How To Meditate

Meditate Everyday

It is okay if you miss meditation in the morning but be flexible with your time and be sure that you have 10 -15 minutes daily for meditation. Do you say, “I really don’t have time”, well, regular practice of meditation can help you do your work better and faster. So investing 15 minutes is nothing compared to what you get out of it.
 

You will find it easy to go into thoughtlessness and feel the vibrations if you get up early in the morning and meditate for 10 to 15 minutes.                                             . 
 
Place and position to meditate

Find a quiet, comfortable place and sit in a more relaxed position 
 
Don’t fight with thoughts

As soon as you sit for meditation; make yourself aware that you are meditating. Put your pure attention on the top of your head (lymbic area) and then watch yourself in complete silence. Let the time stand still – in the moment and help the time between the thoughts that are landing and taking off expand, so that you are no longer thinking, but rather – thoughtlessly aware. Try saying “ I forgive this thought, I forgive, I forgive”                                                                                                                                     . 
 
Don’t try to concentrate on objects

Meditation is not about concentrating, focusing, visualization or trying to stop your thoughts. It is about letting go and surrendering to the inner silence. Let your Kudnalini do the job. 

 
Learn to communicate with your Kundalini

In meditation, talk with your own Kundalini, humbly ask her to rise within and connect you and give thoughtless awareness. As Kundalini rises you will become self aware, start seeing reflections of your chakras on your finger tips. Cool breeze on your palms. 
 
Meditation – At Home

Short regular sessions work best: To grow in this new awareness, we need to meditate everyday on a regular basis. Begin by enjoying the peace and stillness for as little as ten to 15 minutes a day. Only through regular meditation can we grow and develop our subtle awareness, allowing us to unlock and reveal all of the benefits. Shri Mataji’s photo emits vibrations. In a quiet place, set the framed photo on a table with a lighted candle in front. Burning incense may help you to focus your attention. Sit on the floor or on a chair in a comfortable position facing the photo. Open your hands and place them palm-upward on your lap. 
Close your eyes. Just relax, bring your attention inside into the heart and allow it to rise gently to the top of the head. Try to keep your awareness there, and sit quietly without thinking for 10 to 15 minutes or until you feel you have done enough. In this state of thoughtless awareness, you don’t need to say any affirmations or concentrate on anything. Just be aware of any sensations throughout the body, especially on the head or hands. Gradually, the more you practice, the more your mind will become still. If thoughts do come, try to watch them or say ‘not this thought, not this thought’ to yourself.                                                   .

Meditate with others( Collective Meditation )

In the company of other practitioners, your Kundalini is able to work much more effectively. You grow fastest when you meditate collectively so see if you can meditate with others at home. It is recommended that you attend a weekly meditation centre nearby you. 
 
The benefits gradually become your life:

Almost immediately, with regular meditation, you will find that you are feeling more relaxed and at peace. The Joy begins to return into your life. Also, gradually over the first few weeks or so of regular meditation you will start to feel various sensations on your hands, or throughout your body at the chakras. This is a very good sign, indicating a growing awareness of the subtle body within. You may also notice that you become more peaceful in your behaviour.
