Walking around and quieting your mind is easy and relaxing. Walking in the early morning is absolutely the best.
I mean really early. The silence of the morning without traffic and listening to the birds is wonderful.

I start my meditation by just noticing the environment. I take note of the colors around me, the wind that goes through my hair and the mood my environment and the sounds sets . I always take deep breaths as I start out. Take big, steady strides- not necessarily fast, but steady. Then, when I feel like I’m in sync, I begin to consciously turn my mind off.
I concentrate on my breathing. I inhale for two or three steps then I exhale for the next. If any thoughts come to your mind, discourage them and get back in your rhythm. I just ignore myself. Before I know it I am engrossed in doing nothing but moving and I am as relaxed as if I were in my sitting meditation position. Your pace matches the rhythm of your breathing. Your pulse is slow and steady. I thoroughly enjoy nothingness.

Often my spirit will divulge important messages to me as if by osmosis;; they just occur completely. Not thinking, but as a sensation, a fact a feeling, not as a thought. From these messages decide upon a few words to use repetitively. Invariably this phrase touches exactly upon what my spirit and soul know I need to address. Continue, you will know when it is time to return.

People who are enlightened both in body and mind have since long been practicing walking meditation. The two practices go together naturally. Both give the time and space to connect with your spirituality.

Silent or with music, anything goes. It is up to you. Choose what works for you best. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Try it all and then decide what works best. But as in normal meditation try to be consistent and try to practice walking meditation every day. Also try to practice at the same time every day this will more easy grow into a daily habit without much effort.

This is just an introduction you can find more on walking meditation from different sources. The important thing is that you get started and try to uphold a daily practice. Good Luck to you.
