If you have been doing meditation for quite some time, you may start to consider going into deep meditation. Deep meditation offers many benefits to the individual. With deep meditation, you will feel more energised and you will start to reap the health benefits of the practice. You become empowered as you feel your inner strength become more prominent. As you go into deeper meditation, you develop a charisma that people cannot help but notice. You will feel that people treat you differently because of your aura.
Deep meditation is the next step for anyone getting into meditation. But before you start to understand this practice, you should first be sure that you have trained yourself in the proper ways of meditation.
Taking a Different Approach
A guided approach can help to make it easier for you to go a notch higher in your meditation exercises. But if you are thinking of getting into deep meditation, the best way to do it is by using the technique you are using now, but using it differently. In a way, you are using your existing technique as a basis for deep meditation.
Relaxation is Key
Deep meditation can also mean deep relaxation. This means realising your mind-body connection. Achieving this is akin to being hypnotised. That’s why one of the techniques to get into deep relaxation is with counting down. Slow down the breathing and count down from 1 to 10, 1 to 5 or 1 to 3. Take a deep breath, then as you let go, focus and visualise the number. While doing this, you will feel a deep sensation in your body.
Mind-body connection can also be influenced by what is happening around you outside of the actual meditation exercise. This is why it is important that you strike a balance in all aspects of your life. Otherwise, during meditation, you could experience a lot of mental chatter.
Mindfulness is another aspect that will help you get into deep meditation. Mindfulness means being in the current moment. This means releasing all the worries of tomorrow and the regrets of the past. In this practice, you become aware of your thoughts and feelings passing through, but you do not react to them.
In mindfulness, you do not get absorbed into the mental clutter. You view the mental noise as an observer. You acknowledge the thoughts, but move on to your focused meditation. Learning and mastering mindfulness will be essential as you get to the level of deep meditation.
