Hai, this is Micky. I'm here to share my little secret that will help you to relax easily and refresh yourself in your day-to-days activities. I'm not a guru or a teacher, but a benefited person of what I ought to share with you. Ok, here I start. Many things in our life make us tired, lazy, irritated, unhappy and so on. These things will drive-out our energy and leave us empty. This I'm sharing with you is a simple method of meditation. By practicing this you can recharge yourself and be active always. Just sit relaxed and comfortable on floor or possibly in a chair. Just be relaxed. Close you eyes slowly, and make yourself comfortable. Now concentrate on your breathing over the nostril. You can feel the air going in and out through the nostril. While practicing this your mind and body will completely become relaxed. If you feel sleepy, it is a indication that you need a good sleep. Be in peace and silence, that you can concentrate more on your breathing. Do not think about any thing or even not think that you are Meditating.
The following article deals with the "counting of breaths" meditation in Soto Zen. The first thing that you should understand about Zen meditation is that there is no "bad" meditation period. Struggle is good. When thoughts start flowing in and you think you are going to loose your mind, that is when the battle begins! Usually when you are taken in by extraneous thoughts you should simply just go back to your counting. If it seems to be extra difficult, then I would recommend the following: Clearing the Mind Take a moment to relax. Close your eyes and try to turn your eyeballs backwards as if you are attempting to look backwards. Do this for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, relax your eyes forward again and resume your counting. You may find that you have to do this a couple of time before it works. This may sound strange but it will work. Kyosaku Stick If you are sitting with a group or "sangha" that utilizes a monitor, the kyosaku stick is your best friend. Many groups allow you to raise your hand to ask for the kyosaku stick.
Meditation is making a strong comeback in today's world. Stressed out business people and all sorts of different groups have found this old technique for its many benefits. Meditation will help restore your energy, rejuvenating your body and leave you feeling calm and ready to face the rest of the day. There have also been claims that meditation is a good way to cut down on the sleep you need. Meditation is different then sleep. Its a different kind of deeper relaxation. During meditation, the mind is able to rest more intensively and concentrated, than it is with sleep. Meditation will help calm the mind, relax the body and refocus the energy you already have. Although meditation cannot replace sleep, it can help to reduce the amount we need. The benefits of meditation are boundless, but some include: higher energy levels, better concentration throughout your daily tasks and work times, and reduced stress levels. Meditation is one of the best stress reducers and is even used in hospitals for that purpose.
Manifesting dreams requires visualizing. Visualizing requires mental focus. Meditation can be a perfect platform for powerful manifesting. But, meditation is often overlooked because most people think that you have to have an empty mind, sit in the lotus position, or be a Zen guru! No wonder it's overlooked! The reality is that meditation, any form of meditation, can help you access deeper levels of awareness. Which leads to manifesting your dreams, when combined with focused visualization. No, you do not have to have an empty mind for it to work. No, you do not have to sit in the lotus position. No, you need not be a guru for it to work for you. Meditation itself is not a goal or an achievable process. It's an experience. And each of us have a unique experience during meditation. No meditative experience can be wrong or right. Some people use meditative music to assist with the experience. Again, each persons experience is unique. What is consistent across everybody is the ability to manifest goals through meditation.
There are many different kinds of meditation techniques. The following is for floor seated meditation called "counting the breaths" in Soto style Zen. Let us begin with posture. You should choose a zafu (meditative pillow) filled with kapok or buckwheat hull. A kapok filled zafu provides a firmer zafu which is conducive for longer meditative periods. The buckwheat filled zafu provides a softer zafu, sort of like sitting on sand. Some people prefer the buckwheat. If you have a hardwood floor you might want to consider a zabuton. A zabuton is a large square mat that you place the zafu in the center of. This will provide comfort for your ankles. You should sit slightly forward on the zafu so your legs rest on the ground. The zafu will help keep your back straight. The best position for your legs in the beginning is the "Burmese" posture where both knees are on the ground and the calves are lying next to one another. Your hands should rest comfortably in your lap, left hand in the right with the thumbs gently touching together.
The brain is an organ of the body, and like each organs, it's projected to perform one or numerous special tasks. One of the brainpowers principal tasks constitutes to be the control nerve center for the entire somatic body. Our heartbeat, digestion, temperature and altogether the 'automatic' unconscious process taking place to preserve us alive are commanded by the brainpower. It Executes this much suchlike a computer by processing both inner and external sensorial information. The brain provides us with the interface of conscious awareness, what scientists call 'auto-consciousness.' The stimulations from our five senses are 'processed' in the mind and revealed on a 'sentiment screen' for us to take note and interact with. Although the brain's working on electrochemical entropy is moderately well interpreted, no one acknowledges how the mind permits us to be knowledgeable of our self. Actually, the mind has no particular emplacement where memory is stored; therefore, how our mind memorializes is still a mystery.

The human chakra system was discovered thousands of years ago, and has been confirmed by numerous proven studies like acupuncture, yoga, and reiki. This amazing aspect of human health represents the raw energy of the human being. I like to think of the chakra system as the fifth level of human being. Allow me to put this into perspective: We are all aware of the physical body, psychological awareness, and emotional mind where the mental and physical actually meet in the form of peptides. Many people also choose to acknowledge the spiritual realm of life; by this reckoning we now have four aspects of the human form. The chakra system, with its meridians and auric fields, represents the raw energy the flows through the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual expressions of a human being. It can be thought of as the source power that drives our existence. When certain areas of the chakra system are out of balance, physical disease can manifest in the body. Likewise emotional disorders can occur when other aspects of the human energy system are blocked or out of balance.
