You do not have to be in any particular mind space before meditating! It helps, but everyone has to start somewhere, and the first meditation linked on this page, the simple centering breathing exercise, is a good place to start if you are new to all this.
The idea of having to be in a good space for meditation before starting is kind of like the idea of having to get clean before you take a shower!
Most meditation exercises are best done in a calm and quiet atmosphere, with a comfortable place to sit or lie down.
Often, lighting candles and/or insense, turning the lights down or off, and choosing some soothing music, or music made for meditation can be helpful.
Some meditation practices call for specific things along those lines, whether a particular soundscape, certain candles or incense, or the like, but most are pretty flexible. In fact, there are NO hard and fast rules when it comes to meditation, really, though there are things that have been found by a lot of people to work better than others. The best thing to do is experiment and find what works best for you. That said, if you are brand new to meditative practices, at least try following the directions exactly on some of the following exercises, especially if you have tried meditation before and it "didn't work".
It is important to note that the guided meditation mp3 files are meant as a companion to the written versions, rather than a substitute. You should always read the page all the way through before beginning a meditation, whether you are using the mp3 or not.
The following list of meditation practices/exercises are arranged, for the most part, in order of the most basic and simple, to the more advanced techniques. More will be added to the list, over time, so continue to check back, or subscribe to be notified of changes at the bottom of the page.
• Simple Centering Breathing Exercise - This is suitable for everyone from a complete beginner up to someone with 20 or more years experience. It is a quick exercise that can help you get into a meditative state, or just to get yourself in a better mood - otherwise known as "centered", when needed.
