The first step to meditation is to focus on the breath. The breath and mind work in tandem, so as breath begins to lengthen, brain waves begin to calm and slow down. 1. To begin the meditation, sit comfortably in your chair with your shoulders relaxed and spine tall. In fact, many meditation masters suggest that short practice sessions are the best way to start.

In any case, what everyone agrees on is that consistency is a great help. Like Lao Tzu said, a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. The first few times you meditate, try it for a couple of minutes at a time.

When you first start, set your timer for five minutes. If it’s hard for you to stay attentive to the breath for that length of time, work on that before increasing the duration. When you are ready, begin to add one minute to your sitting time. Slowly work up to ten and then twenty minutes. Start with just 5 minutes each day.

Gradually increase the time over several weeks. When I started meditating, five minutes felt like an eternity. I now practice for 30 minutes a day, and sometimes I am surprised at how quickly it passes!

Start by taking a comfortable seat. If you’re flexible, sit cross-legged on the floor, on a meditation cushion, bolster, or blanket—with your knees resting slightly below your hips. If you’re not, sit in a chair with your feet on the floor. Gently close your eyes and begin by taking some deep breaths. Try taking a few cleansing breaths by inhaling slowly through your nose and exhaling out of your mouth.

After a few cleansing breaths, continue breathing at a normal relaxed pace through your nose with your lips gently closed. 4. 1. Start small, with three to five minutes (or less).

Some great new data collected from users of the Lift goal-tracking app* shows that most beginner. Read these steps, make sure you’re somewhere where you can relax into this process, set a timer, and give it a shot: 1) Take a seat Find a place to sit that feels calm and quiet to. Begin by taking a few slow and deep breaths — inhaling with your nose and exhaling from your mouth.

Don’t force your breathing; let it come naturally. The first few intakes of air are likely to be shallow, but as you allow more air to fill your lungs each time, your breaths will gradually become deeper and fuller. In general, the easiest way to begin meditating is by focusing on the breath — an example of one of the most common approaches to meditation: concentration.

Begin with a daily 15-minute period of sitting for meditation, and try to sit for this period once in the morning and once in the evening, so that you have two meditations each day.

Begin your meditation as usual, making the four-step transition to the breath at the nose, counting ten breaths, then following the breath until your mind is settled.

Begin by setting a timer for just one minute and then following fairly typical meditation instructions: Close your eyes or lower your gaze; put your body in a balanced, stable position; and simply focus on your breathing for a full minute.

To begin clearing your mind through basic mindfulness meditation, focus on the natural rhythm of your breathing; when thoughts come to mind, allow them to simply pass without judging or engaging them, as if they were leaves floating on a stream, and return your attention to your breathing.

  • I’m not sure if some western white fellows should be teaching meditation to be honest

    Only a Hindu or Buddhist who grew up meditating is a thought leader in this field… Please stop appropriation of Hindu culture.. Go and appropriate is-lam

  • I dreamt of him last night in my sleep. He was standing, looking at me smiling happily, luminous. I saw him on the cover of the book in the bookstore, but I never had the chance to study what he taught. Now is the time.
    He is kind and funny. I will watch him more on youtube.

  • It’s always drilled into us to keep gong and set a good regimen otherwise the bodily centered mindstream won’t let us make too much progress. I found the practices at Drukama tradition to be very beneficial this way.

  • Very good meditation. Calming, relaxing. Thank you. I would like to do more new meditation videos like that, short or longer again.

  • My anxiety has been consuming me and I need to distract myself with video games just to not have panic attacks and even going downstairs give me anxiety or going outside I’m trying to meditate to fix that if anyone could recommend the right mediation to do I’ll just use this one till thab

  • I have not tried using my position like posture to help me. I fall asleep A lot but thanks for setting the example and giving me this advice. You motivate me big time dude. I’ve got to the point where I was Consistently meditating like what you’ve said and I saw flashes of light / tears of joy. But I only watched this half way through because I was so excited about it i have hit enlightened states where I’d hit enlightenment. But I tried just now before I watched this whole video through. I fell asleep. But I was laying down / relaxed too much to where I fell asleep. But thanks for the Motivation/ Inspirational motivation

  • This yoga guide “Yοmzοzο Kena” (Google it) along with cardiovascular exercise and light weight training exercise, has made my core much stronger, much more flexible, and drop some weight. It is simple to realize and enlightening. For the creator, yoga is a way of life; it is much more than the poses. The images and illustrations are comprehensive making the poses easy to follow..

  • The problem isnt meditation with eyes shut. Thats easy….when i meditate like this…its fine.. i get no worries no issues… half sleep mode. Its the meditation informal method that where people need help. Thats when worries emotions arise.

  • он ворует…у меня нет простатита это его..гад пока не выведит -не уйдет…у меня скуттер….а что разве у мужа есть машина..хм а я пешком..

  • thanks for your video s if you ever come over to Scotland to kangyu samye ling monestry love to meet and and sit in meditation with you I love going to this place. peace to you

  • This is so helpful. I’m not new to meditating but I do get fixated on the quality of the meditation, and how I’m progressing. Actually rather impatient. This helps me let go of those false ideas. And to have a gentler, kinder approach to it and myself. Something I need.

  • Although I came to this meditation at 11am I still felt lighter and more forgiving to myself after the practice. It’s the first time I didn’t feel obstructed by my thoughts of “am I sitting properly” or “ is my back straight enough”. I actually closed my eyes the entire time and moved into what felt best for me in the moment.

  • Points I’ve learned from this video:
    1.) Start slow, much like how old cow pees, haha.
    2.) Not every meditation is the same. Embrace it.
    3.) Practice small as well, like drops of water falling into big container. In the end, it’ll accumulate.
    4.) Formal practice of meditation: plan it in your day; 10 minutes, 30 minutes, etc.
    5.) Informal practice of meditation: meditate anywhere as you go on with your day.
    6.) Let go of expectation of what sort of meditation you’ll have. That expectation itself might be problem and lead to you to stop meditating.
    7.) “I will try my best to meditate”. Use this approach when you do meditation.
    8.) “It’s okay if my meditation is not good. It’s about the practice, not the result.”
    9.) Have balance: trying your best, but also not too lose in the practice.
    10.) Meditation is impermanent. It’ll fluctuate.
    11.) In the end, it’ll be something big, steady, and endless. But until that, we must practice to get there.
    12.) Progress of meditation sometimes cannot be felt immediately. But you’ll see progress.
    13.) It’s OK to feel like you haven’t improved, though.
    14.) Don’t expect too much.
    15.) Do it bit by bit.
    16.) Do it formally and informally.
    17.) Don’t fixate your mind on the experience.
    18.) Step by step, just do your best to meditate.

