1 SE­LECT SOUNDS

There are a wealth of good sound bath down­loads you might like to try. “A great sound heal­ing app is The Third Ear by Leo Cosendai,” Re:mind’s Yu­lia Ko­val­eva tells us: “It has recorded sound med­i­ta­tions with any of th­ese amaz­ing in­stru­ments.” For crys­tal singing bowls, try Crys­tal Heal­ing Trans­mis­sions (crys­tal-singing­bowls.co.uk) or her new al­bum Con­cep­tion by Crys­tal Light (avail­able on itunes). Sca­nia, mean­while, has a se­lec­tion of gong baths as down­loads (iamsca­nia.com).

2 WEAR LAY­ERS

It’s a good idea to opt for soft, un­re­stric­tive cloth­ing. Socks and a warm layer might come in handy too. Your body tem­per­a­ture is likely to dip when you’re in the med­i­ta­tion.

3 GET COM­FORT­ABLE

You’ll be lay­ing down for about an hour, so you need to en­sure you’ll be com­fort­able dur­ing this time. A good place to start is us­ing a yoga mat, soft pil­low and a fluffy blan­ket or two. If ly­ing flat strains your back, you may find it help­ful to place a rolled-up towel un­der your knees to sup­port it. Ev­ery body is dif­fer­ent, though, so spend a bit of time ad­just­ing your po­si­tion un­til you’ve got it right.
