Do you want to do meditation?
Have you read and seen what guided meditation is and how it works? Yet you are not sure if you will be able to meditate yourself.
I had the same issues when I started out with meditation. I was not sure where to start and what to do.
Guided Meditation offers remarkable benefits.
From becoming more in tune with your own thoughts to improving your overall well-being, meditation has something to offer everyone.
If you are a complete beginner, you may be wondering how to get started. Learning to meditate isn’t as complex as you might think.
I know when I started I used to get so frustrated when my mind wandered off in different directions all the time.
If you want to experience the positives that the practice can bring, then here is a beginner guided meditation for you.
For successful meditation, you will require a quiet environment in which to practice. Background noise, such as the television and radio, will cause distraction and disrupt your train of thought.
It’s also best to choose a fairly cool to a warm area to meditate. Being too cold or too hot won’t allow you to concentrate, so make sure you’re in a suitable area where you won’t be disturbed.
To meditate, you’ll need to find a comfortable position in which to sit for ten to fifteen minutes. You don’t need to adopt a specific position if you are going to find it hard to adapt.
Generally, the regular position for meditation is with crossed legs and hands on your lap. However, if you struggle with this at first, find a position you are comfortable with. Just ensure that you are not slouching.
Focusing on your breathing is an important process in meditation. However, you want it to be natural. Start by closing your eyes and take a few deep breaths.
Let it begin with shallow breaths, and just continue to breathe for a few minutes. Your intake of breath will become deeper as you progress.Take your time to breathe slowly as there is no need to force it.
Focus on your Thoughts.
By deep breathing, you should feel more at ease. Once that happens, turn your focus to the actual process of breathing.
Be conscious of each breath that you inhale and each that you exhale. It may take a while for your mind to fully focus on your breathing.
Don’t worry if you struggle with your train of thought. It’s perfectly ok for your mind to wander onto other subjects. Simply let it drift and gently try to bring your attention back to your breathing.
It is difficult to concentrate, whether you’re a beginner to meditation or not, however, as you start to continually practice, your attention should gradually improve. If you find it easier, then use numbers to ‘count’ your breathing.
So, for instance, count one to inhale and two to exhale, and continue to repeat these numbers as you breathe in and out.
This can be an effective way to get into the mindset of learning to meditate.
Open your eyes.
When you are ready to end your meditation, open your eyes.
You should be in a calm and serene state.

My thoughts on Meditation.
Whether I want to know it or not. I am the creator of my own reality. Why?
Because I am the chooser of my thoughts right now. The only way I can change this if I am not on the right path I want to be.
It is easy.
Start by using a guided meditation that will assist my brain on autopilot. I think the biggest decision is to start doing it.
The next obstacle is to keep on doing it. You have to make a choice and stick with it.
We don’t all think in the same way. Hence the reason that your meditation might work quicker or take longer than mine did.
The one thing you can do is promise yourself you will try it.
And by trying it I mean….keep on trying. It will not work if you did it once and decide this is not working for you.
What worked for me might not work for you on the first day.
But remember one thing… eventually, it will work!
A few years ago I went to an online seminar that Bob Proctor aired.
This was an eye-opening experience for me. Try it below.
Remember this when you consider to meditate:
Your subconscious beliefs are the person you are right now.
It doesn't know what is real or fake so trick your subconscious and think happy results.
(on autopilot. )
Listen to this free guided meditation from Bob Proctor and see how this will soon change your thoughts.
