  2. Day 9 complete.

    @VTheBang Seems like an intense pose. Can you tell me more about it?
     
  3. Very interesting post from @Slider8 ! Great initiative, and I think it can help a lot.

    Checking in for day 16. TFed: 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10. I don't meditate yet, perhaps something I can incorporate with yoga. Not sure what a trigger prevention plan is, techniques like urge surfing? Or is it just cutting out all triggers like social media? I have yet to find a way to cut out Facebook and I should really delete the incognito mode on my phone, just don't know how... any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Day 8. Looking forward to the rebuilding stage ahead of me. As I spend more time on this forum I realize that there are many people out there just like me who have had the same experiences with this addiction. It is motivating to learn that I am not alone.

    well, meditation helps to ground yourself, it helps develop inner peace which is great to deal with the common world and also to withstand urges. i do all kinds of meditation, focus on breath, on body, on awareness, on compassion, etc...

    here´s some tips by a famous buddish monk. i hope it helps :)

    Since Wardruna got a couple of brothers hooked, here´s another song on the Norse Spirit. This is about leaning to a higher protective force. very suitable for us :). Have a great day Fellowship!!! ;)

    "White Raven"

    "Into twilight
    Lure you in
    White raven
    Veiled and dwelling

    Let me ask!
    Lend me a feather
    I will turn it
    into white wings

    Let us fly,
    wide on winds
    With hunting minds
    and sorcerous songs

    Let me ask!
    Lend me your wide-sight
    Let me espy,
    in fumes of fog

    Let me ask!
    Teach me the song
    that allures you… that allures me
    that finds you… that finds me

    Will you follow me
    throughout my time?
    Will you watch over me
    throughout my time?

    Spirit-bird
    Gave me wings
    White raven
    Gave me foresight
    Chanting-crow
    Gave me the song
    White wings
    Follows me"

    In a simplest terms meditation can be any activity where you are completely absorbed in the process,intensely concentrated on it to the exclusion of everything else from your past life and future plans,it's a living intensely in the present moment whilst pushing aside all irrelevant thoughts.
    Trigger prevention plan is the part of your reboot studies ,so if you do 3, you earlier or later will come and do 6. out of your understanding of 3.
    You can erase Facebook from your phone,just leave messenger ;).

    What kind of benefits I do I experience after meditating ? :
    -It makes me more aware and attentive generally.
    -I have expanded knowledge and understanding of the object of my meditation.
    -I have constantly improving ability to perform tasks with minimum to zero distractions.
    -I get the recognition of being in a vibrational state of well-being.It starts from mere seconds but keeps expanding as long as you persevere in your practice.Those are the moments when you stop associating yourself with your name,body,family,duties but become the pure consciousness-awareness the essence of my spirit and soul.
    -It teaches me to keep my goal in mind no matter what and never give up.
    -It makes me aware of what living in the present moment is.Without past and future,just Now.

    What kind of meditation do I do? Well, I do my meditation in the morning and it is a simple breath awareness meditation.For the time I set on my timer I sit quite comfortably and concentrate on the sensation in the nostrils from the air passing in and out,which eventually leads to a prolonged uninterrupted awareness at the same location,even when you stop breathing(either after exhalation or after inhalation)which comes quite naturally.When I do it I leave all my past life and future life plans together with their problems behind the best I can and I dwell purely on the object of my meditation. When I become distracted by thoughts about your past or future as soon as I become aware of the distraction- I push it aside and bring my awareness back to the object of meditation.

    What are the tips for the beginners in meditation practice ? :
    -Do it when you have high mental awareness-concentration.Best time is in the morning after cold shower( if you can take it :)) and a cup of warm drink of your choice .
    -Don't do it in the evening when you are sleepy because its much harder and kind of forceful and apart from that there are reports linking evening meditation before bed with NE.
    -Start slow, say from 5 minutes and after a week or so add another minute.This way you will gradually progress and build up your meditation time without exposing yourself to too much of the mental effort.If you do this for a year you will be able to meditate for an hour in one session.It's up to you how deep you want to go ;).The more you practice it the more meditation will change you.It is opposite to PMO.Whilst PMO /Lust degrades you-Meditation exalts and makes you better.
    -don't do PMO and meditation at the same time, because mind weakened by PMO can snap if you force it.Wait for 3 days after relapse before starting meditation practice.
    -Try to simplify your life.The less problems you have in life ,the less distractions you will encounter during your meditation.
    -Cultivate good character and high morale, otherwise powers developed during meditation practice will ruin you.The more power you have the more damage you can do if you use it improperly.It's similar to super powerful car with bad breaks and lousy steering.
    -Be PERSISTENT in your practice of meditation. Persistence pays homage of attention to your minds development. It's like a seed planted in the soil, if you don't water it ,it will wither and die.The EVERYDAY attention you pay to your meditation practice is the water to the seed which turns the tiny acorn into the enormous-mighty oak tree.
    -Do not eat too much -be moderate in eating.And the best practice is to meditate on the empty stomach in the morning.

    Let's check 'tip' #1 everyday as followed !;)
