Healing through Meditation in 7 Steps


Healing through meditation has been performed by spiritually enlightened persons for thousands of years. The great thing about it, especially in the context of our modern times, is that no “special” power is needed in order to perform it—ordinary folks like you and I can easily meditate to achieve health and healing, and we can do this whenever it is convenient for us. The following are the easy no-BS steps in performing meditation on your own.

1. Find a quiet place in your home where you will not be interrupted for at least 30 minutes. Ideally, this would be your bedroom, where you can lock the door to ensure no one would just barge in and interrupt your attempt in achieving healing through meditation. It may also help to place a sign on your door to inform your housemates that they should not disturb you.

2. The best time to meditate is in the evening when activities have significantly died down and when you can do it in the dark. The absence of light is believed to stimulate certain glands that enable you to “get in the zone”.

3. Sit on a spot where you can be comfortable. Sitting on a yoga mat placed on the floor is recommended, but the point is, as long as you’re comfortable, the battle is half won. Relax and close your eyes and stop caring about the outside world—here, you are in your bubble of calm and happiness.

4. Start breathing deeply and slowly. Do this by inhaling through your nose slowly, filling up your lungs with air, and holding it there for a few seconds before exhaling through your mouth. Did we mention “slowly”? Continue breathing in this fashion for at least three times.
