When you listen or utter the word meditation, it only means to be calm and serene in a peaceful environment where there would be no one to disturb you. While you are at it, you tend to often slip into a slumber where you meet your inner self to release the tension and stress that seems to be cluttering your mind since long. The emotional confusion is often caused by factors such as professional pressure, personal issues with family, finances, etc. While you meditate, you often sit in a comfortable position or simply lie down with no one to disturb you. Meditation can be of varied forms, and the use of guided music is something that has taken people by storm.
