Regular meditation can bring about some very real benefits. However, you may be wondering about ultra deep meditation, whether it is possible to go into very deep meditative states, and what benefits there are to such a practice rather than just meditating normally.
The purpose of this article is to give you a method that you can use to help you go into an ultra deep meditation state and achieve a state of relaxation that you may never have encountered before. The main technique I am going to be discussing is mantra meditation. I will also talk about using binaural beats to attain deep meditative states as they are a very effective way of going deep into meditation.
When you do mantra meditation, you repeat a sound or word continuously in your mind. What this does is it keeps your mind busy with a simple boring task while simultaneously letting the rest of your mind to deeply relax. We are going to be using the OM mantra.
To begin, sit comfortably in a relatively upright manner in a peaceful room with subdued lighting. Breathe in deeply, and then as you take a long breath out say Ommmm in time with the out breath. Do this for a few minutes, keeping your breathing slow and deep.
After a while, as you begin to feel quite relaxed, allow your breathing to settle back down to its normal rate, and then slowly shut your eyes. In this relaxed state, allow the mind to carry on repeating the Ommmm mantra at whatever tempo or rhythm feels most natural.
The approach you should take here is to use the very bare minimum of effort to let the mantra continue repeating. It should be an almost totally effortless process. There is no right or wrong way to repeat the mantra. If it is naturally fast, then just allow it to be fast. If it is naturally slow and drawn-out, then just allow it to be slow and drawn-out. Just let the sound float around in your head in a natural, effortless way.
While meditating, if at any time you find your mind has drifted away from your mantra and is caught up in thoughts, do not let it worry you. All you do is gently guide your mind back towards your mantra in an effortless way. Also, if you find yourself feeling blissfully relaxed and peaceful, then feel free to let the mantra fade away, and just rest in that deeply relaxed state.
After about 10 to 20 minutes have gone past, let go of the mantra and then just relax with your eyes closed for a couple of minutes longer. Then gently open your eyes again.
In addition to the mantra meditation (or even instead of it), another way to do ultra deep meditation is to use binaural beats. This entails playing slightly different frequencies into each ear, and your brain hears the difference in frequency and then matches its own brainwave frequency to it. This can cause extremely deep states of mind.
