You are the kind who often reflects on thoughts and emotions. Dwelling in the stillness of the moment and aligning with your feelings is what you enjoy the most.
You will positively love how Mindful Meditation is all about observational powers and the practice of focusing on awareness of your emotions and feelings. You are the one who wants to practice self-compassion and self-kindness at all times.
If you are a creative enthusiast, filled with vibrant ideas, then this is the ideal meditation practice for you. Mantra Meditation is an approach that includes repetition of mantras or chants to increase concentration & calming intentions. So, if you are creative and words are your superpowers, then this meditation allows your monkey mind to take a backseat and reflect inwards while you chant words of relaxation.
You are someone who enjoys connecting with yourself in-depth, letting go of the past, not worrying about the future, and stripping yourself of all the expectations. Spiritual meditation is your calling. A practice of in-depth connection to a spirit that is greater and deeper than the self. This meditation helps you look beyond your chaotic atmosphere and find solace within.
You are optimistic and empathetic, and exude warmth when around other people. You are a person who boundlessly extends warm-hearted feelings. With Loving-kindness Meditation you can practice affirmation, by repeating a series of positive and compassionate statements either loudly or silently.
Loving-kindness meditation involves strengthening feelings of kindness and mentally sending warmth toward others. With this practice, you will not just extend love to yourself but to the universe as well. More compassion is coming your way and the world!
Achieving a quieter atmosphere and a peaceful state of mind are your goals at all times. You are a seeker of calm amidst the chaos. Calming Meditation is a style that will help you find relaxation and a peaceful state of mind.
In this technique, you will have to focus on one particular object at a time like a chant, your breathing, or a sensation within your body. The challenge is to pull yourself out of any kind of distraction to achieve calm.
