Choose Your Meditative Environment Carefully

Before you begin to meditate, you need to choose your meditative environment. What I mean by this is, you need to find a place to meditate which will allow for no interruptions or distractions.

I remember 2 summers ago when I was hiking in the Colorado Rockies. As I began my hike that morning, I came across a secluded mountain trail that weaved in and out of an almost tropical looking forest. The birds were singing and the leaves on the tress were swaying gently in the cool mountain breeze.

I remember removing my backpack and sitting against the tree off the main trail. I closed my eyes and began to meditate. I probably had one of the most peaceful and deep meditations I can remember, and I will never forget how connected I felt to everything after I finished that meditation.

Now, I realize that's not a realistic environment for most of us to have access to on a daily basis, but it does show just how the meditative environment that you choose can make a big difference in what you experience and how deep in consciousness you can go.

If you are one like myself who lives in a big city, and doesn't have easy acess to the mountains, you should at least designate a particular room in your house where you will do all your meditations.

If you live near a lot of traffic, try not to sit to close to a window, or if your house or apartment is small and you don't have much choice in the manner, invest in a pair of noise cancelling headphones. Noise cancelling headphones won't completely drain out all sounds, but they will eliminate some of the lower frequencies sounds, such as a dishwasher running, a computer fan, and it will reduce the amount of sound you hear from traffic. Investing in a pair of this type of headset is well worth it.
