TBK made a negative comment about people who meditate 7+ hours daily. I commented back that meditation can heal the body. So now I am going to share personal experiences with meditation.

I practiced qigong for years, sometimes daily, sometimes weekly, sometimes monthly, if I got really busy, but about 5 years after I started my qigong practice, I had an accident. Someone slammed down the trunk of a car onto my index finger and my finger was caught from the middle knuckle to the fingertip. I immediately went into a special meditation as the person searched through their enormous pile of keys. Seconds passed before the key was found, maybe 7-9. The man thought my finger had been lopped off, he slammed it so hard. But my finger was there as I told him to find me some cayenne to stop the bleeding, which was surprisingly not much. After a 3 hour drive home, I packed my finger with herbs, a special poultice that heals everything from bone to skin and then I sat down to meditate. Since this a raw forum, I will state that in this instance all the herbs I used were raw vegan. I meditated for hours. How many I don't remember but basically all night. The meditation I did is not specifically to heal disease but it is a byproduct of the meditation. The next day when I unwrapped my finger, half of the wound was gone completely without a trace, while the other half was still there. Some would call this a miracle. How often does skin heal totally with no trace after being cut the day before? The only way I was able to do that was to harness the energy that I had cultivated over years to vigorously circulate in my body continuously for hours (it's also a lot more complicated than that). Without energy, it wouldn't have worked, hence this is not a technique one can learn in one day.

So, going back to TBK's comment about the waste of life to meditate 7-12 hours daily, I would say it depends on why someone is meditating. I have met so many old ladies and some old men who had their lives restored after doing enough qigong and meditation, usually one hour a day, but I just gave you an example, where all night was merited. I have full use of my finger, whereas I have worked with clients who have limited mobility in a finger they broke. Granted, the part of my finger that didn't heal over night actually took months to fully heal and that was my lesson that I actually attracted to myself because I had enough arthritic patients with deformed fingers that I wanted to know how to heal. So, it gave me a chance to experiment on myself using herbs, gemstones and acupuncture.

As amazing as qigong and meditation is, I don't teach them to my clients for any specific problems, and I actually rarely share it with clients period. Healing is only a byproduct of a successful mind and body practice and cannot be pursued as the sole goal. However, when a person has practiced a long time and has a lot of energy, then when injured or contaminated, healing takes place much faster.

I have listened to many Christian preachers warn against meditation and I find their concerns are very valid. I have seen evidence to support their concerns. If all one has seen of the metaphysical world is satanism, witchcraft and channeling, then I can see their point. But wholesome meditation is as natural as stretching the body. HOw wholesome is it to unlock the natural healing mechanisms of the body!
