Spiritual Mediation - connecting with the Universe
Spiritual meditation is for those who want to connect with the Universe in the quietness of home or a place of worship. Spiritual meditation is practiced both in the Eastern and the Western world. Often we see the use of essential oils, frankincense, incense sticks to heighten the experience.
This is both an ancient and modern practice with silence being the only accessory needed for experiencing such deeper connections with either God or the Universe. Here we also discuss the Mantra meditation which thrives on the popular belief and accepted truth that repeating a mantra expounds tremendous power.
