There are lots of different types of meditation practice. So find a place or make an arrangement so that guidance will be available whenever required. However, you do not have to be an accomplished yogi or Buddhist Master to practice meditation effectively, you don’t need to pretzel yourself into lotus pose – truly, for many of us, Lotus Pose is simply too physically challenging to allow focus.
On exhalation, choose a vowel, pitch and volume that feel comfortable and effortless, and sing a steady tone until you’re ready to take a new breath.

What can improve you meditation practice and your overall spiritual growth is remembering to look at yourself during the day. When I cannot, I ask help from God.

Always make sure that you inform someone that you are to be left alone when you are going to meditate as it can be dangerous if someone startles you suddenly. Ask for God’s help. You see a few minutes each day will give you abundant benefits, over time. You may want to do the same way as I do or you may find your own way of meditating or focusing.
