Meditation, simply put, is aligning Mind, Body and Spirit, so that these three components function as one. Meditating is the practice of quieting the mind of all its chatter as to be open to the thoughts of the universe.  One can meditate on a given topic, such as a spiritual principle, a personal problem or whatever maybe requires further clarification or answering.

I am going to teach you the “1 – 2 – 3 – 4” Method of meditation.  In time you will require no technique at all and you will enter into a meditative state any time and any place you choose.  It is best to meditate in the morning before you start your day and in the evening before retiring.  You may want to purchase a “count down” timer and set it for 30 minutes as you may lose track of time when meditating.

As the name implies “1 – 2 – 3 – 4” Method is to say to yourself, in your mind, “1 – 2 – 3 – 4” over and over again.  The purpose of this is to focus your mind on the counting and away from the chatter that is constantly with us in our mind.  Also, as you are counting take and release some deep cleansing breaths.  There is no right way or wrong way to perform this meditation.  Do what you feel is comfortable and natural for you.  There is no need for stress or strain.
