Helpful Hints for Meditation
One hint for meditation is to chose a sacred space. Build up a nice feeling there. Set up a shrine. Treat it for spiritual activities only. Meditation at Ellenbrook Gallery will be really easy. The art up at the moment is by Sri Chinmoy. He meditates and paints at the same time just like he does when he plays his meditation music. This means you will be surrounded by artistic works of peace. This will be really helpful for meditation. The gallery has a really peaceful atmosphere.
Another tip is to not eat before meditation. It will reduce you feeling of lethargy and make you more alert. Falling asleep is a common problem when you are learning to meditate. Eating only increases the chances!
Lastly if you want to learn to meditate try it in a group. Group meditation is more powerful than individual meditation. It is easier. Just like exercising with friends is easier so is meditation but…your daily individual meditations are still crucial to establishing a regular practise.
