Meditation for dummies

I have been trying to meditate many times before in my life but it wasn’t until now when I started to read a book on taoist meditation (will update with the title soon) that I really understand how to do it. This is just my version of meditation, I recommend you to read more on your own. But this tip on how to get started might serve as a motivation to begin.

Before you start, watch this video on how to breath!

Meditation for dummies

Step 1: Find a calm place where you wont be disturbed. Sit on a chair or on the floor with your legs crossed. Keep your spine straight. Close your eyes. Put your tongue towards the top of your mouth.

Step 2: Breath slowly in and out with your stomach.

Step 3: Recall the feeling of butterflies in your stomach. Feel them enter through an area behind your belly button. Feel this sensation spread in your whole stomach.

Step 4: Feel the butterflies in your whole body and your skin. Stay in this sensation for a while and feel happiness and love. Stay like this for a couple of minutes, start with 5 and when you feel ready increase to 15. Do every morning before breakfast or as often as you feel like it. It’s not important to do it often in the beginning. It’s like learning how to ride a bike when you where a kid. You start by trying it out a couple of times, no pressure, then start practicing more regular, and once you get it it’s like riding a bike.

No internet for the whole weekend!!!

Yesterday Fia and I decided to go to Chile to visit her sister! You can read more about our adventures in our travel blog on Tumblr.

This weekend we will visit Fias sisters boyfriends house south of Santiago. There is no internet connection there!!! Will probably be good to disconnect for a couple of days though, don’t think I have been offline for that long since I was backpacking in Thailand three years ago. Will give you an update on how it went on monday.

We where promised though that there might be cowboys. Will use this weekend to do loads of offline things outdoors and be inspired. If you spend all your time online your references will be the same as everyone elses and to come up with new unique ideas you need random inspiration from different areas.

See you after the weekend!
