                                          How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

                                          How to Practice Positive Meditation in 2 Simple Steps

                                          Just by simply spending some effort and time, staying positive every day can be easily achieved. All that is required is a fraction of your time, 10-15 minutes a day to cultivate the positive you!

                                          But first, what is really positive thinking? Do you have to be in an upbeat, cheerful and enthusiastic mood all day to be positive minded?

                                          No. Positive thinking simply means the absence of negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, inner peace!

                                          Advertising

                                          When you are truly at peace within yourself, you are naturally thinking positively. You don’t have to fight off negative thoughts, or search desperately for more positive thoughts. It just happens on its own. And here are 2 positive thinking meditation tips to empower you:

                                          1. Relax as You Meditate

                                          A powerful, simple yet rarely used technique is meditation. Meditation doesn’t have to take the form of static body posture. It can be as simple as sitting in a comfortable chair listening to soothing music. Or performing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises.

                                          Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you FEEL more relaxed, you naturally THINK more positively!

                                          Advertising

                                          Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings. Just let them go for those few minutes, and you may decide not to pick them back up again at all!

                                          2. Practice Daily Affirmations

                                          Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life.

                                          What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale.

                                          Advertising

                                          So how does one go about using positive affirmations in everyday life? Let’s look at some guidelines to follow when reciting your daily affirmations.

                                          1. Use first person pronouns in your message (I)
                                          2. Use present tense (I have)
                                          3. Use positive messages (I am happy)
                                          4. Repeat your affirmations on a consistent basis

                                          Affirmations have to be said with conviction and consistency. Start your day by saying your affirmations out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.

                                          Here’s an example of a “success affirmation” you can use on a daily basis:

                                          Advertising

                                          I am successful in everything I do. Every venture I get into returns wealth to me. I am constantly productive. I always perform to the full potential I have and have respect for my abilities.
                                          My work is always given positive recognition. I augment my income constantly. I always have adequate money for everything I require. I spend my money prudently always. My work is always rewarded.

                                          Remember, affirmations work on the basis of conviction and consistency. Do yourself a favor and make a commitment to see this through.

                                          Begin practicing these positive thinking tips right now. And I wish you continued empowerment and growth on your positive thinking journey.
