#1. Find your meditation place

You have to find a place where you will feel safe and comfortable in it. For example, you can choose your bedroom; it's a great place where you will not be bothered. After choosing a place, clean the space around it. Remove all things lying around.

#2. Sit in a comfortable position

If you practiced meditation before, you know that there are many positions that you can choose for your practice. So, find a position that is most comfortable for you. For example, you can sit on your chair while meditating. Whatever posture you choose, sit upright to facilitate the flow of energy.

#4. Simply sit and observe

Then just sit back and observe the inner dialogue playing in your mind. Let your thoughts float by. Watch what you feel and think about... just observe, do not engage. During this meditation, you let your mind continue to think, but you don’t engage. You take the role of a passive observer and watch them from the back of your head.

If you start participating in your thoughts, try to count slowly from 1, 2, all the way to 10. Repeat when you reach 10. Each time your focus is deviated, take note of the last number you were reading — this is an indicator of how long you held you focus. Try again, restarting from 1, and try to go beyond the last number this time.

You should know that the presence of “your” thoughts during meditation means they are being cleared. In fact, these thoughts have always been in your mind, but now with the help of meditation they are clearing out, one by one. This technique will definitely help you find mental peace.

#5. Ending your meditation

When done, slowly ease into the physical state. Start off by being present of the physical reality around you. Next, be aware of your physical body. Then, very slowly, open your eyes. Get attuned to your surroundings. After returning to normal physical state, we recommend you continue sitting in the meditative place and reflect upon some of the thoughts, feelings or imagery that arose during your meditation.
