Four Steps in the Meditation Process
1. Find a special place to meditate in. A place that you won’t be disturbed, some were like the corner of your bedroom, a quiet spot on your lawn/deck/porch.
2. Sit in your most comfortable place, either on the floor with your back supported or in a chair. If you like, you can lean against a wall, using a cushion for added support. If you prefer other position you can learn more about them at the Meditation Infocenter.
3. Meditating is not easy; at first you should concentrate on just breathing, without trying to control or change your normal breathing pattern.
4. Let your brain rest. Ignore all distractions; if you get distracted by passing thoughts, just remind yourself to not worry about it and that you will come back to it later. Go back to concentrating on your breathing. If you find your brain won’t rest, keep a pad and pencil nearby. Write down anything that is distracting you from meditation and promise yourself that you’ll deal with them when you’re done. Think of a black room and your inside of it and there is nothing else.
