When a person can regulate their sources of spirituality, it brings them great pleasure. Since we all are different in nature, spirituality differs for most of us as well. The goal behind finding your spirituality is incurring a need to reach beyond to connect with your spiritual side. Whatever you find should make you feel good about you. What you find should be utilized in your journey to spirituality, helping you to develop and grow in your individuality.
We all know that prayers are powerful tools that affect attitudes. Prayers are often said on one’s behalf, or for people we know. According to few philosophers who study spirituality, each day we pray we should work in accord with that prayer. Meditation is a form of getting in touch with you, which is similar to prayer. When you pray you often, feel calm. You will feel a soothing touch graze over you. Like prayer, meditation brings us closer to who we are. You can improve your life through prayer and mediation.
How do I meditate?
First, keep in mind that mediation is a tool that coordinates our senses, thoughts, body, and so on. The notion is to help us relax. As we relax and attempt to meditate, we gain control over our minds, thoughts and so forth. We learn to focus on our goals. We get a sense of spirituality through meditation. The notion helps us to feel energy. Once our energy is lifted, which helps us to deal with life and people more calmly. You will need to follow basics steps to learn how you can focus on what you intend to accomplish from meditation. When you start to meditate, you must realize that at first it will be difficult. At least for most:
Meditation is the process or removing all thoughts from your mind for a short time and then allowing the mind to focus. Sometimes your mind my wander or ramble on, which you should allow. Once the thoughts feel a sense of relief, then you can move to meditate.
My favourite meditation is the Ishayas' Ascension Attitudes - this meditation is simple, natural and powerful. Ishaya means “for higher Consciousness” and Ascension means to “rise beyond” the self-defeating beliefs and judgments which keep the mind in conflict and the heart in pain.
Ascension is not a belief or a new/old religion. There are four techniques called Ascension Attitudes and these are based on the natural movement of the mind towards praise, gratitude, and love and compassion. These techniques effortlessly move the mind inward. By naturally moving the mind inward, all chaotic modes of functioning are surpassed, and the mind arrives at its natural state of silence.

How to being:
As you begin to meditate, start by finding a snug position. You want the body to sit upright in your relaxed spot. Your back should be upright and aligned. Once you are relaxed, use the hands to bear your body weight. Now take a deep breath and breathe in the air, inhaling it into your lungs. Now hold and release. Relax again continuing your position. When you learn to focus on your breathing and how to take deep breathes, it helps you to remove unwarranted stress.
When you learn to meditate, it helps you to find peace within, since your thoughts will gradually quiet. Meditation helps you to clear up clutter. Once you feel that sense of serenity, you will have affirmed your mind. This helps you to pay hold firm to what you intend to accomplish.
One must practice daily to meditate (at least 10 minutes). Practice helps a person gain control over their thoughts. As you continue your journey through meditation, you may find areas of disturbance. In some instances, your mind may wander backwards to memories you do not like. Allow room to accept your discomforts and the thoughts to freely come forward. Remember, you lived it once, how can it harm you again? While you meditate you, do not want to force any actions or thoughts on your mind and body. Allow room for freedom. Once you completed your meditation, say a little prayer for those people suffering in the world. This will make room for added comfort.
