WHEN TO MEDITATE
Ideal times are before sunrise and in the evening, at sunset or before retiring, but any time that works for you is fine, especially if it can be the same time each day.
WHERE TO MEDITATE
At home, choose a quiet place where you will not be disturbed or distracted. If possible use the same place each day and it will soon take on a special uplifting and calming energy.
Make this space your own and fill it with anything you find uplifting – candles, flowers, beautiful pictures, spiritual images. Be sure you can sit comfortably on the floor on a natural
fibre rug, sheepskin or firm cushion. Alternatively, sit on a chair dedicated for this purpose.
Meditating outdoors, communing with nature in quiet solitude, is also a beautiful experience.
TUNE IN with the ADI MANTRA
Chant “Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo” three times before meditation.
This mantra is chanted in monotone except for the “Dev” which is one fifth higher. You can also choose to do a short yoga set or some warm-up exercises after tuning in.
SELECT AND COMMIT TO A MEDITATION
Be clear as to why you have chosen a particular meditation and what you wish to accomplish. Your meditation needs to be consistent with your goals and something which inspires you.
The clearer your focus and intention, the greater the power behind the meditation. Projection is powerful, so project the result!
To gain maximum benefit, fully commit to doing your meditation for a set number of minutes over a set number of days (see below). Remember that 3 minutes a day, every day, is more
effective than 31 minutes once a week. If you miss a day, do not become discouraged, just start again and keep up!
Habits, conscious and unconscious, control a great deal of our lives. Meditation can help us remove those habits which do not serve us and replace them with more positive, life-enhancing
40 days: Change a habit.
90 days: Confirm the habit.
120 days: You are the new habit.
1,000 days: Mastery of the new habit.
TO FINISH YOUR MEDITATION
Chant long “Sa-a-a-a-a-a-t Nam” three times (rhymes with ‘but mom’) – with hands together at heart centre.
