Meditation – help your children to be focused, & stress free- What Bible say about Meditation.

11 Oct

je2I am a 33 year old woman and I am always stressed out in my daily routine monotonous life which leads to unhealthy life. I have heard from people that meditation keeps us calm and helps to manage stress in our routine life. So I tried to meditate however I fail in meditating regularly. I miss the schedule always; If a good habit/learning is not practiced regularly, we cannot consume the effect completely. I read from Robin Sharma’s book ‘The Monk who sold his Ferrari’, that if you practice a new good habit for continuous 21 days, you would not miss the schedule next. I would say it worked.

I am now able to manage my stress and able to lead a healthy life. My daughter who is just 5 year old is also trying to practice meditation every day. Hope this piece of information could motivate you all to meditate and help your child to practice it.

Try this out and share what you feel.

Some Information about Meditation and links I got from you tube to learn meditation :-

Here are five that I feel are best suited for anyone new to meditation. (We are practicing Movement / Breathing meditation)
1.Mindfulness Meditation: The most well-known type of meditation, mindfulness meditation, is about being aware of the sounds and activities happening around you. It’s almost a flow-like type of meditation, because you literally just let your mind be fluid and flow from one thought to the next, not really focusing on one particular thing. For instance, if you live in a noisy city, you don’t have to block out the outside sirens and screaming children, you let your mind be aware of the sounds without becoming too focused.

2.Spiritual Meditation: This type of meditation is for those who regularly participate in prayer, as it’s based on communicating with God. Just like the other styles, you must become calm and quiet and then begin to focus on a question or problem you might have. This style of meditation can feel not only relaxing, but rewarding as well.

3.Focused Meditation: If the idea of clearing your mind of all thoughts stresses you out, focused meditation is great because you can focus on a sound, object, mantra, or thought. The key here is to just focus on one of these things and stay committed to that one thought or object. This is when relaxation music comes in handy. Even though you’re essentially using your mind, you’ll be amazed at how rejuvenated you feel afterwards. In our day to day lives, our minds really are in 10 different places at once!

4.Movement Meditation: Movement meditation may seem intimidating, but if you’re by yourself and you really get into it, it can be extremely uplifting and relaxing at the same time. Sitting with your eyes closed, simply focus on your breath and try out different gentle, repetitive flowing movements. Rather than focus on a sound, object, or thought, just turn your attention to your movement. I find a slow left and right swaying motion to be therapeutic, or you could try moving your entire upper body in a slow circular motion.

5.Mantra Meditation: Mantras are words that are chanted loudly during meditation. It may seem odd to be making loud noises during a meditation session, but it’s actually the sounds that become the object being focused on. In yoga, the mantra Om is regularly used since it delivers a deep vibration that makes it easy for the mind to concentrate on that particular sound.

I recommend Lodi’s music CD, which help children to reduce stress free and relax. http://www.stressfreekids.com/category/cds/music-cds

What does The Bible speak about Meditation

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Psalm 19:14

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I rejoice in the Lord.

Proverbs 4:20-22

My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh.

Psalm 119:97

Oh how I love your law! It is my meditation all the day.

Psalm 49:3

My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.

Isaiah 26:3
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
