Meditation can be daunting. Especially when you think you have to be able to sit for 30 minutes or more with a still mind and a painless body. But this is not what most people experience and it is not the goal of meditation.
Most people, when meditating, feel an aching body and a restless mind, and therefore, they stop practising. Here Yin Yoga and Reiki can help!
Like in non-guided seated meditation, you want to become still in a yin yoga pose, whilst in silence passively observing the breath, the sensations of the body and the thoughts that come and go. Not reacting nor identifying with whatever arises. But instead of 30 minutes of sitting meditation, you stay 5 to 10 minutes in the pose. This shorter period is a great preparation for the body and mind to get used to sitting still and not reacting, just observing. Additionally, when combined with Reiki, the feeling of the energy flowing makes your mind calm down and relax and induces you into a state of presence and meditation.
Meditation is not about not having thoughts or no physical sensations, meditation is a state of presence. It has 3 main components, stopping, observing, and accepting. When practised regularly, we start living in this particular state of presence and our relationships, health, creativity, patience, and joy benefit from it.
