How Do I Start?
If you have decided that you want to try Quantum Method Meditation and are wondering how to start, here's what you may do.
Start with practising Easy Relaxation. We say relaxation is like the 1 on the left of a lot of 0s, unless you are relaxed the meditation techniques are valueless.
After you have practised relaxation for a while, ideally twice every day for forty days, you may choose any meditation you want from the selected meditations section.
Please remember that learning meditation without a guide or accessories requires some patience. You will progress much more quickly and benefit much more if you take the Quantum Method Meditation Course.
Before you start however, it would be useful to familiarize yourself with some of the terms and techniques used.
The Alpha Station
Your Alpha Station is beautiful place which has a waiting room surrounded by dense woods, fountains, lakes, gardens or any other natural environment that you like. It is the place you reach when both your mind body system is completely relaxed and alpha waves are predominant in your brain. It is also the starting point in your journey towards your Quantum Home.
Create your Alpha Station in your imagination when you are meditating for the very first time.
The Quantum Home
Your Quantum Home is your mind’s own home. It is the place where your mind is free of all negativity, where it functions at the optimum level.
Create your Quantum Home in your imagination after you count down from 19 to 0 the first time you try Quantum Meditation.
Your Quantum Home can be situated in any peaceful natural surrounding of your choice. It can be beside a lake or river, in the middle of a park or grassland, at the top of a mountain, beside a waterfall, in a dense forest or even at the bottom of the ocean.
Wherever you build your Quantum Home, it should always be surrounded by joy and beauty. It can be a place that you have seen in real life and really liked, or something you design from your own imagination.
Inside the Quantum Home, there will be a large drawing room called the Darbar. A corridor to the right of the drawing room will lead to another large room, which will be your Healing Centre. In addition, you can add a study room, a rehearsal room, an acting stage, a prayer room, or any other room that you want. Whenever you come back to your Quantum Home, you can change it in any way you want.
Shanti ! Shanti! Shanti!
The word shanti, which is used in many languages derived from Sanskrit, including Bengali, means peace, rest, tranquility, or bliss. In Quantum Meditation Shanti ! Shanti! Shanti! is your code for relaxation. If you practice regularly, as soon as you say or hear the words Shanti ! Shanti! Shanti! your mind body system will automatically relax.
Mantras are positive words and sentences which when repeated over and over change your inner world, create new beliefs and vibrations which eventually change your reality. The ancient spiritual masters were all aware of the tremendous power of repeated positive statements. Nowadays known as autosuggestions, this simple and easy technique is also at the heart of many modern self development methods. You can learn more about mantras/autosuggestions in our Mantra Power section.
Your monchhobi is your vision for your future; it is a mental image of your goal. When we start believing in the image imprinted on our mind, our brain transforms it into reality using its immense power. Monchhobi is a powerful process of creating our own future by visualizing it.
Quoga or Quantum Yoga, is the latest and simplest version of ancient yoga.
You are almost ready.
Select a quiet place for meditating. Make sure there will be no distractions for some time. Choose a place that is well ventilated and is not completely dark. Soft light is best. Wear loose comfortable clothes during the practice.
Before you start relaxation, think of a recent incident that has brought you happiness. It doesn’t matter how trivial the incident was, what matters is the feeling it brought you.
You may meditate, either lying down, or sitting on a chair, or sitting on the floor in any comfortable Yoga or Quoga posture. If you sit on a chair, be easy and erect. Make sure your feet touch the floor. Rest your hands on your knees.
If you want to lie down, lie down on your back on a thin mat on the floor or a hard bed. The harder the better. If necessary you can place a thin pillow under your head. Place your hands on either side of your body, palms facing up. There should be some space between your feet.

After You Practice Relaxation for the First Time
Congratulations for meditating wonderfully. When you are meditating, remember:
1. After you finish meditation, it may feel like you were simply sitting or lying with your eyes closed. That you didn’t feel anything special. Don’t worry if this happens. Just continue practicing. Gradually you will start feeling more.
2. Your body might feel extremely heavy. This is a good sign. Your body is starting to listen to you very fast.
3. Your might feel hot and start sweating. This is also natural. Things will return to normal if you continue practicing for a few days.
4. You might get a lot of saliva in your mouth. This is also a positive sign. Your body is starting to relax very quickly.
5. Your throat may become dry. If so, think of something tangy, like lemon or tamarind. Your mouth will automatically become wetter.
6. If you meditate sitting, you will probably feel some pain in your neck, shoulder and back. This will also go away if you practice for a few days.
7. Some people- very few- feel dizzy or nauseous while meditating. If this happens take some long deep breaths while continuing to meditate. The discomfort will go away.
After you practice relaxation in this process twice everyday for forty days, you are ready to move on to other meditations. Pick any meditation from the Download Meditations list.
