The meditation position known as the monolithic state is a state of magnetic stillness achieved by sitting in a royal and upright position.
You feel earth’s magnetic field and your own field.
Also known as the royal posture, this is the preferred meditation position for doing Heart Rhythm Meditation.
When this meditation posture is attained, it has an immediate effect of producing calmness and peacefulness. You have more tolerance and accommodation of others. You may also feel more sympathetic and helpful.
We are quieting the body by using the 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. Let your everyday breath just happen. Allow your mind to do whatever it wants to do and try to focus on the breath. Being with your breath is like being with a good friend.
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.
If you practice this every day, you will see some wonderful changes in your life because it’s the first step towards self-control and self-observation.
You will become aware of some very basic processes that go on inside yourself.
