Baltimore, MD – It was recently reported that Robert W. Coleman Elementary in West Baltimore will be taking a new and holistic approach to disciplining students. Instead of punishing them or sending them to the principal’s office, administrators will now be sending children to “the mindful moment room” where they will be able to meditate and wind down.

The new policy has been in place for over a year, and in the time that the meditation room has been set up, there has actually been no suspensions throughout the entire year.

The program is an initiative organized by the Holistic Life Foundation, a Baltimore-based nonprofit organization committed to nurturing the wellness of children and adults in underserved communities.

Andres Gonzalez, one of the organizers of the project, says that children are even bringing home what they are learning to their families.

“That’s how you stop the trickle-down effect, when Mom or Pops has a hard day and yells at the kids, and then the kids go to school and yell at their friends,” he says. “We’ve had parents tell us, ‘I came home the other day stressed out, and my daughter said, Hey, Mom, you need to sit down. I need to teach you how to breathe,‘” Gonzalez said.

There are many advantages to meditation, which are now being confirmed by scientific studies. We have learned through scientific research that meditation can relieve pain, enhance creativity, relieve stress and boost immune systems. In 1998, a breakthrough study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, by a DR. Dean Ornish showed that meditation can actually reverse heart disease. This study lasted for over 5 years and involved various control groups that all had coronary artery disease, and only one of these groups practiced meditation. Amazingly the group that practiced meditation had actually managed to reverse the effects of the illness.

The consistent application of bringing one’s attention to the present moment is key to any form of meditation. This means that nearly any experience can be meditative. A bike ride, a walk under the stars, writing poetry, or any practice that offers individual quiet time within your own heart and mind can be considered a form of meditation.

Over time, various teachers organized their specific meditation practices into cohesive styles and philosophies, each with its own instructions and insights. Around the 5th and 6th centuries BCE, Confucian and Taoist meditations appear in China, and Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist meditations developed in India.

These various schools of meditation taught different methods for remaining in the present moment, some involving the counting of breaths, contemplative thought, or repeating sacred words and sounds known as Mantras.

There are also different types of meditation positions. Some schools practice sitting cross-legged (“lotus” or “half lotus”), walking, or lying down meditation. You also may have noticed that certain traditions will feature symbolic hand gestures and positions during their meditation. These are known as mudras and are found in Hindu and Buddhist practices. People also meditate for different reasons. Most people would say that meditation can be a religious or spiritual experience, while others find it to be a helpful relaxation and anger management tool.

In this one Baltimore school, the powers of living in the present are coming to fruition.

merkaba meditation energyIn this article I will share with you everything that you need to know to start meditating. I will guide you step by step through the meditation process, and I can assure you that after you finish reading this post you will know how to meditate.

Let’s begin!

You will have to identify some essential things about you and your daily habits. You have to find yourself a place where you can sit undisturbed so you can perform your Merkaba meditation daily. Remember, you will have to meditate day after day. To obtain the full benefits from meditation, it is important to include the meditation practice in your daily routine, as a habit. Include meditation in your daily program before you drink your coffee or you brush your teeth. Making out of meditation a daily habit will influence you in every aspect. It is also good to meditate at the same hour daily, and not one day at 7 am and the next day at 7 pm. If this is clear for you, now search for a relaxing and quiet place. You need to feel completely relaxed, it doesn’t matter so much the position that you take. You can sit in the lotus position, or simply in a chair, with your back straight and your hands on your knees. It`s important to feel relaxed and conscious.

It’s good to meditate early in the morning. Only 10 minutes of meditation are enough, but you need to know when these 10 minutes of meditation will end, you can use a timer or something like this, but the sound of the timer has to be as quite as possible because it doesn’t have to scare you. I recommend using a simple beep sound.

You are in a quiet and relaxing place, the position is set, you’re feeling comfortable, the timer is prepared, now start closing your eyes, slowly. Take some deep breaths, inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth.

Observe yourself from a different point of view; visualize yourself from an outside source. Try to feel what’s happening with your body, feel how your skin touches your clothes, feel the palms of your hands on your knees. Observe yourself. Analyze your whole body; start observing all of the annoying and relaxing things around you, just acknowledge them without trying to intervene in any way. Even if you observe the things which are bringing you discomfort, don’t change them. It’s enough to be aware of your feelings.  After 20-30 seconds of body awareness, start directing your attention to your mind, to your thoughts. Do the same as with your body, just observe all of your thoughts, positive or negative, and don’t eliminate any of them. After you pass these steps, realize the fact that you are now meditating. Now your mind is in a state of peace, stop analyzing things, enjoy the moments of clarity, enjoy these moments of being there. If you’re not in that peaceful state, think at the fact that you have some minutes for you, exclusively for you. In these 10 minutes nobody needs your help and you don’t need the help of anybody. Think at the fact that you don`t have any worries and these minutes are only for relaxation; this will calm you. And if in these moments, you feel that your mind is trying to return to reality, focus your attention on breathing, but don`t change anything, just observe.

Just be there with all of your being and simply enjoy these peaceful moments. Doing all of these things you can really say that you have learned how to meditate. It doesn’t matter what happens now, maybe you feel completely relaxed, maybe some thoughts are walking through your mind; let them be there; enjoy these seconds.

The way you leave the meditation state is very important. Before you open your eyes, think about all of the things that you want to do next. For example, if you need to prepare the coffee, think about your way to the workplace and slowly open your eyes. In this manner, you will maintain these meditation feelings, and you will continue the day by making the coffee or another morning habit, still having those good feelings. By ending your merkaba meditation process in this manner, your entire day will change; you will be followed by positive and good thoughts all day long if you’re lucky. It’s beneficial to remember some moments of your meditation during the day, for example, the moments in which you felt relaxed and fulfilled. This will cheer you up.

With all of these things being said, you now have all of the important information about how to meditate correctly; the rest is up to you!
