I am a beginner with meditation. I am hoping it will help me deal with the stress of my new job. How do you empty your mind when meditating? When I was doing the video I kept thinking about what I need to do tomorrow and whether I was breathing properly? Any tips would be appreciated!

Dear friend,
Sometimes it just takes time, to develop the habit of watching your thoughts without following them up, so without actively engaging with them, then after some time they subside. It might also help sometimes at the beginning to just tell your mind like you would tell a naughty child, that you are meditating now, so it has to be quiet and not bother you, and you with deal with whatever it wants after the meditation.
There are some other techniques that are also helpful, but you will learn them gradually as you follow the classes one by one.
Best,
Mar’yana

Dear Mar’yana,
I have been meditating for last one year, but still I feel it difficult to be thoughtless. Can you guide me a good technique, through which I can be thoughtless during meditation. Normaly twice in a day I do the medication for about 1 hr.
Regards

Dear friend,

Generally, the techniques that are intruduced in our online course should be sufficient for starting to get into thoughtless awareness. Anything beyond that is very difficult to suggest, without knowing you in person, – it could be so many different things… Have you tried asking advise of other sahaja yogis at your local centre where you are going?

To be able to give any suggestions beyond this basic introductory level, we might need to know, what it is that you do during your meditations, which balancing/clearing techniques you are doing and how often, what is your experience with meditation at your local sahaja yoga centre, etc. – to start with…

Best,
Mar’yana
