How to meditate

Meditation is the process of focusing your mind on some object or thought to point where you lose awareness of everything else. Anyone can learn how to meditate. It just takes a bit of practice.

Some people believe that meditation will allow you to get in touch with a higher consciousness. Others meditate to help them gain mental equilibrium or meditate as a way of improving health.
All forms of meditation can help overcome stress, to rise above time pressure, deadlines, difficult relationships, anxiety and anger. It is easy to learn how to meditate.

All the meditation techniques originated as religious practices. All major religions have used meditation techniques to achieve feelings of enhanced spirituality. There are thought to be two basic forms of meditation, Zen meditation and Transcendental meditation.

Zen Meditation aims to let you become more self aware, completely focussed on your inner self.

Transcendental Meditation is the opposite. It intended  for transcending, or leaving behind, the self altogether.

How to Meditate with Self Hypnosis

Is there a difference between self hypnosis and meditation? They both use the same natural processes to induce trance. You can be guided into a hypnotic state by someone else. Or you can go into trance by yourself with guided meditation. Ultimately they both lead to much the same outcome. To a certain extent, it is like asking about the difference between wine and beer. They both contain the same key ingredient, they both create the same effect, but they are produced in different ways. And just like hypnosis and meditation, there are any number of slightly different ways to get there.

Meditation is perhaps best understood as a particular type of hypnotic trance. It is  used often as part of religious practices.


They both create  a deeply relaxed state, they lead to a calm mind, reduce stress, require  a focus of attention, and typically use words and imagery to reach the desired state. They are both essentially forms of personal dissociation.


There is little difference between a meditative state, and a hypnotic state. The real differences are what they are used for in therapy.  You use meditation to forget yourself, to release yourself from thoughts and worries. The aim is often to try to reach some 'higher state' and escape into it.

Hypnotherapy, on the other hand, is used to address your problems directly, to focus on them, to become aware of them. Hypnosis is typically used to identify and work with issues from your past. Meditation is used to get away from your past. Some forms of meditation, mindfulness, are specifically concerned with being only aware of the present, so you exclude your past.


The mindfulness meditation technique is designed to make the mediator more attuned to their world. Awareness is brought to bear on the reality of the present moment. Traditional eastern meditation teaches that all thoughts are banished and the mind focuses on simply being.

In fact, is is more accurate to say that the object of mindfulness meditation is to prevent racing thoughts from filling every moment. Many people find their mind is always active, called rumination. Rumination stops them from relaxing, stops them sleeping, and causes them to feel anxious all the time because they never get a rest.

Mindfulness meditation interrupts the stream of thoughts and allows the mind to turn off the negative thoughts. Once the thoughts have stopped mindfulness lets your natural healing ability get to work.


Mindfulness is a meditation technique designed to let you discover what is going on in your mind, of becoming aware of what is happening to you right now. People who benefit from mindfulness tend to be those who feel that the world
