When we meditate, we may choose to focus on a variety of different meditation objects – affirmations, mantra, visualisations etc etc
So how do we decide which meditation practice to use?
We need to know why we are meditating. If our goal is relaxation, focusing on our body sensations and our breathing allows us to observe signs of relaxation as they occur, creating a positive feedback loop that leads to deeper relaxation.
Meditation and the Body
We experience the world through our senses, but when we are lost in thought we may miss the signals that our body is trying to send us. By switching from thinking mode to sensing mode and bringing high quality attention to your own body, you can learn to relax at will and improve your capacity to experience life to the fullest.
Meditation and the Breath
Our breathing provides us with an instant readout of how tense or relaxed we are in any given moment. This biofeedback allows us to monitor how we are feeling and determine what to do in response. For example, if we are able to notice that we are reacting to a stressful situation by tightening and forcing our breathing, then we can respond by encouraging our breathing to soften and loosen.
