Some people report quitting smoking effortlessly after many years of unsuccessful attempts. I have been meditating for over 30 years and I could write a book about all the wonderful things that have happened as a results of taking 15 to 20 minutes a day to meditate.
An easy way to meditate
This simple 3 step process works. As with anything the more you practice the easier it gets.
- Find a comfortable place to sit with your back straight. Take a few long, slow deep breaths and focus your attention on relaxing and quieting your body.
- Allow your thoughts to fade into the background and keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Sometimes I imagine my thoughts written on the surface of some water and run my hand through them, watching them blur and then disappear.
- Imagine opening a doorway that leads directly into your heart or spirit,open it, walk in and allow yourself to bask in it.
