Need and importance of meditation in Reiki
We have been telling people the importance of meditation in Reiki. Some feel like the food of Reiki is meditation and that it helps in better and much powerful healings. As per my view too, any person should meditate to the number of minutes by his age. Like if any person’s age is of 24 years, so he should meditate for minimum of 24 minutes.
See, many times, when someone’s life is over, we hear people talking that the particular person might be having those number of breath. Have we ever tried to think over the reason behind it? Do we know how to meditate?
First of all, we must here explain the procedure and a way of starting meditation, than only we will be understanding other things. Also place any alarm clock to hit alarm after sometime, so that you can get awake from your meditation, if there is no one else to help you. Now, to start with, we must switch off our all mobile phones, TV, or any Audio or Video device, which could be disturbing. We all must have a light and comfortable dress. We should avoid any too tight or uncomfortable dress. Closed lights and closed room is preferable, as we need nothing to disturb us while in meditation. We can play a light music in the room, like any spiritual or can also play some meditation music. Lightening of some candle and spraying some fragrance will add good to it.
Now after all set up, we must choose our option of sitting, lying or any position, which is suitable for us for meditation. After this, we should take our best position to relax, and close our eyes. Listening to music, and feeling the perfume and candle light or any dim light present in room, we should try to feel light and relaxed. Now, we should try to concentrate on our breath and try to breath slowly. We should try to take longer time to inhale and exhale than normal time. Now, we should try to count the breath and pay attention to music as well. Or it will be much better, if we also try to visualize our breath and see till where we feel the breath air.
After sometime, we wont remember what we were doing and where we were. We only get awake when we are woken up by any alarm or someone else. If you try to check, your breath must have reduced to just nostrils that time, which means that during meditation, either we do not breath or even if we do, it is very less. So, in one way, we can also say that meditation helps us reducing breathing process, and increase our life span. The stage of meditation in this stage is also called our Alpha stage.
However, with time, we can do better meditation and can increase the meditation duration. With time, we can do different kind of meditations, like Chakra meditation, past life regression, future life progression and some more. We can also do some more intense meditations with time. here, I will try to keep giving you more information on other kind of meditation we can do, so just keep coming and help me spread the light.
