MindValley blog discusses some elements of mindful meditation. Following are some the characteristics that are consistent with mindful meditation
- Mindful meditation focuses on developing awareness. They were in us could be up to one’s breath of one’s body or internal thoughts.
- Mindfulness meditation has one variable that tends to be prevalent and successful. My fermentation talks about being able to be aware without judgment. Is there one is able to observe or witnessed experience without feeling attached to it or critical of it.
- Mindful meditation strives to cultivate peace. If I don’t have a specific attachment to an outcome and if I don’t have a judgment about how I’m doing it, I can allow myself to have the experience of being present.
So what does it mean to be non-judgemental of one’s meditation?
- If I am going to meditation believing that I need to be calm and relaxed that is demonstrating attachment to an outcome that I may not be able to achieve.
- If my mind moves to other thoughts outside of the meditation and I judge that as if I’m doing something wrong, that is judgmental and interferes with my ability to meditate.
- If I am accepting of the process, and allow it to unfold as it will, then I am allowing myself to fully embrace mindful meditation.
I’m hoping today you were able to take 5, 10, or 30 minutes to be able to allow yourself to meditate.
How did that go for you?
Would love to hear some feedback.
