Meditation has been practiced since antiquity as a component of numerous religious traditions. The positive effects are astounding and certainly deserve your contemplation and consideration. Research has scientifically proven that meditation is a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental state and more and more doctors are encouraging patients to practice meditation to cure many stress related illnesses.
One of the goals of meditation is the “mindful state,” which is awareness of objects, mind-states, and physical states but not attachment to them. This “mindful state” is one which recognizes distractions and attachments, and acknowledges them, in order to achieve awareness of one’s true nature. While a person in meditation does not dwell on possible objects of consciousness, he/she is yet mindful of them – a different sort of awareness without attachment.
Meditation is the key to your subtle (i.e. your aura) energy body. When you meditate, you do for the subtle body the same thing you do to your physical body when practicing body building… you increase the beneficial energies, you expand the limits of your consciousness. But unlike the physical body which is limited in size, the energy body is not limited at all – you can make it expand until it is infinite.
Tantra meditation techniques are designed to encourage and speed up the process of connecting the kundalini from top to bottom and to balance the vibrant male and female energies. When we feel these complementary energies balanced within, we feel like a whole and complete person, without the compulsory idea that we need another person to make us feel complete.
