meditate in the morning or before you go to sleep. Make meditation apart of your daily routine by keeping your thoughts in a space of love. this keeps u connected to your source.

Hi J. Blalock...thank you for responding. I think I like the idea of meditating in the morning to clear my head first thing and start my day fresh. Here's the thing, I've never done this before; any suggestions on how to get started? I have the PERFECT environment for it as I live on a 100 acre farm with lots of fields and birds and trees with a beautiful front porch overlooking it all.

Wow! sounds relaxing. You can go outside in a comfortable spot and sit and relax and just think about nothing while deep breathing. I think this would be a good start. You can start in the morning when the birds are the most active; this is relaxing to me. You can do this for about 5 to 15 minutes in the morning (morning if you want). But it doesn't take that much. You can ask questions you want answered or remain quit. Good luck ;)

Meditation first thing in the morning is the best. And do it every morning. The thing to remember is that meditation is not about blanking the mind but focussing it. A seed thought is a great help. I start with a mantram to focus my mind, and there are any number of mantrams that can be used. There are some excellent mantrams here: http://www.lucistrust.org/en/service_activities/e_mantrams

Then, after saying the mantram, hold the mind at as high a point as you can achieve, then focus on the seed thought, which can be a visualization or a sentence of high quality, just about anything that you can focus on for say, five minutes.

Then recite another short mantram to bring you back into your daily consciousness, and think how you can express the understandings gained in your daily life, in service to others.

Close with a mantram such as the Great Invocation, and sound three OM's at the end.

That's a very simple meditation practice, and one that can be varied by choosing a different seed thought say, once a week or so.

John Bryan teaches how to develop your own internal Random Access Memory to use when confronted with a stressful situation. Following the principals outlined in this very readable book, a reader automatically searches their newly developed memory with the speed of a highly developed RAM and pulls up the "affirmations" loaded into your internal RAM, which provide instant guidance to resolve stressful decisions in a positive manner. http://inputoutputgame.com
