Meditation is a wonderful thing. In fact, this is probably one of the most important tools to beginning your spiritual journey, especially if you want to become a Psychic. Meditation allows your mind to relax and take the attention off the million things going on in your world, head and life. Meditation is being still and going inward to peace and calm with or without a focus. There are many, many different varieties of meditation, all beneficial, you just have to decide what feels comfortable to you.
I like to meditate every day if possible for at least 10 to 30 minutes. Being a Psychic Medium, this has been essential to my development. Meditation allows the mind to slow down and creates a space for spirit to communicate. I like to run my energy while meditating as this helps to clear any negative energies that I may have picked up that aren't serving me. I also love to meditate while listening to classical music, meditation CD's that consist of directed meditations for specific purposes (meeting your spirit guide, affirmations, healing, etc.), singing bowls and simple relaxing music. Sometimes I will just go outside and sit in the grass quietly, listening to the sounds of nature. There are no clear rules on what makes a good meditator. You do what works for you. Not everyone meditates the same, some people have a hard time slowing down there mind enough to be still and sit there for any length of time. That is alright too, it takes time to develop the mindfulness to just sit still in peace and quite.
I use meditation for many things. I like to clear my chakras, call my energy back from situations that have depleted it and prepare for giving psychic readings. Meditation is one way to connect to spirit as well as manage your own energy body which is very important for both physical and mental wellbeing.
