What are the Best Meditation Steps?
Article by Bhakta David
Many people often wonder about how to best meditate and after that they want to know about the best meditation steps. The answer to this question is quite complex because there are many forms, and each one has different steps to follow. Depending on the personality of the individual, one style or practice may suite some better than others. This article will shed some light on different forms of meditation and the steps that should be followed for successful practice.
The first style that I will discuss is called Bhakti yoga. The object of this form of meditation is truly the essence of all yoga which is oneness with the Supreme. Yoga means union and this is achieved by concentration, mantra, service and devotion. This style can be quite difficult to follow for many reasons. The steps are not the easiest for most people in our modern society.
The steps include regulative principles which are as follows: No intoxication, no gambling, no elicit sex, and no meat eating at all. This form of spirituality fosters a mind state where one can get the highest cosmic and karmic benefits. Again, the steps mentioned are not the easiest for most to follow. My favorite part of this kind of practice is that it focuses on mantra an God, Vishnu, who is the creator, maintainer and destroyer.
Chakra meditation is a totally different style. It relates closely with kundalini yoga and the goal is to optimize the functioning of the chakras. The best meditation steps for this kind of energy work varies depending on what one’s metaphysical preferences are. For example, some people are more easily able to visualize than others. So they can use that as the main part of their chakra work. Others prefer to work with something more tangible like a gemstone or a special kind of herb or oil that stimulates the energy center.
The most popular style is passive. It does not involve any kind of special techniques or anything like that. The best meditation steps for the passive style is to just basically sit and do nothing at all. First close your eyes, sit on the ground with the legs crossed while breathing deeply. As one is doing this, many thoughts will naturally enter into the mind.
True meditation happens when we ponder or ‘ruminate’ on those thoughts that enter into our mind. Our conscious control over the thoughts feeds the subconscious mind with positive thought vibrations. This is indeed a powerful and pragmatic form of meditation.
Finally, I will briefly discuss how to work with gemstones. Blue Kyanite is a quite good stone to begin meditating with. For all who have trouble entering into the meditative mind state, blue kyanite is a true gem, as it relaxes, soothes and induces calm. The best meditation steps for working with gemstones involves focusing on what your goal is for the session. Secondly, choose the chakra that most closely relates to that objective. After that just lay down and place the gemstone over the energy center while falling deeper and deeper into relaxation. Finally, the state of deep trance will naturally happen. This is the mind state where people are able to astral project, perform remote viewing, distant healing, and many other spectacular psychic experiences.
