Tip for meditation . stop trying to have an empty mind. That doesn’t usually work. At least not for me as an autistic person who also has intrusive thoughts. I’ve found it’s easier to get into the meditation..if you can instead..allow yourself to focus on an aspect of it. Such as a visualization if you’re able or a thought that interests you that connects with the meditation or outcome. Such as if trying to ground or calm yourself..for example. Allow a song to be your focus in your mind that relaxes you. Or something else. Or what not.. Focus on your body…such as your breathing. While trying to go into it.
Youre telling people to be lazy and not train their mind. Of course its going to be hard at first
The mind is like a muslce, the more you use it the stronger and easier it will get
Being able to control your thoughts is the most important aspect of meditation. It helps regulate your emotions, it can keep you cool and collected in a dangerous situation, and it helps with things like a.d.d & a.d.h.d
This is by far the worst advice on meditation I’ve ever seen
“Dont work guys let mommy and daddy do all the lifting, cooking, and cleaning cause its too hard to do yourself. Relax and enjoy life instead guys its easier and youll be happy”
Stop being lazy.
Excuse me? I think you are misunderstanding the post. Not a single part of it is telling anyone to be lazy, nor is it telling folks to not put effort into learning to meditate.
I absolutely agree that the more you train to use your mind for meditation the easier it will get, and that being able to control your thoughts is also important. The whole point of this post is to give those who have trouble meditating or getting into meditation, due to trouble with their intrusive thoughts, or thoughts in general, some tips on how to focus on the meditation and said thoughts, with some means of doing so.
In what way, does that make them lazy? Or me lazy for suggesting means of them finding a way to focus their thoughts to prepare to meditate at all?
Hot take but some witches are neurodivergent and can’t clear our minds like neurotypicals can. So @stubbornbudgie is in the right to give advice to those of us who can’t meditate like neurotypicals do.
Stay in your lane.
