Spiritual meditation is actually a practice of communicating to a higher being known as God. Traditionally, Christians regard spiritual meditation as prayer because the practice involves connecting with a higher being known as God. Similarly, Buddhists practice spiritual meditation by chanting words that have energy. Also, these mantras are good for tuning up one’s breathing as people normally hold all the tension in their chest by doing shallow breathing. Meditation promotes heavy breathing that infuses oxygen and calms the body.
Spiritual meditation was first practiced by the religious like monks and Buddhists. Mystics and saints are said to have practiced spiritual meditation since they are praying most of the time which makes them very profound beings. Truth is, many people ask intercession from the religious such as Buddhists when they have needs or petition that must be granted. Individuals that practice spiritual meditation believe that there are things beyond their control. There is a higher being that must be respected and depended upon.
It doesn’t matter what form of spiritual meditation you engage in as long as the fundamental concept of communicating with a higher power exists. There are several CDs, videos and online manuals that can guide you through a meaningful spiritual meditation.
