Meditation in Kerala

About
Meditation is one of the most important components of Yoga, which is a mind-body therapy involving a series of exercises. The word 'meditation' covers many disparate practices from visualizing situations, focusing on objects or images, thinking through a complex idea, or even getting lost in a provocative book, all qualifying as meditation in the broad sense. However in Yoga, meditation generally refers to the more formal practice of focusing the mind and observing oneself in the moment.

Meditation in KeralaSimply put, meditation is designed to carry us beyond the illusions created by our thoughts and senses so that we are able to experience everything in its truest form. Therefore, it is a focusing of the mind on a single object so as to create a cessation of all thought. As thoughts dissipate, the mind becomes quiet and devoid of all distractions, and we are able to exist completely in the present moment. Practiced to its advanced stages, meditation is contended to be the means of achieving the exalted state of enlightenment or supreme self-realization.

Techniques of Meditation
The techniques of meditation are simple and easy to learn, though the ability to keep the mind focused takes time, patience and practice. And while few reach the exalted state, meditation confers many benefits along the way. The benefits of practicing meditation regularly include reduction of stress, tension, anxiety and frustration, as well as improved memory, concentration, inner peace and physical well-being. Meditation has also proven to be highly effective in treating psychological conditions such as obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression, schizophrenia and anxiety.

Meditation - The Panacea of all Diseases

Meditation emboldens body's immune system, wards off diseases and enables quick recovery from diseases. Meditation helps mould a mind healthy, alert, positive, and calm. This, in turn, produces a body filled with vitality and health. A blend of meditation, proper diet, and yoga postures improves the general health. Medical journals say even serious heart and circulatory problems can be reversed through a regime of diet, meditation, and exercise.

Meditation takes away fear, worry, and anger and replaces the mind with positive, strong attitudes. Its daily practice gives control over the flow of life-force. As a result, an attitudinal change takes place leading to dispassionate approach to worldly pleasures.

One of the easiest ways to meditate is listening songs or reading holy books for ten or twenty minutes. While sitting with spine erect, you are aligning energy to the Almighty force.

Meditation in Kerala

When it comes to Ayurveda, Yoga or Meditation, the first place that really grabs our attention is Kerala. When it comes to rejuvenating yourself, there's no other destination in India than the Backwaters of Kerala. Kerala tour is a tour for body, mind and soul. A place in south India where nature shimmers in its freshness.

Normal Steps
  1. Sit in a chair with spine erect, shoulders relaxed, feet flat on the floor. Fold hands together in lap and close eyes.
  2. Take three slow deep breaths, exhaling to the base of spine, and feel relaxing. Sit with hands together for a few minutes.
  3. Open hands, palms up, laying them gently in lap. Keep focus on music, reading, song whatever is there.
  4. Meditator can affirm or visualize such as, "The Perfect partner is manifesting in my life," or whatever you are choosing to create in life, i.e. prosperity, wisdom, career. If the meditation is in the evening after the daily routines, review the day, how you reacted in situation, take fresh, positive decisions.
  5. Close hand into a fist and feel a balloon of white light a block all around you and underneath you so that you're in the center. This sends love and healing out to the world and buffers negative energy from coming into you.
Meditation in KeralaTrue meditation does not end here. Endeavor to practice the meditation attitude in thoughts and behaviour. In short, meditation is a simple and powerful tool to lead a stress-free life. Relationships will be rewarding once developed a calm, relaxed sensitivity of life via meditation.

All forms of meditation are good, but in our high speed society, we need to learn how to protect our energy by closing down at the end.

Breathing
In meditation diaphragmatic breathing is important. As we inhale, diaphragm, a dome-shaped muscle, contracts and flattens its curve, creating a vacuum into which the lungs can expand. As this happens the diaphragm pushes the abdominal muscles outward.

Diaphragmatic breathing can, and should, be done in any position, but it is easiest to re-learn when you are most relaxed, lying on the floor. Lie on your back with your arms at your sides, palms upward. Many people find it easier to relax the diaphragm if they bend their knees, placing their feet flat on the floor. Relax completely, especially the stomach and abdomen. Now, breathe deeply and slowly, concentrating on the diaphragm, and feeling your stomach rise as you inhale and fall as you exhale. Relax the abdominal muscles more and more completely, using the diaphragm, and not the stomach muscles, to create the rise and fall of the abdomen.

After a few minutes practice on the floor you can sit in a cross-legged position and continue diaphragmatic breathing. It helps to close your eyes and concentrate on relaxing the stomach, allowing it to swell outward and relax back inward. Once you know how to breathe correctly you can practice diaphragmatic breathing wherever you are. It may take a couple of weeks to re-train yourself but you will find the results worth the effort. Be sure to check to see that you are breathing diaphragmatically as you begin your meditations.
