How To Use Meditation To Stop Time & Make It Faster Or Slower

  • Post category:news

New research has revealed that meditation affects our perception of time, self and space, creating feelings of selflessness and timelessness. It is possible to use meditation to stop time, or to make it pass faster or slower. Time is a subjective matter. When we are anxious or depressed, time seems to pass slowly.
