2 Simple Meditation Techniques | Focused Attention and Open Monitoring

If you are learning how to meditate, there are two simple meditation techniques that you can use. These are the go to meditation methods to develop your practice.

In “open monitoring meditation” you begin to practice “awareness of thinking.” To practice this form of simple meditation, you become aware of your thoughts and feelings in order to observe them without attachment.

This simple meditation technique is perfect for a morning meditation to help clear the mind and make room for creative, motivated, and inspired thought.

Focused attention meditation is often considered an easier approach due to the clear intention that is being applied. This involves focusing on one thing and one thing only.

This can be a candle, a plant, a buddha, or anything that will hold your attention. Object meditation, traditionally referred to as Tratak Meditation, is a very popular form of this style.

This simple meditation technique is practiced by focusing on a candle.
