Meditations For Beginners: Best Ways To Start Your Practice

Published

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?

Powerful Vajrasattva Mantra For Spiritual Evolution

Published

on

Vajrasattva mantra image

Vajrasattva mantra is one of the most effective and popular mantras in Tibet and India. It contains a perfect combination of sacred sounds, grouped in a hundred syllables. This mantra has a powerful effect on the subtle bodies and provokes giant changes on the physical plane.

In this article, I will share with you how to practice this powerful mantra properly so you can improve your life and take your spiritual development to the next level!

Vajrasattva In Buddhism And Hinduism

Vajrasattva is a cosmic Buddha, the embodiment of purity. This image in Buddhism symbolizes sincerity, sinlessness, and freshness.

Vajrasattva is depicted as a royal celestial Buddha, wearing a crown studded with jewels and with an aura of five colored lights – red, blue, white, green, and yellow – around his head This signifies the union of the five Dhyani Tathagatas, so Vajrasattva embodies all of their combined wisdom.

In his right hand, he holds a vajra (thunderbolt) – a symbol of steadfastness and compassion. With his left hand, Vajrasattva holds a silver bell – a symbol of spirituality and wisdom. The two symbols of Vajrasattva – the thunderbolt and the bell – are like the yin and yang of the enlightenment experience; the union of compassion and emptiness.

Vajrasattva Mantra Benefits

This mantra is also called “100-syllable mantra”. It has been known since ancient times. Vajrasattva mantra was used by Buddhist monks to cleanse their souls of sins, heal karma and move to a new level of perception. The power of this mantra is so great that it can even heal the karma from past incarnations.

Through the 100-syllable mantra practice you can achieve the following results:

  • get rid of chronic diseases;
  • alleviate the emotional suffering;
  • get rid of immoral thoughts;
  • calm down;
  • achieve enlightenment;
  • get rid of the mental blocks – anger, envy, jealousy;
  • understand your purpose and mission;
  • cleanse yourself from the black magic influence;
  • heal your karma;
  • reach clarity of your mind and memory;
  • increase in your intuition;
  • improve your health.

However, you can experience the benefits of this mantra only if you sincerely want to get rid of your own negativity, and if you are committed to the attainment of wisdom and enlightenment. Without a sincere, pure heart, spiritual evolution is impossible.

The Text of the 100-syllable Mantra

The following 100-syllable mantra should be recited 21 times:

om vajrasattva samaya manu palaya
vajrasattva denopa tita, dido may bhawa,
suto kayo may bhawa, supo kayo may bhawa
anu rakto may bhawa
sarva siddhi may prayatsa,
sarwa karma su tsa may
tsitam shriyam kuru hum,
ha ha ha ha ho
bhagawan – sarwa tatagata,
vajra ma may muntsa
vajra bhawa, maha samaya sattva
ah hum pey

When there is not enough time, you can chant a short version of this mantra:

Om Vajrasattva Hum

A short version should be recited 28 times.

The Meaning of Vajrasattva Mantra

Oṃ Vajrasattva! Preserve the bond!
As Vajrasattva stand before me.
Be firm for me.
Be greatly pleased for me.
Deeply nourish me.
Love me passionately.
Grant me siddhi in all things,
And in all actions make my mind most excellent.
Blessed One! Vajra of all the Tathāgatas! Do not abandon me.
Be the Vajra-bearer, Being of the Great Bond!

Note: This is not a literal translation of the individual Sanskrit words of the mantra.

How to Practice Vajrasattva Mantra?

You can listen to the recording of this mantra, sing it or chant it.

For making your mantra practice more effective and powerful, you need to take a cleansing shower or bath, light the sandalwood or lotus incense, and get into a meditative state. Incense will help your astral body to adjust to the perception of transcendental vibrations.

At the beginning of the practice, you can just listen to the words in the recording, then try to repeat aloud.

When learning the text of the mantra, chant it along with the record. Further, try to practice the mantra on your own, using rosary beads.

While chanting the mantra you need to visualize Vajrasattva.

Vajrasattva Visualisation

For practicing Vajrasattva visualization, you need to imagine Vajrasattva seated on an open white lotus on a Moon disk above his head. He is white, translucent, and adorned with beautiful ornaments and clothes.

His right hand holds a vajra which symbolizes great bliss. His left hand holds a bell which symbolizes the wisdom of emptiness. These two attributes signify his attainment of the unified state of enlightenment.

Imagine the seed-syllable HUM at Vajrasattva’s heart. Visualize how the letters of his 100-syllable mantra run clockwise around its edge.

