I have been trying my hardest to learn meditation and I was wonderng how can you tell if you are being Succesfull at it. I just seem to be having trouble with or maybe I just dont totally understand what it is. Can anyone help me with this?
This is actually Very helpful for me. Thank you very much for this. :)
I'm glad to be of some help, Zach. I hope you'll continue to let us know how it goes.
One thing that has helped me in addition to Patricia's help is a book my best friend let me borrow from him. One thing that I know now i have been doing wrong is that I was trying to force myself to focus on something. According to this book the more you try to force you mind the more it wonders and it is true I have found that by relaxng my mind I have found that I am not as Aggrevaited when I get up. but I will also take what you have told me here in to consideration I have never heard of Tai Chi before I am going to have to do some research on it. do you have any good web sites I can look at?
Thai Chi is easy to learn as there are a few basic steps that are learnt and breathing technique but once you have them down they can be adapted. If you Try google "Everyday Thai Chi" or "Thai Chi Chuan" you sould find a short video on the websites. Unfortunately I cant remember the sites as it was a while back. There are groups which one can join too which can be helpful as the instructer can correct you if you do something incorrectly. I started with a group and now do it on my own. Im sorry I could not be of much help but good luck.
There are many ways to meditate one way I do it is use incense to open my Chakras. The main thing is to relax your body and open your heart, focus on whatever it is you want to improve on. I meditate on school test, relationships, general stress. Try to find the right meditation for you there is even tarot card meditation when you don't know what to focus your energy on.
Hope that helps
