Last year I began to take meditation seriously, and decided I wanted to incorporate meditation into my daily life. However I just couldn't seem to find the best way that worked for me. I eventually just stopped.
Do you meditate? If so, how often? How did you find what worked for you?
Thank you :) I think prayer and meditation are similar in a way. I find myself praying sometimes just out of habit, as I did pray as a child. But I don't know who I am praying to, as I don't follow a religion and I am still not sure what to believe in.
was the same. I got into crystal meditation, but in the end I didn't find that it helped me relaxed in anyway, so I just stopped. I take yoga classes, and at the end of each session we are meant to do our own private meditation, but I find my mind just wanders.
Thankyou :) I attended a silent meditation retreat last year at a Buddhist Monestary and one of the monks told us to just allow thoughts to come and go, don't attach ourselves to them. This is the hardest part of meditation I think. This is what I struggle with too.
I do meditate, but not regularly. At times I do it two or three times a week, but other times once a week. I find it gives me peace and I often find solutions to any issues I am trying to resolve after a meditation.
No. I can't shut off my mind. I'd be making lists or thinking of stories or what I forgot to do. However, I go to movies at the cinema by myself, and it's the same result for me - I focus outside my thoughts and I am calm and relaxed and when I come out, I'm re-energised. So I think that's my meditation...
