Well i personally meditate every day after I read a portion of the bible and meditating doesn't necessarily mean crossing ones legs but it means thinking deeply on one subject at a time therefore you could be sitting down at the table or lying in bed but meditating on the bible helps us to more or less repeat what we just heard to ourselves and really get the core matter of what God is trying to convey to us. If you are trying to clear every single thought from your head I am sorry but it simply can not be done we even think about random daily activities when we sleep.

Now that all the fundamentalist Christians have weighed in, I will intelligently and authentically answer your questions. 1. You are meditating when you decide to sit down and meditate. It is a practice. When you say you are practicing it, you are doing it. 2. You do not have to sit cross legged to meditate. You can sit in a chair or on your sofa (you can even do walking meditation). More important is to keep a straight (but relaxed) spine and neck (no slouching). If you want to sit on ground instead of a chair, sit on large pillow or you can buy meditation cushions or benches that are low to the floor help you sit more comfortably. 3. It is natural, esp for beginners, to realize that their minds may be very noisy and distracted when they want to meditate. Some types of meditation suggest that you simply sit quietly and recognize that thoughts are happening without following thoughts. They become quieter and more distant in time when this is done. Other techniques rely on concentration exercises such as focusing on your breath, or lightly watching a candle flame, or mentally reciting a short prayer, affirmation, or holy word with the rhythm of the breath. 4. At the beginning, sit for 10 to 15 minutes, once or twice a day. If you feel restless or discouraged, continue to sit for the whole time you've decided to allot for meditation practice. As you practice, it will be easier to meditate for the time allotted if you do this. Little by little expand the time you sit up to an hour. 5. Meditation can help you overcome depression if it is done in combination with other things to help you. Relaxation and specific guided visualization techniques are better than standard meditation for depression because sometimes depressed people get to brooding over their emotional state during meditation and this can make the situation worse. Aerobic exercise and a low-sugar diet is also helpful for depression. If you are seriously depressed, it is a good idea to speak with a doctor and get professional help.

1. stop noticing, just feel peaceful. Sign: letting go of a thought. 2. with more regular practice, body with become more accustomed. 3. if the thought about the world came, it came... you are neither attracted to it, nor repulsed by it. 4. slowly increase the time... 5min. in a month, if you're not reading any knowledgeable books or you are not guided by any Guru. 5. you help yourself, meditation only acts as a catalyst in that process. probably not the exact answers that you're looking for... sorry for that.. good luck friend :-)
