It’s funny most people today think mindfulness is one of the most simple ways to meditate. But there are many different meditation techniques, some take more practice, some are more quick and easy. Here are
Mindfulness-based stress reduction courses have become the latest fad in meditation and stress management approaches in the western world over the last 5 years. But now more than ever we have access to more than a few simple ways to meditate or ability to access deep stillness.
Most types of meditation are hugely beneficial at loosening off our crazy attachment to our monkey thoughts. But there is so much more than Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction in the world of meditation. Now when I talk about meditation tools I am not talking about guided meditation, as in many ways this is something different.
Now more than ever we are fortunate to access not just powerful traditional based meditation teachings but also some fast and effective modern meditation techniques.
As a meditation teacher, I have studied and taught various styles of meditation traditional and modern. Some of the most simple ways to meditate are the most powerful.
Here is a sample of some the most simplest meditation techniques I have used and trained in.
Traditional Breath Meditation– is one of the oldest versions of meditation, which involves being an observer of your breath. It involves making sure you let go of any need to try and control or change your breath. Get FREE access to my Traditional Breath Meditation today. Although simple, very stressed out beginners can get very easily distracted and find no 2 more effective at the start.
5 Minute Meditation– A meditation technique that takes just over 4 minutes that I adapted from a style of Qi Qong. I originally used this meditation tool working with easily distracted teenagers. This became the most popular meditation technique I taught over 15 years for most ages. Learn
QE is a technique that induces deep stillness instantly. A very useful tool to aid the client or student who struggled with taking time out, switching off or relaxing. And for chronic pain sufferers.
Mantra Meditation– are often used in yoga, specific mantra’s like OM all have different meanings and different healing benefits. Modern styles of meditation use useful mantras that are also affirmations that can be stress reducing anchors such as RELAX, PEACE.
- Transcendental Meditation- is a simple based mantra based technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Guided Meditation– technically in many ways not the same sort of meditation technique as above as guided visualisations are in many ways guided journeys. Guided visualisations are extremely therapeutic at moving the mind away from negative thoughts to more pleasant healing thoughts, relaxation or sleep. But technically they do not loosen or attachment to our thoughts.
The above meditation techniques are just a few of the most simple ways to meditate effectively. But for many beginners, who are so used to being busy or distracted, the traditional 20 meditation can seem so long. That is why I always suggest to students they build up their practice to 20 minutes slowly. Or start with something like my 5 Minute Meditation, ideal for work, public transport, waiting rooms…It is so simple kids can use it.
