How to Meditate? There is no right way to meditate. Stillness and connection comes from opening and clearing blockages in the mental, emotional, physical, and energetic bodies. The physical practice of yoga asana and breath work or practices that condition breath to movement such as tai chi, qigong, and weight lifting are effective methods to open your channels. In time you will feel your breath body expand. Naturally you will want to sit and connect. The process happens organically but there are practices and guided meditations that can support your journey.
Why Meditate? In stillness and meditation, our brain states alter and move into deeper levels of consciousness. When plugging in, insight and divine wisdom pour through us like light moving through a tube. We are able to connect and receive inspiration, which we can apply in the world - inspiration for new creations, keys to learning lessons, solutions to problems.
In many societies today, the mind is overused and overactive. The mind does not know. The mind thinks. The mind processes and organizes information. We may choose to say, "let me meditate on that" rather than "let me think about that." Through meditation, we tap into infinite wisdom, which allows us to know and align more closely with ourselves.
