Meditations For Beginners: Best Ways To Start Your Practice

Published

on

Meditation for beginners tips image

I’ve met many people with a desire to start a meditative practice but were confused with where to start. For many of them, starting a meditation practice seems very complicated and difficult. So are there any meditations for beginners to start with? Yes, there are plenty of them. And in this article, I will share with you the easiest ways to start your meditative practice and make it your daily ritual!

Meditation is not as complicated as it may seem

There is nothing complicated about meditation, everyone is capable of it. Moreover, every one of you has repeatedly been in a meditative state, even if you didn’t realize it. Remember how many times while you were flying on the plane you were looking out the window, watching the movement of feathery clouds. Do you remember your last vacation? You were walking along a deserted beach, filled with the rays of the sunset sun, feeling the warmth of the sand, pleasantly warming your bare feet, and looking at the shells in the surf. I’m sure you can remember a lot of similar situations where you were completely present, without thoughts of serious problems,  analyzing your emotional state, or thinking about anyone or anything. At these moments, there was no past or future for you — there was only “here” and “now”, and you were completely dissolved in the current moment. This present moment, in fact, is the meditation.

Meditation benefits

Before I start talking about meditations for beginners I want to introduce you to the benefits of regular meditations.

It makes you feel better

Once you start meditating regularly, suddenly you feel much better and your fatigue will recede. Regular meditations relieve stress, add strength and energy.

It helps to relieve tension

Today, almost every psychologist will advise you of a few simple meditative exercises to relieve tension. This is understandable even at the physiological level: breathing becomes deeper, heart rate slows down, blood pressure decreases. We need this kind of relaxing techniques because, by the age of thirty, even the most successful and happy of us have accumulated so many fears and commitments that we can even physically feel it.

It helps to understand yourself better

While meditating, you are at the same time completely relaxed and very focused — a dual, contradictory state, but only at first glance. As a result, problems that were previously considered unsolvable seem not as fundamental as you thought. Meditation gives you the opportunity, time and strength to try to understand yourself. The question “what do I want?” it seems to be very simple. But for many, it takes a lifetime to find this answer. And meditation helps in this. Thanks to it, we can better understand ourselves and realize our place in the world.

It makes you look younger

Meditation rejuvenates and often makes it better and faster than any cosmetic procedures. For example, you can try this simple practice. Every morning sit on the floor for a half hour and imagine a ball of energy located below your navel.  This energy is your sacral chakra which is a very important energy point. Believe me, when you come to the office, you will be surprised by the number of compliments and kind words addressed to you.

Meditations for beginners have a variety of choices

Meditation has nothing to do with voodoo and conjuring spirits. These are real spiritual exercises that help you live more fully. By practicing meditations you spend a quality amount of time in total privacy, learning to combine relaxation with maximum concentration. And this state can be achieved in a variety of ways.

If you decide to master meditation, try starting with the following meditations for beginners. Once you start practicing, you will immediately feel that it is simple, and there is nothing supernatural about it.

Choose any of the techniques and practice one to two weeks before moving on to the next. Do not rush to conclusions, continue to study even if there are negative feelings and it seems that something does not work and this option does not suit you. Then try a different technique. As a result, you will choose the most appropriate method and will practice meditation with pleasure.

Conscious breathing

One of the main technique of meditations for beginners is conscious breathing. Just keep an eye on how the air enters and leaves through the lungs. Observe the duration of each breath and exhalation. And don’t be afraid if your attention suddenly jumps to something else, just bring it back. If you still get distracted, you can count the breaths: one — inhale, two — exhale. Any extraneous thought arising in the mind put aside until better times. Try not to control your breathing, just watch your feelings.

Mantra Chanting

Another effective way to achieve maximum concentration is used in many religions, although it has different names. Mantras can consist of a single syllable, word or phrase. Christians often repeat the prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner”. The praying Jews repeat the “Shema” (“Hear”). The most common mantras are “Om” and “Om Mani Padme hum”. If this option does not suit you, just use any affirmation you like and see what happens. You can chant mantra out loud synchronizing it with the breath.

Visualization

First, carefully consider a simple geometric shape, such as a circle or triangle. Then close your eyes and try mentally to imagine it. Once you master it, you can try to do the same with mandalas and yantras. You can use other images that resonate with you.

Metta Bhavana

Osho quotes on meditation image

It’s important to remember that meditation is not only developing concentration but also generating a comprehensive love for all living beings. “Metta” (is translated from the ancient Indian language Pali) means “love”, and “bhavana” is translated as “development, education”. Metta Bhavana meditation was taught by Buddha. It is reflected in the Theravada, the oldest school of Buddhism.

