Meditation and Self awareness

Hello readers,

Its late and I’m in bed right now but I just got the thought to write this post, so here I go..

Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of meditation music, mostly before bed and I’ve seen a massive difference within myself and my consciousness. Whenever I start to feel angry, jealous or even slightly depressed I remember chants, sounds and the feeling of the vibrations.

I used to be an angry person when I was growing up, I never liked to open up to anyone. I thought if I couldn’t deal with my problems or thoughts why should I burden anyone else, I’m only 20 so I still consider myself as a young person and I still have a lot to learn in and about life!

I was sceptical about meditating before when I used to hear other people talk about it, but you should never knock something until you try it.

So I went onto YouTube and simply typed in ‘ Deep meditation music’ and clicked the one with the most views, then of course read the comments. I saw a lot of positive feedback and others expressing how much it betters them just by listening.

A few days then weeks passed where I would repeatedly fall asleep listening to meditation and self awareness music, I found it quite easy to relax as I’m a heavy sleeper who finds it easy to fall asleep fast. I’ve had a friend say certain sounds can make it hard for them to relax and fall asleep, with constant eye movement even when closed.

Then I stumbled upon ‘mantra’ (originally from Buddhism and Hinduism) For those who do not know mantra is a sacred utterance, a numinous sound, syllable or word/s in Sanskrit believed by practitioners to have psychological and spiritual powers.

Repeating mantra is said to affirm it’s meaning to our self and change our thought process! Changing our core being for the better.

This is why I’m finding meditation so powerful and wish I could inspire others to start!

There are lots of different mantras so you should find the one that’s best for you. If you want a different types of meditation from, listening to and focusing on relaxing music, listening to and feeling the breaths you take as you inhale and exhale and also thinking about nothing (Zen) and so on..

My goal is to get myself to a higher state of consciousness, to be awakened and open all my chakras!

Will be doing another post soon on the Third eye and the 7 Chakras! I shall fill you in throughout my ‘enlightenment journey’
