Steps to Mediation
1. Make Time:
Make time for meditation either early in the morning or late in the evening before going to sleep. Morning time is preferable because one is comparatively fresh. Start with 5-10 minutes and gradually take it to 20-30 minutes as you grow in the art of meditation.
1. Find a Quiet Relaxing Environment:
The place of meditation is sacred place. It should be comfortable without any disturbances and dim lights.
2. Sit on Level Ground and keep your Back Straight:
Keep your back straight and in balance. Being in balance means sitting effortlessly. Keep your hands on your thighs or in your lap as part of the overall balance. With straight back you allow the energy to flow naturally and breathe effortlessly.
3. Relax Everything:
Relaxation of body is relaxation of the mind. Start by relaxing body first and once the body is completely relaxed move over to relaxing the mind. There are multiple ways of relaxing. You can also relax by focusing on breathing, any object, sound or image.
4. Active/Passive Meditation:
Active meditation involves active visualization and imagination for a project or event. For example; if you were to heal someone then you would go through the process of scanning and healing, during the mediation. Where as in passive meditation you just focus on one object of meditation. If you meditate on breathing then your focus would remain on breathing for the entire duration. You, of course, have a choice to introduce active visualization, at any time, during meditation.
