Breathe slowly and consciously, resting your attention on the ‘heart region’.
With each breath, say inwardly: ‘I’, ‘I’.  Do this in relaxation freeing your mind from other thoughts.

3. Dismissing Thoughts

Give free scope to your mind to think, but whatever thoughts the mind brings before you, say calmly: ‘Not wanted now. You are passing clouds. I am the sun.’

4. Meditation on a text

OM
I AM THE LIGHT THAT REVEALS THE PASSING THOUGHTS.
I AM SELF-ILLUMINED, INFINITE, ONE IN ALL.
OM
