Find good meditative music.

Let the music or quietness open your mind to a positive place.
Think of the things you would like to discharge from the mind such as stress, anger, anxiety, hurt, or any other emotion. Picture yourself being free from these while breathing deep and focusing on what it is you are desiring at the moment. If you are wanting something positive for the future, meditate often with this positive affirmation in front of your mind.
Release these thoughts into oblivion and focus on positive and healthy conclusions.
The power of thought starts by the change within the mind then body, soul, and spirit. Love, hope, peace, forgiveness, contentment, are powerful elements to think on.
