Meditation is a Spiritual technique that assists an individual to experience the inner dimensions of themselves by quieting their mind from thoughts and relaxing their body while releasing stress. Using various breathing techniques and focusing their mind on an object, a sound or the breath, an individual is able to alter his or her state of being from a stressful agitated state and begin to experience a more peaceful and calm existence.
Meditation has become widely used in hospitals, corporations and organizations to assist their employees to release stress and become more productive workers. Originally however, meditation, along with contemplation and prayer has been used for centuries to immerse oneself in the vibration of Unconditional Love and to merge oneself in Holy Communion with God.
Like any technique, meditation requires patience, practice and perseverance in order to experience the lasting affects of serenity, tranquility and peace that are the benefits of meditation.
