Meditating on silence
When you meditate on silence you liberate your mind and spirit. Water is the purest and most beautiful thing in the world (well, except Famke Jansen, obviously).
Water is free flowing, pure, and true. It’s the most perfect representation of life itself. And that is why you should meditate on it.
Now, I know that lots of our readers are Zen-setationalists who are know a lot about meditation. If that’s you, the meditation technique I’m about to show you is similar to Bhakti meditation. And if you are absolutely brand new to meditation then I’ll simply say that this is a meditation technique that makes you more like water (metaphorically, obviously). It will make you free in life, and totally liberated, like the stream that flows down the mountain and gallops off through the forest.
So, as I mentioned, this is a meditation technique. And if you are new to meditation, you will first want to read these important articles:
And meditating on silence is also one of the simplest meditation techniques for beginners .
I’m sure you’ve experienced those times when you really need to just be alone for a little bit and to unwind. At those times, what you really need is silence. Your mind is full up of noise. Maybe it’s noise from work, noise from an argument—whatever. Your mind is full up. It needs to unwind.
In these situations, silence is your best friend.
So, how do you meditate on silence?
How to create real change in your life just by meditating on silence.
- Obviously, if you’re going to meditate on silence you first need to find a silent spot. That can be hard from time to time! If you’re in a big city as I am, finding a silent spot isn’t easy. You could use ear plugs, but I don’t recommend that. The best bet is to just find the quietest room. And if the quietest room isn’t quiet enough, put a tap on. The sound of water helps you to relax and is a good substitute for silence.
- Next up, adopt the right posture. You should be sitting comfortably (in lotus position preferably—i.e legs folded) with your spine straight and relaxed. There are some great meditation cushions that can make this more comfortable for you.
- Close your eyes and focus your mind on your breathing for a couple of minutes, just to begin to unwind. Don’t worry if you are occasionally distracted by thoughts, that’s normal, just try to focus on your breath to the best of your ability.
- Now listen to silence. Focus your mind on the silence. Allow your mind to become one with the silence.
- You should feel as though your body is becoming lighter, your muscles relaxing and your mind unwinding.
- Continue to focus on silence for at least ten minutes. The more you focus the more you will relax.
- Allow silence to take hold of you and allow yourself to completely unwind.
- Ahhhhhh, now that’s soothing!
