The Secrets of Deep Meditation
Deep meditation. I can think of nothing else that provides the same sense of peace, clarity and fulfilment than the experience of deep, relaxing meditation.

If you are looking for some deeper secrets...
Sure enough, you may find that a new technique gives your meditation a boost, but in most cases, once you have learned how to meditate, then the best way to improve the depth of your meditation is keep using the same technique, but to approach it a little differently (I'll get into this more in a moment). It may also be beneficial to you to make some positive changes to your lifestyle.
So instead of pondering over techniques or trying to learn some new trick, take a step back with me and let’s consider the larger picture of your life. If deep, blissful meditation is your sincere goal, then let’s explore the real factors that can help. You are already capable of deep meditation. What you may need are some reminders about what it takes to "go deep".
1. Your overall wellbeing – body, mind and soul
This article on body, mind and soul will help you to understand just how intimately connected the various components of your holistic self are. In it, I share a great story that shows how unexpected progress can be made in meditation, by addressing all aspects of personal health and healing.
The good news is that you do have the ability to reduce this build up of inner noise, even while you go about your normal daily routine!
Mindfulness is a powerful practice that will help prevent a buildup of mental chatter and prepare you for very deep meditation. Mindfulness is an incredibly powerful practice that can transform not only your meditations, but also the quality of your normal daily life.
These articles on mindfulness will help you to master your mind so that when you choose to meditate you can go much deeper, much faster.
I cannot stress just how important it is to understand the role of intention and how it can transform your meditations completely.
4. Binaural Audio
All that's really involved is listening to music that contains a technology known as "binaural beats". It's easy, it's very relaxing, and for many people, it brings about a turning point in their meditation and leads to a rapid acceleration in depth. Click here for more information.
5. Commitment and Persistence
I know it’s tempting to skip over this section, but I urge you to read this article on commitment. In it, I describe some of the steps you can take to easily elevate the status of meditation in your life and how the status of meditation in your life has a great bearing on how deeply you will be able to meditate.
All meditation techniques have the same ultimate aim, and while there are many factors that can influence your ability to meditate deeply, quite often it’s what you do when you are not meditating that can make all the difference!
