THE GOAL OF MEDITATION IS not TO CLEAR YOUR MIND. It is to connect your mind & body, resulting in more peace, balance, focus and clarity (to attain the highest level of consciousness possible).

 HOW AND WHEN TO START

  • Meditation practice starts with finding the time on a daily basis. The good news here is that not a lot of time is required.
  • Start small (2-3 minutes, or 10-20 breaths)
  • Be comfortable
  • Focus on your breath
  • 100 breaths meditation (count your breaths 100 times)
  • Timer meditation (set your timer so your mind doesn’t constantly wonder how much time is left)
  • Consult the doctor
  • A beginner can start with just a few minutes a day, eventually getting to 20 to 30 minutes a day as the benefits of the meditation become so obvious that it becomes the most important part of his or her day.
