To give you an answer, here are the types of meditation techniques and you must try ‘em all to find the perfect and suitable one for you. 😉
- Focused Meditation
FOCUS – This is certainly a very hard thing to do in meditation. Focus is absolutely needed a lot. We all know that when we meditate, our mind keeps thinking about several other things i.e. our mind is not focused on one particular thing. Yes, I mainly think about what I’ll do when the meditation is done etc, but in the midst of all this, I fail to meditate correctly. I’m sure it must be a problem with you as well.
So, to deal with it, when you sit and try this focused meditation- Think about one particular thing only. I mean, there are various sounds around you, so just focus hard on one of it continuously till you’re done. Trust me; it’ll work.
- Zen Meditation
This meditation is quite popular and is regularly practiced in Japan. In order to do this meditation, you can be seated down as well as you can do it on a chair as well. So, suppose you’re seated on a chair, sit straight, and keep your eyes down. Now, focus on the breath that is going in and out through the nose. The best thing is keep counting the breaths and if you miss it, then start all over again.
- Metta Meditation
Metta is a word that means good will and Kindness. In this meditation technique, you learn self-acceptance and you tend to become more positive with your thoughts and you start appreciating and loving yourself more than ever.
To practice this meditation, sit straight with your eyes closed and in your mind, start thinking about yourself and then your friends and family, and think positive about everything. As in, wish something positive for them and hold love towards them in the whole process. By doing this continuously, you’ll start walking on the same track and you’ll feel complete positiveness.
