Easy Meditation

Years ago such a concept as easy meditation simply didn't exist in our society. This is because those who embraced it, they fully embraced it, practically living by it and it's principles. Also many years ago, before getting introduced to the Western world, the people who were meditating were monks, spiritual leaders, spiritual people and those who really took life seriously in finding a true meaning of existence. 

Don't get me wrong, this doesn't mean that we, Westerners do not take life seriously. However let's not forget that our modern world is all based on impulse, on getting everything NOW and on very materialistic principles.

This is because we are living in stressful times, busy times, when we simply don't have the luxury of spending hours and hours on learning meditation to attain all the benefits it can give us. Hence the search for easy meditation techniques that can be beneficial in our daily lives right away.

While spirituality and religion have their places in this society, as a whole we are only now starting to unlearn what the industrial revolution did to our mind and spirit over the years.

Unfortunately it is very difficult to let go of 'wanting it now and wanting it as easy as possible', hence the increasing demand for easy meditation techniques.

What Are Easy Meditation Techniques?

Easy, or simple meditation techniques are those that can be done in a relative short period of time without taking years to get benefits from practicing them.
Also the benefits that you will get from easy meditation techniques will be slightly different than those that you would get if you were a devote practitioner meditator.
For example you might not get all the spiritual advantages, however you will get 'things' you can achieve faster. You will find everything you need to live a relatively stress-free life, to find calm and peace in your life and become a better person overall.

Benefits Of Practicing Easy Meditation

  • Stress reduction and management - These meditations are not too deep, just enough to help you managing stress easily
  • Health benefits - You will improve your health overall. Depending on the type of practice you will use, you can help yourself to overcome headaches and migraines, let go of various phobias and addictions, as well as be more rested due to lower metabolic and heart rate.
  • Also in the category of health benefits you will have lower cholesterol levels and decreased blood pressure.
  • Better mood overall - When it comes to mood, you will feel much calmer overall, less irritable and moody and less impulsive.
  • You will be able to enhance your creativity and imagination. You don't have to become a zen monk to spark your creativity. It is amazing what a few minutes of rest and relaxation can do to your mind!

Preparing For Meditation Made Easy

One of the differences between advanced and easy meditation techniques is that you don't have to do a lot of preparation for it.
The posture is simply about sitting quietly and calmly on a chair, on the floor or on a meditation pillow, depending on what you feel most comfortable with (or what you have around), and the rest is very easy.
You simply close your eyes for a couple of minutes, do a few breathing exercises or follow the guide in the guided meditation and after a few minutes you will feel fresh, relaxed, alert and ready to face the day (or evening) ahead.
And most of all, you will feel less stress than you had before you took up meditation in the first place.
And afterall, in our busy modern life, de-stressing is one of the major reasons why most people take up meditation. The ones that truly seek spiritual enlightenment in our circles are rather far and few in between.
