Use your intuition and personal preferences to create a meditation ritual that works for you. I suggest creating a special space, that you specifically use for meditation and your other sacred practices. If you are unable to have a dedicated space, than create an atmosphere that feels peaceful before you begin.
Personally, I like to use incense or herbal smudges in my space. I use a smudge bundle or palo santo to cleanse my aura and the room. I may also light a candle. I sit on a cushion on a small, soft rug on the ground, but will sometimes sit on a pillow on my bed.
I suggest that you sit rather than lie down (if possible) during meditation. Your body is trained to sleep when lying down, and it is very easy to fall asleep while meditating if you are lying down. A cushion on the floor or a small cushion on a chair are preferred. If possible, raise the hips above the knees.
Meditation is not just about quieting the mind, it can also be used in a self guided way to heal wounds and traumas, pray for others healing, connecting and conversing with guides and ancestors and more! The included book will have several of these options, but they really are endless.
