Reflective Meditation and Reflection

People all around the world practice spiritual meditation in various religions and cultures. Some folks do it to feel calm and relaxed, while others use it to clear their thoughts. Some even use it to feel more connected to something bigger than themselves. Scientists have studied how meditation helps people relax, but it's a bit trickier to measure how it affects our spiritual side.

Even though it's not easy to measure, there's a lot of scientific information about different forms of spiritual meditation.
