Overcoming the Fear of Meditation

By Grace Sara

I’ve noticed that not many people address the problem of fearing meditation, because this is still a relatively unexplored subject. Many tend to focus on the popular issue of, “I can’t sit still while meditating. What are the alternatives to sitting?” However, what happens if you are too uncomfortable with silence, and do not have the courage to listen to your innermost thoughts?

Do you assume that meditation is just for New Age types who spend time at retreats in the woods? It’s not: Meditation is for all types and all situations. Yes, of course, there are meditation paths for people who really do want to disconnect for a week and wander the woods. But there are also ways for ordinary people with just a few moments to spare can meditate and find real benefits for themselves and their health.

Don’t Have Time for Sitting Meditation? Try Mindfulness Driving Meditation

By Solan McCLean

I have always been attracted to meditation. I have had some success with practice when I was single, and before having children. Sitting meditation takes time. I also explored mindfulness meditation with a Vipassana teacher and found that it was the type of meditation that made the most sense to me.

Then life got lifey—a business, marriage, kids. I remember never having meaningful time to sit down in a quiet place for any amount of time to meditate, and guess what happened. I couldn’t put together a meaningful practice. So, it didn’t come to fruition for me. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. In fact, at one time I did make the time and it worked quite well.

“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” ~ Buddha

Many people these days are starting a mindfulness meditation practice with great intentions and lots of enthusiasm. They’ve heard of the stress-reducing and other health benefits of the practice, and are eager to start meditating. However, few of them stay committed long-term. And those who don’t stick with it, will have a hard time dealing with stress in their lives.

There are several reasons why many people quit after a short period of time:

  • They don’t understand what mindfulness meditation is.
  • They’re not sure how to get started.
  • They don’t have a plan for following through.
  • They don’t have a support group.

How to Beat Holiday Stress with Mindfulness

“Life is available only in the present moment.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

The holiday season is upon us and most of us are looking forward to enjoying the festivities, and spending quality time with loved ones. This is a time for sharing peace, love, and happiness. However, for many people the holidays have become a great source of stress.

We all have an idea of how events should unfold. So, in our desire to have everything go as planned, we create more stress for ourselves, and lose sight of what the holidays really mean. And as we become more stressed out, we pass that stress on to our loved ones, and end up needing a vacation after our vacation.

How to Stop Worrying with Mindfulness Meditation

By David Stringham

Generally speaking, mindfulness meditation provides us with tools that guide us to its benefits—increased happiness, health, and peace. One of the most powerful tools of mindfulness meditation is learning to listen to and understand the inner workings of our own minds. You might even call this understanding of self through mindfulness an innerstanding.

Developing knowledge of one’s self is a great endeavor, but to make the pursuit more manageable, we can divide it into smaller tasks. A great place to start is to learn of and understand the specific moods and automatic process of our cognition. These processes, when left unobserved, seem to give our minds “minds of their own” and determine our emotional states without our conscious consent.