  • thank you so much for your talks. I v been lucky enough to start meditation very young, at the age of 10, but every time you speak, i learn something new.

  • The cow comparisons I really like. It sounds simple, yet very wise, but still funny in a good way.
    Thank your for this video. I’m glad I’ve subscribed to you.:)

  • QUESTION:
    i really like to get lost in thought when i lie down to sleep in the evening; i am then doing the exact opposite as what he describes meditation to be: i like to think about fantasy stories, and let the trains of thought carry me away untill i fall asleep; would this habit be counterproductiver when i am trying to get into meditation for the first time in my life?
    please upvote so he can see. thank you.

  • I did one day of about 40mins, the next day about 25mins and today about 10mins, but at least I’m making effort to do it �� I feel for me, it’s more about getting to the point of doing meditation daily and when I get used to doing it daily, my meditation awareness will be longer ������ Thank you for coming into my life at this time as my teacher ������

  • im doing this for my very first time. when i do it, is it better if i do it on a soft surface or a hard surface? and is my body twitching normal for my first time? i have a slight gamers neck, so sitting up straight was a bit rough. I think my gamers neck was the cause of my body titching. any opinions/tips?

  • The best working tip from a beginner to a beginner is:

    DON’T watch the time!

    In my opinion time is just a barrier for yourself. For me is meditation something truly relaxing, and it should not be put under pressure because you want to meditate for 5 minute as hard as possible. You simply just sit down and start the session. Don’t watch the time unless you have to do something in like 10 minutes. But the experience the best feeling, you should just sit down and don’t put up a timer. Because the first time I tried it, I tried so hard to meditate 5 minutes, that I just cared about the time instead of other things.
    So please do yourself a favor and don’t watch the time. Just let yourself flow. It can be just 3 minutes or 20 minutes. It’s totally ok. Just do it as long as you want to.

  • “Consentrate on what your doing” is frequent saying we are hearing always. Sometimes we found it so difficult to consentrate hence there is so much going on in our head. That’s because of lack of meditation. We did not try to take control of our mind. Mind is controlling us. Your mind is not yours untile you can control them.

  • This guy just bullshits everyone everywhere. He learned to meditate himself through indians ved teachings and is exploiting it for his fame/ego only. He will never give a direct method only descriptions of results or confusion.

  • “it’s important to breathe through your nose”

    me who had obstructed nostrils for like my whole life
    great that’s fucking great boys ��

  • Wow man hahaha I just felt between sleep and awake.. like I could hear your voice but I was just so relaxed but at the same time I was aware.. when I came back it felt like I was coming back from a dream

  • This is fucking brilliant, and so important for the world right now. Yes, ‘favour the eternal’ as Russell says, but also remember, if you need a bit of motivation, that ultimately the eternal is all that there is.

  • I remember i forgot the housekeys and i had to wait a few hours for my mom to come. I was meditating for the 1st time and it felt like 10 minutes before my mom came

  • New to meditation. I try to do 7 minutes in the AM. I’ve been finding myself thinking about all types of stuff, things I even “forgotten” about ����‍♀️ I do receive messages/visions in my dreams but I guess that’s because I am in a more relaxed state. But I’m finding that meditation takes patience and lots of it. I can’t stand the fact social media “influencers” make meditation seem like it’s just so easy, it’s actually quite the opposite ��

  • I’m only here cause I’m extremely bored and there’s nothing to do so I might as well sit here and do nothing while focusing of something��

  • I can’t help but be shocked, I like I assume many of you clicking on these videos are looking for some kind of help. Whether it be for ourselves or for our loved ones and yet you insist on making fun of one another. I don’t know if I believe in mediation at all I’ve never tried but if you’re here like me looking to make yourself better maybe just maybe you should be kind to those who are like you trying to find their peace of mind

  • As someone who struggled with building a daily practice for a decade, YES! This is how I did it, and this is the guidance I offer anyone who asks me about meditation.

  • UM…. EXCUSE ME.. HOW THE HELL DO U HAVE GRAY HAIR, BUT NOT ONE WRINKLE AROUND YOUR EYES?.(IS THAT THE CAMERA,, OR A FAME / DIET…HAAA

  • Nice to meditate in the morning facing maple trees beyond my window… then recently Chinese bought the two (2) adjoining properties and chain sawed them off. Would have been nice to retire by the lakeside property in the old country… except i hear the gov’t intends to expropriate the same so they could build a highway over it….did they have to get into that Chinese debt trap? Where can i possibly meditate without Chinese bothering my space?

  • Russell has fast become my number 1 go to guru inspirational speaker. Amazing wisdom, and love the way he delivers the message.
    He’s totally unique and makes me laugh. Not only do I come away enlightened by his words, I come away with warmth from his demeanour and humour. ❤

  • I tried meditation and bought this crystal thing(bit like a water diviner in a spiritual sense. All of this was weird and is weird I don’t know why I seem in tune with this sort of thing. Now this crystal works by asking it questions and it spins or moves accordingly yes or no. I have this little bowl I ting to get rid of interference in the room electrical energy etc…My grandmother said this was how you do it.

    My experience of these spiritual things were always there but I never used them I went back to them to try and find some meaning.

    I first tried after I had Chinese medicine to cure a back pain that had troubled me for years when other treatment and drugs had failed to cure it I had seemed to know there is something in it like a guide was there for me trying to connect but I never listened to the message properly I still dont know what I am trying to say here lol but someone else might know. How could a few pins placed in my fingers and toes and a bit of meditation cure a pain that nothing else had? It worked though and two treatments is all it took.

    Basically I am going to give meditation more of a go there is a energy ruining through all of us and I feel mine was depleted.
    Maybe there are spiritual things that science does not recognise at odd points in my life absolute strangers have come up to me and spoken my name telling me some profound things.
    Who are these people and how do they know these things or feel a need to say them?

    I am a skeptic but something else going on.. it scares me to look into this stuff my grandmother was quite psychic. I find it all very odd but there is something in it. My wife would get me to use my hand to take away her period pains by holding my hand over her stomach and pulling it out.. Raki or whatever you call it it made my hand hot and gave it pins and needles but she said it worked so I did this to help her. Why the hell can I do this and are these type of things connected?

  • I woke up late today and was feeling a little grumpy but this really helped me re centre. This is the first meditation I’ve done that I’ve been able to really focus on the breath and not let my mind drift. Thank you Adrienne!

  • I keep experiencing aura like color patterns, the last session a bright white/golden orb similar to looking at the sun appeared. It got bigger and brighter so bright I felt I had to open my eyes.

