Is It Important To Meditate During A Spiritual Awakening? 1920 1080 Christina Lopes

Some people just don’t like to meditate or don’t know how to do it. But when you’re going through a spiritual awakening, meditation may be more important than you think.

Meditation has been used for thousands of years to achieve higher states of consciousness, calm the mind, decrease anxiety, live in peace, and access inner wisdom.

And I can attest that the practice can be miraculous in your life. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t started meditating back in 2013 when my spiritual awakening began.

But meditation isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. This week, I got this question from a viewer:

“Is meditation necessary during a spiritual awakening?”

I could sense that this viewer was asking this question probably because he didn’t like meditating or didn’t know how to do it.

But to answer this question well, we need to take a step back and ask some other ones. So in this video, we’ll actually be answering 4 questions total:

1. What is meditation exactly?
2. Is meditation necessary during a spiritual awakening?
3. How do you meditate?
4. What types of meditation are there?

Here’s the audio version of this video:

  • I love to practice Vipanassa Meditation. I attend 10 day silent retreats at least once a year and is like going through a major cleanse of my mind. Of course you must continue the practice at home. I meditate 30 minutes in the morning and 1 hour before I go to bed. ❤️🙏

  • Transcendental meditation for the past 45 years 20 minutes each time.

    • I’ve heard a lot about Transcendental meditation but have never practiced it. However, I do love using mantras in meditation.

  • Thanks for this great advice, Christina, very helpful indeed.

  • Hi I meditate usually at night before bed to calm my anxiety and for sleep ,either listen to the binaural beats or nature sounds or native American which I find very soothing , it calms my overthinking ,I’ve been meditating for about five years now and have used your open your heart meditation for my life’s purpose and the next day all I heard was love songs constantly in my head all day
    I love sitting in the bath in the morning and ask my spirit guides to ground and protect me and I just listen ,I always look at the white tiles and they go a beautiful golden yellow and pulse in and out until I say thankyou to my spirit guides for helping me through tough times
    I’m not sure what type of empath I am ,plant ?and when I look at Google maps to find a place my whole body goes forward as if I’m being dragged with the searching from my chest ! Don’t know if that makes sense Christina
    I’m very sensitive to emotions and weather so would love to find out more
    I’ve been in the hermit stage for at least 3 yrs and hoping I’m coming through to realize my true potential and after watching your amazing videos I now know I’m not crazy
    Much love and light to you xx

  • Thanks for that video…I can send it to my friends who are still considering meditation. On my spiritual journey, started out with guided meditations, the Hundred (100) Syllable Mantra of Vajrasattva, various offerings from the Chopra Center & Oprah and subliminal sessions from Learning Strategies corporation. Eventually, I switched to vipassana meditation and use the Waking Up app by Sam Harris. Lately, I’ve incorporated walking meditation and perform an at-home-meditation-retreat; half-day is approx 4 hours and full-day is approx 7 hours long.

  • Hello,
    I learned to meditate from the beginning with that very method you call the hard way: shut the thoughts. We were taught to do nothing with the mind and with the body. I wouldn’t say it worked easily, but it was very doable. First the mind freaked out, the body started to itch everywhere, I would scratch myself here and there, my mind movie was running, some people tend to fall asleep,… After about 10 to 15 minutes, the mind calmed down for a little while. Then everything started over again…
    In the first days I did not reach any moment without thoughts, but the mind did quiet down, and it went better and better.
    After 3-4 days, I had the first moment without thoughts, just one or two seconds. Then I realized it and thought “Oh – I just was void of thoughts”. But this was of course – a thought.
    With time, these moments came more frequently and stayed for longer. They were fantastic. You just feel like you are growing, like your space is getting wider, like you are filling the entire room. And you are entirely in this observer modus from wich Christina is talking. You don’t just observe your body, mind and emotions, you observe the entire environment. You do observe your mind, but it is a quiet mind. You do observe your feelings, but you are on a high emotional level, almost floating. Emotions are very quiet, yet strong and clean at this level. You also observe your body, but it is a body that feels well, and if you have some ailments, they are more distant because you are well aware that you are not this body, not this pain. You also observe your surroundings. You hear very fine, you perceive so much of what is going on around you, its incredible.
    Nowadays, when I meditate, I usually need about 3-5 minutes to get my first short moment void of thoughts. It then takes me about 10-15 minutes to reach a long phase. And yes, sometimes I do not reach such moments, but I always manage to quiet down my mind to some degree.
    I later learned some other meditation techniques. They are good, but the above is still my favorite.
    Have fun with meditation – and grow!

  • Your truly amazing. I have been through some very traumatic difficult times in my life. I have recently came out of a extremely dark depressed state that led me to an Awakening. It is changing my life and your videos are helping so much.
    Thank you Christina for sharing your insight and your wisdom. I’ve felt like you are speaking to my heart.
    Kimberly ❤️
