Many of my students in my online meditation lessons have asked for some spiritual meditation techniques and scripts.
Many people want to connect with their spiritual selves, to ascend to a higher state of consciousness, and to develop their spirituality. And meditation can certainly help.
Meditation has always been tied to spirituality, from its historical roots in the Vedas of Hinduism, to the teachings of Buddha, to yoga and the New Thought Movements. And as such, there are a lot of spiritual meditation techniques.
I’ve previously written about the various meditations used in Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Taoism, and Jainism. You can read about those via our main menu. Today I’m going to discuss some lesser-known methods.
Let me share with you the very best spiritual meditation scripts and techniques.
Best Spiritual Meditation Techniques & Scripts
Samyama is an advanced spiritual meditation technique from yoga. The aim of Samyama is to achieve absolute oneness (or “absorption” / samadhi) with the object on which we are meditating.
Samyama is an incredibly relaxing technique because it moves us past duality to a point of absolute oneness. When this happens, both the body and mind are utterly relaxed.
Sahaj Samadhi is an easier spiritual meditation technique for beginners. It is a mantra based meditation in which we aim for effortless oneness with the meditation object.
The word Sahaj means “effortless” and “samadhi” means “deep spiritual bliss”. As such, when we practice Sahaj Samadhi we enter an effortless space of spiritual bliss. And yes, it is as wonderfully relaxing as it sounds.
One of the deepest spiritual meditation scripts is Merkaba. This is a profoundly spiritual method with a lot of mythology behind it.
Basically, when we do Merkaba we activate a spiritual energy field called Merkaba, and this in turn leads us to ascend to a higher state of consciousness.
In my experience this is one of the hardest meditation techniques in the world. It is best practiced with a professional teacher. And indeed, I have taught this method to many people in my online meditation lessons.
This is another excellent spiritual meditation script for beginners. It is very relaxing that comes from Kriya Yoga and Tantra.
To perform this method, all we do is meditate while quietly reciting the mantra “Soham” or “Hamsa”. The mantra essentially means that you, the meditator, are made of divine energy. Read my guide for a deeper explanation.
Osho (Very popular modern spiritual meditation techniques)
Many people consider Osho (Rajneesh) to be one of the most spiritual meditation teachers of all time.
Osho used a lot of different movement meditation techniques to help people to connect to the divine. And many people find Osho’s methods incredibly liberating.
One of the most popular types of spiritual meditation techniques are the various chakra methods.
Chakras are “wheels” in the body that help prana (energy) to flow. Opening the chakras increases the flow of energy. In turn, this leads to improved health and wellbeing.
You can choose to meditate on the chakras individually or to do a full chakra meditation that opens all the chakras at once.
Tantra is an incredibly deep spiritual system with many different meditation techniques.
Tantric meditation often incorporates breathing methods, chakras, music, and movement for a whole-health practice.
Given that tantra involves hundreds of different techniques, it is beyond the reach of this article. But I intend to write a guide to tantric meditation soon. Subscribe to my newsletter for updates.
Mantras (the most versatile spiritual meditation technique)
Mantras are a huge topic that spread throughout all different spiritual systems, from Hinduism to Christianity.
Essentially, a mantra is a word that we meditate on. Sometimes we meditate on the sound of the word, and sometimes we meditate on the meaning of the words.
Most popular in Hinduism, mantra meditation became famous in the West mostly through the work of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who created Transcendental Meditation.
Whichever spiritual system you follow, you will find corresponding mantras.
These are my favorite spiritual meditation techniques. Naturally, there are more options. I’ve taught all manner of spiritual meditations in my lessons. And I often show people how to make meditation spiritual instead of simply using meditation as a tool for wellbeing.
When you make meditation spiritual you gain a deeper relationship with your practice, and this can help you to progress to the next level.
