How to Improve Your Meditation Spiritual Experience

meditation spiritual experience

Meditation is the practice of emptying the mind and concentrating on a single point. Most often meditation is done to reach a meditative state known as samadhi or enlightenment. However, meditation can also have a spiritual experience associated with it. Some say this is possible because meditation is not about reaching a certain place or state but about staying in contact with our deeper self. It is the journey to consciousness that is really important.

An Overview

So how do you know if meditation is a spiritual experience? One way to find out is to reconnect with your personal power. You can test this by meditating for 10 minutes without focusing on anything else. After the first time, you may not even be able to concentrate on something very closely, much less think clearly. This can indicate that meditation has not been helpful. On the other hand, if you are able to stay focused and can sense your awareness expanding, then you are likely having a spiritual experience.

Another indication is if you are able to hear sounds of internal conversation. The sound may be a voice you recognize, or it may be an external sound. Some people have described the experience as the sound of consciousness expanding and then contracting again. You might wonder what this has to do with meditation. The answer is that through meditation we allow ourselves to experience being in the presence of consciousness itself.

Ask Yourself First

If after having a good meditation, you are still unsure about staying focused, then ask yourself, “What does this feel like?” Each experience is different, so you will have to experience it for yourself. It might feel like floating, it may feel like sinking, it could be a rising or falling sensation, or it might be a combination of sensations. You should try to remember as many of these feelings as possible. This will help you distinguish your meditation from others.

Some people have described the spiritual feeling as a lightness of being, as well as an inner knowing. Some people have described the experience as the opposite of being. They felt a sense of lostness. Some people have described the feeling as a feeling of detachment from everything. A spiritual teacher can help you recognize your own feelings associated with your meditation.

It is important to understand that spiritual meditation should not be forced. It is your choice. It does not mean that you have to follow a certain path, such as Buddhist meditation. It is your individual journey to discover yourself. You should allow yourself the time and space to discover your inner self. It is only through this spiritual exploration that you will gain insight into who you really are.

Enjoy Meditation

Remember to enjoy yourself during your meditation. If you want to meditate on your own, you can choose a location and time to do so. You should not force yourself if you have any doubts. In fact, if you feel like you are about to lose focus, you should stop and rest. This will ensure that you are not distracted and will make for a better experience.

The point of the spiritual journey is to learn more about ourselves. Through the process of spiritual growth, we come to terms with our true self. We then become able to love ourselves more and become more accepting of others. When we are more accepting of others, we become a better person and are able to assist them in their time of need.

Final Tip

Meditation is not about competition. Do not compare yourself to other meditation teachers. Meditation is a completely different experience from a contest. There is no winner or loser in a meditation situation. Comparing ourselves to another can only serve to divide us and create more problems.

You have the ability to change your own vibration. When you meditate, you become aware of what your body is feeling. You may find that you are walking through fear or are walking into debt. You can learn to release these feelings by learning a variety of meditation techniques. When you practice meditation on a regular basis, you will begin to notice a change in vibration that will benefit you in all aspects of your life.


To increase your spiritual growth, you need to first open your mind to new ideas and perceptions. Think about the most powerful thing that you can do right now and go after it. The challenge may be something that you fear, but that is only because you are not yet willing to look at things from a new perspective. If you think about debt and how much stress it causes in your life and the lives of those around you, and then start making some positive changes, you will find that your perception of that situation has changed. As you practice meditation regularly, you will begin to see the connection between what is happening in your world and your place of spirit.
