Insightful or mindfulness meditation is one form of meditation which is very effective in dealing with the problems and difficult situations of life.
It is a excellent tool that can be use to solve your problems, bring about changes in your awareness, improve your spirituality and lower any stress you might be experiencing. This is often considered by many people as a miraculous technique.
Sometimes it is very hard for some of us to handle stressful situations. So every individual should learn how to become aware of them and accept that they exist so they can deal with them successfully.
Negative Emotions Affects The Mind
It is a fact that frustrations, stress, disappointments, anger, and other related negative emotions affects the mind and body adversely, and that any negative actions and emotions have to be handled effectively, and any set backs must be truly accepted in order to eliminate these things from your life. Or at least in order to help you deal with them better.
Insightful meditation is like a medicine that helps people in dealing with negative situations and emotion in a manner that is most effective to them.
This meditation allows or requires individuals to become aware of their environment. To become more sensitive in perceiving each moment.
Thus, they prefer to acknowledge situations that are stressful rather than hiding from them. If you become aware of the internal thoughts of your mind with, then you can learn to accept difficult circumstances without too much resistance.
Practicing this meditation trains your mind how to achieve a tranquil state without being affected by external forces. The mind is aided in developing the needed strength to obtain this peacefulness.
Today, the world around you is so busy, that you may feel there is no time for meditating. But remember that wherever you are, it is your choice to become still or not. Set specific times and spaces where you can do this meditation where no one can disturb you.
Start Practicing Insightful Meditation
Sit in an upright position with your legs crossed. Focus on your breathing or something other physical or mental processes that can help you to become aware of your present inner state and thought patterns.
Your breathing is very important. Concentrate on the air that passes down from your nostrils, to your air passages, and to your lungs, and vice versa when you breathe out. Focusing on your breath can accomplish two things. Your concentration is slowly shifted away from the problems in your mind as well as it brings your focus to God.
Practicing this meditation lets you concentrate on your actions, thoughts, and present situation non-judgmentally. It doesn’t encourage you to evaluate or think about your past actions.
Or take your thoughts on the uncertainty of the future. It trains and helps your mind not to be distracted by external disturbances, concentrate your thoughts, and relax your mind.
Formal And Informal Techniques
Formal insightful meditation incorporates yoga. In this way, you can be aware and control your breathing patterns in connection with particular body movements.
When you take every life’s experience with pleasure and enjoyment, then you are using an informal insightful meditation.
The strategy used in this particular meditation is insight or introspection, wherein you get clear pictures of your inner states and thoughts, achieve thought concentration, and train your mind in perceiving situations and things more effectively. So, you can now handle your problems more effectively, and live a better and healthy life.
I find that I get excellent results by combining this meditation with numbers meditation. In fact, I begin with numbers which then leads into insightfulness.
