As with all meditations, you might like to know that it’s normal for your mind to wander. It’s ok. If and when it does, simply bring your focus and awareness back to your breathing or the sound of the voice or music you are listening to. Allow any thoughts, external sounds, pictures, internal dialogue, emotions or sensations to just “be” – without judging or labelling them. Allow yourself to remain detached while you are noticing them, as though they are travelling through your awareness, like a passing car. In other words, don’t feel obliged to have an opinion about them. This might feel hard to do at first, but when you really “get it” you will find that your conscious, logical, busy mind gets bored with trying to analyze and work hard to get your attention all the time. You will find peace and silence between those thoughts and the “gaps between” will become longer. When you are in those “gaps between” this is your meditative state. Learning comes from practice and repetition.
Guided meditation make the process easier, because as you “follow the voice” your focus narrows down to only one thing to do, then soon after – that drops away too. Then there is “nothing”. That “nothing” is the peaceful state of meditation.
Examples of common problems in meditations:
-You feel itchy or uncomfortable. Instead of getting annoyed and judging it, notice the sensation and feel free to scratch or adjust. Get more comfortable. The end. “There I go feeling itchy”. Scratch it. The end.
-Your mind drifts off to worrying about something. Just notice that this thought popped up. A thought is only a thought. Thoughts pop up like bubbles. “There I go thinking about…xyz”. No need to do anything about it. The end.
-There is an external noise such as noisy car driving by or a plane flying by. Typically you might wish for it to hurry up so that it doesn’t ruin your meditation. This is also judgement and labelling. So you simply notice it. “There goes a car…or plane”. You noticed it. The end. Soon you will find that you hardly notice such things or if you do, it doesn’t bother you. It can be there and not matter.
When you don’t engage with your thinking mind it gets bored. When you try to restrict it, (try not to think about something) it will consider that you are engaging with it and it will get busy again.
The answer is to “allow” without judgment.
Having said that, you should aim to do your meditation in a time and place where you are not likely to be disturbed. Ideally you should be alone or at least ask others not to disturb you.
