What is an enlightened meditation?
All things considered, this is important to question: what is an enlightened meditation?
More interestingly, one has to wonder what constitutes an enlightened meditation and how this distinguishes itself from a relatively unenlightened one?
What is an enlightened meditation when meditation is an enlightening experience, to begin with? Well, by the same token, one could definitely validly argue that all meditation is indeed valid. However, this doesn’t lessen the fact that some meditation sessions are more enlightening than usual.
Still, the main theme isn’t about whether or not meditation is enlightening. Thus, it is more about what makes meditation more veil shattering than normal and more importantly why this phenomenon occurs the way it does.
Accordingly, this article will dissect and hop on the bandwagon of this line of reasoning. After all, there is a reason why meditation, as a niche and as a lifestyle, is increasingly popular by the minute.
There is a method to the madness when wanders realize that they are not lost in a hole of rabbits.
The following table of contents outline what to expect concerning what is an enlightened meditation:
- Veil of Illusion
- Clear as Day
- Sixth Sense
- Connecting the Dots
- Ego Apocalypse
- Trees and Forest
- Being Enlightened Meditation
Eureka, epihany, aha moment. Tomato, tomato.
You name it! The underlying message is the same: insight that spurs seemingly out of nowhere.
Instead, that is the catch, Your enlightenment from meditation isn’t just the spur of the moment. If anything, you are just consciously realizing something or someone that was previously operating on the subconscious or even unconscious levels. In layman’s terms, your deepest, innermost knowings dawn on you — a total reference to Breaking Dawn.
You begin to see your life in a much different light. Suddenly, you come into enlightened awareness. And not just any enlightened awareness. But, one that makes you aware of how flexible and illusory reality can be. How you can bend it to meet the needs of your framework or agenda.
Then, you become more receptive to the flow of ideas, intuition, and all things inspirational! It is a matter of learning how to trust yourself as we are all on a path of enlightenment, spiritually and otherwise.
As a result, enlightened meditation allows you to see the same life with a different, more divergent perspective. You’d be shocked how your creative juices can really get your enlightenment going.
Let your gut inform you out of your rut.
Veil of Illusion
Enlightenment helps you to see life with a more well-informed, calculated, and insightful lens. What’s more?
Meditation is one of the quickest, most effective ways to see what needs to change. What amends need to take place.
I can personally attest to this. For example, I realized that life is less about what happens to you and more about what happens for you. Regardless of how painful or challenging a situation might be, it is still an opportunity.
An invaluable opportunity to grow, develop, learn, and ultimately mature. Likewise, even if seems like the particular situation is all but positive, every situation is blessed, disguised, or otherwise.
Essentially, it is a veil of illusion because it is not at all what it seems. To clarify, when I say it I am referring to the obstacles that present themselves as mass, systemic perpetrators of soul-crushing.
Indeed, nothing in life is meant to break you. Everything is meant to build you and your character.
And even if you are at ground zero, enlightened meditation is your own sky-high hero. It is an opportunity to crack through the sensitive, vile ego to see the real unbreakable, resilient, angelic you. It leaves you feeling much bigger and better than you could have ever imagined.
You begin to realize that your hinted potential is the tip of the iceberg only.
To be enlightened is to remember how to crack the veil of illusion, only better.
Clear as Day
Speaking of breaking dawn, it is hard to disagree with the fact that enlightened meditation is a resounding step in the right direction. This is because enlightenment is all about seeing life clearer. It is all about embracing the sunshine that’s beaming right around the corner.
Yet, it is hardly about getting rid of the rain.
When I say clear as day I mean having the meta-cognition to discern when you are being blind. In other words, you grow in the awareness that you know what you don’t know.
I phrase it, “I know what I don’t know.” You are aware of your limitations to the point that you understand how to push them. How to pull everything together in tandem.
That’s what so incredible about enlightenment on meditation. You are able to focus on your progress without being as distracted by what doesn’t quite make sense.
Yes, it rains when it pours, then again the sun will always come out.
You begin to see your life for what it. Everything you say about it is of secondary importance. However, you understand that words have power, especially the mantras you repeat to yourself throughout the day.
Above all, you see when your level of awareness is rainy and work to give your vision more quality sunlight.
It’s not that the rain has gone. It’s that you know how to meditate in your sunny zone.
I see dead people…
Or maybe, not quite.
Perhaps, it’s a situation in which your intuition has just been heightened. You can feel ESP (extra sensory perception) when you are experiencing an enlightened experience. Speaking of which, I can recount my entire body vibrating during and after particularly enlightened meditations.
It was in those moments where it felt like everything was in universal sync. On top of this, I began to see indigo orbs of light float around my sight. Again, mind you, my eyes were pretty much closed the entire time.
The deeper I went into meditation, the more I could see things beyond and behind my naked eye. The more enhanced my senses became. I also noticed that because of dozens of enlightened meditations, my crown chakra buzzes quite often. This is especially evident when I find someone or something unusually enlightening at any given time.
Yes, meditation in general makes you more sensitive to energy. But, enlightened meditation makes you more selective about the energy you give and receive.
As you become more aware of your aura, others become easier to detect. End of story.
Indeed, enlightenment doesn’t stop with you. It goes both ways. All ways.
Plus, activating your sixth sense is needed in a world in which the left-brain gets all the praise.
Enlightened meditation is the sixth sense fully realized.
