There is a saying that the mind is a madhouse, and that we’re trapped in it. Meditation is a way to come out of the madhouse that we call the mind.

 

It’s so normal these days to have a busy mind. We are impacted by so many impressions that have been filling our minds since we were little. Meditation has become a technique to help empty the mind and flush it of unwanted things. This allows you to sit in silence, in awareness, where you’re without having to carry all of the impressions of your past, and just be in the present moment.

 

There are many different meditation techniques, and some can be more radical than others.

 

What we are discussing in today’s meditation is a little more radical. It was first introduced by Osho. It’s called Gibberish.

 

All of these impressions going on in the mind are all nonsense, there is no point in trying to solve them. It’s best to get out of the mind, to empty it, and be in a space which is beyond the mind.

 

How are we going to do this technique? There are two parts. 1) 10 minutes of gibberish. 2) Sit in silence, in meditation, where there is inner peace, silence, no thought, no movement whatsoever.

 

So what is Gibberish? We let ourselves go completely, we let our expressions out through the mouth, through sounds, in a language that does not exist.

 

Very rarely do we let ourselves let our mind completely go, as we worry what others will think. When you let it all out, what is left is silence, awareness and a sense of lightness, because the entire burden that you’ve been carrying in your mind is now out.

 

A few do’s and don’ts of this exercise:

Do give full energy to it, don’t try to speak or structure your thoughts and then speak – it won’t help. What you should do is just let it out. Don’t use the language which you already know.

 

Secondly, don’t stop in the middle of it – don’t think that you sound stupid. Don’t stop, keep your eyes closed and use the full 10 minutes to let it all out.

 

After ten minutes, I’ll indicate for you to stop. When I say stop, leave everything the way it is. No need to do anything, to think, to wonder what things mean. Keep your eyes closed and enjoy the silence that arises from this cleansing, of letting go.

 

Feel free to use your arms, hands, facial expressions.

 

Meditation Steps:

Here is the step-by-step process for this guided meditation:

  1. Close your eyes, and take a deep breath – inhaling and exhaling through the nose.
  2. And go! Let it all out.
  3. After about 10 minutes, stop vocalising everything. Be silent. Don’t bring any thought or movement. Just be silent and aware. Let go in this silence, and don’t touch any thoughts.
  4. Allow yourself to fall deeper into the silence. Remain silent and aware. Don’t touch your mind.
  5. Feel the stillness of the body, the sensations. Maintain the silence of the mind.
  6. Take this moment to feel thankful, for whatever you want to be thankful for.
  7. Give yourself this moment with that sense of thankfulness, silence, awareness.
  8. Gently and very slowly, open your eyes.

 

It’s so important that we let our minds out like this once in a while, as it can manifest into physical pain if it compounds and is not given the opportunity to be let out.

 

By letting our minds out like this, it allows us to reach an even higher degree of silence – an empty mind – in our meditation.

 

The magic only happens when you let it all go.

 

The technique of Gibberish can be used to do this, but it is an extreme option – the other option is to continue to meditate regularly, to come back to your centre and to your awareness.

 

I hope you enjoy this out there way of purging your mind of useless thoughts!
