It’s no secret that the power of meditation has many benefits that will help you improve your daily life. Going through a divorce is stressful, often unhealthy, and it can be traumatic. Utilizing the practice of meditation through your divorce can be life changing. If you don’t already meditate, learning to meditate can help you to get a grasp on your divorce and yourself. When going through a divorce it’s easy to react without thinking about it. Meditation will help you to become more mindful of the situation and everyone that is involved in it. Sometimes people forget that when they go through a divorce it doesn’t just affect them. They may have children it affects, or sometimes even close family members. It’s important that we take the time to create a healthy mindset so that we can live the best life that we can live and make the process of divorce less stressful than it needs to be.

Learning how to Meditate

Meditation requires a huge amount of discipline – it takes times. You need to fully commit to this all-natural life changing medicine understanding like any actual medicine that it takes time to work in your system. There are many ways you can go about meditation. When you think about meditation you probably think about sitting Indian style on the floor with your eyes closed humming some calming tune. And yes, that is one of the standard ways to meditate. But there are so much more. You can lay down while you meditate, you can listen to guided meditation to help you keep your thoughts on track (this is recommended for beginners), or you can use a guided sleep meditation where you fall asleep listening to a guide that will take over your subconscious while you sleep. The whole idea of meditation is to put your mind in a state of calmness and peace where you can get in touch with your inner subconscious mind who makes the decisions for your conscious mind.

When you first start meditating you may be shocked at how unruly your mind is – Especially while going through a divorce. This is completely normal. We need to learn to take control of our minds which is what meditation is all about. Here are the basics of meditation:

  1. Posture

Whether you sit on a chair, cross-legged on the floor, or you are lying down make sure that your spine is aligned with your head. If you are slumped your mind will drift. Mind and body are intertwined. If your body is well-balanced, your mind will also be in balance.

  1. Eyes

Open eyes allow you to be more present. However, it’s important to do what is comfortable for you. Some people find closing their eyes much more effective.

  1. Focus

To focus in meditation means to pay soft attention to whatever you place in the center of awareness. – focus on your breath.

  1. The breath

Paying attention to the natural wave of your breath is a wonderful way to anchor yourself in the present moment.

  1. Time

Start with 10 minutes and only sit longer if you feel the length is too short. Don’t force yourself to meditate longer if you are not ready to do that. In time, you might like to extend your meditation to 25 minutes. Always do what feels right and most of all just enjoy the time you’re spending with yourself, getting to know yourself and your feelings.
