When I meditate I sit "Indian style" , rest my hands on my knees and then just start out by concentrating on my breathing. You will find there are
several different ways your body breathes. I go in through the nose, out through the mouth. You should find a routine that works for you to clear your
-Stretch out abs and back before even sitting
-throughout the meditation I think it helps to remind yourself "do not dwell on your thoughts, acknowledge them but don't dwell!"
-learn the Chakras, what I do is start from the bottom and work my way up with each inhale/exhale cycle. I think of each color while working my way

you will find that there are many different techniques and forms of meditation. Personally I stick to "my" method only but I'm sure it wouldn't

meditation is 100 % its own practice, it can and may be used by ANY religion because it is not as much as a ritual other than a practice connecting to
the higher levels of consciousness
