Joshua 1:7-8 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Only you be strong and very courageous, that you may do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you. Turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.

Keep in mind, for instance, that it's common for your mind to wander during meditation, no matter how long you've been practicing meditation. If you're meditating to calm your mind and your attention wanders, slowly return to mediation,  and focus on the word.

Experiment, and you'll likely find out what types of meditation work best for you and what you enjoy doing. Adapt meditation to your needs at the moment. Remember, there's no right way or wrong way to meditate. What matters is that meditation helps you reduce your stress and feel better overall.

Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health.

And these benefits don't end when your meditation session ends. Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may improve certain medical conditions.

Meditation is an umbrella term for the many ways to a relaxed state of being. There are many types of meditation and relaxation techniques that have meditation components. All share the same goal of achieving inner peace. You just have to find out which one works for you best.

Here are some ways you can practice meditation on your own, whenever you choose:

  • Breathe deeply. This technique is good for beginners because breathing is a natural function.

    Focus all attention on your breathing. Concentrate on feeling and listening as you inhale and exhale through your nostrils. Breathe deeply and slowly. When your attention wanders, gently return your focus to your breathing.

  • Scan your body. When using this technique, focus attention on different parts of your body. Become aware of your body's various sensations, whether that's pain, tension, warmth or relaxation.

    Combine body scanning with breathing exercises and imagine breathing heat or relaxation into and out of different parts of your body.

  • Walk and meditate. Combining a walk with meditation is an efficient and healthy way to relax. You can use this technique anywhere you're walking, such as in a tranquil forest, on a city sidewalk or at the mall, or a place that God takes you in your quiet time.
  • Engage in prayer. Prayer is the best known and most widely practiced example of meditation. Spoken and written prayers are one of the most powerful tools of mediation, and it is effective.
  • Read and reflect. Many people report that they benefit from reading the word of God, poems, inspirational books, and writing in journals. and taking a few moments to quietly reflect on their meaning. Is one of the most relaxing and peaceful moments of mediation. 
  • Focus your love and gratitude. In this type of meditation, you focus your attention on loving yourself, loving your family, helping others, being a blessing to the people in the kingdom of God. However, compassion and gratitude for your thoughts are how God gives you the next direction of what he wants and needs you to do next. You can also close your eyes and visualize a place in the heavenly realms, where God want you to go next. 
  • Lose yourself in Gods word, meditation, and in the Spiritual Bliss of Heaven, and watch how prosperous you be in everything you set your hands too.
My eyes anticipate the night watches and I am awake before the cry of the watchman, that I may meditate on Your word.

This is awesome; there are times when you need to meditate instead of talking, trying to handle a situation. It helps to brings in perspective, it helps cleanse your thoughts, bring you out of you (natural) and into God’s Word (spiritual).   

Blessings Pastor Patricia, yes meditation is vital. We would even say it is Mandatory. Why do you think God put it in his word more than once? It is in( PS 1 and Josh 1) and other scriptures for us to be in tune with him at all times. Why do you think the Body of Christ do not teach or focus on meditation? Can you please explain to the class in details? 

I think God placed it in His Word more than once because; Jesus is our example; He went off to pray and meditate even before He went to do an impossible act, "saving our lives". So as followers of Christ we are to do the same, to HEAR God, to get specific instructions, to develop an serious relationship with God. One thing that God brought to my attention most people and especially church folks, simply don't like being by themselves, and developing a relationship it  comes from tools and one tool is meditation. They don't teach it because most don't do it and it may cause some questions they can't answer, even more so, by meditating you will find out he truth and most leader don't want the truth to be told, they'll loose control in which never was there.  

Ne'eman i admitt I need to meditate more.  

Ne'Eman Meditation is the key in everything because it is allowing to control our minds and how we need to excel in life and get stronger in everything. Like for example our gifts, our business, our realationshift within ourselves and the Lord. So this what it is preparing us for.
