    *Mindfulness Meditation Breathing Exercises*

    This is an ancient technique that works wonders in our modern world. Not
    only does it help us to relax, but it brings clarity to our busy mind. The
    two breathing exercises shown in this video are what are commonly taught
    when people come to learn meditation as a tool for increasing mindfulness.
    Mindfulness is a hot topic at the moment and is being taught everywhere
    from schools to businesses, it’s no longer a practice exclusive to
    monasteries and temples. People are deriving the great benefits of
    mindfulness, specifically by practicing mindfulness meditation.

    Mindfulness meditation, more commonly known in Buddhism as Shamatha or Calm
    Abiding Meditation, is a technique practiced across all schools of
    Buddhism, though it is more favored in the Theravada Buddhist tradition.
    Regardless of your religion or beliefs, this simple meditation technique
    focuses entirely on one’s breath and can therefore be practiced by
    everyone.

    When I first began practicing meditation, it was the power and benefits
    that came from this simple meditation technique that literally changed my
    life. Suddenly the mental fog that seemed to be the natural state of my
    mind completely lifted, and I felt this immense peace and spaciousness.
    Every part of me seemed to exude the inner peace that I was feeling. Even
    my partner at that time, who I was in the middle of an emotional breakup
    with, looked at me curiously and asked, “What happened to you?” And I said
    with all honestly, “For the first time in my life I feel calm.” This
    calmness and happiness continued to increase the more I explored the
    practice of meditation and the Buddhist teachings, which is why I’m such an
    advocate for teaching these meditations today. I hope you enjoy this guided
    meditation video and derive the same benefits (and more) that come from
    practicing meditation and mindfulness.

    By the way, thanks everyone for a great year. In terms of health and
    family, it’s been a tough year for me and I haven’t even shared half of the
    battles, but I really appreciate everyone’s support of my videos and posts,
    for sharing, liking and commenting. It really means a lot to me. Thank you!
    Have a wonderful New Year!

  13. Jane Schwartz says:

    I find I cannot get started without watching your video. I feel as though I
    will never be able to meditate by myself and I am really trying to let go
    of my thoughts but they keep invading my mind. Any tips?

  14. Jane Schwartz says:

    I find my mind drifting to negative thoughts while I’m trying to meditate.
    I know I’m new at this. Can you tell me if it’s possible to expect to
    master this and how long it will take. Thank you so much. 

  15. Jane Schwartz says:

    Thank you. I play your video everyday to help me learn to let go of stress
    and anxiety. I find I need to watch it to get started. It is beginning to
    really help me.

    Great stuff Jonathan. I am crazy about such stuff. I have done my own
    research and have found that more and more scientific studies are proving
    the effectiveness of these techniques.

    With considerable research, I have developed 5 step formula which I have
    been using for more than a year now and my life has transformed completely.

    do you have a red background because this is about your root chakra? or is
    that coincidental?

    I love this

    This is amazing! Thankyou 🙂 

  34. Francisco Cordova says:

    Thank you

  35. rana dhanoa says:

    Thanks for uploading,,, I know It works because it worked for me , I got
    Canadian permanent residency through visualisation .

  36. Haile Selassie says:

    Thank you Mr Jonathan for posting this incredible video, which is effective
    100% I’m amazed at the way this visualization technique works. I’m sure
    that God, the universe and its good energy will bless you infinitely. 

  37. Stephen Michael Thornton - The Cover Songs says:

    Great video Jonathan. Thank you. 🙂 

  38. Vida Bridges says:

    I really liked your video. It was simple and delightful.

  39. Barbiee Twinzz says:

    gonna try this :)

  40. todd matheson says:

    I think it should be noted that visualization will not guarantee specific
    success. Not everything is possible to achieve and while visualization is
    helpful for inspiring most achievements also require knowledge and
    experience.

  41. mike hennevanger says:

    i got distracted by a different tought ALL of a sudden it tought 1 second
    negatively, and i slowly losted it the succes feelings, but AFTERWARDS it
    came back without even visualizing, which made me visualize realizing which
    makes it actually true that i am truly the succesfull guy or w/e :D

  42. DigitalLoveMovement says:

    This is very lovely, but remember the law of attraction works differently
    with people. Ultimately people have their own free will, so tho the LOA may
    bring this person to you, once you get to know each other the rest is up to
    you 🙂

  43. When I got to the part where I walk out of the cabin, I literally felt this
    feeling of euphoria; like I could do anything I wanted to. My body felt
    gigantic and I was much more aware of it as well. Great video!

    See my YouTube video titled “7 Reasons Visualization Techniques Fail to
    Work”

  45. Thank jou! Be blessed

    you gotta ‘Feel’ as if…good luck 😉

  47. Jonathan Parker says:

    I have a new video on visualization titled: 7 Reasons Visualization
    Techniques Fail To Work.

  48. naustradmas says:

    so, should we always have some objectives before we meditate. Can we find
    what we should meditate for in meditation? I have a few dreams/goals but i
    want to know if meditation answers what one should really care about in
    his/her life. Thanks
