Meditation is a habitual process of your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts . It is a private devotion or mental exercise consisting of a number of techniques of concentration , contemplation and abstraction to heighten the spiritual awareness. Meditation is mostly concerned about your attention, where it is directed to and how it alters or changes a person’s consciousness. Early in the morning and at night are considered the best time for doing meditation . Through focusing on your internal energy one can gain the intimacy with the various subtle energy centres called Chakras Buddhism,Hinduism or Jainism all traditions state that the powers must not distract one from the ultimate goal of self purification .
