Art Of Growing Camp for Teenagers

         Meditation & Motivational

An Invitation for 3 Days:  

Art Of Growing Camp for Teenagers

MeditationTeenagers can benefit greatly from meditation, and as they grow older they appreciate more the privilege of having some time to wholly focus on the present and disengaging from thoughts about everything else.
Pre teens over the age of nine start to have more awareness of their thoughts, and that’s when we can start exploring meditations which involve being aware of your mind and changing your thoughts, or meditations where you put your thoughts aside and go deep within.
 Explore:

1. Creatively
Sit or lie on your back and count slowly in your mind from 100 to 1; counting backward requires more concentration and will help you stay more focused. Try not to think about other things and just stay with the numbers. If you lose your count, start again from 100. If you reached 1, stay in silence for a few more moments.
This is a great exercise for developing concentration, and if you can focus enough just to reach 1 without getting distracted, you will have a beautiful and very relaxing inward experience. Try and see for yourself to.

2. Innovation & Thoughts

Give each teen a pile of cotton balls. You can use any small object but it is easier with ones that don’t make much noise when you move them.
Measure one minute, and ask the children to watch their mind with heightened awareness for that time period, moving one pom-pom to the side for each thought that passes through their mind.
At the end of the minute, count your thoughts. Repeat a few times, trying to have fewer thoughts at every round.
You’ll be surprised to discover that all thoughts tend to run away and disappear when you consciously watch them in this way.

3. Think out of the box

We also call this Monster Meditation because of how you look when you put your hands on your face as described below.
Sit up tall (most teens find it most comfortable to sit with their knees tucked to their chest because they can then rest their elbows on their knees) or lie down on your back and cover your sense organs with your fingers in the following way:
Place your thumbs in your ears so that you won’t be able to hear anything, place your index fingers gently on your eyelids, place the middle fingers on your nose, the next set of fingers above your lips, and your little fingers under your lips.
Keep your elbows down and shoulders relaxed. Start breathing deeply, deep enough so that you’ll hear your breath very loudly inside your head.  After about ten deep breaths, gradually make your breath so quiet and unnoticeable that you don't hear it any more.
Now, start listening to sounds by your right ear, and as you listen, bring your attention to subtler and subtler sounds. Sounds that are hiding under the sounds that you already hear... go deeper and deeper within in this way.
Stay here for another few minutes before releasing your hands. When done, keep your eyes closed and enjoy the affect of this wonderful exercise for a few more gentle breaths.

4. Team management & Together

Sit back to back with a friend, backs and heads touching. Feel each other breathing through your backs. Breathe in and out slowly and deeply, coordinating the rhythm of your breath. Sit as still as you can, just for a few moments, as you listen to the sound of the breath or to silence.
Help each other focus and go within by not moving a muscle.
Now, try to feel how, with your breath, you connect to your friend and to the whole universe. We constantly breathe each other’s air and we nourish each other in this way. We inhale oxygen and exhale more carbon dioxide; and the flowers, grass and trees breathe in carbon dioxide and in return exhale more oxygen for us.
We all support each other and we are all interconnected. Life is so full of magic.

Meditation:

Meditation in general concept is the process of training our ordinary mind to better manage its thoughts, emotions, and feelings, in order to become relaxed, think more clearly and live a healthier, happier and mindful life. This simple mind-training exercise will bring clarity and awareness to our minds, by practicing regularly, you will develop the ability to respond wisely instead of reacting blindly.
Mindfulness meditation is simply the process of noticing our experience in the present moment, and being none judgmental about any emotions or thoughts arise; in another word, Mindfulness is none judgmental awareness of the present moment. Mindfulness creates space. It replaces implosive reactions with thoughtful responses.
Mindfulness helps with emotional regulation, self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, decision-making and much more

To Improve in a Person :

1. Happiness
Use this practice to rediscover your natural connection with joy.
The more you practice invoking states of well-being, the more available they are. Use the following practice to teach your mind and body to experience joy in the moment. As you invite happiness into your life in this way, you will have more access to a joyful life.
·         Get comfortable and, if you wish, close your eyes. Become aware of your breath, and breathe slowly and deeply. Breathe in relaxation and a sense of ease. Let go of any tension as you exhale. Let the warmth of relaxation flow through your whole body, from your head all the way down to your feet.
·         Find your own way to the still, quiet center of your being, with your body relaxed, your emotions calm, your mind peaceful and spacious.
·         Think of a time when you experienced great joy and well-being, perhaps when you were in a beautiful place or with a good friend.
·         Recall your experience with as much detail as you can. If possible, bring an image of that moment to mind. What was happening? What was the environment like? Were you alone or with others? What sights or sounds can you remember?
·         Remember how the experience of well-being or joy felt in your body. Did your body feel light? Energetic? Expansive? What did joy feel like in your mind? Did your mind feel open? Present? Clear? Take a few moments to let your awareness feel the sensations in your body and the mood in your mind. Let them fully register as you breathe in this feeling of well-being. Relax into it with each exhalation.
·         Practice calling up this image and the feelings of well-being regularly each day for one week. At times, you may find you can simply invoke and sustain those feelings of well-being without having to re-create the specific memory.

