Osho Meditation: An Introduction
There are various types of meditation. Some easier to learn than others. Nonetheless, all of them have an invitation to be practiced by anyone who is willing to learn. Meditation is a journey that will take you to self-discovery and will lead you to self-awareness if done consistently and correctly. Here, you will be given insight into what Osho Meditation is.
Take a look at our more detailed post about meditation and its benefits:
“Osho” Is A Name
That’s right. “Osho” is a person. Born and raised as Rajneesh, the renown spiritual teacher or guru changed his name to Osho because of its definition being “an oceanic experience.” The Madhya Pradesh native is the originator of teachings that tell of how each person should be aware not only of his inner experiences but that of the outer as well.
In addition to this, he taught about how to achieve freedom in the mind, as connected to freedom on the outside.
The Definition Of Osho Meditation
Osho meditation is a technique that allows you to feel and believe that you have no bounds, no limits, as human beings tend to be controlled by external factors around him, even without him realizing it.
Work, household chores, relationships and the like constrict the spirit and keeps us from achieving our truest potentials. Likewise, they keep us from being free, which in turn transforms into anxiety and negativity.
This kind of meditation will alter our way of thinking into one that has no limits. We know, it sounds a little bit like it’s leaning towards the “mystical.” Then again, we shouldn’t divide the spiritual from the physical but accept them as one.
The Benefits Of Osho Meditation
People are prone to be uptight, for lack of a better term. We overthink and process information in our heads according to our reaction towards certain stimuli and more often than not, the way we do it is by looking at it through negative perspectives.
Why do we think negatively? Aside from what meditation teaches us that it’s because we may not be self-aware and are still unable to control your inner being in correlation with its surroundings, it’s also due to the fact that we fear the things that we do not fully understand.
Similarly, we are afraid of the future, even the nearest dimension of it. We worry about unfinished tasks in the office because we don’t know if we will be able to complete them or not. We also worry about expenses because we’re not sure that we’ll have enough in our budget to pay for them. Uncertainties and worries. These brood negativity.
How To Practice Osho Meditation
1. The Importance of “Breath” And Letting It All Go
Not related to the Disney film you’re probably thinking about now. Just like any other kind of meditation, it starts here. Be very focused on how you take in air, how you fill your lungs with it and how you exhale it. Then, let it go. Everything. Your inhibitions and stress. How? It’s up to you. Shout, dance around, single, wiggle your arms, anything. Even if it might feel weird, let go.
2. The “Hoo” Mantra
Jump while letting your arms reach as high as they can, comfortably, as if you are reaching out to the skies. And with every jump, just as the mantra is spelled, make a “hoo” sound.
3. Notice Your Environment
Now stop. Take good consideration of everything around you but do so without moving. Yes, freeze, the way you would in a “Stop-Dance.”
Osho meditation will allow you to liberate you from these stifling trains of thought. Learning Osho meditation can give you the ability to take things in stride and breathe easy despite what happens around your environment.
