1. What did you learn about yourself from doing Meditation?
Meditation taught me a lot of things including; Awareness. Through meditating I
become aware of the quantitative diversity and my thoughts. That’s through mantra it
helps in releasing thoughts hence able to return to tranquil mind.
To be gentle,
Meditating taught me to be gentle with myself. I learned that it’s not good to be harsh and
judgmental every time that I have a thought because I will lose myself in criticism and
aggravation. Faith. Meditating also taught me to have faith. During meditating, I
surrendered my thoughts with faith and I let it go because of the need to make sense of
what is going in my mind. The faith also develops in your life as well.
2. Of the two meditation practices taught in class which one resonates with
you and why?
Breathing meditating resonates with because through it taught me a lot of things
which builds my life in a positive way. The part which touched me most about breathing
meditating was being mindful. This is because it is the process of being fully present
with your thoughts. Being mindful means you are aware of where you are and what you
are going and also not to be overly reacted to what is going around you.
3. How has it helped you in your creative process? Explain why or why not.
In my creative process, it made me be playful with my meditation. Overthinking
kills creativity and keeps my mind outward rather than inward. Plant seeds, but then let
the universe work out the details. Maybe what one want is a great idea for the novel but
one isn’t meditating with the purpose of attaining the idea. One can have the thought that
the meditation is awakening creativity but after that thought is planted, like seeds in the
garden, one just let it grow. No digging it up to see if it’s growing. Just trust that it will
grow that the idea is already sprouting. Try guided meditation ifone usually practice
silently. The “awaken your creativity” meditation here is a great choice, and one of many
an individual can find that aims at tapping into a creative mind. Try silent meditation if
you usually listen to guided meditations. Or try a group meditation in the city. The energy
of group meditation is very different than individual meditation. Sometimes change is
exactly what’s needed to review the creative engines.
4. Have you seen positive/negative effects of Meditating?
Yes, I have. Meditating helped in a positive way. Though meditating it helped me
to reduce stress, it improved my concentration that is right now am more focused on what
I do, it also increased my happiness, meditating encouraged a healthy living, and finally,
it increased my self-awareness. Furthermore, I noticed that there is a big improvement in
my grade this semester after learning how to meditated myself everyday.
5. Do you plan on continuing meditation once this semester ends? Please
explain why or why not.
Yes, I will still continue meditating. This is because through it has made me a
better person both physically and emotionally and that is why I would really like to
continue meditating. I will do all my best and all my effort in doing this. In addition, I
will start going to the gym at least three times a week in order to release some stress in
my day and keep me relaxed.
