Find a quiet place to do your meditation. Find a comfortable posture and then take a short time to settle before you go on.
Close your eyes and take a deep cleansing breath to let go of stress and anxiety from your mind and body. Now continue to breathe deeply and picture that you are breathing in a blue wind of healing air that enters your stomach and fills every part of your body, making it shine with positive energy. Now exhale the air and visualize it as a dark heavy cloud of drained energy and tension leaving your body, making you feel a lot more relaxed.
Continue to breathe in the healing air and let it fill your body and make you feel relaxed and free of anger. Whenever thoughts enter your mind, just return your focus to your breathing and continue with the meditation exercise.
Do this breathing meditation for as long as you need. If you are a beginner, you probably want to start with just a couple minutes meditation as you will have to get used to sitting still and focused for long periods of time.
So start your meditation practice the correct way for you and enjoy the great journey.
