Walking Meditation Basics

Study after study find that meditation provides a wealth of benefits for your body, mind, and soul. It naturally reduces stress and lowers blood pressure. It builds focus and memory. But what if you’ve tried meditation and just can’t sit still?

What if you have medical issues that cause great pain if you attempt to sit or even lie down stationary for a long period of time? For these, and for a thousand other reasons, walking meditations should be a critical part of every person’s tool kit of useful skills.

What Is Walking Meditation?

Walking meditation involves bringing yourself into a meditative state while moving through an area. You are no longer trapped like a bald saffron-robed monk in a high tower of a Himalayan monastery. Instead, you are roaming freely through a beautiful wood with birds singing high in the trees and the sun glistening down through the leaves.

Maybe you are strolling along a river walk, taking in the ducks as they skim along the water’s surface. It could be you are mindfully navigating a labyrinth through a garden, watching as its twists and turns take you ever more closely toward its center.

That is the beauty of walking meditation. It can be done anywhere. At any time. Even in the comfort of your own home.

How Does A Walking Meditation Work?

Learning how to meditate can often seem very complicated. Meditations can seem to involve special, embroidered cushions of just the right height. A piece of ideal music is often recommended that has just the right balance of soothing tone and swirly melodies. With walking meditation, though, the world is your soundtrack. Nature itself provides the atmosphere.

Some people like to do a walking meditation through a city landscape, taking in the full diversity of humanity which forms our global community. Other people prefer to do their walking meditation in a park or garden, where the “civilization” falls away and we connect more closely with the world as it once was.

The beauty of walking meditations is that you don’t have to limit yourself to just one option. One day you can choose to walk through an awe-inspiring art museum, pausing before each object to draw in its unique message. On another day you can walk through a quiet forest, allowing each rustle of leaf-on-branch to pull you further into your mindfulness.

And some days you can walk in quiet loops around your home, letting the rain showers outside gently wash away any worries and concerns. All that matters is the heel-arch-toe. Heel-arch-toe.
Breathe.
Breathe.

What Are The Theta Binaural Beats Benefits?

For those of you who don’t know what Theta waves are – they’re number ‘2’ of the slowest type of brainwave that occurs regularly in your brain. Theta waves normally surface when you’re experiencing potent emotions, including when you’re most creative or have heightened spiritual feelings.

Binaural beats can help you experience your true self and feelings by using Theta waves in recordings designed especially to improve a behavior pattern or get rid of an addiction.

There’s another brainwave called “Beta” that influences another area of your brain. When you’ve been on Beta brainwaves too long, you might experience imbalances in your potassium and sodium levels. Your conscious level then experiences a lack of concentration and mental fatigue.

Sodium and potassium levels can be reset when you experience Theta waves. These two minerals help transport valued chemicals in and out of brain cells. When these two important mineral levels are reset, you’ll feel refreshed, mentally relaxed, and ready to focus on work or creative pursuits.

Since we’re all different, many of us can delve into Theta states easier than others. Those who practice relaxation and meditation techniques on a regular basis are more likely to experience the many positive effects of Theta brain waves more naturally – and faster.

It may also help to know that Theta waves are found in our brains when we experience deep relaxation, a spurt of learning activity, and when we’re close to sleep. Understandably, Theta waves occur more often in children.

Binaural Beats Science

Scientific studies have found that people who suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can’t focus as well because of less activity of Theta waves.

More people are realizing the positive benefits of Theta waves – and are using binaural beats to achieve a Theta state of mind.

Some other positive effects of Theta waves are:

Healing – The body heals much more complete and much faster when you’re in the Theta state.

Intuition – Who doesn’t want to have more acute intuition? You can work on improving your intuitive qualities with Theta waves.

Confidence – Theta waves bring a sense of self-esteem to your brain. You’ll feel more confident about your skills and capabilities.

5 Minute Guided Breath Meditation For Beginners

5 Minute Guided Breath Meditation For Beginners

September 9, 2019

Creating your own meditation practice can be as simple as setting aside just five minutes a day to listen to your breath. One of the greatest benefits of meditating is that it is entirely up to you as to how, when, and how long you want to meditate. You have the ability to create your own meditation practice and find a balance that works for you and your lifestyle.

Meditation can be as simple as just listening to your breath in and out of your nose or chest. Just sit down, get comfortable, and just breathe in and out. You will find a rhythm that works for you, and, the more you practice the easier the process will become uniquely you.

Meditation is one of the most powerful methods for living I have learned, but it is also one of the most simple processes.

BEGIN GUIDED MEDITATION SCRIPT:

Welcome to this meditation for beginners it's wonderful that you are here. Meditation is a very important tool to use in our lives to keep us centered and balanced.

Meditation is a practice and the best part is you cannot do it wrong. Today we will practice a very simple form of meditation, one that can be done anytime, anywhere.

Begin by sitting in a position that is comfortable for you. Taking a moment to focus on your spine. We often have a tendency to sit hunched over, especially when we use electronics. Meditation is a great time to reach, retrain ourselves to sit up straight, tall, and proud.

Let your palms rest gently in your lap, facing downwards and whenever you're ready, just softly close your eyes if that is comfortable for you. If it's not, you can just let your gaze rest gently on the floor. Begin to bring your awareness to your breathing without trying to judge it or change it.

Just let yourself notice how you are currently breathing, and what muscles do you use when you breathe. Where does the air go when it flows in? How does it feel as it exits out? Anytime you find your mind wandering, no, that that's perfectly okay. Just return your awareness to your breath. Letting yourself be curious.

How is my breath flowing in and out of my body? And on your next inhale, intentionally breathe through your nose, feeling your stomach and chest. Expand and exhale through your mouth, feeling your stomach and chest contract.

Continue the cycle. Breathing in through your nose has your stomach and chest rises and exhaling through your mouth as your stomach and chest fall. As you let yourself be intentional with how you breathe, it gives your mind something to hold onto, something to focus on.
