It's like riding a bike; once you've learned how to meditate, then it's a process you'll have access to the whole of your life. But where can you learn to meditate?
There are online meditation tutorials, so they are often an excellent place to start. So long as they're not complicated with lots of jargon.
Most are good and take the time to explain any terms they use so that beginners can understand them. When starting, it's essential to choose a meditation method that's easy to pick up.
I'd suggest a breathing meditation, a walking meditation, or, if you prefer, a "high-tech" meditation like Centerpointe, where all you need to do is sit down and play a CD.
Centerpointe meditation is a mindfulness practice that involves focusing on your breath. As a result, you may experience an increase in serotonin, promoting positive moods. In addition, meditation can relieve stress and anxiety. Taking a few minutes out of your day to meditate can have surprising benefits.
The Centerpointe program takes you through several enlightening experiences. First, it takes you through the process of achieving your CenterPoint, which is a point of focus.
The program uses binaural beats, individual tones presented to both the left and right ear, cleverly interwoven into audio CDs.
Of course, each method has pluses and minuses, but as a general rule, they are all easy enough to pick up.
Once you've decided on a meditation method, try it for a week, and see whether or not you get on with it. If you do, keep going with it. If you don't, then try another method instead. As with everything else in life, not everyone gets on with everything.
There's no embarrassment if you don't like a particular method. A week or two's trial is a reasonable length of time. Anything less, and it's unlikely you've given the technique a fair trial.
After all, driving a car took you more than one lesson. Do your best to meditate at the same time each day. We're creatures of habit, including meditation, especially when you are learning something new, set aside a specific time of the day when you are most likely to be able to carry out your meditation practice.
