Focus on an object
In this type of meditation you can place an object like a
lighted candle on the floor or on a surface at the eye level
and place the attention on that object. Whenever the mind
moves away then bring it gently back to the flame. While
using an object in meditation, then use the object as a
neutral focal point to which your eyes can return whenever
you are aware that your attention has been moved. The object
must be very simple in shape and design as the main purpose
is to refocus the attention when it moves away.
