My type of Meditation - Meditative and Mind-body Spiritual Exercise Techniques.
If one is to be a factor to affect change in this world so that it will be more peaceful, one must first change oneself. It is not easy to either change the world in a strong way, or to change oneslef in a strong way. One does have to make a really serious effort in order to do this.
In order to change oneself one has to reach deep inside oneself and affect ones inner being and be able to mobilize ones emotions in a way as to direct oneself on a better path. Meditation, meditative exercises, and mind-body exercises can help one to have an impact on ones inner being so as to reprogram it.
All forms of meditation or meditative techniques involve controlled hyperventilation, which give the body more oxygen, and removes more carbon dioxide from the blood in the form of carbonic acid which results in the blood becoming more alkaline and has a relaxing affect. Tension in the stomach area tends to help one to breath more intensely helping one to get into a meditative state.
To meditate just get in a comfortable position, close your eyes if it will help you focus, breath deeply, tensing your stomach muscles when breathing in and relaxing your stomach muscles when breathing out, while focusing on what emotions are affecting you. One can also while meditating focus on a positive vision, or on affecting things or people in a positive way psychically, or on becoming more at one or connected spiritually to the world around you. While meditating, one can squeeze ones hands and move ones feet, both alternately in rhythm with ones breathing to put more of ones whole body into the meditation and to create more oneness and intensity to it. One can be creative in how you do this and find what works best for you.
One can do slow meditative walking, fast meditative walking, and a mind-body type run with all having basically the same technique. They all involve small steps, a slight side to side motion helping one to get ones feet down more quickly, breathing in with one step and out with the next, and trying to use ones muscles that propel the legs forward a lot which tends to creat tension in the stomach area. They also can involve squeezing ones hands when ever the arm is in the forward position. One can even crouch slightly when doing them in order to increase their intensity. One can be creative in how you do them. One can focus on any emotions that are affecting you while doing any of these exercises.
Slow meditative walking involves slow careful cat-like movement with emphasis on precision. Fast meditative walking involve quicker feet movement, a faster pace, and is a little aerobic. The mind-body run involves a really quick feet movement. They all should rev up your nervous system helping them to have a mind-body component to them. They all use the same techniques listed in the paragraph above. Like any form of exercise one needs to get use to them as to frequency, duration, and intensity.
One may not last long or move that fast, but that is not important. I last 7 minutes doing the mind-body run, and 10 minutes doing the fast meditative walk before not being unable to do them anymore. One can do a slow meditative walk at the end of ones fast meditative walk or mind-body run. These exercises can be tough or quite challenging to do and can put one in a tough state of mind. But, in order to get really strong spiritually and be able to change oneself in a way that will be strong enough to maintain the change it takes quite a bit of effort which can be quite difficult. Things of value do not come easily.
One can also do stretching and some weightlifting focusing also on breathing intensely. It helps to be careful about ones diet and how much protein one gets in order to handle these exercises well. I take lots of nutritional supplements inorder to keep my body functioning well.
