ultimate brain hacking: MEDITATION - but which one?

any people who are meditating ?

I think everybody by now knows ho beneficial and great and good and useful and helpful and healing meditation can be.

problem is I still havent found out this 'special type of meditation' that actually can be learned by most people in western world. there are so many.

but the thing with meditation is plain and simply: to slow down the huge speed rate of thinking, or overthinking as so many people have in the world. I even discovered when people 'go crazy' or 'delirium' or going insanse: its just simply that their thinking, excessive overthinking just went wrong. too much.

like an engine that worked too much: too hot, explosion.

I have tried to meditate with an MANTRA, as they say in India, but really: got bored and didnt work out after some time.

  • I've been Meditating for about 3 years now. Here are some guided meditation resources that I've found useful:

    https://www.headspace.com/ (paid app, but the 10 minutes for 10 days is free)

    "Mindfulness in Plain English" is one of the best books on the subject.

    Teachers worth investigating: Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, Jon Kabat Zinn, Tara Brach, and Gil Fronsdal.

  • thank u very much ! I WILL CHECK IT OUT ! CANT WAIT !

  • I know a lot about this. My recommendation is Michael Domeyko Rowland. if you do a google search for him, join up to his email list, it is well worth it. His system of meditation is the one I use, which is a whole body energetic method that raises you out of the grip of the conscious mind, with all of its subpersonalities and subconscious memories, and into a higher part of your mind, called the Superconscious.

    The simple and extremely effective meditation is concentration meditation -- this will lead to absorption, jhanas and altered mind states.

  • ever seen that movie the Dhamma brothers? from Oprah too? I read u can join for FREE, but I dont know any meditation centers here where I live, I DO know Vipassana is everywhere in the world, I only wonder how they can finance it without paying for it, people give charity to how much they want?

  • Because I have serious attention and focusing issues, I simply focus on my breathing, either at nostrils or abdomen. I often try and count up to 10, but rarely can I do so. Even after practicing at least 1/2 hour/day, I don't see my practice deepening - as in never being able to get to the count of 10 very often. Wondering if i should switch to a different type or if this is still having benefit?

    Hi Eliee66

    getting to 10 doesn't matter in the least, the point of counting is only to give you an anchor so you don't float in the stream of thoughts. So if you count 1 then 2 and drift off just gently bring yourself back to 1 and start again.. using only one number is as effective as counting to 10, so you can count 1, 1 , 1 and 1 with each exhale .. The point of counting as I said is only to help you not get caught in your thoughts or physical sensations.. after you do it for a while you can let the count go and just watch your breath come into and out of your nose...

    Good Luck
