Empowered You

by Ljerka S. Teacher
This was originally written by Chris Oseko, but I thought you might be interested.
Meditation generally involves where one consciously discounts wandering thoughts and fantasies, and calming and focusing the mind, while controlling the breath, and sensory awareness.There is one meditation anyone can do, and by doing it, one's life force itself comes under control; ones senses turn off, and the mind becomes quiet. Then the peace and realization that comes from true meditation comes to the practitioner.
What is the name of this meditation, and how is it done? Even spoken over and over, the syllables merge, so one is saying Sohamsoham, I am He, He am He.It is a prayer and a meditation mantra with spiritually charged word or series of words used a meditation theme.A person feels close ones intuition, and as if the world of material things is less important due to its overbearing insignificance when compared to the bliss one feels in meditation.Sit up straight with your spine in a line, do not slouch.

You must be comfortable, so sit on a chair or on the floor with a soft mat or carpet underneath you.When you feel completely relaxed, command your mind to be silent, your emotions to be still, keeping your body as relaxed as possible.As you do this meditation, actually imagine the air entering your nose and travelling all the way down into your lungs. This is one So.

As you exhale, you can imagine the air travelling out of the lungs, up to the nose and out of your body. This is one Ham.Beginners in this meditation usually silently say the word So with each inhalation and the word Ham with each exhalation. Continue in this way, as long as you are comfortable, but no less than 5 minutes, and no longer than 20 minutes until the meditation feels natural to go longer.
