1. Prepare Your Space
Set aside one or two specific spaces in your home in which you can
meditate. A simple routine can make it easier to slip into your
meditation and allows
you to have less distraction before doing so. The point of meditation
is to be more relaxed so coming to your usual place is helpful for you
to be more clear mentally.
Some usual places could include your bedroom in front of a window, on
the bed facing a certain direction, an empty living area facing a nice
aspect, or an empty room or space. You can set up a
space using, for example, a cushion or rug, or a set of ear
plugs to block noise. If you need a chair to meditate in, your
favourite is an easy way to set your space.
2. Position Yourself Comfortably
There are several ways you can sit in order to meditate. Avoid lying
down horizontally because you may actually drift off to sleep
If you're younger you're best sitting cross legged on
the floor or bed. Since your body is fitter, you don't need
to recline in a chair. You may want to experiment with your method of
crossing your legs to find the most comfortable way. If it's difficult
resting your feet on your thigh don't force it. For
older persons, if you can sit without a chair then this is best,
otherwise, simply find a very comfortable chair and sit normally with
your legs in front and feet touching the floor.
An important part of meditation is to keep your spine perfectly
straight without effort. Start by making your lower back straight and
you will find the rest coming into upright repose without effort. With
legs and spine positioned thusly, you can sit quietly for at ;east
15-20 minutes without discomfort, and more importantly, without being
distracted by your body. You are going internal so becoming
unaware of the physical self is prominent, and setting yourself up this
way is the
only way to achieve this.
3. Breathe In & Empty Your Mind
Once you get the hang of this step then the rest will come so much more
easily for you. Before we can settle into a deep meditative state, we
must calm our
mind and settle it.
You're now sitting in position with no way to be
distracted. Close your eyes and start to breath deeply to release your
daily stresses, and
practise bringing your mind back to the present moment. Your mind will
be restless or busy at first, wanting to think, so keep bringing it
back to your breathing, or to the quiet noises around you. Allow at
least two minutes for this process, and if you are a beginner you may
to keep doing this intermittently.
As you begin to settle your breathing will slow more and your mind
becomes nice and
quiet. Now we are starting to meditate and we continue to keep our mind
present moment. You will start to feel very relaxed and you may simply
start to smile for the pleasure of it. It's a
nice state to be in.
4. Be In Peace Or Love
You have arrived at that space where your mind is floating and you feel
peaceful. Allow this peace to deepen. You may sit in this space for a
while or for the entire meditation, it is really up to you.
this space, it's nice to imagine light all around your body; a pure,
white light diffusing you or clearing your aura. There is NO effort in
this, it is a gentle sensation as you allow light to come through you
and your aura.
You may become aware of your guides or angels around you, and you may
want to ask them a question if you wish. Meditation is the best time to
hear or sense a response or to get a solution, and none of this is
Simply put the question to them and see if anything floats into your
head, like a picture, word, colour, or anything else.
always get simple responses like the word "patience" may come to you
around your question or situation.
Don't discount it as too simplistic, as angel advice is often like
this. You might get an impression that the time is 'now' for what you
are asking, or they may advise what you need to finish off first.
Whatever comes to you will right from your angels or guides, and you
may wish to note it down when you finish meditating.
5. Visualisation Or Healing
Was one of your goals for today's meditation to visualise a positive
result for yourself, others, or the world? Many people meditate to send
specific energy around the world for healing, or to help balance a
situation, energy or outcome. Some people may visualise that the entire
world is peaceful, happy or have eaten, since there is enough food for
all. Of course your visualisations may be more personal too.
If you are wishing to meditate on healing, you may send healing colours
to parts of the world, or healing energy, even love energy, and it is
. Or you may
wish to heal yourself or clear your own energy. Green or emerald is the
healing colour of Archangel Raphael, pink is the colour of love, and
the Violet Flame is a powerful transmuting colour that can clear out
or disqualified energy from yourself or others.
6. Coming Out Of Meditation
You may want to allow the meditation to go until you get a distinct
feeling that you've finished. This occurs when your peaceful state
begins to dissipate and your mind starts to wake up somewhat with new
ideas or everyday thoughts coming back to you.
I always like expressing thanks to my angels or guides, even Mother
Earth. How often do we forget about our Mother planet, who we all live
upon? You may in fact connect to mother earth during each meditation as
you ground in, bringing universal energy down through your head/crown
and through each chakra and deep into the earth. As you are ending the
meditation, simply ground again to earth and pass on your love to this
world we live upon, because she is a sentient being.
7. Ground Yourself Again If Needed
The grounding stage is important for us as we finish and prepare to get
on with our day. If you are not grounded properly, you could be a
hazard in your car, or feel spaced out, fuzzy and not yourself. One
solution is to meditate in the evening when you don't need to drive
the day. If you need to drive you may want to make sure you are fully
awake again in normal consciousness. Give yourself half an hour at
Grounding involves exercises like stamping your feet on the ground,
singing, eating, or using a smoky quartz crystal for example. One easy
way is to imagine your energy going deep into the earth and connecting
with Mother Earth at her core. Being properly grounded means being
awake. Make sure you have a sip of water or go outside barefoot on the
grass. Sit after meditation for a few minutes feeling yourself come
back. Once you are grounded, you can get on with the rest of your day.
