My Meditation Experience
When I meditate, I start with a few deep breaths. Or as many as I like in order to get a little more relaxed.
Sometimes, it is easy to go into a meditative state. Sometimes, it is a little more difficult and it takes a little while to get to the state of silence.
The difficulty is due to obstacles that can happen when you meditate. These obstacles can be restlessness, worry, drowsiness, sensual desire, and few more reasons.
Eventually, I reach a point where the meditation experience is beautiful.
It is not easy to describe, but I will try. It is a stillness and silence that bring such peace. I feel so calm. The entire world, the space and time, it all feels so pristine.
Every breath I take is so pure and enjoyable. It is like a thirst is finally quenched after years of not drinking a single drop of water.
The Various Brain Wave Levels
The meditation journey I just described can be explained in scientific terms. There are various levels of brain waves. They are Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta Waves Levels.
Beta Waves Level
Most of us are usually at the Beta Waves level. This is the normal waking consciousness. In fact, when we begin any meditation practice, we are at the Betas Waves level.
Alpha Waves Level
As we sit comfortably in meditation, as we close our eyes, our brain waves begin to go to the Alpha Waves Level. Our brains go to the Alpha Waves Level even when we are not concentrating or working on any problems.
As we continue to meditate, there will be more Alpha Waves appearing. This means we are getting deeper into the meditative state. As mentioned above, this is when I start to feel more at peace when I meditate, and also feel more relaxed.
Theta Waves Level
When we continue to meditate, the Theta Waves start to appear. At this stage, we are able to stay longer and longer at the object of our meditation. If it is the breath, then that is the object of the meditation.
In what I shared above, I often reach this state. It feels very blissful.
And there is no more thought. Just breathing.
The body is now more relaxed. The mind is more relaxed.
Delta Waves Level
When we go deeper into meditation, we begin to have Delta Waves. This is a very deep state of meditation. And the meditator begins to have spiritual experiences.
So, what is the Correct State of Meditation?
It all depends on what is your goal for meditation. If it is simply for rest and relaxation, then going to the Alpha Waves Level may be good enough for some of you.
Of course, the Theta Waves Level is ideal because this is the stage where you can get really relaxed. Many people, including me, have said that when they emerge from this state, they feel so refreshed.
Like they have slept for hours.
Then there are those who would like to explore the spiritual worlds of meditation. And that would be to achieve the Delta Waves Level.
As mentioned, at this level, a meditator will have spiritual experiences. Some have experienced the third eye opening, some astral travel, some do mudras, and many more other spiritual experiences.
