There are some popular choices: yoga, Daoist and Buddhist practice. Secular yoga meditation provides a vehicle to calm down and letting go of some stress, slight increase of body immunity, and some benefit in treating some illness. When the yoga is practiced along with a philosophy, the meditation and good moral conduct promote longevity while the body ages. In the Eastern religion, the meditation is part of the practice dealing spiritual development. The meditation involves body purification, building strong inner peace, raising moral character via giving up bad habits and concepts, as to achieve Enlightenment. Here are some articles about… Read more »

First of all, I am a practicing witch. We meditate a lot. Meditation is the art of silencing the mind. When the mind is silent, concentration is increased and we experience inner peace in the midst of worldly turmoil. This elusive inner peace is what attracts so many people to meditation and is a quality everyone can benefit from. Meditation is finding your inner-self, feeling calm and relaxed and going with the flow of nature. I use to be very depressed. I was diagnosed as major depression, I also had sleeping problems. Like anything worthwhile, meditation requires practice. To get… Read more »

Meditation quiets the mind and rejuvenates the body (especially the nervous system). I recommend Zen meditation. To do it you sit cross-legged with a folded pillow under your posterior. Hands are together in your lap with the right hand under the left one. Straighten your back by arching it and then relax it but not totally. Pull your head back a bit. Touch the top of your mouth with the tip of your tongue. Breathe in thru your nose and out thru your mouth. Let your belly inflate with each inbreath. Half close your eyes so that there is less… Read more »

Before I go to bed at night, I sit for a half hour or so – with everything turned off – and let my mind go where it wants. That helps me “wind down”, and I go to sleep a lot easier. I think it helps my mind put things in order.

When I went to the Chopra Center for well being I was on my seventh surgery and very sick. deepak Chopra and David Simon taught me about meditation and how powerful it is. When I get sick again I always have stopped meditating, when I get back on track my health comes back. I think it slows down my mind enough to help me make smarter choices. Also the practice of realizing when my mind wonders (that happens a lot) and bringing myself back to the present moment helps me be more aware all day long. This link is to… Read more »

Meditation leads to ego death. Ego is the illusory I or little me.

Our minds get so bogged down with busyness and worry. we never give it a break! Meditation is the process of doing just that, giving your mind a break. Meditation is the process of clearing your mind of everything, of finding a peace and a calmness within yourself. it can be very refreshing. Find a nice quiet place, sit comfortably strait up not hunched forward with your hands together, slow and steady your breathing and concentrate only you your breath, eventually you will concentrate on nothing at all. My suggestion is to get a book that will help you to… Read more »

basically just quiet down your surroundings, maybe listen to very calming soothing music, or the sounds of nature, and just take deep breaths, spreading them out further and further. it calms down your mind and body and gives you an overall sense of peace
