Out with the New, In with the Old

Meditated twice in the evening with the sessions lasting 10 minutes each - I haven't practiced deep breathing for some time now, most likely the reason why the deep breathing today wasn't having that relaxing effect on me. Anyways, I was still able to get relaxed enough by just following the sensations of my breathing. Began hearing spanish words- sounded like a whole lot of gibberish, not very good at Spanish so was unable to make out clear sentences. I clearly remember hearing the word navella or nabella - not sure what it means but I remember trying to figure it out at the time.

I haven't been meditating consistently with the traditional technique of following the breath, however I have been listening to some guided meditations. I'm having different effects with the guided meditations - the relaxing process feels much longer compared to the traditional method of focusing on the breath and at times can be frustrating, maybe this has a lot more to do with me and my inability to follow instructions. With that said I have had two or three refreshing sessions with the guided meditation. I intend on sticking with some of the traditional methods and on occasions using guided meditation.

I can't really recommend any guided meditation as I have yet to get accustomed to them, but if you are having trouble with meditating the traditional way such as concentration meditation (focusing on the breath) perhaps listening to some soothing music in the background can be more effective.

It would be beneficial to listen to a deep relaxation meditation as that state is conducive for meditation and will help in the long run.

I'm currently listening to Opening The Heart Series (Hemi-Sync), though inconsistently enough to not get results but I'll keep the blog updated with any progress I make.
