Here are a few meditation techniques that can help you get started on this quest.

 

Zen meditation

 

Zen meditation finds its roots in Buddhism. Practitioners are encouraged to clear their mind of worries and focus on their breathing. You can practice this form of meditation by either sitting on the floor or on a chair. Close your eyes, fold your palms on top of each other and breathe slowly.

 

Mindfulness meditation

 

This is a great form of meditation that can be practiced anywhere. All of you have to do is sit still and absorb everything that is happening around you. Allow yourself to immerse in the sights and sounds surrounding you, and pay close attention to how you react to these situations. With time, practitioners are able to calmly respond to any situation they are thrown into.

 

Rosary bead meditation

 

Rosary bead meditation or japa meditation is great for those seeking spiritual contentment. All you have to do is sit still and repeat a mantra over and over again until you feel at one with it. This is good for calming down, disconnecting yourself from stress and reaffirming your faith is a higher being.

Gazing meditation

In this type of meditation, you will have to sit still and focus all your attention on an external object. The object is usually a flame or a symbol and practitioners are asked to gaze at it. This form of meditation improves concentration and visual powers of the mind.

Sound meditation

This type of meditation encourages you to focus on sound. External sounds such as calming music of a flute is played to quieten and collect the mind. With time you will be able to hear the internal music of your mind and body - a sign of awareness.
