Introduction: How to Meditate
Apparently a lot of people at Instructables want to learn how to meditate. So here it is. The meditation instructable.
Step 1: Background of Meditation
Definition-The Deep Concentration of the Mind
Meditation is thought to have originated in India over 4000 years ago. Buddha helped spread meditation throughout the east. From there it traveled across the world. Meditation is a powerful technique. With meditation you can think more clearly and creatively, "reboot" your brain, picture yourself scoring the winning goal thus building confidence, and practice conversations.
1-A quiet place to relax
2-Ability to get your body into a somewhat comfortable position
One and two aren't necessary but can help a beginner.
Step 2: Preparation
Before you meditate select a calm quiet area to help you think more clearly. This could be your room, a park, or the beach. Next get into a comfortable position. You don't have to do that thing with your legs if you don't want to. Instead lying in your bed or sitting a comfy chair would work as well.
Hint: If you are to busy to meditate during the day you can take 5-10 minutes lying in bed practicing before you try to go to sleep.
Step 3: The Process
Once you are all set up close your eyes. A good beginner exercise that helps you get more accompanied with unknowns is visualizing yourself throwing a tennis ball at brick wall. Try not think where the ball will be. Instead think about being there. This technique took me about 20 minutes to get perfect. After you have perfected the above try visualizing yourself jumping on a trampoline. While you are jumping visualize yourself turning and seeing multiple things happening on the ground while you soar through the sky. This will boost your sense of awareness. After you have mastered these techniques you can further your skill by pretending to have a conversation. When you do this try not to think of what the other person will say. Let your subconscious self do that. Now just use your imagination. If you get good enough you can enter a dreamlike state in which it feels like you are dreaming except you control the dream.
