Mindful Meditation - What Is It?



Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be wholly immersed in whatever we are doing, and not get influenced by or be sensitive or overwhelmed by what’s going on nearby. Remember that mindfulness is naturally present within us and is more accessible when we practice it routinely. In this article, we're going to go over a simple routine to practice mindful meditation, and get a taste for how it can affect you.


Getting Started: Mantra


Let’s start our mantra with chanting Om.

  • Take a deep breath and chant a long Om 3 times.

Why do we chant Om 3 times? Chanting Om has both physical and mental effects on us, as it calms our mind and in return calms our nervous system. It symbolizes the past, the present and the future. Listening to the mantra leads to silence and expanded consciousness. It teaches us to be happy with ourselves and with who we are.


Let’s bring awareness to what we are directly experiencing through our senses. The goal of mindful meditation is to rouse up our inner mechanisms of our mental, emotional, and physical processes. Meditation is exploring ourselves, finding our deepest feelings and thoughts and bringing it to the forefront and uniting it. This can happen through focus. Bring your thoughts to your breathing, your inhalation and exhalation.


  • Find a position that is relaxing and get comfortable.

  • So-Inhalation. Hum: Exhalation

This offers a focal point for the mind. Let’s focus on the lamp or you can close your eyes and find the inner light and focus on it. Let yourself go; you do not exist. When we meditate, we try to understand the mechanisms of our minds, our emotions, and thoughts.


Mindfulness meditation is non-judgmental, and it releases our natural interest about the mechanisms of the mind, approaching our experience with warmth and kindness, to ourselves and others. Don’t judge yourself for whatever thoughts collect up, just practice recognizing when your mind has wandered off, and gently bring it back.


  • Now gently open your eyes, perform a namaskar, you will feel so relaxed and energetic. Take care of yourself and enjoy the rest of your day.


Challenges


Meditation though simple is not necessarily easy. It is infuriatingly difficult to prevent our minds from wandering off what we’re doing and be pulled in many directions. Meditation mines our innate ability to focus. Start practicing for 10 minutes /day. You can slowly increase the time for meditation.
