Q-1: How do I quiet the voice inside my head while meditating?
There are several things you can do about it. First is accepting it and not fighting with it. You fight with it and feel that you should not have this noise. The more you want to get rid of it, the more it will stick to you...

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: I enjoy reading about different ways to meditate. Michael really gives a different angle to the practice making it practical for everyone.
