Will meditation help me learn how to concentrate better? How to meditate?

Is meditation one of those things you have to practice to become good at? Because when I’ve tried it, I get distracted easily and my mind wanders.
Ok can I NOT have answers about Jesus or Christian stuff? That’s NOT WHAT I’M ASKING.

It’s probably not bad.
It may not have any intrinsic benefits, but the spin-offs are, at least, good.
Be still and know that I am God, for example.
The result is…etc.

I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush…
Yes, you have to practice, in a quiet place, alone. Part of the point is to gain disipline over your mind, so it doesn’t wander, but does as you Will it.

MEDITATION
The kind of deep, concentrated thinking in which a person seriously reflects on past experiences, ponders and muses over current matters, or thoughtfully contemplates possible future events.
In order to meditate properly, a person needs to be free from distractions, alone with his thoughts, so to speak. Isaac, for example, went out walking alone in the early evening to meditate, possibly about his coming marriage to Rebekah. (Ge 24:63) It was during the solitude of the night watches that the psalmist meditated on the greatness of his Grand Creator. (Ps 63:6) The meditations of the heart should be focused on beneficial things, on Jehovah’s splendor and activities, on things pleasing to him (Ps 19:14; 49:3; 77:12; 143:5; Php 4:8), and not on the devices of the wicked.–Pr 24:1, 2.
By engaging in profitable meditation, one will not be inclined to give foolish answers. He will seriously think out these matters of importance, and as a result, the answers given will be from the heart and will not be something to regret later on.–Pr 15:28.
When Joshua was appointed as the overseer of the nation of Israel, he was instructed to make a copy of Jehovah’s law, and he was told (as rendered in many Bible versions) to “meditate” thereon day and night. (Jos 1:8; AS, KJ, JB, RS) The Hebrew word here for “meditate” is ha·ghah”². It basically means “utter inarticulate sounds” and is rendered “moan,” ‘growl,’ ‘coo,’ and ‘mutter.’ (Isa 16:7; 31:4; 38:14; 59:3) Ha·ghah”² also has the meanings “utter in an undertone” and “meditate.” (Ps 35:28; Pr 15:28) The New World Translation appropriately renders the Hebrew term ha·ghah”², appearing in Joshua 1:8, “you must in an undertone read.” (See also Ps 1:2.) Reading in an undertone would impress more indelibly on the mind the material on which one was meditating. Gesenius’s Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon (translated by S. Tregelles, 1901, p. 215) says of ha·ghah”²: “Prop[erly] to speak with oneself, murmuring and in a low voice, as is often done by those who are musing.”–Compare Ps 35:28; 37:30; 71:24; Isa 8:19; 33:18.
The apostle Paul told Timothy that he should ponder over or be meditating on his conduct, ministry, and teaching. As an overseer, Timothy had to be unusually careful that he taught sound doctrine and that his way of life was exemplary.–1Ti 4:15.
thanks…. have a good day…

turn off everything tv, cellphone etc.. everything that may distract you. Clean your head of all negative thoughts and just leave the positive ones. If you still find it hard to concentrate just put on a relaxing song on low volume that could help you out with distraction. if you live near the countryside that would be a good option since it’s easier to find a quite place to meditate.
when you meditate you should breath in and out slowly because when you breath slowly your body sends a signal to your brain that everything is alright and that your chilled out. But, when you breath fast the body sends the opposite it means your stressed out and your energy is not balanced.

Hi there 🙂
There are other tools you can use to meditate with, music is great for me because I love music.
There are all kinds of things out there such as
Brainwaves
Binaural Beats
Frequencies
Crystals
But if you want to quieten your mind easier listening to music and Brainwaves is very effective, especially the Alpha frequency.
Here is a website where you can get some great frequencies and some other links that will show you some other types of frequencies.
Brainwave Entrainment – http://tinyurl.com/33uzaj7
Meditation Music & Frequencies – http://tinyurl.com/366yj6h
(There is one called Melatonin which is a chemical in the brain that is released when listening to a certain frequency this calms you, There is also Serotonin which causes you to feel good when it is released)
Complete Meditation Guide with music and How To Create your own meditations – http://tinyurl.com/3yp8w7q
Here is a cool thing I found the other day, Some Healing Frequencies, check out their other video’s as well. 🙂

Good Luck

Hello Crushed Girl,
Yes, you must practice at meditation to get good at it. It is very easy to get distracted by sounds, thoughts, emotions and the presence of other people. It takes a great deal of practice to not be distracted. I can promise you though that it does get easier and eventually becomes effortless.
But meditation practice should not be a chore. It should be enjoyable and fulfilling.
Try some of the meditations at the websites below. They are quite good.
Take care.
