Can you mix up meditation styles?

 Lani Ranks (@LaniRanks)5 years, 7 months ago

So I regularly practice mindfulness meditation twice daily and have recently discovered transcendental meditation. I’ve practiced it a few times and have read up on all of the numerous benefits of this particular style. I’m want to practice TM regularly but I also want to continue my mindfulness meditation practice as well. So I was wondering, since I already meditate twice a day anyway if there’s a problem with practicing both styles daily. As in my morning meditations being mindfulness and my evening meditations being transcendental or vice versa. That way technically I would be getting the benefits of both and over time I would be multi disciplined with two very powerful styles.

In my opinion any form of meditation will ultimately lead to the same
thing, and mixing it up will only further your experience. May i suggest familiarizing yourself with the 13 chakra energy system. The  ‘Earth Star Chakra’ home of the Akashic,
the ‘Soul star Chakra’ access to Higher Self. And as you already know,
the 3rd eye Pineal and heart complex. 

Link them in column of light.

I think we shouldn’t mix the stiles. If you chose one and practice it you go deeper and deeper in it, and that’s the best variant I think..

I agree with you Unicorn.It’s best to stick with one style. You can make a deeper connection.

I regularly mix styles, but after reading these posts, I am interested in hearing more about WHY not to mix styles.  I don’t understand how that could limit you–is it like you’re giving too many mixed messages to your soul?

I think there’s a balance between exchanging styles; predominantly involve yourself in one for technic development, and also expand your conscious sphere by trying other types that are revealed to you. If you stick with one solely, you’ll never know what else was waiting for you just beyond the periphery…
