I thought a post about meditation was due about now. I'm going to make a long post about stress relief when I have the time and computer to find all of the links I want but for now I'll post this little bit on my meditation.
I'm calling it my meditation because I'm not sure what other people's way of meditating is or how it differs from what I do.
So what is meditation? Meditation means lots of things for a lot of people, for me it's my way of calming myself and getting in touch with myself again. I usually meditate when I'm feeling lost or need to de-stress. Meditation for me is usually one of two things, it can find insights I might have overlooked in my first pass at them or it is a good exercise for healthy brain habits by focusing on keeping your mind blank.
How do I meditate? Well I'm sure other people have lots of other (
probably much better) ways to do it but I personally find a quite, comfortable place where I can sit and feel safe and then I go through my steps.
- Close my eyes
- Picture my body becoming a tree, my backbone being a strong trunk and my tailbone is where my roots start where my face is the fresh green leaves
- Root myself. I feel my backbone growing down into the earth and connecting with it.
- For my safety I put up my shield. By this I mean I picture a impenetrable fource or wall that not only blocks things from harming me but also blocks things out and helps me stay focused. (People picture themselves in a very thorny rosebush or many other things but I personally like to imagine myself in a circle of giant crystals or ice shards)
- Here is where you will think about things you want insight on or decide to use your time to "reset" your mind and work on mental exercises. I like to picture a blank piece of paper or a white wall to start and move on to visualize other things.
Yep that's about it. I have been looking into trance stuff which is really cool but I don't know very much about it so I'm not going to try and go into that here. As I said I will be writing up a long post about stress fighting stuff I love to use and I hope I can do so soon but my life is kind of crazy right now and its a little hard for me to do anything online. X.x well I hope this helped someone somewhere! I certainly like writing about this kind of stuff. Thanks for reading everyone! :3
