I choose a subject and then think about it or a question that I want to answer.
I use the app calm however to meditate. I recommend this to people who like guided meditation since it has many to follow.
I like to meditate either silently or with uplifting soft music in the background utilizing a bell timer at 10-20 minutes.
I started by focusing on my breathe (that is the guide to mediation) but I find more wisdom speaking to the universe. I am still focused on something and internally so, but it is the only opportunity I get to reach deeply into the universe for answers and guidance.
