The only remotely useful information about circadian rhythms meditation that I could find is very generic and rather common sense which applies to any meditation technique that helps with stress relief and relaxation.
For example I've read that you should change your meditation schedule so that you meditate when it is most convenient to you, when you first wake up or when you go to sleep. Apparently this is helping with insomnia.
If I am not mistaken, I said the same thing on several pages here that you should find a convenient time to meditate where you will not be interrupted and where you are most relaxed.
When you are hyperactive or ready to fall asleep, meditation is not the way to go forward. Hm, maybe I was explaining circadian meditation afterall?
Also they are saying that you should focus on your circadian goals during the meditation. Well, first of all, I was not aware that each meditation session has a specific goal in mind. I definitely do not meditate so that I will win the lottery tomorrow, or to end a started fight with my spouse or maybe to I get a raise next week.
I meditate because I love meditating and the benefits of meditation follow without me trying to do anything about bringing them to me as fast as I can.
Next, we are told to learn about our body clock, biofeedback and biorhythms cycles, which is the study of the internal cycle of the body throughout 24 hours. We all have an internal clock and we all know which are the times when we learn best, when we are brightest, and when we should mostly do routine work.
But to actually having to go into studying biorythm only to be able to meditate, I find that a bit of a stretch.
I am sure there are easier ways to combat insomnia than that, which can include avoiding to eat heavy foods just before going to sleep, avoiding alcohol and coffee, and making a regular routine of going to sleep earlier and at the same time every evening.
I was suffering from insomnia for a few years so I could write a book on what works and what not. But autocircadian meditation is definitely not one of them.
Sure, it is actually recommended to use various sleep meditation tracks that put you in a sleepy and drowsy mood which helps you sleep easier and better, but I honestly haven't heard anyone calling those meditations 'autocircadian'. Sleep meditation tracks, yes, but circadian meditation, no.
I am sad to see so many meditation sites promoting this type of autocircadian meditation, even sites that I usually look up to and recommend, such as Project Meditation. If you follow the link to their site, read carefully the article and then come back and tell me what exactly are the steps to perform this type of meditation if you got a clear understanding of it, as I really haven't.