  • If you are new to meditation. The truth is you already are meditating, you just don’t know it. I talked about this on my channel https://youtu.be/UVxs6t_9g5k

  • Was going great til I turned it up to listen to the whispering voice hot into the zone and then ADVERT!!!! Scared the shit out of me lol

  • It wasnt that hard actually it went by so quick, the last minute though I opened my eyes and close them again then my mind was like “what if someone walks in? What if there is a robber?” Then the last second I wanted to look at the timer but the timer went off

  • Sit in silence comfortable, run the check for your body and bring your attention to that pain and allow it to be there. Ask mentally “who is seeing right now”. Bring the attention to the way you feel. Stay aware of your thoughts. Bring your attention to your breathing. Ask yourself now, who am I. Be aware of your thoughts

  • Comments saying beginners should focus on their breathing to get into meditative state
    Want to point out this doesn’t work for everybody, and people should experiment to what feels best.

    Personally, if I try to focus on breathing for longer than a few breaths, I will go into a state of panic.

    If anyone out there reads this and thinks they’re failing, don’t worry about following other people’s paths, make your own. If you try something and you don’t like it, don’t do it. Do something else. As they say, you do you, boo.

    Do some research to see what different methods can get you into a meditative state, and also what types of meditation there are! It’s fascinating.

  • The calmest, fastest 9 minutes of my life. My mind is so over the place lately that I can’t concentrate for longer than 2 minutes usually, yet these 9 minutes went by in a flash. I’m hooked. It’s Russell Brand meditation for me from now on☮

  • Love Russels content..I have always strugled with meditation untill i took the overnight millionair program check it ou here: https://www.digistore24.com/redir/306837/Abundantliving/

  • Hi man think you’re grate watched a-lot of your stuff sorry sounded like I come from Greys?……..Just needing a little bit of your help Now I find myself out of work with the current situation so trying to do something about it………..I am building/Putting together a Meditation site called Mindsoulbodyclub you know sound and visuals type of thing busy putting together more material at the moment but do have a couple up there just now take a look my friend tell me what you think please thank you……..

  • I’m 21 yrs old. Having some problem from 4-5 yrs. previously it wasn’t so intense. Now its getting worse. I often feel like my soul is detached from my body, it’s leaving this body. And once it leave, its not gonna come back & I’ll forget everyone and everything. Thus my body will live but there will be no “Me” inside. whenever it happens I feel extreme fear. What should I do? I’m really in dire need of help.

  • Meditation is really important but Russell Brand for me is like a hybrid of Danny the Drug Dealer from Withnail & I and Julia Davis in Nighty Night.

  • My mantra falls into the rhythm of my breathing and it’s very satisfying to me. Does anyone else picture little cartoon speech bubbles when thinking “Who am I?” Just see little images of mother, lover, friend, mediator pop out of my mouth ��

  • Russel please please do more of this. Maybe connect with Sam Harris and do a series on his APP… if you want to make use of an established and well respected structure to start.

  • Meditation has many forms and different purposes. Some meditate for spiritual development, some for better focus, some for stress reduction and some for more clarity. Overall there is only one purpose improving your connection with yourself…. http://food-royal.com/ran?r=E3VJE

  • Medication or meditation, you choose, physics (science) psychic see the similarities in each spellings. Physics always trying to prove that psychic are wrong, like meditation can be used for healing instead of medicine chemicals messing with your mind. Again you choose

  • Russell you are truly inspiring. I get such a pleasure watching your videos and I feel so much gratitude towards you! Thank you for sharing ��

  • I just watched a Russell Brand talk show appearance from I don’t know how long ago, and he is so more solid now, slowly present… love it! For those people wanting more of this type of meditation look up Kyle Cease on youtube. We need all the help we can get!

  • Learn meditation online in a day. Get your online course material from Yogi Sri Bhadra. All the methods provided on YouTube can’t be done from 1st day. You should prepare yourself for these methods. I teach you meditation and give you 3 simple techniques to start your meditation. After regular practice you became a meditation expert and can achieve super natural powers.

  • I still don’t get it.
    So you are supposed to try and focus on nothingness? That’s actively trying to focus though, isn’t it? In other guides, it is said that you just let thoughts come and go and not try to influence that. Which one is it?

  • Get him to the Greek!!! �������� “Bulshit I don’t believe that” ������ just made me think about that 2010 movie how hilarious �� anyways Interesting content. I love it.

  • I have never meditated before but after enjoying some of Russell’s videos I thought I’d join in for the craic. I’m 24 weeks pregnant and as I began to relax into the meditation my baby got super active, I was almost able to feel their entire movement rather than just the odd kick. Sounds mad but I’m a bit amazed at what I’ve just felt, definitely something to give a go

  • Absolutely loved this!!!! So much helpful information. I absolutely fell off from my meditating practice and this inspired me to get back in it!

  • I finally found it. After years. This was the only video that helped me meditate for the first time ever. 11 out of 10 super happy

  • Meditation is gaining much self-importance these days innit. A great many get all self-righteous about meditation, “self” being the operative word in the new age and the catalyst of a myriad of historical and voguish spiritual deliriums a lot of ridiculous ego’s blown out of proportion. There’s only a relative few who know first hand the dangers of meditation because the Holy Spirit brings insight into both the extrinsic malleability of the human mind and the twisted metaphysics behind the des nos jours of consciousness, the rest are completely oblivious as to what they’re opening up to or WTF is happening on this planet. What do they care as long as they’re mollycoddled by materialism and feel “peaceful” in a batshit crazy world ��

    For all the sense of “peace” meditation is not a hotline to Divinity. Precisely the opposite in fact: it opens wide the human psyche to occult duplicity. Meditation is fraught with deeply misleading notions and reveries, don’t we see a lot of that in the world today. I meditated for years but it only led me to strong delusion, a delusion I now see manifest in the shitloads of crackpot criminal gurus and new age leaders of today. For sure meditation made me feel peaceful, happy and buoyant sometimes, the universe was (seemingly) my oyster, but in this world happiness is purely biological, often a fools paradise, and contrary to popular opinion doesn’t equate to genuine spiritual truth. It’s shocking to realise how far mankind is from genuine spiritual truth.

    Russell’s rampant unreproved spiritual narcissism is leading y’all to shit. If I can lead anyone away from his smarmy blather then I rejoice! Thankfully I already have ��. I used to like Russell during his comedy years and the trews period, when I was a hindu roots new ager, but now I’m replused by everything he says. I don’t like lookin at him these days because he positively exudes the deceptive kundalini (serpent) spirit. But I have to witness. Russ still needs unfucking at a deep psychic level, his old bliss/heroin/sex demons haven’t left him, they’ve only gone and become hindu gods. Russ isn’t a spiritual man he’s a pagan worshipping in the flesh no spirit, a man of the world not God. I’m sure Russ loves people in his own way but it ain’t God’s Way, Russ doesn’t know God much less Yahshua/Jesus Christ or comprehend just why He went to the cross.

