Day 2 of LHHG Challenge.
Question, has everyone signed up for the 21-Day Meditation Challenge? If not, take the time now to sign up and begin participating to complete this section of goals for this week. Our first week’s meditation goals were selected exclusively for LHHG’s community members and visitors to learn about the importance of meditation, acquiring knowledge on how to relax, and exploring various meditation techniques.
The Oprah and Depak’s 21-Day Meditation Challenge nurtures the mind and the body to discover a healthy and balanced sense of well-being. Our first goal is to understand the importance of meditation and how it reinforces discipline and relaxation. By practicing bringing your body into a state of calmness, it allows you to get rid of a cluttered mind and a tense body. In contrast, if you are not comfortable with the connotation of the word meditation, then pray. With this in mind, you can achieve a meditated state of mind by doing what you do best, which is praying. And as we all know and sometimes forget, it’s a custom that most dominations commonly practice for a peaceful mind.
Our journey also includes learning how to relax. In this day and age, life has become one big cluttered day. We leave the house in the morning to head to work, drop off the kids and pick them up, deal with daily work related issues, run errands for the family, and the list goes on. By the end of our day, when we can actually sit down to rest, it is time to eat and it is time to go to sleep. This is why we must master, for at least 10-15 minutes a day the discipline to take time for ourselves.
Deepak Chopra, M.D. is a spiritual leader and a master in meditation techniques. Chopra provides in the 21-Day Meditation Challenge a variety of ways to achieve silence. By the same token, I truly believe in the power of meditation. My interest in learning how to meditate began when I read Russell Simmons’ book “Super Rich,” which provides insight into the world of yoga. Both Chopra and Simmons speak about tailoring a variety of meditation techniques to compliment personal comfort. For instance, I prefer sitting up, because I fall asleep when I am lying down. Over time, you will learn several techniques to choose from.
For the purpose of perfecting a meditated state of mind, you should consider properly preparing for an undisturbed meditation experience. First, I suggest inspecting places that you do not have to worry about safety and noise. Next, I advocate examining times that you will not be or less likely be interrupted; this will help you keep anxiety at bay. Last, I recommend trying several positions so you can get a feel of what is the best arrangement for your body. After preparing to meditate, you can comfortable set aside time to surrender yourself to a higher state of mind.
As we begin day 2 of LHHG’s challenge with the understanding of the importance of meditation, learning how to relax, and exploring various techniques, you will be well on your way toward attaining tranquility. Over the next few weeks, we will come to a complete understanding that we all aspire to have, which is a source of calmness in our lives. This can be achieved through discipline and relaxation brought on by your dedication to perfecting inner peace.
