Meditation is something that we need to relax and heal our mind, body and soul. If you want to make the most out your life, try medication and see how it can help you. It is not simple. You need to practice meditation everyday but once you learn, you will feel better about yourself. Meditation only requires nothing but time; a very quiet time to rejuvenate our body and mind. It helps us get back to our real composure and control our thoughts. It tones our IQ, alertness and physical performance. Overall, meditation relieves stress and makes a person more productive and efficient.
Before doing any meditation, do the breathing meditation. Choose a quiet place to meditate and sit in a comfortable position. Close your eyes. Free yourself from any worries, stress, burden and pain. Clear your mind, heart and soul. This maybe hard at first but continuous meditation makes it possible. Imagine a peace, tranquility and solemnity. Now, breathe. Breathe naturally, preferably through the nostrils, without attempting to control the breath, and try to become aware of the sensation of the breath as it enters and leaves the nostrils. Below are some meditation techniques to help you in self-improvement.
Head Massage To start the head massage, free up your hair from any clips and ties. Just give it a free fall. Then massage the scalp with the hand palm. After that, place your fingers at the side of your eyes. Then have your eyes closed. Make small circles with your fingers around your temples. Motion some circles around your eyes. Put two fingers in between your nose and run them down separately. Resume doing the circles around your face.
Shoulder Massage- One of the benefits of a shoulder massage is that it reduces tension in the shoulder area. To start the massage, hold the upper middle portion of the shoulder and then move them slowly to the triangle-shaped muscle on the side of the neck. Gently squeeze it in motion with both hands moving in unison. Do it continuously until the end of the shoulder. Do this again but make the motion deeper.
Foot massage- Place your hands on the foot, thumbs on the sole pad. Stroke it with the thumb firmly but not too hard that it hurts. Travel up and down the foot. Fingertips go from the base of the toes to the front of the ankle and back, while the thumbs go from sole pad to the heel arch and back. Then move thumbs in circular motion on the sole pad; then on the heel. For the toes, simply use the palms of both hands to give them a light rub, and then gently pinch each toe between your index finger and thumb and pull up with a gliding motion. Finish the massage by working on the sides of the ankle. With one hand on each side, use your fingertips to work small circles around the outside of the bony area.
