Meditation is a very powerful tool. Meditation is the source of cultivating what the ancient yogis referred to as the siddhis, which are spiritual attainments and other special gifts. It is also key to the ascension of kundalini energy up the sushumna nadi. Sitting in stillness, cultivating self-control, governance of mind and gaining clarity in consciousness can reshape our thoughts. (Why does the quality of our thoughts matter?) So much of our mind is programmed by media or shaped by the values of our society and the direct influence of our parents. Meditation is a tool for authentically coming into our own while heightening our awareness of the superconscious mind.