Mettabhavana involves nurturing the love first to yourself, then to friends, then to strangers, then to enemies and eventually to all beings in the world. To succeed in this practice, first focus on your breathing. Then open your heart to the world and repeat to yourself, “let me be happy, let me be calm, let me be free from suffering.” After spending some time with yourself, mentally imagine a person close to you and turn your love to him with the words: “May you be happy, may you be calm, may you be free from suffering” and so on. Then go to other people, then – to those who you find difficult to communicate with and those who caused you pain. And in the end, wish good to all living beings.

Vipassana

meditations for beginners image

Vipassana meditation encourages you to pay attention to sensations, but not thoughts or emotions. Find a comfortable place to sit for 45-60 minutes. To do this, it is important to keep your back straight. Your eyes must be closed and body completely still. Use what is most comfortable for you: low bench, pillows, chair. No special breathing techniques are required, just natural breath. Watch your every breath and exhalation.

Focus on the area where the sensations are most vivid — in the nose, diaphragm or in the solar plexus. But don’t close yourself to the world. When you hear some sounds, feel a new smell or a breath of wind, do not be afraid to pay attention to them. Do not emotionally react to the thoughts that at first certainly will swarm in your head. To all that worries you, treat as clouds floating in the sky — you do not get attached to them and do not reject them.

Meditation according to Vedanta

This meditation requires observation of the mind, which is engaged in self-study. This practice helps to feel like a part of the universe. In other words, during this meditation your “I” becomes part of the Universe. As soon as there is any thought such as “I’m bored” or “I have many urgent tasks”, you have to ask yourself the question: “Who perceives this thought? For whom it arises?” The answer seems obvious:”to me.” And then ask yourself the following question: “who am I? Where and what are my origins?” As a result of this chain of questions and answers, you will come to liberation from your own ego and communion with the world.

Meditation in movement

This kind of meditation manifests itself in the most various forms. You can practice while practicing Hatha yoga, Tai Chi, walking, etc. Meditating while you walk, you do the breaths in time with the steps. On the inhale you gradually tear off one foot from the floor, starting with the heel and ending with the toes, and rearrange it forward. Then, with exhalation, lower the foot on the floor, carry the weight on it and prepare to lift the other foot on the next breath. Note, this is not just an additional exercise when walking, because you use the movement to achieve greater concentration and greater self-awareness.

Bottom Line

Meditation is available for everyone. Remember this, because you will certainly at some point think that nothing happens and, apparently, it is not for you. When you meditate, the thought process gradually slows down, everything inside you should become more measured and calmer. But the mind resists peace — in response to the unusual coercion a thought begins to run around in the head with even greater speed. As soon as you realize that this restlessness is a normal state and that at first, this happens to all, it will immediately become much easier. Start with 5-10 – minute daily exercises, gradually moving on to a longer practice.

If you start practicing these meditations for beginners regularly, you will eventually stop wasting time and energy on the little things and over-react on things that don’t change. You will no longer take offense at life, but instead, begin to accept what is happening as it is. You will approach harmony with the world. And it’s not just about getting rid of stress and getting more energy. The more you improve in meditation, the bigger changes you will discover in your desires and aspirations. You will know yourself. Aren’t we the most interesting book in our personal library?

Feng Shui Astrology For December 2022: What to Expect This Month?

Published

on

Feng Shui Astrology for August Image

Feng Shui astrology is based on the Chinese calendar. The dates of the beginning and the end of the months are different from those generally accepted in the Gregorian calendar. According to the Chinese calendar, the year’s eleventh month starts on December 7th and ends on January 5th. Therefore, all the recommendations given in this article will be accurate until January 5th.

Feng Shui astrology believes that each month has its unique energy and character. Therefore, each month’s energy is expressed through one of the 12 Zodiac animals and connected to one of the five elements.

December 2022 is the month of the Water Rat. In this article, I will share what kind of energy and events to expect in December 2022 and how to choose dates for different events properly.

Feng Shui Astrology for December 2022

The Energy of the Month of the Water Rat

According to the Chinese calendar, December 2022 is ruled by the Water Rat.

In Chinese mythology, the Water Rat is an image of frozen water, like an iceberg or a very deep dark pond. The Water Rat has a cold and unpredictable mysterious energy. Behind the external emotional calmness, unpredictable things can suddenly happen internally. In December, many people may feel emotional and pessimistic. Deep fears and panic may also arise in society.

On a global scale, there may still be a coldness, and the economic downturn may continue. There may be a lack of energy, an unwillingness to act, and a desire to isolate yourself from others and stay in your own “shell”.

