Introduction to Meditation-Spiritual Reality

As you probably know, Easterners have practiced meditation for thousands of years. For many, it’s a way of relieving stress and getting in touch with the God, cosmic or the universal mind, depending on what your beliefs are. Meditation clears the mind of problems, meaningless and nonconstructive thoughts.

When first starting to practice meditation, many find it helpful to use music to set the mood for relaxation and to provide a focus for their attention, thus reducing the mind’s relentless chatter.

You will find two types of recorded music for meditation, which are the guided and unguided. The guided meditation has music with a person verbally guiding you through the process of mediating, where the unguided is only music and soothing sounds.

As a beginner, you might find the guided method helpful with learning how to properly harmonize your body and mind for easy entry into the state of meditation. The meditative process requires your body to be completely relaxed, then the clearing of your mental thoughts. Some will find this requires a bit of practice, while others will find it easy. When you reach the point of being able to sit completely still for at least 10 to 15 minutes without any movement, and manage to be still without any thoughts running randomly in your mind, then you are on your way to a satisfying mediation.

Here is a video that is part 1 of a series of 11 videos. I wanted to share it with you because of the insightful information it offers regarding meditation. I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful.
