It is important, in whatever practice you are doing, to cultivate mindfulness, alertness and carefulness in when you rise from meditation. Through inculcating these habits in your mind, then they will arise for you in the bardo. When the habits of mindfulness, alertness, carefulness, and so forth arise in the bardo, they will cause the appearances of the bardo to be far less overwhelming, you will gain more control over what happens to you, including more control over your rebirth.
from the book Journey of the Mind: Putting the Teachings on the Bardo into Effective Practice
