How To Explore Your Mind To See Your True Self https://www.thedailymeditation.com/how-to-explore-your-mind-to-see-your-true-self
https://www.thedailymeditation.com/?p=97859
<p>If you want to see the inner truth of your own being, you need to know how to explore your mind.&nbsp;</p><p>The best way to explore your mind is with meditation.&nbsp;&nbsp;And at first, that might sound a little backwards….&nbsp;Years ago, when I was a wide-eyed philosophy student, there was a conversation after class about meditation. Many of the students there were still reeling from the day’s lecture in Philosophy of the Mind.&nbsp;One student was questioning if the practice of meditation had any value to him. He claimed that meditation was merely “clearing the mind,” or “thinking about nothing”. And this can be true. You certainly can use meditation to clear and quieten your mind.&nbsp;</p><p>Meditation is also about learning how to explore your mind too though, as one student said.&nbsp;&nbsp;I distinctly remember our professor smirking and sipping his coffee as we sharpened our swords, but dulled our understanding.&nbsp;Because in truth, meditation is about both. It’s about clearing the mind. But it is also the best way how to explore your mind.&nbsp;</p><p>That lecture session happened almost ten years ago. But the argument continues today. I still hear the same debates and misconceptions. After studying the philosophies, I spent even more time applying what I read from various sources.&nbsp;</p><p>One thing is for sure, when it comes to exploring your mind vs clearing it; meditation is not about either/or. It’s about both. Because if you want to explore your mind, you first have to clear it.&nbsp;</p><p>Here is how to clear your mind <em>and</em> how to explore your mind at the same time.&nbsp;</p><div class=”theda-lesson-text” id=”theda-2002130290″><a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/online-lesson?utm_source=TDM&amp;utm_medium=TopPicAd”><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-98342 lazyload” src=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Book-an-online-meditation-lesson-1.jpg” alt=”Book an online meditation lesson (1)” width=”750″ height=”300″><noscript><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-98342 lazyload” src=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Book-an-online-meditation-lesson-1.jpg” alt=”Book an online meditation lesson (1)” width=”750″ height=”300″></noscript></a> </div><h2>5 Ways How To Explore Your Mind With Meditation</h2><h3>1: Open Monitoring</h3><p>The best way to start to explore your mind is with open-minitoring meditation. This will calm your mind and clear it so you can start to see within (for more on this, read my guide to <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/difference-focused-attention-open-awareness-effortless-presence”>&nbsp;open-awareness, focused attention and effortless presence</a>).</p><p>One misconception about clearing the mind is that it requires you to avoid your thoughts. This couldn’t be further from the truth. If you try to avoid thinking you will probably actually start to think even more. Instead, you should try to focus on the present moment; through open-monitoring meditation.</p><p>To do this, simply begin to meditate as you would any other time, but be sure to keep your breathing mindful. As you feel your body relax, and your mind becoming calm, begin to observe your thoughts and the external stimuli around you. Whether you’re distracted by a<br>sound, smell, the wind blowing against you, or anything else, notice that distraction without analysis or judgement.</p><p>After a while, you’ll notice the external stimuli is less distracting because you’ve become more accepting of it. The goal is to reach a point where you can accept the present moment for what it is; allowing your mind to clear itself.</p><p>If you’re in public, and would like to remain safe while doing a meditation – use the Lion’s Prayer technique (eyes half open, half closed to remain aware of your surroundings).</p><h3>2: Focus Your Attention</h3><p>Now that the mind is clear we can begin to focus. We do this with <em>focused attention meditation</em>, the best form of which is <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/samatha-meditation-technique”>Samatha meditation technique.</a></p><p>This is where you focus all your attention on one object; be it your breath, a mantra, part of your body, etc.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>To do this, decide on a specific object before you start meditating. Once you begin, use the object almost as a pole to tether your thoughts to. Certain thoughts or sounds may arise, but allow your thoughts to circle back to the object you are tethered to.</p><p>After a while, you will notice the external distractions are reduced and you can clear your mind. More importantly, it will become easier to understand why those unwanted thoughts seem to “pop up” or “pass by” without our control. This level of focus makes it easier to influence your thoughts, so don’t be afraid to use this technique to explore your mind as well.</p><h3>3: Explore Your Mind With Vipassana</h3><p>Now we can get to really exploring the mind.