Meditation - woman in meditation
yup.....i practice it sometimes, when i need to release all stuck in my head. Also I can feel the sensation of meditation when i'm on sholat. Actually, sholat on moslem can be a media for relaxation beside communicate with Allah

yes, i know sholat. it is also another way of meditation. i often watch moslems when they are praying, sholat is like a mini yoga. but, i think there still are many various ways of meditation in moslem tradition, like sufi whirling which is taught by Rumi

I sit down and listen to my meditation cds. I have one with flowing water which is so peaceful. I concentrate on the sounds and imagine it washing away all the negativity from my life. I find it give me more of a chance to focus on the things which matter in life than concentrating on the negativity of life.

I try to, although I am struggling to find time to do it (or much else for that matter). I practice a very simple form of zazen (sitting meditation), where I simply sit, and focus on my breathing. I really should start doing it more, it will definitely help me with all the stress in my life at the moment.

In today's stressful and restless days, meditation is one of the cures for all mental problems of the people. I do meditate for 30 minutes in the evening after sunset and after dinner. the method is very simple. I sit casually What ever thoughts I get slowly I get rim saying to myself that it is not for me. Still some thoughts won't go. I tell my mind I need peace and I do not want thoughts. Still one thought definitely remains. That is about money. I concentrate on money thought throughtout. Somedays when I donot feel for money, that day I will be able to control the mind, by suspending the all thoughts from my mind. Except the god nothing will be in the mind and that day I feel great. It gives extra energy to do lot of work and all works I can do with speed, with clarity of mind and with least mistakes.

Yes I try and meditate every day. I sit in a quiet place, close my eyes and focus on breathing through my nose. If any thoughts arise then I just return my focus to my breath. I find that meditation helps me to be a much calmer person and it's also a very good method to help me unwind after coming home from work.
