Meditation Techniques

Knowledge of proper meditation techniques leads to self healing and spiritual awareness. Meditation is the backbone of spirituality and a journey that will increase your spiritual experience.

I believe that living life with awareness and presence is The Meditation. Even though it is a matter of taking a different perspective, we can think of it also as an easy meditation technique.

Breathing Techniques

Meditation exercises help in increasing focus and awareness. It helps us to connect our soul with the physical body and mind and thus opens the doors to knowledge, wisdom, and wellness. The most powerful way to meditate and achieve your goals is by focusing on your breathing. There are some common breathing techniques that are incorporated in meditation and these include:



Pranayama

It is considered to be an exact science and its primary focus lies in regulation of your breathing or controlling of Prana. This is done by stopping inhalation and exhalation. By controlling your inspiratory and expiratory breathing, you can control your subtle prana, which translates into controlling your mind. Controlling your mind through Pranayama will help you to remove the impurities in your body. In order to succeed in Pranayama meditation, you will need to practice it regularly in a solitary and pleasant spot, where you will be far from external disturbances.

Diaphragmatic Breathing

Diaphragmatic breathing is different than pranayama. Breathing is known to be connected to our autonomic nervous system as well as the mind. Hence, you need to consciously practice diaphragmatic breathing during early mornings and prior to sunset. In this type of breathing, you will need to ensure that there is no pause between inhalation and exhalation or vice-versa. You need to breathe slowly and smoothly.



Mindful Breathing

Mindfulness breathing is a Buddhist technique. It primary aim is to help you focus on your own breathing. The concept is to focus on your breathing as you breathe in-and-out and this is known as mindfulness-of-breathing. Focusing on breathing will help you to develop concentration. Initially, most people are unable to focus on their breathing and in such a scenario, counting the breaths can be helpful.



Chakra Breathing Meditation

Chakra Meditation focuses on breathing energy through the chakras. There are seven chakras in our body, including:

  • Root chakra on the base of spine
  • Sacral chakra situated in the lower abdomen
  • Solar plexus chakra situated in the solar plexus
  • Heart chakra located at the chest center
  • Throat chakra in the throat
  • Third Eye chakra located at the forehead center
  • Crown chakra at the top of the skull or head

The Chakra breathing will assist in and improve the flow of energy in and out of your body through the various chakras located in the different parts of your body. Breathing while putting your awareness over each chakra will create harmony and balance positive energy flow in your body thus keeping you healthy physically and emotionally.

Other Techniques and Exercises

There are several meditation exercises that you can practice in order to create a balance between your mind, body, and soul.

Two of them are called Samatha and Vipassana and are the basis to deepen your meditation experience and its power.

Once you have trained yourself with them, you have also the possibility to practice through most of your actions in daily life. I like to call it “Life Practice Meditation” and it is an easy meditation technique.

Some of the other common and powerful meditation techniques that you can practice include Tibetan Buddhist Mahamudra and Dzogchen meditation, Transcendental Meditation, Zen Meditation, Tai Chi Meditation, and Kundalini.

What clients say

I went to Massimo for a healing session in which I experienced calmness and opening of my heart.
All the sadness I had as a child and images from my childhood went by and were gone. An hour treatment went by like ten minutes. In other times I experienced very deep meditations, quietness, yet very alert and awake. Thanks Massimo for helping me get in touch with the healing force within me.

- Liat, Netanya, Israel

 

Dear Massimo, thanks so much for your healing sessions. So many things changed and improved since the beginning of your treatments. You are very gifted and all you are doing arises from the depth of your heart and the depth of the knowledge you channel. I highly recommend you as a healer.

- Zvi, Tel Aviv, Israel

 

Good luck: with this single word I can express what I feel to have met Massimo.
I have been knowing him for 10 years and working with him I have done a path to awareness.
He is a good teacher, sincere, honest, which guides you to the truth and peace that our heart desires and can achieve.
 
- Tiziana, Arezzo, Italy

 

For me, healing means integrity and the consistency of living my daily life, relationships and job in the way of my true "I".
Massimo has the rare ability to lead people, and therefore me, to
transform obstacles that stand between you and what you want to realize in available energy. He does so with great respect, patience and lack of judgment.
Massimo, thanks for all that I get from you.

- Maria, Udine, Italy





When Massimo gave me healing sessions online, I experienced him as a sensitive and dedicated man who has the gift to sense into deeper layers of the soul and affect them in a gentle and non intruding way. His careful way of approaching the pain in my eyes and the feedback he gave me from his sensitive perceptions helped me to gain trust and confidence in my healing process.
