Meditation is Easier Than You May Think
I think one of the biggest mindsets that gets in the way of a regular meditation practice is the thought I don’t know how to do this, or what if I don’t do this right? Meditation is actually easier than you think. Below I am going to include the necessary guidelines for a successful meditation.

The Good News Meditation Can Be Easy To Do and Maintain
The good news is successful meditation is much easier than you think. Anyone can meditate. As children we would naturally meditate as we day dream or get quiet and listen, our ability to naturally meditate gets programmed out of us as we grow into adults.
The good news is that tuning in and meditating on a daily basis is easy to regain.
All You Need to Meditate Successfully
Starts with a Decision
It all starts with your desire and willingness and a decision you make to meditate each day.
Only 10 Minutes Twice Per Day
You only need 10 minutes twice per day for effective meditation.
A quiet place and a comfortable chair for your back. Once you get good at meditating you will be able to do it anywhere and even standing.
Easy Breath Work
Your breath work is easy, simply breath deeply through your nose and breath out through your mouth. Just do 10 of these breaths and see the difference in how you feel. Notice the energy moving in your body and how this simple breathing exercise calms your mind.
Give Yourself Instruction to Still Your Mind
How to still the mind, give it some instruction. Tell yourself that all your random thoughts will be put on a train going by you. Every time you catch yourself caught up in thought simply put your thoughts on that train.
Give your self instruction and visualize this simple process. See the light of god coming in through your crown, flowing through your head and neck, down your arms and through your hands and fingers. Also imagine this light moving through your neck and chest moving down through your abdomen, right down your legs and feet. Then imagine this light anchoring you to the center of the earth.
Now repeat this process with pure crystalline light coming through your crown and moving throughout your body. Feel and allow this to take place throughout your whole being.
Let God/Higher Power Know
Ask God to bring the truth and the light through you. That whatever is not of the light leave you with grace and ease. You can say I am the light and the light is me. I like to say thank you and I love you. These phrases help clear any energy patterns not of the light within you. You can honor whatever your spiritual beliefs are here. Put this in a context that will work for you.
Create Sacred Space Within You
Create a sacred place in your mind. This is a place will you can totally relaxed and relish the experience. Listen and be still. Feelings and insights may come to you and have a journal nearby so you can right them down.
Let Go of Your Expectations
Remember each meditation experience may be different so understand this and do your best not to have a preset idea or conditions on what your experience should be like.
Be Consistent in Your Daily Practice
Be consistent by meditating twice per day for 10 minutes at a time. Your consistency will pay off huge dividends in your life.
