A Must-Have Beginner’s Guide
Since I was a teenager, I’ve had a deeper understanding of meditation than most. I don’t say that to sound conceited, but just to give you a better understanding of my experience prior to having read this book. I have read numerous guides, watched numerous tutorials, and have studied up on the science behind meditation.
great advice positive quotes and thoughts
Received this book for free to give my honest review. I enjoyed reading this book even though I may not fully get into it or practice it the book had a lot of tips I can still follow ad well as very great quotes one quote I enjoyed is Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest. —Sri Chinmoy, The Goal Is Won I feel like that is a great quote and it would be great to follow believe it would take a lot off your chest. That is what I liked most there was a lot of great tips to help shed some stress, hatred, grudges, worries off my chest without really even being into the whole mediation process it is still great to read to give you some positive thoughts and quotes and ways to cope. Another part of the book I thought was good advice is when it said “holding a grudge is like drinking poison and believing it’s going to kill your enemy ” just good advice in this book that is very true don’t hold a grudge it will hurt you more then your enemy. I suggest this book to anyone not just someone who wants to practice meditation because it does give you a lot of advice and very positive quotes and will help you even if you don’t meditate.
Easy read with great tips on building meditation into your daily life
As someone who is trying to really incorporate meditation into my daily life, I can really appreciate that this book has a multitude of offerings on how to work in meditation into your daily life in just about 10 minutes. I received a copy of this e-book in exchange for my honest opinion. My opinions remain both mine and honest. I really enjoyed this book – it was an easy read and had a lot of thought provoking ideas that have really helped me connect more with myself both on the inner peace side of things and overall spirituality. I did find it was a bit heavy on the anecdotes and at times, that felt a bit much, but the overall feeling and vibe of a positive life with meditation was there and I really liked that. I liked the imagery of the soles of my feet kissing the ground and the intimacy that this thought evoked for me and how I had never connected that idea together before – it was humbling and really did give me a new level of self awareness. I think this is a good read for anyone looking to find more mechanisms for coping with busy schedules but needing to find that inner “me” time to really destress and re-engage with youself.
A great gateway to really relaxing
I’m wasn’t what you’d call the meditative type. I tend to be more proactive with things, not one to let things sit idly by. I assumed that’s what meditation was about, a zen state where things simply rolled off you, and things just passed you by. Instead what this book showed me was that meditation is about tuning in to the background sounds of life, enhancing one’s concentration, getting in touch with the essence of others, and helping one get the most out of relaxation in between life’s madness.Meditation Now is for beginners (like me) as well as meditative pros who want to get back in touch with the basics. I found a lot to like in the book from beginning to end
I have always wanted to start meditating and this book was the perfect start. Reading the book itself is very peaceful. It includes quotes that relate to meditation. It also clears up any questions or concerns that one may have about meditation. Before delving deep into the meditation tips, it describes all of the basic facts that you would need to know before choosing to begin meditating.
An Awesome Read for Beginning Meditation!
I absolutely enjoyed this eBook, especially since I’m a work-at-home, homeschooling mama of 3! I knew I would be able to take a lot away from this book. The writing style is very smooth and as I’m reading it, the voice in my head is very soothing as it walks me through the meditation techniques. I actually almost fell asleep during the first meditation method, Basic 1-Minute Meditation, because I was so relaxed. There are different methods in this ebook to help you find the time and place to meditate. You can start out at 1 minute, which includes counting your breathing (inhaling/exhaling), and it seems basic enough but it so relaxed me. I have a hard time falling asleep without my phone or Kindle in my face so I read this eBook at night, tried out the 1 min. mediation method and was asleep soon after!
Meditation is a good form of self relaxation
Meditation is a good form of self relaxation. There are many ways to meditate. Through breathing and mind exercises you can achieve full body and mind relaxation. This book includes 18 meditation techniques that are truly helpful. There are 32 different types of meditation discussed, including directions on how to begin each type, to see what works best for you. This book teaches you the proper ways to clear your mind of atmospheric interruptions, the importance of using a mantra, and about movement meditations such as Qigong, Hatha yoga and Tai Chi. There is much more to meditation than one thinks.
Great way to start meditation!
A great starting point for anyone that is interested in Meditation. With my Autistic daughter, getting a few moments of clarity can be very hard. I have been wanting to look into ways to relax when things are chaotic, so I was very happy when I found this book. It goes over all the reasons you should meditate as well as how to start meditating. It also talks about the best ways to get rid of certain kinds of stress and the best places to meditate during your normal and already hectic schedule.
A Must Read For a Beginner
I have never been able to mediate because, well, I just can’t relax or so I thought. I am in love with this book. Not only is it super easy to follow and do the 10 minute exercises, but it is helpful for those that really don’t understand mediation. I have learned how to channel my “inner self” and not repress it. With simple thoughts and exercises this book can help you on your journey to relax.
Wonderful Book for Beginner Meditators!
Meditation Now: 10 Minut Meditations to Restore Calm and Joy Anytime, Anywhere is an awesome book for the beginner meditator. Not only does it start you out with techniques to use, it also addresses the problems you may have with meditating for the first time (distractions, posture, comfort, etc.). It’s a very comfortable, un-intimidating book that is really easy to read, and even easier to understand.