    Russell strives to help people unfuck themselves with diet and pep talks while lobbing a lotta serpent power at ’em. Sorry but that is counter-productive and highly irresponsible behaviour. It’s not going too far to say the Russell Brand is getting away with spiritual murder.

    I’m an ex hindu roots new ager, I was “enlightened” and happily going with the aquarian flow of “love ‘n’ light”: primarily hinduism, kundalini, yogi’s, guru’s, David Icke and similar researchers, Eckhart Tolle and other “illuminated” sorts and the stream of information disseminated by channeled beings such as the ascended masters, starpeople, angels, archangels et al but in recent years I was introduced to the true Holy Spirit, which revealed the extremely consequential deception of all my former beliefs. Following over 30 years of new age doctrine and “ancient wisdom” propaganda my spiritual eyes were opened, and it was quite the surprise. Spirit led me to
    Yahshua/Jesus Christ and everything changed paradigm shifted.

    Spirit gives eyes to see and a heart to understand and with them we comprehend that we’ve inherited an ancient spiritual inversion: the world is fallen, the holistic fields of nature are fallen state, nothing is as it was meant to be. Amidst it all the Holy Spirit testifies of a Glorified Yahshua and Him only. I didn’t want to believe but turns out Yahshua really is the Way, the truth and the Life just like He said and He wasn’t lying or mistaken, there is no deception in Him; no one comes to God except through Yahshua there is no other Way.

    Folks, the sense of entitlement of rich celebrities such as Russell Brand knows no bounds, they want their cake and eat it: they desire all the things of the world and eternal spiritual security. But genuine spirituality doesn’t work like that; sooner or later so many will be utterly shocked at the actual ignorance of their spiritual arrogance.

    It’s often remarked that hinduism, Buddhism etc came long before Yahshua as if it’s a valid point. But it isn’t: Yahshua came in the fullness of time, when He was meant to in the course of history. In fact Yahshua said … all that ever came before me are thieves and robbers. (John 10:8). Yahshua is the only genuine instance of God becoming man once and for all. Yahshua said if you’ve seen Him you’ve seen the Father, and we do see Him beautifully portrayed and endorsed in the New Testament, in fact Yahshua is apparent all through the Old Testament (Luke 24:44). By the Light of the Holy Spirit we’re allowed to see that and know Him.

    Yahshua/Jesus Christ is the greatest possible expression of God’s Almighty Love, everyone everything else is pale imitation and/or a purposeful distraction.

    In a world obsessed with esoterism and “going within” Yahshua is quite literal and exoteric, He will come from without not from within.

    Wake up from your lucid dreams! Planet earth is crazy (haven’t you noticed?) and it’s all founded on spiritual deceptions. There’s gonna be no evolution of consciousness, no ascension to the 5th dimension, no new age reset, no Eckhart Tolle style “new earth,” they’re insidious fantasies designed to detract from the truth. With eyes to see mankind is anciently and currently fallen. The world is being run by luciferians, the coronavirus is a catalyst to help bring on the long planned for new world order and that’s not a positive thing. Stop trusting in mortal men and women full of strong delusion, take a leap of faith and trust in the one true God. You want protection? God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in times of trouble. You want Light? Yahshua is the Light of the world. You want peace? Yahshua said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” You want freedom/moksha? Yahshua is the truth that sets us free (from the world deception). God is exceedingly patient, not wishing any to perish, but He will not strive with mankind forever there is a time limit. Put your heart and soul into Yahshua’s more than capable Hands before it’s too late. Get your ass into the Word of God and meditate on that spiritbomb777.blogspot.com

  • This is a very good meditation video in terms of explaining how to do it but also the bit at the end about how the outcome isn’t gonna happen during the meditation necessarily but during the rest of your day/week/life. That’s the bit that I found always tripped me up, where I sat hoping for some kind of meaningful thought to hit me and preventing myself from relaxing and just letting go.

  • Hey Mister. If you ever happen across this, take a second to feel appreciated.
    Your videos and podcasts kept reminding me, in small intervals, that I’m not alone, through several months which I suffered from an acute self perception of aloneness/ self pity.
    I’ve been SUCH a huge fan, for SO many years.. But your comedy, in itself, couldn’t have shared the light with my spirit, that your awareness, and frankly, your candid manner, did.
    I said all that, to say this.. You really fuckin helped me, Dude Man.
    Thank you.

  • thank you for this 7 minute meditation! I was doing yoga with Adriene every day using the calendar for the past two years as well as classes at the local leisure centre. It was pure joy to join in. It was my 60th birthday in February. Then I sadly got frozen shoulder at the beginning of lockdown March 23rd! The doctor said it was because of being fit from your classes that it will be quicker to recover. It is so sad having this condition as I can no longer do yoga, one cannot lift your own arm and there is so much pain especially at night. ❤

  • At the end of this meditation It brought a unknown memory of a baby well when i was one I’m only 16 but with my eyes closed I got like a spinning illusion and my mind guided itself with words explaining to me that when I was a baby this was what I’d see a dark gray light gray illusion as of you’d watch those optical illusion videos I dont know but that made me feel happy
    And brought reassurance because I get bashed by my family because I really cant remember anything from my childhood to present other then negative memories

  • In Meditation, discover HOW to withdraw from this ‘Holographic Simulation’, produced by Programs, being played in “The Processing System of LIFE”, back into the LIGHT of The Real Self, to find Bliss, and refresh yourselves, by re evaluating what you have been experiencing, before returning to the Program, producing your Holographic Simulation, you believed to be the universe.

  • Hi. Can you please explain your logo & why you use it? Because it’s a symbol used by pedophiles.

    I tried putting this on the contact form of your website but it wouldn’t let me. It gave me an error telling me to please write a valid message, without actually specifying what a ‘valid message’ is or isn’t.

    Thank you.

  • You learned vipasana technique thats being used for many centuries in subcontinent…however, dear teacher you have missed alot to teach. Keep learning. For beginners, guys u can watch vipasana meditation techniques on youtube.

