Video on YouTube is a private video but you will still be able to see it as I shared it here.

The audio may be quiet at times and for this I apologize. I used a different computer and the settings were not correct.

 

 

Meditation is experiencing a state of pure awareness. Through calming the mind and emotions you can experience a state of peace and tranquility. Meditation is a simple technique that can be learned in a few minutes. To master it requires continued practice, guidance and mature knowledge of the process.

Through the practice of meditation and the observation of your thoughts, you develop the power to discriminate between those thoughts that are useful and those that are not. From the state of meditation you can experience both negative and positive emotions and maintain the knowledge of the peaceful Self.

Meditation is also known to relax the body and reverse the damaging effects of stress. It also eases tension, anxiety and depression.

THE MEDITATION OF BREATH COUNTING

  • Sit with your back comfortably straight, your head and neck aligned with the spine as much as possible.
  • Gently close your eyes.
  • You will be counting the exhalations of your breath, your breathing out.
  • Strive to be aware of just your counting and to be as fully aware as possible.
  • All of your attention is gently and firmly and repeatedly brought to bear on this activity.
  • The goal is to have your whole being involved in the counting.
  • Any thoughts, feelings, impressions, sensory perceptions, etc. are a wandering away from the instructions.
  • Count up to four and then repeat. You can use the word “and” in between the counting.
  • Try to practice at least 10 minutes a day.

Be sure to share on the Email Forum any questions that you may have. You can also share your experiences.
