Meditation is one of my favourite law of attraction tools. It can instantly improve your mood and help you manifest what you want in life. And, it’s free! You can meditate almost anywhere, but when you’re just starting out you’ll want to practice in a comfortable, quite place. This way you can connect with your mind and the universe. Today, I’ll like to share some basic meditation manifestation tips to help you create a better life!
When I’m feeling anxious, overwhelmed or out of sorts, I take a mini break and spend a few minutes meditating. You don’t have to spend 20 minutes in meditation. A few minutes will do!
In yesterday’s blog post, I introduced you to the difference between physical and mental clutter. It’s this mental type that people often overlook when considering what’s keeping them from experiencing calm; however, mental clutter can have a huge impact on your overall emotional state.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to a practice that is known to tame the overwhelm of your mind and re-focus your energy on attracting positive things.
Meditation can do just that, and it offers numerous benefits for your brain and your overall well-being. Let’s take a look.
Meditation is a practice in which you work to still the mind and to concentrate only on the present moment. It can take a number of forms such as guided imagery, mindfulness meditation, breathing exercises, and more.
No matter which form it takes, the main point of such exercises is to focus attention, eliminating distractions and intrusive thoughts. This practice has been in use by various cultures for thousands of years, which is proof to me that it is effective and useful.
Some cultures consider meditation to be a part of their religion, and it can be a very spiritual activity in general.
These days, people usually meditate in an attempt to overcome the stress and anxiety associated with the modern world. It has the power to lead to a tranquil state and overall improved well-being when done regularly.
Benefits of Meditation
Meditation offers a wide range of benefits. Many of these are directly related to the practitioner’s state of mind, but the practice can also improve physical health.
The effects are long-lasting. You’ll find yourself feeling calmer and noting improvements in your physical well-being long after your meditation session ends.
Meditation helps to diminish the mental overload that can overwhelm you, leading to less stress. This renewed state can often provide you with clarity when it comes to the issues you face throughout your life.
Meditation is an ancient technique that can benefit you mentally, physically, and spiritually. Its many advantages include:
✴ Stress relief

✴ More energy
✴ Increased motivation to work toward your goals ✴ Better relationships
✴ A heightened feeling of well-being

Health benefits of meditation include decreased depression symptoms, lessened anxiety, reduction in chronic pain, improved sleep, and less frequent tension headaches, among others.
Meditation can even reduce stress-related conditions, like high blood pressure, and physical ailments like pain and disease.
How To Prepare For Meditation Manifestation
Peaceful atmosphere. A peaceful atmosphere is essential to a positive meditation experience. Create an atmosphere that is quiet, calm, and comfortable. Turn down your lights, turn off your phone, and put on soft music or music with meditative mantras. I’ll link my current favourite below.
Choose music that creates a sense of calm, because music can play an important role in setting a reflecting and contemplating mood.
This magic mantra reverses negative energy and turns it into positive! I listen to it every day and can feel myself breathing out the negative energy and breathing in positivity. Focus on that. I also connect with the universe, asking for guidance, happiness, opportunities and faith. I find this mantra so powerful for meditation manifestation!
Props. The use of certain props can aid help you meditate. Cushions and yoga mats, for example, will provide you a comfortable sitting area for greater peace and enjoyment during your meditation. Portable water fountains and candles can also help create a comfortable and relaxing environment.
Comfortable clothing. Comfort is important when it comes to meditating. Choose clothing and accessories that are loose-fitting and light on your body.
Sit up straight. Slouching may be comfortable for a couple of minutes, but it takes more strength than you think to support poor posture. Sit up straight and let your skeleton support your weight.
It’s all about the breath. Your breath connects you to the moment and helps to keep your mind focused. The breath isn’t something to be focused on intensely, rather it acts as an anchor to maintain awareness of the present.
Rhythmic breathing. Each breath should be slow, easy, even, and deep. Inhale and exhale in this manner for at least ten breaths or three minutes.
Count if necessary. If you’re struggling to maintain awareness of your breath, count your breaths. Count each inhalation until you’ve reached five and then start over.
Say ‘om’. “Om” is the sacred syllable. Utter it silently with each inhale and audibly with each exhale. This helps you quiet your mind and release distracting thoughts.
Detached observation. Here, you will detach your body and mind. Observe your mind from a detached point of view without criticism or judgment. Gradually, your mind will begin to cease its activities.
Acknowledge thoughts but avoid dwelling on them. All thoughts should be treated the same. They’re just phenomena passing through. Let them go and return your attention to the breath.
Don’t be concerned about your hands. Just place your hands comfortably on your lap. Allowing your hands to be lower can eventually pull down on the shoulders and become uncomfortable.
Meditate. Meditate on anything that moves you. Let your mind go there. With the world quiet around you, and your mind quiet, you can reach new heights in your thinking during meditation while also calming yourself.
• Envision the life you want to live in every detail, including as many of the senses as possible, then feel the positive emotions that go along with it – joy, happiness, pride, gratitude, and more. Enjoy this vision as if it’s happening now, not in the future.
• If you wish to inhibit pain, let your pain go and feel your body surge with perfect, pain-free health.
• Enjoy your meditation to its fullest.
Start slowly. Just a couple of minutes is enough to start. There are two good reasons for this. It’s easier to be compliant when you only have to sit for three minutes at a time. It’s also challenging to meditate for an extended period of time if you’re not experienced.
Use a timer. Without a timer, you’ll find yourself worrying about the time and continue to peek at the clock. Set a reliable timer and you won’t be as preoccupied with the time.
Increase your meditation time by 5 minutes each week. Avoid the temptation to progress too quickly. Ideally, you’ll look forward to your meditation sessions. Progressing too quickly causes restlessness and agitation.
Take every opportunity to meditate. Meditating at home under perfect conditions is great practice, but the ultimate goal is to have the ability to meditate anywhere. A skilled meditator can meditate on a 99-degree packed, loud, smelly, subway.
Be persistent. If you’re meditating each day with the full intention of improving, you’ll eventually become a skilled meditator.
Be patient. It seems like it should be easy to concentrate for a few minutes, but the mind likes to stay busy. It’s a challenging habit to break. Be patient.
Use this time to connect with the universe. Allow yourself to feel that connection and give all your negative thoughts and worry to the universe as you begin to practice meditation manifestation. Practice grateful thoughts by thinking of every little and big think you have to be thankful for! And have faith that everything you need is on its way.
