Carolyn Cooper, our Energy Healing Expert
Meditation is like learning a musical instrument - you're not going to play Mozart your first time sitting down at the piano. It takes practice and commitment to reap the benefits of this ancient discipline. This means you'll need to make time for it every day. To get the most from meditation you need to do it every day at a time and in a place where you're free from distractions.
* Use a quite, serene area of your home in which to meditate. If you like, burn a candle or some incense.
* Try not to eat prior to a meditation session. The process of digestion makes you lethargic and sleepy.
* According to expert practitioners, meditating early in the morning is the best time. Many Buddhist monks say 3 a.m.is the optimal time. But few of us are Buddhist monks. So really, the best time to meditate is when you can fit it in to your schedule. Start out with 15 minutes. Set a timer so you won't fret about taking too much time.
