Below we have outlined ways you can use meditation to pull through any situation. Study the guide below and practice it when you need some form of healing
Meditation for Battling with Stress
When you need meditation to deal with stress, simply remember the acronym STOP.
- Stop whatever it is you are doing
- Take a deep breath and pause to clear your mind and concentrate
- Open your mind and body and notice what is going on within you and in your outside environment. Watch out for impulses that push you to want to act quickly. The aim is to pause and respond mindfully.
- Proceed with your decision or choice of action that you have come up with by performing the STOP exercise.
Meditation when you need Wisdom
When in difficulty and need quick bursts of knowledge you need to let deal with anxiety, heartbreak, grief, doubt or fear let yourself free and allow wisdom RAIN down on you. When you need to make a decision that will help you overcome your present situation simply
- Recognize your present situation and name it. It could be fear, confusion, stress or anger.
- Allow time to deal with the present emotion. It is unwise to try and push it away or block it.
- Inspect the thoughts and feelings as they are taking place in your mind and body. Notice how they affect your thoughts and how you feel.
- Nurture the emotions and feelings. They are like a weather pattern and would not last for long. Flow with it as you gradually get it out of your body and fill your mind with positive energy that will help you be in control
Meditation for Energy and Perspective
This is vital when you need to be mindful at all time. Our minds are constantly engaged and it is easy to lose control. This form of meditation helps us to be in control of the things we say, the way we think and helps us become better listeners
- When Listening: when we are been spoken to we tend to concentrate on the person we are listening to and this makes it easy for us to become distracted by their appearance or something they have said and wander away completely from the room. The solution is to try and keep our attention on our body which helps us remain conscious of the need to always be in the room and focus on what is been said.
- When speaking: take control of what you say by being mindful of yourself. When we chat it is easy for us to drift away and talk mindlessly away from our mind. We begin to say things without even thinking. You can easily be in control of what you say by focusing on yourself. Take control of your breathing, footstep, your posture and the way you move your hands when trying to make a point. By so doing you take charge of your speech and using only words that you have unconsciously thought about before saying them.
