Meditate the Way You Enter a Hot Bath

By William T Batten

Some days, meditating is easy. Other days is seems impossible. If you're starting out, maybe every day feels like one over the other. As you become more familiar with the techniques, there are more of the good days.

It helps to know what to do when you're having a bad day, though. Maybe you're new to all of this or perhaps you've got a lot on your mind.

Life happens. You don't have to be perfect.

And thanks to one awesome technique, you barely even have to be decent.

The trick is to meditate the same way you'd enter a hot bath.

You know what I mean. You dip your toe in then recoil out immediately.

Then you go for it a second time and it doesn't seem as hard. Maybe you make it to your ankle before pulling out.

On the third try, you lower yourself in a few times.

Then you simply ease into the warm water and let it envelope you.

You can meditate this way, too. Just like with the bath, it's a lot slower but its success rate is phenomenal.

If you're trying to meditate and it's not working, that's okay.

Open your eyes. Breathe. Bring yourself back into your normal state of awareness.

Then go again.

Close your eyes, draw your attention inwards and do whatever meditation techniques you like.

And if it still doesn't work, repeat the cycle. Then repeat it again. Keep going until you're in a state of meditation.

There's a principle in hypnosis called fractionation. The idea is that bringing someone in and out of trance brings them deeper into trance. It's strange but it works. Each time they go back into trance, they go deeper and faster.

It's the same with meditation. Every time you close your eyes, it gets a little bit easier.

Think of it like a warmup. Runners stretch before exercising and this is the mental equivalent. The experience guides you to better results.

And let me tell you this:

This exercise builds your meditation skill like nothing else.

Reaching a state of meditation, even when you struggled with it, is like training with weights on. The difficult days are where you learn the most. The struggle is where you progress.

What I love about this is how friendly it is. If it's too challenging, then stop, take a break and start again. It's so effective and enjoyable that you have no excuse for not using it.

You can apply this with self-hypnosis, too. If your mental landscape becomes unstable, fractionation will bring it right back into balance. From there, you can activate your greatest emotions, skills and states of mind.

Only if you learn about how to do it first, though...

Motivation or Communication, which is more important.

Motivation is critical to increasing or at the very least maintaining productivity. Knowing how to communicate effectively in order to motivate is a skill that many leaders would like to have.

Create Your Content and Beat Writers Block: Top 7 Tips

Here are some helpful tips to help you source content for new articles:
Old Ezine Articles: This includes your archives for articles that you have sent your ezine from the past 10+ years. If you've created multiple articles for each email newsletter issue, we recommend that you break your old ezine articles into single article chunks rather than multi-topic articles. If you have large ezine articles from your email newsletter archive, consider breaking them down into 400-750 word chunks rather than 1,000-3,000 word articles.

Old Original Forum Posts: If you've been on the Internet for some time, there is a good chance you belong to a few forums that you might call yourself a "resident expert" on. All of your old forum posts that are greater than 400 words in length will make great new articles that you can put into distribution to create more traffic and sales for your business, and enhance your credibility.

Free Nulled Uber Script? No Way!!

In our world, we have two extreme sects of people, the filthy
rich and the extremely poor. The rich are wealthy to an extent
that a few thousand dollars here or there makes no difference.
The poor are those who do not even know whether they will be
able to get even one meal for the day.

As human beings, we look after the poor in our society. To do
this there are millions of charitable organizations that have
been set up like Medecins san frontiers, Bread for the world,
The Salvation Army, UNICEF, Wildlife Conservation Society etc.
These organizations help anyone ranging from humans, animals,
flora and fauna, and help look after them, be it by way of food,
medication, protection against poachers etc. However, there is
no organization that helps by providing a means of
cost-effective commuting. Would you like to be that Samaritan
and help countries where transport is a major problem?


To help understand how you can help such countrie…
