For Those Having Trouble Concentrating During Meditation
October 30, 2009
When we have trouble concentrating during meditation it’s usually because we are not meditating at all. Well we are meditating but the problem is we are meditating on the world. We sit down, say our mantra 2 times and start to think about our life. Of course this is not what we originally hoped for our focus to be on. So I have a suggestion to see if this is the case and hopefully correct it. When you sit down to meditate, see how many times you actually repeat your mantra. If you are using my video “How to Meditate with the Highest Form of Meditation” the beginning mantra would be A-U-M. After each A-U-M, count, for example say A-U-M then count 1, A-U-M then count 2. See if you get to 10. If you don’t, try again until you get to 10. After you reach 10, do not count anymore. Continue to repeat the mantra without counting. When you count, do not use your fingers. This brings your concentration below the eyebrow center. In the “How to Meditate video” I do not mention counting with each repetition up to ten. This is only for when having trouble concentrating.
You can even practice this mantra during your day when you are not sitting down meditating. You can do this when you are walking, driving, etc., with your eyes open of course. But when it is time to meditate, you do it with the eyes closed sitting down like on the download
I love discovering the mysteries of God and The Universe. My goal is to allow as much of the infinite to come through as freely as possible as I live my life as a father, husband, son, brother friend, meditation teacher, writer, and business owner.
I teach meditation, interpret dreams, write, and try to share as much as I learn along the way as possible.
