Meditation Guide for Beginners III — Transcendental Meditation

If the topic interests you, we advise you to also read parts I and II of this meditation guide for beginners where, very briefly, we explain some of the most pertinent (or used) meditation techniques.

In this article we will briefly talk about Transcendental Meditation which is, for many, the most difficult to do but also the one that can lead to a greater altered state of consciousness. At the end of this article there is Podcast III with an example of the same. It won't be a long meditation but it will help you get to know the genre and, obviously, get some rest.

Transcendental Meditation aims to make us reach an altered state of consciousness, naturally, without resorting to artifices. This state not only distances us from memories of the past and worries about the future, but it also distances us from what is happening in the present, unlike, for example, formal Mindfulness meditations, which focus on the “here” and “now”. .

Focusing on and repeating a mantra like OHM, for example, or a phrase like: " I'm calm, I'm fine", together with breathing, is one of the many ways to eventually reach the desired state.

Although it is not easy to change the state of our psyche in such a profound way, it is possible. There is nothing that you cannot achieve with proper practice. It's a similar feeling to what can happen, for example, when we're not quite asleep yet but we're not quite awake and we end up not even watching that part of the film or even reading that part of the book and so on.

In general, it is also not a state that is linear or very long, except in meditators with a lot of experience, who practice it every day, or in people who already have some natural predisposition for this to happen. However, if you can get some rest and, during that period of time, not think about anything special, it will be worth it.

We remember that the OHM is the mantra that symbolizes (translates into sound) the natural vibration of the Universe and that by repeating the same we are not only in communion with the cosmos but we are also entertaining the conscious mind that makes us think and rethink so much, not letting us rest what we actually need so that we can be healthier overall.

We hope you like it! Here is Podcast III, with a small meditation based on its transcendental aspect.