This month, it will be more difficult for people to express their opinions, will, and positions. There is also an indication of possible frequent sharp changes and increased instability.

This month, it is highly recommended to engage in activities that bring you inspiration and festive spirit. Decorate your Christmas tree, create a holiday spirit with festive decorations, make home-cooked meals, invite friends and family over, and focus on the positive thoughts that bring you joy and inspiration.

In December 2022, it is recommended to avoid traveling in the South direction. This recommendation only applies to long-distance trips. It is ok to take a walk or move around the city or close to it in the South direction.

Auspicious Days In December 2022

December 17th and 29th are good dates for starting long-term affairs. Any project started on these dates will not promise rapid development, but it will bring stable, reliable results. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Dog.

November 14th and 26th are good dates for signing financial agreements. However, these dates are unsuitable for those born in the year of the Monkey.

Inauspicious Days In December 2022

December 7th, 9th, 19th, 21st, 31st, and January 2nd are unfavorable dates to start anything important. These dates bring difficulties, obstacles, and problems.

December 12th and 24th are not suitable dates for a lot of activity, organizing important events, or starting medical treatment. But you can use these dates to complete ongoing projects.

December 9th and 11th are “No Wealth Days“. These dates are not suitable for starting a business, making investments, or signing financial agreements.

Feng Shui Christmas Tree Placement in 2022 + Decoration Tips

Feng Shui Christmas Tree Placement in 2022 Image

The holiday season has officially arrived, so it’s time to decorate your Christmas tree! In this article, I will share with you important tips on Feng Shui Christmas tree placement for 2022.

What’s so special about the Christmas Tree placement? Why do we need to use Feng Shui Christmas tree placement rules in this simple action we’ve done so many times before? The thing is that a Christmas tree with bright decorations, garlands, and lights is a powerful source of Yang energy. When we place a Christmas tree in a certain sector of the house, we activate the energy of this sector.

Also, when we put gifts under the tree, we symbolically manifest abundance, pleasant surprises, and love-giving. When the whole family gathers next to the tree on Christmas morning, we all feel loved, cared for, and joyful. These positive emotions activate the energy of the sector where a Christmas tree is located.

From an astrological point of view, each sector can be a source of positive or negative energy. And if a Christmas tree gets into a sector with negative energy, this energy gets activated and attracts all kinds of problems into your life. If the tree gets into a sector with positive energy, it gives the opposite effect – you attract luck, abundance, and well-being. All these astrological subtleties are calculated by Feng Shui masters.

Everything is important in Feng Shui Christmas tree placement: where the Christmas tree will be placed, how active the room will be where you place it, what color you choose for its decoration, and what date and time you choose to install the Christmas tree. In short, each seemingly insignificant detail can have a huge impact on the energy of the house.

In this article, I will not delve into the complex Feng Shui formulas but instead, I will give you practical tips on how to activate the positive energy of your home and avoid the activation of negative energy.

Why Is It So Important Where the Christmas Lights Are?

In terms of Feng Shui, there are two kinds of energy — Yin and Yang. Yang energy is active and live. If the Yang energy fills the favorable sector of your home, it activates the flow of positive energy and attracts good luck to you. For example, you can suddenly get a bonus, your salary can be raised, you may come up with a new great idea, etc.

However, if the Yang energy gets into the unfavorable sector, it activates all kinds of failures in your life – you can lose money, health, happiness, and peace, and you can attract misunderstandings and conflicts with loved ones, etc.

Following Feng Shui Christmas tree rules, will help you to attract good luck and improve your life.

Feng Shui Christmas Tree Placement in 2022

Energy changes every year. Therefore, the following recommendations were created by considering the energies of December 2022.

In order to determine which sector to put the Christmas tree in, you need to have a Bagua map of your house. If you don’t have a Bagua map or know what it is, read my article “The Feng Shui Bagua Map”.

So, here are the main recommendations for Feng Shui Christmas tree placement in 2022!

Which Sector to Choose According to the Feng Shui Christmas Tree Placement Rules In 2022?

Southeast sector of your house or the Southeast corner of your living room

This is one of the best places for a Christmas tree this year! If it’s possible, make sure to use this amazing opportunity to activate your good luck! By placing a Christmas tree here, you are activating the energy of success, business luck, prosperity, and good fortune. Every time you turn on Christmas lights here, you attract good fortune into your house.

To activate this auspicious energy, you need to decorate your Christmas tree with Christmas lights and green and red Christmas ornaments.

Don’t forget to say your intention to activate your good fortune and abundance before you start decorating your Christmas tree. You can even repeat abundance affirmations while decorating the tree.

