How meditation changed my life

“If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes things worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there’s room to hear more subtle things — that’s when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more.”                            -Steve Jobs

meditation changed my life

I started meditation about 8 years ago. There was not much of a difference in the first few years but I continued as a part of daily routine to add a “tick” in my “To Do” list. My personality started changing once I started reaching deeper into my consciousness level. Yes, meditation changed my life forever. The state where you are not aware of your self as a part of your body but as a part of the superconscious entity. The state where “Thoughts” do not have any place to tell you the difference between the good and the bad of this relative world. The state where you are a part of the absolute and do not relate to the consequences of the changes of this relative world. Once you become used to entering that state regularly, your personality changes drastically. You become aware of the fact that if thoughts are not there, every living being in the world is the same. There is no difference between any two living beings in the state of super consciousness. Everybody becomes a part of the absolute. Somehow, I am feeling a bit awkward using the word “Super Consciousness”. It makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. I don’t know why. Hence, I will prefer to call it, the state of altered consciousness.

The first change that it brought in my personality was the submission of ego. I, no longer enjoy ego massage and I, no longer notice people manipulating their personalities in order to prove themselves different from others. I do not fight my ego, I do not suppress my ego or I do not control my ego. For me, it is not a trait to react. I just don’t feel its presence. For me, the ego is neither a negative nor a positive trait. It just doesn’t exist for me.

I do not carry any burden or stress in my day to day daily life because, although I know that I am a part of this relative world, still I see all the action as a third person and enjoy the whole action as if I am watching a movie. Even if I am living in this relative world, I always sub-consciously know that I am the part of the absolute.

Fear of death has completely disappeared. Because I know that I am not this body. I am using this body as a vehicle only. Fear of death has transformed into the curiosity of knowing what awaits after this life.



Finally, let me write about the sheer experience of being in the meditative stage. I will give you an example. I normally do my meditation in my library which is not part of our house but it is on the other side of our back garden. Normally the area is quite peaceful and when I am alone at the library, I hardly hear any sound. As I start my meditation, all of a sudden the quietness appears to be disappearing and the sound of the wind, chirping of the birds etc. gets amplified. I started noticing these sounds which I wasn’t just a few minutes ago. Further, as I slip into deep meditation, the place resumes quietness again. All the sounds surrounding me start to disappear again. Although, we know that our surrounding mirrors our state of mind, its real manifestation is quite fascinating.

Meditation And Law Of Attraction

Meditation And Law Of Attraction Compliment Each Other

”The greatest revolution in our generation is that of human beings, who by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”
-Marilyn Ferguson

Our minds are conditioned in such a way that we tend to think and act in a predefined way. This process of conditioning the mind starts as soon as we are born. And who conditions it? This is done by our society, our country, our education system, our religion, etc., in a very organized way. We get our minds conditioned unknowingly and innocently. We are made to feel that it is good because it gives a direction to our life.

But on the contrary, it is too bad for us because it hinders our originality and restricts our imagination. Living life is all about exploring new possibilities and experiencing new ideas. Living life is not about following a routine designed by some institution. Also, we start following these rules blindly. Many of these norms and regulations are flawed because these are made by people with limited knowledge. And then society or religion tells us how to live our lives. Come on, Mr X and Mr Y have come to live in this world different purposes. How can they live similarly? That’s how our lifestyle starts opposing natural cosmic laws instead of resonating with it. That is where meditation and law of attraction complement each other. I recall a short but interesting story to give you an idea of how our mind gets conditioned.

A man jokingly said to a very educated person with all his seriousness that tomorrow it is going to rain gold coins. The educated man obviously responded that you have gone crazy. This man said the same thing to an uneducated farmer, and the farmer’s reply was, well, it’s great if it really happens. The man laughingly said, you really think there may be a possibility of raining gold coins? The farmers said why not if such a giant tree gets encapsulated in a tiny seed, why can’t gold coins rain? Are you now getting how our mind gets conditioned? We expect things based on our past experiences. For us, only what we know is a possibility. We need to change that perspective. Our thoughts create our reality. The cosmic universe can generate an abundance of possibilities.