</p><p>When we talk about “exploring the mind”, what we are really meaning is to examine the different psychological pehnomen like thoughts and feelings, and to investigate the way we think and feel about certain things.</p><p>To do this, we <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/vipassana”>practise Vipassana meditation</a> but with a twist.</p><p>When we normally do Vipassana we simply focus on the breath and then label the thoughts and feelings that arise. This is a good elementary way of exploring the mind. It reveals to us how thoughts and feelings rise and fall. You get to learn about the nature of mental phenomena—which is entirely why Buddha taught this technique in the first place.</p><p>You can take this further.</p><p>While you are practising Vipassana, very gently bring to mind certain the elements of your life you would like to explore. For instance, let’s say you want to explore mental phenomena related to your career To do this, continue meditating on the breath and labelling thoughts and feelings as you usually would. Now very gently bring to mind a mental image of work. You should do this gently enough that you maintain focus without getting distracted. Once you bring up this thought, observe associations that occur in your mind. When you think about your career (or whatever subject you’re thinking of), what other associations come up? &nbsp;Observing these things will show you the network of thoughts in your mind, and how your mind associates one thought with others. You’ll also notice the types of feelings that your mind associate with work. Whatever topic you bring to mind, observe how your mind reacts. There will be a network of psychological associations that reveal to you how the pieces of your life come together in your mind. You can then <em>change these </em>associations if you like, which will have a profound affect on the way you perceive whatever subject you are thining about.</p><h3>4: Visualize</h3><p>Visualizations are simply mental images that we create. People use visualizations for a variety of reasons, but what they all have in common is the connection between the mind and body. This is because our minds have trouble telling the difference between remembering and imagining. [<a href=”https://healthland.time.com/2011/10/05/reality-check-why-some-brains-cant-tell-real-from-imagined/”>1</a>]</p><p>That simple fact allows visualizations to have powerful effects on our day to day lives. And indeed, science proves that visualizations can be highly effective.</p><p>You can use it as a tool to achieve your goals, become more spiritual or creative, and even learn faster! To do this, you’ll simply need to reach a meditative state via the methods we looks at above, and begin to envision yourself attaining your goal.</p><p>If you are a career-driven person, you may want to visualize yourself working at your dream job, meeting influential figures, or signing that big contract. Maybe you’re an athlete: visualize yourself playing well against your opponents, making plays, and winning the match. If you’re seeking answers spiritually, you could visualize a scenario that may bring answers out of you or envision a trusted guru and speak with them. The possibilities are endless!</p><p>If any of this seems silly or ineffective to you, please understand, you’re not alone.</p><p>I once believed that visualization was pointless as well, until I realized it wasn’t just about one’s belief in it. Studies from the National Library of Medicine and other sources have proven the effects of visualizations.</p><p>If you’d like to<a href=”https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3815616/”> read about the science&nbsp;</a>behind visualization and how it can make us more productive, you can learn more by clicking the previous links.</p><h3>5: <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/chakra-meditation”>Chakra Meditation</a></h3><p>Chakra meditation is one of the <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/yoga-meditation-techniques-2″>top 10 meditations used in yoga.</a>&nbsp;</p><p>Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years by many cultures.</p><p>One thing that people have seemed to have forgotten, though, is that Yoga isn’t just about the physical body. Along with the health benefits of yoga, are the techniques that allow you to explore the causal relationship between the mind, body, and spirit.</p><p>Chakras are centers of energy, found in our spiritual bodies. To some, they are more of a concept and tool used for spiritual growth. Chakra meditations allow you to analyze your spiritual health, better yourself morally, and explore your mind. Either way you choose<br>to look at chakras, there is something to be learned from the experience.</p><h3><strong>Explore your mind by examining each of your chakras</strong> <strong>with meditation</strong>.</h3><p>Each chakra is in a specific location and corresponds with specific aspects of life. When we feel like these aspects of life are in order, the corresponding chakra is a clean, bright, vibrant color. When these aspects of life are out of order, we may see the chakra as dirty, dull, and lacking energy.