|3 Amazing Meditation Techniques Every Beginner Should Try Self Help Articles | July 30 , 2011
Meditation is a very powerful method to unravel your true potential but it needs regular practice and patience to see the results. These techniques will serve you to make a good start.
Meditation is the process of expanding your awareness. Meditation is the process of silencing your thoughts and getting in touch with the deepest part of yourself, your source. Meditation makes you powerful, happy, and eventually enlightened.
The best time to meditate is in the morning after you have taken a shower. The next best time to meditate is early in the evening around sunset. When you sit down to meditate you should listen to music that helps you relax. The music of Zazen, Kitaro , or Joaquin Lievano is highly recommended.
Do yourself a favor and try following 3 techniques
FOCUSING ON BREATHING
Just allow your body to breathe naturally, and focus your attention wherever you feel the sensation of the breath in your body. It can be your abdominal, nostrils or chest. When you are inhaling be aware, be conscious that you are inhaling; when you are exhaling just know, and be aware that you are exhaling. It is quite natural that thoughts will arise while witnessing the breath - don't try to fight with thoughts , don't try to control your thoughts.
Just allow thoughts to arise - thoughts of the past, thoughts of the future - and see how far you can simply observe these thoughts, just thoughts arising and passing away, as if these thoughts do not belong to you, as though you were observing another person's thoughts. This is called being outsider in your inner realm.
After some practice , you can do the same in regard to any emotion that is arising in you. Whatever emotion is arising - sadness, anxiety, fear, joy - do not want it to stay in your mind, and also do not want it to go away , just be at one with that emotion as a non-attached witness.
This meditation is about how far you can gently soften towards yourself, accepting yourself as you are, without any notion of what you should become.
Learn to accept yourself as you are, and learn to accept others as they are, without an image of how you or they should be. Keep this thought in mind for everyone , every time: May all beings be well and happy; may all beings overcome the suffering that they create themselves.
?If you are serious about meditation, you should start by meditating 15 minutes twice a day, then increase that time to 30 minutes, then 45 minutes, and eventually 1 hour twice a day. You should also meditate with a teacher of meditation as often as you can.
When designing your new conservatory itís easy to overlook the question of how you will heat it after itís built. Yet this consideration should be among the first on your checklist as you go through your requirements with your conservatory builder. In fact , a reputable builder will ask you what your plans are for heating, because as construction progresses your options will become more and more limited. This article takes a brief look at the question of underfloor heating and if you do decide on this method then it must be included in the initial design specifications Ė certainly ahead of any choice of the actual flooring to be fitted.
Underfloor heating is a particularly efficient option for a conservatory for a number of reasons.
Firstly, heat rises.
Secondly, if your conservatory is only to be used occasionally in the colder months then it is a means by which to heat it only as and when you need it. This is because many conservatories are isolated from the rest of the home in terms of heating: they are literally íbolted oní to the existing property, so that the exterior walls , windows and door remain the same (retaining the same insulation as before). If the conservatory is not used very much in colder weather then it makes sense to take advantage of this isolation from the heating system and give the conservatory its own separate heating method.
Thirdly, many homes are fitted with boilers that only have the capacity to efficiently heat the number of rooms that the home had when the boiler was fitted. A conservatory can place a burden on such a system that will reduce the heating efficiency of the entire home, meaning that in the coldest weather it will never feel quite warm enough. Boilers running at full stretch will also cost more.
Finally, if your boiler does have spare capacity or you plan to upgrade your boiler then certain underfloor heating systems can easily be incorporated into your current radiator circuit. Some suppliers offer affordable special-packs that are designed specifically for conservatory installation.
Types of Underfloor Heating
Systems that are incorporated into an existing radiator circuit are made up of pipes that run under the floor. The most modern versions do not require an additional pump nor wiring, but they do have a minimum thickness for the flooring (usually around 75mm) , and the special packs for conservatories are often limited to floor areas of less than 15 square metres. The easiest way to think of these systems is to see it as a radiator running underneath the floor, with the same control and demands that this would have on your current radiator circuit. Just like most radiators, you would be able to turn off this heating to the conservatory and if it is isolated as described above then you would not lose any more heat from your home than you did before (so long as the doors and windows are closed).
