Elements of Meditation

Posture – Adjust your posture so that your spine is straight.  A straight spine allows energy to flow through the body.

Breath – Allow the breath to come and go naturally as you prepare for meditation.  Some meditations will specify a breath pattern.  If none is specified, breath long and deep.  Adjusting your breathing pattern affects the flow of thoughts and can alter your state of alertness. 

Mental Focus – Adjusting your mental or physical gaze stimulates different areas of the brain and creates a particular set of responses in the body, mind and spirit.  Focusing at the brow point or third eye is a common example of mental focus.
