Meditate twice a day - Success in meditation is the result of many factors, the most important of which is regularity. If time is short, even a few minutes of meditation is preferable to non. It would be better to miss a meal than to miss a meditation.
Same time of day - A daily routine, practicing meditation at the same time each day creates a dynamic flow which brings order, joy, and reduces stress. The best times tend to be in the morning, preferably during sunrise and in the afternoon, during sunset.
Same Place - Having a room or a quiet corner where you meditate regularly helps to create a supportive environment for meditation.
No interruptions - Tell others your times for meditation, that it's important to you not to be disturbed. Turn your phone off and forget the world for a while.
On a light stomach - Digestion uses much energy. Meditation requires energy also, so meditation before meals will give you a better chance for success.
Half Bath First - Cooling your eyes, face, crown of your head, lower back, stomach, back of your knees and the opposite side of your elbows helps you get energized and stay awake during meditation.
Back straight - Body posture influences mental alertness. Your meditation experience will improve when you can sit relaxed with with your back straight.
Read inspiring literature on meditation or spirituality - Keep uplifting ideas in your mind. Spirituality requires constant encouragement to overcome the negativity around us. Inspiring books help.
Keep good company - Mature, sympathetic, and uplifting friends have a tremendous, positive influence on our minds. Avoid negative people. Make friends and spend time with people who meditate.
Attend Collective Meditation - Meditating with others generates positive energy and reinforces our determination to overcome obstacles and move toward our goal. Come to Sunday Yoga or find local silent meditation groups in your area.
Regular contact with a teacher - Teachers such as yoga or Buddhist monks or nuns have dedicated their lives to helping others achieve success in their meditation and spiritual life. Their primary interest is your progress, so try to meet with teachers often, and be open to their suggestions. For a referral to a yoga monk - meditation teacher, ask Gustavo Monje.
Be Patient and determined - Meditation works. The results surface gradually, and you may not be aware of the subtle changes taking place in you. Within six months, you will have experienced unquestionable positive growth. Furthermore, your vibration starts to get higher as you get on the frequency of love and spirituality.
Select food carefully - Food affects our body and mind, and some foods are not recommended for meditators, due to their disturbing effects on concentration and mood. A practitioner of satvic diet can help explain why the following foods should be avoided: meat, chicken, fish, eggs, onions, garlic, and mushrooms.
Avoid stimulants - Any artificial stimulation of the mind and nervous system will obstruct your meditation and may have harmful side effects. Nicotine, alcohol, cannabis, and other harmful drugs work against the meditation technique.
Practicing some or all of these guidelines will give you results. Gustavo Monje is a spiritual life coach, schedule an appointment with him for more success in your meditation.
