    What Is The Best Meditation?

    WHAT IS THE BEST MEDITATION METHOD? If one wants only relaxation for relaxation's sake, then he need not be extra choosy in picking a method. But if his desires are the loftiest it will take discrimination to land a meditation technique which accommodates the...

    There comes a point in ur practice

    when mind says its not benefiting by meditation. There is no visible benefit of meditation ur intellectual mind can find. But u will need to continue meditating to reach the goal. Perseverance is the key to success in mediation.

    It was one of those days

    when i could barely feel the energy stirring inside of me, like it was blocked at every chakra, stagnant. And i know what was blocking it. It was the same dilemma that used to haunt me for the last 19 years "I'm not pretty enough" And so i sat down, in my room, with a calming...

    Meditation helps me to become more grounded in

    the moment. I can slow down and see past disappointments and future worries as just mind activity. These thoughts are like passing clouds and meditation has helped me to acknowledge this. When the clouds part, there is just "now" and that is always an opportunity. I love...

    Goal of meditation is to become aware of the one

    who is meditating. If we have not changed our false understanding of life and who we are even after meditating for years then we havent derieved anything much useful out of it. Expansion that should follow will only come with active involvement of intellect to dissolve our...

    Meditation can get you high off of you just

    "being you." Imagine getting buzzed off of an energy field that is so powerful, it takes nothing more than you dropping into yourself to experience it. Here's all you have to do: 1. Sit quietly. 2. Close your eyes. 3. Focus on your breath in and out. 4. Allow yourself to "be...

    The Empty Mind, Open To Anything

    There is a wide difference between the empty mind and the mind which is relaxed and controlled so that only good can survive therein. The unoccupied mind is an open invitation for entry by unwanted forces.  The relaxed mind which doesn't get in the way of spiritual sight is the...

    I find that it brings me back to my "source"

    "Meditation is a simple process

    that gives you a little distance from your own mind and your own body," explains realized yogi, Sadhguru. "You have probably heard of the word 'Buddha.' 'Bu' means 'buddhi,' or the intellect. 'Dha' means 'dada,' or one who is above. One who is 'above his intellect' is a Buddha...

    When I meditate, I feel a strong pressure on my

    forehead, then some other part of my vody... Like eyes or face, throat, etc. I also feel as if an electric vibration is passing between my thumb and finger. Then sometimes there is like an electro magnetic field around some part of my body.. Does anyone know more about this.

    resist to open the window and take a deep breath of the chilly outside air. Once my family went to sleep, I snuck out my window and sat on the grass. Only in my rugby shorts I figured I'd be cold but the wind felt very cleansing and refreshing. I proceeded to sit in a mediative...

    From the spiritual point of view,

    to meditate is to try to disconnect from day to day problems in order to reach a state of serenity which allows us to listen to our inner voice. This helps us to improve ourselves, to see our defects and begin to live through feeling. To meditate implies analyzing oneself in...

    I meditate often at night to help me sleep.

    I love how meditation gently encourages me/forces me to breathe slowly and deeply, which helps my body and mind to relax. I also love how meditation (especially body scans) helps me feel more connected to my body, which makes me want to take better care of it. Lately, I've been...

    When Meditation Makes You Stop Breathing
