Preparing your Body for Meditation
You need to prepare your body for meditation so get started now by getting a comfortable chair in a quiet place to begin your adventure. Let your body relax and focus on the simple exercises.
CREATE A QUIET ENVIRONMENT
with a straight backed chair. You do not need a special place, just a safe, quiet one.
SIT STRAIGHT IN YOUR CHAIR
with your feet separate and flat on the floor and your hands separated and relaxed on your lap. This posture opens your energy system so you can turn within and be open to yourself.
CLOSE YOUR EYES AND TURN WITHIN.
TAKE SOME SLOW, DEEP BREATHS TO RELAX YOUR BODY.
FOCUS ON YOURSELF
by listening to your breathing and your heartbeat. Breathe slowly and deeply throughout your meditation to relax your body by sending rejuvenating oxygen through your physical system.
BEGIN YOUR MEDITATION
with this posture and inward focus. Use the breathing to relax your body and to help focus your attention inward.
THIS IS THE TIME TO FOCUS
on you, the spirit, and to rejuvenate your body.
this posture and exercise for ten minutes a day.