Meditation and law of attractionThe whole universe moves with mathematical precision, and movement of every living and non-living entity in the world has an effect on the rest of the universe and vice versa. Can you imagine if one planet, e.g. mars, slows down or turns its direction, it may result in the collapse of the whole universe? What I mean to say is, one living entity or a group can not assume that it is entirely independent and its actions have no effect on the rest of the universe. Every living or non-living object are interdependent, and if everybody’s actions resonate with the rest of the universe, then the universe responds back in a positive way. But, unfortunately, today’s materialistic world has completely gone against natural cosmic laws and that is the reason why we today are living in such a pathetic world. Physics has already made many discoveries in this field by coming up with unified field and string theories. They all give enough evidence that every living or non-living entity emerges from one source of energy.



Anyway, coming back to our main topic, meditation helps us achieve that alignment where our actions resonate with the universal laws instead of going against it. We approach inwards towards that source of energy which can follow universal cosmic laws in a very natural way.

Law of attraction

Meditation is considered by many as a very complicated process which it is not. Our mind is quite fickle (Our brain is conditioned to live in that kind of state), and hence we need to give it a job so that we could bring our mind to a calm state. So, why not ask our brain to keep its attention to our breathing pattern. So whenever any thoughts disturb your meditation, ask our mind to bring its attention to our breathing pattern. So, we have assigned a job to the brain to keep it engaged, we are free to carry on with our meditation. Now, you need to discipline yourself to do this meditation twice a day for 30 minutes and see the result in 6 months. You will find your whole life wholly transformed within these 6 months. The only key to success is practice.

Now, you must be wondering where does the law of attraction come in this discussion? It does. When our actions start following universal cosmic laws, the universe responds back to our needs and requirements in a very positive way. It shows us ways to achieve abundance in every possible way. It happens on such a subtle level that it happens even before you realize how and what made it happen. That is why I have titled this post Meditation facilitates the law of attraction.

And finally, last but not least, people want to change the world around them, but they want to remain the same. That is not possible. So, first, change yourself for the new situation before you could change your world around you.

Meditation Techniques for Cosmic Adventure

The Worst Advice We’ve Ever Heard About meditation techniques

The thing about meditation is that you become more and more YOU. – David Lynch

Let me explain why I thought of writing this post about meditation techniques. I grew up in a very traditional orthodox family in India. During my childhood, the pressure of following traditional rituals was so much that I started hating that environment. As soon as I left home, I almost rebelled against that orthodox Hindu environment. I declared myself an atheist and lived with my new belief system for more than 15 years. As I grew older, I started realizing that actually, I am not what I am trying to project myself. I was a deeply spiritual person, but by declaring myself as an atheist, I was trying to take my revenge towards a society which was imposing their ideas and beliefs on me whether I like it or not. The system was such that if you agree with them, you are a good boy and if you do not agree with them, you are a bad boy. During my teen years, I lived with that guilt throughout that I am not a good boy. Fortunately, I got hold of a few outstanding books which changed my life forever. I read almost all the books by Deepak Chopra, “Same Soul Many Bodies” by Dr Brian Weiss, “Home with God” by Neale Walsh etc. All these books helped me understand myself and get rid of all the negative energies that I was living with.

Meditation Techniques

I learn t how to think spiritually and truthfully without following any religion. And that is how I wanted to live since my childhood. I respect all religion, but I refuse to be a salesman of any religion. I tried to think about cosmic structure and principles instead of following religious rituals. The topic of soul-body integration introduced me to the world of meditation. I was too satisfied with newly found interests, and instead of the following spirituality as a boring subject or process, I started noticing it as a real cosmic adventure.

Today, many options are available to learn the art of meditation, and I have tried a few of them. Every style has its positive points, but it all depends on you what satisfies you the most.



