[AlternativeAnswers] Meditations


Here are helpful meditations to relieve stress and be in a state of peace.
Your Issue: "I'm going through a very emotionally taxing time."
Your Meditation: Loving-kindness meditation. Sit quietly, breathe normally, and gather your attention around the repetition of the phrase "May I be happy, may I be peaceful." Whenever your attention wanders, gently let those thoughts go, and come back to the phrase. At the end, after repeating that phrase for yourself, offer it up to include all beings everywhere, saying, "May all things be happy, may all things be peaceful."
Your Issue: "I feel stressed from the minute I get to the office until the minute I leave."
Your Meditation: A traditional Tibetan technique called sky-gazing meditation. Look out the window, relax your whole body, and let your gaze expand into the spaciousness of the sky. Repeat the ahhh sound silently—it's the most open sound you can make, and it amplifies the feeling. Let your attention go, and sit for a few minutes. If you're not near a window (or worry people will think you're daydreaming), sub your computer screen for the sky and rest your attention on it.
Your Issue: "Help! I can't focus."
Your Meditation: Sit in a comfortable place, breathe naturally, and settle your attention on your breath. With each inhale and exhale, mentally repeat the words "in" and "out." If your mind wanders, don't worry. Just let go, without judgment of whatever is taking you away from the breath, and bring your attention back to it.
Your Issue: "I feel adrift. I don't know what I want out of life right now."
Your Meditation: Sit in a comfortable position, in bed or in your favorite chair. Settle your breath, close your eyes, and, as you breathe, mentally repeat the words "I am." Whenever your attention drifts away from the words to other thoughts (which is natural), gently restate the words "I am" again. After 5 minutes, stop repeating, and start asking yourself "What do I want?" Don't feel like you have to answer it—just ask it. Repeat the question 2 to 4 times—let your mind settle down and see what bubbles up. Sometimes we're so distracted by stress that we never take time to settle down and listen to what our body, mind, and soul are telling us.
