During the hectic schedule of our day-to-day life, we have come a long way in the passage of success that our life has become confined to words like money, job, and success. Such a lifestyle has made us dumb and blind to our inner selves. We have acquired those worldly blinkers and have made us ignore the voice of our inner self.

Awareness of our inside self is necessary, and it’s like we feed ourselves self-daily with food and water since the inner self also requires nourishment. But to balance the nourishment of ourselves from the inside, one first needs to know what is the inner self.

Every individual lives life with an identity which is publicly known and which acts as a  source of distinction from others. Individuality is one’s physical identity known to the world and people living in this world— whereas inner self is the voice of the psychological self-existing inside this public individual.

The inner self of an individual has originated from the spiritual heart of the universal religion. The term universal religion does not mean belief made by man but has created man and always stays with him in the form of one’s inner self.

To get in touch with our inner selves, we need to hear our hearts. This voice is also called intuition. Not only would listening help, but there is also a need to look within oneself. Watching within and listening to the internal voice means undergoing a process of self-awareness. The inner self is a permanent part of one’s being, and so it is a guide, as well as the mentor of an individual to whom one can always return to get solutions and conclusions of life. This eternal self is your spirit, and so it often acts as a healing device at the time distress and tension.

The eternal self is the other image of God. The inner-self is an infinite sphere of concentrated light, which symbolizes the point of human origin. Meditation is a process through which one cannot only realize his/her inner self, but through its regular practice can see the intense light of the human origin.

Meditation Practitioners of ancient times have evolved a divine chart by which one can understand the stages that transform the mediator’s inner self. After the process of transformation, there is the attainment of the religious person of God. The Chart shows three stages. And these three are called the trinity of the self. First is the spirit of light, which stands on the top.

The lower part is the essence of a body or a being. The mediatorís consciousness stands in between both these levels. Mediatorsí knowledge is the actual strength to understand the divine presence. The attainment of the divine self is a long evolutionary process, and it reveals itself to the mediator in the form of light. The mediator views this luminous image while he is meditating. Note that this spark is the essence of life. It bestows consciousness in one’s being, makes self-awareness possible, and above all, is responsible for faculties that humans enjoy.

So, if one wants to realize the divine soul and wishes to acquire its divine intellectuality, meditation is the practice that will surely help. In this modern-day and age, the adverse effects of stress are unavoidable. People have tried various methods to help cope with stress, from exercise and diet to alternative methods like biofeedback. The most effective way to deal with stress is not one of these modern methods but rather a 5,000-year-old idea: Meditation. Meditation not only helps reduce the adverse effects of fear but also leads to a better sense of well-being by uniting the mind and body.

Meditation not only leads to the realization of the divine self, but it is helpful in its initial stages also as it ensures a helping hand in curing minor day-to-day problems such as stress and lack of concentration.
