I've heard people go on about meditation and stuff like that but... how do you do it and whats the purpouse? to relax?
I can do that in front of the tv.. lol
Usually to reach a deep state of meditation you use a mantra. Which is a word that makes you comfortable, a name, place, object. Anything, you could use "Buddha" for example. Saying the word repetitively will induce a sort of trance and eventually you will be saying it with no effort or realization that the word is being spoken. Eventually you will enter a deep state of seclusion within your mind. At that point meditation will begin, meditation can become very intense. I meditate quite regularly and through it I have seen visions, or calmly reflected on life, through which I have come to many realizations. My recommendation on where to meditate would just be somewhere that relaxes you and makes you the most comfortable. For me I usually meditate outside when it's dark during warmer months, and inside my room with the lights off, usually with candles or incense lit when it gets to be colder. It usually helps when you are first starting to meditate to be somewhere very quiet. As you progress low playing instrumental music can help induce the trance like state. Hope this helps! Good luck with meditation.
My friend meditates. It is good for stress and for asthma (she does it because she suffers from depression and feel that it works somewhat for her).
Basically you sit in a quiet place, with your legs folded, up right and breathe in deeply for 10 minutes or so and try not to think about anything but the breathing.
hey medatation is all about being calm , and trying to relax yourself take deep breaths and picture a place where you would feel at peace some religions think that when you medatate you need to empty your mind , in christianity medatation is about focusing your mind on god ... :)
You do it in a quite place, and where you feel relax taking deep breaths and forgething everything around you. GOOD LUCK:)
