Meditation can be a transformative experience, allowing you to escape the chaos of everyday life and find inner peace. While this description of mediation is ideal, many find themselves getting nowhere through their practice and may even give up before reaching tranquility. To avoid this pitfall, there are some preliminary steps you should take before starting your meditation practice.

In the immediate present moment, your physical space plays a significant role in your ability to generate a peaceful aura. Therefore, creating a serene and calming environment that promotes relaxation and helps you achieve the stillness required for meditation is essential.

Imagine entering a cluttered and disorganized room with distractions and unnecessary items scattered about. One's external environment will reflect their internal state. By decluttering, cleaning, and purifying your space, you can create an oasis of tranquility perfect for meditation.

But a clean and serene environment alone won't get you there. Your mind plays a crucial role in your meditation practice, and it's essential to address any emotional baggage that may be hindering your progress. Take the time to reflect on your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Identify any unresolved emotions or issues that may be occupying your mind. It's okay to feel overwhelmed or anxious, but by journaling, practicing forgiveness and acceptance, and seeking support from friends, family, or a mental health professional, you can address these emotions and find inner peace.

Another important quality in finding mental balance is by carefully curating the content you choose to consume. In meditation, you may experience flashes of countless memories of all your experiences. Filtering out unpleasant media from your daily cognitive diet will give you less information to process through meditation.

Alchemist, you must observe your behavior and lifestyle and see them as the ingredients that go into your meditation. When attempting to be fully awake in the present moment, nothing should be dragging down your momentum toward finding stillness.

Continue down the path you've begun; treasures await those who build good habits and develop high consciousness.
