Have a regular time and place for your meditation practice; the most conducive are dawn and dusk. Make yourself comfortable with pillows, cushions, rugs or even a cosy chair. Ensure that you are warm enough; use a blanket to cover yourself if you get cold. Make sure you will not be disturbed during meditation - allow at least an hour.
A sacred circle
Some people create a sacred circle as protection while meditating since it prevents outside unwanted energies influencing the meditator. Place four candles in secure holders in each of the four compass directions, making sure they are placed away from fire hazards, You can use more candles to represent the angel with whom you are working.
Crystals may be used instead of, or as well as, candles. Some people like to stand in the centre of the circle and use their finger or Clear Quartz crystal to draw a circle of light; go clockwise (deosil or sunwise) to create the circle and anti-clockwise to close it.