  • My Takeaway
    Set Alarm, start with 20
    Spine straight, tiredness, sleeplessness is due to angle in spine, avoid that
    Take support to back if you want, be comfortable
    Focus on nothingness, that is centre point.. Not breathing in particular or visualisation or mantra, just nothingness… (Doubtful about this)
    If your mind wonders, catch and take back to centre and this entire process is meditation
    Having any doubts in the middle of session, range of emotions, feeling of doing it wrong You are doing it just right, that’s all you need to know, wanting to know read and then start meditation is a sneaky way of procrastinating on meditation
    Middle or mainly end of session, It doesn’t not necessarily make you calm, peaceful, happy etc feelings, you might be agitated, frustrated and this is completely normal,
    Do it consistently for months years, pick whatever reason motivates you
    My reason: Strengthens PFC

  • Hi Dear.

    I’m in the path of realization.
    I realized that meditation is MISION FAILED.
    IAM THAT IAM THATS ALL.
    Human beings can not meditate.
    When you think you are meditating it’s NOT THE HUMAN ITS THE DIVINITY

  • Ook idid it �� my 1st time for 30 min… I have been procrastinate this for years starting it but never this long.. Thanks a lot.. 1st DAY�� of 21 day

    Advice: just set the timer after finish watching immediately and that will be your 1st day

  • Tried this while taking a dump, in the middle a massive log came out, needless to say I had to restart and try again. UPDATE: Life changing, truly.

  • Thank you for making our lives better Adriene. Loads of love and luck to you and to all the people who are not giving up on Yoga! ������

  • First, love your vids long time subscriber here!

    Just wanted to throw an offer your way:

    So I create spiritual/meditation music (chanting, nature sounds…etc) that sort of thing I’m trying to get my music noticed and it’s the kind of music that I think people who watch your videos may really like?!

    So, if you wanted to use any of my music as a background in any of your videos (or in any other creative way)

    I’d like to extend an offer

    I would give you permission to use my music as suits your needs, and I’d just ask for a link back to my music channel in your video description somewhere

    Note: I can also send you a signed document that grants you use of my music in-case Youtube ever hassles you (not that it ever should, since I don’t monetize any of my music) but just so that you can be protected!

    I just love creating music and I have other businesses that I do for money, music is sort of my pure-passion-project.:)

    Anyway!

    My channel is here:

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7n6OQ5d8dXA7SebwTKqmKg

    youtube.com/c/AJDare

    The playlists you might like are “Spirit Soundsz” and “Mystic Vibrationz”

    So, feel free to use any music that you like from my Soundcloud, and if you can just add a line such as this in the description of any video that uses my music:

    “Music by http://www.AJdareMusic.com

    (this links to my Youtube channel)

    that’d be great!

  • This is helpful but I have a few questions. Are you supposed to let those intruding thoughts go or is it ok to block them out/stop them in their track? Somehow the two doesn’t feel identical. Also, what are you meant to focus on, ie guide your focus back to instead of our stupid thoughts? (For me breath has never worked, I can’t detect it easily). should it be/could it be focussing on something like this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvin4VrKXoI&t=608s or should we try silence (impossible with the neighbours)? thanks!

  • I had tried so many other vids.but that was annoying with too many loose talks,and same time lengthy duration too.i really liked that back ground.and that calm feeling which is spreading out of the vid.nice job.all the best.definitely,I will try this..✌️

  • Discover and Understand the DIFFERENCE, between “LIFE (The Real Self)”, and the human PRIMATE, which unfortunately Contains DOUBLE LOGIC in its GENOME, adversely affecting ALL human activity including ‘THOUGHT’ and ‘REASON’, as well as inducing ‘SUFFERING’ and ‘DEATH’… So choose to embrace “LIFE (The Real Self)”, instead of being in Bondage to the human body.

  • A lot of people were talking crap about some of the stuff you said because you meditating into “god mode”. They said they didn’t “believe you”. I do believe you. Just contact me [email protected] gmail.com

  • I had three enlightenment experiences plus went into the “void “ and have been contacted by a ndramadens deceased relatives bunch of lucid dreams/ and some psychic experiences through meditation. But I need a friend / example like you. Just call me brother 8329841107

  • I have enromus respect for sadguru (forgive my broken English) I wish if he holds the key which can help me/humility to do kriya for being better human why not spread for free?
    I’m his follower I love his views when it comes to understand how to be 1%of like him there is no video explaining his art he keeping it just for the paid one…n I agree with miss use or use for defame him also I want ask what will be the bigger cause you’re name or humanity?���� Please inlightten me, why Ur kriya is available only for those who can pay? Why we low income Brahmin can’t learn from you?

  • Listen to someone like Joseph Goldstein’s podcasts. https://youtu.be/fGi_Y7P8t-c Someone who is meditating since the late 60’s. Monkey mind,, can’t even explain that well. There are so many wonderful teachers. Thoughts flow in and out, let them go. EVERYONE has the same issues when trying to meditate,, there are so many good teachers. I don’t now why this guy thinks he is a teacher.

  • Appreciate video content! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard about Diyaaroih Shirtify Explosion (do a search on google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for discovering the secret to hack your flow state using proven meditation techniques minus the normal expense. Ive heard some great things about it and my old buddy Taylor after many years got excellent success with it.

  • Mr. Brand, Russell if I may. A universal, non-locality consciousness is connectivity of the mind and heart and is of a singularity. Collective meditative consciousness influences our reality and can change how we exist. The studies you referred are indeed fact of influence of positive meditation. Thank you for your guidance and insight. When I meditate, I focus on 3 states; Happiness, Harmony, and Calmness. The resulting mindfulness has lowered my blood pressure, reduced my stress, and allowed me to cope with PTSD. Well presented, thank you.

  • i have meditated before watching this video but not for 5 minutes, so I am not starting meditation on today (the day I watched the video), so should I meditate for 5,10, 20 or 25 min

  • I’ve been doing this consistently, and it definitely helps me stay positive / happy throughout the day. There are days where it feels like it didn’t help as much, but it definitely has put me in a better place, so thank you:) I wish there was a way to like this video more than 1 time

  • You can meditate anywhere I prefer noisy places to train my mind to shut out the noise, if you can find peace in the storm you can find peace with in your mind anywhere

  • I love this (how to meditate) thank you, this is the second time I have watched this. Its been about 2 years since I started to meditate, never missed a day. It can be hard sometimes, but I love doing this and enjoy every moment.
    All my family say how much I have changed, and I know I have, and I will never stop meditating thanks to my brother who has been meditating for 35 years.

    Thank you

    Metta to all.