Connecting the Dots
I am pretty sure we have big dippers for a reason. And, the most fascinating attribute of this is how we only see a fraction of the real deal. Most estimates argue that we only perceive four percent of our total reality. But, that’s the fun part.
What would it serve our race if we had all the answers? The question is: are we more like answers or questions by nature?
Nonetheless, enlightenment entails learning from your mistakes and growing from the lessons you’ve accrued. And if you are anything like Tenet, you might find pleasure in the fact that the future has already happened.
The dots are already connected. Quite simply, you are merely going back to see everything unfold.
Still, the end result is the same: everything adds up. So, even if your life seems relatively cryptic to this day, meditation is the route to a rather enlightening experience. One that even puts the Matrix rabbit hole to shame.
As a result, you might see yourself as a part of a giant cosmic tapestry. You are one with all that is. At least, you are alone together with the entire human race and beyond, to say the least.
It’s facetious to think about how disproportionate your body feels during meditation. Sometimes your limbs feel too small or too big. Other times you get this sensation that you are just floating in a timeless, spaceless abyss.
Despite all this, enlightened meditation, at best, is a crucial opportunity to connect the dots both around and within.
To connect the dots is to see the screen of life from a state of enlightenment.
How interesting? Contrary to popular belief, the apocalypse doesn’t have much to do with the end of the world. It is more about revelation. I think a more adequate and refined way of going about this is being enlightened. Attaining enlightenment over how revelation is literally any and everything.
More importantly, the end of the world doesn’t always have to be literal. As a matter of fact, ego death is everything but. Thus, the ego apocalypse is realizing the limitations and shortcomings of the ego. For instance, pride can get in the way of clear seeing as it is preoccupied with being right, flexing its authority, and getting its way.
When your ego hits a midlife crisis, it faces an identity lift. Yes, you read that correctly.
You begin to differentiate your face from your mask. Suddenly, you see you are less Hannibal Lector and more Clarence than you originally anticipated.
When meditation leads you to a brand-new state of enlightened awareness, you understand that the end is never the end. You fathom the reality that the end is merely a new beginning. In the end (forgive the pun), the cycle continues.
Above all, you see just how destructive and uncharacteristically you the ego can be. By the same token, you progressively embrace your shadow side by way of inner light working.
If anything, enlightenment is all about working on yourself and allowing life to play out the way it’s meant to.
Yes, essentially, the world of ego is ending. But, the new youniverse is beginning in just a hair.
Trees and Forest
Without a doubt, you are the forest just as much as you are the trees. The whole just as much as the part. And, that’s the thesis of an enlightened meditation: finding the balance between the limitless and the limited.
The infinite and the finite. The powerful and the powerless.
You feel so small, yet so big at the same time. You realize that you are both the God/dess within and around. Then, more than anything else, you see that you are the physical incarnation of all that is.
Clearly, you are reuniting with the non-material source of enlightenment. With the inherent, rich soul of meditation in full bloom and harvest.
Indeed, enlightened meditation is like please and thank you all in one. The best of all worlds. The epitome of harmony and balance. And that’s what we should all seek. A refined, clear, well-informed perspective that finds a happy medium between self-entitlement and self-depreciation.
There is such magic in reigniting the spark within and realize that you are the wildfire around and then some. It’s like waking up from a spell that fed you with a mantra that you were only ordinary. Only to wake up to your true extraordinariness.
Moreover, despite the fact that the parts seem incongruent with the whole or vice versa, this is rarely if ever the case. Everything and everyone is interconnected.
As a result, you see that you are everything and nothing. An abyss of infinite potential that changes like leaves.
Indeed, enlightened meditation is the forest and the trees.
As the tree, you serve the forest’s enlightened being. As the forest, you serve trees upon mindful rest.
Being Enlightened Meditation
Once more, I can’t stress this enough: meditation is all about ultimately being. Yet, first and foremost, it entails aligning your thoughts and feelings on a wavelength that spells one word: willingness. This is the route to neutrality and more importantly an expanded state of awareness, which can help you elevate to the higher vibrations such as enlightenment (700+).
But, part of being enlightened is knowing all the ways in which you self-sabotage. Having the guts to admit in your heart how you are contracted by life, the people you associated, the direction of your energy, and ultimately yourself. It’s realizing you have nothing to feel ashamed of and everything to be enlightened about — to reminisce on a well-known Marie Curie quote.
Then again, enlightenment requires accepting every part of yourself. Validating your worthy, special, uniquely divine purpose.
In conclusion, being enlightened meditation is the key to not only living the examined life but also resonating with your vibrational mind: the language and intent of your soul.
To be enlightened meditation is to focus on, grow with, and be your greatest version as a pro.

Your comment that it’s not what happens to you, but for you it’s such a more positive way of looking at things. I think we are all lost in the trees and can only see what is happening to us and how impossible it appears to be to control, or change it
The fact that the dots are already connected and we are just going back to see them unfold is powerful.
I agree that knowing how we self sabotage is certainly essential to moving forward in a more enlightened way.

This is a very interesting and thought provoking article on what is enlightened meditation and the benefits. I had not come across the terminology of enlightened meditation before, but at the end of the day, most meditation sessions could be classified as enlightening.
What really resonates with me is that enlightened meditation is the sixth sense fully realised.
Yeah, same. It is always interesting to step back and see things through the customer’s perspective. Believe it or not, writing this article was quite an enlightened experience, or should I say, meditation.