East sector of your house or the East part of your living room

Red Christmas decorations image

This is another great place to install your Christmas tree!

This is another good place for your Christmas tree. The Christmas tree in this sector will activate mentors and networking luck, creativity, and new ideas.

Decorate your Christmas tree in the North sector with white, gold, or silver ornaments.

Southwest sector of your house or Southwest corner of your living room

blue christmas balls image

This sector brings contradictory energies this month. On one side, it brings wealth and windfall luck, but on another – a risk of betrayals and financial loss. The water element (blue color) will help you to protect yourself from negative energies and attract the positive. Therefore, it’s best to use blue decorations in the Southwest sector and decorate your Christmas tree with blue ornaments. However, do not use the Christmas lights in this sector this year!! The lights represent the Fire element, and when displayed in the Southwest sector in December 2022, it may activate undesired events in your life.

West sector of your house or West corner of your living room

Feng Shui Christmas tree 2021 Image

This is not the best place for your Christmas tree this year. If possible find another spot for your tree. However, you can still do it if you have no other options. In this case, make sure to decorate it with blue ornaments.

Northwest sector of your house or Northwest part of your living room

white christmas tree image

This is not a good place for the Christmas tree this year. By activating this sector with the Christmas tree, you may attract illness to the house residents, especially males. Try to avoid placing the Christmas tree here this year. If you have no other options, then decorate the tree with white, silver, gold, or blue ornaments and avoid Christmas lights or candles in this sector.

South and Center

Do not place your Christmas tree in the South and central sectors of your house and in the South corner and central part of your living room! These two sectors are very dangerous in December 2022! Avoid lighting Christmas lights, candles, or fireplaces here. By activating these sectors, you may attract all kinds of misfortune, severe health problems, losses, and dangerous events into your life.

When to set up your Christmas Tree?

The date and time you decided to install your Christmas tree also play a big role. Here are favorable dates in December 2022 when you can do it:

December 1st: 1-3 am (GMT). However, those born in the year of the Horse shouldn’t decorate the Christmas tree on this date

December 8th: 9-11 pm (GMT). However, those born in the year of the Ox shouldn’t decorate the Christmas tree on this date

December 9th: 1-3 pm (GMT). However, those born in the year of the Tiger shouldn’t decorate the Christmas tree on this date

4 Signs You Have Financial Anxiety & How to Overcome It

Published

on

financial anxiety image

According to the Mind over Money survey by Capital One and The Decision Lab, 77% of Americans feel anxious about their financial situation. Thinking or worrying about money is different from financial anxiety. Financial anxiety is the obsessive fear of financial roadblocks inhibiting day-to-day activities and financial planning. It impedes our judgments and matters involving money.

Recent research shows that anxiety is people’s most common emotion toward money. If you are anxious about money, you will have issues making intelligent financial decisions. Unfortunately, financial literacy is one of the most overlooked lessons. For this reason, when financial anxiety hits, many people do not know it, and worse, they do not know how to deal with it. 

4 Signs You Have Financial Anxiety

Signs of financial anxiety can come off as an identifiable day-to-day behavior. However, sometimes, you may not even realize you are facing it. Watch out for the following signs:

#1: Overspending

This may sound ironic, but it is one of the most common signs of financial anxiety. You may think that since you are always worried about money, you will spend less and less on it. However, with financial anxiety, you end up going overboard on shopping sprees to get temporary comfort when you put your hands on money. This goes hand in hand with hoarding. You may be financially anxious if your comfort only comes through material items.

#2: Fear of spending

If you are frugal beyond reason, you are most likely battling financial anxiety. You might be obsessed with saving every penny and would rather stay in uncomfortable conditions rather than spend money to buy necessary convenience.

#3: Uncomfortable around finances

People with financial anxiety have difficulty around matters involving finance and financial literacy. If you get uneasy about opening up in finances, creating a budget, or just curating a retirement plan, it’s a massive sign of financial anxiety.

#4: Obsessive behavior

If you are obsessed with money, such as constantly checking your bank account balances, planning for the money you don’t have yet, and even accounting for money to the last penny, it could be a severe sign of financial anxiety.

What Causes Financial Anxiety?

There is a common belief that a lack of money causes financial anxiety. It is one of the causes, but it has more to it than being just broke. Many wealthy people also experience financial anxiety.

 Here are some triggers of financial anxiety:

  • Lack of financial education and literacy;
  • Your childhood experiences and relationship with money;
  • Weak job security;
  • Previous money mistakes that messed you up big time;
  • Fear and uncertainty of what the future holds;
  • The increased cost of living.

