Keys to a successful spiritual meditation
Chances are, you’re visiting zero in on features that you’d wish to change about yourself – like almost everyone else who commits to self-knowledge. To succeed in spiritual meditation, admitting and accepting who you’re is the first step. This would help you to befriend yourself.
Give up the grudges you’ve been holding:
It will be extremely difficult to forgive some who has hurt you or someone you care about. But as your meditation practice progresses, you’ll realize that holding on to grudges is not going to help you in anyway but will only cause you pain. Plus, the other person is not going to be affected because of your grudge. The earlier you forgive, the quicker you’ll release this pain and advance.
Focus your spiritual aspirations on others:
True spirituality focuses on benefitting others, but to try and do this one has to start it with self, first. gazing our own minds, we learn to simply accept who we are with tenderness and benevolence. we are able to then extend this tenderness and benevolence to others. As we continue our meditation practice, we can realize that the more we concentrate on others, the less we tend to fret about our own desires and frustrations.
Bring mindfulness into your faith:
Many people find that practicing their faith may be a great comfort and a wonderful thanks to feed their spirit. They find a source of well-being or solace in their meditation center or place of worship, or even whilst practicing with other like-minded people. And when religious practices maintain the core spiritual foundations of compassion, sincerity, and connection, they will cause experiences of spiritual awakening that transcends the routine.
Adapt your mind to new possibilities:
While we are all different in some ways, all living creatures are connected by certain universal needs and experiences. From the littlest insect to the mightiest ruler, we all look to secure well-being and avoid suffering. Besides, none people could possibly exist without others. Guided spiritual meditation can expose us to the reality of our interrelation and help us become cognizant of our individual importance.
The oft-repeated phrase “be yourself” encourages you to prevent pretending you’re someone or something you’re not for the sake of pleasing others or covering up your shortcomings. Sadly, many of us have grown so conversant in leading make-believe lives that they don’t have a clue the way to be authentic, that is, to easily be themselves.
