Meditation Questions and Our Answers

Can meditation help me relax?
When you reach the meditative state, your brain waves have slowed down similar to when you are asleep.  Your body automatically is more relaxed than when you are awake.  Even a few minutes of meditation can have a profound, relaxing effect on your body and your stress level. One of the meditations that come with the app focuses on  helping you relax.

What is the difference between prayer and meditation?
In the traditional Christian religions, people are taught to pray – that is, to commune with God and let God know what is in their hearts and minds. The part that is often not taught is the corollary to prayer: listening to God’s response, or meditation.

What has been practiced so often is a one-way conversation with God – man doing all the talking and expecting God to do all the listening. This is like going to a friend whose advice you value, telling them everything that troubles you and then leaving before that friend has the opportunity to reply.

The primary spiritual reason to meditate is to be able to listen to God’s answers. Many people report getting a message from God in a dream. The ultimate goal of meditation is connecting with your own higher self – that part of you that has always been connected with the God-source.

If you are always talking, you cannot be listening.
