At its core, Spiritual Meditation is the mindful practice of connection to something that is greater, vaster, and deeper than the individual self. It may seem paradoxical, but the path to that connection passes through honest self-reflection. While there are many meditation techniques that look to increase spiritual awareness, they all require an attitude of integrity and authenticity when looking at ourselves and how we view the world. 

Different religions practice meditation in different ways. Mindful practice isn’t limited to any particular faith or religion—anyone can follow a guided spiritual meditation. The blessings of spiritual meditation can have a ripple effect: as our awareness and spiritual confidence increase, so do our desire and ability to be of benefit to others.

The journey to spiritual awareness through meditation takes time. Progress is definitely not achieved overnight; promises of a quick fix are implausible at best. It takes plenty of discipline and practice to achieve spiritual realization, but the long-term benefits are incomparable. For those whose spiritual lives are important to them, there is no more worthy effort. (Mindworks)

Spiritual Meditation is an experience that takes you to the depths of who you are. You, as your real self, stripped of all the perceptions you had about yourself until that point in your life. In the process, you have the potential to experience joy and peace. 

Spiritual Meditation can help you realize ‘eternal truth’ and let go of all that has happened and will happen. The present is where you want to be and find solace. The need to practice Spiritual Meditation comes from an innate longing to see and think beyond the chaotic world surrounding you. 

  • Spiritual Meditation releases and settles our thoughts and emotions
  • It relaxes your nervous system and helps your body unwind from stress
  • It helps you to let go of the past and sink into peace
  • Spiritual Meditation helps you realize who you really are
  • It empowers you and helps you reach your higher consciousness. (University of Houston, US)

Traditions worldwide employ Spiritual Meditation as a way to connect to the divine. It can be practiced at home or in a place of worship. This practice is beneficial for those who thrive in silence and seek spiritual growth.

There are thousands, if not millions, of religious and spiritual traditions that include Spiritual Meditation in many different forms. Just a few examples of Spiritual Meditation in major religious traditions include:
  • Hindu Japa Mala and Mantra Meditation
  • Sufi Dhikr or Remembrance of God
  • Jewish Kabbalistic practices
  • Loving-Kindness or Metta Meditation in Buddhism
  • Marananussati Bhavana or reflection on one’s mortality in Theravada Buddhism
  • Zazen Meditation in Zen Buddhism
  • Trance States in Shamanistic traditions
  • Christian Contemplative Prayer

Unlike other forms of meditation, Spiritual Meditation is about more than stress reduction or relaxation. The intention to connect to something greater than yourself.

Spiritual meditation is a highly individual experience that can feel vastly different for each person. Whether you feel an automatic connection to something deeper or feel nothing at all, experts agree you shouldn’t try to force it.
