What is a Peak Meditation Experience

A Peak Meditation Experience (PME) can sometimes be described by a more common term as a vision. One definition of a vision is something seen in a dream or trance with a supernatural appearance that usually conveys a revelation or a spiritual experience. 

Peak Meditation Experiences are often spiritual in nature and can be life changing or profound in their teachings. PME’s of this type, act like big downloads of data. The messaging might come in like a compressed computer file but takes time to unpack to get its full meaning. By unpack I mean reviewing the download over possibly several meditations to understand its meaning for you. 

PME’s can also show up in lucid dreams and other manifestations of consciousness such as a paranormal experience. There are 3-types of PME’s  1. The vision type 2. The paranormal type 3. epiphanies of understanding from self-inquiry into one’s own life experiences. All of these have the potential to change your life or worldview and restructure your view of conscious reality both in the physical conscious world and in the non-physical conscious world. 

 Yes, we have a non-physical conscious reality life we pay almost no attention to. It exists in the dream state, deep sleep, daydreams and can be accessed while in meditation, all non-physical states. We are in this state normally at least during sleep or about 8 hours a day. That is a big part of our lives not to be aware of and explore.

You may have had your own peak meditation experience and want to understand it. You are not alone it is estimated over 80 percent of us have had some type of experience that fits our peak meditation experience definition. I give many examples of my experiences in my book. 

My PME’s began with me at age 3 or 4 and have continued to this day. After nearly 70 years, hundreds of PME’s and epiphanies have come together to give me a deeper, richer appreciation of reality and consciousness than I could have ever experienced without the combination of PME’s and self-inquiry.

There is a grave misunderstanding by the public about these higher states of consciousness appearing in us, giving us valuable information by which to evolve ourselves. Any open discussion about these apparitions is frequently treated negatively and called out as WUWU or some other unflattering characterization.  

This cultural treatment by western society dampens the benefit of thousands of years of research into consciousness that may have begun in India with the Veda’s, Upanishads and later the Yoga sutras. However, it has been present in every indigenous culture since the beginning of time although not as well documented or widely researched as those of India in my opinion.

A feature with indigenous cultures has been the teaching and practices were sanctioned, taught, and passed along by a shaman, a spiritual and often gifted agent in the tribe that performs healing and guided spiritual journeys. This is done by accessing the larger existence consciousness system in which the universe resides and is fundamental to all that we experience. These shaman are alive and well in many cultures and their practices go on everyday all over the world.

PME’s are information obtained from existence consciousness (EC), which I have come to learn is the foundation of all things. It took me decades to understand what EC is, yet I had experienced it hundreds if not thousands of times before I came to terms with it.   

If you are an experienced meditator, you me may know EC but not know the rest of the story. The rest of the story is that it contains all the information that has ever been or will ever be and EC will share it with you. You can have an intimate relationship with it, and it will illuminate a path for your evolution if you do the work to evolve yourself.

Now to the more important concept of experiencing EC, rather than trying to define it. Here is my inadequate attempt to communicate what it is from my experience. 

Every time or anytime I am in the presence of EC I feel as though I am wrapped in a blanket of security where nothing can harm me. Peace, serenity, an overwhelming presence of life, compassion, caring, and love are all around. That all things are as they should be no matter how bad, painful, or overwhelming. There is purpose to all of it even though I may not understand it in the moment. There is purpose to my life and that is to evolve following the teachings it lays out and makes available to me. I can pay attention or ignore those teachings, I can do bad things, good things, or great things it makes no judgments. 

Let us return to PME’s and some of the most common ways EC will deliver them to us 1. It will provide a beautifully orchestrated, surreal, metaphorical dream or meditation experience that stretches us beyond our normal experiences to see reality in a different way 2. It will give us verifiable information, that we can know as the truth through any number of ways, a whispered voice, a vision, your own words spoken to you etc. 3. It will attach emotion to an experience to make the PME even more impactful such as meeting up with deceased family member (a paranormal experience) or by creating a test to teach us to overcome the greatest threat to the evolution of our consciousness…fear 4. It will provide an opportunity for us to be of service to the greater system of EC by being of service to others.

Grand visions are not necessary, many PME’s are created from incremental understandings of ourselves through self-inquiry and being on the Road to Peak Meditation Experiences as well as having a deeper understanding of the meditation process. When we open up to these experiences and the information that can be obtained from EC it can quickly become a PME.

Anyone can learn these techniques, everyone has the hard wiring of consciousness within them, which is their connection to EC, they just have to understand what it is and how to access it.

I have created a system through decades of practice, often going down dead-end roads, that can shortcut the process for those who are seeking answers as I have all of my life. The next section PME Wisdom Terms begins the How-to phase.
