End of the sitting
You can use a timer or bell to alarm yourself about coming back and ending the sitting. The sound should not be so hard for your ears. Bring back yourself. Stay silent for a while. You will feel tremendous silence inside you.
Dancing before sitting
You can try this technique as well. Dance to your favorite steps before the sitting, to make yourself little lighter. It will shed some of the burdens from your mind and body. I myself, prefer to dance before sitting. Because it helps to release emotions from the body and helps to calm down. It enhances your mood. You feel tremendous joy after dancing. You don’t have to be a perfect dancer for doing it. So just play your favorite music and dance. This technique is really helpful for those who face problems while sitting idle and silence because of the flutter inside them.
If I have to summarize meditation I would say that being watchful is the key to meditation. Therefore keep on watching your thoughts without getting involved in them by reacting or judging or observing them. Imagine you are standing at a railway station. Many trains are coming and going. All you have to do is to watch them devoid of any question or knowledge as to where those trains are going without getting carried away with them. Be watchful and be easy on yourself.
Some of the routine changes you might like to do:
- Watch less TV as much as possible.
- Don’t watch aggressive stuff on the internet or TV.
- Don’t watch emotional videos because it affects your emotional state of mind.
- Eat healthy and light food.
- Take a shower and wear clean clothes before sitting. Preferably wear the same clothes every time. Because clothes soak up the energy.
- Sit in the same place.
- Keep watching your breath and emotions.
P.S. You might fall asleep in the starting during meditation. Don’t get disheartened about it.
