WHAT IS MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION?
WHY PRACTICE MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION?
WHERE TO START?
Collection One Is designed to assist beginners, & perhaps broaden the level of understanding for intermediates, by using simplicity over complexity toward the practices of Mindfulness & Meditation
This collection of practices assists the aspirant to become familiar with the first step toward awakening, and the development of emotional freedom.
The First step is the practice of Awareness.
By developing awareness of the physical & non-physical Bodies that make-up the thing we call Self, you will begin to shine a light on what is truly taking place each moment of life.
During this first step, Awareness of Mindfulness is developed through specific practices of breathing meditations. These meditations create the necessary foundation for deepening concentration and developing insight. They also help us to sustain mindfulness in all situations throughout the day.
PRACTICE ONE: DAYS 1-7
Be aware of the in-breath & out-breath. Awareness is the first step.
1.Identify the breath. Say out loud, “breathing-in, I know this to be an in-breath.” “Breathing-out, I know this to be an out-breath.”
Practice this until the Self recognizes these to be true & present. Do not be in a rush to move forward onto the next practice; allow time for the Self to recognize how easily the Self can be distracted by thoughts vying for attention, or a desire to move ahead to ‘the next thing.’
