Meditation Norfolk - The ancient discipline of meditation concentrates on methods in order to quiet the thinking mind so as to bring about awareness and deep relaxation. Meditation methods have been practice for thousands of years in a lot of the cultures all over the world. It has several of its roots in Eastern philosophy and religions. Buddhism and Hinduism have several teachings which include meditation to attain spiritual enlightenment. Other religions like Christianity, Judaism and Catholicism make use of various types of meditation through prayer. There are many types of meditation instruction consisting of: chakra meditation, mantra meditation, guided imagery, focusing on things and breathing methods.

For beginning practitioners, instructions about breathing meditation methods are the simplest and easiest to implement. These methods would focus the awareness on breathing as a way in order to calm the mind. This can be attained by counting the inhalations and exhalations and by focusing on the movement of one's breath. For example, a technique for moving the breath is inhaling into the left nostril and afterward breathing out through the right nostril. Focusing the breath onto or into a certain part of the body is normally utilized in healing meditations where a person sends their energy into various cells which need nourishment and healing.

Guided imagery meditation is a format that usually makes use of a script read by an individual other than the meditating practitioner. This particular type of meditation takes the practitioner on an internal journey using relaxation techniques and creative visualization. Guided imagery is often used in hypnosis and in pain management. It can be practiced in different ways. For example, some individuals find a great choice for coping with tension is to picture a peaceful spot. Other people who are working to be able to heal emotional wounds may make use of this particular type of meditation to purposely revisit a traumatic experience to be able to facilitate the healing process.

Meditation with mantras are one more type of instruction making use of repetitive sound vibrations in order to help calm the mind, while opening up the heart to obtain a higher level of consciousness. It is not unusual to use prayer bowl or bell in mantra meditation along with verbal chants such as "Om" or "love." The belief behind this particular kind of meditation form is that specific tone vibrations could have a healing effect on an individual either spiritually, physically or mentally.

There are seven main energy centers within the body called chakras. Meditation that focuses on the various chakras is one more type of instruction. Several types of yoga use the chakras in the meditative and physical or otherwise called savasana parts of the practice. Typically, these are guided meditations. Often the practitioners' focus the breath and the mind on the specific chakra utilizing their particular color properties and visualization. Like for example, someone who is meditating on the heart chakra will visualize a green spinning wheel over the chest while focusing energy in the center of the chest.

Another more advanced meditation instruction uses an open-eyed focus on things. Often in this practice candles are used. The practitioner tries to clear the mind while gazing into the flame for an extended period of time. The goal of this is to follow the fire but to keep the focus on the quality of the observation and not allowing the mind the chance to wander. Generally, it does not matter what the object is. The practice is just meant to build up awareness and alertness.
