Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

2. A deep sense of relaxation
3.Better problem solving
4. Aid in regulating blood pressure
5. Improved circulation, respiration and digestion.


  • Sitting or laying in a relaxed position
  • Breathing regularly. You breathe in deep enough to get enough oxygen. When you breathe out, you relax your muscles so that your lungs are well emptied, but without straining
  • Stopping thoughts of everyday problems and matters
  • Concentrating your thoughts upon some sound, word you repeat, image, abstract concept, or feeling. All your attention should be pointed upon this one point.Meditation techniques can differ according to the degree of concentration, and how foreign thoughts are handled. By some techniques, the objective is to concentrate so intensely that no foreign thoughts occur at all.In other techniques, the concentration is more relaxed so that foreign thoughts easily pop up. When these foreign thoughts are discovergs you have forgotten or suppressed.  Mediation can allow you to rediscover hidden memory material.


  • Sit in a good chair in a comfortable position
  • Relax all your muscles as well as you can
  • Stop thinking about anything, or at least try not to think about anything
  • Breath out, relaxing all the muscles in your breathing apparatus
  • Repeat the following in 10 – 20 minutes:
    1. Breath in so deep that you feel you get enough oxygen
    2. Breath out, relaxing your chest and diaphragm completely
    3. Every time you breathe out, think the word “one” or another simple word inside yourself. You should think the word in a prolonged manner, and so that you hear it inside you, but you should try to avoid using your mouth or voice

If foreign thoughts come in, just stop these thoughts in a relaxed manner, and keep on concentrating upon the breathing and the word you repeat.

As you proceed through this meditation, you should feel steadily more relaxed in your mind and body. Feel that you breathe steadily more effectively; and that the blood circulation throughout your body gets more efficient. You may also feel an increasing mental pleasure throughout the meditation.
