Spirituality and Meditation

I have been told that Spirituality cannot be explained it can only be experienced. In that sense, spirituality is quite different from religion since spirituality itself is a sequence of experiences not teachings or beliefs. This is how a person can be spiritual and be of any religious faith.

One of the most efficient and easiest ways to feel closer to God and to your inner light, soul, body or whatever else you may call is through meditation. When you meditate, you allow yourself to be at one with yourself, with your light, and with the universe as a whole. For those few moments that you meditate, your subconscious takes over and reminds you of what is our natural state; that of spiritual beings. We are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. Hence, we should not forget this and should feed our spiritual lives every day through meditation.

Even if for just a few minutes, regular meditation will help you spiritually, socially, and physically. Meditating can be an incredibly healing process for yourself both physically and spiritually. As you meditate, you will see the difference in yourself and how you see life and others.

Whether you are new to meditation or are an experienced meditator, guided meditations are one of the most popularly used meditation techniques used by people. They are extremely easy to follow, varied in purpose and subject, and extremely beneficial. This is why I’ve made a list of the very best guided meditations I have found so far for you guys.

Go ahead and check out The Big List of Free Guided Meditations which I update regularly with free guided meditations in both audio and video formats. Also, let me know what you think of them and any suggestions for new ones. I love to hear from you guys!

  • Meditation is proves very helpful as it gives us freshness and calm mind.

  • As of late,I have realized how much resentment I’ve been harboring toward
    certain Individuals.
    For once I do not want to look for a outward fix.
    Meditation has crossed my path over the years quite a few times.
    40 years later it has yet again.
    This time I paid attention.
    There is a lot of easy fixes out there but now it’s time to go within.
    Now for a great story.
    Since trying to actually contact my spirit guide lately
    I asked for a sign.
    A beautiful blue w/tiny diamond,
    antique ring from my grandmother was found outside my window today.
    There is no way it got from a locked safe to the place it was found.
    That’s it.
    Peace to all who read this. D.

    I’ve recently been meditating in the early morning hours. I’ve found this time to be very much – an awakening of my soul. Without the “noise” of normal life – I’m able to ‘hear’ myself at a much deeper level. And amazing things are beginning to happen in my life – is this a coincidence? I don’t think so. I think that meditation has been a huge benefit in me getting more in touch with “me”.

  • That’s great Nancy!

    I’m glad the information I posted was helpful to you.

    For anyone else who is looking for Buddhist or Hindu clothing, sculptures, or anything else, the link to this Buddhist and Hindu Store is here.

    This is a great post and gorgeous sari.

    Thanks for posting about the Buddhist and Hindu Clothing and Sculptures store.

    I just ordered a sari and a Buddha painting which I’ve been looking for for over the past 5 months!

  • Yes, the store that I linked on the page is really good. The store’s got gorgeous saris and Buddhist sculptures.

    That store sells saris that are absolutely gorgeous!

  • Sara Wilson says:

    Thank you for this post. There’s really a lot of confusion about spirituality and meditation and even religion. A lot of people mistakenly think they have to be of a certain religion or denomination to meditate. It’s great that you’ve made this site to show people the light about meditation.

    You really explain meditation and its benefits in a very easy to understand manner. Thank you so very much.

    Keep up the great work!