How to Overcome Financial Anxiety?

It is not enough to identify signs of your financial anxiety. Financial anxiety clouds your mind resulting in poorer financial decisions. Use the following tips to overcome financial anxiety.

#1: Make a budget plan

Budget planning is the most effective strategy for reducing money-related stress. It will help you plan where your money will go each month. Also, it will help you ensure that you don’t accidentally spend too much; you can set a firm limit to stay under while you shop.

#2: Get money literacy classes

This is one of the most popular ways to get over financial anxiety; getting financial lessons. Such classes can help you deal with signs and causes of anxiety.

You want to get a class that will help you understand the following:

  • The importance of emergency funds;
  • How to save without being excessively frugal;
  • How to attract abundance in your life, as most money issues come when there is a lack of it;
  • How to manage debts.

#3: Create an emergency fund

Having an emergency fund can significantly reduce your stress and anxiety about money. It will also give you a sense of security because you know you have enough money set aside to pay your bills if you have some unexpected expenses, emergencies, or lose your job.

#4: Use Feng Shui to overcome financial crisis

Bad Feng Shui Image

You can modify the space you live in from a trap to a haven that lets you prosper. Yes, you read that right; Feng Shui is about advancing your space and its energy to attract prosperity and happiness. Moreover, it will help you to reduce financial anxiety and feel more comfortable and secure in your own home.

Here are some Feng Shui tips that can make your space and home an oasis of prosperity:

  • Decluttering: clutter in the house accumulates a lot of procrastination energy. Besides, the clutter all over is bad for the vision and brings mental pessimism. Get rid of the clutter and let go of that stuck energy. As soon as you declutter your house, you will feel how your anxiety got reduced.
  • Activate your dining room the Feng Shui way: Your dining room is a haven for abundance in your house; it needs to be set the Feng Shui way. For starters, the dining table should be rectangular and not circular. Secondly, keep clocks out of the dining room. They may signify the end of prosperity. Have a mirror; mirrors reflect the food on the dining table, doubling the abundance. For more tips, check out our article Feng Shui for Kitchen and Dining Room.
  • Radiate abundance from your fridge: You can use your fridge to show the universe that you are ready to receive abundance. First, always throw away any stale food. Secondly, always have an unopened bottle of champagne ready for the celebration. Thirdly, always fill your fridge with fresh and healthy foods, not junk.
  • Invite the Dragon into your space: The Dragon symbolizes success, fortune, and achievements in the Chinese Pantheon. This is the way Chinese businesses always have this totem on their logo. Have a painting of the dragon in your house to invite long-lasting success.
  • Put the three-legged toad around your front door: the three-legged toad signifies money-making in the Feng shui principles. It attracts success in money making. This symbol also ensures you receive money on time from your different ventures.

#5: Use powerful essential oils to attract money into your life

Essential oils have been used for a long time to attract money. In ancient times, merchants used essential oils to sell their merchandise faster and even attract better-paying clients. Essential oils are also suitable for retaining clients.

 Here are how some essential oils you can use to attract money and success:

  • Cinnamon: this is known to attract good luck and prosperity. It also helps you understand people like your clients better. You can use it around your office. Be sure to put a few drops in your wallet too.
  • Peppermint: this is good for increasing revenue and opening your mind and body to new talent and abilities. Financial anxiety happens to people from all walks of life, but people with insufficient revenue are more susceptible. Just remember to use peppermint only after bedtime.
  • Patchouli: put this oil in your oil diffuser to boost your creativity and attract money.
  • Basil: this is the essential oil to use to attract business success and job promotion. Put a few drops of basil in your wallet or anywhere you put your money.

Other essential oils you can use to attract prosperity include:

  • Vanilla;
  • Jasmine;
  • Cassia;
  • Ylang Ylang;
  • Cypress tree;
  • Lavender;
  • Mandarin;
  • Oregano;
  • Neroli.

#6: Practice affirmations that attract abundance

What you say and think has a significant impact on your life. You can manifest your way into your desired life.

Here are some abundance affirmations you can practice:

  • I am receiving the blessings of abundance and prosperity into my life!

#7: Practice mindfulness

Be mindful of what you feel and how you react to things associated with your finances. Listen to your body. Does your mind start racing? Does your heart rate spike? Does your breath shorten? Do you start perspiring? Now, consciously deepen your breath and try to exhale all the stress and worries. Remind yourself that there are things you cannot control, but the Universe always takes care of you. Whatever happens with you financially, there is a karmic lesson to learn and move forward. Everything always works out. And this time, it will also work out. Release tension from your body and try to relax all your muscles. Make mediation your daily practice.
