1 Create a sacred space
Your environment impacts your mood, therefore it is important to create a sacred space. This can mean simply switching all phones or sound-creating machines off, or even lighting candles, playing soft or relaxing music and burning incense.
Meditation can be done by focusing on the breath, the third eye (the space between your eyebrows) or through visualisation. The intention plays a role in the meditative experience you may have.
3 Breath work
There are various forms of breathing that can be practised in order to take you into a deep, relaxed state. Start by breathing into your belly and deep exhalation. Advanced types of breathwork can also be practised under the guidance of a facilitator.
4 The Right Clothing
It’s important to wear loose and comfortable clothing so you can hold the meditation position comfortably and your clothes do not become a form of distraction.
It’s important to stretch the body or practise certain Yoga postures before or after meditation. This helps to quieten the mind.
