Four Methods of Mediation


Mindfulness Method

This is the primary method I talk about and provide tips on in my blog, social media accounts, and BeneFITFull Life Programs.


The mindfulness technique focuses on paying attention to one's current state and truly focusing on the present moment, eliminating the anxiety and fret that can plagued by the unfocused mind. Mindfulness can be accomplished while engaged in a variety of daily activities or tasks: eating, walking, thinking, breathing, or relaxing muscles. One can become mindful of their thoughts, feelings, intentions, relationships, physical body, words, or moods.


Qigong Method

This method is associated with yoga. This method is usually practiced while standing and utilizes concentrated breathing, basic hand movements and physical exercises to calm the mind.


Mantra Method

This is another common mediation method I utilize when coaching clients. This method relies of the oral repetition of a sound, sentences, phrase, or a serious of words with positive personal significance.


When using the true Mantra Method, a person will keep reciting the mantra for each bead on a strand of mala beads to help keep track of the repetitions.


Zen Method

Zen frees the mind by sitting and focusing all attention on an object through many different seated postilions and breathing techniques. The goal of Zen is to separate you from the ego and all negative stimulants.
