Hello everyone and welcome back to another weekly review of the online meditation program called Master Your Mind – Beginners Course by Live & Dare. As usual, I won’t keep you waiting. Let’s take a look at what this week have to offer.
It’s time for you to learn about mantra meditation and feel the tremendous power of resonance in your body. First of all, you will get help to pick your Mantra of choice. You could use a word in your native language or do as I did and go with a classic mantra like “OM”. After picking one, you then get guided through the new part by Giovanni to ensure that you got everything right. At this point you will be sitting for 8 minutes.
Calm your body.
Relaxation is one of the reasons I started pursuit meditation in my life. But it doesn’t just come by itself. I learned that if I tried to get into a meditative state when I was feeling stressed and not relaxed, it failed almost 100% of the times! So I have learned to prepare my mind for this. In this week Giovanni will also provide you with some simple steps that you easily can implement to make every meditation session much, much more pleasant and uplifting.
One of the most common statements I hear is, “I can’t meditate. My mind is too wild. I can’t seem to get the thoughts under control”. I even have a friend that said, “I don’t dare to meditate, my mind is too vivid. It scares me”. Oh, what I would give to have a super vivid mind!
Anyhow. Another part of this week is to help you to prevent your thoughts from becoming a distraction. The key here is to learn how not to let your attention focus on your thoughts, rather than just acknowledge that they are there, and going back to focusing on your mantra. You will also add another minute making the total practice 9 minutes.
I just feel bored.
Many people stop meditation because the fact that it is boring! Boredom have killed more opportunities than money have killed dreams. So the last thing week 3 will cover is how you deal with all the emotions that can surface during meditation. Boredom is just common to be the first one people experience so if you feel this, you are on the right path.
Here you will learn to simply label the emotion that makes it easier to accept. If you accept an emotion and acknowledge that it’s there, then you can investigate it. When you have investigated the emotion, you will be able to release it and let it go. If you also try to gladden your mind before meditation, you will even look forward to it even more. It’s a great way to get to the next step in your practice. Now you are ready to go for a full 10 minutes.
That was all for this week and this course still gives great value. Hope I helped you made up your mind if you are looking for a way to assist your personal growth! Click the banner below to read more about how to get started today.
