HOW TO MEDITATE

Getting started:
Meditating can be a simple quieting of your mind. We offer Guided journeys that bring you inner peace and a way to clear your mind for your “wisdom” and “intuition” to come through. These meditations can bring more energy flow and light to your life so that each day can be lived from a place of quiet inner direction. With these meditations you can feel more emotionally in balance living a divinely guided life. When your trust your thoughts, you trust your life. With an open heart we wish you a peaceful and light filled journey.

WHAT POSITION TO MEDITATE:

Meditation is all about “energy” flow and quieting the mind. To start, we suggest that your posture is upright with your feet on the flow in a “comfortable” relaxed position. Posture is very important when getting started, so find the perfect placement for “your body” and “spirit”. A good way to GET STARTED is to listen to our HARMONY- INTRODUCTION meditation journey FIRST …

QUIETING YOUR THOUGHTS:

We have found that the next step getting started with your meditation journey is to quiet your thoughts.  Now this is not an easy task! Thoughts can be like busy little children jumping from thought to thought. A wise suggestion may be to FOCUS you mind on a peaceful
place. It could be a soft and gentle breeze in a meadow, it could be a calm lake reflecting the beautiful light of the Sun .. whatever quiets YOUR MIND. Remember, what you resist, persists!

So whatever thoughts come, do not struggle to push them away, simply let them flow by…
DETACHMENT is the KEY to meditation so let the thoughts flow and they will go…

LENGTH OF MEDITATIONS:

The amount of time you meditate can vary greatly. If you are somewhat new to meditating you may need to start out with shorter periods of time. We would suggest perhaps 7 to 10 minutes in the beginning. As you grow, or if you are already experienced at meditation, you may want to expand the time to 15 to 20 minutes. You will find your own comfort zone for meditating.

HOW OFTEN TO MEDITATION:

We have found that the daily practice of meditation usually brings the best results for a more relaxed and peaceful mind. You may find that the mornings are the best time to meditation.

Upon awakening, find the perfect meditation chair for yourself and try and be consistent in going to that place every time you meditate. You may notice that the more you meditate in that spot, the more peaceful energy you have built up in this place. Others may feel that BEFORE you go to sleep is the best time for meditation. This way you can “let go” of the daily stresses and events of the day and calm you body, mind and soul therefore bringing a much more restful sleep.

IN CONCLUSION..

As you begin to experience the world of meditation, you will find your own personal preference in how often to meditate, how long to meditate, and WHEN to meditate. There is no right or wrong,
there is only your personal journey fits your world…

Alma Pacífica has many “types” of journeys for very specific reasons, SO the frequency with which you meditate may depend on the TYPES of meditation journey you choose. You may do a DAILY RELAXATION meditation to stay in a the flow of life. For more specific journeys, you may find that you use these journeys at different times of the days. For instance, our meditation journey on HARMONY may be a daily meditation for you if your life tends to have more stress and you may want to use this meditation before you go to sleep. If you simply want to have a more loving relationship, you may listen to Love & Relationships when you first get up to set the tone of your day.

WE WISH YOU MUCH JOY, HARMONY & WISDOM AND LIGHT ON THIS JOURNEY CALLED LIFE
