Understanding the Concept of Meditation



There are many reasons why people meditate. Some do it because they want freedom in their mental health or even to better their physical wellness. Some do it so as to get great and life changing ideas or to get clear directives for certain issues. Meditation is an art that should be mastered so that you can get the best out of it. You should therefore have the necessary techniques of meditation, and they are very simple.

The most obvious thing to do if you are on meditation is to get away from anything that can distract you. Meditation demands that your entire being is in harmony and concentration with pin point accuracy, and this cannot happen when your phone is ringing or the children are running around. You cannot also do meditation when the television is on or when you have a cake baking in the oven. You strictly need to detach yourself from the “other self” that does daily work and that fulfills his/her duties.

Just as it is impossible to find beds in the library where people go to study, your meditation room or place should be one that encourages good posture, many people complain that they fall asleep when meditating, but this is quite expected if you meditate when lying on the bed in your warm and cozy beddings.

Sitting upright is the best position you can adapt during meditation, because the straighter your spine is, the better the effectiveness of your meditation. Sit upright on a firm and flat place, and support your spine with pillows if necessary. The neck should also be upright and straight to ensure a good posture of your back.

When your meditation posture is okay, close your eyes, and be deliberate in every step you take. When the eyes are closed, concentrate on your facial muscles. Being aware of them will enable you to be deliberate in making them relax. Spend the first five minutes relaxing. Remember to be deliberate in all this, because relaxation will rarely come naturally. Watch your breathing pattern, too.

Breathe softly and completely, and concentrate on your breath. Breathing completely means that you should ensure that you fully but gently breathe in and out, without letting residues remain. Pause for a short time at the end of every breath you make. When distracting thought come, do not just restrain them; recognize them and deliberately cause then to smoothly flow away by replacing them with virtuous thoughts.

Can You Attain Complete Spiritualism with the Help of Knowledge?

Man deluded himself to believe that he was all-powerful. He began to reject the presence of a superior power, the creator of this universe. Undoubtedly, knowledge gives the feeling of strength and power. One can defeat a physically stronger adversary who is ignorant by using his mental prowess and skill. Ignorance is really a course. However, it is better to be ignorant, live in bliss than boast because of a little knowledge, and make a fool of oneself.
Today, everything is on the basis of knowledge. Man thinks that if you have knowledge, you have power. It is on partially true. According to the religious scriptures, knowledge lies within one’s self.  Only self-knowledge can give man the spirituality to withstand the vicissitudes of life, without getting disturbed. Knowledge of the world of senses is only superficial and tends to create waves of dissatisfaction, greed and lust only. Any person who has realized that can certainly say with clam authority that real knowledge comes from se…

The law of attraction says that whatever you put your focus on is whatever you get. When you put your focus on the spiritual matters of human personality growth you opt to convey a supernatural magnetic attraction.

Acupuncture and Weight Loss

There are a lot of people who are overweight. For those who are obese, perhaps surgery is the best option but for those who can’t, they can try to see if acupuncture can help take out the excess weight.

Acupuncture is a form of holistic healthcare that uses needles to help treat a patient.  Unlike the cartoon where the balloon will pop and all the air will go out, the needles that are inserted into the vital points will stimulate the body to release endorphins thus helping the person control their appetite.

But before needles are inserted, the specialist will first ask the patient some questions and perform an examination. This is needed to understand the main cause for the person to be overweight.

Part of examination is to help the acupuncturist figure out where the needles will be inserted. Your pulse will give the person an idea on your general state of energy and the general health of your stomach.

You will also have to open your mouth and show your tongue to check for cracks, pe…
