The “Spirit Hacking" author tells us there are multiple types of meditation and for people who feel uneasy about having to stop what they are doing in order to center themselves, he details the active options, which include:
- Zen meditation, which involves walking and remaining silent while thinking
- Meditation while saying a mantra or a prayer is another active option
- Another active type involves moving the body while staying centered like tai chi
"No everyone's body is the same, and these allow you to get into a space where you feel comfortable when doing it and you can get better results,' he says.
Dr. Travis Stork shares that when he tried active medication it left him feeling "so refreshed."
According to Shaman Durek, meditation can help relieve stress and lower cortisol levels in the body, while also cleansing the body of toxins. In fact, the shaman says he even teaches his students how to meditate at loud and noisy places like concerts.
To cope with outside stimulation like loud noises, Shaman Durek says first you should try to absorb the noise and take it in, instead of trying to push it away. Another technique he uses involves holding your belly button and stating out loud that you want to create a forcefield around yourself and that you want your body to go back to harmony. He believes that when someone is in the “eye of the storm,” they need to try and remain centered.
