I first came across T.M. (Transcendental Meditation) when suffering from panic attacks back in the early 1990’s. I was paying privately for Hypnotherapy treatment, because I didn’t believe ithe National Health Service (N.H.S.) had the answers. The only thing that the NHS did that really helped me was to send me off to a group T.M. session. We sat around in a circle and were told how to do it and then we talked about our experiences. I can’t remember going for more than a few sessions and I don’t believe I hit the T.M. state. (I was also given a poor quality relaxation tape by the doctor, which did nothing for me.)
You may need to find a group of people that are studying T.M.. But stay clear of organisations quoting £1500 to learn T.M.. At the same time with a bit of patience, you may be able to find the state of T.M. using my instructions.
This can be any word that you just continually repeat to yourself. The organisations that charge a lot of money, say that it needs to be a special word, that only they can give you. Other people state that the word has to be something that means nothing to you, however, I am going to suggest some words below that I think will work well for you. I am combing with auto-suggestion which I believe will work well with this. Using a gradual word like Calmer, Healthier, Relaxing and Wealthier is going to supercharge this method.
I recommend you start off with one of the Relaxation words. Move onto health and money in the future.
Calm, Centering, Calmer, Peace, Peaceful, Relaxed, Relaxing.
If you have a particular health problem you may wish to use the following words.
For those who are relaxed and healthy and would like to focus more on money
Rich, Richer, Millionaire, Wealthier
How do you T.M. Meditate?
Make sure that you wait at least an hour after eating a meal. You won’t be able to relax if your body is digesting food.
First thing is to find a quiet comfortable room where you will be undisturbed. Switch off any phones, put a “Do not disturb” sign on the door.
I reckon that sitting up in a chair is best. Or put a couple of cushions on the floor and have your back straight against a wall with your legs crossed.
Repeat your chosen mantra above quietly in your mind. If any thought comes up in your mind ignore and repeat the mantra. At the same time breathe slowly in through the nose and out through the mouth.
Carry on doing this for 10, 20, 30 minutes. With time and perseverance, you will hit the state of T.M.. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Do daily for the next month to get any noticeable results.
