About Meditation

Meditation is sometimes described as “listening to the silence between our thoughts”. Our effort in meditation is directed towards consciously increasing the periods of such silence. The ability to meditate is also a necessary condition to receive telepathic transmissions, including those from our Higher Self and other people who may try to assist us. Without a true silence in your own thoughts, you cannot listen to thoughts of others. Before meditation you may wish to define clearly what do you want to learn, what do you want to ask your Higher Self. During the meditation, do not expect an answer immediately, although it is likely that it will come; also be prepared to accept the answer even if it is not the one you would have liked to hear.

One of many benefits of meditation is that it opens your mind to new ideas. When the bowl is full, trying to pour more water into it just causes an overflow. The same happens with our mind. When it is full of thoughts, there is no room for new ideas. Meditation is a very effective technique for improving your creativity and problem solving capacity. “Talented” people do it naturally. Artists and poets call it “inspiration”. Many famous people such as Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison were known to have practised various forms of meditation. In addition to the above we also calm our mind relax our bodies and reduce our stress levels, all of which have a very positive effect in maintaining a well balanced energy field promoting better health. In addition to balancing our energy field, we also bring about balance physically, emotionally and mentally. Those who meditate report higher levels of self-esteem. The practice has also been used to help people quit smoking, conquer drug and alcohol addictions, reduce blood pressure and reduce symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome and menopause. Meditation aids in lowering heart rate and blood pressure by slowing down breathing, which reduces the amount of oxygen needed.

History of Meditation:

05Although there’s a paucity of recorded history on meditation, its roots travel back to ancient times. Researchers speculate that primitive hunter-gatherer societies may have discovered meditation and its altered states of consciousness while staring at the flames of their fires. Over thousands of years, meditation evolved into a structured practice. Indian scriptures called “tantras” mentioned meditation techniques 5000 years ago.

Buddha, “one of history’s major proponents of meditation,” and a major meditation icon, first made his mark around 500 B.C. His teachings were spread far and wide across the Asian continent. Separate countries or cultures adopted different forms of the word “meditation,” and they each found their own unique way of practicing it. Buddhist- and Hindu-based Easter-style meditation practices are still the most popular today.

Meditation was spread to Western society thousands of years after it was adopted in the East. It finally started to gain popularity in the West in the mid-20th century. In the 1960s and 1970s, many professors and researchers began testing the effects of meditation and learned about its multitude of benefits.
