Almost every shifting guide or video out there recommends that you meditate before shifting.

How to Meditate to Shift Realities
Meditation is a lot simpler (and more difficult) than most people believe.
You can practice any type of meditation you want. It’s all about unwinding your body and mind, in order to prepare for shifting.
As a beginner, I would suggest simply listening to a guided meditation (there are tons of good ones on Youtube). Here’s one that I like.
I enjoy meditations that help me forget about my daily problems, as well as meditations that provide me with positive energy.
The main goal of meditating before shifting is to be able to silence your wandering thoughts and calm the mind.
This can be extremely beneficial to practice if you have a lot of intrusive thoughts or difficulty focusing on your shifting methods.
Begin with 5 minutes per day and gradually increase the time as you find it easier.
Here are the steps on how to meditate to shift realities:
1) Take a seat.
Find a spot to sit that feels peaceful and quiet to you.
You can meditate sitting, lying down, or in any position that is most comfortable for you.
2) Set a timer.
If you’re just starting out, a short time, such as five or ten minutes, can be beneficial. My favorite app for meditation is Headspace. It’s a really simple app to use and is tailored for beginners. You should try it.
3) Breathe through your stomach.
Stomach breathing, as opposed to chest breathing, activates and grounds your diaphragm.
Place your hands on your lower stomach and notice how it rises and falls as you breathe. Take note of how your body feels. Allow your stomach to push your hand out.
Follow the sensation of your breath as it enters and exits your body.

4) Recognize when your mind has wandered.
Your attention will eventually leave the breath and wander to other places. When you notice your mind has wandered—in a few seconds, a minute, or five minutes—return your attention to the breath.
5) Be kind to yourself.
Don’t judge yourself or obsess over your thoughts. Simply return to the breathing practice.
Meditation can be challenging; don’t be too hard on yourself.
Things should be taken slowly! It’s okay to make mistakes.
6) Gently open your eyes.
Gently open your eyes when you’re ready. Take a moment to pay attention to any sounds in the environment. Take note of how your body feels right now.
Pay attention to your feelings and thoughts.
And that’s how you meditate for shifting realities.
You focus on your breath, your mind wanders, you bring it back, and you try to be as gentle as possible (as many times as you need to).

Can you Shift without Meditating?
Yes, you can shift to your desired reality without meditating.
Many people choose to meditate before shifting simply because it allows them to focus on getting to their desired reality.
To shift, you don’t need methods, meditation, or a script. All of these are simply tools that people use to make shifting easier.
You can shift by simply thinking about shifting. But it’s difficult to do, which is why various shifting methods and scripts do exist.
As you can see, meditating for shifting realities is a simple process.
Meditation is completely optional; you do not need to do it to shift. That being said, if you enjoy it and find it relaxing, go for it!
If you are new to meditation, I’d recommend starting with guided meditations.
