Meditation for Beginners
If you've never meditated before, you are about to discover the life-changing benefits of something as simple as meditating. There are 5 common faulty beliefs that prevent people from taking advantage of this powerful tool.
1. You can't stop your mind from thinking and therefore you can't meditate.
In fact, you can never stop the activity in the brain. Even if you master meditation and you quiet your mind, there is still low activity that will push forward thoughts or images. That's normal.
2. Successful meditation is about not thinking.
In fact, in a lot of cases of beginners' meditation, the opposite is true. It is not about how many thoughts you didn't have but about refocusing your attention back to the meditation again and again. This is exactly what happens in life - distractions and situation come but it's your ability to quickly refocus that makes your mind strong.
3. You want to start meditating but you don't know how and you don't want to spend money and time on a meditation class.
Your brain already has the skill. Similar to learning to ride a bike, a simple introduction is all that you need. After that, you can tailor your meditations to your life style and preferences, similar to choosing different biking trails once you've learned how to ride. It's much simpler than it seems and it takes less than 5 minutes to learn.
4. You want to meditate but you can't fit it in your busy schedule.
The funny fact about meditation is that while it takes a little of your time, it will help you to have more time. When you train your brain in meditation, studies show that it increases your mental capacity, especially focus, attention and reaction to stress. While you spend minutes a day in meditation, your efficiency will increase noticeably and projects will need less time to complete. You will be more organized and without the fuzzy filter of stress, you will be able to make your choices from a clear mind.
5. You want to meditate but you don't know which meditation type is right for you.
The type of meditation is a personal preference. You can start with one type and change it later on. You can alternate different types of meditation, depending on your time and mental state.
For a beginner, meditation is about learning focused attention and mindfulness.
By focusing on a sound, mantra, chant, or simply on your breath, you are quieting the rest of the activity in the brain. This has a triple purpose:
Training your "attention" muscle
By focusing on the meditation, you train your brain to stay focused at your will. You take charge of your attention. Your attention is what you use to create your life. You can direct your attention to anything: your success, your goals, things you love about people and things you appreciate. Alternatively, you can put your attention on fearful or negative thoughts, drama, victimization or any other self-sabotaging patterns. Your life will reflect your attention choices accordingly. By strengthening this muscle, you become selective and learn to put your attention to what benefits you.
Resolving old traumas, even ones you are not consciously aware of
Meditation is about mindfulness. You are paying attention to what happens in real time - whether it's your breath, the sound, or the mantra you are repeating in your mind. This recalibrates your autonomic nervous system and helps resolve old traumatic experiences that still dictate your choices. Neuroscience says that the only way to access your "emotional" brain is by activating the medial prefrontal cortex - the area that is activated when you are paying attention to what is going on inside of you, in other words, when you are mindful.
Releasing the stress
By staying focused on the meditation, you are not thinking about your bills, your job, your children, your chores or anything else that stresses you out. For the duration of the meditation, you've consciously decided to put it all on pause. This immediately reduces the stress levels. What this means to you? When you are stressed, you are activating the fight-or-flight response to a different degree. When it is activated, it decreases the immune system functions, the prefrontal cortex functions, as well as various visceral processes. It also makes you more defensive, which directly affects your emotional state. When you release the stress, your health improves, your brain improves, you have more energy and your emotions are stable.
The Big Meditation Challenge
There are several common difficulties with beginners in meditation:
- they fall asleep during meditation (they relax but can't sustain focus),
- they can't focus and they spent most of the time "idling", meaning thinking about different things that come to mind,
- or they get frustrated and actually end up being more stressed out from the meditation.
At First, Meditation Could Be Hard. Why Is That?
The brain has two modes of operation that use different brain regions: the "idle" mode and the "direct experience" (mindfulness) mode. The first mode is when your brain is weaving stories about you, the people around you, your past and your future. We do this all day long when we are not engaged in anything. This is a very low effort mode.
The "direct experience" mode is much harder to sustain. To test it, stop reading and try to focus completely on the sensations in your right hand for 20 seconds. You will notice that even 20 seconds are very hard and your brain starts "idling", bringing different thoughts to the surface.
What Meditation for Beginners Will Do for You
Meditation for Beginners is a powerful tool that will help you to easily and effortlessly overcome the meditation challenges. It strengthens the attention and it keeps the medial prefrontal cortex active to keep you mindful through the meditation. In this way, you can mediate as an experienced meditator without years of practice. What's more, over just a few weeks it trains your brain to maintain such states easily without its help.
How can a simple audio recording do all that?
This is a brainwave therapy recording. Your brain emits a large amount of electricity, defined by 5 main types of brainwaves: Delta - sleep, Theta - deep relaxation, Alpha - relaxed focus, Beta - alertness and Gamma - high concentration. The brain can also be induced into a specific state by playing a rhythmical tone with the specific brainwave frequency (this is called the Frequency Following Response in the brain).
Researchers have measured the brainwaves of experiences meditators and they all represent specific variations of Alpha waves.
Meditation for Beginners will train your brain into that meditative state during the meditation but it will also help you to achieve that state easily in the future without having to use it. Your brain is a quick learner. What's more, while listening to it, you don't have to put any effort at all. You don't have to focus on anything (you could, if you wanted to enhance your practice). It just naturally puts your brain in the right meditative state.
