Wikipedia defines meditation as any of a family of practices in which practitioners train their minds or self-induce a mode of consciousness to realize benefit.
Meditation is not affiliated with or based in any religious teaching.
Yes, meditation is extremely valuable. It will calm you down. It will make you feel more relaxed. It will give you the inner peace that you are able to find your own answers and chart your own path.
Very few people can do it. Most people lost their interest along the way ..
The most common labels thrown at these people are that their minds are so unfocused… so undisciplined… and so weak.
The main reason why most people failed to learn meditation at the very beginning is because they were misinformed about the real concept of meditation and what are other options available for them.
Some of them were taught or made to understand that meditation is a situation where people sit down and do nothing .. this is known as Silence Meditation. The concept of making an effort to still your mind is a pure nonsense for most people as thinking is a basic needs for us as a human being ..
The solution is simple .. if “sitting down and do nothing” meditation technique does not work for you, you should try another one. I am not going elaborate more about meditation style because there are hundreds of meditation style and most of them are Silence Meditation.
Many people, even among reiki and meditation instructor themselves tend to misunderstood the most basic concept of meditation and fall into ideas that the only way to start learning meditation is through Silence Meditation.
How can you relief stress by doing something forcefully and against your will ?
The answer is you can’t.
The truth is there are no rules in choosing which types of meditation method that suites yourself. Basically there are only two category of meditation; Creative Meditation and Silence Meditation .. there are major differences between both method and it is entirely your rights to choose which best suites your needs or the combination of both ..
Let us go through with the definition of each category to better understand meditation.
Most people tend to define Creative Mediation as being creative in visualization and imagination. This is entirely wrong definition, i will tell you why..
Being creative and imaginative is not required and not the main element of meditation. If you are giving too much focus in your own imagination you will get distracted from reaching the main goal of meditation that is to achieve enlightenment and higher level of consciousness. In the end you will get stuck in a realm created by yourself that are filled with your own imagination and wishful thinking. Believe me you wont like it if you fail to turn it off.
Now, this may sounded a bit rude to some people who believe that they have achieved enlightenment through Silence Meditation.
I am not saying that it is impossible to do so but it is rather slower and not a proper method for everyone especially for beginners. The main point of this artcle is to emphasize more on the importance of redefining and to differentiate the basic concept of meditation.
It is very dangerous to play around with your own imagination as it will likely to make you prone to hallucinating the thing that you visualized.
Visualization alone does not turn our dreams into reality. It is just a small parts in realizing the dreams itself.
Enlightenment is a state/phase/journey where your soul travel from certain level of consciousness to another, it happen in reality and not just an imagination or thing that you visualize. It is beyond that!
As your level of consciousness increases your soul will travel from Human realm to Cosmic realm, Angelic Realm and finally you will arrive at the Divine Realm. You are very much aware of everything that’s happening at every state of your spiritual journey. I will elaborate more on what you will be seeing in each realm on the next posting. So stay tuned !
