In order to practice mediation, one simply needs to be open-minded and you can mediate everywhere; even in the middle of a big city. Just observe what is happening around you without wanting to interfere. To inwardly take a step back in order to change your point of view – that can change so much! It’s also called mindfulness and that’s the basis for mediation. Once you’ve found a place where you can close your eyes, sit or lie down, the next step follows; stop planning everything today, let the outside world do its own thing and listen to your breathing instead. Mindful breathing is one of the most important elements in mediation. With practice and time, the flow of you breathing out is supposed to be even longer than the intake – maybe even twice as long. In doing so, your breath is flowing un-laboured, without any force. The “letting things happen” leads to an even deeper form of relaxation and that is our, believed to be lost, source of energy.
