Be mindfulness during physical acts-

You wake up in the morning and go to the morning walk during that you aren’t aware of that mind is wandering elsewhere now you have to be aware Mindfulness for biggeners  you have to be watchful about your body movements and surroundings or you are doing exercises in gym you have to be watchful and aware of every activity don’t analyse just be aware of whatever is going on you have to be practice of it only when you are engaged in physical activity there are no need to be sit in meditative posture.

The mind is a chain of continuously arising thoughts now you have to be aware of your thoughts you have to be watchful of your thoughts your emotions when you will be present at the moment when you are here now that is the state of mindfulness. The presence of mind to be aware whatsoever is happening at the moment.It will also helpful to deal with the problems of anxiety and depression.

Be Mindfulness during God’s prayer and spiritual activities-

Be aware or be mindful when you are doing your religious activities whatever it may be you may be in church you may be in temple you may be in Gurudwara it may be any religious place that’s no matter but you have to be watchful you have to be aware about that if you can be in the state of mindfulness during that then every act become the prayer of god.

The great novelist Leo Tolstoy wrote a story, The Three hermits, On an island there lived three hermits they were so simple and the only prayer they used was we are three and pray god to maintain mercy on us. The local bishop here about the three hermits and their prayer and decided to teach them the right way of religious prayer.He arrived on the island and told the hermits that their prayer is not right and taught them a customary prayer.The bishop then left on the boat and he saw a radiant light following the boat on the sea he saw the three hermits are running upon the water waves as they reached the bishop they asked we have forgotten the prayer you t6aught us and ask to repeat.The bishop was astonished how did the three hermits walk on the water and said that no need to repeat the prayer continue with your prayer.There are so many miracle and science has yet to find answers.

Be aware of dreams during sleep

Sleep has very important place in our life.A man sleeps almost 8 hrs daily so something happens in our sleep without that you can’t live more in a natural way. S o you have to focus on your sleep and dreams.You have to be aware of your dreams during sleep.This is one type of mindfulness meditation technique but it is not easy to go to sleep with awareness because you are not even aware when you are in the awakening state.You are doing so many works in your day to day life without awakening in a robotic way so start with your awakening state

Be aware of body movement or do it with full mindfulness

While you are awake be aware of your body movement when you are walking in garden be aware of it do it with mindfulness when you are doing exercise in gym be aware or eating bathing whatsoever you are doing be aware or be mindful but start with that type of works which need less attention or less intellectual efforts don’t practise it while you are studying or doing your official work.Practice it with walking eating relaxing etc.

Be aware of your dreams

when you are going to sleep some thoughts are passing at your mind. You have to be aware of  that thoughts because those thoughts are pioneer of your dreams that are the starting point of  your dreams be aware of it but it in an easy way not be tensed and not excessive effort to do it otherwise you will not go to sleep try it daily before sleep and one night that will happen that dreams are going on and you are watching them like a film is going on and you are aware of it and when you will be aware of your dreams you will see that dreams are disappearing and you are in deep sleep and in the morning you will feel more energetic more enthusiastic more joyous and a hypnotic charming glow will last on your face and others will also feel it

Maharishi Patanjali compared deep sleep with SAMADHI highest state of consciousness. In deep sleep, you are in the state of SAMADHI but you have fainted at that time you are not aware if you are in deep sleep with awareness then you are in SAMADHI.You have become one with god your soul is free from all forms of bondage.

These are three states of mind.First, while you are in an awakening state that is a conscious state.When you are in sleep that is an unconscious state but aware in sleep is the third state that is a transcendental state or SAMADHI.
