Re: How do I meditate?
Exercise your focus... the object of that focus can be anything... a phrase/mantra, the breathing mechanism, a visual, or the emptiness of being. Silencing mental chatter and learning to be in the "here and now" is essential to the practice.

Re: How do I meditate?
There are many types/styles OP, designed for the myriad of personality types.

One of the easiest methods is simply to sit, quietly and focus on your breathing. Just watch the natural breath, in/out.. in/out etc.

Your mind will wander, when yo notice this, just bring it back to the task in hand.

Try it for a few minutes daily, see how it goes.

There are, as I said above, plenty of other methods, but they all have the same aim, to internalise attention wit a view to stopping your internal dialogue.

Good luck. It takes perseverance but the results are well worth the effort.

Re: How do I meditate?
There are many methods.

The overall idea is to practice mindfulness. Become more familiar with how your mind thinks. Observe the way your thoughts change from subject to subject without taking part in the process.

It's good practice to sit in a position that lines up your spine and stay TOTALLY still. It's good to be in a dark, quiet room. This is just to keep out distractions.

Once you get good at observing your mind without giving input, you'll discover that your thoughts quiet dramatically. I've seen that, once this happens, I sleep better and stress levels plummet.

This is a good method as well. The overall objective is to clear your mind of unnecessary thought.

OP, for the beginner, it is adviseable to check out some of the "guided meditations" on youtube.

Jody Whiteley has a bunch, and there are many others. Good luck!

I personally think that silence is the best option. Music will distract you. The idea is to focus on something simple like breathing, or focus on nothing at all.

And I used to meditate every day hf

Music?

Works for some, just distracts others. Suck it and see.

All the other posters have added effective techniques; give them a try, but remember, if you want to find water it is better to dig a well 100 feet deep rather than 100 wells 1 foot deep.

Find a way that works for you and stick with it.

Daily is best, but don't give up if you can't do it every day..

You take your pants off and start to rub your willy until it's hard. When the white sticky liquid comes out, you're done.

Meditation is the state of your mind before going asleep. Try hard not fall asleep.

Sometimes music helps me get into a deeper meditative state.

Listen to music like the
Calm Meditation Station on Pandora.com
or any meditative music there.

everyone is different, find what works for you.

this is just what I like

Re: How do I meditate?
Its as simple as this! Just concentrate on your breath going in and out.

That is all you ave to do, no visualisation, no mantra,no nothing else.

As soon as you notice your thinking just start to follow your breath again. Even thinking "is this working" or "am i doing it right" is taking your concentration away.

Just follow your breath, trust me magical things can happen but don't wait for them or get frustrated. Just follow the breath...
between the material and the astral planes...

Re: How do I meditate?
The first question to ask is ' Who is it that wants to meditate ? '

The second question to ask is ' why ? '

Only when there is a degree of clarity in the above will meditation be of any benefit.

Best ......