The light radiates in all directions from the HUM syllable at Vajrasattva’s heart. This light is asking the Buddhas to bestow their blessings. They send white rays of light, which are absorbed into the HUM and the letters of the mantra at Vajrasattva’s heart. They fill his whole body, enhancing the magnificence of his appearance and the brilliance of his mantra.

Conclusion

Before you start practicing Vajrasattva mantra you have to commit to following the path of wisdom and purity. This mantra is a powerful tool to heal and purify your karma. From my personal experience, I can tell you that the first benefit I noticed from regular Vajrasattva mantra practice was receiving extra energy so I easily cut down a couple of hours of sleep. Then I felt the intuition increase and my health improved. So I can promise you that by practicing this mantra you will surely see the benefits. All you need is pure intention and discipline!

5 Dangerous Types Of Energy Vampires And How To Deal With Them

Published

on

Energy Vampires Attack Image

It’s not a secret that energy is the vital force of the body. That is why energy is priceless. When people communicate with each other, there is always an exchange of energy. If people communicate with each other on a voluntary basis, and their energy is in resonance, the energy exchange is balanced and reciprocal. After such communication, there are pleasant feelings and desire to communicate again. This is an example of normal and natural communication with no signs of energy vampires.

However, the modern reality is that the cases of energy vampirism are very common. And, almost every one of us has at least once come face to face with one of the many manifestations of energy vampirism. This happens because the energy of most people is weak leaving them feeling exhausted. Such people, due to lack of relevant knowledge or desire, are not able to independently maintain their energy at a normal level, so they “suck” energy (unknowingly) from other people.

You can meet energy vampires anywhere: at work, at the stores, at the parties, at home etc. After talking to an energy vampire, a person can feel fatigue, irritability, mood deterioration and a feeling of loss of vital energy. It is necessary to understand that if you constantly fall under the influence of energy vampirism, this entails the depletion of your energy field. When the energy field is weakened, you feel exhausted and easily get sick.

Therefore, energetic vampirism is the process of energy extraction by one person of another person, in which the first becomes saturated, and the second is weakened.

The Nature Of Energy Vampire and Energy Donor

An energy vampire is always energetically and spiritually more weak, than energy donor. Typically, only insecure and unstable people who are prone to scandals, gossips and envy become energy vampires. They are intuitively attracted to positive and energized people.

An energy donor is a person with great energy and spiritual potential. As a result, the energy donor is attractive to energy vampire and unwittingly gives his energy when communicating.

energy body image

The cause of energy vampirism is always lack of vital energy. When a person doesn’t have enough energy he (or she) becomes an energy vampire.

In other words, if the person continually causes irritation, and after talking with him, you feel weak and tired, most likely you’re dealing with an energy vampire!

Usually, a person who becomes an energy vampire has lots of blocks in his (or her) energy body. That’s why he (or she) becomes unable to freely access sustainable energy from Source. Therefore, he (or she) takes energy from another person, and usually feels some sort of pleasure or satisfaction that his (or her) donor feels bad and depleted because of the loss of energy.

For the most part, energy vampires are very obsessive, and often unhappy with themselves and their environment, selfish and annoying. Staying with them is very uncomfortable, and any conversation with them quickly becomes boring or even painful.

I’m telling you all this for making you understand that energy vampires are energetically weak people. Their access to their own internal power source is blocked. This suggests that they have a lot of blocks and insecurities. They absolutely do not resonate with the vibrations of the universe, because they violate its laws.

How To Recognize Energy Vampires?

Let’s take a look at the signs that reveal energy vampires.

First of all, the most important thing for energy vampires is to get you out of balance.

energy vampire provocation image

For example, he can pretend that he doesn’t understand something. At the same time, he will be bothering you with a lot of questions and errors, completely ignoring any explanation, and not recognizing any help. Through his actions, he wants you to lose your temper. As soon as you lose control over your emotions, there will be a release of energy, which will serve as “food” for the vampire.

Secondly, energy vampires often start long conversations “about nothing”.

conversation image

These conversations cannot be interrupted and you have to listen for hours about their complaints and stories about their life. If you feel that you are already tired of the conversation, but you can not interrupt it or change the subject, then most likely, your excessive talker is just trying to pump energy out of you.

Thirdly, energy vampires like to create situations when you are forced to wait for them, tormented in the expectations.

phone talk image

For example, you can simply invite such a person to a cafe or the movie theater, and he will not give you a clear answer whether he is going to make it or not. As a result, you start to get frustrated about the uncertainty, and the energy vampire gets his “food” in the form of your energy.

