What is meditation?
No really, what do you think meditation is and how do you properly do it?
Do you believe it's more of a guided practice...
"close your eyes, now imagine yourself walking down a quaint pebble pathway, listen to the little birdies chirping..."
Perhaps, like this...
"close your eyes, now feel your toes relaxing as you wiggle them... slowly working your way up your left leg, feel it relaxing, relaxing, relaxing..."
What if we close our eyes and repeat short phrase...
“I am a good person, I am a strong person..."
Are any of those considered meditation? Actually, the above few examples are in-fact affirmation and visualization techniques, not so much meditation techniques. So then, what is meditation?
Meditation, simply defined, is learning to live naturally and to be in contact & control of oneself.
To live naturally is to become sensitive to one's innate intuition and the Universe's natural resources. To be in control refers to the inner levels of one's mind.
To accomplish this, one must first understand that meditation is multifaceted and based on the needs of the individual at any one moment in time. Therefore, we shouldn’t box-up a meditation routine / technique, teach it to the masses and expect everyone to arrive at their desired results.
Basics Everyone should know.
There are two basic types of meditation, Contact & Control. Contact meditation is widely practiced in the East and attempts to connect one's Higher-Self. More popular in the West, is Control where the individual practices controlling different levels of the mind through positive self-programming.
Note, in Metaphysical Science both methods are taught to allow the individual to achieve their greatest potential.
One highly effective technique of Contact is focusing one's five senses inwardly, shutting off the outside, physical world. When this is done, contact can more easily be made with one's Higher-Mind.