  • Well when u have a 100 billion neurons each with 10,000 connections and ur Brian firing trillions of electro chemical signals ever second of ur life if this fact don’t blow ya the fuck away I don’t know what will cause its a fact

  • Thanks very much… I also love meditating. ��
    I have personally liked watching a lot of Spiritual Master Sri Avinash myself lately for my meditating. #SriAvinashDo
    ��

  • Very good explanation. I’ve read many books, watched many videos about this topic read many articles, and this is one of my favs. I often send a link to this video to friends of mine, to point the importance of meditation and introduce them to the subject. Although, I don’t agree with the time and frequency. It’s hard for the beginner to sit for the time of 20 mins. 10 will do for the start. You should do it on the daily basis BUT when you miss one day it’s not the end of the world and loss of results gained. If this happened look at number of meditation sessions (meditation time) you’ve made in month time or a year time. Be happy that is almost every day and let’s say in 6 months time you’ve done 170 meditation sessions. It’s not 100% but it could be your lifetime result. This is my opinion and experience. Many thanks for this video. Regards from Poland.

  • I just shared this with my son, who’s really struggling in the Covid crisis. He’s lost his degree, his job, his first love and, seemingly, all hope. I’m praying Russell will serve as an accessible introduction to something that really helped me at my lowest ebb. Son, if you read this: I love you.x

It is an awesome one off product for learning how to hack your flow state minus the normal expense. Ive heard some great things about it and my work colleague finally got great results with it.

  • What conclusion can we know to be true, that is in the mystery of the unknown? Can we be the mystery of what we are, without the knower having to know?

  • There is Very good technics here, I hope my idea will help you solve your all worries and evilness will disappear with this method as you wish, see the link, use the method. @t

  • I’ll try this.
    Your explanation makes sense. I’m 40yo and I feel many things have changed from my younger self (inside of me and outside), I’ll see if meditatiom can help find the new me.

  • hmmm The No Bullshit Guide to Meditation you say I can’t sit there hoy 35 minutes and meditate let 15seconds i just haven’t got the patience i refuse to give up.

  • Thank you kind sir, I stumble across your videos time ago and it helped me to finally start building momentum everyday with my meditation practice.

  • Direct your energy to assist you in manifesting what it is you want to both gain and contribute to the world.

    Taking time to slow down and be still will reunite you with your intentions, dear one.

    This week’s free video is flying in to help.

    Think you don’t have the time? Think again.

    Take this 7 minutes (in heaven) to slow down, be still and set intentions for an amazing day.

  • The Yoga With Adrienne music at the end of each video makes me smile. It seems to say “Alright now, get on out there and have a great day!” So happy to hear it at the end of meditation.:)

  • Caught myself stressing at not even 10 a.m. yet, on a Sunday, no less! then thought, aha, it’s time to meditate with Adriene! Ahhhh… now my intention is set: “Just chill. It’s okay.” Thank you, Adriene:)

  • This man is such a treasure, hes one of the least flashy and esoteric spiritual teachers, very practical methods and simple way of explaining them. Thank you, much love!

  • I would caution against building a “system” of meditation because it can block creativity and with systems we create expectations which foster conflict because we inevitably create competing ideas in that structure. Rather make meditation part of your natural life in which sense of awareness of you and your surroundings which can be observed if sitting at busy train station of in room by yourself in silence.

  • Adriene,

    I want to thank you for serving people in such a humbled way. Your channel has created a change on an internal level and given a helping hand for many. You are an inspiration for me and I wish that I could even reach to 5 % of impact that you have. People like you make a world a better place and l want to thank you, sincerely from my heart.

  • Please don’t write something unusual in the comments section because people come here to relieve their stress not for ur fucking comments

  • I am going to post each day I feel like doing it. I do this meditation each morning and it is so simple and beautiful. The sound of your voice and the loving qualities of everything you put out warm my heart. Today I feel like crying and I will embrace it fully.

  • I am a little bit sad, that I cannot give the video a thumbs up everytime I am watching it.
    It’s great for starting the day.
    Do you have more of these?
    The learning Meditation I’ve tried too so far

  • So should I allow thoughts to enter but let them go by, or should I just not think? Because I think I could just not allow thoughts for 20 minutes. Am I complicating meditation now? ��

  • I think is just me, but having a straight back and forward facing head makes me struggle with breathing and even after i stopped, the struggle to breathe just kept getting worse and worse. Just me?

  • It was not until I started to practice correct pranayama, that I realised that maybe 5 times a day I stop breathing for short periods…these periods coincided with anxiety

  • You may also read a short text called the Present which is available for free on the website called Global Truth Project. The book is about the truth of life and it shows the full picture of life for the first time so that you may stop being deceived by the world and be able to see the reality for the first time.A life -changer!

  • I love this 7 minute meditation. It took a while before I found the perfect meditation that will work for me and I’m so glad I found yours. �� Excited to check out your beginner’s yoga videos next! Thank you, Adrienne! You are a gift! ❤️��

  • I’ve been having a hard time for a while now, and I decided that I would try yoga and meditation. I’m so glad I found your channel. Today, I wished for self-love, peace, and being thankful. I’m so thankful for your channel and videos, helping me gain peace and calm, and the reminder to love myself:) thank you.

  • If you weren’t there I could have wasted this whole quattine period. Also you’ve helped a lot you’re truly amazing Aderin. Love from India ❤️

  • Absolutely agree nice that You use your voice to “raise” awareness about consciousness within & around us. Good on You and keep it on please:-D #HumanityForward <3 <3

  • Hi Adriene! Your video is amazing. It has a very Nice and calming effect! I would say it is a must for every meditator! I am also begginning to start with relaxation videos on my channel #NatureLover #Bhaskarvede. Please subscribe if you like it. Thanks for your kindness!

  • My flexibility is not the greatest, so sitting upright in the lotus position is not the most comfortable over long periods of time. I prefer to sit in a recliner.

  • So does anyone know what song is playing in the background for this? I have been doing this as a daily morning practice but now cannot focus because I have heard this song before and cannot think of the name for it! P.S. Thank you Adriene, as your videos help me so much!

  • I agree with 99% of the video, however,
    I disagree with you in that you “need to meditate for 20min a day or not do it at all”. This mindset can be self-limiting if somebody breaks a steak or just gets intimidated.

    Science has shown that even 5 minutes a day can improve your life and happiness. 5 minutes is all you need to reset stress and ground yourself (assuming you are experienced). I find personally if I meditate for less than 3 times a week (10-20min) then there isn’t much of an improvement in overall life satisfaction. Although the more the better; 20min a day, everyday is ideal!

  • i hope you’ll create many more of these adriene. they help so much when i don’t feel able to meditate unguided. you’re my favourite!

  • I have been doing this meditation practice for some time now. It may be the only thing keeping me sane. Be brave and respect yourself. Namaste

  • Okay, this is a bit weird… but how do I end it? I’ve been learning how to meditate but I can never keep track of time!
    When I’m meditating time feels stretched out (5 mins feels like 15mins) and the only way I can come out of it is by putting an alarm and that just startles me out of it. Now I start trying to anticipate the alarm while meditating so that I don’t get startled which has made me unable to concentrate. It’s just a vicious cycle. HELP!

