The best meditations are often done in a place of quiet, such as a room at home where you are not going to be disturbed. If you use the same area each time there seems to be a build up of residual energy that gives you a sense of grounding, finding your way becomes easier.
One place of quiet that I find to be best is in a local forest. Its not huge, more of a copse really but the normally background whistles and calls of the birds, and the percussion of the leaves and insects become louder, more tuneful as the meditation continues. It is like a very good meditation "sounds of nature" track, but much more. The energy of the unspoilt woodland, the smells of the leaves and flowers leaves your mind so much more open. The extra oxygen in the air also gives more energy on an organic level. The senses when surrounded by nature are so much more tuned in. The soundtrack stimulates the mind at the same time as the scents and feelings of the air passing over your skin and hair. If your eyes are open, the gentle swaying of trees and leaves against the background of a slowly moving tapestry of blue and white gives much more than staring at a candle.
Even in a city, there are parks and other open areas. It is well worth practicing meditation in these areas, focusing on the good energies and sounds that an oasis like this provides. 20 minuites meditating per day (don't worry you can take the odd day off) can help fight depression and anxiety, various stress and heart conditions and more, so give it a go. And if you can't get the soundtrack to meditate to in your city or town, why not download some music http://sacredmeditation.weebly.com/our-store.html
