It goes without saying that meditation is one of the most powerful tools that if used properly, can help us achieve wealth, health and happiness. It helps us release negative thoughts and energy and instead, focus on joy and positivity.
It is one of the most important ingredients to a more potent Silva living.
But I have been noticing some general misunderstandings about meditation that I really feel I should address.
Here is a list of the top 5:
1. Stop Thinking
This is harder than it sounds I know.
It is only natural, but contrary to popular beliefs, meditation is not only about completely stopping your thoughts or completely blanking your mind.
During meditation, when you feel you mind begin to wander, it natural, just stop and bring it back to the present and your meditation.
A good technique is to ask yourself “I wonder what my next thought will be?”. Go ahead and do it. Did you notice a pause in your thoughts?
2. Meditate to Escape
This cannot be a more wrong belief. It is with meditation that we come face-to-face with our most innermost fears, pain and most selfish of desires.
When we can sit with and accept these unwelcome parts of ourselves we begin to disempower them. This simple act of allowing and accepting has deep significance in the process of healing and liberation.
3. You Have To Sit In The Full Lotus Position
Contrary to popular beliefs, you do not have to sit on the floor in a full lotus position to meditate. The most important thing is that you are a hundred percent comfortable, and in a comfortable environment which will not distract your meditation process.
As long as you are relaxed, focus, and you keep your spine straight, your meditation session should be a wonderful and rewarding experience.
4. Meditation Is Deep Relaxation
While meditation is very helpful in managing stress and helping us overcome illnesses and obtaining the perfect health, its not right to reduce it to just “deep relaxation”. To be fair, being relaxed is only one part of successful meditation, while the other half is keeping the mind alert.
I know this sounds confusing, but this is the tricky part of meditation, which you can overcome over time and with constant practice and guidance from your Silva audio home study course.
5. Just Follow The CD
While the Silva Method provides you with a step-by-step guide on how to achieve all of your desires easily through a number of programs which we present to you in the form of CDs, you and I both know that we cannot just plug it in and leave it to do all the work.
The life that you desire is filled with success, healing and freedom and it can be achieved through a few additional techniques and tools which will compliment your existing programs, such as lessons and other tips that I give out here in this blog.
Also don’t forget to practice your meditation and make a habit of doing it at least once a day, to accelerate your potential and help you achieve your desires.
Better and better,
