Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a simple technique for relaxation and expansion of consciousness. In this blog post you will learn how to practice it.

🧘‍♀️ Preparation for meditation

Before you begin Transcendental Meditation, you should find a quiet place where you will be undisturbed. This can be a room in your home, a garden, or even a quiet place in nature. The important thing is that you feel comfortable and can relax there. For example, you can put a comfortable cushion to sit on and make sure you won't be disturbed.

🙏 Start with a mantra

A mantra is a word or phrase that you repeat during meditation. It helps you calm your mind and concentrate. A common mantra in Transcendental Meditation is "Om". You can repeat it quietly in your head while you meditate.

😌 Concentrate on your breath

While repeating your mantra, focus on your breath. Feel the air flowing in and out of your lungs. Try to let your breath flow without controlling it. If you feel your thoughts wander, gently bring your attention back to your breath and your mantra.

💭 Let go of your thoughts

An important part of Transcendental Meditation is letting go of thoughts. When you notice that you are thinking about something, just let the thought pass by without evaluating or analyzing it. Imagine that your thoughts are like clouds in the sky, just passing by.

🕰️ Meditate regularly

To get the full benefits of Transcendental Meditation, it is important to meditate regularly. Try to meditate at the same time every day, for example in the morning after waking up and in the evening before going to bed. You can start with 5 minutes a day and gradually increase the duration to 20 minutes.

🌱 Practice patience and forbearance

Don't expect to be perfect at meditation right away. It is normal for the mind to wander and for it to be difficult to let go of thoughts. Be patient with yourself and practice forbearance. With time, you will find that it gets easier and that you can go deeper into meditation.
