You can sit on the floor or sit on some chair. If you choose to sit on a chair, you should be able to sit with your back as straight as possible. If you choose to sit on the floor, lean your back against something so as to keep your back straight. If you are too weak to sit, you can always lie down and meditate but sit up as soon as you can.
You need to have a surface of some kind in front of you where you sit. Some kind of shelf or table if you sit on a chair. If you sit on the floor, place a wooden carton or crate in front of you. Then place one or all of the following items on that surface.
- A pot of some plant.
- A scented candle.
- An incense burner.
- A photograph of someone who inspires you.
- Your own picture.
- An object in nature that you enjoy.
- A gem or a crystal that you like.
- Your birth stone.
While creating your meditation space, don’t be in a hurry. While getting things together you may start with a candle. Then slowly and steadily as your intuition guides you, you could add some other things to the collection.