  • these are important life saving things rinpoche talks about obvious maybe but there are so many free youtubes, he is giving vital information on this universe goal, iam on disability now, but some one or a few please give to rinpoche moastery donation or what his projects are, even a lama, rinpoche etc, still need so to speak food and electric bill for monastery, please lets not be thoughtless, non giving back disciples. many many free youtubes rinpoche gives, please someone give to him, his monastery etc, maybe his mom need medication etc. why i dont do? good. now i have 27.00 in bank.

  • Nice video, so when I am actually trying to visualize stuff and get into the meditation can I use the 4-8 breathing method along with the 4-7-8 the whole time?

  • THIS TAO: An arrangement
    of meditations about the ultimate principle underlying the universe by George
    W. Engelhard at Amazon Books.

  • It is the secret. It is the whole reason Buddha, Osho, Mooji, sadhguru, ram Dass, all the aware essences. If you want to see for yourself your true potential. Meditate. it is only a struggle to consistently do because of the ego. The ego does not want to be removed and meditation removes it, naturally you will dislike it.

  • Yes, indeed! Definitely it will be the first and foremost we must start our life for getting focused on the betterment of our life, in addition to this we could do wonderful not just in our life but for the entire community in the universe!

  • I try to meditate but my grandma is always watching tv until like 11 or 12 pm. And my mom is always talking on her phone so I mean I get no chance to meditate. Outside there is always noice.

  • I accidentally set my alarm for 9:32 instead of 21:32 (digital time) so I meditated for 20 minutes instead of 10 until I realised either time was going super slowly or I fucked up.

    I fucked up.

  • Should I change the mantra regularly based on my goal? Do I fix my mind on a future version of myself that I want to become or a future vision I want to accomplish? Do i focus on the internal issues that present themselves or the qualities I want to acquire?
    Joe Dispenza says change your personality to change your personal reality. What does that mean in relation to meditation. It’s all so overwhelming

  • I’m going to try meditation. I believe this will help me overcome things.I want to bind one with being self assured string show more confidence in my life. Thank you for the video.

  • I just tried meditation for the first time and I put my timer for 5 minutes and put on ocean sounds. I couldnt really get into it I kinda kept drifting off into my thoughts and I thought about something I read about meditation and started laughing i was trying to imagine myself on the waves or on a boat and I was rocking back and forth.Then the timer when off and I wasnt satisfied so I turned it on for another 5 minutes and I was moving with my breaths kind of rocking back and forth and then I was sleep or almost went to sleep and started breathing just threw my mouth then the timer went off. Did I do it right?

  • You are blessing in my life Adriene! I’m grateful for every second I spend time with you on the mat.. Thank you for changing my life for the best.. Namaste����

  • Thanks for the video content! Forgive me for butting in, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about Diyaaroih Shirtify Explosion (do a search on google)? It is an awesome one off product for discovering the secret to hack your flow state using proven meditation techniques without the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my work buddy got astronomical success with it.

  • im 32 years old i started having huge headaches since my early 20’s i was doing test to find out the reason and finally around 28 years old i was diagnosted with intracranial hypertension basically brain fluid is building up inside my skull and my body cant reject it and my body keeps giving up on me i have headaches and migraines 5 days a week and the days im ok i cant walk more than 200 feet without my head start hurting again i cant lift any weights i cant make sudden moves turn around fast look down or up for more than 2-3 minutes so i though since there is not a real cure for my condition and my body keeps giving up on me and things getting harder and harder i can at least try save my mind trough meditation and thats why im here and wanna get started, emotional loads good or bad also make things way worst so i tryed over the years and reached a place that im really calm, keep my mind clear cuz that was the only way i could kinda keep my emotions in check and try not let emotions effect me too much and i dont mind sitting 20 minutes for a start not thinking about anything and be calm and relaxed. i believe i can do this, i know i can.

  • Thanks for spreading our ancient Indian culture of yoga to the world and also the terms of our ancient Sanskrit language like “Om”, “Om Tat Sat” and others. Also, thanks for displaying the meditation posture with activated seven power centers within our body (known as the”Sapt Chakra” in Sanskrit language) that only the dedicated and enlightened holy sages could master.

  • Great Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you tried Marnaavid Unexplainable Intervention (google it)? It is a smashing one off product for learning how to hack your flow state minus the headache. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my m8 at very last got amazing results with it.

  • Russell, are you aware an advert for sex meditation inserted itself in the middle of this meditation? (I do have ad-blocker). Talk about snapping out my meditative state!

  • thank you for perfect way to explain how can doing meditation really thanks.

    i have a question pls, how can i do animation videos like your video here i always have idea to open animated youtube channel but i do not know how can i start if you can guide me in this point i would be thankful for you?

  • I think it’s better doing it in the morning so you are good for the whole day, however every time I wake up I have like 10 mins to leave because I’m so tired, I’ll try

  • Why are all the people doing that silly hand mudra? Your hands should be in your lap, palms up, left hand on top of the right. If you’re meditating for an hour, this is much, MUCH more comfortable and realistic. Monks don’t do hand mudras with their arms outstretched balancing their wrists on their knees.

  • Try to make it a daily habit but. Don’t worry if you don’t do it every day, just get back to it when you can. Soon, you will increase the time you set aside for it as you feel the benefits. I’m no pro, and I haven’t done for a few days now, but will get back to it again. Try a mediation app. I use insight timer this way you can track your progress, listen with or without guidance or music or om or nothing just time it. And you can connect with others and thank them for meditating with you and more. ��

  • nothing is waste in this world and meditation is not about getting your desires it’s about having your self control having peace which may can result you in the better decision maker. Please do hit like and comment if you like my answer and thank you for this lovely video guys please subscribe to this channel.

  • Hey great Video, just one thing you saying that once you start you should do this for the rest of your life and if you stop it there is no point is very discouraging. I would much more like to just try this out and see if it fits me than make a commitment for the rest of my life…

  • It becomes difficult for me to meditate alone at home…may I have some kind of guidance for the same? If yes, request you to let me know.

  • Nothing related to how to Meditate. Jon Kabat Zinn and Thich Nhat Hanh are great teachers. Blessings

  • I’ve tried meditation. I just am not able to do it. It irritates me when I try because I really don’t have control of my mind much. I’m easily distract either by something outside my myself or within. I lack the ability to focus on intentual thinking or trying to have no thoughts.
    I had DBT therapy for 3 years and wasn’t able to master mindfulness excercises for the life of me. I find it more irritating than helpful. Maybe I just haven’t had good enough instruction, IDK. Or maybe I’m too stupid.