</p><p>By meditating on each chakra, you can identify which parts of your life are in a negative condition – then improve your life. Essentially, they are like the organs of your<br>spiritual body. And chakra meditations allow you to examine them so you can maintain your mental and spiritual health.</p><p>And that is how to explore your mind with meditation. While you’re at it, you might like to challenge your own mind by asking yourself some hard-hitting <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/self-reflection-questions”>self reflection questions</a>.</p><p>Leave a comment and <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/how-to-explore-your-mind-to-see-your-true-self#subscribe”>remember to subscribe </a>.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p class=”dpsp-share-text “>Share This Now:</p><p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p> Mon, 29 Mar 2021 16:33:06 +0000 Paul Harrison

How To Create And Use Affirmations For Meditation https://www.thedailymeditation.com/how-to-create-and-use-affirmations-for-meditation
https://www.thedailymeditation.com/?p=96660
<p>In this guide, we’ll be looking at how to create and use affirmations for meditation.</p><p>When I was in my early twenties and starting to learn about spirituality, I was very keen on learning affirmations. Affirmations, which are simple phrases, mantras, or recitations, can help you to <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/5-positivity-techniques-boosted-happiness-big-time”>think positively</a>, <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/negative-thoughts-2″>to overcome negative thought</a>s, and to change your beliefs.</p><p>Affirmations are an easy way to begin your development, and they can be highly effective.</p><p>If you’ve heard about affirmations, you might have read a view self-help and self-improvement books, like those of Norman Vincent Peale (The Power of Positive Thinking) and Louise Hay (Trust Life).</p><p><a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/the-top-ten-self-help-and-self-improvement-gurus”>Self help books</a> state that affirmations can help you to be happy, overcome anxiety, overcome depression, sleep better, and more. And there is some scientific evidence that affirmations work [Christopher Cascio and Emily Falk, University of Michigan and UCLA,&nbsp; Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience journal, <a href=”https://www.asc.upenn.edu/news-events/news/study-reveals-neural-mechanics-self-affirmation”>1</a>].</p><p>However, there is one huge problem with affirmations: they don’t work unless you use them properly.</p><p>To make your affirmations work, you first need to silence your mind.</p><p>If your mind is too noisy when you recite affirmations, the affirmation will not be effective.</p><p>This is why it’s best to combine affirmations and meditation. Meditation clears your mind, so that affirmations can have a more positive effect.</p><p>As well as entering the right mental space before using affirmations, you also need to create affirmations that actually work in the first place. If you don’t recite the right affirmations, you could experience unwanted results.</p><p>Let me show you how to create affirmations that actually work, and how to combine affirmations and meditation.</p><div class=”theda-lesson-text” id=”theda-1178847156″><a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/online-lesson?utm_source=TDM&amp;utm_medium=TopPicAd”><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-98342 lazyload” src=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Book-an-online-meditation-lesson-1.jpg” alt=”Book an online meditation lesson (1)” width=”750″ height=”300″><noscript><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-98342 lazyload” src=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Book-an-online-meditation-lesson-1.jpg” alt=”Book an online meditation lesson (1)” width=”750″ height=”300″></noscript></a> </div><h2>How To Create Affirmations That Actually Work For Your Meditation Practice</h2><p>Before we start reciting affirmations and meditating, we first need to know how to create affirmations that actually work. This has a lot to do with <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/subconscious-mind-power-techniques-how-to-train-your-brain”>communicating with your subconscious mind.</a></p><p>We use affirmations to send message to the subconscious mind, which then goes about turning your commands into actions.</p><p>Brian Tracy [Canadian-American motivational public speaker and self-development author], “Your subconscious mind is subjective. It does not think or reason independently; it merely obeys the commands it receives from your conscious mind.”</p><p>That’s why we need to send accurate commands to the subconscious. And that is the purpose of affirmations.</p><p>Let’s look at how to create affirmations that work, and then how to combine affirmations with meditation.