Why Do We Meditate?


The simple answer is we meditate to bring our awareness into presence, or the Now. We know we are present when we are simultaneously aware of our breath and one to two senses (i.e. sight, sound, feel of breeze on skin etc.).

We meditate because we feel a deep inner peace, tranquility and it quiets the mind. Over time, and the more present we are, we develop mindfulness or emotional intelligence, and slowly this transform our minds and lives. The more present we are the more spiritual qualities begin to naturally manifest i.e., loving-kindness, compassion, acceptance, forgiveness, non-judging, equanimity, generosity etc.

From presence we are able to observe our physical senses (i.e., sight, sound etc.), the arisings of feelings, thoughts, and our body. This helps us create separation in our awareness. We come to realize we are not any of these arisings, but merely the awareness of them. Without self realization once we finish our meditation we move back to our busy minds, or ego consciousness. Meditation after self realization becomes an even greater joy, and we simply melt into a deeper presence. The hallmarks of this deep presence include a disruption of time i.e., time flies by, a deep effortless silence, the awareness of our physical bodies partially disappears, and mild visuals can arise.

Meditation is a natural biological process gifted to humans enabling us to move our awareness, or consciousness, from ego to presence, and from presence to the perspectives of the higher self or Unity consciousness (beyond objective reality). Thus meditation enables us to expand or move our awareness (consciousness) beyond the confines of the body-mind in space-time—if we know how.

Most humans, meditation and mystic adepts aside, will need to “supplement” their meditation to achieve this consciousness expansion within or beyond objective reality. This supplementation is achieved using entheogens (i.e., magic mushrooms), combined with conducting meditation at “sacred times” i.e., on the solstices and equinoxes 60-90 minutes before sunrise or sunset (click Meditation Calendar).

This supplementation can be achieved using the Meditation & Magic Mushroom method detailed in my blog (click link). Supplementation effectively provides support of natural biological processes taking place in the brain during meditation by supplying additional brain chemicals (5-hydroxytryptamine-2a serotonin, and/or dopamine), and by boosting our alpha-brainwave voltages (entrainment). You can read more about this physiological supplementation in my book (Discovering Ritual Meditation; see chapters 7 & 8) or via scientific references on this website (click the link).

Meditation supplementation greatly increases the chances of transcending body-mind in space-time, helping us move our awareness beyond objective reality—where we witness profound consciousness experiences (see blog).

Meditation is the means by which we spiritually awaken, spiritually heal, and self realize, and this absolutely transforms our mind and life beyond belief. Do it every day, even without rituals, and watch the transformation unfold.

Without doubt meditation is the single most important thing we can ever learn. I have so much gratitude for our ancient ancestors (i.e., the sun god religion priesthoods) for leaving us their knowledge of consciousness and its movement/expansion (see Discovering Ritual Meditation).

If you’d like to know how to meditate, then please read my blog “How to Meditate for Presence and Rituals”. This is a no frills approach to learning how to meditate from someone who has witnessed Unity consciousness and the higher self beyond objective reality numerous times. I also developed the Transcendental Self Inquiry method then used it to self realize six hours later. Presence is now my natural state of consciousness. Don’t worry we still have an ego afterwards, but its no longer the only show in town!

Thank you and my best wishes to you.

Enhance Your Meditation Using the Free Meditation Calendar


Your meditation can benefit from careful daily and yearly timing to benefit from the Earth’s naturally generated electromagnetic and magnetic fields. Using the Meditation Calendar (sun- and moon- rise/set), I will show you how to time your meditation to benefit from this effect.

Alpha brainwaves detected over the frontal brain (forehead) are a key brainwave signature of those transcending or in deep meditation. These alpha brainwaves can be best augmented by the local environment during sacred times, i.e., at the winter solstice sunrise, summer solstice sunset, equinox sunrises, and eclipses, and with daily sunrise and sunsets. Sacred time coincides with the times when the Earth’s electromagnetic environment (Schumann resonances) and its magnetic field strength (geomagnetic activity) naturally peak. In meditating at sacred time and with daily sunrise/sets, you can benefit from this augmentation effect.

This augmentation happens because of a natural process called brainwave entrainment, in which naturally generated electromagnetic wave fields (Schumann resonances) enhance the meditator’s frontal brain alpha brainwaves. These Schumann resonances (7.8 hertz) are naturally generated by the global lightning centers and at sunrise and sunset. The meditator’s alpha brainwaves are generated by the “third eye” in the frontal brain. This region of the brain is responsible for propagating the meditation process in conjunction with the thalamus (mid-brain), resulting in the executive control over the brain’s function, emotional regulation, and brain activity silencing. This entrainment improves the depth of meditation, which can result in a change of consciousness, giving you direct access to transcendental and unitive states of consciousness. This is why routine meditation around sunrise and sunsets and during lightning storms feels more special than at other times.

You can access the resource library for links to an array of scientific articles referencing this content or read my book. If you wish to benefit from the sunrise or sunset power effect with your routine meditation, then select your meditation time by starting meditation 60–30 minutes before your local sunrise or sunset on the day(s) required, determined using the meditation calendar. See the output summary below and its user-friendly interface.



Sacredly Timed Ritual Meditation (Hallucinogens)

The effect is strongest at sacred times. Once upon a time, these dates and times were ubiquitously celebrated as the most important ritual-festival dates for the Sun god religions of ancient Egypt, India, and pre-Colombian Central and South America. This was encoded in their pyramid and temple alignments, and is symbolically embedded in their Sun god art and icons. It is the same fingerprint the ancient Sun god world over.

If you wish to benefit from the power effect at the winter solstice sunrise, summer solstice sunset, and the equinox sunrise/set, during the conduct of ritual meditation, then select your ritual timing for these dates, so it commences 60–90 minutes before sunrise or sunset by using the Meditation Calendar.

If you are serious about experiencing transcendental states of consciousness, then sacredly timed meditation, using an eyes-closed, focused attention type of meditation, focused on the awareness of breath in the Now in sensory isolation with the mind in effortless silence, after consuming entheogens (hallucinogens), meditating with your body comfortably seated and magnetically aligned gives you the access codes to the transcendental realm. Follow my blog as I share my ritual know-how and experiences, and you can help by participating in this discussion.

Thank you and my best wishes.
