Meditation - Away from the vagaries of life

According to Maria Duval, to achieve the required physical and psychic effects, your meditation session should last for at least 10 to 15 minutes, at the minimum, 5 minutes.

This is the amount of time you should set aside each day, to meditate, if you are not very used to staying still. But you will soon develop at taste for it, when you start enjoying the amazing benefits that these fews minutes can bring. You can then extend the session up to 25 or 30 minutes per day.

Find a really quiet place with least chances of being disturbed. Settle yourself in a comfortable chair or on a mat.

Sitting position is the best, because the aim of the exercise is not to become so relaxed as to go to sleep, but rather to achieve a state conducive to inspiration, illumination and intuition. It is important that you keep your back straight, but not too taut. Your feet ought to be steady on the ground. The best is that you can play some soothing and complementing meditation guide in the background.

There is no fixed definite time for meditation. Any time is a good time when you are used to it. With practice, you can bring yourself into a meditative state in a flash of your eye, at any time.

At this level, nothing 'outside' can have any effect on your anymore, because you have learned to 'escape' from vagaries of life, just through the simple power of your mind!
