Hello therfan... Pwalls is correct, you need to start at the Newbie Central. But here's a part of a lesson we get from our group called Spirit Seers that was posted by our Priestess, Drakkenwitch.
Good luck to you and hope you find what you are seeking for.
Light Meditation is, perhaps, the easiest form of Meditation. It can be done within 5min or it can extend to half an hour, according to how badly you need it.
Simple Step-By-Step Instructions! (perhaps what many people need)
1) Relax your muscles and sit in a comfortable position with your back straight. Laying down is fine and may be a recommended position if this is your first Meditation.
2) DON'T clear your mind, focus on a happy thought. You can clear your mind if you want, but for a light meditation the point is simply to get rid of negative
feelings, so focus on something that makes you happy. For an example we will use: Ice Cream.
3) While focusing on Ice Cream; regulate your breathing. Every inhale should take five seconds, count them. Hold your breath for a second and release a five second exhale. Wait a second and repeat.
Continue this breathing process until you feel relaxed and at peace. Now don't just get up and go, NOW clear your mind. Let your own thoughts come back naturally to you, don't force them. Once you feel you are ready stand up and take on whatever
task you have to do next.
