    • The Best Meditation Methods
    • Throughout history there have been many different meditation methods.
    • What type of meditation that works best for you depends on what you want to get out of your meditation?

    • Find the one that best fits your needs is very important.
    • What is Meditation?
    • Meditation is when a person concentrates calming their mind and body and focuses on certain thoughts.
    • Sometimes mediation will include body movements or breathing techniques.
    • There are many different meditation methods and they can be practiced in a strict style, or simply as a time for you to relax during the day.
    • Buddhist Meditation
    • Buddhism focuses on one of the oldest types of meditation methods.
    • It is also known as Kashmir shaivism and requires you to focus entirely on achieving self fulfillment.
    • There are many different systems to this type of meditation.
    • Generally, when you are meditating you are simply thinking about how to make yourself a better person.
    • You spend your meditation time building a closer relationship with the "other world" and trying to reach a state of full understanding.
    • This type of meditation will sometimes have you think about why things are the way they are, even of the simplest things in life.
    • Hindu Meditation
    • A type of Hindu meditation is called Kirtan and it focuses on the repeated singing of a single verse.
    • These meditation methods are used as a way to reduce stress and focus attention on advancing the self.
    • People will sing a single deep verse of a song over and over again until the mind ventures off into thinking.
    • In between each song a time of complete silence is left to help you concentrate.
    • Breathing Meditation
    • This is a very general type of meditation that is usually used to help relieve stress.
    • To do this type of meditation, breathe very slowly in and out for several minutes until you have calmed yourself.
    • Just a few minutes of this type of meditation a day is enough to reduce your daily stress levels.
    • Some breathing meditation methods have different types of breathing exercises for each type of mood you are in.
    • Physical Mediation
    • This type of mediation is often used with other meditation methods so that you can get your mind off of the common disruptions that interfere with your concentration.
    • By focusing your attention on specific body parts you stop being disrupted by your itching foot and so on.
    • Start by thinking about your toes.
    • Focus your entire mind on what your toes feel like until they don't feel like anything, then move up to your feet, and then the rest of your body.
    • Once you reach the top of your head you are ready to start concentrating on your thoughts.
    • These are some of the greatest meditation methods there are, and they are used by thousands of people every day.
    • There are many other meditation methods you can find through researching, and it's important that you find one that is best for you.
