There are many self-help tools out there, but many of them require lots of preparation and instruction. Business Applied Meditation is an innovative meditative practice that helps business people get a sharper and clearer mind, in an efficient and simple way. It’s methodology, practice and purpose make it unique. As we mentioned in previous blogs, the methodology consists of affirmations, visualisations and letting go.
In terms of practical application, the practitioner thinks about or uses his/her inner voice to say the affirmation two or three times during the course of 5 minutes. This methodology is very different from other techniques. Other techniques focus on telling a story, or guiding the practitioner from the beginning until the end of a meditation, and some even repeat a certain sentence or a word non-stop like a mantra. Here the idea is for the practitioner to initiate the process with an affirmation and then to enter a space where he/she can quiet the mind and ‘let go’ with minimal cognitive activity.
The purpose is to help individuals eliminate all destructive content of the mind, which can only be possible when the mind is quiet. Therefore, the programs focus on helping individuals develop self-awareness (knowledge about oneself) and keep the mind sharp and directed. Self-awareness is one key for managers and leaders looking to motivate and communicate their ideas and goals to others. It also helps them become more aware of their potential and execute their vision.
Business Applied Meditation can be practiced anywhere at any time. It is straightforward and can be easily integrated into daily life. It stands out from other techniques because it doesn’t consist of a lot of instructions or require lots of preparation from the practitioner. Like anything else, Business Applied Meditation requires practice to ensure optimal results.
