Enjoy the Mind-Altering Benefits of Deep Meditation

If you want to learn more about meditation techniques, then you have definitely come to the right place. Through the practice of meditation, you can achieve enormous benefits, both physical and emotional. Some of the amazing things you can expect to experience include increased blood flow, lowered heart rate, reduced anxiety and stress levels, improved breathing, heightened intuition and productivity levels, and better emotional stability. If you have practiced meditation before, then you may now want to take your meditation to the next level by practicing deep meditation.

Enjoy the Benefits of Deep Meditation

There are two principle techniques you can use to practice deep meditation. They are:

  • Mantra Meditation
  • Binaural Beats

Mantra meditation entails the silent repetition of a single word, syllable, or sound over and over again in your head. Through the performance of a repetitious task, your brain is kept active and busy, thus allowing it to detach itself from stressful and anxiety-inducing thoughts so it can fully relax. The sound that you repeat to yourself can be anything you want, but the one that is most often is used is ‘Om.’

To practice mantra meditation, enter into a quiet and secluded space where you will be distraction-free. Seat yourself in a comfortable, upright position. Inhale deeply. Then, as you exhale slowly, say the word, ‘Om’ (in your head or out loud if you wish) as you release your breath. Continue performing this routine for several minutes, concentrating on your breath the entire time.

Once you feel like you have entered into a state of total relaxation, close your eyes and allow your mind to continue repeating the sound, ‘Om’ (or any other word you want) in whatever way feels the most comfortable and natural.

Your goal is to continue repeating the mantra while expending the least amount of energy.

This practice should feel virtually effortless. Simply allow the mantra to float through your mind whichever way feels best.

If, at any point, your mind starts to stray off course, gently coax it back to its focus on the mantra. It is perfectly normal and to be expected to veer off track every now and again.

After performing around 10-15 minutes of mantra meditation, let the mantra dissolve from your mind. Then, allow a few minutes to pass while maintaining a deeply relaxed state of mind and keeping your eyes closed. Eventually, when you feel comfortable, slowly open your eyes.

The second useful way to perform deep meditation is through the use of binaural beats.

To do this, you can use a pair of headphones to listen to the unique sounds of binaural beats, which act as a form of brainwave entrainment.

Binaural beats permit your brain to listen to sounds on a slightly different frequency, which in turn allows your brain to also operate on that same frequency, enabling you to slip into a deeper meditative state.

She started meditating a few years ago, while living in Brazil, and has REALLY enjoyed the benefits of meditation since then. With regular meditation, Rachel reports feeling more calm, at peace, relaxed… and having a greater sense of “knowing”. That being said, she doesn’t always remember to meditate… … and is working on practicing more often. She finds that guided meditations help a lot, though. It can be really difficult to get still yourself, so having someone point you in the direction you want to take is priceless. When not meditating, Rachel has several other passions. Her interests range from reading, traveling, belly dancing, psychology, yoga, Toastmasters, and everything in between.
