Once you learn to practice Transcendental Meditation, you’ll find results and benefits right away. Through a bit of practice, you could be doing this within a week or so, especially if you have practised the other types of meditations prior to this.

Transcendental Meditation Mantras

During Transcendental Meditation, you will work closely with an instructor. This instructor not only will walk you through the process of entering into this type of meditation, but he or she will also provide you with a unique mantra to use during the process.

Remember that a mantra is a word or a few syllables of a word that you will say over and over again. In this type of meditation, your instructor will give you a specific mantra to say that is chosen specifically for you.

This type of selection is based on your body’s needs and your nervous system specifically.

Once you have been given this type of meditation mantra, you can then begin the process of meditation. You must promise not to tell anyone what your mantra is as that’s part of the process.


Clearing the mind

From this point, you will sit down quietly and clear your mind of anything that is going through it.

Then, you’ll close your eyes gently and relax your muscles throughout your body, much like that of a simple meditation.

From here, you’ll begin repeating your mantra over and over again. The goal is to completely focus on those words. When you do this, over and over again, you’ll want to dispel any other thoughts that come into your mind.

Clearing your mind and bring it back to the mantra is going to allow you to find benefits in meditation You should practice this type of meditation at least two times per day, every day.

Finding “Oneness” with the Universe

In this type of meditation, your goal is to find an “oneness” with the universe. By repeating this one word or idea over and over again, you enter into a state of consciousness that is elevated.
You are creating a one between you and the universe.

During the process, you’ll use your passive attitude to easily dispel any distractions that come into your mind.
Remember, when your mind wanders, a simple, “oh well” will allow you to come back to your mantra and therefore refocus your meditation exercises.

If you remember correctly from our earlier chapters, there are many benefits to Transcendental Meditation.
If you will be practising this type of meditation for any purpose, you should still clear your mind of all of those thoughts prior to getting started otherwise it may not actually work well for you.

You should also remember our information about Transcendental Meditation in how it relates to your health. This type of mediation is the most profound type of meditation in the way of relaxation and health and mental benefits.

Meditation and yoga have been a subject matter which I have been practicing on a daily basis for several years now.

I came about this through a life changing accident in New Zealand in 2010 this changed my way of thinking and has led me on the spiritual path.

Anyone can learn to connect with their soul if they put some time into the practice. This is something you can do in your own meditations but just be aware that it gets easier with practice and you will get better at it with meditative practice, so don’t be discouraged if you are not successful in the beginning of doing this. I wasn’t very effective in the beginning either. You start by getting in a good quiet state of meditation where you feel internally connected with your inner being.

Once you understand that your life at this moment is part of a much larger continuum than the few decades you will inhabit this body, you open yourself to the high calling and noble journey of cooperatively joining with your soul in its evolution.
