Basic Preparations for Meditation


Are you getting ready to meditate?

Here are a few preparations to give you a better experience:

Choose a quiet location where you will not be disturbed. I think that is the number one priority. Meditation time is traveling within your mind to its most radiant depths with its own sounds and sights along the way.

Prepare your body for meditation. Internally, refrain from food and drink for an hour before beginning your session, so that your energy is not being directed to your digestive system during meditation time.

Take a few minutes to clean your body and put on fresh comfortable clothes. Fresh clothes are an outer help to matching up with a new experience to come, as each meditation is. A clean body is symbolic of removing impurities before meeting the radiance of your soul.

Give yourself some time to sink into your meditation experience. Having some inspiring readings within reach to read put you in a positive frame of mind. For example, choose spiritual biographies, uplifting poetry, commentaries on virtue, prayers, devotions, holy books.

Bring an open mind to your meditation time. If you have a problem you wish to reflect upon it is not productive to think there is only one resolve - your resolve. When you walk on the journey within you may see other solutions or options that were hidden behind walls of ignorance.

Meditation is an open space with no horizon or wall blocking currently unknown options.

Give yourself plenty of time to reflect on the results of your meditation session, by writing your new insights in a journal for review.

After your meditation carry new information and new-found peace into your daily life. Integrate insights.

Meditation is a process of finding that you are a much deeper person than can be seen with the naked eye, much deeper than opinions about yourself or others. Meditation is a gift to yourself where you find you can stretch way out, and enjoy an unlimited presence in the world.
