Your subconscious mind and meditation using a mantra

Federico Racchi has an interesting blog and an article entitled ‘How to Train your Subconscious Mind’.

In the section concerning training the subconscious mind via meditation he says;

“Meditation is one of the best ways to learn to focus your mind while increasing your awareness. Meditation is not only an effective way of training your subconscious mind it also has excellent health and stress relieving benefits. Practising meditation does not require you to undergo special training or acquiring complex skills. It is a simple practice that can be performed in the comfort of your own home in as little as ten minutes a day.

There are many different ways to perform meditation but one of the easiest is to simply find a comfortable, quiet place where you will not be disturbed.Start by simply observing your breathing and allowing your body to relax. Then repeat either in your mind or out loud what is called a mantra. This is a single word or phrase, one of the most popular mantra’s being either “Ohm” or “One”.

Keep repeating your mantra for between 5 – 10 minutes. If thoughts enter your mind, note them, and then allow them to drift away. Over time try to increase your meditation training so that you are practising for at least 15 – 20 minutes each day. As you continue to practice meditation you should find that you have an increased sense of both yourself and your surroundings. This is part of the process of you becoming more attuned to your subconscious.”

In addition to mantra meditation Frederico suggests a combination with creative expression of some kind.
