Mindset, Awareness & Meditation / How do YOU meditate?
« on: 2016 11 10 - 02:20 »
There are of course many ways to meditate... But how do YOU meditate?

I'm not super experienced when it comes to meditation but I've done it to and fro for extended periods of my life.
I have also gone through the 10 day Vipassana meditation retreat, which was nice. But I found that the Vipassana type of meditation does not appeal to me personally.

The way I meditate is very simple:

- I sit down on my knees with a narrow pillow under my ankles and another pillow under my butt.
- Then I set a timer for however long I want the session to last (usually about 15 minutes up to at most an hour).
- I then aim to keep a totally blank mind without any thoughts at all.
- When a thought appears (which it inevitably will at times) I don't make a big deal out of it but instead I simply quickly dismiss it, without giving it another thought ;-)
- On days when I feel unbalanced, I sometimes make the session "easier" for me by focusing on my breath instead of on keeping my mind totally empty.

So that's pretty much all I do: Trying to keep my mind totally empty for as long time as possible.

So what is your own method of meditation?

Let's create a list of Inspiring (full lenght) movies!