</p><h2>How to create affirmations that actually work—The 5 Core Concepts</h2><p>There are five core concepts that go into creating an affirmation that actually works:</p><ol><li>Create a positive goal</li><li>State that goal is a positive, actionable way</li><li>Make it visual (so when we recite the affirmation we envision ourselves taking action)</li><li>Use the present tense (so that we are focused on <em>now</em>)</li><li>Include positive emotions (happiness, confidence, and so on).</li></ol><p><strong>Examples of Affirmations that work</strong></p><p><strong>1: For exercise motivation: “I am feeling good, sweating at the gym.” </strong></p><p>Notice how this affirmation follows the five core concepts</p><ol><li>The affirmation states the goal of exercising at the gym</li><li>The goal is stated in the present tense</li><li>The affirmation includes positive feelings (“<em>I am feeling good…</em>”)</li><li>There’s a visual aspect to the affirmation too, “sweating at the gym”,</li><li>The idea of sweating is also actionable.</li></ol><p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p><p><strong>2: Affirmation for self love: “I am sending myself love and compassion.”</strong></p><p>Again, notice how this affirmation includes the five core concepts.</p><ol><li>It includes a positive goal (cultivating self-love).</li><li>The goal is stated in an actionable way (“I am <em>sending </em>myself love and compassion”)</li><li>There’s a visual aspect because we can imagine ourselves being kind and self-compassionate.</li><li>It is stated in the present tense (“I <em><u>am</u></em><u>…</u>”)</li><li>It includes the positive feelings of love and compassion</li></ol><p><strong>3: Affirmation for confidence: “I am standing tall and feeling strong.”</strong></p><ul><li>Here’s how this final affirmation uses the five core concepts:</li></ul><ol><li>1: It includes a goal (feeling strong)</li><li>It is actionable—it makes us want to actually physically stand tall, which is important for our goal of confidence</li><li>It’s visual because we can imagine ourselves standing tall</li><li>It’s stated in the present tense (“I <u>am</u>”)</li><li>It includes the feeling of inner strength</li></ol><h2>Combining Affirmations And Meditation</h2><p>Now you know how to create affirmations that actually work. Next you need to prepare your mind for the affirmation. This is precisely why we combine affirmations and meditation. We calm the mind first, then use the positive affirmation to create changes.</p><p>When you’re using affirmations with meditation you need to get in the right mindset, just as you do with other forms of meditation.</p><p>Follow these simple steps for an effective affirmation-meditation.</p><ol><li>Start by creating an affirmation that actually works. You can do that with the guide above. Memorise this affirmation so you can recite the affirmation while meditating.</li><li>Begin by taking the correct meditation posture, either sitting or kneeling. Make sure you are comfortable and that your spine is in good alignment. You can tuck your chin down a little to lightly elongate your neck. Gently close your eyes. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.</li><li>Start by taking at least 25 mindful breaths. This will calm your mind and stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system so that you are more relaxed. It will also help to harmonise the brain hemispheres so your creative side and logical side are balance. Plus it will reduce negative thinking.</li><li>Begin to recite the words of your affirmation slowly. On your in breath, remain silent and simply focus on your breathing. When you exhale, recite the words of your affirmation slowly, so that affirmation lasts for one exhalation. This creates harmony between your breathing-meditation and affirmation.</li><li>Continue to recite your affirmation while meditating. At times you will notice that certain thoughts and visuals come to mind. For instance, if you are using this meditation and affirmation to workout, you might see an image of yourself exercising at the gym. Let this image come to your mind and see it clearly. In other words, visualize your goal. This will make the affirmation more effective.</li><li>Sometimes you will experience negative thoughts. For instance, if you’re using this affirmation and meditation to lose weight, you might think, “I’ll never get in shape.” You want to deal with these negative thoughts like you would in mindfulness and Vipassana (Buddhist Insight Meditation). To do this, simply let the thought come and go, and remind yourself that it is nothing more than a thought.</li><li>Continue to meditate on the affirmation for twenty minutes, or for one full mala (108 breaths).</li><li>Open your eyes slowly and continue with your day.</li></ol><p>By combining affirmations and meditation in this way, you make the affirmation much more effective. Meditation silences your mind and reduces negative thinking, which allows you to focus on the affirmation.</p><p>I would love to know how you feel after this affirmation-meditation. Write a comment below. And if you would like to get much more out of meditation, <a href=”https://www.thedailymeditation.com/online-lesson”>book an online meditation lesson with me.</a></p><p class=”dpsp-share-text “>Share This Now:</p><p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p> Fri, 26 Feb 2021 21:52:15 +0000 Paul Harrison
