How to do This Meditation
Ready to get started with meditation for a positive mind? You only need 11 minutes to dedicate to this practice and you can try it as a beginner. Here’s how to do it.
Start by sitting with your spine straight in any position that suits you. Curl your little finger and the ring finger in toward your palm on both hands. Use your thumbs to hold them in place. Your palms should be facing forward.
Your other two fingers on each hand should be straight up. Bring your elbows to your sides and move your hands up near your shoulders. Your forearms and hands should be at a 30-degree angle up from your elbow. Place the elbows and shoulders back.
Close your eyes and roll them upward to bring the focus to your Third Eye. This is the area slightly below your brow, between your eyebrows and the top of your nose.
Ensure that you are breathing slowly and steadily.
Mentally start vibrating on the ‘Saa Taa Naa Maa’ mantra. You should stay in rhythm and keep a steady pace. The word ‘Saa’ means infinity, ‘Taa’ is life ‘Naa’ is death, and ‘Maa’ is rebirth. Put simply, the mantra is the cycle of life.
When you repeat the mantra, the underlying meaning is ‘I meditate on Truth, Truth that I am’. You should start to feel mentally clear and refreshed when you are meditating.
Practice for 11 minutes. However, as you progress, you can meditate for up to 62 minutes.
When you are ready to bring your meditation for a positive mind to an end, breath in deeply and out three times. You should also open and close the fists several times. Finally, relax and come out of the pose.
Beginner’s Tip: You can repeat this meditation for 40 consecutive days. When you are undertaking it, you should aim to speak only the truth and eat light meals.