 

2. Productive & Breath Meditation

Sit up tall and close your eyes. Begin breathing deep enough that you can hear your breath. Feel how the breath moves your body, and notice the flow of the breath through your nostrils, in and out of your body. Try to feel the contact of the air with the inside your nose, or how the air touches your upper lip.
Now gradually make the breath much gentler and let it flow naturally but keep listening to its sound. Try not to listen to your thoughts; listen only to your breath.
Whenever you find yourself thinking of other things, come back to your breath.
You can practice the same meditation listening to your heartbeat by bringing your full attention to it in a similar manner.
Give each teen a pile of cotton balls. You can use any small object but it is easier with ones that don’t make much noise when you move them.
Measure one minute, and ask the children to watch their mind with heightened awareness for that time period, moving one pom-pom to the side for each thought that passes through their mind.
At the end of the minute, count your thoughts. Repeat a few times, trying to have fewer thoughts at every round.
You’ll be surprised to discover that all thoughts tend to run away and disappear when you consciously watch them in this way.

Try not to think about other things and just stay with the numbers. If you lose your count, start again from 100. If you reached 1, stay in silence for a few more moments.

This is a great exercise for developing concentration, and if you can focus enough just to reach 1 without getting distracted, you will have a beautiful and very relaxing inward experience. Try and see for yourself to.

Writing down your goals and dreams is a great way to start making them come true! It helps you to be mindful with your ideas and intentions and start focusing on them.
Give the children a piece of paper with a large circle in the middle and ask the children to draw or write about things they want to happen in the middle of the circle. Then ask them to draw or write about the thing that they don’t want in the outer circle.
Allow the children plenty of time for this exercise, it can really ignite their imagination and they’ll need time for thought and time for completion.
When their circle of dreams is complete, it can be hung in a special place so that we can revisit our dreams often. After a few weeks or months you can reflect on what has come true, and maybe update your dreams and goals a bit if you want to.

Get Over Come From:

1.    Fear of Failure:
This happens to quite a few of us, at one stage or the other when the individual believes that he is no good, whatever he tries his hands on results in failure. This or something else is the cause of his not being accepted by family, friends, co-workers or the society at large. The person feels that he is unwanted and nobody loves him anymore. He has no place to go and he is not good enough.This is a terrible feeling and can do a lot of damage to the self respect and self worth of the person. Immediate action should be taken by the person to get rid of this self destructing emotion. Thus the subconscious mind needs to be cleared of such negative beliefs which give birth to this limiting belief.
The more this person believes so the more he gets entangled into the negative emotion. Because we respond to the world based on our own beliefs, perceptions and programming. Once you become in your practice, you may use the same technique to kick away any other fear or negativity that you might have – now or later.
  • You should do this mindfulness exercise many times and regularly.
  • Do this mediation daily till you absolutely wash yourself of the emotion and feeling that you are not wanted in the group or by certain individuals.
  • Consciously keep bringing the meditation experience in your daily life.
  • Apply mindfulness tell yourself that you too are a personality wanted and loved by others.
  • Bookmark this page and read through this page regularly to clear yourself of the habit of self doubt, self criticism and raise your self-worth. The more we clear ourselves of the painful self sabotaging beliefs, the more we shall experience our lives changing for the better.

A guided meditation that allows you to get in touch with the energy of the fear of failure and to clear all painful memories and emotions that keep the fear active in your system, thereby clearing your subconscious mind of thoughts that limit your personal experience of inner peace, love, joy and happiness in life.

Anxiety & Depression

 One of the causes of anxiety is also lack of prana (life force energy). Meditation increases the prana in the body, resulting in anxiety-free mind. happens on daily basis. When you feel anxious, your mind gets stuck in an uncontrolled thoughts. Thoughts like ‘what will happen?’ are a constant. This bombardment of thoughts makes you fearful.
Meditation makes you calm and gives you the inner strength to face any situation. It instills in you the faith that whatever happens will happen for the best, even if that ‘whatever’ is unknown to you.  
Meditation helps you drop the anxiety about the unknown future and brings your mind to the present moment. There is one secret about the present moment. All the actions happen only in the present moment. And an action is possible only in the present moment, as one cannot act in future. With a relaxed mind, you are able to carry out the required action by overcoming fear.

Nevertheless, medication is not required to overcome anxiety disorder. We eliminate anxiety disorder by addressing the body’s overly stressed state (which eliminates anxiety symptoms) and the behaviors that motivate apprehensive behavior. This can be all accomplished through talk therapy, natural means, support, and effort.
         
 Regular exercise can be as effective at treating depression as medication. Not only does exercise boost serotonin, endorphins, and other feel-good brain chemicals, it triggers the growth of new brain cells and connections, just like antidepressants do. Best of all, you don’t have to train for a marathon in order to reap the benefits. Even a half-hour daily walk can make a big difference. For maximum results, aim for 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic activity on most days.
Nutrition. Eating well is important for both your physical and mental health. Eating small, well-balanced meals throughout the day will help you keep your energy up and minimize mood swings. While you may be drawn to sugary foods for the quick boost they provide, complex carbohydrates are a better choice. They'll get you going without the all-too-soon sugar crash.
Sleep. Sleep has a strong effect on mood. When you don't get enough sleep, your depression symptoms will be worse. Sleep deprivation exacerbates irritability, moodiness, sadness, and fatigue. Make sure you're getting enough sleep each night Very few people do well on less than seven hours a night. Aim for somewhere between seven to nine hours each night.
Stress reduction. Make changes in your life to help manage and reduce stress. Too much stress exacerbates depression and puts you at risk for future depression. Take the aspects of your life that stress you out, such as work overload or unsupportive relationships, and find ways to minimize their impact
