Sitting Meditation Two

Hi again, just wanted to add a summary of How to practice sitting meditation.

Sitting meditation
1. Sit in a comfortable position. If the lotus is to difficult, just sit in a chair, with feet touching the ground, your spine straight, and your hands in you lab

2. Keep your eyes closed or focused on an object i.e. a flower or a picture

3. Breath slowly through your nostrils

4. Repeat a comforting and calming word or a sentence.

5. Meditate for 10- 30 minutes each time

We consist of body, mind and soul.
-The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.

a buddist quote, author, unknown


Spirituality is an important aspect of our lives. Without a sense of faith or spirituality we cannot be complete. It is in God that we are one. Through meditation and prayer we are able to connect to the spirit within us and the spirtit that is in every living being. What I like about meditation is that it cross religious, you can even practice meditation with good results if you consider your self to be a non- believer.

Health benefits
Meditation will relax your entire body and mind. Medical researches have shown that if meditation is practiced regularly the heart rate slows down, this decreases the risk of cardiovascular problems, it also helps prevent and fix sleeping disorders, depression, anxiety as well as providing the practicer with an overall feeling of well being. Venkatesh S, Raju TR, Shivani Y, Tompkins G, Meti BL. (1997).


There are many ways to meditate. No matter which method you choose, remember these pointers. Keep your back straight, breath slowly and keep your focus on one thing at a time.
In later posts I will describe a few methods of meditation that work well for me and others

Welcome to happiness and ease

It has been my hobby for some time to study methods and principles that make peoples lives better. A better life means happier, more relaxed, more enjoyable and more successful life. By applying the methods or principles you´ll learn here, you will gain more control over almost every area of your every day life.
Your professional life will be more enjoyable and because of your attitude and feelings you will have a greater opportunity to gain higher success. Lets face it an easy going, friendly , assertive and helpful person is more likely to get that promotion, than someone who´s tense, irritatable or overly withdrawn.
These methods and principles will make your family life better as well. The time you spend with your children and spouse will be actual quality times. Why? Because you´ll be better organised, happier and more to give.
The same can be said about your social life, spirituality and health.
The main focus on this webpage will be on how to enhance your life by making relaxation and meditation a part of your daily life.
Looking forward to sharing my insides with you and please share your thougts and ideas with me.
Best wishes
