Meditation For Mindfulness

Meditation for MindfulnessMindfulness in your everyday life is a nice way to rest your sences, and meditation for mindfulness is a good way to get there. To be mindful of what you are doing in the present moment sounds easy, but it really takes some practice before you can master it. Mastering mindfulness means to constantly think of what you are doing, wether its cleaning or doing the dishes. When you practice mindfulness, everyday chores can become meaningful and a lot less boring because you see them as a child sees them.

Breathing to be mindful

The simplest way to start practising mindfulness is by following your breath and counting the length of it or just thinking; I’m breathing in, I’m breathing out. You can do this while you are walking and use your steps to keep track of the length of your breaths.

The importance of everything

Mindfulness makes you aware of your place in the Universe, that you are an important part of creation, but also that you are just as insignificant as everything else. Nothing is going to last forever and everything is eternal. When you get to the point of knowing this, you also know that fighting and wars are a complete waste of time. Being angry at your neighbors or someone who has a different belief system is of no importance, just enjoy your life and what you have here. Love everyone and hate no one.

This is of course easier said than done, but if you love thy enemy, imagine how bevildered he will get…. 😉

If you want to learn more about meditation I have written about it in a blog post where I review a book called The Miracles of Mindfullness, which I highly recommend.

  1. Within Eastern philosophy and meditation in particular, mindfulness is one of the most scientifically validated practices. It actually works, even for skeptics! This is something that I am currently trying to master and you’re right, it does take some work. I hadn’t thought of it before as seeing things “like a child sees them.” I love that image – just noticing things in the present in all their beauty as if we have never seen them before. Lovely article, I look forward to more on mindfulness. Keep up the great work! Angie

    1. Thank you Angie! Yes, mindfulness does work and the effects are so profound. Noticing how you get more at peace with things that could drive you up the walls earlier is nice, and when you also start to feel a difference in your body it gets really fascinating. Regards, Kristina

    1. Thank you Randy! oh yeah, it works, and it is fun too! 😉 Breathing practices is great, it helps to keep you calm and it sooths pain, and it makes you healthier in many ways.
      Keep breathing! Kristina

  2. Hi Kristina,

    I love your posts and this one certainly brings home the reason why.
    I agree – living in the ‘Now’ is at first a considerable challenge, you do not even realize how incredibly active and venturous your mind is until you try this.

    Thank you Kristina and I look forward to reading more here.

    Blessings Be,

    1. Hi Rich,

      Thank you! I think meditation is such a wonderful tool when you need to wind down, and doing it this way is quite a challenge in the beginning.

      Blessings, Kristina

  3. This article is so timely for me. I have just started meditating on the recommendation of a friend, and I am enjoying it immensely.

    The next logical step seems to be Mindfulness, and living in the moment. It seems to me like when you are totally absorbed in a great movie. Shouldn’t the moments of our lives be that absorbing to us, all of them. We are only going around once.

    Thank you, I will be back.

    1. Thank you! Meditation is such a wonderful practise and it is really good for us in every way. Mindfulness helps us stay happy in the moment, rather than constantly dwelling on what has happened in the past or what might go wrong in the future.

      You are more than welcome back!
      Namaste, Kristina
