Meditation has exploded in popularity as a way to become more mindful and grounded in a hectic world. There are many ways to start your own practice and many styles to choose from. Here are 5 of the most popular methods today.
Transcendental Meditation (TM)
TM is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. The TM technique allows your active mind to easily settle inward, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness — pure consciousness.
Mindfulness meditation is a technique that encourages us to find our ability to be fully present in our current environment. Over time, mindfulness meditation will help you to become more aware of where you are, what you’re doing, and reign in one’s tendencies to overreact or become overwhelmed by what is going on around you.
Zazen meditation is similar to mindfulness meditation, but requires more discipline and practice. It is a study that helps one find insight into the nature of existence. During Zazen meditation, one must suspend all judgmental thinking and let all thoughts, words, images, and ideas pass by and be “let go”.
When practicing guided meditation, you’ll follow a teacher’s voice and instruction as they help you through your meditation session. With a number of applications providing such guidance, guided meditation is a great way to get started with meditation and is easily accessible by most people with a smartphone and a place to sit comfortably.
Kundalani yoga focuses around two basic components - the use of sounds, and the use of breath. Typically, you’ll use a given mantra and repeat it to yourself, either out loud or silently to yourself. You’ll also focus your attention on your breath throughout your meditation and how it interacts with your sense of being.