Fourthly, the energy vampire gets pleasure from retelling the details of disasters, tragedies, wars, deaths, and other negative events.

negative talk image

He relishes the details of the suffering of the victims in order to arouse in others fear, anxiety, and pain. Thus he brings them out of balance. People get emotional about negativity in the world and then become “food” for energy vampires.

Fifthly, energy vampires always seek direct contact.

abuse image

They like to touch other people, can even intentionally push somebody for getting their “food”.

There are different types of energy vampires

Generally, one vampire can distinguish several kinds.

1. “Upstart”

toxic person image

This type gives the impression of a kind person. But when someone starts a conversation about their problems, he immediately butts in the conversation and starts asking questions about the details, giving advice, and revealing the stories about other people’s suffering.

2. “Pessimist”

pessimist image

This person always has a very sad look. He often grumbles and is absolutely dissatisfied with his life. Even if such a person gets into a friendly company, he will always find something negative and will constantly be focusing on it. He likes to complain about his life and the imperfections of this world. You might think that such a person is just looking for moral support or advice, but in fact, he is not going to change anything in his life, he just needs your energy. And he gets it, drawing your attention to his problem.

3. “Aggressive vampire”

aggressive man image

This type loves to provoke conflicts and quarrels. He is rude and one might even say barbaric. He is very well aware of what causes people’s negative emotions and loves to push buttons.  This gives him great pleasure. Because negative emotions are his favorite “dish”.

4. “Selfish”

fight image

Such a person absolutely does not care about other people, he only cares about his own problems. As a rule, such a person considers himself an undervalued genius, who was surrounded by small and limited people who are not able to appreciate it. Usually, he is arrogant and likes to humiliate other people.

5. “Manipulator”

manipulator image

This is the most dangerous type, which acts very tricky. From the very beginning, he’s (she’s) trying to ingratiate himself (herself), make compliments (manipulating victim’s ego), gives expensive gifts. He (she) can spend weeks, months, and even years making a potential donor dependent on him (her). Besides that, he (she) tries to learn everything about the victim’s interests, passions, and weaknesses. He (she) is always very attentive to donor’s emotions and feelings.

But the danger is that as soon as the victim lets him (her) into his (her) life, he (she) immediately begins to humiliate, insult and hurt the victim. He (she) will always equally use “stick and carrot” in order not to lose the donor. He (she) will not leave the donor alone until he (she) has sucked all the energy out of the donor. When the donor is completely devastated, he (she) will switch to the next victim and will follow the same pattern.

When you’re facing this type of vampirism it is very important to control your ego. One of the first things this kind of vampire will use to manipulate you is your vanity.

How To Deal With Energy Vampires?

When you’re experiencing the vampiric attack as the donor you’re losing a large amount of vital energy, resulting in fatigue, apathy, and irritability.

Please pay attention to the main signs of vampiric attack:

  • headache;
  • dizziness;
  • heart palpitation;
  • pain in the heart;
  • difficulty breathing;
  • weakness;
  • fatigue;
  • drowsiness;
  • insomnia;
  • decreased appetite;
  • depression;
  • fear of loneliness;
  • apathy;
  • pessimism;
  • sorrow.

If after talking with a person, you have at least one of these symptoms, then most likely you fell under the effects of a vampiric attack.

So, how to protect yourself when you’re facing an energy vampire?

The first thing you need to remember – energy vampires can’t take your energy if you’re calm and balanced.

That’s why they try to cause negative emotions. Therefore, the most important thing is not to allow the vampire to provoke you and to remain calm. If in such a situation you can remain calm, you will not become the donor.

Second, when energy vampires talk about their problems, it is necessary to refrain from feeling pity.

As a rule, during these stories, he (she) stares into the eyes of a potential donor, not allowing to look away. He (she) also tries to touch the donor as often as possible, thus trying to extend the contact. In such cases, it’s best just to walk away from the vampire or come up with a reason to distract the conversation. If this is impossible, you can think about something more neutral – it will help to keep your emotions under control.

Third, try not to look into the vampire’s eyes.

This is how you can protect yourself from the vampire’s manipulations.

Fourth, when dealing with an energy vampire, cross your arms and legs.

Such a posture will help you avoid energy leakage.

Conclusion

My experience has shown that the best way to protect yourself from energy vampires is to treat them with good humor. Laughter is the emotion to which vampires are absolutely not ready for. Therefore, try to treat people who are trying to bring you into unbalanced emotional states with irony. What makes you laugh can’t be scary, right? Try to make fun of any rude remarks the vampire makes. Humor absolutely knocks the vampire out of balance, because it doesn’t resonate with him (her) at all. Stay calm and be positive!

Namaste!
