The meditation position known as the monolithic state or the royal posture is a state of magnetic stillness achieved by sitting in a royal and upright position. This is the preferred meditation position for doing Heart Rhythm Meditation.
We are quieting the body by using this meditation position. You can also use a pillow or a bench for this practice. Typically I’ve done this practice sitting in a chair. The main thing is to be able to sit comfortably for a period of time while keeping the spine straight and the chest open.
Try to have your heart center exposed forward so that you feel like you’re receiving energy through your heart.
Close your eyes and connect with your breath. Breathe naturally. Allow your mind to do whatever it wants to do and try to focus on the breath.
5 minute guided meditation on the Royal Posture
At this part of the practice we are just looking for a stillness of the body and for an inner awareness of yourself towards yourself.
Notice any thoughts you have and let them go like leaves floating by on a river.
Also look at how you feel and what your emotions do when you are so still. Just continue to focus on your breath and see what the response is of your emotions.
You can sit like this for quite a while just continuously focusing on the breath.
You will become aware of some very basic processes that go on inside yourself.
