Meditation is a method of concentration used to enter an altered state of consciousness. This can be anything from simply relaxing to entering a place where spiritual healing or psychic journeying can occur.
Meditation can take many different forms, such as mindfulness, emptying the mind, or being guided by someone else to see different visions and experiences with the mind’s eye.
Meditation can be an excellent way of reducing stress and bringing the focus into your life. When done correctly, it should not:
- Involve strenuous concentration
- Make you feel that you are not in control of yourself or your situation
- Involve mental gymnastics
Meditation, when done properly, is simple, relaxing, and beneficial to your mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical self.
