Your posture in bed is important for a successful meditation. Sit with your legs crossed together, and your spine and head in an upright position. If you twist any part of your body it will create an imbalance that will make your mind drift. Drift your mind to think of a happy place. This can be a beach on a sunny day with your toes in the sand.

After the Bible study, when you are home and alone, you can meditate on what the word of God really says. You can close your eyes and imagine yourself communicating directly with God. When you notice you are slowly drifting away, concentrate on your breathing in order to bring that focus.
Silence during this time is of importance, since it is a form of healing. When we are in silence mode, we get a front row seat to see what we are thinking of in our mind.
