Part 7 of the “Goals In Life – Starting The Year On The Right Foot” Series
Another thing I do to before setting my new years resolutions and goals in life for the coming year, is meditate a lot. One of the most common questions I get asked when I suggest to my clients to meditate is, “How do I practice meditation?”
So here’s a very simple beginners technique on how to practice meditation.
Simply sit still, be comfortable, you don’t have to be cross legged or sit in the lotus position.
Now focus you attention of being as physically still as possible. No movements.
This does two things:
1. It gives your busy mind something to do.
2. It eventually quietens down that busy mind.
Meditation Goal Setting
It’s always a great idea to set a goal for your meditation practice. Each meditation session may have a different goal or the same goal. For example you might set the goal to sit still for five minutes. You may then extend that time frame. You may also set the goal to go deeper into your meditation or have an awakening experience. Up to you what goal you set.
Meditation goal setting can be applied also to your goals in life. For example if you don’t know what to do, what direction to head in with your life purpose, or if you have some problem you need to solve you can set the meditation goal to finding an answer to the issue before you begin your practice.
Helpful answers are more likely to come to a quiet mind in peace, connected to your Higher Self, than when your mind is whirring around like a tornado of thoughts in all directions. Sitting still, focusing on not moving the body, having set your meditation goal is a good place to start your meditation practice.
