Ommmmm: 7 Other Ways to Meditate
Meditation doesn't have to look like you sitting very tall in lotus posture with hands in chin mudra. Meditation can be indigenous to YOU. Explore some of the following methods and discover your own.
- Take quiet walks in nature.
- Dance, letting the music take you.
- Dig in the garden.
- Sweep the floors.
- Gaze into a candle or fire flame.
- Practice yoga, qi gong or tai chi.
With your focus on the sound of crickets singing or on the profound metaphor of sweeping away the dirt in your life, Divine messages will more easily slip into your consciousness. With practice, your method of meditation will become your own indigenous asana (or manner of entering into it).
