Edgar Cayce's Meditation for Everyone
Remember that meditation and a healthy body can

program for maintaining good health. Good health
practices in your daily life will aid your meditation
life. Below are areas to which you might want to pay

- Eliminate Toxins from Your Body
The elimination of toxins—the waste products left
over after the body has digested and metabolized its
food—is crucial to good health. You eliminate toxins
through your skin, lungs, bowels, and kidneys. The
following practices are all helpful:
- Breathe deeply and fully, remembering to
exhale completely. Breathing exercises
before meditation help here, but you should
also develop the habit of breathing deeply
throughout the day.
- Drink at least six to eight glasses of pure
water daily, which will help remove toxins
and wastes from your body.
- Bowel eliminations should be kept regular
through proper diet (including lots of fiber)
and exercise, especially walking.
Exercise will help keep your body healthy and aid in
stress reduction. Always check with your doctor
before embarking on any new program of exercise.
Moderate, consistent exercise is more helpful than
sporadic, strenuous workouts. Gentle stretching and
daily walks will go a long way toward keeping you fit
and releasing tensions.
Finally, remember that you are a whole person, with
all parts working together. Your attitudes and
emotions are vital to good health. As you meditate
daily, it will have an impact on your physical health.
