There lots of wonderful benefits of meditation.Meditation is only process in that you can touch or feel your soul.It gives a lots of energy to us and also gives some unbelievable powers to you like Sixth sense, Telepathy etc.

@MarkBenson,
Frankly, I doubt all those kinds of claims. I have meditated almost steadily (except for a few years of university graduate study--then it was unsteady) since 1961 (what is that, 50 years?). The gains have been much more prosaic but more important. Nothing has happened of a spectacular or supernatural character, but the realm of the everyday and natural has benefitted profoundly. I recommend it to everyone--without extravagant promises. I'm still a bit of a jerk, but a very happy one.
Please keep in mind that I have forgotten, while writing the above, all that I have written in this thread so far.

I have not found it to yield energy,
but I HAVE found some flashes of pre-cognition
(never anything significant).

I suggest that meditation NOT be done near valuable equipment,
e.g., not near your computer (especially not when it is ON) nor in your car.

I wish I could answer you question but I hope you don't mind if I piggy back on your thread
to see if anyone could provide a thoughtful piece of advice regarding the hows of meditation.
What I have done is exclude thawts from my mind;
i.e., contemplate darkness and silence
(expecting interferences of extraneous thawts,
and brushing them off, without getting emotionally upset, nor frustrated about it).

Of course, it is much better if u vote Conservative Republican.

For the peace of MY mind,
when I was 8, I got myself a .38 Smith & Wesson revolver.
That was very effective. I felt tranquil & serene.
I still do, but I upgraded to a .44 special with hollowpointed slugs.

Maybe I shoud have said:
for the piece of my mind,
I got a .38 Smith & Wesson revolver.

I have since upgraded to a .44 special revolver.

HAPPY PEARL HARBOR DAY!

Meditation is inherently healing on all levels - physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. It purifies and harmonizes us and opens our heart, open us to the universal Love and to the infinite Knowledge. Both peace of mind and happiness are true benefits of meditation.

1- It lowers oxygen consumption.

3- It increases blood flow and slows the heart rate.
4- Increases exercise tolerance.

@The Pentacle Queen,
If I may quote a passage from a book entitled The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiesan..
"In zen, one seeks to empty out the mind, to return it to the clear, pure stillness of a seashell or a flower petal. when body and mind are one, then the whole being, scoured clean of intellect, emotions, and the senses, may be laid open to the experience that individual existense, ego, the "reality" of matter and phenomena are no more than fleeting and illusory arrangements of molecules. the weary self of masks and screens, defenses, preconceptions, and opinions that, propped up by ideas and words, imagines itself to be some sort of entity (in a society of like entities) may suddenly fall away, dissolve into formless flux where concepts such as death and life, time and space, past and future, have no meaning. There is only a pearly radiance of emptiness, the uncreated, without beginning, therefore without end."

This, I suppose, is the state one wishes to enter when delving into meditation.

@thflower,
I like your statement, especiallly how meditation "harmonizes and OPENS your heart..." (but to "universal love and infinite knowledge" is a bit much for me). I like to think it opens one's heart and mind to the ordinary, everyday events and experiences of the here and now.
