    There’s several ways you can meditate. Choose a technique that works for you. I find that not all techniques work for everyone. Different people have different feelings about meditation. Some feel you need to be taught by someone. My own feelings say that anyone can do it and you can find instructions in numerous sites and books. it just takes some practice to get ‘right’.

    The three mediation techniques that I use include creative visualization, guided meditations and relaxing the mind. Creative visualization requires you to focus on an idea and all things related to that idea. An example of this would include ‘nature’. You would think about how it helped you, how you can help it, how people have screwed it up and how we’re trying to heal it. If any thoughts besides those pop up, you ignore them. Just let them pass 🙂 . Imagine yourself helping the earth and nature in positive ways.

    Guided meditations are similar, but instead of you doing your own creative visualizations, someone guides you through a pre-written scene. You can even write your own and have someone record the scene for you. You let the images that come to you enter your head. If creatures come to speak with you, you ‘speak’ to them. sometimes you can work out problems this way. It’s one of my favorite techniques 🙂 .

    The last is ’emptying’ the mind. You sit or lay down in a comfortable position. Then relax your mind. It’s harder than it sounds. It’s basically letting thoughts surface in your mind but you don’t think about them. Let the thoughts come without judging them.

    With everything, start off with a five minute session and work up from there. The ideal sensation you want to get is that of peace. It’s identical to the feeling you get when you’re about to drift off to sleep but you’re still awake.

    I hope that helps. Good luck!

  3. The whole aim of meditation is,
    1. to calm your mind, and
    2. to focus the mind on one thing.

    If you sit down and close your eyes you will notice that your mind is jumping from one thought to another. Even though you want to concentrate on your breath you will find other thoughts also coming in between.

    In learning to meditate you must first learn to calm your mind. You do this by following every thought that comes into you mind. You must be like a Manager of a Hotel who stands at the entrance and observes the customers coming in. Without getting attached to the thoughts try to observe them. You will find that a thought comes in and that it goes nowhere and another thought follows it – try following that too – with same results. This way you will find that your thoughts gradually subside.

    Of course do not expect results in one or two days. Practise it for at least 40 minutes every day for at least 2 months you find that you have ‘killed’ your train of thoughts. I have practised for 1 1/2 years but still vagrant thoughts come in. The whole idea is to silence the mind.

    Thereafter start concentrating on your breath. Notice the breath coming in and going out. You should not concentrate only on the tip of your nose. Notice the breath coming in and thereafter your lungs getting filled and then gradually exhaling the breath.

    You should be able to get some guidance from the following sites,
