10 Best Types Of Meditation and How To Practice Each Technique

How to practice:

Choose a mantra that resonates with you. It may be a self-affirmation (such as “I am worthy”), or it may be a simple chant (such as “om”). Repeat that mantra over and over again for a few minutes. Each time you get distracted, don’t worry about it. Just draw your focus back once more to the mantra.

3. Spiritual meditation

Spiritual meditation is the mindful practice of believing in and connecting to something that is greater, vaster, and deeper than the individual self. In this meditation you are trusting that there is something bigger out there and that everything happens for a reason.

How to practice:

Sit in silence with the awareness on the breath and repeat affirmations focused on surrender and trust, such as: “I am conscious and aware,” “I let everything simply be as it is in this moment,” or “I live in my Creator and my Creator lives in me.”

4. Present-moment meditation

Present moment (or mindfulness) meditation trains us to move from thinking to sensing. Rather than dwelling on the past or dreading the future, this meditation encourages you to become aware of your immediate surroundings or experience, crucially without any judgment. It urges us not to get attached to our thoughts but rather just allow them to be.