Deepak Chopra has given a new dimension to meditation techniques and spirituality. Maybe in my case, I showed more interest in what he says because; I was able to relate with his style of liberal philosophies better than a religious preacher. He always backed up his spiritual principles with scientific theories. Deepak Chopra gives too much importance to the audio-visual frequencies around us, and he says these frequencies have the power to alter our state of consciousness. Meditation can elevate our level of awareness from being conscious of the subconscious and then to superconscious. I have followed Deepak Chopra’s style of meditation in the past where he gives too much importance to the lighting condition of the place of meditation and the vibrations that are created in the atmosphere by speaking a few Sanskrit mantras. I found this style very, very useful and works well, especially if you are using meditation as a tool for your stress management. It works. This was all going OK when Deepak Chopra came out with a new product “Dream Weaver”, and for me, it surpassed all my expectations. It is a mind-boggling product, and you have to use it to understand what I am trying to say. It is complicated to express in words, the state of mind that this product creates.

Deepak Chopra

The basic principle of this product is the same that audio-video frequencies around us have the power to alter our level of consciousness. This time, Deepak Chopra has taken the help of electronic gadgets to induce these frequencies in our minds. If nothing else, you will at least feel relaxed as soon as you start using it. This product is a real game-changer, and it has completely changed the concept of meditation techniques.

Bramh Kumaris Raj Yoga:

I completed one week Raj Yoga free course and loved the experience. I came to know about them accidentally. I read in one of our local newspapers that St. James Theatre is showing a free one-hour movie on the concept of “time”. I went to the theatre, and there you had to write your details before you enter the theatre. As soon as I wrote my address, the lady exclaimed! Oh, you are our neighbour. I did not know, but Bramha Kumari’s meditation centre was at one of the houses on our street, which was a few blocks from our house.

Tree of Life

So, I decided to enrol for their free meditation course. I liked their style of meditation and sermons. It is one of those places where you realize the beauty in simplicity. Their method of meditation is emptying your mind from all kind of thoughts. It is a bit difficult to do, but you improve with regular practice and feel better and more peaceful every time you do it. The teachers there are full of compassion in their approach, and you feel great just for being there.

My Very Own Meditation Technique:

Earlier I had stated that I take meditation and spirituality as a cosmic adventure, and that is why in addition to following meditation techniques experts, I keep experimenting with my ideas as well. At times I get mind-blowing results. Here I am sharing one of my techniques which have given very productive results for me. I have named this meditation technique “Meditate by letting your imagination go wild”.Let imagination go wild

Our thoughts, fantasies and imaginations are restricted by laws of physics, our brain’s social conditioning, religious conditioning etc. as we have always been taught these facts and hence our mind gets conditioned to restrictions. Not only the laws of physics but the cause and effect theory also restrict our imagination. We need to train our brain to take that flight of imagination unrestricted by scientific laws known to us. We all know, the outcome of our efforts is never proportional to the efforts that we put in. Life will be too dull and smooth if you are sure that if you do this, the result will be this. All our efforts are being controlled by an unknown source and by a strange logic. We can never quantify the struggle of a person from all logical point of views, i.e. intelligence, the logic applied and amount of effort put in.
So, one day I decided to let my imagination go wild irrespective of any logic. I still remember I was sitting at a secluded beach in Wellington and the sun was setting in. I closed my eyes and let my brain go wild all out. Within minutes, I imagined myself flying in the sky at full speed without my body. It was as if my soul is out and is travelling in the space. I was moving away from earth. I was in the middle of the universe and was watching the ground below. The whole sky was dark, and the twinkling stars were giving the entire scene a fantastic beauty. I moved towards the Milky Way. I had that sense of freedom where no force is imposing any control over me. I was in complete control of myself. I felt very light like a snowflake.
I am giving my experience only as an example. You are free to choose any imagination. The beauty of this kind of meditation is that you can be very creative. Unlike other meditation techniques where you put an effort to block any thought intruding your mind, here you become a part of thoughtlessness. Instead of placing an attempt to stop the external intruding thoughts, here, you create your internal thought process which automatically stops the foreign thought. I have been doing it for a few months now, and I am sure if you do it for 20 minutes every day, you will see the difference in your personality. You will not only enjoy those 20 minutes, but it will become a perfect way to lower your day to day stress.
Overall the whole exercise is gratifying. Try it out and let me know whether it created any difference in your life.
And finally, watch this video to improve whatever meditation techniques you follow.
