but you could also be heading to a life of unhappiness. But when 90% of our mind is consumed by irrelevant information, how can we possibly focus 100%? You will find that this technique silences all thoughts, creates a deep state of inner peace and significantly improves your concentration.
In this article we’ll dip into the history of dance meditation before discussing dynamic meditation techniques and its many amazing benfits. All Hindu gods have their own style of dance and there are 23 celestial Apsaras, beings who dance to please the gods and who express the supreme truths via their movements.
It is said that many of those who perform the South Indian Classical Dance are incarnations of apsaras. It’s a wonderful exercise in which you give up your conscious control of your body and allow your body to heal itself. These Sufi movements are said to have been created when Rumi was walking through a marketplace one day. For years I’d been living my life inside my head, not truly living in the moment or experiencing the full richness of life. While you might believe that you will never be depressed, reality is that every year millions of people develop depression and most of those people, like yourself, thought they too would never get depressed. Because truth is, if you were living in a computer simulation you would never actually know it.

In order to create the website the Dalai Lama paid psychologist (who was involved on Disney’s Inside Out and the TV show Lie To Me) a whopping $750,000. When hammerhead sharks attack humans, nearby dolphins will risk their own lives to fend off the shark and protect the human.
Ten minutes ago I was sitting here typing away on my latest article, starting to feel a little stressed and, truth be told, a little mindless. We recommend picking one up to add to your meditation room, or perhaps even picking all four up as they make for wonderful decorations for the home.
We’ve gone ahead and learnt everything about this mantra, partly because it is so fascinating, but also because I have been asked by specific friends to cover it for them. It’s important to pick a mala that you like visually, as well as one that feels right spiritually.
Realistically, though, we tend to get more like seven hours sleep a night.This meditation will help clear your head and induce relaxation and sleep, thereby strengthening your immune system. The karuna hand gesture has been proven to cure anxiety and depression and to create heightened levels of happiness.
When I was in my early 20s I wanted to be perfect, and I wanted to behave perfectly in every situation.
Consider the amount of noise you put into your mind through all kinds of sources: social media, TV, movies, video games, idle chatter and so on. For instance, if you are suffering from negative thought depression and keep hearing same depressing thought over and over in your mind, you can use this meditation to remove the thought. He heard the goldbeaters hammering rhythmically away and in a state of bliss he spontaneously broke into dance, spinning in a circle. You took your car and drove off somewhere quiet, to the park, for instance, because you needed to chill out. If your entire life were a computer simulation you would still accept it as life, and never know any different. Most meditation techniques aren’t subject to such a hailstorm of media scrutiny, celebrity endorsements, and online debate.
You want to know that your free psychic reading is being done by a true professional who knows what they are doing.
Thai Buddha Meditation Statue This Buddha statue is 8 inches by 6 inches and is a perfect addition to any meditation space. Thanks to the extra comfort granted by high quality cushions, you’ll find that you are able to relax more and to go deeper. Meditation malas are important for helping you to count while meditating (they are usually used for counting the number of times you have chanted a mantra, or for counting your breaths). Thanks to these powerful mantras even the worst insomniacs are getting a good night’s sleep. The average person’s mind is so full of junk information that it can be very hard to silence the mind and concentrate. With all the stress and pressure put on us, it’s no wonder than most of us are not mindful, we’re consumed by thoughts about money, work, family, health, and other issues. And then you sat there in the park not doing anything, just relaxing, just focusing on the moment. Now imagine if one of the other characters in this simulated world, let’s say a scientist, was trying to discover the truth of reality. Ensure that your curtains or shades are closed to keep out any lights from the outside world. So, if you yourself are suffering from any sort of negative state, I highly recommend that you use the Karuna technique. Okay, before I get into my list of the best spiritual blogs, I have to apologise to some people.
Next suggest an alternative thought “I AM good enough.” Finally return to focussing on your breathing. In Indian traditions, Chakras are the energy points or nodes in the body, the points through which nadi pass. Best Meditation Cushions To Buy Zafu Yoga Cushion The Zafu Yoga cushion looks modern and is highly fashionable. But at the same time, the karana mudra is not exclusively for people suffering from depression. In hindsight, I wish I had confronted negative situations in my life with a positive attitude.
STEP THREE: Now, with each in-breath, breathe in peace, and with eachA  out-breath, breathe out all the cares of your day.
