Meditation for Beginners: Best Ways of How To Meditate Properly

One question I’m asked a lot is “what is the best meditation for beginners“?

A lot of people think that meditating involves a lot of practice and is complicated.

And whilst that’s true for some forms of meditation, there are several ways that you can begin to learn how to meditate without much effort…

Different types of meditation for beginners

For me, hands down the easiest way to meditate is with something called “binaural beats meditation“. This sounds complicated but the reality is that all the hard work has been done for you. All you need to do is put on your headphones and press Play.

There are lots of different methods available within this area. Probably the best known is Centerpointe’s Holosync program and that’s where I started out. I found two problems with it: the cost to go through all the levels is high and the full course takes years to complete.

So when I came across the Meditation Program I had to take a look.

This promised the same kind of results as Centerpointe but in a timescale anyone could relate to – weeks, rather than years.

As a beginners meditation, it’s a great system. You listen to a prerecorded track for between 30 and 60 minutes a day. The recording and the binaural beats behind it put you into a deep meditative state – one that would take you years to achieve by traditional methods.

I’m still using the system today, listening to it on a daily basis to help keep me focussed.

Whether you’re just about to start learning to meditate or have been meditating for some time, I highly recommend it. You can get hold of a copy of the Meditation Program here.

Whilst my preference is for the “high tech” meditation method, some people prefer a more traditional method of meditation.

I’ve investigated a lot of different methods for this as well and one of the best I’ve found is Core Energy Meditation.

It’s well explained – you can either listen to the background information with the audio files you’ll get or you can read the transcript of these if you prefer. Some people like to have the explanation in front of them as it keeps the rational side of their mind happy. So if that’s the case for you, this will be a good system for you.

Then there are the two main guided meditations. Kevin Schoeninger has a soothing voice, which is ideal for going into a meditative state. You can hear a sample of it here.

One big advantage of Core Energy Meditation is that the meditations themselves are short: you can choose from 20 minutes or 40 minutes. So if you’re pressed for time, this is an excellent choice.

Which is better? Binaural Beats Meditation or Guided Meditation?

I think the answer to this question is down to personal preference. Both systems work well.

If you’re the high tech, gadget type who just wants to put on a track and do absolutely nothing else, then a binaural beats meditation will work well for you.

If you like to know a bit more about how the technique works then the more traditional guided meditation is an excellent choice.

The main thing is to actually start to meditate. It’s an excellent experience and you’ll find yourself more relaxed after even a few sessions. If you’re able to practice most days, you’ll find a noticeable difference with either of these methods in a short space of time, regardless of your level of experience.

In my view, the best introduction to meditation for meditation for beginners is this one.

Micro Niche Finder Review

Micro Niche Finder is the tool I use to find keywords when I’m looking for themes for articles or pretty much anything else.

It hooks in to the Google keyword tool, so you know that real people are searching for the phrases it finds.

And it stores them in its own database so you can go back to previous searches whenever you want to.

But it also does a lot more:

Carbonite Backup: Online PC Backup Review

If you’re like most people I know, backing up the important data on your hard drive is something you know you should do but you’ll get round to it some day soon, honest – Carbonite Backup solves this problem.

Same goes for your cell phone. You probably only back it up when someone else has lost their phone. I know I’m usually embarrassed at how long there is between backups on my cell phone.

And backing up my hard drive? Well, I kept meaning to get an external drive and use that. But somehow it never happened…

PDF Password Recovery Review

If you’re 100% organised, there’s a chance you may not need to to use a PDF password recovery program.

I’ve got a lot of PDFs scattered over my hard drive and some of those have a password attached to them.

Usually I rename them so that the file name tells me what the password is. But occasionally I don’t do that and then need to hunt through emails or MSN chats to find what the password was.

Other people I know get sent password protected PDFs at work and they either have to add to their collection of Post It notes or find somewhere else to store the password.

Guru Bypass Review

If you’ve been online for a while, you’ll have come across numerous systems promising that you can make your fortune without spending any money, you’ve maybe even come across Guru Bypass.

I’m not sure exactly what caused me to buy the Guru Bypass system – most likely it was the case studies (you can get your copy of these at the end of this page in exchange for your email address).

Anyway, whatever the exact reason, I’m glad I did…

When Outsourcing Goes Bad

Outsourcing. (Or what used to be called delegation)

The idea sounds great: give all the things you can’t do or don’t want to do to someone else.

Sites like Elance and Rentacoder make outsourcing a task anyone can do.

Most of the time, things go well or at least reasonably well. I’ve been outsourcing all sorts of things for some time now.

But when outsourcing goes bad….

Secrets of Real Hypnosis Review

The Secrets of Real Hypnosis is delivered on one CD. This contains two hypnosis tracks and a setup file which installs the main course into its own folder on your PC.

The first chapter gives an overview of hypnosis and reassures you that hypnosis is a perfectly natural state that we all drop into from time to time.

If you don’t believe this, think back to a car journey where you remember little, if anything, about the trip between setting out on the journey and arriving at your destination. You were in a hypnotic trance, maybe because you do the journey so often that you were on the human equivalent of auto-pilot. Continue reading

NLP Toolbox Review

When I first investigated Neuro Linguistic Programming, I read a few books and was pretty much none the wiser about how NLP worked. I then graduated to an audio series and, finally, took a live course.

The NLP Toolbox promises that you will get the top one hundred NLP tools in an easy-to-master format.

Does it live up to this bold claim?

If you want the quick answer: Yes!

The toolbox is delivered as a PDF file. Which means you can read it on near enough any computer or, if you prefer, sacrifice a few trees and print it out.

The report starts by giving you permission to experiment and have fun. Like most everything in life, you won’t always get the expected results. And NLP is no different. Continue reading

Ten Minute Phobia Cure Review

Phobias are defined as being irrational fears of certain things or situations so the idea of a fast phobia cure shouldn’t take you too much by surprise.

Which, whilst it’s probably true, doesn’t help much if you’re unlucky enough to suffer from a phobia.

Whether you’re afraid of spiders, heights, flying, public speaking or anything else, it’s likely holding you back in some way.

Which is where the 10 Minute Phobia Cure comes in… Continue reading
