Simple Meditation Techniques You Can Use at Home

Meditation need not be scientific, there are simple meditation techniques available for anyone to practice.
Vast amounts of experience is also not necessary to perform some of the simple meditation techniques.
Take note, though, that 'simple' may be relative to the person that is applying the technique.
What may come easily to you, may be found more difficult by others.
Explore as many simple meditation techniques as you can in order to establish which ones work well for you.
The first technique that I would like to explain is called Dynamic Meditation.
If the four stages in this simple meditation technique is followed correctly, you will have mastered a very effective meditative technique.
Contrary to some beliefs, not all meditative processes involve only quiet, peaceful contemplation.
As this technique demonstrates, some forms of meditation require a more loud and energetic approach! Each of the four phases in Dynamic Meditation last for ten minutes and require a different activity.
In stage one, you will prepare you body to move freely.
Breath deep and fast through your nose and move physically in any way that will increase the supply of oxygen to your lungs.
For the next stage you will completely let yourself go.
Dance spontaneously or even roll on the ground.
Release any anger and suppressed emotions in any way you can, provided it is done safely.
Screaming is recommended! The third stage is quite ridiculous but has been found necessary to push your centers of stored energy upwards.
Here you will jump up and down and simultaneously yell Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Do not stiffen your arms or hold them above your head, let them hang loosely in a natural position.
Finally relax and become quiet.
Lie comfortably on your back and enjoy the energy that you have just released.
Totally surrender to your surroundings and let yourself go.
As another easy meditation technique, I would like to briefly describe a mantra.
Mantras can be quite commonly used in meditative practices and is simply repetition of a word or sentence that has a phonetic significance.
Mantra is sound.
Our universe is filled with sounds and everything in it has sound.
The wind that blows, trees that rustle and the flow of water - these are all a mantra.
An ancient Indian belief is that at the beginning there was a sound that was Om and from this sound existence of life and everything else was possible.
Repetition of chosen words in our meditation will enable us to focus and concentrate more clearly on the objective of the meditative session.
Reverberating sounds help to bring peace and tranquility to our minds so that truth and 'oneness' with the universe may be experienced.