  • One breath if you don’t inhale you are gone? What blunder he is saying? We can hold breath long as our Lung capacity allows. He is confused with Breathing and Heart beat I think.

  • Hello, amazing content. Keep going your good job. ������ I will be thankful if you visit our new relaxation music in: https://youtu.be/Ufv-918wDL0

  • Listen to j Krishnamurthy…in understanding what meditation is NOT u will understand what it is….u will not understand what krishnaji is saying at first but stick with him untill u get what he says then u will realise something NEW…..I swear this sadguru is a hoax….it’s all thoughts and this is a kind of self-hypnosis….

  • Thank you for an awesome video! I have troubles with sitting in this posture and i have been meditating for years. Everything feels sooo good at first but then my feet is starting to “tickle inside” or some weird sensation i can’t describe better. I guess it’s something to do with the blood flow in the feet? Today i managed to stick it out but other times its impossible for me to sit still for a longer time, i have to switch position. Why is it so and what can i do about it, cuz i really love to sit like this?! <3 I love you!! you're the best! LOVE <3

  • Greetings from the land of Mt. Everest & Lord Buddha…
    NAMASKAR!
    AMAZING VIEW SEEN FROM TUSHITA-NEPAL
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLXLa-nna4k
    Let the world know that YogaMeditation, Astrology, Ayurveda started from the Himalyas of Nepal. Long later, Hindus of India learned the Vedic Culture from Nepal because it is the birthplace of Veda Vyasa (compiler of the 4 Vedassource of all the literature, religion and scientific discoveries). It is the birth place of Bhagawan Rishikesh (LORD KRISHNA) who took birth in Ruru Kshetra Palpa district of Nepal. There is no point of making duplicate Lumbini and Rishikesh in India. Entire world shall know the facts one day as we cannot hide Sun in our palm. The original VANARASI is in charaghat ‘Barahachhetra’ confluence of Varuna + asi river that made Vanarasi (still Indian sages call in ancient Vanarasi or Haridwar). It is the land of Yogi Patanjali (born in Bhojpur district of eastern Nepal) the father of modern yoga. And, all we know that Lord Buddha (the light of world) was born in Lumbini Nepal. Holy river Ganga flows from Gangapurna Himal, Then,,,???

  • I have tried to watch this video 3 fucking times and every time a new, independent, pain in the arse moth has attacked me… go away you little furry bastards I am trying to learn to fucking relax! Argh!

  • Oh my fricking god. Time has been always been going so slow. I swear 20 minutes felt like a year. I could write the bible with all the thougths that came to my mind during those 20 minutes. No. This is impossible. I always want to scratch something in my body. Thruogth all of those 20 min i wasnt breathing i was scratchin parts of my body i didnt even know i could be scratching.

  • Thank you so much Leo for your interesting videos. I have watched your videos in different periods in my life, both good and bad times. Now I feel like I really want to start meditating consistently. I have pretty much everything I wanted in my life, a good job, a university exam, engaged with the love of my life, and good friends (I am 25). But I feel like I need more calmness in my life. I am never really pleased and I want to feel more greatful for the things I have, but also find the strengh to believe that I can do much more in life. My emotions and bad thoughts sometimes stop me from achieving things, and I think that meditation is the key to true hapiness and achievements. I want to be better to control my emotions, and have a better self-esteem. I think highly of myself sometimes but really bad other times, which is because of my ego. Instead, I want to challenge myself more and not think about if I will fail or not. And accepting failures.

    Thank you again, and greetings from Sweden!

  • Bhante.. i am a Vipassana Meditator learnt From the Great Vipassana Teacher S.N Goenka in the tradition of Sayagi U ba khin.
    I think I’m doing this mistake Again n again… expecting more…So thank you So much..May your All Parmis come full fill this may make you fully Liberated.

  • This is a stupid and misleading video there was no explanation of how to actually sit down and meditate he only talks about how fragile life is and at the same time how sturdy a human being can be, with piss poor grammar and a general lack of clarity.

  • Once I commenced carrying out yoga using this yoga guide “Yοmzοzο Kena” (Google it) I was nearly 330 pounds. I could not get enough rest and then my blood pressure level is not healthy (high). The information is straightforward to digest and it is approachable as well. You`d be fortunate to own a copy on this one..

  • Thought I will get to know first step of meditation and can start practicing it. But after 10 mins got to know just watched a bare lecture. Disappointed.

  • Download the app Insight Timer.. it is free and has so many thousands of meditations.. guided, stress relief, depression and anxiety help, sleep therapy. It works! And Sadhguru is there too..

  • I am a Vidyamandir Classes student,
    The music the play in the beginning is also played before our classes for students to meditate
    The rest don’t care, I meditate
    Can somebody please send link to this music? I’m too shy to ask the administration

  • Kudos for the Video! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard about Marnaavid Unexplainable Intervention (do a search on google)? It is a smashing exclusive product for learning how to hack your flow state minus the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my m8 got cool results with it.

  • This meditation is so simple and beautiful it always makes me cry. There is something about you Adriene that is LOVE. Thank you for sharing your path with us.

  • Hey Leo, i’m Sebastián. I have had a consuming anxiety all of my life. Nails bitten, bleeding lips, tics, you name it. Once i ate a piece of wood furniture (no kidding). Much of my life I have been a drug user, drugs that helped me calm all that anxiety but had consequences for my health (memory loss and lack of concentration) and social (chosen isolation basically). A month ago I lost my job and a week ago I ran out of money for my drugs, and my anxiety has returned in a terrible way. Looking for ways to calm me down, I remembered that once a psychologist recommended meditation to me. I saw your video and right after sat down for 20 minutes. The 20 minutes went by faster than I thought and after that I felt tremendous calm. I could have sat there saying nothing for five more minutes (five minutes is enough on me, eh).
    I just wanted to thank you and wish you good luck. For my part, I am going to face the 30-day challenge, although I sincerely believe that I will apply meditation every time I feel anxious during the day.

    Greetings, Sebastián.

  • Just 2.5 months but cannot meditate. Thoughts fly all over. I did 48 days of twice a day but continue with ishwkriya. Immidiately after it I feel relaxed but certainly know I am not meditating. My thoughts just take over.
    Can someone help

  • Noisy, jarring music during first 10 seconds! (???) I’m not planning to turn this on at bedtime, just as I preparing to meditate. Please change it to something quiet and soothing. Thank you!

  • Inappropriate title for this video, although the content of the video is good. This video is about WHY we should meditate rather than HOW. Maybe the uploader needs a crash course on English?
