Meditation online has begun to grow in popularity in the Western world as people have begun to see the benefits. It is the process of training the mind to redirect your thoughts and focus. There are several different meditation styles to establish more mindfulness, awareness, and concentration.
Glo offers meditation online and they include a variety of different techniques to help you get all the benefits of meditating.
One form of meditation online that Glo provides is mantra meditation. A mantra is a phrase, a word, or even a syllable that is spoken allowed or repeated in the mind.
Mantras are based in Buddhist and Hindu traditions with the recitations of ‘sacred words’ to create a mind-heart connection. However, there is also a large mantra tradition in a variety of spiritual traditions including the Judeo-Christian tradition. It is even becoming more popular among the non-secular mindfulness practice.
Before you begin, it is best to discover which mantra appeals to you. Some people use mantras to help them create a greater sense of well-being and a positive attitude. The repetition of the phrase or word can help relax the mind, reducing stress and anxiety.
Glo has a number of different mantras for meditation including the class by Kia Miller called, ‘Mantra Meditation to Clear Chakras and Find Calm’. This class is focused on using a mantra to project the mind into a state of knowing, creating a greater sense of calm and peace.
Guided meditation is an incredibly powerful tool to gain more self-awareness through imagery. The guided imagery allows you to use your imagination to change your focus. It has a number of different benefits like reaching goals, promoting healing, and promoting relaxation.
The thoughts you think can have a large impact on your body. The body reacts in the same way as if it is actually experiencing it as it is when you just imagine it. This is because of the way the amygdala functions. It has difficulty determining between what is seen in a visualization meditation and what is actually happening in real-time.
Guided meditation can also improve your confidence. When you picture yourself attaining your goals they become more easily reached. You also start believing in your ability to achieve these goals.
One world-renowned teacher of guided meditation is Elena Bower. Her Glo Energy meditation allows you to get in harmony with your desires and intentions. With meditation online, you can practice anywhere. You can even download the course on any device!
Mindfulness meditation helps the mind focus on being fully present mentally. Not only will you be aware of where you are, but you release the reactiveness and sense of being overwhelmed.
The mental training practice allows you to release the thoughts that cause you to ruminate on the past. Whether its school, family, or work, it is easy to get caught in the swirling, chaotic thoughts. IT can even lead to anxiety or distress. However, when you start practising mindfulness meditation, it helps reduce your anxiety and stress.
Glo has the perfect mindfulness meditation for beginners by the teacher Trudy Goodman. Her beginner’s guide helps you break down the basics of getting in touch with your true self. You’ll learn the best postures and the ways to set intentions for your practice.
Meditation also helps you focus on your breathing, allowing you to become more mindful of your breaths instead of just getting caught up in different sounds, emotions, and thoughts. Instead, it allows you to get in tune with your body. You will get distracted and that’s completely normal. However, when you notice your attention has wandered, come back to focusing on your breath.
