3 Types of Meditation and How to Do Them:

Before choosing a specific type of meditation, the first step is deciding whether you’re looking for guided or unguided meditation:
• Guided meditation. An instructor talks you through the process. This is especially helpful for beginners.
• Unguided meditation. There’s no instructor, and you’re free to choose your own pace and methods.
Here is breakdown of different meditation techniques to help you get started.

  1. Focused breathing
    Focused breathing involves sitting quietly and focusing on your breath.
    “Just by watching the breath, not only will it start to slow, but the pause between the inhales and exhales will start becoming longer and longer,” says Kimberly Snyder, spiritual and meditation teacher and author of “You Are More Than You Think You Are.”
    “It is in these gaps where you can start to connect to the deepest parts of yourself. In the gap is peace.”
    A 2017 review Trusted Source shows that slow breathing can positively impact your heart, respiratory system, and autonomic nervous system, which controls heart rate and digestion.
    How to do it
    Here is an adaptation of a meditation practice from Snyder’s book:
  2. Take a comfortable seat, keeping your spine straight.
  3. Observe the natural inhale and exhale of your breath.
  4. Start to pay extra attention to the gaps — the spaces between your inhales and exhales. Notice them start to expand.
  5. Try to keep your body very still and breathe softly.
  6. If your mind wanders, come back to simply observing the breath.
  7. Box breathing
    Box breathing can help in those moments when stress takes over and you need an immediate way to relax your mind and body. The beauty of this type of meditation is you can do it anytime, anywhere.
    “Box breathing is especially great for those who [deal] with intense, physical responses to anxiety and stress,” says Amanda Huggins, anxiety and mindfulness coach. “The intent of this practice is to stimulate the vagus nerve, which helps to lower the heart rate and bring the body out of the fight-or-flight response.”
    How to do it
  8. Inhale for 4 seconds.
  9. Hold the breath for 4 seconds.
  10. Exhale for 4 seconds.
  11. Hold the breath for 4 seconds.
    Repeat 12 to 15 times or more as needed, and don’t skimp on the “holds.” Those gentle pause points between inhalations and exhalations help cue the nervous system into relaxing.
  12. Anxiety relief meditation
    Using the power of visualization and deep breathing, anxiety relief meditation can relax the central nervous system through deep breathing.
    “A visualization meditation that does double duty for anxious-minded folks: not only is it a fantastic way to self-soothe, it offers a safe way to dialogue with the anxious mind,” says Huggins.
    How to do it
    Here’s a step-by-step meditation recommended by Huggins:
  13. Find a comfortable position.
  14. As you close your eyes, place one hand on your heart and one hand low on your belly. Breathe deeply, and notice how it feels to offer yourself supportive physical touch. Stay here for a few cycles of breath.
  15. With eyes still closed, ask yourself: “Where in my body am I holding this anxiety?” Focus on that part of your body.
  16. In your mind, assign a color, shape, or texture to the anxiety.
  17. Keeping the visual in your mind’s eye, draw the attention back to breath.
  18. Focus now on your exhalations. With every breath out, visualize the anxiety leaving your body.
  19. Ask yourself: “What do I need in this moment?” This is a place to feel into your inner guidance, rather than to think through it.
  20. Stay with the meditative reflection for as long as you need to feel complete.


Hi friends, I would like to share the experience about my practice for the Third eye awakening.

I had no knowledge about the third vision, as I was not from a spiritual background. I was a devotee of Lord Ganesha and my Guru Shivanand Dadaji had promised me that one day I will be able to see him.

Although this was unbelievable for me, but my father wanted me to try for this and I started as per my Guru’s guidance.

It took about an year for me to awaken my Third eye, but it took 6 months for my younger sister and a month for my Mother. May be because they were powerful devotee of Guru Shivanand Dadaji. The duration depends from people to people.

Praying reconditions the mind and helps us gain control of it.

But there is a specific way in which we must pray to allow this process to happen.

We must become aware that our thoughts and feelings are not our own, we are like filters, empty vessels filtering passing thoughts.

These thoughts are mainly coming in through the hands, so a simple technique to block these intruding thoughts is to bring your hands together in a praying position.

This ensures that we are not taking in thoughts of the world but rather the thoughts which are within our heart.

Keep your hands like this in times of stress and frustration, you will notice your thoughts and feelings change, you may also notice a new vantage point while observing your dreams while you sleep.

Noticing how you are not within the drama inside your head , but rather above observing it.

Next close your eyes and silently pray to yourself, imagine an image of Jesus interceding and notice how your focus is brought into your mind, as if something keeps passing by your eyes while they are closed.

Initial symptoms of praying are headaches, pressure in the head, depressing thoughts, heartache etc, but as time goes on the mind and heart open up and praying becomes more enjoyable, where visions of a bright new future begin to enter the mind through dreams.

We need to understand that our whole head is against us from the day we were born and God knows this and that anything wrong we have done unconsciously was not our fault.

The devil which runs this world is running around in fear and doubt every day passing this on to every individual, the minute we begin to pray we block these thoughts of the world out.

While breaking down the action of praying we can see two main elements at play here, sound and visualisation.

These two factors are common within spiritual practice, where practitioners add visualisation techniques and sounds in the form of mantras to recondition the mind, bringing them back into that deep well of consciousness which we all belong to.

For if we are conscious, then the infinite awareness which we can tap into while praying and meditating is infinitely conscious.

One meditation technique observed which is similar to praying is transcendental meditation, notice this word here “transcend-dental”, dental meaning the mouth and vocalisation and a specific tone and sound to our practice, while visualising.

It is interesting to observe when you break practices down how similar they are.

Meditation Music & Solfeggio frequencies…

Meditation music and solfeggio frequencies aid in the practice of meditation, music with certain tones can have a profound effect on both the emotions and the body, whereas something as simple as speeding up the tempo of music can make you feel more alert while improving concentration.

Upbeat music can make you feel more optimistic and positive about life.

Slower sombre music can help your mind to quiet and aids muscle relaxation, giving you the feeling of soothing while releasing the stress of the day.

Up to date findings have shown how music played approximately at 60 beats per minute can cause the brain to synchronize with the beat causing alpha brainwaves.


Inducing alertness & focus. 

This alpha brainwave is what is present when we are relaxed and conscious.

Inducing sleep:

  • Delta brainwave – 5 hertz, for 45 minutes.
  • Relaxed position.
  • listening to calming music.

Particular frequencies have been identified and proven to be present within music, such promoters of this idea have made these claims for years.

Joseph Puleo discovered “solfeggio frequencies” in the 1970’s, by calculating a series of number sequences within Biblical passages, as it was claimed that these frequencies were “ancient” and “sacred” and were frequently used and sung.

While promoters on YouTube and among New Age websites have taken the lead of Leonard Horowitz, who has fervently promoted solfeggio frequencies throughout his studies.

Studies found suggested that certain frequencies can make a person feel a particular way, these frequencies are known as solfeggio frequencies. 

  • 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
  • 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
  • 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
  • 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
  • 741 Hz – Expression/Solutions
  • 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order


Rainbow colors assigned by Isaac Newton.

Isaac Newton had associated the seven solfège syllables with the seven colors of the rainbow and surmised that each color vibrated accordingly (a concept possibly related to the modern view of chromesthesia).

Thus, red has the least amount of vibration while violet vibrates the most.

While it is interesting to note how this colour sequence matches that seen within energy centres or chakras across the Asian continent, almost confirming how each solfeggio tone resonates with a particular energy centre within us.
